Well, it's not because I don't like my parents to babysit Husayn, it's just usually when Husayn was down with fever my babysitter is the one who always knew what to do. I'm fine if my parents are babysitting Husayn when Husayn himself is in good health. I mean it's not like I have never left him at home with my parents before while I went for days of courses.
I guess I have to admit now that I am too dependent on my babysitter. I mean I can't even insert the ubat punggung on my son because he kept crying, while my babysitter can do it with so much ease. Let me tell you about my babysitter. She is 40++, she also babysits a few other kids besides mine and best of all she's my own auntie! I mean since she's my auntie, I know that Husayn will always be well taken care of. Husayn usually will be down with fever every month or every once in two months and he is so very very cranky and cerewet whenever he became feverish.
Anyway last night, me and my mother went for the traditional way. Mother mix the air asam jawa with daun limau and then we lumur the whole thing on Husayn so the fever will cool down. To tone down the heat even more, we took the aloe vera and cover his head with it. Alhamdulillah he slept without no problem at all last night. But this morning when I went to work I felt his body starting to heat up again.
And I really felt so futile!
Anybody care to share the right technique to insert the ubat punggung? Maybe it would really really help. After all, I am a clueless first time mother, so please bear with me.
