  • Breastfeeding

    Breastfeeding my 3 years old daughter

    Yes, Zoe is 3.7 years old and still exclusively breastfed. I know, breastfeeding this long might not for everyone. I totally get that. And I am not forcing anyone who wasn’t comfortable to do extended breastfeeding. So I hope the same goes to all the people who shames me for choosing to breastfeed Zoe until she self wean. We are breastfeeding anytime and anywhere since birth til now. Because for me, it is natural, it is love and it’s our bonding. Everytime she sees me sitting, it’s always an opportunity to latch. Sometimes for only 30 seconds, sometimes til she fell asleep. She’s still unli latch at night and that’s…

    For the last 3 months, I started ditching commercial shampoo and conditioner. Because I realized, it’s about time to switch to sustainable lifestyle. One way to help protect Mother Earth is by reducing our wastes and leaving no trace of our carbon footprints. And I am so happy there are too many local brands offering shampoo bars and have been trying to do their part by having zero packaging for their products as well.   Why switch to Shampoo Bar? 1. They are package free. One of the main reason why I switch to shampoo bars is because  they are much better for the environment than their bottled counterparts. I almost…

    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.

  • unplugged kid

    Raising an unplugged kid in this tech-savvy generation.

    Not too long ago, children used to play outside all day, playing sports, riding bikes and engaging in creative play that didn’t require expensive gadgets or parental supervision. But unfortunately, today, this is far from the case. Today, it’s not uncommon to see toddlers and preschoolers carrying around an iPad or any gadgets.  So choosing to raise an unplugged kid in this tech savvy generation is not really that easy but it’s so worth it. Screens put everything on the table so that there is nothing to uncover. But when we get out of our children’s way and let them be bored they come up with all sorts of exciting things…

    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…
