Baby Feeding

Baby Iqbal will turns 6 months next month and we're excited that we are going to start Baby Iqbal with solid food. We know that he is ready because he keeps on grabbing our food and glass these days. Hehe ;) I have been reading about starting solid food and it's exciting! We have this facebook group called "First food for our Little Angels" and I must say, everyone is very helpful. :D

I'm going to share the important signs parents should notice before starting solid food, includes
  • Head control - Yes, Baby can keep his head steady and upright position
  • Losing the "extrusion reflex" - Yes, Baby has stop pushing food out of his mouth
  • Sitting well when supported - Yes, Baby can do this alright
  • Chewing motions - Definitely yes. I caught him doing this many times already. As if he is eating!
  • Significant weight gain - Baby doubles his weight already ;)
  • Growing appetite - Oh boy! Baby definitely has this for a while now
  • Curiosity about what you're eating - Hehehe.. He licks on apples, avocado, rice, sweet potato already ;) *we only give him less than a teaspoon. Just for him to taste*

This also means that we get to shop for things that we need to prepare him for solid food. *Yay!!!* For Baby's bowl and sippy cups, I have been eyeing on the Tommee Tippee brand. I also learned that I am going to need a blender and steamer to prepare my Baby's food. For these, I have not decided between Beaba Babycook or Avent combined Steamer and Blender. I'm still doing the pros and cons and so far, Avent is at the top. I might also need a freezer tray, in case I make a large batch of puree food. I'm not sure whether to buy Beaba or Tommee Tippee but I like TT because its an individual pots instead of a large tray. Hmm~ It's obvious isn't it? Pffftt!

I just love Tommee Tippee. They are really cute and most important, Baby Iqbal loves it! Remember the TT Closer to Nature Sterilisation and Feeding set I bought when I was pregnant? It is really worth it every dollar even though we have not use all of them. Hehe.. The set consists of
  • an electric steam sterilizer
  • a bottle warmer
  • 4 x 260ml bottles
  • 4 x 150ml bottles
  • 2 x thermal travel bag
  • 2 x medium flow teats
  • 6 x milk powder dispenser
  • 1 x bottle brush
  • 1 x tongs
  • 1 x pure soother
And so far, we have only been using bottle warmer, all 150ml bottles, occasionally using the thermal bags and bottle brush for washing. Baby Iqbal still drinks 70-100ml hence we're still using the small bottles. We tried giving EBM using Medela but he does not like it.

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…
