Second milestone hit and other things

Achik was born in the afternoon of 19th Ramadhan last year, so on the 19th of Ramadhan this year, which was also the 19th of August, she turned 1 according to the islamic calendar.  Of course she is officially 1 year old on the 30th of August, which is, Insya-Allah, Hari Raya :)  With some 100+ oz of EBM still in the fridge, Alhamdulillah, the second milestone of our breastfeeding journey is reached.

But things didn't go quite okay though with achik being admitted for the second time to the hospital due to bronchitis.  With barely over one month gap since the first time, it certainly wasn't something we (or any parents) would want to experience.  Alhamdulillah, this time was a lot less serious that she was given home leave on the second day and discharged on the third day.  May Allah protect her and the whole of our family from the illness of all kinds, aamiin.

Welcoming Ramadhan with 164 oz

Ramadhan kareem !!! 

Every Ramadhan, year after year, we pray that the Ramadhan be the best Ramadhan ever for us.  So does this year although it is extremetly challenging like never before to face Ramadhan single handedly.  May Allah give me the strength to make it the best Ramadhan ever, aamiin.

As part of Ramadhan preparation, I did EBM stock counting last night, which found a total of 164 oz of frozen and fresh EBM.  Barely exceeding the targeted 160 oz needed for Ramadhan, Alhamdulillah.  It is my duty now to work hard to collect a minimum of 8 oz a day.  I only managed to express 9 oz on the first day of Ramadhan and the same amount on the second day.  So very close to the bottom line of 8 oz a day and it is only the second day!  I dare not contemplating about what would possibly be the yields in the coming days.

As if understanding her mama's apprehension, achik consumed only 12 oz during the past two days.  Actually, she has been showing the pattern of 12 oz a day for the last couple of weeks.  Since I return home earlier than usual in the month of Ramadhan, the chance of saving the last bottle is higher.
