on breastfeeding

I'd say Firas is a fussy baby, especially when it comes to nursing. Yep see my EBM stock, people would say...wow bestnyerr dia nih! Nevertheless my breastfeeding journey is wayyy harder than one could ever imagine.

Thank god i found this useful link that has answered all my questions pertaining to fussy babies, distractible babies and what nots. Hopefully i'll persevere on way forward, though at times i do feel like giving up especially when he turned on his speaker...OUT LOUD macam org sakit!

Some excerpt from the link: http://www.kellymom.com/babyconcerns/distractible-baby.html

Latch on, suck a moment, pull off... latch on, suck a moment, pull off. Nurse a minute, pull away to smile at mom. Nurse a minute, pull away to see who just walked in the room. Nurse a minute, pull away to listen to the TV...

But in Firas case, he'll cry his lungs out during the first few minutes before nursing....or even during the nursing...macam la ade org pukul dia :p And these are what i did so far to overcome the problem:

- Nursing in a quiet, darkened, boring room
- Nursing while in motion (walking, hold him and gently bounce, sway back and forth ) - ni mmg mencabar kesabaranku...sakit pinggang nak dodoi2 dia

Moga Allah permudahkan perjalananku ini.....

hmm..bole geng dgn zafyra nih. sama jek perangainye. takpe yati, iAllah bile dia dah 4 mo above ok sket. tapi still senang distracted with surroundings. doa2 je la dia tumbuh gigi lambat sikit. baby jenis ni suka2 dia je nak pull off or pusing kiri kanan without open wide mulut dulu. main tarikk je huhuh.

anyways, kellymom site is best for bfeeding mom. dulu masa dlm pantang byk blajar/baca dari site tu gak le =)

yep, mmg the site also mention about babywearing, carry baby in sling and the likes. but then i had a history of backache, now pon dah start sakit balik. Afraid carrying the baby will make my condition worsen...ntahla huda huhuhu

2-3 hari ni mmg duk surf pasal babywearing jer...almost beli tapi tak jadi...camner eh pening den!

my suggestion is for u to try out 1st. susah gak nak explain2 in words when the best is to experience it urself :)

i have along history of backache too, but babywearing has never been the culprit. so far bole babywear zafyra like 2 hr plus, alhamdulillah no backpain at all. anyways, wanna try my scootababy? maybe we can meet up (dgn baby skali le kan hehe) for u to try.

kind of excited when i read thru the experiences of all the babywearers...tgk video on how to put on the carriers, etc. Takpe, i think will get sling first and see how it goes.

aku sgt stress skang! Firas ngamuk giler time bf direct, rasanyer dia skang prefer bottle. Dulu aku stress bila dia takmo bottle, skang ni dia suke bottle plak...bertambah stress dan sedey aku huhuhu. Besarnye dugaan Dia harap2 aku masih bley bertahan. Baru 3 months ni...perjlnan masih jauh.....:(
