I also have to take care of Iris’s feeling. I have to head off any feelings of jealousy between her and Iesha. I guess it is hard for her to adjust to this new situation. The first week was so hard for both of us. She tried to get away from me; she spent most of her time with Bapak, Anya, Wawan, Tok Ba and Nek Ma. She only came for breastfeeding. Yet, at the very moment, I get to know my newborn Iesha. It was hard I tell you, and then I know how important the role of “The Spouse”. He did most of the things in his paternity leave, from changing diapers, cooking meals for me, bathing Iris and Iesha, go shopping, and giving some extra support and company. I wished him Happy Mother’s Day on May 9th, because he is. Yet the most important thing “The Spouse” can do for you are listening to your heart, not only listening but contemplating each word we said.
I am grateful as well since Tok Ba and Nek Ma and Anya help me a lot. It is good when people I trust give some extra attention to Iris in these few weeks, so that I have time to discover my new divine baby Iesha. Oh my, there’s so much to do! There are so many things in my “To-Do” list; blogging about Iesha early weeks, making Tutu dress for Iris, e-shopping for Iesha’s aqiqah dress, compiling Iris’s photos, bla bla bla…
Miriam Stoppard tips help me in some way.
1. Sleep when your baby sleeps.
2. Don’t believe people who say their baby sleeps through the night already.
3. Accept whatever help you are offered.
4. Focus on your baby.
And “The Spouse” magical words – “You are a supermom, She”. I think that’s enough for me.
