I’m currently going through my check list, seems like 80% is done. Gila rakus punya parents-to-be ni dalam masa sebulan sederap settlekan 80% mana tak pokai hehe. Let’s see what we have pending for lil one :
Barut – kat checklist ni kata 4 helai minimum. I think I’m going to double that amount. This reminds me I need to check with my biras if confirmed she wants to buy this for me when she goes back to Melaka this weekend. She said pakai yg tali punya and covers the whole upper body is better than getting the ones with velcro, coz yg velcro tu nanti suke slip up and down, tak cover bebetul area perut baby tu. So far, I see only Twinsbaby yg jual barut jenis tali ni, yg lain sume jenis velcro.
Diapers – checklist says 1 pack only. I think for now, yes am going to buy 1 pack only. I heard for newborn, Pureen and Mamy Poko ye yg reliable? I’m opting for Mamy Poko’s newborn diapers, cuma tak beli lagi. Tgh survey harga. So far I see Babyland SS2 sells the cheapest for this brand compared to Jusco and Giant.
Baby cot – I think we’ve decided to buy Graco’s Pack and Play (see picture below). Harganya pun dalam RM399 je and I think it’s more flexible compared to buying a wooden cot yg ada kat Twinsbaby..cantek mmg cantek, harga pun double than Graco ni tapi tu la the flexibility in case lil one is not the type who likes to sleep in his/her cot. At least this can be converted into a playpen, tempat sumbat segala toys dia nanti hehe kalo pepagi nak pegi keje or tgh buat keje rumah, bleh je letak dia dalam ni, so tade la dia mengganggu kan..lil one can be in its own world gugu gaga sengsorang dgn toys dia 🙂
Actually I’d prefer to have this design, but this costs RM799 if i’m not mistaken. Lagi cun siap ada tempat utk baringkan dia lagi nak tukar nappy, tapi hubby kata too pricey.
Kelambu baby – takpela ni tunggu bila cot tu dah dibeli, skali harung beli kelambu tu. Mosquito net dah beli dah utk dia golek2 kat lantai tp utk cot blm lg. Kalo ikutkan, malas nak beli but susah la when you’re staying at a high risk zone of dengue ni. Semalam pun lane rumah ni kena fogging, hmm mesti ada kes. On average, Seksyen 7 Shah Alam ni ada 200 cases of dengue per day tau. Gila ke tak gila.
Tilam bantal – this also sekali harung once cot dah beli. Ada byk design cute2 kat Twinsbaby, geram tgk.
Botol susu – I think the ones yg provided together with the steriliser is enough for the time being if I can breast feed. Kalo dah ditakdirkan xleh breastfeed, I think kena la beli lebih kan.
On the other hand, the mummy pun ada checklist gak for herself. Yang ni mcm blur2 sket which to buy or not to buy.
Pakaian di hospital – hmm nightdress/nightgown (2 sets) ideally loose fitting with buttons to the front for easy breastfeeding.
Is it necessary to go for these kind of clothing?
My mum sempoi je cakap “alaa pakai baju Tshirt basahan si Krol pun bole, tshirt yg besar sket”
my colleague plak says she’s just going to wear her checked maternity clothes (which I don’t have any by the way).
what do you ladies think? mummies out there can give me advice?
Nursing bra – hmm ni pun tak beli lagi. This one wait for the very last minute I guess. 2 pairs enough huh? ke kena beli lagi..skali tgk susu tarak, how?
Nursing pad – am just gonna do the way my colleague decides to do. Pakai tuala kecik sudah lap2 pape yg patut kat area breast tu, takyah nak membazir duit pakai nursing pad dulu at the hospital or at home during the berpantang period. Later2 can buy if necessary hik.
Sanitary pad – baru beli 1 pack je Pureen’s maternity pad. The rest I think I’m just gonna use the heavy flow for night wear punya pad tu, it works just the same gak kan? Size pun lebih kurang sama.
Maternity panties / Disposable panties – is there any special requirements onto what type of undies should we wear after delivery? Granny panties or the low waist panties is enough? It doesn’t have to be disposable right. I’ve been wearing low waist panties all these while, kena shop for granny panties yg cover sampai ke pusat tu ke? huhu advise please!
Basically these are the only things pending in my list, I hope I haven’t left out any..kalau ada mende nak ditokok tambah especially for the list for hospital bag, do inform me ye..kita sharing2 sket.
