Have you heard about it?
Well I havent until Adam was disgnosed with it
It is not a disease but it is more like sometic genetically inherited from your parents
and in this situation Adam inherited it from me
I am a carrier but I do not experience neither the symptoms nor the allergy triggered by foods and medication

G6PD deficiency is an inherited condition in which the body doesn't have enough of the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, or G6PD, which helps red blood cells (RBCs) function normally. This deficiency can cause hemolytic anemia, usually after exposure to certain medications, foods, or even infections. There is no known cure nor do you grow out of it. It is a life long condition. The only thing you can do is avoid substances which cause oxidative stress and that use G6PD

Caring for a G6PD will be most challenging when they will be in school
Because then we will no longer have the control on what they eat, what they touch and such
Looking at the list of food to avoid for G6PD deficient I cried
Because theres too many good things that they cant consume and whats more daunting is these stuff are easily and commonly used in food making
For example Soybean

Educating your child with the Do's and Dont's will be the crucial part in our parenthood process soon. I pray hard to Allah that He will ease and make it slightly easier for us to care for lil Adam and ensure he will still experience the best childhood experience even with this condition

For now, I feed him with the best food he can get in this world

Breast milk!!!!

Breastfeeding I kid you not is the most amazing experience ever. You get to bond with your baby and the most amazing thing is when they look at you when they suckle and try to hold your hand
Being amazing as it is, it is not easy as well especially in the first week
But once you get the flow, everything will be easy for you and your baby

By breastfeeding, you must ensure you get the right nutrition to let your body prepare the most yummy milk ever for your baby
Your meal has to be packed with Vitamins, Carbs, Protein and most importantly to stay dehydrated and drink 3L of water everyday


But if you cant stand the taste of Full Cream Milk, try this one
