wondering...

Adam muntah2 lately dgn byk nye after I introduced egg yolk into his porridge. Adelah dlm 6 kali muntah sampai kosong perut. Terus we brought to clinic. The doctor advised me jgn kasi mkn homemade rice porridge lagi, beli yg paket2 instant tu and ask Adam’s teacher to prepare at the nursery.

I’m feeling soo confused. All this time I thought homemade food is best for Adam, so that’s why even dlm kesibukan dan tak sempat I try to make homemade food for him. I read up on all the age appropriate foods and vary his menus so that he gets wholesome nutritious food. I refused to beli commercial baby food, until the doctor (the same one!) advised me to give Adam baby biscuits as snacks. But now homemade food made my baby sick…..should I keep on cooking for him, or should I just buy, like the doctor advised?

Lagi satu yg made me a little confused…BM is good for baby’s health, and yet bila my baby selalu kene selsema, demam etc….what does that mean eh? I know there’s a good explanation for this somewhere, but I don’t know where. Sometimes I start to doubt, is my breastmilk not good enough ke? Hmmm….silly wondering….(but I’d like to state here that NOT in any way does this mean that I doubt the goodness of breastfeeding ok. You all know I’m a strong supporter) but if any of you know the explanation to this..pls let me know…

Hmm…having a bad mom day, I guess…I wish I can do the absolute best for Adam….don’t want him to miss out on anything…

aida,
is adam still vomiting even without the egg yolk? kalo tak, i think mcm ok jer if you want to continue preparing porridge for him. to me, baby food we have to experiment...

as for me, baby selsema/demam is normal.not necessarily kita breastfeed baby kita takkan sakit langsung. cuma kalo my kids tak sehat (like demam/selsema/batuk) i akan monitor berapa hari & biasanya tak lama...

just my 2 cents :)

auni said...

kesiannya..tak buleh bagi my 2 cents sebab takde baby lagi.even maried pun belum!hehe..
anyway cheer up mommy adam.ke dia tak bleh terima egg yolk?

along said...

baby yg tak sakit tu bukan baby tp robot. huhu.

just take like this, kalo on BM pun dia salu demam/selsema... how if with no BM? it could be worse!

BM is not a tonic utk mengelakkan penyakit...

neway i have a cousin who's not been BF. dia salu demam & teruk2 demamnya sampai masuk hospital. now he's just 2YO. dr kata dia xde antibodi so bodynye has to demam2 to develop antibodi... sian kan.

tuty said...

ermmm baby demam2 selsema tu biasa la.. my mom kata baby mmg nnt demam sbb nak besar.. maybe ada pape yg berubah pada dia tp kita tak tau. lagipun adam duduk kat nursry kan, so chances nak demam mmg lagi besar. biasa la tu.. kita yg besar ni pun duk sebelah org demam pun boleh jangkit.. apa lagi yg cenonet tu kan.

i agree with mrs noba, try to exclude egg yolk. i myself prepare homemade porridge for my baby. lagiii malas tau.. bukan masak hari2.. 3 hari sekali. masuk dlm 3 bekas. 1 dlm fridge, 2 dlm freezer. tiap2 mlm defrost satu satu. so far my adam ok je.

walaupun dia doktor, tak selalunya dia betul. to me dah jadi mak ni, we had to follow our motherly instinct. mom knows best! kalau i ikut ckp paed dulu, i dah stop bf dah!

ummi sa'eed said...

one more thing to consider is that u are sending your baby to a nursery. mmg lah lagi senang adam nak catch any viruses floating around. but it's ok, insyaAllah it'll build his immunity. i dunno how teruk is it if adam demam/selesema...but one thing that we practice is to avoid medicine for sa'eed as long as possible. kalau selesema, setakat letak kunyit kat hidung utk legakan the nostrils. and my nenek's rule of thumb...kalau demam tak baik after 3 days baru jumpe dr.

on the food, maybe adam is not ready for egg yolk kot. like what others have said, try eliminating it and see what happens.

umi nadhrah said...

my mom pun ade cakap.. baby kalu growing up mmg akan demam.. kadang tu before boleh meniarap pun demam, before boleh merangkak akan demam, before tumbuh gigi pun demam (nadhrah demam when her tooth bud showed.. tapi sehari jek demam)

yup.. maybe adam is not ready for egg yolk.. so stop dulu laaa.. maybe you can try again when he's 10-11 month.. tapi make sure the egg are well-cooked.. sbb sesetgh telor ade bakteria (tak ingat nama bakteria tuu) yg boleh bawak maut..

kenape doktor advised mcm tu.. sbb instant cereal are processed food specifically for the babies digestive system.. meaning the baby's body system can easily absord the nutrient from the food and can easily digest them (NOT like i'm promoting instant food).. most of our homemade food are not easily digested by babies and will cause bowel problem.. masa nadhrah start makan dulu pun, her doctor advise jgn bagik bubur nasi, kasik instant cereal dulu.. bile poo-poo dah ok.. baru start introduce homemade baby food..

but bare in mind.. each babies development is different.. certain babies cannot take instant babyfood (like nadhrah's cousin)..

aikk panjang lak.. hehehe..

umi nadhrah said...

one more thing.. hehe.. try spring clean your whole house.. maybe adam is sensitive with habuk ke ape ke at certain corner of the house...

mama ryan said...

mayb adam is allergic to egg yolk kot...

chun said...

ala..ciannye dadam..tp dot, my nieces mmg allergic to egg yolk. so, maybe adam pon same.tp xtaula kan..try to give him just porridge+vegetables. cause my nieces semua membesar dgn sihat just with that menu. bila dah besar sket baru tambah ikan bilis ke, telur ke, ayam ke.. hehe..mcm terel je..u know la i don't have real experience..so,feel free to ignore my 2 cent! ;p

Adam Hakeem said...

well my sis in law also had the same experience. She fully BM until my nephew 9 months coz shes a housewife. similar thing happen, baby muntah2. Then she realise that whenever her stomach empty and BF the baby, he'll muntah2..then they make sure there's milo and some bread whenever they travel or at home just to make sure perut tak kosong/lapar..the baby tak muntah2 dah..coz what you eat is what your baby will taste in the BM..kalau KFC, they'll also eat the KFC but in milk form..belasah je..telebih sudah..

aidamunira said...

hi aida,
demam for kids is normal. akak breastfeed pun anak still demam/selsema but usually tak lama. breastfeed is good however as the baby grows up he'll need more nutrients from other sources. you also have to ensure that ur breast milk is the quality one. u might want to take supplements such as omega 3, calcium&magnesium, more protein. this is not only for ur baby but for yourself as well

Mamamarina said...

Dear Aida..


just make it simple.. baby punyer food taken kene buat byk experiment kalo die start vomitting after u introduced egg yolk then remove laa egg yolk.. maybe he's not ready yet.. doc utk bagi kiter some alternative ways or choices but the important thing is follow ur motherhood instinct.. like Ariff kan ade athma Paed adviced me to change his FM from choc based to free lactose or non choc based FM but i refused... my instinct choc based product doesnt trigger his athma and Alhamdulillah my guess is right.. condition each kid kan laen2..

one more thing.. according to paed.. compared to baby girl, baby boy is more fragile during this time.. but their antibodi will get stronger and stronger as they growing up.. i hope so.. im experienced with Iffah and Ariff.. Ariff penah demam x abes2 for 3 months.. demam.. batuk.. selsema.. but time tuh as he started to mobile.. crawling around... he's better.. but now we are only dealing with his athma... its not ur BM laaa gang... dont worry, BM is always the best choice.. tapi biase laaa budak2 nak besar macam2 laaa kene go through..

omg aida sorry to hear bout adam.

Tapi pelik. nasihat from your doc is totally different from my Doc Azizi from DSH. he says, strictly introduce baby to homemeal cereal which are basicly bubur nasi lah and proceed with simple veges and l8er fruits. Baby cereal on the shelf are all kononnye commercial baby food which are made sweeter than they are supposed to. So since then haiqal is on strict vegetarian menu, untilll 8 mths baru i intro salmon and chicken stocks. Daging telur not yet. ALhamdulillah his system accepts it all due to pure homemade bubur & EBM.

i think i read somewhere(babycenter?) to intro telur only after 1yr old. I suggest u wait l8er sket kot to give him complex food.

No mom is a bad mom. We're doing the best we could without the mom-manual book. so cheer up!

Lan0stZz said...

I've also heard bout BM with no quality.

Kononnya this lady says all his 5 children whom were on FM had nice teeth, tapi the last one fully BF for 3yrs gigi reput hitam abes. so who to blame? she said its her susu. well i say it may be the kid's habit of sleeping with botol susu. dunno lah.

watever pun i'm eating all the good stuff for the baby. Bfast, Lunch & DInner twice a day boleh? Anak pun dah lebih besar dr mak..camne ni ;P

get well soon Adam!

along said...

i give Hafiy baby biscuit. not bcos xmo bg homemade, i just give him homemade porridge bile i ada kt umah cos i dun believe in my maid. dia suka letak mcm2 dlm tu i.e. kicap, garam, etc. to make 'ada rasa'. maid yg dah ada ramai anak ni susah jgk nak bertekak sebab "anak Bibik pon dibagi makan ituini, tak apa2 lah". baik jgn kasik terusss. bila baby biscuit or fruits, she cant add anything dlm tu & baby biscuit is more hygenic from the pack, xpayah Bibik nk pegang2, potong2, etc.

& since hafiy sembelit teruk last 2 week, where i suspect bcos the Bibik xkasi dia minum air lepas makan (botol air xberusik, cawan xberusik..), mmg diharamkan terus dah food2 itu kecuali biskut baby je sal takutla plak Bibik igt Hafiy lapa, dia p suap nasik plak ke. huh.

to Adam i agree with everybody, maybe u can start later2. how did u add the yolk? rebus first & add or cook together with the porridge? i think rebus first is better since the yolk will fully masak. oh maybe u did rebus 1st & it cud be his system not ready.

& bear in mind that egg is a top allergen food http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/allergy.htm

agree with kak aidamunira, garbage in garbage out. for better quality of BM, you might want to take supplement (but dun forget malnutrition mothers still can BF healthy children).

& Lana (menyibuk je nak nyampuk ni hehe) egg yolk can be introduced aft 8MO, the whole egg aft 1YO.

ummi tasneem said...

wah, komen komen sumenya ber-info. syok baca komen aje. hehehe

harap2 adam cute cepat sembuh k. nnt boleh main2 dgn tasneem. =)

MommyAdam said...

mrs noba,
tq...adam dah ok without the egg yolk..

auni,
tq..alhamdulillah dia dah ok..

along,
betul gak tu...agaknye kalau on fm lagi teruk kot...

tuty,
tq...adam dah ok without the egg yolk..i lagila all the fruits/veges i freeze in bulk in ice cubes lama giler i simpan..hehe(boleh tahan 3 months but i use up in about a month)..tapi bubur nasi i masak every 2 days.then the fruits/vege mix and match daily..

ummi saeed,
tq...adam dah ok without the egg yolk..demam2 adam tak teruk2 pun..cuma selsema frequent..

umi nahdrah,
homemade rice adam ok je all these while...i guess just the eggs eventhough i boiled it well cooked...now he's ok without it..

mama ryan,
agaknyelah..

chun,
i guess just egg yolk lah...now dia ok je mkn bende lain..

adam hakeem,
don't think BM was the reason kot...i think it's the yolk..masa dia tgh muntah2 tu lagi byk kene kasik dia BM...

aidamunira,
i need to think about supplements...

marina,
yes...maybe i need to follow my own instict lah...

lana,
tq...adam is better without yolk..actually egg yolk is age appropriate (for 8mo + egg yolk, but egg whites only after 1yo mcm along ckp)..tapi i guess not for adam..

along,
yeah i need to think about supplememnt..i did boil the egg but i guess his system tak sesuai..or maybe the fact that the egg was ayam kampung...

MommyAdam said...

ummi tasneem,
tq..yeah rajin diorg kasi i byk info..adam dah ok dah..

ni cerita ibu anak tiga:
- baby to baby condition tak sama hatta adik-beradik sendiri pun.
- you've to differentiate alkaline & acidic foods. some foods are sometimes attributed to the Acidic side of the chart and sometimes to the Alkaline side i.e. eggs, milk. the link - here. babies stomach are sensitive as well.
- immune system develops from the very beginning i.e. from us. alhamdulillah my children rarely fall sick & having flu (even syafiah). tapi memang kalau dia dihantar ke nursery, selsema senang berjangkit sebab di nursery tu sendiri bebudak dia mempunyai tahap imun yang berbeza.
- akak beri makan kat anak-anak tak ikut milestone i.e. after 6 months. it could be after 7/8/9. depends pada penerimaan mereka.
- sometimes you've to expose your baby to play dirt (bacteria of course).... immune won't develop in a hygiene area.

at least that's from my experiences. mungkin the doctor gave you the advice on the current condition of your baby. kan setiap baby tak sama...
