Now you can have dates in your baby’s diet too

My husband has been strongly encouraging the family to consume dates (fruit) daily as it is a very good source of nutrients and dietary supplement. He would buy and store the dried date fruits at home for us to enjoy. We have not tried feeding any of these dried dates to Zara yet afraid she might not be able to …

Fruity Goodness for the Kids

Ayra is a very picky eater. She prefers the unhealthy snacks like chips, cookies, fried crispy stuff and sweet drinks. I blame us adults for giving in to her requests for food, also because she doesn’t want to eat the proper meals we’ve been trying every day since she was 6 months young. When we received a set of fruity …

Hello Baby No. 2

Drafting of this post started on 15 February 2013 and published only now cause I needed to be sure no. 2 is ready to be revealed. Sometime last year, we decided it is time to give Ayra a younger sibling. It is either now or never. My plan is to get the child bearing part of my life settled and …

This not only help me remember when was the last feed and how much baby consumes, it also help me monitor and understand baby’s needs and growth. The diary …

Post natal massage at home

Post-natal massages are the best relaxation a mum should get during confinement. It helps release tension in the muscles and allow mum to take a little time-off for some “me” time. I only started researching for masseur a month before labour. Almost though I’ll not be able to find a good one. Was recommended to a few via Twitter and …

No washing of hair during confinement

“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. The longest I can tolerate is three days without wash and that’s after a good scrap and treatment at the hair salon when I rebound my hair. First week of confinement …

Cries which could have been avoided

Just because the young doctor at Sengkang Singhealth thought he saw some white spots in my eyes, I had to go through a day of emotional and physical trauma at NUH. At my second visit to SK Singhealth I was seen by a male doctor who seemed rather nervous during the routine checks. He wanted to check my eyes but …
