One month of Cloth Diapering

Yay! Alhamdulillah :D

I have managed to cloth diaper Baby Iqbal for a month now. From buying 6 packs to 4 packs to 2 packs of disposable in a month. I am determined to make it into 1 pack and then, to ZERO. :D

So far, I've managed to cloth diaper Baby Iqbal throughout the day when we are home (which is everyday except Sunday when we are at my in-laws' place). Baby Iqbal has outgrew his newborn stash and currently, we are using the Flip diapers and occasionally the other diapers I recently have bought.

We began with 3 Flip covers and 4 inserts and now, we have 6 covers and 15 inserts. Baby Iqbal usually uses 2-3 covers daily, 6-8 inserts as we use them until almost midnight - his last diaper change. I wash the cloth diapers daily (and sometimes my dad will help as he cannot stand seeing the inserts in the pail). *Thank you Dad but really, you shouldn't have*

It is important (at least for me!) to have a sufficient stash so I can rotate the usage to make sure that these investment will last long. After all, one of the benefits of using cloth diaper is to save money. So it is good if we can use these diapers for multiple babies - well, 2 babies at least or 3 babies if you have lots of stash to rotate and keep them in a good condition.

That being said, YES I have increased my (read, Baby Iqbal) cloth diapers stash since we began. I have added few other cloth diapers as well to try their fit and absorbency. Our current stash consists of
  • 6 Flip covers including Twilight, Grasshopper, Butternut, Moonbeam, Clementine and Ribbit! with 15 stay dry inserts *wink*
  • 1 BumGenius! Freetime AIO - love the Albert print!
  • 1 BumGenius! 4.0 - bought the artist series, Eiffel Tower as they are discontinuing the prints
  • 1+1 Charlie Banana - gotta love the royal blue colour! Just bought a red colour :p
  • 1 Bamboolite AI2 Regular - another black with numbers print still on its way hehe
  • 2 Autumnz - in baby blue and green colours :)

As I wanted to start cloth diapering Baby Iqbal for nighttime, I have also bought Bamboolite foldover inserts so I can put them in the Autumnz diapers. Received a good review about it from Rozi. Although few cloth diapering mom here actually use Flip and double the inserts or use the LoopyDo or SuperDo for nighttime diapering. As Baby Iqbal is still small, I do not want his diapers to be bulky. I hope the foldover inserts will not be really bulky for him.

I am looking for other options for ease of use and convenience especially when we go out and about (both short and long trips). Flip is definitely my go to diaper when we are at home during the day. But at night, I'd put him in pocket diapers or AIO. Now I am contemplating whether to buy more pockets or more AIOs. This will be for another post as I have lots to ramble. *wink*

Lets keep going! *big grins* ;)

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…
