Hanafi’s Breastfeeding Journey

Mother’s Name : Hanizawati Jamaludin a.k.a Hanz πŸ˜› .
(don’t any Chit-chatters dare to call me other name than Hanz, yah!Wah, me sounds so garang, he,he…)

Child’s Name : Hanafi bin Hasrat

Child’s D.O.B :
18th February, 2004

Photo Location : Blessedmum Nursing Wear Advertisement-Photo Shoot, Sunway Resort, KL (November 2004).

The uniqueness of this photo was that I was breastfeeding lil Hanafi at that time despite it was my turn for photo shoot. My task was to model 3 pieces of Nursing Wear and tenderly remembered, about the moment I was supposed to get ready to start posing around & that moment Hanafi had chosen claiming his ‘fix’. I was anxious & unable to decide & it was coaxing & gentle assurance from Angeline of Blessedmum to just let it out naturally. Akward at first because it was truly my ever first experience having the limelight focussing on me & was worried simultaneously whether I have appeared discreetly or not. There was many people inside the tiny hotel room especially another two Nursing Moms models, Makeup Artist & hubbies hovering. I was blushing but I guess Professional Photographer were very good in their job and was able to capture the moment plus managed concealing akward me.

So the photo become like this advertisement appeared in several Parenting Magazine like Pa & Ma, Mother & Baby and so forth…

Breastfeed Hanafi’s Sweet Memory : At first, I managed to exclusive breastfeed for 3 months since the day of his borned but because of my ignorances and lack of support, I started to mix-feeding though I pumped diligently at work. It turned out that my mistake was that I should use be
tter pump, corrected myself on the proper way of hand expressing, nutrition, and many, many more.

My turning point was after reading two stories that appeared in MyMomsBest Forum about how they travelled extensively & frequent separation from their child did not dampen their spirit to keep on going breastfeed exclusively. I was ashamed of myself so determination took over, loaded myself with information & seeked assistance from Lactation Consultant cum Paeditrician. After three months of mixed feeding, exactly when Hanafi turned 7 months old, I managed to UPGRADE from MIXED FEEDING to FULLY BREASTFEED for 2 and Half years. Never looked back or resort to formula milk since then.

Breastfeed Hanafi’s Bitter Memory : Hanafi was unable to properly latch on and because he was having difficulty prior on his deliverance, the NOT BREASTFEEDING FRIENDLY Hospital fed him formula. Only the next morning, he was nursing to me and the following days I had bad engorged and Hanafi was having fit. I thought I’m going to fail my breastfeeding mission but I kept my head and yes, it was worthy in the end.

To read in detail about my Breastfeeding Journey with Hanafi, I have shared it previously in this Chatterbox of mine. Just click this and that.

Alright, back to the original mission. This chat is supposed to accomplish my entry on the Breastfeeding Contest hosted by Nurul Dhia.

Participant are only allowed to send one photo and one entry but after rechecking with Nurul Dhia, I’m posting one more story. Not easy being hard-core bf Moms of two boys & I need to be fair & square to both of them. Win lose, is part of the parcel but what I wanted to share actually is hope that my breastfeeding journey could be any assistance to other nursing moms or soon to be nursing moms.Better still some inspiration? Ok, now Hambali’s breastfeeding story..


Hambali’s Breastfeeding Journey

Child’s name : Hambali bin Hasrat

Child’s D.O.B. : 12th June, 2008

Photo Location : Waiting Room, Salam Medical Centre, Shah Alam, Selangor (1st week of July, 09)

I descibed this moment as nursing for comfort. The best remedy to ease the pain after IV procedure & from the disease itself is Mama’s Nen Nen. He was crying painfully & it quiten him once he was latching on.

During the hospital stay also, Hambali was under fed, refused to be feed by the Hospital’s Cafe which was the baby porridge that I’ve ordered & no explanation needed for this. He just missed his Mama’s home-cooked porridge. But his Mama was unable to fulfill this as she was accompanying him. So what’s keep him going to survive? Mama’s Precious Drop!

Breastfeed’s Hambali’s Sweet Memory : The first time Hambali tugged on my breast, he does’nt need any coaxing or lesson at all. Ngap! It was like he’s been nursing for weeks & expertly knows how. Both hubby & me was totally surprised because for a first timer, Hambali done a great job in it! We could hear the swallowing and we were overjoyed because my milk (the colostrum too) flowed abundance!

Breastfeed Hambali’s Bitter Memory : Spiteful remark received from family-related on whether my ‘Milk’ has something to ‘do’ with Hambali’s previous Urinary Tract Infection. Alhamdulillah. It was over and at 13 months, Hambali still nursing well!
