Freemie 

Freemie, accoding to the website – is not compatible with all types of pumps which include Medela FS. However, I still want to give a try. Thank god, my Freemie (Medela Kit) and backflow protector works well.

My review on Freemie and Medela FS.

How to connect my Medela FS to Freemie?

This picture shows how Medela FS is being connected to the Freemie. As you can see, it use back the same tube and merely attach it to the backflow protector and then to the Freemie tube.

You can purchase either Avent or Spectra brand. Mine is Spectra that cost me around MYR40.

Must I buy backflow protector?

No. A lot mummy say they are ok without but I am afraid of backflow so I just buy in case. My experience tell me that when i bend over nearer to my monitor, I tend to have backflow so…

Groupon M Square Salon review – 2015 new year hair do for breastfeeding mum (it is ammonia free hair colouring!)

PS: Give my new community blog support at Miss2MrsChic.blogspot.com

Chinese New Year is coming and my favorite salon is fully booked. Well, decided to give Groupon a shot to see if there’s any good deal of the day to give my hair a little love :p Decided to give M Square Salon a try because (i) not bad review thus far (ii) use ammonia free product (good/better for breastfeeding mother) and (iii) it is new!

Breastfeeding mother like me often ask, is it safe to do chemical hair services while we BF? Will the ammonia pass thru my BM? Well,experiences mother say it is actually safe to do that, you may refer herehere and here! Even research say it is fine but then again it is up to you, read more here!

Anyway, if you are a little sceptical like me (or we call ourself the kiasi mummy) then opt for organic or ammonia free chemical service -lah (ok my hubby say i am just try to console myself anyhow)

Who don’t want to be pretty during CNY?!

My review on M Square Salon.

The shop is newly open in November 2014. They have two outlets; Puchong and Klang respectively. Puchong outlet have 3 stylist and 2 assistant (also a lovely receptionist). It is located upstairs of a coffee shop which is corner, easily spotted when you drive nearby. They are able to accommodate 6 customers at the same time, 2 VIP in another room plus a comfortable area for the mani and pedicure.

My verdict: Location is easily accessible but located above coffee shop is a little bit not my thing. Imagine walking out smelling good and pass by the chicken wing barbecue uncle.

My hair coloring. I bought voucher which entitle me to do a hair coloring – ammonia free using Eugene Perma Hair Care Product from Paris. It also include hair cut, blow and wash. Eugene Perma is excluse trio of plant and mineral which have ingredient that is essential for hair.

My verdict: When I was doing my hair colouring, there was not scent of the strong chemical smell at all! I feel so organic ammonia free natural happy! Haha I give it a 5 likes!

I was lucky enough because they are new so there are promotion going on in the shop. Only MYR88 for this hair colouring. Then again I was peeping at their menu and realise it is the same price if you walk in (just that it is without hair cut). Buy groupon from here!

My verdict: I was given a range of selection of color to choose of. No limitation of color. No hidden cost. Stylist is not push on my to buy anything extra. For the result, highly recommended!

Peace (Y) That’s me and Jacky 🙂 Have a nice day!

Psssstt! They having MYR28 promotion for mani and pedicure now! Using OPI products! I am gonna try it soon. Well, dear M Square Salon owner, can you give me a free mani and pedicure since I am your returning customer?

Baby Gathering Etiquette – Mummy Lil Handbook! What to expect when bring baby for outing?

Recently come across this from a mummy sharing. Poor her that her little baby got infected (probably) during a gathering.. Thus she actually share this out and I think it can actually benefit all of us!

Have a read 🙂

Baby Gathering Etiquette

Unknown

Recently, my son has caught the chicken pox from a baby that was infected at a baby gathering i attended. And this has brought to my attention that there are so many articles on social and dining etiquette yet none on baby gathering etiquette.

Here we go!

Unknown-1

1) Do NOT bring your baby out to a gathering where there will be children and/or young babies if your child is unwell. Infact, the only reason why you are leaving the house with child in tow is because your destination is the doctor.

2) Do not think its ok just because you dont know what is your baby unwell with. Its worse! Seeing that you arent sure what your baby is unwell with, it could be anything from a common flu to a deadly virus. Why take a risk and expose all the innocent babies. You are not to gamble with the well being of other people’s babies!

3) At a gathering, always ask for permission if you would like to try/take something that belongs to another baby. Some parents might not like their baby’s chew toy in your baby’s mouth! Nobody likes a wipe thief either, bring your own wipes to gatherings and if you run out, ask before reaching out to take wipes from packet that belongs to someone else.

4) Always keep your eyes on your baby. Especially of he/she is sitting next to other babies. This will ensure that the babies dont hurt each other accidentally. (hair pulling, poking the eye and scratching of faces)

5) If theres a sleeping baby, do try to keep your voices down. I know its a gathering but its also good to be considerate to ensure that everyone has a good time. (parent of the sleeping baby may also be considerate and bring baby away from the gathering to allow baby some quieter nap time.)

6) Dont be competitive. It doesnt matter that your baby walked 3 months before mine or that your baby can say a few words before his/her time. ALL babies are the best to their parents and most likely, they will eventually learn to walk, talk and give us grieve in thier teenage years. Be encouraging to other parents, it will be appreciated. Why cause worry in other parents just because their 8mo has not learned to crawl? Babies learn differently and at their own time. Your baby isnt going to be first in everything, would you want to feel bad?

7) This is a no-brainer. If you or your partner is unwell, please, DO NOT attend the gathering. Even with a N95 mask, you are still putting the well being of other attendees at risk. Be considerate.

8) Wipe your baby’s saliva off a borrowed item before returning it. Please dont return a dirty toy/item to a baby.

9) Dont hog the common toys, share and take turns. Your baby isnt the only one who wants to play.

10) Do not kiss any baby unless its yours or you have seeked the consent of the parents. Not all parents are ok with having their babies handled and kissed by other people.

11) Always appoint a parent to bring a thermometer. Check all attendee’s temperature before they join the party/gathering.

The END.

Thank you for reading and i hope all you parents out there pride yourself on being a Considerate Parent. 

xoxo,
MLBB

Sanrio Hello Kitty Land, Johor Malaysia – Travelling tips with my toddler and baby

Hello Kitty Land, Nusajaya Johor Malaysia

How long does it takes to visit: 

  • One day trip could cover up the 3 floors of theme park well
  • Do arrive early says 10am in the morning (soon as they start) and do enjoy till the very last moment 6pm

Where to dine: 

  • They have pretty good choices of cafes and restaurant in the building itself so do not worry
  • Price range from MYR8 could get a decent meal

Breastfeeding and baby friendliness: 

  • Shame, not breastfeeding friendly
  • NIP is NOT NOT common in Malaysia so do remember to bring a nursing cover

Attraction and activities:

Yoomi – Breastfeeding friendly bottle

Yoomi

IMG_6719

Selling point for this milk bottle is the self warming system.

  • Warm up milk in 60sec
  • Milk temperature at a perfect 32-34’C
  • Anti colic & nipple resemble teat
  • 100% BPA free

When I first told my husband that I want to purchase this milk bottle, my husband was much skeptical about it. The very first thing that he asked is, why do I need this?

In my opinion, this invention is actually to replace the warmer. Instead of warming up the milk using the warmer, one can straight use this bottle to warm and feed directly – in a much shorter time too!

I would want to share out my review of Yoomi as follows.

  • Should I buy Yoomi?
  • How to use Yoomi?
  • Is it safe to use? I am afraid it may scald my baby or even electrocute my baby!
  • Is it difficult to wash and how many components there are?
  • My experience
  • Useful Video & FAQ

Hope my review helps.

My breastfeeding friendly confinement lady

My confinement lady called me and thank me for giving her a good review (no discount if i were to engage her again thou.. LOL) however, she say that she is fully booked till end of next year already.. So she want to thank all my reader who support her 🙂

halfmummy, quarterwife, a full time working babe

Soon as I know I am pregnant, I have started looking for “MY” confinement lady. Phobia of tradition confinement that I faced last round, I decided to hunt for a confinement lady that fit “MY Style”. She have to be a breastfeeding friendly and knowledgeable person and DO NOT start nagging me on all the pantang-ish things to do and not to do.

Finally I found “HER” 🙂

During my first confinement, I am not allowed to shower (Chinese believe that if you come in touch with water during the this period, you will have Rheumatism in future), stand or sit up for long (saying that it will weaken our bone or “expand” it causing a bigger hips) and only certain foods are allowed.

With my confinement lady help, she help me to overcome all the totally absolutely rubbish hardship.

Food.

She allowed me to take balanced diet. Which means, vegetables…

Freemie reseller

Screen Shot 2014-11-16 at 9.00.29 AM

There are so many reseller on the market so how to go about to decide who to buy from?

Tip #1

Accessibility is always very important to me. I personally prefer to buy from shop or local reseller and the nearer the better. This is because I believer if anything happens I can go back to the reseller easily. Then again, online reseller works fine for me – normally their price are more competitive.

Tip #2

Warranty. I want a warranty that can be directly send back to the manufacturer. So, No No No parallel importer. My experience with parallel importer was VERY BAD. They took my xxx back and come back to me very very late. Worse, they send my xxx to a local shop and get it repair and send it back to me and I realise it is not fixed with some of my original part missing!

Tip #3

Service. When you buy a new thing in the market (Yes, Freemie was very new in Malaysia market back then in early 2014), you want a reseller that can help to advise.

Tip #4

Of course, money matters. I compare price.

There is a long long list of reseller that you can find. Back then there are less than 3 to choose from. I bought mine from Pump Love, the first and authorised reseller in Malaysia. So far, I am very happy with her service as she teach me how to use and get back to my every question when I asked.  Also, her price are the cheapest among all the quotation that I obtained.
