Baby Checklist (*updated)

Baby Checklist

Pram/Travel System
  • stroller - Stokke complete system also with carry cot in red - in my previous post, konon nak jual bcuz I wanted to buy the purple set, but I think we just stick to red =)
  • stroller travel bag - Stokke travel bag
  • car seat - Maxi Cosi in deep red - can be used with Stokke - just get the adapter.

  • baby changing/nappy bag - still could not find the one that I really liked. Cath Kidson's bags kinda nice, or Juicy Baby - but this is quite expensive (likely wont buy it). Or I just use my Coach Orange Bag.saving skit! -*(at the moment- pakai je orange coach n already bought the changing liners n bottle bag)

  • baby sling -Sorry.I do not like the idea at all.
Bed Cot/Bedding/Baby Drawers

Our idea for the baby space is Teddy! Neutral and cosy. We would not able to have a baby room yet, so we will separate the our bedroom to two parts, our space and baby's. Yes, we do not want a pink room.
  • Cot Bed - internet -, very efficient! Sleigh cotbed French-Victorian design with dark cocoa colour and can be converted to toddler bed when baby dah grow big - up to 4 years.
  • Cot Bed Mattress -from kiddicare too - Sweet Dreams Mattress
  • Bedding Set - We bought the set from Mamas Papas which includes Quilt, Bumper, Fleece Blanket, Jersey Fitted Sheet, Fabric Lantern, Curtains, Tie Backs and a Teddy bear. =)

  • Musical Mobile - the same theme. teddies!=)
  • Dreampod - As baby will be an autumn baby, kena tebal..may this thing keep you warm and cosy while sleeping baby...
  • baby drawers , done. Baby's space to take in shape now.

We bought the Tommee Tippie feeding set. I was comparing the Tommee Tippie with Avent, after my research I found that both are really good and serve its purpose, but Tommee Tippie has better reviews and the bottles are so cute!!

hey kak sue! u've pretty much covered all. firstly, i love tommee tippee (TT)! used to use avent for my baby but after 2 months plus, the cap started to become loose. asyik keluar je susu when u shake it. geram! btw, didn't know there's a TT bottle bag. kat sini takde jual pulak. how much is it?

i personally love anakku bottle cleanser. have tried many brands, but that's the best so far. but dont think u can get it in US. and bottle drying rack is important! keeps all baby bottles organized. such a wonderful invention. hehe.

freestyle (FS) is awesome & very convenient. its sound is most discreet compared to other medelas or other brands. trust me on this! others sound like lawn mower compared to FS.

my baby use cetaphyl shower gel cos she have sensitive skin. the dream genii pillow nmpk cam best. u bought it online? whats a baby memory book? like a journal is it? heard fabulous moms nursing bras are good. but havent try any.
i guna nona roguy dulu. memang elok. cepat kecut peranakan. can u elaborate on that TENS machine?

sueanne sunshine said...

hello Lea, thx for sharing infos!..oh TT bottle bag skrg its Eur9.80, discounted from Eur11++. im going to buy it online, u nak i order ke for u? i hv no problem with tht its just, if Sue posted to u maybe the postage cost will add the cost. but if u dont mind, sue boleh je order for u..

oh yea anakku botol cleanser bagus? i can pesan from malaysia, now ni gather info n list to pesan all that i need..Nona Roguy is one of em!

dear..sue kt Europe la. ahh really wish im in US tho..hehe..

tu la..all the hype n good reviews for Medela FS so sgt tempted to beli! wont look for other types or other brands =)

dream genii sue bought in the shop we call mamas & papas baby store. sue do not hv problem sleeping using this pillow n it gives comfort to my back yg pain ni..

yes its a journal book, which ada slots for first time baby for everything, from baby scan photos, to baby first drawing..sumthing like that. i like will treasure all her growing process!

oh TENS machine- malaysia tak ada lagi? its a free drug pain relief for contractions..dia ada byk level which lagi u feel stronger pain, so u use stronger level. ive read a good reviews bout it, but the TENS takleh lawan the -happi-dural(epidural)! google MamaTENs, it will give u info n how it works..the videos r kinda cool.take a peak!

sueanne sunshine said...

i mean..take a peek!

myra said...

sue!! im liking the baby monitor and i consider it very reasonable as ade camera kan? do u think it will trouble you in your condition for me to pesan one? if susah i TOTALLY UNDERSTAND! muahh.
