Bridezilla's First Aid Kit

Birth Story - Noah Iskandar Bin Muhammad Faiz

Alhamdulillah.. All well ends well!!

We finally bring our baby boy, Noah home! After a week in the hospital, we are getting home sick, and it is such a relieved to be at home-At last!

As soon as we announce that we expecting a baby, well-meaning folk start giving us advice about all sorts of thing. From what to eat in pregnancy, how we should decide on a name for our future offspring to confinement do’s and don’ts.  We appreciate all the advice given – thank you. 

So here is our story, 


I should admit to the hospital that day but I am just too lazy to pack my bag. It’s already 5pm and we are still at home. Until the nurse from doctor Seri office called to check if we are coming, then only we make our move!. 

Arriving at 7pm, our suite is not ready yet. The housekeepers are busy preparing the towel, toiletries, and the bed sheet.  Once they are done, it’s disappointed to find that there is no pillow case for the pillows, no remote control for both TV, and there is no water plug for the bath tub. They tried to find the pillow case- there was none until the next day and they couldn’t find the water plug until the day we discharged!

Other than that, the suite is great. It is big enough for all of us. There is a bedroom with the bathroom for Emak and Sara, and hubby can have the living room all for himself and my room of course with a huge bathroom. Like it? No... I love it! *Thank you sayang- you know this means a lot to me!*


Around 10am, the godmothers are already here. Mun bring her Polaroid camera and we took a lot of pictures. It was fun; we even considered to buy our own Polaroid camera. Mun and Mir entertained Sara while my hubs and I prepared to go in operation theatre. 

11:40am: We are already in OT. I was given the epidural. My husband look calmed and relaxes with this whole procedure- I guess he already know what to expect. We heard Noah cried at 12.40 pm.. Doc Seri said to me ‘you make a wise decision mummy!! Your little hero is pretty big here’.. He is 3.61kg, have my eyes and his papa nose. He is a very loud baby! Well..He is my dragon baby boy after all.


2pm: I’m already in my bed. The nurse brings Noah to me for breastfeeding. He was an excellent nurser. He never had any trouble latching on, and it was wonderful for both of us.

We always worried on how Arisara’s reacted and how is her acceptance towards her baby brother. I guess she is well prepared for this. We don’t see any sibling rivalry symptom and she loves Noah very much. She sometimes calls him baby, adik, or Noah. She cried when Noah was taken to the nursery and always asked us to take her to nursery to see Noah. She’s such an angel!


When you have your baby, and if you are exclusively breastfeeding, your doctor will probably warn you about newborn jaundice. We can see Noah have a yellowish tint to his skin. The doctor advises us to stay so they can monitor him. His bilirubin test is 200 mmol/L and increase to 205 mmol/L on the next day.  We need to put him under the bili lights and on a bili blanket. 

Since he was on the lights, I wouldn’t be able to nurse him the entire time. Thank god I bring my breast pump so I can give the expressed breast milk to Noah. Our room is quite far from the nursery, so I only went there about twice a day to breast feeding Noah.

On the same day, the surgeon, Doc Faizal comes to see us to discuss about Noah circumcision. He explained to us on the procedure, and the plus side of infant circumcisions. After we agreed, he ran the procedure on the same day at 6pm. We are not allowed to see on how the procedure is done.

Noah seems fine when we go to the nursery to check on him 2 hours later. It is a relieved that the nurses are there to take care of him. They are the experts on newborn circumcision care. They assured us that everything is okay and not to worry too much.


Noah has his BCG vaccination that day; he is a strong boy isn’t he? To be on the lights, get circumcised and now BCG, I just think it is too much for 6 days baby but he prove to us he is the hero of the family. He really makes us proud. Noah’s paed, Doc Sharmilla told us Noah’s bili level dropped to 160 and we can finally go home! Yeay!!

We are getting home sick and we can’t wait to bring Noah home to start living as a family of 4! 

Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah for all your blessings Ya Allah.

Home Sweet Home - Mia Casa!


The clock is ticking fast now, today is going to be the last day at home. All of us will temporarily move in to PCMC suite starting tomorrow. I don’t know why but I don’t feel like going. I hope I can stay home. I hope I can have Noah in my tummy longer. I love being pregnant and I am sure I am going to miss these moments. I thought of stopping at 2, but now seriously, I am not sure. Haha.. Care for another one Sayang? Okay, let’s stop talking nonsense.

Having a child is not easy, but undeniably they bring joy to the parent. At the moment I know we can’t afford to have more than 2 children. We can’t really afford in terms of financial, time and attention. In my opinion, if you can’t afford one, don’t try to have one. I can’t bear to read about the child abuse, or child decease due to negligence and missing child (god-knows-where and who took them). As we want the best for our kids, we need to delved deep inside our pocket for their insurance (education insurance, life insurance, PA insurance- you name it!), our insurance (just in case!), all type of classes and activities, and most importantly their education.  We are hoping to send them to private instead of general school, but it is still under discussion and so many things to take into consideration. 

Okay Nurul, let’s live in presence, Arisara is not even 2! Back to my story..

Arisara's Room


Arisara’s room is finally done! Yeay *clapclap* and she love it very much *you-are-most-welcome-Sara*. The room was painted in pink by Papa, and I decorated the room with colorful toys, colorful canopy for her kitchen *my favorite item!*, colorful flags (from her birthday decoration), and her 1st birthday dress on her table. I want to put her picture in the wall – lots of pictures! But I guess that have to wait. Seriously we are running out of time.

 Noah's Room


For little Noah, there is not much to do for the baby room. This is actually used to be Sara’s room, it is painted in green (Thank God kan?!) So we don’t need to re-paint the room. I need to unpack the sterilizer, bottle warmer, and all the breast feeding kit. The breast feeding routine will start its cycle soon. Lovely!.  I hope my milk supply is enough as I wish I could give exclusive breastfeeding for lil Noah at least for his first six month (yeap, just like I did for Sara).  To those who don’t know, exclusive breastfeeding means only breast milk, no water or no formula during that first 6 months. Some have a misconception when they said they breastfeed exclusively for this long, and this long. You must know that if you give the formula or solids to your baby during that long and that long, then you are no longer breastfeed exclusively to your baby, you are just breastfeeding your baby. There are off course a lot of benefits that make most mothers opt to exclusively breast feed their babies, I am sure you can google more on this.


Too busy with the kids’ room, I only manage to get myself a table lamp for my dressing table cum mini pamabearlilangel office. Since we are living in the small apartment, and we have a very small master bedroom, so you can see where my dressing table is. Next to gigantic wardrobe, it blocks the light to this area, and I will have to update my blog, send email quotations, write a receipt, and also facebooking in the dark. Yes, I love this lamp very much, and it also adds a romantic mood to the room. I am sure Papa loves it too.. hikhik (this is gelak gatal).

My Herbal Garden

Finally, my favorite place in this house, is my mini herbal garden!. I can sit here for hours with my favorite book and Sara. I wonder what would happen to them if I am not around this few days. Now is raining season right? Okay pokok, you are on your own now.. You better pray for the rain.. See you in the next few days, and I hope I can see you alive (and preferably with ripe tomatoes). 

Okay now, I guess you will not hear from me in these few days. To those who wish to rent or ask about our services- to rent the trays or accessories, feel free to drop us a message. No worries, my husband will reply to your quotations asap. 

Wish me all the best k,
