2. Daily Diet
Everyday I make sure that I take 6 meals. Breakfast @ 8-9, snack @ 10-11, lunch @ 12-1, snack lagi @ 3-4, dinner @ 6-7 and snack lagi sekali @ 9-10. The last snack tu biasanya I drank milo jek.
I normally took roti for breakfast. Fruits/biscuits with hot milo for snacks. Lunch/dinner meals were cooked according to these recipe bo.oks. Nasi putih aku sedapkan by tabur-ing grounded black pepper and bawang goreng ala PCMC. Sedap jugak. Perut pun kenyang. You can view my pantang food here.
On top of the pantang food, I also add those foods that can increase milk supply i.e. kurma, pegaga, barli etc. I avoid anything berlemak/fried and everything that buku/orang kata takleh makan. I also drink a lot of water which aku letak dalam water bottle for easy access. Kalo tak, sure asik terlupa.
I had a great confinement lady from Puchong. Hasil recommendation by a blogger friend. Kebetulan pula, she’s a makcik to a colleague of mine.
Had her on the 7th, 8th and 9th day after delivery. And continued on the week after for another 3 days. In total, 6 days over the period of 2 weeks. I tried to book her for the weeks after but to no success. She had to give priority to others. Those who just delivered that is. Betul jugak. Okay lah for me, cos aku pun dah segar bugar macam orang lain.
The 1st day she came, she brought all sorts of daun and ingredients for my mandi herba and bertangas. Good thing I have a maid now. So every morning, she helped me boiled the daun in a pot of water for me to mandi herba. Lepas mandi, she prepared another pot for me to bertangas. All these were done before the confinement lady came @ 11am. When she came, we continued with tungku, urut and berbengkung.
Best-nya confinement lady ni, you’ll feel like princess after the whole massage and all. Dah pakai bengkung sure susah nak tunduk kan, no worries; she’ll put on the clothes and socks for you. After 2 weeks with her, I felt so pampered. Nak angkat jari buat kerja rumah pun malas. Haha! And she definitely has a lot to share. From past stories to petua-petua berguna.
I used 3 types of bengkung throughout the first 3 weeks. 1 dapat free with the set bersalin Nona Roguy, another I bought from the confinement lady, and the last one is the barut baby style yang ikat byk2 kat depan tu.
Masuk 4th week, all bengkung felt loose. So I decided to upgrade to Triumph corset and girdle. Ketat sikit rasa, and hassle free. Plus, this corset is the one yang go underbust tu. So, u can still wear nursing bra with it. Senang kan.
On top of the above, I also bought the FabulousMom strap on binder tu. But either aku x reti pakai ke apa, but it seems like even size L pun is a little bit too tight for me.
All in all, okay lah pantang regime aku kan. Like I said before, walaupun tak sempurna, aku puas hati lah dengan usaha-usaha yang aku dah buat. Maid pun cakap kaki aku dah kecik. Hubby cakap perut aku lagi kempis dari before pregnant. A friend who met me a week after delivery, then met me again yesterday pun kata aku nampak kurus. Tak happy ko?
Aku happy. Sekian.
