Once upon a time, a year ago the scenario was quite similar. Me settling my work as soon as possible, in my handbag I had a notebook that contains my scribbles and checklist and my hands were busy googling & blog hopping That, a year ago was for the wedding preparation. Now, my checklist is for the newborn, I have a baby book, headphone is clipped to my waistline as lil one is listening to his/her favourite tune at Youtube, my hand is still fast in googling and my thoughts all the time is towards the remaining 3-4 months of my mum to be journey. Ironic eh? 🙂
After reviewing all of your comments on my previous entry (thanks a lot for that!) with a pen and paper in hand, we went from shop to shop to jot down the price of the potential items that we want to request and surprisingly RM1500 tu sebenarnya tak cukup! haha.
We gave two choices to my friend to decide.
Option a) stroller + baby cot + steriliser (tu pun dah terlebih RM100+)
Option b) stroller + breast pump + steriliser (terlebih RM27)
Skang kita lihat saja review para juri.
Since I’m now approaching my 6 months, I think this is the best time to start hunting for other baby essentials too, but now yg bikin gue konpius skang ni I know that it’s advisable not to purchase too many clothes for the newborn as the baby will grow out fast, tapi kan kat kedai kan jual baju khas utk NEWBORN and also 0-6 months. Yang mana satu is best to purchase? beli dalam 5-6 helai baju newborn pastu the rest is 0-6 months ke or vice versa? confused den coz baju newborn mmg sah2 kecik, 0-6 months besar sket, tp tak besar sgt ke utk newborn nanti? wargh confuse!
I thought micro selecting the items to fit the RM1.5K budget is tough, ni nak pilih baju baby pun payah. Masya Allah. Dengan tatau jantina ni lagi, I have to seek for unisex punya colour lagi. Hehe. Adeh pening aku la. Last² I ended up putting back the clothes and walk out from the store. Dah biol. Hubby too is not much of a help coz he’ll just wanders off to the stroller area as usual, selagi dia tak dpt pegang and bwk stroller tu ke hulu ke hilir, selagi tuuuuuuuu la dia akan merayap ke sana. Galak yg teramat sangat. Pastu tinggalkan bini terpinga² huhu.
Is it true that you need about 10 helai kain batik for berpantang? Terbeliak biji mata aku mendengar. Pakai kain batik pun tak reti yang oit. Byk betul ler mende kene blajar.
Yang set selepas bersalin tu, hubby’s colleague is also doing Amway business so dia ada la promote Amway’s set. Harga dlm RM200+ for the whole thing, pastu ada sorang colleague kat ofis hubby pun dah pakai, dia kata bagus. I have no idea. Bagus ka? Korang tengok je la eh blog tu. Dats not her by the way, I just found that blog whilst browsing. I think I’m just going to purchase it without thinking twice dah nama pun complete kan. Dpt free bengkung. Kalo ada sesape yg berkenan u can inform me, mana tau nak tumpang beli sekali ke kan.
Nanti dah masuk 7 bulan dah start pening nak carik mak bidan plak. The in laws plak on the other hand wants to do a small kenduri lenggang perut and doa selamat. Sigh. We the young generation ni have to oblige je la with the adat org Melayu kita ni. Pastu nak buat 4D scan lagi. They say it’s best to do it from 24 – 32 weeks eh and then the appointment needs to be done 2 weeks in advance at Vision College? Is 6 months too soon to do the scan? from the weeks mcm tak je coz i’m approaching 25 weeks dah.
Aih memcm betul bila dah first baby ni kan. Kang second baby mesti slamber badak rilek je mcm my hubby’s fren. First baby buat appointment segala bagai dgn specialist doc at Assunta. Consultation fees siap RM60 gitu. Tapi masa nak bersalin perit yg amat, kene induce + vacuum + it was more than 24 hrs. Second baby baru bersalin a month ago sempoi je. Monthly check up kat govt clinic free of charge, pastu bersalin kat Hosp Sg Buloh kena byr RM50 je and the whole delivery process took only 2 hours. Haha. Ironic gile.
