Newborn and Baby Shower Gift Ideas


Baby Stuff, Mummy Stuff

Zara’s full month baby shower was the first I threw. We didn’t have one for Ayra as it was too closed to our planned wedding dinner. She did have a birthday party for her big 1. From the day a child is born, friends, colleagues and relatives will mostly bless with gifts or ang baos. […]

No washing of hair during confinement


Mummy Stuff

“Strictly no washing of hair during confinement!” my mum would tell me every time I mentioned it during pregnancy. I washes my hair daily and twice on humid days.

Bathing during confinement month after labour


Mummy Stuff

Following traditions from my grandmother’s days, I’m told not to shower for a month. Upon hearing this I screamed! After clarifying I learned that I’m allowed to shower but only once a day with a blend of herbs in boiled water. Woman after labour is at our weakest and there is much “wind” in our […]
