Selamat Menyambut Ramadhan, All..
Aisyah is feeling a little poorly today. She has the flu. Her nose is runny and she feels a bit warm. Don't worry though, we've been to the clinic and she has been prescribed with some medicine. But she still manages to smile ever so often, though.
I should count my blessings coz Aisyah's attitude towards being sick is more like, 'I'm sick, so I'll sleep', rather than, 'I'm sick, so I'll cry and make my parents' life a living hell'. And she takes her medicines well, even I was tempted to have a sip of her medicine syrup just to know what they taste like. Serious! So for that, a mighty Alhamdulillah is due...
On the breastfeeding front, Alhamdulillah, not much of a problem on the 1st day of Ramadhan. Maybe it's bcoz I have been fasting (Qadha) one week straight last week. In fact, I did some spring cleaning from a little after Zohor straight until past Asar non-stop (Aisyah was asleep the entire time!). Supply has been almost the same, but I've got to make time to pump more. With Aisyah sick, I'm not too keen on double pumping with her whilst she breastfeeds directly. I'd rather focus just on her coz she's a bit fussy and not be distracted with a pump on the other breast. And then I got too lazy to find a time to exclusively breastpump. Gotta kick this nasty habit away to prevent any decrease in my milk supply, especially during Ramadhan :)
Okay. That's it for now. Hope everyone has safely made it through the 1st Day of Ramadhan. 29 more to go. Semoga kita berlumba2 mempertingkatkan amalan kita pada bulan yg mulia ini. Btw, Aisyah who is normally on me 24/7 has sorta understood that Ramadhan is a special month that comes once a year, so she has cut me some slack and allows me to perform my religious duty besides her mattress without much problem (note that she is on her mattress, not whining to be picked up, yay!).. Alhamdulillah ...
Aisyah teman Ibu solat teraweh
Please Pray that Aisyah gets well soon, okay?
