tommorow lawatan ke parlimen...

Tuesday, June 8, 2010


Hik hik.. because of 'this' i couldn't sleep well for almost 2 weeks. I got head over heels in love with this beauty. On 30th May 2010, finally my QZ is the proud owner of it. Tadaaa...

After doing a LOT of research on travel system, finally this is my choice. Quinny Zapp in Rebel Red + Maxi Cosi CabrioFix in Coloured Snow 2010. The best thing was, i've got it for a great deal at Planete Enfant / Mamours (Mid Valley). RM1,599.00 ( + RM150 voucher), Free Mamours Membership for life and most important warranty for a year from both Manufacturer & Distributor. :)

Zapp comes with matching travel bag (yummy red ;D), rain cover & sun shade.

So, with the voucher i've got a Shopping basket for Zapp coz it doesn't come together with it. Need to buy separately at RM119.00 (from my survey , some are selling it at RM155!!) But, it's Out of Stock so i need to wait till the next shipment somewhere in July. The balance, found a cute lil toy from playgro to hang on the Cabriofix. Oh ya, prior to that, Cabriofix had one piece left when i got it. The sales person (Bobo) was kind enough to reserve for me and also got me Zapp in Rebel Red all the way from Mamours One Utama. haha...I felt lucky!

Once i reached Mamours, Bobo showed me the Coloured Snow Cabriofix which was lovely (i was skeptical about the colour at first but hey. it's the latest 2010 model - sure cun one!) And next he assembles zapp...grrr sgt best!

Alala..tak sempat nak upload gambor byk2 - time's up. Will update later ;)

Babywearing dah jadi my new craze plak skang.. Dulu2 bibik dah lama guna kain batik gendong baby but oleh kerana ianya macam tak berapa 'cun' dan agak rumit nak guna maka tak diberi perhatian sgt lah. Since BW pun dah mainstream skrg ni so i pun nk share lah my photos of BW using RS that i've bought from Jumpsacbaby. It's called DIVA. There are lots of cun-cun designs to choose.. After this nak try Pouch Slings plak..not to forget MT's or SSC's.. Best lah baby gears nowadays ekk..

This is the DIVA..:)

Wish list :)

This one is the pouch yg i ske... From Apootaern

Ni pun from Apootaern. Black rose + Fuchsia.. sgt cunzz

Oh ya, there are benefits of BW.

The benefits

1. Sling babies cry less. Parents in my practice commonly report, "As long as I wear her, she`s content!" Parents of fussy babies who try babywearing relate that their babies seem to forget to fuss..

2. Sling babies learn more. If infants spend less time crying and fussing, what do they do with the free time? They learn! Sling babies spend more time in the state of quiet alertness . This is the behavioral state in which an infant is most content and best able to interact with his environment. It may be called the optimal state of learning for a baby. Researchers have also reported that carried babies show enhanced visual and auditory alertness.

3.. Sling babies are more organized. It`s easier to understand babywearing when you think of a baby`s gestation as lasting eighteen months – nine months inside the womb and at least nine more months outside. The womb environment automatically regulates baby`s systems. Birth temporarily disrupts this organization. The more quickly, however, baby gets outside help with organizing these systems, the more easily he adapts to the puzzle of life outside the womb. By extending the womb experience, the babywearing mother (and father) provides an external regulating system that balances the irregular and disorganized tendencies of the baby. Picture how these regulating systems work. Mother`s rhythmic walk, for example, (which baby has been feeling for nine months) reminds baby of the womb experience. This familiar rhythm, imprinted on baby`s mind in the womb, now reappears in the "outside womb" and calms baby. As baby places her ear against her mother`s chest, mother`s heartbeat, beautifully regular and familiar, reminds baby of the sounds of the womb.. Babywearing "reminds" the baby of and continues the motion and balance he enjoyed in the womb.

4. Sling babies get "humanized" earlier. Another reason that babywearing enhances learning is that baby is intimately involved in the caregiver`s world. Baby sees what mother or father sees, hears what they hear, and in some ways feels what they feel. Carried babies become more aware of their parents` faces, walking rhythms, and scents. Baby becomes aware of, and learns from, all the subtle facial expressions, body language, voice inflections and tones, breathing patterns, and emotions of the caregiver. A parent will relate to the baby a lot more often, because baby is sitting right under her nose. Proximity increases interaction, and baby can constantly be learning how to be human. Carried babies are intimately involved in their parents` world because they participate in what mother and father are doing. A baby worn while a parent washes dishes, for example, hears, smells, sees, and experiences in depth the adult world. He is more exposed to and involved in what is going on around him. Baby learns much in the arms of a busy person.

5. Sling babies are smarter. Environmental experiences stimulate nerves to branch out and connect with other nerves, which helps the brain grow and develop. Babywearing helps the infant`s developing brain make the right connections. Because baby is intimately involved in the mother and father`s world, she is exposed to, and participates in, the environmental stimuli that mother selects and is protected from those stimuli that bombard or overload her developing nervous system. She so intimately participates in what mother is doing that her developing brain stores a myriad of experiences, called patterns of behavior. These experiences can be thought of as thousands of tiny short-run movies that are filed in the infant`s neurological library to be rerun when baby is exposed to a similar situation that reminds her of the making of the original "movie." For example, mothers often tell me, "As soon as I pick up the sling and put it on, my baby lights up and raises his arms as if in anticipation that he will soon be in my arms and in my world."
I have noticed that sling babies seem more attentive, clicking into adult conversations as if they were part of it. Babywearing enhances speech development. He learns a valuable speech lesson – the ability to listen.

The Wonders of BF

Nak hapdet pasal BF. Alhamdulillah this time i ade semangat untuk exclusively BF my LO. Dah start wat stock on the 3rd week of confinement, agak lambat start becoz baru belajar camne nak store EBM. I bought a book on BF and it was really useful, and of course wit the help of my lovely frens yang sudi memberi tips2 kejayaan mereka..wahhhh :)

So first i started with a battery operated pump. It was Pureen's. My review? it's ok once you've get used to it. But dunno why, now 2 months using it, it seems the suction not strong enuff, susu tak kuar pulak. Change the battery with a heavy duty bateri lagi but hmm.. dunno lah wat to do with it..But luckily, i've bought a backup pump few days before back to work. I bought a manual pump since the Pureen's was a bit noisy..heehee..tak ble bawak masuk majlis lar..
One session of pumping can get maximum 5oz. But usually 3.5oz / 4oz jer. Kena usaha gigih lagi ni..:) Maybe need to upgrade pump lah..ahakss..Maybe PISA or Freestyle.. wahh.. kalo tak pun swing pun ok.. But we'll see how dulu, if i can do it for at least 3 months then maybe i'll consider getting one of those pumps..huh banyak nye 'maybe'.

Got great deals from Littlewhiz ;)

My new handbag..every where i go, these are my essentials bag falls third!

See, 4oz jer lah...

I Love Your SMILE :)
