Aku Penternak&Pemerah Susu
YES I am a milkmaid!
My milk didn't come in until the 4th day,the doctor told me that the milk will come in a couple of days.hmmm..took me few days before I could visibly see that my milk was coming in. I made a point to nurse exactly whenever Kazim wants on both sides for at least 5 minutes each (night and day) on the first day of his life,this help to stimulate my boobies,also to ensure Kazim will receive his full quota of colostrum.
During my confinement days, I ate white turnip almost everyday!Lucky us, my husband 'sister;Kak In is a pediatrician, she advised us to add turnips in my diet as these vege can increase milk supply.All this while, Im aware about fenugreek seeds and fennel or Organic Milmaid Tea which have been used for centuries as a remedies to increase milk supply.
How to cook ?
Hmm mumsy made a home-made-white turnip-soup.Yummylicious!
Mcm makan..hmm..sup sayur biasa..tp sedap( walau lobak putih ni pahit tp kalau kena cara masak..seryes sedapp nk mati okehh)
Kalau fenugreek seed, mkn jugak tp letak dlm nasi dagang jelah..ok perr kan:p.Other than that,air rebusan/air akar kayu is a must!
Now, I dont think I need anything because I have too much breast milk.Oversupply breast milk sometimes can create problems to the mother or baby.Alhamdulillah susu ni cukup untuk Kazim dan harap2 cukup la sampai Kazim 2 tahun..amin!
p.s: This week ada aqiqah Adzryl(Anita'son), hmm tatau la boleh gi ke tak tp sgt teringin, pastu ada wedding kwn suamiku jugak..next week ada besday Qaseh( which Im looking forward, she's my lil princess!)
dan yang paling happening lusa besday adindaku Cik Na..hmmm..dah besar rupanya adik kami yer..dan pandai 'cair' ngn Edward Cullen mehhh!Kalau nak Edward as gift tak dapekk nak nolong dik nun!
