Eli is getting stronger and gives me backpain and cramps. Looks like he can’t wait to join his sister. Maybe he hear so much noise ( Emma’s screaming and crying and humming) and curious to know. 😀
Sleeping is really a struggle nowdays. My tummy is so big it’s really hard to get the right position each time. It will take me 1 to 2 hours to get the right position and finally fall asleep.
Apple cider vinegar is my favourite drink now. Ha ha, have to drink it for my bowel movement and for the skin. Skin dryness really bothering me, but no lotion or any moisturiser can cure the dryness. Home remedy, is the fantastic Apple Cider Vinegar. I drink it with 2 spoons on honey and a glass of water twice a day. The taste? Hmm so far i can handle it haha.
Eli is now 32 weeks. He is a strong baby boy, keep jumping,kicking and do the somersault inside my tummy. It’s painful sometimes, but yeah, it shows how healthy my baby Eli is.
Checkup with Dr Sutha at JMC is now every 2 weeks. Quite tedious but, well all for Eli. Luckily JMC is just 5 minutes away from my office, the only thing is the waiting. Hurgh, Dr Sutha really have soooo many fans..haha..
I keep getting the painful contraction, and it’s just 32 weeks. Well in facts, i have been getting it since 30 weeks. Only braxton hicks (BH), but when it comes, i could hardly move from whatever i was doing. Painful from the tummy to the back. Wohoo Eli, you sure a sporty little man!
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)
Pour some water to pan, and add in chicken for 5 minutes.
Then add in peas.
Followed by spinach.
Once all smooth, put in the food processor.
Cook sweet potatoes separately.
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 :).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
