Buying and Changing Diapers

Most of the time, mommies do find time to change diaper because we need to check if certain diapers are good for our babies skin and if certain diaper gives more rashes than other diapers. I accepted the fact that cloth diaper can be better but there will always be advantages and disadvantages of using cloth diapers than disposable diapers.


My MIL gave me cloth diapers to change baby's' diapers during day time and just to use disposable diapers at night time. The problem is that whenever baby tend to use the cloth one, every 10 to 15 minutes he would pee and start to cry and that would disturb his sleep. Good thing MIL is the one washing the clothes and she can hang it dry and iron it. But now that she's come home to their place, I don't have time to do the laundry and ironing.


I do struggle in changing diaper cloths every time. It is much more convenient for me to just use a disposable diaper. Although I do take some time to inter change the two, meaning from an hour in the morning I would use the cloth diaper, and after 4pm on-wards, I will be using disposable diapers.

I have used Pampers, Huggies and the latest was this LoLla's Diapers which is good up to 6 pees before changing. It is fast absorbent although not that cheaper on a regular price. Good thing that hubby considered buying it on a promotional price of Rs399 for 60 pieces, 60 because it was buy one take one offer. But if that is back on original pricing, it will be much more expensive than Pampers and Huggies.

Anyway, I'm glad to use this diaper for now which costs around Rs6 plus on a discounted pack. Next time that they will change it to its regular price, we won't be able to buy it anymore. At the end of the day, if I may count the diaper changes I had, its about 7 or more. But its okay, it was the normal thing since babies tend to drink more and more as they get bigger.

Useful tools for Mommy

Actually I have to post a lot but for now these will be the tools I have to showcase and moms would also agree especially if they have used these items already. I do have nose aspirator for clogged nose of baby and digital thermometer which is easy to use.

Digital thermometer we bought for only Rs 75 offer promo

Nose aspirator which we also bought online which is Rs50 in a promo
nasal aspirator

I have to say that I really like the features of a digital thermometer which is accurate, mercury free and fast and convenient to use. It can be use for oral, rectal and basal use. It also has beep alarm so that you will know that the reading is done. It also records the last reading and it is not that easily breakable.

Only thing is that mine reads in Fahrenheit instead of Degrees. But so far, so good. Although the nose aspirator we had was opt for 3month old above but no worries, you can still use it as is.

Pampering Baby

I really have a difficult time to adjust yet and so I waited for my mother in law to come and help me when it comes to pampering my baby. Pampering in a sense that when taking a bath, I really do need her help since most of the time, I was feeling groggy because of lack of sleep.

J&J Baby Bath Set

Its okay since this will really be natural for mothers to be deprived of sleep when baby tends to change in his or her sleeping pattern. I am just thankful that at the moment, she will be here with us to take care also and look after baby and me.

I really suffered from Post Natal Depression on the first to second week of my delivery. I was really scared and was worried about my baby's health and I feel so alone in this world. But since I really do trust God on what He can do to us, I begin to worry less and brave out every time that I have questions in mind whenever I feel that something is wrong when in fact, there was nothing wrong.

Baby just finish his first vaccination which is the BCG and anti Polio drops. We will be back again after a month for another round of injection. I am always praying for God to give my baby the strength and protection he needs. Most of what I just worry is his spilling of milk and whenever I don't usually burp him even if I try so much.

But what I just do is to give him small amounts of milk, plus keep him in upright position first before laying him to his bed. Sometimes it does work, sometimes, milk spill is still there. I just don't like whenever I see the spill becomes forceful at times like its a volcano eruption coming out of him and sometimes on his sleep, he gets jumpy or startled.

Now that I get to lay him on his side, It is much better to monitor him sleeping like that. At least that is what the Pedia told me also as I needed to pat his back whenever he gets to spit out milk. Just this day we gave him a good quick warm bath which is just a sponge wipe. It made him felt good.

Hubby brought some Johnsons and Johnsons' set for baby bath, kinda okay if you ask me. I haven't used the shampoo, soap and lotion yet. Probably another two more months, depending if hubby asks me too since he said not to use the shampoo yet till 6 months. I also would like that idea since I really wanted safe and natural products to use first, so excluding shampoo is one of what we will do. How do you pamper your little one?
