Baby Food Recipe

EJ is now turns 1 year plus and she loves her food. We agree to really check on her food consumption and to choose the best food for her. No junk food and most of all to provide her as organic as we can give her.

Preparing for baby’s food is not that hard. It’s fun actually. For our EJ, we give her mostly fruits and veggies. She loves just eating her veggies alone!

Here is another recipe for baby we made for our EJ.

Chicken ,Spinach and peas ( with sweet potatoes)

  1. Pour some water to pan, and add in chicken for 5 minutes.
  2. Then add in peas.
  3. Followed by spinach.
  4. Once all smooth, put in the food processor.
  5. Cook sweet potatoes separately.
  6. Once blend, put into silicon food cube to frost.

Whenever it’s time to feed your baby, just take out the frozen food and steam it. Remember to choose the food cube container with lid, to make sure the food is clean and not contaminated.

I usually use 2 cubes for EJ per meal. It’s simple and can lasts about 3 days :).

 

Little Baby

Our little baby is coming soon!

So excited and a bit worry too, because our EJ is just 1 year and 4 months when he arrive. How would she react? Will she be jealous with her new sibling? Well to consider she won’t have the full attention she used to have before.

Luckily for the second one, we don’t have to spent lots on baby items since we can just use our little EJ’s stuffs.

And how about me? ha ha..can i handle two little babies at once? How do you handle yours?

 

Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work.

Do we need flashcards for our baby?

I was thinking to DIY my own flashcards for EJ since 3 months . She is 11 months now and maybe she should start learning by flashcard.

Ej start to learn animal’s sound like mia-mia for cats, kog kog for dog, koook kook or kukuta kukuta for chicken and lizard sounds ( i cant spell how lizard sound hahahah).

Then i finally decided, let her learn with whatever in her surrounding, at least until she is more than a year old, then maybe i can think of something. Let her explore and play and learn by her own.

The best flu remedy for your baby

Since EJ was born, i tried my best not to give her any medicine from drug stores, even it is prescribed by doctor. She should not consume any drugs before at least she is 1. There is this time, when she was 3 months old, having a very bad flu, doctor prescribed flu medicine but says: The best is not to give her unless you really have to.

As a mom, i wanted the best for my EJ. So i decided to try home remedy instead.

a. lemon: I use lemon to bath her. Cut about 3 slices of lemon, and put it into a glass of hot water. Pour it into your baby bath tub, with cold water. With natural antibacterial properties and high levels of vitamin C, lemon bath can help your baby to breath easily and as disease thrives in an acidic environment, it’s alkalizing effect also promote health.

b. Garlic: Take raw garlic, bake it in the oven, crush it  Rub it to your baby foot, put on her socks. Leave it overnight. It will helps your baby to sleep better, and reduces the chances for her to get cold.

Trust me, it works-well at least for my EJ. Lets try any home remedies for our baby first before turns to prescribed drugs. It will helps your baby to grow naturally without any influence of unnecessary drugs.

But please also note that, this is only for flu, cold and not serious symptom. Doctor advise should be followed in case of other health condition.

 

My baby food – Sweet Potatoes Porridge

Little EJ loves sweet potatoes. She won’t eat her food without the existence of sweet potato he he.

One recipe she really loves is sweet potatoes with long bean and rice. It’s as simple as chop all ingredients – except for the rice, put all in a pot, pour water and cook until all become smooth and blend together.

You can also add some chicken to it if you want. EJ loves this recipe.

 

 

Mommy’s Dry skin – Aloe Fresh Soothing Moisture Gel

I am having this very dry skin since couples of months ago, and it really makes my skin so ewww. I hate it so much my skin will irritate easily, and i will start to scratch and scratch and scratch . Tried few types of lotions still end up with no improvement. I even use my EJ’s baby lotion he he.

Yesterday I went to TheFaceShop,Imago at KK Times Square, and bought Aloe Fresh Soothing Moisture Gel. I don’t know if it will really work as it claims, but well just try. Costs me RM46 for 3 pcs. It is actually on promotion so buy 2 get 1 free :D.

Tried it last night after shower, and this morning after shower. Well… I love it! My skin really moisturized, and the itchy is no longer there. I really love it. This soothing gel moisture gel can be used for various purposes, including moisturizing, soothing facial pack,after-sun care and hair mask. Well great deal for one for all purposes rite :). Aloe barbadensis leaf juice soothes and moisturizes at the same time, absorbed into the skin without leaving any sticky residue behind.

My review on Onya Outback baby carrier

First of all, this is not a paid review 🙂 .

Just my humble write up on Onya Outback babycarrier, yes I LOVE IT .

As a new parent, i have no experience on whatever it is related to baby carrier. All i know is a ‘hambin’ (a sling wrap we Dusun people use to carry baby.  ), which my mother and her mother and my grandmother’s mother use.

Me and our EJ, testing our newly arrived Onya.

Do you actually know that there are six basic types of baby carriers: baby wraps, baby slings, mei-tais, soft-structured carriers, front-facing carriers and frame backpacks? Ha ha i don’t even know there are so many of them exist! *Confusing* confusing*.

After few weeks doing my homework on the best baby carrier , we decided to use OnyaBaby – fall at Soft-Structured carriers (SCC). It is a great choice for us. Both me and my husband are very active with outdoor activities, and we always want to bring our daughter with us. With Onya, it won’t be a problem because it is secure, the material is airy and good for my sweaty husband!

The Outback offers a durable, water-resistant rip-stop nylon exterior and Air-Mesh lining to keep you and your baby cool, dry and comfortable. Perfect for all your adventures in any climate, a new approach to the soft-structured baby carrier.

The buckle is very secure you don’t have to worry about safety. It even have a hidden stripe buckle. Awesome.

Another fantastic feature that sets the Onya Baby carrier apart from all the rest is the chair harness function you can use anywhere there’s a chair. Yes, it is very useful so we don’t have to bring everything whenever we travel.

I am a happy Onya baby carrier’s owner 🙂 . If anyone of you has any question regarding Onya Baby Carrier, just give me a buzz, i will try to help. Not that i am Onya expert haha, just based on experience.

My journey becoming a mom is not as easy as i think it might be. I am so blessed, to have  my beautiful,cheeky EmmaJane Surindi, and yet the motherhood life totally change my life.

My husband who works at KL, can only go back once every two months. Since i don’t trust other people to take care of my daughter, i send her to my mom’s place at Ranau. And here i am, at KK.

3 different cities for the three of us.

It is hard. Knowing that i won’t be able to see her cheeky smiles next to me everyday. But that’s the best solution for now.

Travelling 260KM every week is my life now. Weekend means EJ’s time. It’s really exhausting, yet give me so much satisfaction.  Just to hug kiss and sleep next to me little girl.

I wish life will be better soon. And i know, wishing alone will not make things happen. Yes, i am working soooo hard for the better life I am wishing for 🙂 .
