The past two, three weeks have seen a tremendous change on Lil Adam's addiction to his fav bonbon. I tried reducing the frequency of BF, simply bcoz I was tired. (Okay, ada sedikit penipuan di situ...sebab I wanted to conceive too). Anyway, memang BF is tiring, and it takes so much of my time. Kalo BF sambil duduk buat keje, harus la sakit pinggang. Maka I always lie down.
There was one day that he didn't ask for the bonbon.
And the following day, I never offered, but as he asked for it, he got it.
Macam tu la hari-hari berikutnya.... I won't be the one offering, unless I just wanna soothe him down or to stop him from monkeying around.
I believe, he will wean-off by himself. Cepat atau lambat, tak kisah la... Kalo dah rezeki macam tu, at least I try.
Nak sapu peria, minyak gamat, sirap bagai... tak sampai hati. So, taktik seterusnya adalah buat muka sedih... (ingat lagi tak, Lil Adam pandai buat expression for Sad and Happy?)... sambil berkata "Bonbon sakit...huk huk huk..."
So, biasanya dia acah-acah je nak gigit, tapi dia tak buat (sambil buat muka noti tu...)
Tapi aritu ada sekali, when I said..."Bonbon sakit la, Adam."
Dia jawab..."Shian bonbon sakit. Takpe, nanti makan ubat ye?"
Now that Lil Adam has had enough of his bonbon…I’m glad that I have done my part as suggested in the hadith:
“Para ibu hendaklah menyusukan anak-anaknya selama dua tahun penuh, iaitu bagi yang ingin menyempurnakan penyusuan itu” – surah Al-Baqarah, ayat 233
I remember those days, when I first pumped the BM. It was a bit hard to get used to it, I mean…it’s funny when once u bf, the other breast would also be automatically stimulated and discharging the white liquid. Nobody told me before!
Lucky MIL was around to help me during my confinement. So, I was like… “Mak! Mak! Tolong...Cepat ambil botol (susu) ke... apa ke... nak tadah ni."
And she came with a cup, only to collect a few drops before it stopped. Hahaha. Lawak pulak rasanya.
Another memory is expressing BM at work. Usually, it’s twice a day. But there were times when I was too busy and only had a chance to pump it once (by lunch time).
Sometimes, I got impromptu visits by students for various purposes while doing it. It’s kinda hard to stop, as from the main door, they would only pass by Faezah’s cubicle before seeing me. Therefore, for privacy, Winie offered me to use her room, further in. Thanks, mate.
There were days when I went back home with my blouse wet (the nursing pads seem unable to retain the discharge). However, alhamdulillah… I have never experienced swollen breasts bcoz of too much BM. Masa nie la perasan sexy! :P
Sometimes, when my buddies were already waiting for me to go out for lunch together, I’d just bring the pump along…and have it expressed in the car. If we were riding in my car, I’ll just ask Sab or Zana to drive, so I could do the business while on our way to the lunch place.
Of course there were also bitter experiences when some irresponsible idiots caused my EBM in the fridge to ruin as I wrote in my previous entries.
I stopped expressing when I moved to our new home, and changed Lil Adam’s sitter. She found it hard to handle the EBM. That was when he was around 15 months. So since then, no more headaches to freeze the EBM, etc. He'd only got his daily dosage of bonbon when I’m with him… before and after office hours, weekends, at nite.
Bitten by the munchkin? Oh…that’s normal. My threshold level is high, so as long as I could stand the pain… I wouldn’t scream.
As he grows, he usually does that to tease me. It’s easy to tell- the naughty smile and those round doe eyes.
But what is that, compared to the pahala I got from every drop that he drinks.
Anyway, I might not be blogging about BF Lil Adam anymore, as he kinda has stopped by now. Sekali-sekala ada la dia selak juga...tau2 je dah masuk dalam mulut, maklumlah sebagai kudap-kudapan nak bagi mata lali nak tido.
And Lil Adam... should u read this one day...
Mama bangga dan happy sangat dapat BF Adam sampai lebih kurang 2 tahun 7 bulan mulai dari saat Adam melihat dunia. Ramai yang tak sangka Mama dapat BF Adam se'lama' ni. Ye la kan? People tend to think big jug contains more :P
I won't forget our first bonding session... with closed eyes, u were trying hard to latch. Sekarang, macam2 aksi stunt Adam buat bila BF ye?
Mama harap, Adam menjadi anak yang bijak hasil daripada susu badan Mama sendiri. Walaupun Mama dah tak BF lagi, Mama tetap sayangkan Adam.
Huhuhu... *mode layan sedih*
