weaning off

For the past 3 months I have tried to wean off sofea from breastfeeding, which starts when sofea is 1 year and 10 months. I know most mommies out there would say, why not wait until 2 years? 

well i have my own reasons:
1- sofea rejects bottle/sippy, whether I am around her or when I am not around her, whether it is my milk or other type of milk. so I feel that I need to teach her to drink my ebm or any other milk from bottle/sippy, so that when in case of emergency, she still can depends on other type of milk

2- that time I planned to send her to half day playschool, but it is kinda hard if she doesn't want to drink milk at school, and she was also a picky eater so that worries me much. 

so I guess weaning off slowly is the only way to get her to learn to drink milk... but fussy sofea still cries for my milk whenever I am around her -_-"

during the wean off period, I tried several 'methods' suggested by other mommies, e.g - plaster, minyak cap kapak, colgate, coffee, conteng, mimijumi bottle, all sorts of bottle, cute sippy cups.. but sadly these kind of 'methods' only work for a few hours.. some doesn't work at all.. and the next thing I know sofea will be crying and screaming very loudly especially at 2 A.M asking for 'nenen' -_-"

so, how do I get her to completely wean off? well since I had an emergency surgery last week and had to be warded, so I figured that it was a good time to wean her off completely. As I returned home from hospital, she still asked for 'nenen' during naptime, but I told her that I am in pain.. and alhamdulillah she understands and continue to sleep without her milk =)

and last night, I made formula milk inside her mimijumi bottle and she drank around 1 oz and dozed off straight until this morning!! finally at 2 years 1 month, sofea is completely weaned off my milk, alhamdulillah ^_^

Ectopic Pregnancy

Last Thursday i was diagnosed with ectopic pregnancy. I was having a diarrhea and bad stomach cramp earlier in the morning and went to the clinic to get some medications and MC. But then when the doctor scanned my tummy (ultrasound) she found out that there is no baby inside my uterus, but it was somewhere outside the uterus.

Ectopic pregnancy occurs when an embryo implants somewhere other than the uterus, such as in one of the fallopian tubes.

Suddenly the doctor sort of panicked and called an ambulance, and i was taken to the nearest hospital emergency department. Later in the evening i was pushed to the operation theater, drugged by the anesthetic and the surgeon performed 'laparoscopy' to remove the embryo from the tube. It all happens so quickly but i am thankful that my husband is there when i need him the most :")

When I was in the OT, all i could do was recite Doa Nabi Yunus & selawat and kept repeating until i fell dozed off. I did not felt anything during the whole surgery process, which is good because if i did feel anything, i think it would scare the heck out of me! The surgery took around 3 hours and when i woke up, i was still very sleepy and continue to sleep.

I am quite sad that i loss my 7 weeks baby, but things always happens for a reason. Today is 5 days post surgery and i am still recovering. Praying for a speedy recovery!


Like a rainbow after the rain, there's always a good thing after the pain InsyaAllah.
