Most women are worried that they would have wider hips after pregnancy. It is unavoidable but the size can be shrinked to normal size, the size when you haven’t got pregnant. I am a Mom of 2 kids, and I still have my pre-pregnancy body. Well, I have a Grandma who is quite strict when it comes to post-partum. She (and she ‘allied’ with my mom) to ensure that I learn how to wear bengkung or traditional wrap (traditional girdle or even corset) during my confinement period, that is, 44 days. I had to bear the fact that I could not wash my hair during my confinement. No cakes, no biscuits, no cabbage, no juices, and not even fried foods during my confinement days. It was a strict one but the most challenging part was the traditional wrap! The worst situation was to unwrap when I had to go to pee. Continue Reading
Most of us would go for online shopping these days because of the convenience and lower price than the brick-and-mortar. Yet, most of us would prefer to make payment using cash than card because the need to have more control over personal credit management. However, paying by cash while shopping online is no longer a problem because we can now make cash payment at the nearest 7-Eleven outlets when we bought something via online. I would like to share my online shopping experience using MOLPay Cash when shopping at Motherhood.com.my recently. Continue Reading
I usually bring my kids out for a jog in the park because I’d prefer them to lead an active lifestyle rather than staying inside the house watching TV and playing with iPad. So, there are a few considerations which I need to take care especially when the kids are outside their home. First and foremost, living in a tropical country such as Malaysia, it’s impossible to avoid mosquitoes which every one of us would surely worried to have a red marks on the skin. Sometimes, it can be worst to the extent that it looked like a pimple. In order to ensure that my kids are always ‘safe’ when playing outside, I use mosquitoes repellant which I bought from the drugstores. This time, I tried Guardian BuzzAway Insect Repellant. Read more about what I have in mind. Continue Reading
One of the challenges of being mother is the need to be more sensitive in terms of price, features/contents/ingredients, and quality. I hope I don’t turn myself into a fussy momster. *LOL* I can spend nearly 30 minutes at the baby department store just to read through the ingredients/contents, and comparing it with other brands. It’s time consuming, for sure. Today’s post (after weeks of hiatus) is going to be Drypers Baby Wipes which I recently bought from the hypermarket. It’s a bit pricey compared to other brands of baby wipes. Continue Reading
Nutrition is very important for kids’ growth and the nutrients needed by the kids are the same needed by adults except the amounts vary. In fact, growth requirements together with physical activity play an important role in determining the kid’s nutritional needs. Thus, it’s important to ensure that the kid gets a balanced and complete nutrition so he can grow to fulfil his full potential.
I always argue with my hubby when choosing the best bath cream for our kids. I admit that hubby actually knows better when choosing bath cream with nice and mild scent while me is a more ‘rebel’ type – I’d prefer to have stronger scent in which my mum has always said I don’t have a ‘woman’s taste’. Oh well, I just let my hubby (or mom) them decide whenever it has something to do with scent. As for today, the review is all about Carrie Junior Baby Bath in Groovy Grapeberry, bought by hubby.
Shopping for baby bath can be a pain in the ass for parents who are welcoming their newborn baby. There are tons of baby bath lining up in the market which make parents indecisive because some ingredients in a baby bath can over-dry the baby skin, and a few can lead to itchiness. Yes. Baby skin is very sensitive especially the newborn. Some of us follow what our family recommends us, and most of us would pop out a question on the Facebook, asking other mommies which baby bath that is good for baby. Here’s my experience using Johnson’s Baby Bedtime Bath ever since the arrival of my 2nd baby.
