Confinement made easy with Mummamia

I've finally ended my 28-days confinement!

Besides eating food that has bits of ginger, red wine, sesame oil and lots of fish, I've been taking lots of herbal soups and red dates tea from Mummamia during these 28 days. By the 2nd week, I found myself slowly getting back in action. I believe having the right nutrition and nourishment really help me to speed up recovery. Even though I don't know much about Tradition Chinese Medicine (TCM), I do strongly believe that having the right herbs helps new mothers to recuperate faster.

Stroller and car seats cleaning by PramWash + Giveaway

Since Emmalyn's trusty stroller and infant car seat are still in good condition for Avalyn to use, we didn't get any new one. However, I knew they needed a good wash. Over the 4 years of use, I didn't really wash it thoroughly as it is really not easy to wash them. Thus, I was thrilled to find out about PramWash, a cleaning specialist for prams and car seats. I no longer need to figure out how to dismantle and wash them thoroughly.

Ordering for washing service is simple and convenient with the self drop off option. After making an order on www.pramwash.com, we just need to drop off the car seats or stroller at any time! We went down on a public holiday to drop off our items for wash.

Jamu Postnatal Massage by All-Ten-Tic + Giveaway

This review and giveaway post is in collaboration with All-Ten-Tic
 
Strained back and shoulders, overworked joints, expanded uterus and hip, heavy loss of blood, and intense stress and pain. Indeed, 36 weeks + 2 days of pregnancy and the "fast and furious" child birth have taken a toil on my body.
 
Thus, I appreciate having a 4-week confinement to recuperate and nurse myself back to health. During these 4 weeks, I had a confinement auntie to help me with cooking and caring of Baby Avalyn. In addition, I was also pampered with a 5 days Jamu postnatal massage by All-Ten-Tic.
 
When I was expecting Emma, I read about the benefits of postnatal massage and was convinced that it was necessary. After reading through the reviews on the forum, I went ahead to book a freelance masseur that I found online. The body massage was good but the breast massage was very painful. I thought it was normal until I experienced one painless breast massage few months later. Hence, I was pretty skeptical to engage another freelancer. So, when I heard about All-Ten-Tic, I knew I could trust them since they have been in business since 2008.

Shopping on iherb for Aveeno Baby Skincare!

This review post is in collaboration with iHerb

I used to think that all babies have perfect, flawless and smooth skin. However, I found out that dry and sensitive skin is getting pretty common. Emma's just one of them. She breaks out in rashes and bites easily. So, I enjoy trying on products that could help with her skin and looking forward to new experience with Baby A.
