the melodramatic mouse is now mellomom
I didn’t expect to wean Nate. I had ideally planned to let him outgrow the need on his own naturally. If I wasn’t pregnant, I know I would still be breastfeeding. I started by reducing 1 feed at a time — he was still having 3 — when I was 6 weeks pregnant. It was [...]
Two months after Natey started taking solids, I began “making” our own snacks. Toasted bread stripes is one of the top recommended choices. It is easy to make and definitely a healthier alternative to over the counter snacks. I started with stripes but quickly improvised into bite size squares, which proved to be more of a [...]
Our Verdicts: This is our 1st box of Rafferty’s Garden since trying a sample last Nov. I bought it yesterday at Mercato Supermarket in Hartamas Shopping Complex. It comes in a box of 12 rusks for RM13.99. Although RG is not organic as compared to Bellamy’s Toothie Peg, I’m still going to give it a [...]
Our Verdicts: We bought our 1st box of Toothie Pegs last Nov and only finished the last peg yesterday itself. That’s like an average of 2 pegs (RM2.60) a month *wah* Natey seldom snacks on rusk because he looses interest very fast and off it lands on the floor. He would gnaw on the peg [...]
We are finally at this stage of researching for the “right” formula milk. Although I am still breastfeeding 3-4x and expressing 1x a day, I know my supply is quickly depleting and I need to hurry up to introduce cow’s milk to Nate before he rejects the taste totally. The boy doesn’t like liquids other [...]
Rice with Quinoa RRP: RM26.90, RM26.90 and RM22.90 Our Verdicts: Vegetable Fruits Vanilla We tried Why Not? in this order: Fruits, Vege and First Flavour (Vanilla) respectively since October last year. Nate was 8mo then. We bought our first tin of WN at Just Life in The Gardens. They allowed sampling and Natey loved both [...]
For the first 2 months of introducing new foods to Natey, he “enjoyed” everything at its purest (taste) in forms of purees. By 8mo it was time to add a little rice — we are Asians after all — and introduce meat to the menu. That’s how I started cooking porridge for him everyday. Meal [...]
This is our 13th month! For half of that time, Natey was fully breastfed before he started his solids at 6mo. For 6 months, he survived on nothing — except that few weeks of supplement *boo* — but his Mommy’s milk *beams* In the beginning 2 cells became one, he grew and fed within me [...]
Most babies and toddlers would have this some time (or not) in their diaper-clad life. Be it mild or severe, we hate it because we rather it be us than our Mini Me. Agree? But we don’t wear diapers! *ha* For 3 weeks now, the rash on Natey’s thighs and perianal area has not gone [...]
Little Bean Sterilizer & Baby Warmer NP: RM199.90, Sale Price: RM179.90 My Verdict: If you remember back in Oct 2009, when I prepared my 1st Nursery Checklist, I actually slashed this off after reading the thread in MsiaBrides. Most of the Mommies agreed that a sterilizer kit is a waste of money. Well, I beg to [...]
