    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…

    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…

    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…

  • 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!

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…
