Breastfeeding Class

Last Saturday, Husband and I attended the Breastfeeding class conducted at the Gyne clinic in RIPAS. We learned a lot from the class, apart from my side reading from breastfeeding mommies group in Facebook which is very helpful too.

According to the article, to enable mothers to establish and sustain exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months (highly recommended), WHO and UNICEF recommend:
  • Initiation of breastfeeding within the first hour of life
  • Exclusive breastfeeding – without additional food, formula milk and water
  • Breastfeeding on demand – as often as Baby wants
  • Do not use bottles, teats or pacifiers
What I can conclude from the talk is to always think positive and happy thoughtswhile breastfeeding your Baby to encourage your milk supply other than the spending the precious time with your Baby. Mudah-mudahan diberikan rezeki yang banyak to breastfeed my Baby nanti. Amin ya Rabbal ‘Alamin!
Benefits of exclusive breastfeeding, for Baby:
  • better mental development
  • protect against ear infections
  • better mouth formation
  • reduce risk of asthma
  • less eczema
  • reduce risk of obesity
  • reduce risk of childhood diabetes
  • protect against gastro-intestinal infections
  • protect against urine infections
  • less smelly nappies
Another important note I’d like to share with everyone. TIPSDO NOT buy feeding bottles. Hehe.. Lucky I bought them in a set. I’m not hoping that I’ll be using them since feeding bottles and teats are not recommendable.
Overall, what you actually need to have a successful breastfeeding (this comes from a pregnant lady who has not experience breastfeeding and did a lot of research and reading)
  • to invest in an excellent breastpump (preferably Medela freestyle or swing – both function the same but FS can use double pump)
  • storage bags for expressed breastmilk (EBM)
  • freezer – to keep your EBM stocks
  • bottle warmer – to thaw frozen EBM at the right temperature
  • few bottles – need to use them to warm EBM afterall
  • Medela’s feeding cup!!! (I’ll take the pic once I got them)
  • A LOT of positive thoughts and support :D

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…
