Hubby's responsibility for breastfeeding wife

Dr. Sumayy forward this email to me..

Satu perkongsian yang menarik dr Prof Dr Muhaya:

"Saya berkesempatan utk bertemu dgn ibu kepada seorang ilmuwan agama (ustaz) yang tersohor pada masa kini. Melihatkan kpd kebolehan anaknya dalam menyampaikan dakwah, maka saya bertanya kepada ibunya, apakah rahsia beliau dalam mendidik si anak? Jawab si ibu, sewaktu si anak (ustaz) dilahirkan, beliau telah mengambil keputusan utk berhenti kerja bagi menumpukan sepenuh perhatian beliau utk menyusukan anaknya selama genap 2 tahun. Selain itu, pada setiap malam, apabila mereka suami isteri dikejutkan si anak utk menyusu, suami beliau akan turut sama bangun. Suaminya akan menyediakan susu kepadanya utk minum sambil beliau menyusukan anaknya itu. Suaminya tak benarkan beliau menyusu sambil baring. Sebaliknya, suaminya akan menyediakan belakang badannya utk beliau bersandar menyusukan anak sambil duduk dan memastikan keselesaan semasa menyusu. Bayangkan bagaimana emosi si isteri apabli setiap malam dilayan sebegitu oleh si suami"

SUBHANALLAH.... indahnya alam rumah tangga jika bersandarkan amanah dan kasih sayang kerana Allah. Tak mustahil jika mereka dapat melahirkan generasi yang baik akhlaknya. Persoalannya, siapakah si anak yang dimaksudkan???



Beliau adalah USTAZ DON DANIYAL DON BIYAJID;

Honestly, breastfeeding was not an easy task. Since breastmilk is so easy to digest, sometimes (make it most of the time) your baby might wake up almost every hour to nurse, esp in hot weather like these couple of weeks.

Eventhough you breastfed her while lying down, who said you did not have backaches once you woke up? I woke up sleepy, tired and sore almost every day, but all gone once I looked at how contented Spiderbaby was.

Breastfeeding needs 2 things:

1) Determination - It's just how much you want it.

2) Support - Especially from your husband to make your hard work feels appreciated. Love might not wake up every single time I breastfeed Spiderbaby like Ustaz Don's father. Fair enough, I am surely nothing like Ustaz Don's mother.

When Khaira was about 4 months old, I discovered that eating chocolate could increase my milk supply. I started to grow a liking towards Oreo and chocolate milk. (Then complained berat badan tak turun ;p) So, it was really really sweet to have Love occasionally bought them for me and even sometimes out of surprise left it on my dressing table.

Today, when I was about to go to work, I found something in my car that made me feel appreciated already.. :)
