Breastfeeding Lesson : Kempen Penyusuan Susu Ibu "Bonding You and Baby"

Remember that I'd attended breastfeeding campaign last 2 weeks at AU3, Ulu Klang. After sharing all the photos taken during the event, now i would like to share what I'd gained during the event. Besides meeting with Wardina Safiyyah, the talks content really gave me inspiration to breastfeed for my 2nd baby.

# 1 Talk - Penyusuan Susu Ibu serta demonstrasi latihan Antenatal by Pn Ros Samad

During this session, Pn Ros emphasis on the benefits of breastfeeding in general. It countless as she claimed and the researcher still doing R&D about the benefits of breast milk. The ingredients inside the formula milk are not comparable to breast milk. Milk production company keep imitating the compositions of the breast milk and put in their products. However how its work within baby's body is still cannot be confirmed.

She explained all the benefits of breast milk to baby and the benefits of breastfeeding to mother which we can find in www or articles or blogs or books. She explained all those points in details and full on confident. She has long experienced in lactation counseling and you can contact her if you have breastfeeding problem.

After the talk, she demonstrate antenatal exercises. There were 8 exercises including stretching and breathing technique.

Hand Stretching

Stretching upper body

Luper aper nama exercise ni.. huhuh

Leg stretching

#2 Talk - Kepentingan Susu Ibu dan Kaitannya dari Perspecktif Psikologi by Pn Jamilah Hanum

Pn Jamilah stressed on relationship between the benefit of breastfeeding with children psychology. Among the important points she focused here were the natural bonding that created between mom and baby, cognitive development of the baby when they drink breast milk, mental health of the baby and the benefit of breastfeeding vs suckling of formula milk.

#1 Dialogue Session - Mirwana


This dialogue is about father's role and thought on breastfeeding. They are new father and both wife's breastfeed their children. One thing that they really really agreed and support about breastfeeding was - can save a lot of MONEY. Husband always counting every cent that need to spend. Calculative poker.. uhuksss.

#2 Dialogue Session - Wardina Safiyyah
Saya jatuh cinta sama Wardina Safiyyah. When she talked about breastfeeding, no questions needed as she will explain everything. Eventho, she is not lactation counsellor, yet she managed to give a good infos and talk with confident about breastfeeding. She really do research and breastfeeding is one of her passion. She is a breastfeeding mom icon to me. She managed to breastfeed her children for 2 years.

The conclusion from Wardina

Me & Wardina Safiyyah - She told me that I'm looked young. uhukss.. Bangga jap

Note : If there is Breastfeeding Awareness among the mummies - Practice would be much easier - Breastfeeding would be Malaysian Culture
