Had a super dinner at Garden NACC, Chendering with hubby, Zahra, sisters and dad. The food was good, esp the tomyam. Taste a bit like Paradise Deluxe's. Forgot to take photos of the food since we were too bz eating! Zahra was bz playing with the fork and spoon!
And cheeky Zahra was soo excited when she saw the mini playground! Heck, even mommy pun naik slide ngn Zahra.
First of all, there's this event called the Great Cloth Diaper Change 2011 that aims toset a world record for the most cloth diapers ever changed simultaneously. Yup, you've read right. It's a plan to break the Guinness(TM) World Record! The event is also held in Puchong, organised by this sweet lady, Farhana Fadzil of Clothdiapermalaysia.com, by bringing Malaysian mommies to participate in the important event too!
Ok, so as much as I want to join the event, I'm too far away to participate, plus my hubby will have his final paper on that day :((. So what I'm gonna do is to just participate in this Giveaway held in conjunction to the event. GREAT!
So, this is my entry....
I started to know about babywearing back then during my pregnancy days. It was in fact in my wishlist. Read them everywhere online. But since there's no decent baby store in Kuala Terengganu then, I had never tried one. So, after getting myself addicted to cloth diaper through Diaper Asia, i had come to know more about babywearing gears and how they can help parents to bond with their babies while doing other chores @multitasking. i came to know the many kind of babywearing gears, including pouch, ring sling, wrap, mei tai and soft structure carrier.
so far, this is my stash..
a Snuggbaby SSC and
a Jumpsacbaby ring sling.
I know it's not much, but they have been great help to me!
My dream carrier would be something practical, parent-friendly, compact, not bulky, and MUST be comfortable to the parents and baby. It also must be versatile and can be worn by both me (petite-size) and my husband (large-framed) with minimum adjustment. The material (especially the body panel) need to be made from breathable material so that both the parents and child would stay cool despite our warm weather. The hood also comes with variety of choices such as meshed hood for hot indoor activities, regular hood for sunny days or with waterproof layer such as PUL for those short unexpected dashes in the rain where you forgot to bring your umbrella (or when the PUL prints are just too cute to resist :) )
The waist and shoulder padding also must be comfortable for the parents and can be easily adjusted to cater for mum (waist measurement 25") and dad (waist measurement 36"!). It should also could be used multiple ways such as front carry when baby is fussy, back carry for longer trip, or hip carry. It should be folded into a bag so that it can easily be carried or stored when not in used. Nice!
Stylish designer prints for the body panel must be gender-neutral to allow both parents to try it. Here are some of the prints that are worth drooling.. (all photos credit to Art Gallery Fabrics):
their Alhambra and Alhambra II Collection (Suitable for moms and dads)
or their Naturella Collection
Actually, all of their collections are gorgeous..I'm going crazy!hehe
Proudly Malaysian brands of baby carriers are generously sponsoring these prizes : 1 x The Stork SSC by SNUGGbaby, 1 x Mei Tai by NeezaNeedles, 1 x Ring Sling by Deana Design
Between all 3 of the prizes the Giveaway offers, what I want the most is the Mei Tai. Why? Simply because I have never tried one before and have been reading everywhere how convenient and versatile it is. Sure, it needs a lot more practice than an SSC, but once I get the hang of it, I'm sure will love it! Furthermore, the design of Mei Tai by NeezaNeedles are gorgeous! But, Snuggbaby "The Stork" would be lovely too since I'm already familiar with the Snuggbaby high quality handwork...
