    Congratulations! So happy to hear about the safe arrival. Just one question – what is this “confinement” people are referring to? I’m very curious to know….

      Hallo, confinement refers to a period of rest by a new mummy. It’s an asian or chinese term, I think. See http://www.babycenter.com.my/pregnancy/asian-postnatal-practices/confinement-practices/

        Well, that was a fascinating read! Thank you for sharing the link so I could learn your practices! It is certainly different to how it is done here in Canada, where mom and baby are out of the hospital and home sometimes within 24 hours of the birth, and then pretty much on their own! Now, we do have public health nurses who will pay you a couple of visits, and you can take your baby to someone who can help you with any nursing problems. If you’re very lucky (I wasn’t!) you have a mother or mother in law who might help out for the first couple weeks.
        The idea of an extended period designed to give the new mom time to rest, heal and bond with her baby is a great idea – though I have to admit, the westerner in me rebels at some of the practices, lol, but that’s just my upbringing speaking. A number of years ago I used to work with high school students preparing to spend time abroad studying, and one of the things we tried to drill into the kids was that just because something is different from what you’re used to, that doesn’t make it wrong. Our favourite saying was “it’s not right, it’s not wrong, it’s just different”, and I think that most aspects of the confinement are absolutely RIGHT!

        Glad to share. Well, we don’t follow the confinement practices completely nowadays. For example, I wash my hair everyday although I’m not supposed too. But the water that I use for bathing contains some herbs.
