Confinement Month – 28 days To Be Exact

Confinement period. Is it 1 month, 90 days, 30 days or 28 days?

Different people tells me different things about confinement and usually it is supposed to be one month and for some approximately 90 days. However, after I had engaged my confinement lady, I realized that they will only work for exactly 28 days which I was like…. “WHAAAT???”

Mind you they are definitely not cheap and so-called one month becomes 28 days. So I asked “WHY?” and the answer I got was that they will use the shortest month in the calendar – which will be their so-called one month! Continue reading “Confinement Month – 28 days To Be Exact”

My Breastfeeding Journey Started in Pantai Hospital KL

Breastfeeding can be easy to some and not so easy for others

For me, I am one of the lucky ones because Arissa was incredible from the very beginning. After the procedure, I was still in the recovery room for almost 1.5hours (mind you that it is no fun at all – I was freezing and trembling and couldn’t feel my legs) and once I was back in the ward, the nurse brought Arissa to me for the first time for skin-to-skin contact. The nurse told me 10 minutes for skin-to-skin contact and later she will come in again to position Arissa for breastfeeding.

The moment I placed Arissa on my shoulder, she immediately found her way to my breast and the next thing I know, she already started sucking my nipple and looking for milk!!

Giving Birth at Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur

So 19th July 2016, we both checked in to Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur as consulted by our gynae, Dr Kamaljit from Bangsar Women’s Specialist. Her advice were very clear, “check-in early so that you will be able to get the single room as they are limited and first-come-first-served basis!”

We did as we were told and arrived around 10am, went to the check-in counter and true enough they didn’t have anymore single rooms and we were put on waiting list. (Thank god for Dr Kamaljit who had informed the nurses the day before to put us on the waiting list, so we were the top 3 on the list!) While waiting for the single room, we took some photos: Continue reading “Giving Birth at Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur”
