    Looking For The Perfect On The Go Snacks For Your Kids?

    Our favorite on the go snack. Zoe loves to have two-three snacks a day. Usually we bake her snacks but when we don’t have time to bake, I’m thankful for snacks readily available in the grocery. I am not that strict when it comes to sugar intake when Zoe turned 3 years old. But I make sugar her sugar intake for the day will not exceed 100 grams. Always Check The Ingredients. I always look at the ingredients list first, to make sure that it contains real, wholesome food ingredients, and that there aren’t artificial colours, flavours, or many additives or preservatives. Get to know Monte. It is a creamy…

    5 Factors To Consider When Buying Nursing Bra.

    I’ve been breastfeeding Zoe for almost 3.3 years now and we’re still going strong with no signs of weaning yet. As a first time mom who plans to breastfeed til Zoe self wean I really bought a lot of nursing bras. But sadly stopped wearing them when Zoe turned 1 year old because it’s not comfortable anymore.

They sent me two kinds of bra, nursing bra and scoop neck which are the bestsellers for me to try. 5 factors I consider when…

  • Breastfeeding In Style with Little Roo

    Last time, I post about my views regarding breastfeeding in public here. But some moms don’t have that confidence yet to breastfeed in public. And yes, I hear you mommas! Luckily, I found this local brand that sells a breastfeeding cover. Little Roo The name is too cute and catchy. Isn’t it? It is owned by Mommy Alex, a breastfeeding mom of twins. All the infinity nursing scarves are made with love as she’s the only one sewing at night. Salute to all mompreneurs like her! So let’s support locals! While feeding Zoe suddenly sneak out of the cover and told me “Mom, look Im inside you just like kangaroos!”.…

  • Breastfeeding in Public

    I always wonder why do people remain so incredibly uncomfortable with breastfeeding in public? Why does the society still seem so put off by a woman using her breasts for what they were really made for? I’ve been breastfeeding for 3 years and 2 months now. We strike anywhere and anytime when Zoe is hungry. I usually don’t have a cover since Zoe hates being covered. She keeps on lifting the cover on and off and it’s really inconvenient for me. And besides I don’t really see anything wrong from feeding my daughter especially in public so I don’t get it when people awkwardly stare at me when I feed…
