Charley’s solids – Puréed Pumpkin

We’ve started Charley on her first solids few days before she’s officially six months old and she’s definitely not a big fan of eating…as yet! Unlike most parents, I’ve decided to go with vegetables first, fruits then poultry and cereal. Cereal is a staple item so she’s definitely going to have to eat that sooner or later but I’m going with vegetables first because it’s not the yummiest food to a kiddo (IMO) and I want her to develop her […]

Halfway to 1.

In another few weeks dear little Charley will be turning 6 months old. 6 months old brings a totally new set of spendings required to fill this little one up. Getting this post idea from Mummy Ruth, here’s what we have/ will be prepping for Charley: High Chair: I spotted the ikea baby highchair a couple of months ago and I told myself I needed to get it! It cost between $25-$109 depending on the type you fancy and my […]

My purchase at Le Petit Society

The other day I was hoping to win the voucher giveaway from Le Petit Society but booya, I didn’t get it! Congrats to the lucky winner. Also, I was a little upset not being able to take advantage of the little sale they have extended to their shoppers over the Christmas period since I’ve already done my purchases.. But this shall pass because I like shopping at their site! So my parcel arrived at my doorstep: The parcel was wrapped […]

This is only Temporary.

I’ve recently came across an article where a writer/mum writes about the these four words: This is only Temporary; which speaks about the happiness and depressions of raising a baby. Being a new mum (I considered myself fairly new since baby Charley is 4.5 months old), I can tell you that this is not an easy job. Being a SAHM is not easy, yes.. given the luxury not to miss any milestones the little one hits is pure joy but […]

A recent purchase

I’ve stumbled upon Le Petit Society and made some purchases after much consideration. As you know, I’m currently a SAHM and I would prefer to spend my money wisely..then again, I could never resist good buys and shopping for the little one! What I love about this site is that they offer free delivery in Asia, even though their selection is not a lot. I would have thought that their founders are from Hongkong given the currency stated on the […]

Help! The milk is on my tongue!

Just showing off her milk tongue to the rest of the world! Every morning during bath time, we would use the soft little square cloth to wipe her tongue in circles to help clean it as much as we can. Sometimes we use the cleaning wipes that fits onto our fingers that we purchased from Mothercare, but I’d only use it alternatively. One, its too costly. Two, its banana flavored and contains xylitol. Not too comfy to use it too […]

Let’s boogie tonight?

Poor baby. Charley was being whiny and fussy, constantly wanted to be held to sleep (okay maybe our fault for carrying her too much during confinement but who could resist isn’t it?) and snorting. Wait a minute, snorting? My poor baby was having a bout of nose blocked and she’s not having it easy. Charley has been finding it tough to breathe recently. Initially I shrug bit off (Not being irresponsible since I was monitoring her) because babies usually sneeze […]

First-Time Parents

I have been so held up with taking care of Charley that I simply have close to zilch energy to blog recently. Forgive the hiatus. So what have been we been up to? Many times people wonder how could one be so busy taking care of baby. Shouldn’t bonding time be free and easy? Not quite so. I could tell you most of my time is taken up feeding and burping baby, trying to coax her to sleep, washing bottles […]

The Pediatrician

When Charley was born, she was directed to a pediatrician (PD) recommended under my gynae. Me and the hubs didn’t really went to google much about this PD. Or we did, and the Internet has very little info about her. Our PD is Dr. Ratna Sridjaja. You can see Charley doing ‘breakdancing’ as Dr. Ratna does the routine checkup for her, haha! If you’re heading towards Gleneagles to deliver your baby, I’m highly recommending her to be your PD. Dr. […]
