Prevanar

Image
Baby Iqbal went to Paediatric Clinic for his prevanar jab. Mama said to prevent lung infection, and Iqbal has two jabs remaining. He cried briefly then he was okay again. I was a little bit teary though hearing him cry.

Mama's friends said Baby Iqbal is bigger than me (and Iman too). Lol! Baby Iqbal weights 5.585kgs, roughly at his two months. Good! Hehe

Just a short post. Im using my handphone now. I leave you with Baby Iqbal in his car seat. :D

Two months old

Assalammualaikum  Baby Iqbal is two months old today!!!  ♥ Mama Babah love you Sayang!!! Let’s see.. What shall we talk about Baby Iqbal today? ;p Ohh his development and milestones!  In the last two months, once Baby Iqbal caught heat rash (and was told by mom’s Doc that he might have a mild eczema). How did we treat the rash? bought Curash powder with cornstarch – didn’t really work but works on his nappy rashboiled daun peria and use the water for his bath – it works! the rash reduced after about more than 5 baths :pused the aqueous cream given by the Doctor – works on his dry skinHe also had cradle cap! We tried both coconut virgin oil and Johnson&Johnson’s baby oil (aloe vera & vit E). Put the oil after his bath, leave it on for 10mins (or less like Hubs did! He’ll just scratch Baby Iqbal’s head) then brush his hair/ head. It works like magic! This is baby milestone chart I got from Baby Center website. Let’s see how’s Baby Iqbal is progressing. Keep in mind, every baby is uni…

Cloth Diapering at Six weeks

Image
Remember this post here where I was prepared and ready to cloth diaper my baby from the day he’d come home? I am sad to update that I have failed my mission but I have learn few things from the day we began our cloth diapering journey. I felt sad everytime we put on the disposable diapers and when I look at those flats and diaper covers being unused. I hate it that we had to buy the disposables every week. Truthfully speaking, I am not a green girl but looking at the trash can full with dipes and wipes really have made me think! I first put on the flats – where I fold them like an insert, and BBH nappy cover to Baby’s bum. I smiled and thought to myself, I can definitely do this!  I was really happy looking at how his dipes now in colours and free from chemicals. Since it was my old flats, the size is perfect to the newborn size cover. I was happy experimenting with how many hours can he soaks his flats and the Flip stay dry inserts. With flats, he usually soaks within 1 hour and Flip wi…

New Resolution

Image
I hope it is not too late to wish everyone here ‘Happy New Year 2012′  Since it’s our first New Year Eve with Baby Iq, we brought him to Iman’s place in Birau. PIL kindly held a barbecue for their family to gather and enjoy the night. For the record, it was Baby Iq first car ride and we went straight to Birau (excluding to the clinic that is). It went very well as baby slept his eyes off most of the journey. Haha  Ok, back to the title. My new resolution this year among other things include to breastfeed Baby Iq as long as I can (at least for a year) and fully cloth diapering him. We did successfully during daytime on 1st Jan (Yayyy!!!) and hope that I’ll be able to continue. Also, I hope to be the best mom for him and the best wife for Iman. Insya Allah..
