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!

Untitled

Thank you Auntie Jace for Aidan's "Mercedes-Benz" hehehe.

[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.

Untitled

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.

Untitled

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.

Aidan is now 11 months old! Soon he'll be 1 year old. o.O WAY TOO FAST!

Untitled

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

  • He is able to move around with support. He stands while holding onto tables, chairs, humans. HAHHAHA. He also started to push things around.
  • Untitled

  • He claps enthusiastically now. Previous months he started doing the 'twinkle twinkle little star' motion and then pointing.
  • He has started saying mum mum, tata, baba. We're still waiting to hear him say papa and mama heh.
  • Untitled

  • He is still very vocal. He would point at things and say "EH!". He has started gesturing to things that he has queries on or things that he wants/drops. E.g. he would point at Skai walking away and go "EH!" as if to ask where is Daddy going?
  • Untitled

    Untitled

  • He is super hyper. He loves standing when he is not supposed to e.g. in baby chairs, supermarket trolleys.
  • Untitled

    Untitled

    Untitled

  • He is sleeping better at night. While he still sleeps really late, he now sleeps very deeply and does not wake up as frequently as last time.
  • Untitled

  • He has stopped sucking his pacifier to sleep. Instead he latches on me. Comfort latching. Before that, he'll bite on his teething toys.
  • Untitled

  • He is still breastfed. Looks like I'll be able to breastfeed till he is at least 1 year old! YAY!
  • Untitled

    Untitled

  • He has started giving things to people. Recently he fed me his biscuits.
  • Untitled

  • He is not afraid of dogs. Fidel brought her dog recently and Aidan was pretty indifferent to Ollie.
  • He loves touching the iRobot. However when the iRobot is switched on, he would be scared. HAHHAAH.
  • Untitled

  • He is still a very happy and cheery baby 🙂

Happy 11 months old my precious baby. He's growing up way too fast! We'll be planning for Aidan's 1 year birthday celebration soon. Do feel free to share tips and vendor recommendations! And if you'll like to collaborate, do contact me here!

So, my first Chinese New Year as a parent has passed. (Last year not counted, was preggers lah, but not a full fledged mother, ya know?)

Here's the difference between before having a kid and after.

Buying clothes.

Before having Aidan:

Simply just buying clothes and 'trying' to not clash with the hubby. E.g. If he wears green, I'll try not to wear red. We don't want to look like Christmas together.

After having Aidan:

MATCH EVERY FREAKING THING! Priority was Aidan. Finding clothes for him etc. I chose a red plaid shirt with jeans for him. After that, I chose an outfit to match him. DID NOT INTEND TO HAVE A FAMILY THEMED OUTFIT.

But the hubby felt left out and went to go buy a red plaid top. JIN KAYPOH SIA.

Getting ready.

Before having Aidan:

It used to take an hour max for us to get ready. One hops into the shower first, the other snoozes. After that, all rush to get ready and we can leave immediately.

After having Aidan:

Everything that can go wrong, WILL go wrong. Alarm set to go off at least two hours before we're supposed to leave the place.

Unfortunately when the alarm goes off, Aidan decided to latch. for a long time. After latching, tried to go bathe him, he cried. Have to pacify him. Play with him again. Finally can bathe him.

Dressed him up, bow tie too tight. Remove bowtie. Put aside watch for him to wear.

Took turns to shower while ensuring Aidan is in a good mood. Packed diaper bags and double check, triple check that nothing is left out.

About to head out, Aidan decides to latch again. Delayed. Aidan latches while mama cradles him. Daddy looks annoyed.

Finally after Aidan is done, we rush to the door. After locking the gate, we smelled something funny. Went back in. Poonami. Changed diaper.

Rushed out. Forgot the damn watch. Reached in-laws place an hour late.

Visiting.

Before having Aidan:

Relatives hinting/nagging about having kids.

After having Aidan:

Relatives loving Aidan and keeps carrying him, playing with him, smiling with him.

Small talk.

Before having Aidan:

Awkward conversation, small mundane talk. Stares at tidbits when there's nothing much to say.

After having Aidan:

Uses baby to make conversation. Uses baby to distract.

Angbaos

Before having Aidan:

Gives all the angbaos to all the kids, unmarried people etc

After having Aidan:

Collects some angbaos back. FINALLY! Relatives laugh when Aidan picks up the angbaos himself. I DID NOT TEACH HIM THAT!

Overall, this year Chinese New Year was extremely pleasant. Maybe because of the fact that we have Aidan, he was quite well-behaved.

But I know things will change. More questions will be posed to us in future years and Aidan will be running around like the monkey he is.

How was your Chinese New Year? Here are some pics we took this New Year!

Aidan is a perfect 10! hahaa I meant, he has turned 10 months old! Here are some of his milestones!

Untitled

  • He is a champion crawler now. Once he sees something that he's interested in, he'll crawl really fast to the item. Commando standard yo!

Untitled

  • It's a little bit better with the carseat now. There are times where he wails, but there are times where he just 'endures' the car rides.

Untitled

  • He is really very inquisitive now. He loves looking and touching at things. Unfortunately, the distract method does not work on him anymore. When we pry the item out of his clutches. he cries like mad.

Untitled

  • He has learnt to point. He now gestures by pointing at things. Randomly.

Untitled

  • He is still exclusively breastfed and is still a champion latcher. There are times where he bites me. :'(

Untitled

  • He is quite vocal now. He would coo and make the cutest baby sounds and gabbles at times. He also cries loudly at times when unhappy or if he wants to be carried.

Untitled

  • He has mastered the grouchy and pouty look much to our amusement though most of the times he's pretty much a smiley baby.

Untitled

  • We brought him to the public pools recently. Though he seemed a bit apprehensive at first, after that he really enjoyed himself.

Happy 10 months old my precious baby. He's growing up way too fast! We'll be planning for Aidan's 1 year birthday celebration soon. Do feel free to share tips and vendor recommendations! And if you'll like to collaborate, do contact me here!
