  • 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…

    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. So I told myself next time I’ll invest and pick nursing bra wisely. Luckily, I found Coobie Bras. They have all types of bra not just nursing bra. 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…

    Biodegradable Baby Wipes by BCare Review

    To be honest, I am not a fan of wipes. Why? Because Zoe have a super sensitive skin and using wipes usually develops rashes and trigger her allergies. I know for a lot of moms, they can’t go out without having one. So when I found out about Bcare Bamboo Wipes I was so intrigued. BCare Bamboo Wipes claims: 1. Soft as cotton but more absorbent. Extra thick and wonderfully soft. No wet and sticky feeling will be left on your baby’s skin because these wipes absorb 40% more moisture compared to cotton. 2. It has natural antibacterial. The wipes are bacteria-fighting by mature, thanks to bamboo ‘kun’ which is…

  • 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…

  • Life with ZG ❤

    Life’s detours often turn out to be life’s most beautiful moments. My pregnancy may have been a bit of a surprise, unexpected and something that happened faster than I thought. Something I weren’t sure if I was ready for but what’s not a surprise is how much I wanted my daughter, Zoe. I was a solo mom since my pregnancy. And being the only person responsible for my daughter’s health and wellbeing is not exactly how I had imagined my life panning out. But I chose this path, and I know I’m rocking it. Being a parent is a lifelong commitment. It’s not like training for a marathon, where you…
