How do you feel after doing confinement at home?
I felt tired. As newborn still need cuddle and milk at night, I didn’t get enough sleep. I need to wake up and take care baby myself.
Any advice for other mothers?
In my opinion, it is will be good to stay at confinement center. At least new mother can get enough sleep. zzzz
You have a mixed marriage. How do you overcome the cultural difference on confinement?
It wasn’t that easy to adapt to the different culture. both confinement practices are different in approach but very similar in their dietary requirements which are to purge out the “wind” in the body after delivery also avoid “cooling” foods during the confinement period, such as, wear slipper in the house, shower with herbs, do not wash clothes, eat ginger and many many more. As I was staying with my parents, so most of the time, I follow Chinese traditional culture.
