Aidan is finally 1 year old!

Untitled

It's getting so hard to do the monthly pics now as he hardly lies down and stays still for pictures!  We might need to change the format soon! Should we continue taking monthly pics? Skai thinks we should do yearly only! Hmmm!

As per my usual tradition, here are some of his milestones! Aidan is 1!

  • He has started walking with support. He uses chairs, stools, humans etc to get around.

Untitled

  • We managed get him clap to Happy Birthday.

Untitled

  • He reacts well to music and starts swaying around.

Untitled

  • He is babbling a LOT. He is still very vocal. He would point at things and 'talk' about it!

Untitled

  • His appetite is still very very small! But this month he has started to eat a little bit more!

Untitled

  • He is still breastfed and loves latching. My little boy is aggressive! He actually pulls down my top! :O I've hit my milestone for breastfeeding for one year! YAY!

Untitled

  • He still has not slept through the night! But he has finally started to self soothe to sleep. FINALLY!

Untitled

Untitled

  • He is a very inquisitive baby. He would touch everything and anything.

Untitled

Untitled

  • He still loves being Tula-ed <3

Untitled

  • He is starting to be more affectionate and we LOVE it!

Untitled

Happy birthday my precious! We celebrated his actual day by going to USS as you can see from the pictures in this post! We also celebrated with a party and I'll be blogging about it soon!

As some of you guys may know, I love photoshoots! I really do. Especially now that Aidan is growing up fast, I am totally obsessed with documenting his growth (which is pretty evident from my numerous Instagram posts and milestones posts on my blog)

Previously I did a Maternity and Newborn shoot with Ashley Low Photography and LOVED the experience. Needless to say, it was pretty much a no-brainer for me to go back to her!

I scheduled my Tummy to Tippy Toes shoot with Ashley Low Photography when Aidan was close to 11 months old. This was the time that he was crawling a lot and starting to stand (with support). He was also displaying lots of cheeky grins from time to time and I really wanted to capture that moment.

I discussed with Ashley on a few different concepts and I pretty much left it to her to suggest some themes to play with!

Our first theme was the Ah Boys to Men theme. Which was perfect for us, because Skai is a Regular Medium. hhahahah.

I love how Ashley makes Aidan laugh. She has toys and many gimmicks to coax funny expressions from him!

[Review]

I was introduced to Nateen, a brand of diapers a few months ago by a mutual friend! Nateen is a Belgium Brand of diapers. They started its distribution in Europe and South America in 1990s and is distributed by Turbo-Med.

I was introduced to their baby range of products.

Blur pic but check out Aidan's cheeky grin when he saw the items!

Untitled

We tried the Nateen Baby Pull Up Pants in Size L. ($66 for a carton of 8 x 20's)

Untitled

And the Nateen Tape Diapers in Size L. ($44.80 for a carton of 2 x 64's)

Untitled

And the Nateen Baby Wet Wipes. ($33.60 for a carton of 12)

Personally I have tried quite a wide range of diapers for Aidan before, from the most affordable to the premium, we tried everything. Thankfully Aidan has not had any bad reactions to any diaper so far.

And what's my take on Nateen?

Honestly it feels more premium that the current brand of diapers I'm using. It's very soft with  breathable material and is comparable to the premium range of diapers. I like how that it has a colour wetness indicator (like some of the other brands do!) on the front so that with a quick glance, we'll know if it's time for a diaper change.

In the premium category of diapers, I feel that Nateen diapers is a little bit more affordable compared to the rest? I honestly see Nateen as an 'unbranded' premium diaper. There's no 'design' nor brand endorsement (which could be why it's more affordable?) and it's simple and functional. And that's enough for me. It's ultra-soft, high absorbency, fast drying, works well and has no bells and whistles because that's the way it is. Work like diaper, looks like a diaper. Not a fashion accessory.

For the wet wipes, I find that it's more moist than most that I've used before which makes it really convenient as it helps with stubborn hard poo, dirty table, gross public baby chairs! I also like it comes with it's own lid.

With my new role as a mother, my mindset has changed. I can no longer adopt the heck care mentality I had previously about my health.

Honestly, all I do is worry. Like what my gynae had told me previously: "As a parent, you'll never stop worrying."

And it's so true. I worry whenever the weather is bad. Previously when I was pregnant and there was the haze last year, I was so worried on how it'll affect my pregnancy!

I worry whenever there is a health scare. Zika, HFMD, Flu etc. I avoid people and places when I hear of such a scare. Not everybody practices good hygiene nor do they stay home when they are sick. As much as possible, I try not to expose Aidan (or myself, since I'm breastfeeding) to such situations.
