The birth of a baby is a beautiful moment that the family awaits excitedly. But what happens in the next few weeks that follow? It’s not always a bed of roses and often the new mom gets the blues. There are so many things to do and prepare for baby, and then there are breastfeeding woes, the challenge of losing the pregnancy pounds…and of course, what about all those confinement traditions that a new mum is supposed to follow?
Freaking out just thinking about it, are you? Well, this week, on theAsianparent.com, we take the ‘Confinement’ route.
Over the next few days, we’ll be covering a variety of articles on confinement, from hiring a confinement nanny to listing yummy tingkat services available.

We even have a DIY confinement guide, for those who are on a tight budget!
