This week has been an emotional rollercoaster. I’m over-joyed because Ayden is fully diaperless at home and also at the playground. There has been no accident for the entire week. He is able to inform me should he need to take a leak or a dump. He even suggested to go shopping without his diapers but I am not ready for that. I can’t imagine the stress of running to the loo every single hour. […]
You know a toddler is still breastfeeding (or was breastfed) when the first thing that comes out of his mouth when you bring him to the lingerie department is ….. Read on. I needed to buy a new nursing bra or maybe just a new bra so I handed the boys over to Darling and went to the lingerie department alone. Ayden kept asking for me so Darling brought him over but the moment he […]
One of my greatest pet peeves as a mother is when people see my toddler and start going, “Oh he’s so skinny!” I got that with Ethan and now history repeats with Ayden. This was Ethan @ 14 months old This is Ayden at almost 14 months old. Both Ethan and Ayden were born small but caught up and tripled their birth weight in no time. They have chubby cheeks as a baby but people […]
I did not manage to breastfeed Ethan for more than 3 months. By the time he was 4 months old, I fell sick, my supply dropped and I gradually weaned him off. I blame it on my lack of knowledge and support back then. I feel much regret each time I think about it. Every time he gets sick, I’ll blame myself for not trying harder to breastfeed him. With Ayden, I was very determine […]
When it comes to titty (either of two soft fleshy milk-secreting glandular organs on the chest of a woman) you just cant fool them. They know the real ones from the many ‘commercialised’ ones out there. I gave Ayden a new toy to play with yesterday and he suckled on it thinking they are my titties but he soon came to his senses…
Totally! Today I’m going to touch on the subject of baby changing and nursing room. By ‘baby changing’ I don’t mean you go in there to switch babies! Get a grip of yourself, no matter how cute the baby on the next changing table is, you are NOT allowed to trade babies! Now that I’ve made that clear, let me start my story. I was in a mall last weekend when a lady made a big […]
Since the arrival of Ayden, I don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen anymore but I can’t stand eating out all the time so I try my best to prepare something convenient yet nutritious – soup. I am also fully breastfeeding Ayden so soup is one of the major milk booster for me. Today’s soup is the simplest of the lot – Chinese Black Bean with Red Dates Chicken Soup. A popular soup […]
Ethan’s teacher always complains that he is always late for school. We rush and rush every morning to make sure he is early but he will still be late. Why? Because he insists to feed his little brother first before heading out… How? I just have to let him be. After all, it’s only kindy and brotherly love is way more important <3 Because of this also every morning I have to rush to pump […]
So this picture from Time.com sparks debate all over the world. She doesn’t look like a loving and caring mother breastfeeding her child they say.. What about the above? Loving enough? (Photo: Time.com) I’ve seen with my own eyes a mother breastfeeding her son who is almost as tall as her in IKEA. The mother is as petite as me for your information. People all over were staring at her like she have just committed […]
