CHOOSING MATERNITY / NURSING BRA TIPS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM | SUMMER & PEACH



Hey peeps! Welcoming a new baby is a total blessing and for the mother, she'll need a lot to adapt, especially for new mothers.  From pregnancy to giving birth to having the baby in arms, is a challenge and a new form of change. That was how I felt when I went through all of that. As many get excited to prepare for the baby, they somehow only see the big stuff such as car seats, strollers, cots and etc, but they tend to forget about their own comfort. Mothers, especially new mums, take this piece of advice and make sure you invest in comfy clothing because your body might not help while going through all of this. First of all, make sure you get the comfiest undergarments you can find because that area will change a lot. A LOT! Start buying as soon as you get pregnant because your body would change so fast without you realizing it and my main point is to get a proper bra. You can choose either to get a maternity bra or a nursing bra at once from the start. Why? Read on to know more about this topic.

REVIEW: HE OR SHE DENTAL-CARE SIPPY CUP



When your baby reaches 6 months, it's time for you took to look into sippy cups as that time you will need to start training your child to drink plain water instead of milk only. Another reason is for them to learn sucking skills and sippy cups will help them achieve that skill without putting them at risk off choking. There are a lot of sippy cups to choose from, in the market, but which type should you be looking into. That's one of the first questions that will pop in mind for every mum, I was at that spot too and heads up, it could be confusing with so many choices. So let me put an ease to that by cutting down the list to one brand you can look into, which is 'He Or She'. Yes, He or She is a brand from Taiwan that was recently launched in Malaysia providing a few types of baby bottles you can look into too. But this post is to focus on their Dental-Care Sippy Cup which is one of a kind. Read on to know why....

REVIEW: GROSMIMI STRAW BOTTLES


When Maliq was around 8 months, I started to find milk bottles again for him because I wanted to start giving formula milk to him. He's doesn't each much and I don't think I provide enough milk too, so started the formula milk journey was hard too. It took quite a long time to find a suitable one and even milk bottles played a big role too. I gave him the normal milk bottles but he didn't like it, I changed from one teat to another, he didn't want it either. I gave him cups and sippy bottles which also didn't encourage him to drink much either until I was introduced to these bottles from Grosmimi. Why? Keep on reading.

REVIEW: COBY HAUS COBY FENCE PREMIUM FOLD FENCE


Had this fence since Maliq was still crawling, and now he's already running around. When Maliq was still crawling we were still living in a tiny apartment and the kitchen was connected to the living room, so I had a huge problem controlling him at that time. On times I'm cooking a cleaning, I had to tie him in his stroller so I know he's safe, but of course, he'll be screaming and I didn't like to hear it too. So I thought of buying a baby playpen for him so he could play comfortably inside which took me a lot of time to think about. Keep on reading to know why.

WHY USE BABY LIQUID CLEANSERS | REVIEW: SLEEK BABY, BOTTLE, NIPPLE & ACCESSORIES CLEANSER



One of the many little things that I've taken extra care off since my son was born is cleanness of his daily things such as his feeding things, his toys, and even the food I cook for him to make sure he stays healthy. Liquid cleansers play a vital role in this so of course, I choose to always use liquid cleansers on mostly everything connected to him as I always worry about the unseen bacteria around him. Nowadays, we have various selections of liquid cleansers to choose from, even those that are made especially for babies which are usually safer to use. Some parents choose to use the same type of liquid cleansers for the whole household, which is an easier option than having to have separate liquid cleansers but if you're still using conventional liquid cleansers, think again if you still want to choose it for your family after reading this post. Keep on reading to understand why.

BABY STEPS BBS-3 GOAT MILK POWDER



One of the biggest challenges I've faced and still am facing now is having my son to wean off. I have come to the stage where my supply is not enough for him which I know as he constantly wants to latch all the time which is tiring for me. His cries of hunger sadden me. Adding things worse, he easily rejects food and has minimum appetite most of the time. I struggle a lot to have him eat and it worries me that he isn't getting enough nutrition especially when he doesn't get enough milk he should be. That's why I've been putting in the effort to give him additional formula milk but sadly he mostly rejects them. I've tried almost all the brands in the market yet I failed, so this time, I came to suggestions of giving another type of formula milk, so I changed to goat milk instead. Interesting how I found out how goat milk could be more beneficial for toddlers. Read on to know more on this.

WHY PARENTS SHOULD OWN A PARKLON PLAYMAT | REVIEW



Hey peeps,

I bet most of you parents have already heard of Parklon's Baby Playmat from Coby Haus Malaysia and probably most of you have it in your wishlist already. The real question is either it's worth it with such a price tag, as you can also get a nice quality fluffy carpet with the price. With such a price tag, it's reasonable to have looked for a more affordable option as most of us have a mindset that our babies are not gonna use it for that long, I was like that too until I actually owned one of Parklons Playmat. Now, after almost a year of using it, I could say that it's worth every penny so keep on reading to know why it's worth in investment from my point of view.

REVIEW: SHAPEE LAFEE NURSING BRA


Lately, I've been into trying different types of maternity bras from brands sold online. As I mentioned once before, I don't want to wear cheap bras anymore as I find they don't help to support the breast properly and when you're breastfeeding, you'll need that support. I've been breastfeeding for a year over already, and I just realized how important nursing bras play a role too just recently. But if you noticed from my recent posts on maternity bras, most of them are quite pricey. Well, today let me introduce to you a more affordable brand you can get online in Malaysia.

REVIEW: JOYLEE'S JOYKIDS NOSE CLEANER & NAIL TRIMMER FOR BABIES


One of the minor problems I faced since I had Maliq was taking care of his personal hygiene, which is when he gets mucus and when his nails grow long again. These things may seem simple but without proper care, it could be a big issue, especially when you're dealing with babies. So when I found out about Joylee's Nose Cleaner and Nail Trimmer, I just had to own each of it. Why? Because I'm such a modern mum. LOL... I'll tell you in detail if you read on.

REVIEW COMPACT CABIN SIZED STROLLER: BEBLUM MICRO


I've been dependent on strollers ever since the first day I bought my son out after my confinement. Probably that's why I own a few strollers now as I use strollers according to it's best functions but the strollers that are always in my car trunk are from Beblum. LOL... No kidding, I do carry around 2 strollers and my husband doesn't seem to mind as well. Usually, he'll start making a fuss that his car trunk is full bla bla bla... but he seems fine with it for this. Our main stroller that is a must in the trunk is the Beblum Navi, we use this most of the time, especially when we go to malls as its features are just very helpful. Most probably because of it's reclinable seating, Maliq could sleep longer in there. The other stroller we recently just had is Beblum Micro, which is a compact cabin-sized stroller perfect for travel and sudden need. Why do we carry this stroller around to?

REVIEW: MAMAWAY SECOND SKIN SEAMLESS MATERNITY & NURSING BRA IN STRIPES


When it comes to bras, before I got married I only hunted down branded bras on clearance sales as most of you know I'm a hunter for savings. The reason why I looked for branded bras before as it provides the most comfort and it lasts long too. During my study days, I used to by cheap ones but it couldn't last long as I have the habit to just throw them in the washing machine. When I got pregnant, I didn't know where I should look for branded nursing bras since I don't really see it being displayed in shopping malls. So I just chose the easiest option and bought cheap bras online, at first it was okay but after a while, I noticed that these bras don't really give the support I needed.

REVIEW: SUMMER & PEACH AYLA LUXURY LACE AND HANDSFREE PUMPING BRA


The biggest mistake I ever made when I accepted pregnancy and after I gave birth was giving up on the hidden things that kept me feeling good. Today's post is a little more for grown-up ladies especially for mothers or new mothers to embrace our body no matter how much has changed after the years. Before I got married, undergarments were one of the things I didn't mind to splurge on because comfortability and maintaining shape was important for a lady. Don't you agree? But once I had to hunt for nursing bras, I just gave up on these lovely things because I couldn't find them in the mall and I didn't do much research too. Actually, if you do a bit of digging, you'll find that there are actually plenty of options from various brands and Summer & Peach is one of them. Read on to know why you should look into this brand.

REVIEW KOOPERS LAVOLTA CAR SEAT (BELT) AN AFFORDABLE OPTION


Once you have a baby, your main aim is to always have them protected and living in this modern era, car seats have become essential for their safety. If I'm not mistaken, starting next year, our government will be enforcing the use of car seats for babies and toddlers in cars just like as we have to wear our seatbelts. It's a good thing too as some may still not see the importance of a child's safety as our old folks didn't use these back in the days and some may not even want to splurge on something that is thought as not necessary enough to them. Don't be shocked as some parents I know still have this kind of mentality and yes it angers me too. Actually, you don't really have to spend so much on a car seat if you know which car seat you should aim for. Let me tell you about my experience with this and why I chose a car seat from Koopers.

REVIEW: EDHOLM UILENIUS' SCANDINAVIAN PATTERN COLLECTION (EU SPC) BABY CARRIER


One of the few things I regret is not using baby carriers early since Maliq was a newborn, I've known about the goodness of baby carriers for quite a while even before I gave birth to Maliq. Babies especially newborns feel the comfort from the mother's chest, so having them wrapped up to us helps the calm down and that was one of the ways that I was able to do house chores in the early days, by putting him in a carrier. Yes, I did own a carrier in his early days but I gave up using it after a few tries as I felt uncomfortable and so was my son by the looks of it. It didn't quite hold in the right position so I always needed to be aware while using it, so I just gave up and stored it away, until I felt like I had to use it again, so only that time that it made sense to me, that carriers are like strollers, you need to invest on a good one if you're planning to use it long time. Keep on reading to know why I say so...

REVIEW: PHILIPS AVENT ESSENTIAL BABY FOOD MAKER


When Maliq turned 6 months, I was super excited to start his weaning journey, I had so much planned for him but when the time came, I only realised that I wasn't ready for it. Why? My plan was to make him fresh food every day but turns out that I have a battle with time. Even though I'm a sit at home mum, I seem to be always busy and I don't even have time to watch my favourite drama. LOL... Anyways... before we welcomed the Philip's Avent Baby Food Maker, I was cooking Maliqs' meals on the stove which was quite the hassle, it's like a game changer when I started to use a baby food maker instead. Why? Keep on reading to know...

AN AFFORDABLE STROLLER OPTION | REVIEW BEBLUM'S NAVI STROLLER


Maliq is 7 months already and he pretty much doesn't wanna lay still when we stroll around anymore. He's becoming more active these days and gets really excited when we bring him out which causes him to scream out loud if we lay him down in a new adventure. This gave us no choice but to look for another stroller option as the one we currently have isn't suitable for him anymore. If you've been following me on social media, you'll know that I recently changed his stroller into Beblum's Navi Stroller and have been using it for a month over now and many have questioned if it's a good one since the brand is not among the ones we are used to hearing. Well here's my review on it, keep on reading for more deets!

lt's mostly every mothers dream to give the best to their child and it usually starts with feeding. We all now are aware of how good mothers milk is to our baby.

PIGEONS DISNEY SOFT TOUCH NURSING BOTTLE & CALMING SOOTHER


When you think about babies, the first thing that comes to mind is milk bottles. Well for me it is. It's because every baby will own a milk bottle of their own which will be carried around everywhere even though they are breastfed. When I knew I was pregnant, the first thing I wanted to look for was indeed milk bottles but it turns out that was the very last thing I got. That's because there were so many good brands on the market that I had a hard time to choose which was the best. In the end, I ended up with Pigeon's Nursing Bottle which was given to me for a review and after testing out this bottle, here is what I have to say. Keep on reading if you wanna know more.

REVIEW: PIGEONS NEWBORN PURE SKINCARE SERIES



I'm so thankful that I've prepared this early because once the baby was out I surely had no time to go shopping or even studying what is the best for the baby, as you know first-time mothers are mostly clueless. Even though the products were given to me for a review but I still made sure I knew whats going to be used on my baby and of course hearing the name of a familiar brand makes you already 50% sure that the product could be trusted. Well for me though, I'm not sure about you but PIGEON has surely been one of the trusted brands here we have in Malaysia. Keep on reading to know why I believe so.
