Other than reading, resting, EATING or coughing my head off, I’ve been surfing the net for maternity or baby stuff I need.
I got to start looking for maternity pants and tops because my regular pants are getting tight around the waist. Thank God summer’s here as I can get away with capri pants and t-shirt tops.
Tough looking for tops and pants with NO cute buttons, ribbons or flowers hehe. I will NOT look like a giant lollipop or life-sized Hello Kitty!
I sure miss my old Lewre loafers back home because they are soooo comfortable to walk around in. Not easy looking for loafers in size 38 or 39 here. Remember my boots dilemma?
Hope I can find a comfy pair soon…
Since I plan to use my Paypal money to buy stuff, Hubby will not object to a shopping spree
I’m thinking of getting some XL sized cloth menstrual pads but wonder if I’ll be able to carry it through.
I won’t have a maid and with a new baby, breastfeeding, cloth nappies and regular clothes to wash, not to mention the CRAZY toddler, I don’t think either the confinement lady or I will have energy to clean bloodstained pads!
After all, the lochia is for about a month, right? Will mums who’ve used postpartum cloth pads share their experiences please?
However, the big items are on the KIV list because we’re not sure if we’ll be back in Malaysia for good or stay on in China. In any case, I’m hoping to stay on in Malaysia until the baby’s 6 months old.
If that happens, then I’ll need a carry cot that doubles as a car seat since the boy has his own car seat.
Other than that, I THINK I’m all set using all the clothes and equipment I have for the boy. I’ll only need to get cute baby girl clothes when we know more later
I’d like to sell off the MacLaren Volo stroller though as it’s definitely too long for a short Mum like me. I got it for RM499 – if anyone is interested in buying, do leave me a comment. It’ll only be available in July 2009.
So…any advice and tips for this newbie Mum to two???
