How to Cloth Diaper a Newborn

How to Cloth Diaper a Newborn

We are in the midst of learning on how to use the traditional lampin (flats diapers). How to fold them correctly, how to increase its absorbency and to do a little bit of “modernisation” to the lampin using diaper covers. ;)
Iman and I initially have decided on using just the disposable diapers during the first couple of months and then to slowly change to cloth diapers. However, both my parents have another plan, that is to use the traditional lampin while I am still in my confinement period. Dang! Mom said, it’s very HOT during the day and you don’t want Baby to get diaper rash, do you? *give up arguing! hehe*
Instead of continuing my (excessive) reading on different brand of cloth diapers and their reviews, I have been looking for information on using flat diapers. Again, Cloth Diaper Malaysia doesn’t fail me to give such a valuable information. Thank you Farhana! :D  Here are the links that I have been reading,
From my recent reading, I know that Autumnz is not suitable for a newborn. On a brighter side, I can use their inserts to increase the absorbency in flat diapers. Yay!!! Since I only have 4 MFI, I guess we still have to wash it everyday. I have 4 Flips stay dry inserts coming though. I wonder if it will works. Will definitely try them.
I have also bought a diaper cover from YippeeHouse Tan. Only one though, Baby Beehind (BBH) newborn nappy cover in Metropolitan (which I love the pattern so much!) and it cost $13.90 only. Next month, they will be reviewing their prices though. :( Considering that we will only be using flat diapers during the day, we will definitely need to wash the cover every night and lucky it is in PUL so it dries quicker even under the fan.
The more I read, truthfully speaking, I become more keen on cloth diapering our Baby full-time. We definitely in a huge savings advantage from buying disposable diapers every month (keep in mind, the price changes as the size change, but they definitely wear them less when they become a toddler or have started potty training).
We just can’t wait to experience all these new things when Baby arrives :D Insya Allah ♥

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.

1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.

Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…
