Cranky Baby, Cranky Mama

My baby girl is one month old now. I quoted this from "Newborn babies are hard work. Being the parent of a newborn who cries a lot even harder work."
Parents out there especially mothers know what I mean. Not enough sleep during night and have to breastfeed the little one with one eye open is one hard thing to do. Yeah you can guess I once fell asleep while feeding her.
My baby girl usually sleeps during day. The issue here is, she cries when we want to put her to sleep during night but that doesn't happen during day time. She can sleep by herself after I fed her. She even fell asleep while I fed her sometimes! I am OK if she wakes up and decided .. 'Hey mama, wake up and let's play rocking-chair'. But what makes me stressed is she cried instead.
Not only babies can go cranky, mothers too. Especially when you don't get enough sleep and fatigue. There are times I feel like I want to scream so loud. I tried my very best not to shout at kiddo and Mr. Fruitheart over small things. Oh you don't know how I CONTROL it.
I do not need to be reminded of babies sleep during day time and awake during night time. I do not need to be told to check on her diapers, stomach ache, whether she is cold or hot, comfy, need cuddling, need to be hold and everything. I do read the tips and articles from babycentre and advice from my parents and in laws. But when your baby starts to cry after everything is checked, you just don't know what else they want.
I just need to be reminded, there's nothing wrong with my baby and it is OK for her to cry and not BLAMING myself. I know this crying is a phase and it will soon pass. You just hang on there Fara!
P/S: I love you baby girl.

ASTRO: Just Because of RM10.45

On last Thursday, we had an issue with our ASTRO. We reached home and as usual, kiddo switched on the TV and click on her fave channel. However, there was a message:

We apologise for the service interruption. To resume service please SMS: Astro RCO XXXXX(Smartcard number) and send to 66688. For customers in Brunei, please call 151. (TCI)

So I sent an SMS, and got a reply:
RM0.00 You are currently not eligible for this transaction. Please make payment immediately to enjoy full ASTRO services again. Thank you.

Our ASTRO has been barred?? Mr. Fruitheart checked our history payment and confirmed we had paid. So, I had to call ASTRO. I called the toll free line and since I'm using the ASTRO IPTV, I was being transferred to another line.

I asked the customer service representative to check and she told me our ASTRO account has an outstanding payment. I was like WHAT? Outstanding payment? How much? Oh no! Did Mr. Fruitheart paid to the wrong account? Because I had 2 under my name.


Confinement Packages / Pakej Berpantang

During my last pregnancy, I hired a confinement lady (CL) from Jemari tradisional to take care of me after I delivered my baby girl. This time around I have not decided yet where I will be staying during my confinement days and not sure if I will get the same CL from JT.

So, I have started to search for confinement lady / confinement packages / post natal packages / post natal care/ penjaga pantang / pakej pantang / pakej urut bersalin on the Internet. I found few that looks OK but some of the websites were not updated. I do not know if they're still on business.

So here are the lists:

Dilemma: Taska / Nursery for The Girls

We're back to square one. Scratching our head, thinking hard and have to make an important decision. My sister can no longer take care of my girls, she has accepted a job offer in KLIA2.

Definitely not going to hire another helper. I do not want face another headache, frustration and have stranger into our house. It would also cost us thousands of Ringgit again which we don't have. Now we're considering sending the girls to a childcare centre. Choosing a childcare centre is NOT easy. Reliable and registered are normally full.

I had done my research on the Internet, browsing the JKM website looking for registered taska / nursery. I called few places and they are no longer accepting new entry.

I had called this centre named Taska Umi Setia Kasih in Danau Kota. I prefer this taska since it is close to kiddo's transit house and school. It is also close to my in law's house. And it is just opposite the police station. Aha. There is a place for Arissa, but I have to wait fo…
