Food and food supplement when travelling with special needs.

In the name of Allah; the Merciful; the Compassionate - بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
May the peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be with you - السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Hi! I'm back. Alhamdulillah I'm so glad that I'm home. I'm telling you that even Muja feels great that she is home in her familiar environment. Traveling is so tiring especially with special needs child plus other children. But we enjoyed every minutes of it and would like to do it again...

Where should I started with? Let me think...

Ok maybe I'll start with the foods. No! Not the foods yet because I have to load some pictures. Oh well, when will I have the time to load those pictures?

Alhamdulillah, I don't have to worry about what to cook for 8 weeks. This is what I call a holiday. No cooking! I am so greatful for that.

As for Muja, her food is simple. I took 12 cans of 900g Padiesure formula for Muja during our travel. I also packed her feeding tubes and syringes. Subhana Allah, here I am complaining about food and get bored with the same old food while Muja has been on Pediasure almost most of her life. O Allah, make me grateful to your blessing, Ameen.



I always make du'a that one day Muja can really eat real food and enjoy it. Then she can say bye bye to the nasogastric tube feeding and be finished with it.

Masha Allah, Muja is growing according to her aunty. She looks fatter and taller. Alhamdulillah, Muja didn't have any problems with eating and she kept it well in her tummy. She vomited only occasionally in the plane.

She was well during traveling. She open her bowel every 2 to 3 days with the help of Movicol for children. She takes the herbal which was prescribed by her Acupuncturist every day and magnesium to relax her muscles.

I took homeopathy remedies too. Muja has been taking it since she was 9 months old even for her teething and fever. For my travel sickness I took homeopathic remedy Cocculus and alhamdulillah it works well.

Our skins are very sensitive to mosquito bites. My Naturalpath said that we need Vitamin B so we took the supplement with us. We took mozzie repellents and homeopathic remedy Ledum for insect bite itchiness. Sleeping under the fan also help the mozzie away. At Muja's aunty house she put the mosquito repellent incense, but I can't stand it, it smell and not to mention the smoke. It keeps the mozzie away very well. Alhamdulillah we were protected by any disease causes by the mozzie.

I think thats about it for now. I will update more later. There is so much to tell but I don't know where to start.

Muja is the BEST during the travel! Masha Allah!

Waalaikum salam warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

Selamat datang dan terima kasih kerana meniggalkan komen di lightnur.

Percayalah ditahun pertama saya juga tidak faham mengapa anak saya, Muja, sering menangis, tidak boleh makan dan tidak boleh tidur malam.

Semoga Allah mempermudahkan perjalanan hidup anda bersama anak istimewa anda Nabila. Sesungguhnya Allah tidak akan membebani kita dengan apa yang kita tidak mampu menanggungnya. Anak istimewa ini tidak dianugerahkan kecuali kepada ibubapa yang mulia.

Insha Allah saya bersedia kongsi pengalaman dan maklumat bersama apa yang saya tahu. Maklumlah masih banyak yang perlu saya pelajari dalam kehidupan dengan anak istimewa ini.

Sekali lagi terima kasih dan silakan ke lightnur dilain waktu.
