Pressure to submit my thesis plus workload at office (but yet still not as high as KLCC pun..)
But seriously tahap kemalasan ni mmg sgt memuncak!
Bila dah badan pun rasa malas2, banyak yg distracted..one of it is breastfeeding!
Sangat penat bila lately nih Adam suka sangat hang at my B , tahap sampai I feel like nak surrender..
So tired, balik keje, at 9pm dah start nak hang..
It can be worst bila kul 11 dia dah start carik2 lagik..
He can hang still overthere for1-2 hours..and few times till 3-4 am
Sakit betul badan sb mengiring..
Sampai kadang2 tak larat sangat, I asked my hubby to remove him a side..
Sometimes come to worst Adam boleh jadik cranky at night sb I tak nak layan dia bf...
Kalau weekend..MasyaAllah..every 2 hours mesti duk menepek2 at my B..
Ya Allah..nape aku jadik malas sangat ni..
Entah mana hilang semangat nak bf till 2yrs..
Sb Adam tak suka fm, the reason I still bf him..
Ape ni Nadia!!!
Wake up,wake up!!
Not only till 2 yrs..I have to extend more..

Thanks Mama Miya for such a great entry and article..

Extended Breastfeeding -- Handling the Criticism
If it's working for you and your child, and your mothering instinct tells you it's right -- it's right! In my opinion, you're a health-savvy, modern mom, and it seems that your friends and relatives are old-fashioned and misinformed. As a pediatrician and parent, it grieves me to hear well-meaning critics ask a breastfeeding mother, "You're still nursing?" Know that you're actually making a wise, long-term investment in your child's health. Here are a few things to remember that will help you handle any unwarranted criticism:
Science is on your side. I have read many medical journals with articles proving the long-term health benefits of breastfeeding. The incidence of many illnesses, both childhood and adult, are lowered by breastfeeding -- diabetes, heart disease, and central nervous system degenerative disorders (such as multiple sclerosis) to name a few. The most fascinating studies show that the longer and more frequently a mom nurses her baby, the smarter her child is likely to become. The brain grows more during the first two years of life than any other time, nearly tripling in size from birth to two years of age. It's clearly a crucial time for brain development, and the intellectual advantage breastfed babies enjoy is attributed to the "smart fats" unique to mom's breast milk (namely, omega-3 fatty acid, also known as DHA). From head to toe, babies who breastfeed for extended periods of time are healthier overall. They tend to have leaner bodies with less risk of obesity. They also have improved vision, since the eye is similar to the brain in regards to nervous tissue. They have better hearing due to a lower incidence of ear infections. Their dental health is generally good, since the natural sucking action of the breastfed infant helps incoming teeth align properly. Intestinal health is also much better than those of non-breastfed babies, as breast milk is easier to digest, reducing spit-up, reflux, and constipation. A toddler's immune system functions much better since breastmilk contains an immunoglobulin (IGA) which coats the lining of the intestines, which helps prevent germs from penetrating through. Even the skin of these babies is smoother and more supple.
World opinion is on your side. The World Health Organization (WHO) officially recommends mothers breastfeed until three years of age. (Yes, you did read that right!) Even the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends mothers should breastfeed "at least until one year of age and then as long as baby and mother mutually want to."
It's better for your health. Extended breastfeeding reduces the risk of uterine, ovarian, and breast cancers. Breastfeeding women also have a lower incidence of osteoporosis later in life.
It's better for your toddler's behavior. We have many extended breastfeeders in our pediatric practice, and I have noticed that breastfed toddlers are easier to discipline. Breastfeeding is also an exercise in baby reading, which enables a mother to more easily read her baby's cues and intervene before a discipline situation gets out of hand. Nursing is a wonderful calming tool on days when Mom needs to relax and to stave off an impending toddler tantrum.
Blame it on your doctor. I have noticed that one of the easiest ways to silence critics is the phrase: "My doctor advised me to." You can go on to explain that your doctor told you about all the recent research extolling the benefits of extended breastfeeding.
Let your child silence the critics. Once your friends and relatives see the benefits of your breastfeeding bond, your growth as a mother, and the emotional, intellectual and physical health of your child, they will serve as convincing testimonies to the value of extended breastfeeding.
And I got more info at babycentre too..
Which is good for us too...
InsyaAllah I will try my best till Adam weaning -off himself!
But maybe after 2yrs, I need to start introduce him with fm at his daycare..
So that tak delah pressure mommy nak pumping lagi..
But if stop pumping terus pun, nanti kurang plak susu...
Nanti lah..pikir balik..
Atau nak kena mintak pump baru..baru semangat balik..
