Attachment Parenting

When I first heard/ saw the word attachment parenting, I thought to myself that I am actually doing it. We are doing it. Because mom would just say "dibadan-badan jua Iqbal ani" and few other lines which mean the same thing. I just love to have him close to me. Close to us. After all this is probably the only time we can be this close.

I have not research or read further on attachment parenting. Then I came across this (shared by DDLS on Facebook) and it caught my interest.

Based on her paradox, Alhamdulillah I am still breastfeeding Baby Iqbal. Coming to 6 months now. We are definitely co-sleeping at night. When we go out, I do not put him in a stroller, just hold him and when I'm 'tired', my husband, parents and siblings would be gladly to take him from me - I don't use babywearing but this counts right? I am still trying to master taking his cues and giving prompt response to his cries because at times I can't figure out his needs. I am no perfect mother, but trying to be the best I can for him. Sometimes I feel frustrated and in need of the alone-me-time and usually I'll ended up missing Baby Iqbal. Sad! Lastly, I am still working on the gentle discipline, so far his understanding is limited. Hehe

Attachment parenting is easy. I mean its the simplest form of parenting. It does not cost so much. Breastfeeding is almost free (some need to buy vitamins and booster to maintain the supply. But the truth is, as long as there is demand the supply will always available. For most people.) I do not like to hear Baby Iqbal cry most of the times and sometimes he will just scream to get attention which I do not mind. I need enough sleep though because if not, I will be grumpier than Baby Iqbal. Then again enough sleep does not mean I want Baby Iqbal to sleep throughout the night nor I am. I'll be worried sick about him. I know he'll either cry or continue sleeping in hunger (and my thought is always the latter!).

Parenthood is not easy and not difficult too. It is hardwork and really worth it at the same time. There is so much thing going on. There are time and sleep to sacrifice, financial to think about wisely especially when only one parent is working trying to get all the endless needs and wants, your parents hoping that you'll get a job soon to help the family's financial. Does that sound familiar? Well yes, hello lifeeee!!! :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…
