Giving baby milk at the right temperature + A Giveaway!

Before feeding we were told to ensure that the milk is not too hot for the baby. Many does the “drip-on-back-of-hand-to-test” method, or “use-my-palm-and-feel-the-bottle” method to test the temperature. Sometimes, we thought the temperature is just right, but our baby rejected and cried out loud, cause she has burned her tongue! Doesn’t the above scenario sound familiar to you? With …

Newborn and Baby Shower Gift Ideas

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.

Challenging but Fun Shoot at The Orange Studios

Before Zara popped, we had a tiring but fun session at The Orange Studios. Capturing photos of Ayra is one big challenge that I face all the time.

We love shopping! And FOX Kids & Baby is in our top 3 favorite fashion store for Ayra since she was a little baby.

Alternative Baby Changing Setup

Planning for No. 2’s arrival and to make space for her things in the house. One of the item on our shopping list is a changing table/station so that we don’t have to strain our backs going too low (changing on our bed) while changing her. A Baby Changing Unit from IKEA comes to about $150, but this will probably …

Use only the best to protect Baby’s delicate skin

What to use for laundry hasn’t been my kind of thing before Ayra arrived. I’m fortunate and lucky to be staying with my parents and they manage the household items and my mum does the laundry. I never been bothered to know what brand of detergent or fabric conditioner they use nor do I need to learn how to operate …

In search for a double stroller

With No. 2 coming soon, I’ve been shopping around and looking at what other parents are using. Every time I see someone housing two kids in a stroller, I’ll stretched my neck a little further to check out which brand and model it is.

Feeding bottle woes over with new Philips Avent Natural Bottles

I have been searching for the right milk bottles for baby since before she arrived. It was confusing at first, with so many types, brands and sizes to choose from.

After a month of planning and sourcing, Ayra’s first birthday celebration was held on 8 September with families and friends.

Preparing for Ayra’s 1st Birthday Celebration

The countdown clock has started. It’s a month and few days away from Ayra’s first birthday celebration. As we skipped her full month’s celebration, I’m planning to have a not-so-mini party for her 1st. As I was browsing through other mummy’s blog and referencing from friend’s photo albums on Facebook, the panic button is suddenly pressed. Its been 10 years …

Safe play zone for baby

At 8+ months, little Ayra was crawling fast and furious around the house and reaching out for support to lift herself to standing position. As there are many electrical stuff within easy reach in the living area, we had to constantly follow behind her when she crawls. Few occasions where she was faster than we can react and she pulled …

Safe place to play for baby below 12 months

Now that my baby is able to crawl (super fast) and learning to stand and take small steps on her own, I find it a challenge trying to keep her out of the no-go zones at home and with the limited space at my mum’s place, its even tougher to have all her toys surrounding her for her to explore. …
