4 months Rauhah

She's 4months 3weeks today, still counted as 4months right :P

Major milestone - Officially boleh meniarap at 4months day old. Yippie Yey! 

Giggles a lot when her daddy do funny faces or making fun of her. I notice, a simple hee-hee sounds already could makes her laugh out loud. I bought her squeak toys at 3months old but she hardly focus on it but now she utilized it by grabbing and exploring the toys for a few minutes which normally would end up into her mouth -_-"


She already started grubbing her gum which caused her drooling all the time. Kalau ade kain kat tangan tu, memang basahlah dengan air liur die. Kalau di sua jari kat mulut die, mmg die akan gigit dengan bersungguhnya dan terasa lah gusi die tu. Still yet, haven't get the chance to find her teether. I don't think it is necessary but just want to avoid her munching her fingers, which may lead sucking her hands.

Sudah kurang minum susu botol. Kalau dulu, she would finish 5/6 bottles of 5 oz at her babysitter but since she's entering 4months old, she started to drink less - only 3 bottles a day. Sedih mase awal2 tgk susu tak habis or tgk bwk balik botol kotor 3/4 je tapi lega bile die breastfeed lame when I'm with her. So ok.

Skarang sudah tahu her schedule that her parents will be home around 6pm-ish. Kak Ju (her babysitter) told me that she refuse to milk in the evening (tsk..tsk..) as Rauhah knows that we will be picking her up and I'll be direct breastfeed her at home.

She even knows her own home! She will act differently when she's at unfamiliar places. I notice it when we bring her back at Kuantan for holidays. She started to panic at the moment she arrived cause my sister straight away bring her in while I'm busy taking our bag from car. I thought it was just temporary and I let my mom bath her. 

Die mula meragam and start crying herself, the loudest ever since her birth! It makes me panic when she refuse to calm down after I hug and feed her bak, which normally it would work. I started to think she is sick and try again to hug her longer than earlier. It takes few minutes before she really calm down and a matter of a second before she starts to smile again. Aih..bikin rungsing ini anak. 

No more poopoo issue. 2/3 days she'll poops. So ok. 

Tidur pun sudah lambat. Tak macam dulu, pukul 7pm dah tidur straight to the next morning. Nowdays, dah tak tentu - she'll play, milk and sleep around 9pm or 11pm! but alhamdulillah, she always sleeps by midnight. Jadi lambat tidur sebab nak main dulu. 

Hubs pun getting more involve with Rauhah. Kalau dulu balik kerja, die akan layan PC lg lama dr layan anak :P tapi skarang full time with Rauhah, if she needs attention as long that doesn't involve bak.  Kekadang jadi risau pun ade kalau senyap je dua beranak ni. Tapi normally this is what they do when I leave them two alone.

Kekadang tu sambil main Dota pon jadi

While he's entertaining Rauhah, I'll be cleaning her bottles, packing her bag for the next day and can do some other chores. My routine also changed. I can finish my housework, dinner, solat and sleep till morning. No more sleep first, house chores later. Yey for me!

Breastfeeding Journey 109

It has been almost 2 months that I didn't really stock up my frozen EBM because my fridge is full that I have trouble keeping my frozen meat/ice cream there as well. Mind the messy arrangement cause it always fall off whenever I open this area.

Double stack at the back of the top fridge

Here as well

My friend told me that non-deep frezer EBM only last for 3months but deep freezer could last for 1 year. Such a waste if I didnt use these frozen EBM but I am super lazy to dig up those EBM at the back  (blame the lazy me for not organized it properly) and I have these thought that thawed EBM is not as yummy as fresh EBM. Haha.

Now, I'm thinking to buy deep freezer but my home is already full with stuffs and by waiting our house to be ready is far way near the future. This is where I'm thinking to donate this to baby in need but not to sure where to start.

Any idea?

Breastfeeding Journey 108

Penah tak tumpahkan susu lepas pam lame gile?

Aku penah.

First time when I'm struggling for 2oz for 40minutes. Ni zaman mendidik Ms B untuk produce milk dengan banyaknya. Aku tak ingat macam mane tumpah tapi aku ingat sampai bile2 2oz aku tu tumpah atas meja dapur. Aku tak nangis tapi aku bengang yang tahap panas telinga. 

Lepas tu aku memang berhati-hati.. up until hari Isnin lepas.

Aku dapat 10oz untuk 20minutes power pumping tapi aku tak tau kenapa kaki aku ni gatal sangat pegi tendang sebotol. Aku sempat selamatkan 2oz, tinggal 7oz je. Masa ni macam..haihh..takde rezeki. Takpe. Mungkin esok lusa ade pulak.

Alhamdulillah, besok tu susu aku banyak gile. Tahap aku tak larat nak kosongkan Ms B sebab botol dah penuh sangat-sangat. 

Pengajarannya; redha bila ujian tu datang. Rezeki tu tak kemana :)

Memburu Serigala

Tersedar pukul 3 pagi, tengok husband takde. Tiada di PC mahupun depan tv.

Sah, pergi memburu ni.

Die dah remind that die akan hilang tp aku dah remind die at least kejutkan or at least text me that he is going. Tujuan nyer nak bg amanat beli buku Rauhah tapi nasib baik tau sendiri :P

In fact, die pilih buku yang aku rase nk lompat bile tengok. Haha. Husband aku adalah jenis 'alah membeli, menang memakai' Kalau bab sale ni, memang his thing. Contoh ea, yogurt drink selalu harga 2rm kan, tetiba jual 1rm, die akan beli 10 botol kalau aku tak wake him to his senses kat situ. Siap aku yang kne letak limit 3 botol je cukup. Die mmg shopaholic kalau sale menggila. =_=

Anyway, back to cerita die memburu. Hubby choose children books for Rauhah that encourage her hand-eye coordination and touching skills. Buku Rauhah murah gile sebab tu kene beli.

Ade ayam, biri-biri, katak, lion pon ade.

RM8 - Touch senses book

RM10 - Pop up book

RM6 - Bounce book.

Semua Rauhah punyer!

Untuk mak Rauhah kene beli juga, kasi sejuk hati sikit. Hehe. I'm looking this kind of book but it's too pricey when we saw at BBstore the other day. This one is super cheap that he don't mind buying :D

RM12 only!!

Ini Husband punyer. Preparation untuk masa akan datang, bile tu xtau lah.

Ini juga sebab die suke ;)

Religious book ade tapi takde Islamic book yer. Yang ade Bibble, Tao ade. Aku assume sebab semua buku dari US. Terjawablah kenapa takde kan. Masih sempat nak pegi lagi tp buku-buku best banyak dah takde.

Next time, nak pegi awal. Kene book babysitter (ehem, hi Angah!)

Breastfeeding Journey 107

Excess lipase and scalding breastmilk

Have you heard?

I think many mothers not aware that our breastmilk would taste sour which might cause our baby rejected EBM and prefer direct feeding. One would claims that they are queen of pumping EBM and have stash of stocked in their fridge but little that they know, one could have this problem with their milk.

From the reading, excess lipase doesn't mean sours the milk. It's just not taste as nyummy as fresh breastmilk. Nothing wrong about it. It's the matter of babies preferences which might the answer of why your baby loves direct feeding/fresh EBM than frozen EBM.

The blog explains a lot on the excess lipase and don't forget to read the comments as well. I have doubts about scalding the milk but in the meantime, I'll remind myself to look for Lactation Consulant when going for Rauhah's check up (cause I dont remember where did I put their contact no -.-)

Will let you know about it! Till then ;)
