the natural parenting...

I’m really tied up with bundles of works at office currently,with budgeting and audits around..huh!( even not really much compared with my prev job..Alhamdulillah)..
I still can go back happily at 5.30pm with my dearest lady B (huhu my boss)..
I still able to focus to my family..I don’t know what will happen to me if I still at my prev post..Works like hell.Alhamdulillah…Thanks to Him…

I wished to update lotsa activities happened from Eidul Adha till now..but don’t know what happened, uploading the pictures really took my times..so I just leave it with hope to do it at another day…InsyaAllah..(even my mom keep asking where’s the latest pixs of her son..??huhu..)

Back to the above topics, I was inspired lately by the articles of Puan Farah from Sarakids about the Natural Parenting..I keep reading and try to figure out either mommy and papa at the rite track or not..so worry!I’m sure other mommies out there mesti at least ada reference either books or magz or google in parenting websites..ait??
so do I..my Dr Miriam Stoppard’s book and Babycentre really help me a lot..till sometime we try to follow all the things mentioned inside..

When I read the articles, I just cleared up my mind again..Natural parenting is about the natural or most basics things to do dalam nak membesarkan our lil one..to be a good caliph..
good to have reference but yet ensure the basic thing has been fulfilled..
but on top of that, doa is the most important things ..
(not sure whether my ideas is correct or not..up to u galz..)

Some of the natural parenting highlighted by Puan Farah are:

1. Breastfeeding..

This is the most basics things in natural parenting..
Alhamdullilah Allah memakbulkan doa sy time preggy dulu2..always doa that I will able to feed my baby..exclusively 6months up to 2 years feed..
Till now the milk still enuff for Adam ..Even I always amazed with mommies at susuibu.com who really committed do the pumping till 3x /day..due to my workload, 1 time is enuff for me to get 10-12 oz..syukur!

2. Healthy food..
Sebaiknya kita sediakan makanan untuk baby kita..air tangan ibu is another things to bond our baby to us..selain bfeed..
This part ..I really feel regretted sb lmbt sgt intro porridge to Adam..I supplied him with jar foods,Heinz from 6 months to 10 months..plus cereal as back up..
Till I got confident to cook for him, and rite now I really enjoyed to cook for my lil one..
Working mommy like me, really need to find solution of this..
What I did..I make the bubur on weekend..various flavor every weeks..try to freeze them in fridge..every morning wake up I will just steam and bring to nursery..
think u all will not agreed with me rite..
I just keep to myself..rather than I gv him cereal, this food maybe less nutritious due to steam ..at least it better than nothing..!I wish to cook daily for him..tp masa tak mengizinkan mommy dear..sorry:)

3. Co sleep with ur baby…
For those who still feeding their babies will sure sleep next to ur baby rite..
Pike balik..berhabuk dah cot tu..LMemudah kan kita sebenarnye..
takyah lah nak ikut matsalleh letak baby bilik asing..till the rite time, then we will separate him to next room..

4. Minimize chemical exposure to ur baby..
BPA free..that’s the rite words! Even AVENT pun dah intro the BPA free bottle..

5. We are the best teacher.. learning is fun!
This is my fave thing..when ur baby turn up to 1 even lesser..u will sure enjoy this time..
I try my best to put all the activities with my baby..
Talk as much as u can with ur baby..(even my son started to speak German…I guessed..or Tamil..who knows..)..layan je lah..
Weekend is perfect time for us to dance with Barney..mmg kalau tgk aksi2 mommy…huh..papa pun naik risau…haha..but really enjoying and can see him smiling happily..maklumlah tak yah nak pergi scool today..:P
Swimming is another activity that I started to introduce since Adam was at 5 months..now when I showed him the swimming custom ..he will help me pakaikan baju dia..kalau tak susah nak pakai baju..cam perang!
Out of all things..the one that I figured out, apa je yg kita teached our lil one, jgn cepat putus asa..keep doing it..till one day he will show u the things u teached them before..
I teached Adam how tu turun form katil..bila dia start crawling..about 7mnths..everytime dia nak mengelungsor, I will pull his leg..and say leg first dear..!keep doing it..till about 10 months..he know how to get up from the bed/sofas and touched safely to floor..good boy!Sumtime without us around..
Too many things I hv planned..time and money pun constraint..InsyaAllah one day..Rite now I tgh pike nak masukkan Adam kat place like the Gymboree..kat Subang Parade pun ada..nantilah ada masa nak gie survey…and nak jugak deco Adam’s room..so that he will get the room to express his ideas..hehe..tak sabar nak play water colors with him..

6. Last but not least tawakal…
My mom teached me once, bila baby kita mamai nak lelap tu..take the time to slow talk to him..call their names and advice him ape2lah..then tiup kat ubun2 kepala dia..
All that we have planned, Allah yg menentukan..

So I really wished to be a good/consistent/committed mommy in growing up my kid…
With the websites and talks available, hopefully all of these will help me ..and frenz to share all the gud and bad infos..
I’m glad to be part of blogger mommies as U gals really inspired me..sometime we tend to overlook the small2 things..mmuuaaahhhsss to u galz..
I will try to think that I’m not the buziest mommy as ramai lagik out there yg tied up with their job…business and other things..

Oklah..my breast dah full sgt..sakit2..now time to pump it out..
Long entry but hopefully we can share the gud things together..

Till then..

Nadia,
I cook every weekend and freeze them as well.. i know people commented about it, but agree, it's way better than giving food in the jar.. bukan tak nak buat hari2, but that's the best we can do at the moment kan.. so, just letting you know.. u're not alone :)

Anne..so happy to know I'm not alone..Allah tahu niat kita,InsyaAllah our babies will grow healthy..hope u can share ur recipe for Imran's food..:)mesti best..yumyum

nadia, as for me, i find it surprising that aydein doesnt like food from jar. so all the food from jars, down the drain! he likes the rusks tho. and the mashed fruits i've slowly introduced him. and its okay to feel whatever ure feeling. bcoz we're not perfect. we can TRY to do the best we can, but we're not perfect. so dont beat urself up over it ok :)

im glad to know that i covered almost everything yang u mentioned above except the exclusive breastfeeding part becoz keadaan i kurang mengizinkan. but still, im trying my best to breastfeed him as much as i can! so in my opinion, as long as we know we're doing our best, there is no need to fret over it. parenthood is a never ending learning process. we need to enjoy every minute of it! ;)
