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.
So you are new parent and don’t know how to start with Cloth Diaper (CD) . Yes, i was in your shoes before, totally have no idea on what CD is.
Here in Sabah ( Malaysia,Borneo), buying CD is quite expensive, especially the branded one. So if you are not sure whether you like cloth diapering or not, you can try these tips:
1. Buy 4 sets of CD first.
Most parents fail with this one. They tend to buy dozens of CDs and end up not using them. For a starter, you can actually use 4 sets of CDs, so you can decide if it’s your thing or not. Of course you will have to wash it daily with just 4 sets, but it will really train you on using CD rite 🙂
2. Do not buy all the accessories – just yet.
When you are still in decision phase, just use the basic. No need all accessories like they put it on ads. Yes, they helps a lot, but only when you are fully on CD. Remember to just go with the basic.
3. For new born, please use the right size.
Right size for your baby is crucial. Most parents will hate cloth diapering because the size. Yes, size does matter. Use NB size for newborn, or else the urine will end up on your baby mattress, and you will hate Cloth Diaper forever :D.
In Sabah, there a few stores you can visit to buy your starter kit. You can try www.facebook.com/babypeeka . They are located at Kota Kinabalu Sabah, and selling baby stuffs including Cloth Diaper.
