Foodie Alert!, Restaurants/Dining

Baby’s day out at Beyond Veggie, a delicious vegetarian restaurant!

11 Jun , 2014  

#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 […]

Breastfeeding – protecting baby with BM live antibodies

30 May , 2014  

#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 […]

Bottle Review Part II + Tips to get your baby to bottlefeed!

21 May , 2014  

#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 #newborn The first night that Ray was born, he was kept in my hospital suite so I could bond with him and breastfeed him. I was very glad and happy that this was the arrangement at NUH, as I felt it was my duty and responsibility as Ray’s mom to have him spend as […]

#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.

13 Apr , 2014  

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.
