#Diningout #throwback #5mo #vegetarianrestaurant Those who know me know I am no fan of pure vegetarian food, and have on occasion, scoffed at vegetarian meals (in my defence, it happened in my younger days. Sorry, Buzzy haha). I especially can’t stand the look and taste of mock meat – fake charsiew, fake chicken rolled on […]
#5mo #Feverinthefamily #BMpower! Poor Lil bubs was sick on Sunday, with fever hitting a high of 38.7℃. Thankfully though, with what I attribute to a healing mix of BM packed with powerful LEE antibodies, Koolfever and plenty of rest on daddy and mommy’s sacrificial arms, his fever went down fairly quickly to 38.4, and gradually decreased […]
#throwback #3mo bottletraining One of the biggest challenges that I faced as a breastfeeding mom, ironically had nothing to do with bf, but bottlefeeding. I was always told that baby may have nipple confusion, and not want to latch, so I insisted upon exclusive direct latching until a week before I was to return to work, […]
#throwback-3months old #bottlefeedingfail (1.5mths) #Rayis5monthsoldnow Some of you would know that I have been struggling with the issue of trying to bottlefeed Ray, since I so openly lament and share my woes about him not drinking from the bottle. It helps to spread the misery around, cushions the pain a little haha.

#4 months and 3 weeks old The little critter is now out of his crib and on my bed. He looks around the room inquisitively, hands outstretched and legs high up in the air. Finally, his gaze meets mine and immediately, bebe beams a big one at me, breaking into his toothless, gummy smile.
THE INITIAL BREASTFEEDING DAYS – ACCEPT HELP FROM NURSES AND LACTATION CONSULTANTS When I first had Ray, the initial few days in attempting to breastfeed him were so bumpy. I was in the hospital, all worn out after an excruciatingly painful labour (I’ll concede that I’m a wuss and have a low pain threshold), […]
Hi little munchkins! This was you when you first arrived in this world on 17 December 2013. Tiny and big at the same time. Such a small little babe you were then, yet, so big that it seems amazing even till now, that you managed to squish yourself in my tummy and grow, grow, grow […]
Hello hello When I was still single and childless, I used to love playing with babies (I still do, of course), but the moment they poop or spit up (milk), I would throw the babies back at their moms and scuttle away in a hurry. Gross max, no? My mom would regale me with yucky […]
