Moluk Oogi is My Savior During Meal Times with Arissa

Moluk Oogi is my saviour during meal times with my baby girl. I really mean it. Once Arissa reached 6 months old, she was strong enough to sit up. So, during meal times (especially when we eat out – which is OFTEN), she will be seated on the baby chair.

She could sit still for up to about 6-7 minutes before she starts making noise. I have tried several methods to keep her company but I thank goodness for this person called Alex Hochstrasser. He has created Moluk toys and Moluk Oogi is our savior!

Baby’s First Food – Puree or BLW

We started on our baby’s first food when Arissa turned 6 months old. Her first solid food was a puree. The first thing I did was google and download some baby recipe application on my mobile.  Then I asked some mommy friends to get some ideas. Finally, I bought 2 avocados and blend them into puree for my baby girl. Her verdict: SHE LOVES IT!

So, some say baby first foods should be puree but some say BLW is the way to go. What is BLW? It stands for Baby-Led Weaning which is a method of adding complementary foods to a baby’s diet of breastmilk or formula. It is a method of food progression and BLW facilitates the development of age appropriate oral motor control while maintaining eating as a positive, interactive experience. Basically the same type of food but without blending it.

So the big question mark is which did I follow? Puree or BLW?

Our Hanil UV Sterilizer – New Toy for the Family

I was recently introduced to Hanil UV Sterilizer by an ex-colleague. Then I saw Belinda Chee and Yasmin Hani’s posts on instagram featuring Hanil UV Sterilizer too. I wondered what it is all about and found out that this is a newly introduced product in Malaysia. They brought Hanil UV Sterilizer from Korea to Malaysia in December 2016! Yeay, you know how I love everything Korean. So, I couldn’t wait to get myself one!

Finally got in touch with Hanil in Malaysia and got 1 unit for the house. Most people told me “After baby turn 6 months old, no need to sterilize already” but I am getting it not just to sterilize the bottles. It is more than a bottle sterilizer, I am actually getting it for the family. We got a  bottle steam sterilizer from our friends as baby shower gift which was really useful. So why am I still getting a UV Sterilizer? I’ll tell you why …

No Such Thing As A Sick Mommy

This week, Arissa caught the bug (whether from daycare or just the weather). Right after that, my husband and I had flu and sore throat. Even my sister-in-law caught the bug from Arissa after she visited us over the weekend. It sucks to be sick!

Your baby can be unwell but you cannot. It doesn’t matter even if you are, nothing changes. No such thing as a rest day for the mommy. You just suck it in, wipe your sweat away and continue what you do as usual – happy mommy. Good thing there is such a thing called Medical Leave at work. Take a break from work, but not from your baby.
