at first dey dont let mi drink plain water, dey give mi brown rice water.. dey take e brown rice to fry it then soak with hot water cos dey say brown rice can get rid e wind of e water... but it taste like plain water also like no difference..
Some folks tend to be more "strict". I was also a bit sick of red dates tea & request todrink something plain. If it was mother in law who helped me during confinement, it's a no-no. But my CL allowed a warm plain water once a week.
Yes, too much will make the face "swell".
even when meal time, living room fan off, windows shut, dressed her exposing only head & palm. wear slippers.

Ya Loves ~ sighs cant wait to get my own love nest fast~ everything is just so restricted
i never had a single sip of water, dan wen my hub insist on bringing me out during confinement, dan i had sips of water. i dont dare to drink too much, cos scare water retention. so never really take. my mother in law say canot. dan i canot b bothered to talk to her either. My son got hospitalise during his 1st month, n in the hos i dont have enough red dates n longan drink, i went to buy milo. but its cold, so i left it there but im too thirsty so i just didnt bother much n wen ahead to finish it all up right away. not really cold thou but it was so cooling. OMG!!! and my mother in law wants me to drink cold drinks only after 40 days. it was horrible. so i told my hubby no more 2nd 1. i cant stand confinement. to me its like HELL!! im sulking thru out my 1 month.
I didn't drink 1 drop of date/longan tea. It was my mom who told me no need. I got wind 2 weeks later though, and I got a tummy ache then. However, 2 1/3cups of ginger water (1 morning, 1 night) did the cure. It is not true that drinking plain water during confinement will cause water retention.
anyway its over.. weee!!! so dont want to rem about it. horrible.
i only had a few sips of warm plain water during the 1st 2 weeks. my mother in law totally forbid me to drink plain water as she said if i want to end up like her having super flabby tummy, then go ahead. so i stick to red dates, sometimes i secretly have a few sips of plain water cuz red dates can be quite sweet.
Had red/black dates drink for the whole day, at nite, when there is little left, I add a bit of hot water to drink.... had milk and soups also through out the day.
but what do you think? does all this make any different?
cos I get heatiness easily which means I will have ucler & constipation easily once I get heaty. So in just few days at the hospital they gave me tonic soup every meal when I got home I got consitpation...then my mom wants me to drink the logan red date..my consitpation got worse & have uclers too. so the rest of the month during the confinement, i didnt have much tonic soup nor anymore red date tea.
mom told me to drink lots of water...no cold water...then take warm bath..pratically hot bath!
I dont't drink plain water now.
But I drink when I was in school in the past.
Our school playground has many free plain water outlets.
Me also had sore throat during my confinement drinking red dates longan for the 1-2 weeks. Then I changed to drinking plain water. Stop drinking red dates longan water anymore. After deliver my 2nd baby, I intend to drink plain water as well. During confinement cant afford to fall sick as we have to look after our newborn.
Drink a bit of everything...
anything allowed except plain water.
When I finished my Longan and red dates tea, I drink plain water. So thirsty.
I took plain water too, but I must first finish the flask of longan red dates water first. I also took choc milk. dont care...
