Baby A is 10+ months old now. I have a few friends who recently gave birth. When I visited them, it reminded me of Baby A when she was born. Although I didn’t have a tough first 30 days (because I had a great confinement lady), I am very sure it isn’t easy for any first time parents. So, here are my top tips after giving birth to help make your first month easier! (hopefully)

Breastpump For Working Moms, Why I Chose speCtra M1

My love for anything Korean do not stop at BigBang! I am so sad that the (second) love of my life has enlisted to join the army. Bye bye T.O.P 씨 , see you in another 2 years? 

This came to me as I was reading about T.O.P being enlisted while pumping milk in the office. As I said, my love for anything Korean will never end. Even the breastpump that I am currently using is made in Korea – speCtra M1.

First Time Taking Flight With A Baby

It is always not advisable to travel by road during festive season. The traffic can be so bad that you can be stuck for 8 hours traveling from KL to Alor Setar!

Hence, this lunar new year, we decided to travel by air with our 6-month old baby. We chose Malindo Air as it was the most cost-effective decision in terms of the airfare and airport location.  It would be her first time ever on a flight and we were nervous as hell on how she would be on the plane!

My Breastfeeding Journey Started in Pantai Hospital KL

Breastfeeding can be easy to some and not so easy for others

For me, I am one of the lucky ones because Arissa was incredible from the very beginning. After the procedure, I was still in the recovery room for almost 1.5hours (mind you that it is no fun at all – I was freezing and trembling and couldn’t feel my legs) and once I was back in the ward, the nurse brought Arissa to me for the first time for skin-to-skin contact. The nurse told me 10 minutes for skin-to-skin contact and later she will come in again to position Arissa for breastfeeding.

The moment I placed Arissa on my shoulder, she immediately found her way to my breast and the next thing I know, she already started sucking my nipple and looking for milk!!
