lepas jer aku baca comment from Nader Rara, aku terus google..

ni hasil godekan aku di google.. menemukan info pasal reverse cycling di Kellymom.com


What is 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.
Tips for handling reverse cycling


General coping tips for interrupted sleep:


•Sleep late or go to bed early when possible. When you're at home with baby, nap when your baby naps.


Keep baby as close as possible during the night to maximize sleep for everyone. Some options are to have baby in bed with you, in a bed adjoining your bed, or in a bed in the same room.
 •More tips:
◦Maximizing sleep when baby nurses frequently
◦If you need a nap and your toddler doesn't
◦Nighttime and Sleep Resources
If your newborn has days and nights mixed up:
•During the day, keep the lights on and go on with your normal daytime activities -- don't keep things dark and quiet where baby is sleeping. Play with and talk to baby during waking times. Wake baby to nurse every 2-3 hours.


•During baby's night wakings, keep everything calm, quiet, and dark (if you need a light to breastfeed, try using a smaller light like a nightlight or closet light). At some point you may want to begin a bedtime routine (such as bath, story, breastfeeding) to signal that nighttime has begun.
 When mom is busy or distracted:
•Consider using a sling or other baby carrier so that baby can be with you and breastfeed while you go about your day.


•Be aware of baby's typical breastfeeding routine, and remember to watch for baby's cues on busy days -- this is easiest when baby is close by.


•Be aware that after a really busy day (we all have them!), your child may need some one-on-one time with mom to breastfeed and reconnect.
•Tips for juggling a newborn and toddler


If your baby is distractible, see The Distractible Baby for tips. Do babies under 12 months self-wean? has additional tips for distractible older babies.


If baby is reverse cycling and taking very little milk when mom is away at work:<-- aku bold and redkan text ni sbb mmg ada terkena atas batang hidung aku... ngan aku
Be patient. Try not to stress about it. Consider it a compliment - baby prefers you! <- ooh rupa2nya aku kena sabar...
 •Use small amounts of expressed milk per bottle so there is less waste. <- i did it sekarang nih....
•If you're worrying that baby can't go that long without more milk, keep in mind that some babies sleep through the night for 8 hours or so without mom needing to worry that baby is not eating during that time period. Keep an eye on wet diapers and weight gain to assure yourself that baby is getting enough milk. <- aku kena start tgk ni
•Ensure that baby has ample chance to nurse when you're together. <- mmg buat gini pon slalu.. sbb kesian kat dia tak minum siang hari
•If you prefer to pump less milk while you're away from baby, you may choose to encourage baby to reverse cycle. <- alamak..!! adakah semuanya berpunca dari aku?aku kdg2 pam 2 kali jer kat opis.. kadg2 sekali..

Setiap kali aku balik keje, dan bagi salam (either masa aku baru nak amik hakimi or bila dah dia balik ngan papa), dia terus pandang aku, dan merangkak meluru dengan laju macam peluru nak gi kat aku.. mmg perasaan yang sgt2 tak tergambar.. gembira bila disambut pulang dari keje dengan wajah senyuman anak.. Terdetik di hati ku..."Ya Allah, sungguh besar dan sungguh indah "anugerah" yang Allah bagi kat aku..." Syukron Jazilan....!!!...

Izni Aisy Hakimi.. how precious you are to me.. I love you darling intan payung sayang mama...
