    3 Top Reasons Why It’s Time To Switch To Shampoo Bars.

    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. 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…

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.

  • Baby wipes

    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 Style with Little Roo

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…

  • Cloud Dough Recipe

    Today, Zoe asked me if we can do another batch of playdough so she can make new colors of dough but I told her we’ll make a different one today. I decided to make a cloud dough so she can experiment with different textures. She loves sensory play so much loves touching flour when we’re baking too. What is a cloud dough? The consistency of Cloud Dough can be powdery like flour, moldable and a bit like damp sand.  It is perfect for moulding, shaping, squeezing, pressing and sculpting into different shapes. And, unlike playdough, the child can disintegrate this without any effort. It can be sent back to its…

  • No Cook Play Dough Recipe

    It’s raining non stop today and Zoe requested if we can do another batch of our homemade play dough. This is our go to recipe and since then we don’t buy Play Doh anymore. Zoe hates soft, sticky and oily play doh so just adjust this recipe for you liking. But first, let me share why Zoe loves play dough: 1. It enhances her fine motor skills. Helps her hands develop strength, dexterity and control. 2. It enhances her creativity. Play dough can be anything she can imagine. 3. She loves squishing, smashing, cutting, and slicing the play dough. 4. It enhances her literacy and numeracy development. She enjoys using…
