Bebe bargains is happy to bring mompreneur stories in one platform where wonderful mothers can share their experiences. Let’s see what Nur Dalila has to say.
What Do You Have To Share With Us About Your Career Or Hobby?
First of all, thanks to Bebe Bargains for choosing me. I’m Nur Dalila Ahmad, engineer in one of private engineering company in Penang, Malaysia. My career had been so important to me, so central to my life. All mothers have to make choices and we’re judged differently. I’m a mother of twins. This is my best moment ever to me and my husband, Mohd Khairul Samsudin when the doctor said that I will get twins baby. We’re really shocked and excited to hear about that because that was our first baby.
Do You Think Motherhood Is A Gift?
The joy in motherhood comes in moments. There will be hard times and frustrating times, but amid the challenges there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction. For me, motherhood is a special gift because not everyone can feel the experience to be a mother. One thing that really surprised me is the level of calmness that comes with motherhood. I used to worry about every little thing, things that were just beyond my control, but after my twins baby boys, Muhammad Khairan Dhuha & Muhammad Khairin Dhuha was born, I realized that worrying is a total waste of energy. There was a time when I was a stressed-out mom to a fussy newborn, and I think the two were linked. Now, we are just two chill peas in a pod. Having twins puts it all in perspective.
What Is Your Thought About Working Mothers?
As you know, being a working mother is not simple as you think. You need to plan and balance your time. It’s quite hard for me because this is my first experience to feel it. The choices for working mothers are more costly than it is for men. If you can, structure your work schedule for flexibility and everything will be just fine.
What Baby Products You Get Rid Of?
I try to get rid of or have done before is cotton balls. This was a tip we picked up from the baby basics class we took at the hospital before our first was born.
What Second Hand Things You Would Like To Buy?
I would be happy to buy some things like a cot, drawers, furniture, etc, second hand, obviously not the mattress though. Clothes I’m happy for second hand, they probably have been hardly worn and you can easily clean/sanitise them.
