Belanja Baju Hamil di Lemari Sendiri

Waktu saya hamil, rasanya malas sekali beli baju hamil.  Selain karena baju hamil kebanyakan kurang menarik modelnya, harganya juga mahal. Sayang kan kalau beli hanya untuk dipakai selama beberapa bulan saja. Jadi waktu hamil anak kedua, saya melewatkan sembilan bulan itu tanpa membeli satu baju hamilpun, kecuali untuk 1 celana jeans :) Solusinya? Gampang!.  Saya…

Bumwear for Little Bums

Walaupun terlambat, saya senang sekali ‘menemukan’ Bumwear pada saat Aluf berusia 7 bulan. Saya tadinya tidak ‘ngeh’ bahwa ada pilihan yang lebih baik dibandingkan disposable diapers. Ketika lagi ngobrol-ngobrol di forum, saya baru sadar bahwa sebetulnya lebih bagus kalo bayi menggunakan cloth diapers/popok kain karena: Tidak akan menimbulkan alergi atau ruam popok Lapisan Anti air…

Exclusive Breastfeeding = 100% Breast Milk?

Well yeah, that’s the general idea. And that was my previous thought too. But I did not put it as a big deal to my breastfeeding job (job? yes it is a job. I will mention about this in the next post). It doesn’t affect my motivation to keep breastfeeding although two of my babies…

Dongeng Langit

“Nama ibu siapa nak?” “upa..” (Artinya lupa) Doeeengggg… Semenjak anak saya sekitar 11 bulan (lupa tepatnya) dia udah jadi beo. Ngoceh….melulu kerjaannya! (Plus makaaaaannnn…mulu). Kalimat pertamanya selain baba, bu, adalah ‘embang’ yang artinya kembang dan ‘owa’ yang artinya bola. Semakin kemari, makin banyak pula perbendaharaan kata yang dia miliki. Walau kadang melenceng dari kata yang…

Suddenly Mama

So there we were.. newlyweds at their 1st year. Having a ball. Traveling plans lies ahead in our heads, thinking of places to go and those things-to-do-before-you-hit-30-sort-of-things has been nicely crafted on our nifty minds. Yeah, of course those plans exist, until one day… The day when Armin Van Bureen’s arse shakes Jakarta the day…

Persalinan Spontan vs Operasi Caesar

Dari tiga kehamilan, saya mengalami sekali persalinan normal dan dua kali sesar. Satu sesar (hampir spontan), satu lagi sesar elektif (terencana) yang bisa milih tanggal :D Beda sesar spontan dan elektif, kalo sesar elektif: dimungkinkan untuk memilih tanggal ada kesempatan tes lab pre-sesar (darah dan urine), jadi memperkecil kesalahan pada dosis obat dan anestesi. Sesar…
