PREGNANCY WITH BABY Nº2


First of all, thank you to everyone who’s shared in on our excitement since our big announcement. We had been keeping this bub a secret for over 2 months before we told our closest family, friends & then you guys! Covid, isolation, winter & all the lounge wear made it quite easy to cover up this news hence I didn’t…

WHAT WE DID RIGHT IN OUR 1ST YEAR OF PARENTING


Have Other Family Members Care For We’ll never forget our first month being newly parents. If only newborns came with an instruction manual. Actually, forget that thought cause even then it wouldn’t be much help as newborns are unpredictable AF! It was like working overtime in manual labour, exhausting. Luckily, we asked my mum to stay over for the first…

MISTAKES I’VE MADE IN THE 1ST YEAR OF PARENTING


    Breast Milk – Formula   I expressed my milk for the first few weeks then stopped because it was just easier & faster to directly feed from the nipple. What a mistake that was. This made it incredibly difficult for Nova to transition from breast milk to formula as she was highly resistant with bottle feeding. So here’s a…

1 YEAR POSTPARTUM CHECKUP


  You wish I was at the beach. That makes the two of us. These photos were taken almost 4 months ago, seems like ancient history now that we are self-isolating at home during this COVID-19 pandemic. Hope you are too ♡ (Warning: The following content is a little TMI so if you’re not up for it, close the tab)  …

NOVA’S 1ST BIRTHDAY

RELATIONSHIP TIPS


How Daniel & I will be celebrating our 11yrs together (1yr married) this Wednesday so here’s a little story about how we first met. It was definitely not love at first sight. In fact, we did not get along when we first met. My tomboy personality really shined during my high school years so I hung out with more boys…

BABY BEACH DAY ESSENTIALS


  Pack List   It’s difficult to replicate the comforts of your own home when you’re out with a baby. It was Nova’s first trip to the beach so we had to make a list in advance just to feel prepared. Of course, we wanted to take everything at first; from the high chair to the walker & her whole…

THE NEW MUM


      Establishing   We knew straight away that we wanted Nova to be breastfed, we just didn’t realise how challenging it would be. At the beginning we were so pressured by our mums to give Nova formula that we ended up having to do so on the 3rd day just to settle them down lol After 5 days of producing…

WHAT A PAIN IN THE.. | MY LABOUR & DELIVERY


    I’ve always been curious about the process involved in labour/delivery, I just want to know what to generally expect. Every time I raise the question the answer would always be “it’s not as bad as people make it out to be” or “the pain is indescribable” which doesn’t say much at all. Now that I’ve experienced it for…
