Birthday girl dapat sumi jer...

since we have celebrates her birthday 2 weeks earlier so on the day we just give her "sumi"... hehehehe

Hepi bestday balqis...

Happy Birthday to may dearest daughter Balqis Batrisya...  The day falls on 26th November ... ok now i will load few pictures taken on the day we celebrates with my parents, my brothers & sisters at Kenney Rogers, IOI Mall. Now you are 3 years old.... hope you will be a good girl (solellah) and excell in what you most interest in....

One stupid rubber thing no 10...

My car's back & break light won't turn off even switch & engin was off...

We were in KL that time when this happends. We were just arrived & leaving our daughter & son in the house. Me return to our car to collect out luggage, leaving hubby babysit & have a rest. Then I find out that our tail light was on. I thought maybe the switch was on. But then I "tengok" that the front light was off... Hhmmm... I tried to switch on & off again & again. I tried to start the engin & switching of the security alarm. But the tail light was still on. I don't want to wait too long or our car battery would be drained. So I quickly take our bags & went up to the house to inform my hubby.

So he went down & examine for himself before end up to pull out the car battery for that night.
I was so exhausted and fell asleep while breastfeeding my baby. But my hubby can't go to sleep because of this problem. He was worried sick coz we are departing back to Alor Setar tomorrow morning after my job interview.

Nak hantar kedai check pun duit x der. Duit ada ngam2 for toll & car fuel. Nak beli makanan pun x cukup. Nasib ada duit syiling skit. Tu pun ada kot RM20 utk beli makanan for 3 of us for 2 days... Hubby was surfing & googling for hours till morning to find what went wrong. It couldn't be wiring coz switch was off. But who knows we are not mechanic. I was up at 2 am accompany him. But still didn't find answer. He went to car again & he found something on the floor, that thing da pecah n don't know want was it n what for. So we assume it must be this thing has link or kena mengena with the tail light problem.

But time for my interview da dekat so have to get prepared. Take bath & give bath... Bersiapla... Kerete? Tawakkal jer la... Bawak slow2. Duit x der...

After the interview we went straight back to alor setar takut still on highway malam... Susah.

Today, we discovered what was that thing my hubby found on the floor. Yes it is true it does have something to do with that tail light problem. It name was "pad paddle stopper". So the problem solved by glue'ing 5cent there. Haish... Pening kepala cari what was the problem. Only that was it! Kalau hantar kedai mekanik tak tahu apa... Abis aku nyer kete, kene rungkai. Tak pun abis duit kene tipu.

that this was no 10.

So, pengajaran kali ini... Google first before you buy or do anything... :)

My previous post:

Potty train

Well actually this potty train session was done way before I quit my job & decide to stay here in in-law's house to take care of my mother in-law that was sick & still till today. But back then the decision made bcos of nobody was there to take care of her other than us.

Back to potty train. Balqis da bole tell me when she want's to poop then. When she is about one years old. But the potty train stops & didn't continue due to I'm working & always came home late. So the potty training stops to poop in toilet only. Not even start to pee in the toilet.

But, she refused to poop in the toilet ever since we stay here in the in-law's house. She refused to use the w.c coz it was BLUE colored w.c. We didn't forced her since the toilet is not friendly to children anyway. Coz there is no hand bidet only kolah air, so many mosquitos & the tiles are slippery. So it was dangerous for a small child to be there, since she is very playful & might not be listening to me screaming when she meets up with water. Macam itik....

So then, I've decided to potty train her last month. Full potty train... For first few day there were "incidents". Sebab belum sure about pee like. Then later she can inform us to go to toilet but still can't control it. And now she can inform us and control to pee in the toilet. But still she refuse to poop on that w.c. I don't know what else to do. I know she knows when she wants to poop only she refused to.

Memang yakin... Sebab in my mother's house last week bole plak poop kat toilet.

Nampak gayanya kene start cari rumah lain & kerja la... Kerja? Memang tengah cari... Since my brother & sister in-law dah ada to took care of my mother in-law. My business? I will continue online... Kedai tutup.

This is due my MIL more in need of money then we staying here. Since she was unable to move or even sit up. My SIL alone can take care of my MIL. Duit my FIL sorang nye kuderat tak mampu nak tampung perbelanjaan makanan & ubatan for my MIL. There to many thing to buy just to make sure she is healthy & recovering. Pampers (4-5 times daily), baby wipes (200sheet for 2 weeks), diabetic milk (1 large tin for 5 days), diabetic strip for check sugar level (4 kali sehari) & other medications.

So for that reason we need to have extra money to help her & to help our selves to. Hutang keliling pinggang sape nak bayar? Itu hari okla ada duit simpanan... Sekarang da kering... Bukan duit jer da kering... Apa saja yg bernilai abis jual da... Mana yg penting jer x jual lagi... Sape nak tolong? Along? Hahaha... Nak mintak tolong pun segan.... Hanya Allah la tempat kami mengadu... Manusia? Mmm... Tahulah macam mana...

Alhamdulillah... We still have tempat berteduh & bole makan.

Please pray for us to be strong in doing deeds & permudahkan untuk kami membantu lagi....

Jaundice @ Demam Kuning (newborn)

What is Jaundice? @ Apa itu Demam Kuning?

Not many parents have knowledge about this... even me as a mother also have no idea of what is Jaundice until my child were told having jaundice.. I usually hear the name of jaundice @ demam kuning. But do not know what is it @ ignored about it. We as new parents will be panic when people around always saying that how dangerous the jaundice is to our child and she or he could die. But we were never been told how to prevent or how to took care of our child if were infected.

Here I would share my experience with other mothers & parents out there who are concern about their child.

In a normal newborns, jaundice refers to the yellow color of the skin and whites of the eyes caused by excess bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin is produced by the normal breakdown of red blood cells. (Demam kuning adalah disebabkan oleh proses pemecahan sel darah merah di dalam badan yang menghasilkan bilirubin)

Normally, bilirubin passes through the liver and is excreted as bile through the intestines. Jaundice occurs when bilirubin builds up faster than a newborn's liver can break it down and pass it from the body. Reasons for this include:
  • Newborns make more bilirubin than adults do since they have more turnover of red blood cells.
  • A newborn baby's still-developing liver may not yet be able to remove adequate bilirubin from the blood.
  • Too large an amount of bilirubin is reabsorbed from the intestines before the baby gets rid of it in the stool.
High levels of bilirubin — usually above 25 mg — can cause deafness, cerebral palsy, or other forms of brain damage in some babies. In less common cases, jaundice may indicate the presence of another condition, such as an infection or a thyroid problem. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that all infants should be examined for jaundice within a few days of birth.

Types of Jaundice
The most common types of jaundice are:

Physiological (normal) jaundice: occurring in most newborns, this mild jaundice is due to the immaturity of the baby's liver, which leads to a slow processing of bilirubin. It generally appears at 2 to 4 days of age and disappears by 1 to 2 weeks of age.

Jaundice of prematurity: occurs frequently in premature babies since they are even less ready to excrete bilirubin effectively. Jaundice in premature babies needs to be treated at a lower bilirubin level than in full term babies in order to avoid complications.

Breastfeeding jaundice: jaundice can occur when a breastfeeding baby is not getting enough breast milk because of difficulty with breastfeeding or because the mother's milk isn’t in yet. This is not caused by a problem with the breast milk itself, but by the baby not getting enough to drink.

ok.. that's all for now... kita continue next time... :)

Why my baby poop green?

Hhmmm... Got some questions wondering in my mind when my little prince poop went green last 2 weeks... Again actually... The first time was about a month ago... When it happens... As usual I will automatically when for googlling. Searching for an answer. Many website or forum said it was because of lack of hind milk..

"green poop can be a sign of too much foremilk and no hind milk."

Hind milk is the fatty milk with thick white colored milk (mine la) & foremilk is the water like milk.

And if your infant really are pooping green because of it. Usually your infant will also exhibit:

1. Fussiness and/or gassiness
2. Frequent stools, often green, curdy and mucusy
3. Gulping, gasping and choking while nursing
4. Excessive weight gain
5. Apparent lack of "comfort" nursing
6. Discomfort when breastfeeding, sometimes so intense that baby goes on strike
7. Possible early weaning (often close to the first birthday, sometimes sooner)

Mother may experience:

1. Strong or even painful sensation when milk ejects
2. Frequent spraying of milk from one or both breasts
3. Excessive leaking
4. More than one let-down per nursing session
5. Repeated mastitis (breast infections)

But, my baby & i hasn't have all those symptoms and experience. So I search again. Until I came to one site mentioning his son poop go green just because his wife ate a banana... It was hilarious at first when I read it.

Then I tried to screen my past food consumed and made an experiment on myself... What I have eaten that week new and ordinary in my menu... And I end up finding it was "laici tin"... Hehehe... Itu rupanya yang dia x mau! :) then last two weeks again green poop... But I didn't consume any laici tin. But I do makan salted kacang tong garden brand. Then again experiment on myself... Yes! That was it... Ok new experience and new info.

Dulu x pernah jadi macam nie maybe because my daughter was not exclusively breastfeed since at nanny house there are times my bekalan susu shot and need to top up dengan formula milk. But actually was not... Saje bagi sikit... Belambak lagi ada dalam fridge. Anyway that time I was more secure in giving formula milk to her because of my penemuan my breastmilk was boiled not warmed before feeding... Abis milk tu pecah minyak... I don't know apa jadi to all the good nutritions in that milk... Was-was gak... I did tegur them. But the answer buat aku malas nak cakap lebih... "makcik dah biasa buat macam tu... dari dulu zaman "amy" kecik-kecik lagi." Because of that I thought of giving my little princess formula milk while with the nanny. I only breastfeed her before sending her to nanny & time ambil dia balik (usually in car right in front of nanny's house). Direct breastfeed jer la... Breastmilk yang dah perah tu campur dalam food dia.

Hmmm... Dah jauh menyimpang dari topik asal nie... Anyway, it is an info that I would want to share and remind of myself later if it do happens again. Hope this info will help other mommy like me. :)
