Pagi ni aku anta baby mcm biasa ke taska. Lps setel downkan aper yg patut, aku & hby pun babai2 kt bb farysh & qais, pastuh trus cargas ke pintu taska, nk rushing la ni sbb nk gerak naik kete sbb ujan. Elok aku smpai kt pintu nk kuar, sorang dr bbsitter tu keloi a.k.a panggil aku. Pastuh dia sound aku..
 
Korang nk tau aper yg dia ckp? Dia ckp ''mak, anak ni dh xmo minum susu ibu dah. Tukar la susu tepung''. Berderau darah akuuu!!!!! X sngka ada org selain dr aku propose sumting yg mcm tu kt aku plak tu.. Ader ke patut! Patut ke??? Ank aku elok je terhegeh2 nk nenen aku.. Daily supply pun masih mantop tp suka suki je dia nk ckp centuh.
 
Then, aku ckp ''eh, mana ader kak. Okey je. Xper, biar je dia kurang minum. Sehari dua je tu, nanti2 dia ok la balik''...
 
Pastuh dia tanye lg ''dh baper umo? Dh besar kan.. Bleh la tu mak''.
 
Aiiiiii.. Dlm atie aku hanye tuhan yg tau. Then aku ckp la ''xper kak, kalo siang dia minum sket, nanti mlm dia akn balas dendam kt saya. Dia neeeeenennn je! So, akk x pyh bimbang la. Lgpun dia x pernah lg minum susu tepung & saya nk susukan dia sampai umo setahun''. Aku tgk bb farysh tgh pandang aku then aku ckp kt bb farysh "kan syg???".. ngeee...
 
Kelat terussss muka akk tuh, pastuh aku bg salam & terus blahh!
 
Masuk lam kete aku bebel2 kt hby aku.. Siap kuar la sumer2 istilah yg hanya breastfeeding momma je yg akn phm. Aku tau hby aku xleh phm tp ader aku kesah, aku hamburkan je sumer... emo jap aku.. Suppose aku citerkan kt bbsitter taska tu, tp aku xder cukup mase sbb aku kene rushing kejar punch card. Pepagi cenih mmg muke Mgr HR je yg aku nmpk. Huhuhu...
 
Okey, now aku nk kasi a short briefing on Feeding Pattern For a Breastfed Bby. Hrp dpt menjadi info berguna utk semua. Info2 nih aku cedok dr KellyMom.com dan sebab tuh ianya dlm English. twinkkk! ;-)
 
1. REVERSE CYCLING
 
Reverse cycling is when baby nurses frequently at night and less frequently during the day.
 
Why do some babies reverse cycle?
Newborns may reverse cycle in the early days or weeks simply because they have their days and nights mixed up.
 
Distractible (and/or very active) babies or toddlers may nurse more at night to make up for missed or shortened nursing sessions during the day.
 
If mom is very distracted or busy during the day, baby may nurse more at night to make up for missed or shortened nursing sessions, or simply to get more uninterrupted time with mom.

If mom is away from baby during the day, baby may take just enough milk (by bottle or cup) to "take the edge off" his hunger, then wait for mom to return to get the bulk of his calories. Baby will typically nurse more often and/or longer than usual once mom returns. Some mothers encourage reverse cycling so they won't need to pump as much milk. Reverse cycling is common for breastfed babies who are away from mom part of the day, especially those just starting out with the bottle.

2. GROWTH SPURTS
 
Most babies go through several growth spurts (also called frequency days) during the first 12 months. During a growth spurt, breastfed babies nurse more often than usual (sometimes as often as every hour) and often act fussier than usual.
 
The increase in baby's milk intake during growth spurts is temporary. In exclusively breastfed babies, milk intake increases quickly during the first few weeks of life, then stays about the same between one and six months. As solids are gradually introduced after six months, baby's milk intake will gradually decrease.
 
Physical growth is not the only reason that babies may have a temporary need for increased nursing. Babies often exhibit the same type of behavior (increased nursing with or without increased fussiness) when they are working on developmental advances such as rolling over, crawling, walking or talking. Mom's milk is for growing the brain as well as the body!
 
When do babies have growth spurts?
Common times for growth spurts are during the first few days at home and around 7-10 days, 2-3 weeks, 4-6 weeks, 3 months, 4 months, 6 months and 9 months (more or less). Babies don't read calendars, however, so your baby may do things differently.
 
Growth spurts don't stop after the first year - most moms notice growth spurts every few months during the toddler years and periodically thereafter on through the teenage years.
 
How long do growth spurts last?
Growth spurts usually last 2-3 days, but sometimes last a week or so.
 
What is the best way to handle a growth spurt?
Follow your child's lead. Baby will automatically get more milk by nursing more frequently, and your milk supply will increase due to the increased nursing. It is not necessary (or advised) to supplement your baby with formula or expressed milk during a growth spurt. Supplementing (and/or scheduling feeds) interferes with the natural supply and demand of milk production and will prevent your body from getting the message to make more milk during the growth spurt.
 
Some nursing moms feel more hungry or thirsty when baby is going through a growth spurt. Listen to your body -- you may need to eat or drink more during the time that baby is nursing more often.
 
3. CLUSTER FEEDING
 
Cluster feeding, also called bunch feeding, is when babies space feeding closer together at certain times of the day and go longer between feedings at other times. This is very common, and often occurs in the evenings. It's often -but not always- followed by a longer sleep period than usual: baby may be "tanking up" before a long sleep. For example, your baby may nurse every hour (or even constantly) between 6 and 10 PM, then have a longish stretch of sleep at night - baby may even sleep all night.
