[Review] Great Job, Tokopedia

To read review about Pampers Splashers, click here

Usually, I buy Baby O’s disposable swim diaper from an online shop via instagram. After confirming the product is ready stocked through whatsapp by chatting with the shop’s owner/admin, mommy will transfer the payment via online banking. The shop will then send the package using one of mail shipment’s option (JNE regular). If the online shop is also located in Greater Jakarta, I could only received the package one day after the transaction, at the earliest.
Just recently, I bought Baby O’s disposable swim diaper using one of Indonesia’s e-commerce, tokopedia. I could directly confirmed whether the product was ready stocked or not, from the site. I paid the product via e-commerce payment in online banking. Then the online shop would send the package using one of one day service shipment, Go-send by Gojek, if the shop is also located in Greater Jakarta. I could received the package on the same day with the transaction made. Yeiy! 😀😀😀

Gojek is actually started as an ojek online smartphone application. This application allow users to search for available ojek riders nearby to bring them to any destination they want, with in the city. Unlike the traditional ojek where the fare is decided by the rider, Gojek standardized the fare by distance and time. The longer the distance, the busier the time, the higher the fare

It’s also started from Tokopedia where buying online could be with fast response, easy process, quick delivery (less than 2 hours since payment made 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻) and no more hassle in registering new bank transfer destination. Although I bought Pampers Splashers in pieces, not in pack, but the received pieces of swim diapers are guaranteed original product. Yeiy! 😀😀😀

[Review] Baby O’s Disposable Diapers

23 Jan

When fall in love, people tends to give whatever best for their loved ones. Including parents’ love to their kids. They’ll do everything, including sacrifice, to make sure their kids get the best ones. That’s how deep we love Baby O.

It’s commonly known that baby’s diaper and baby’s milk contributed the biggest share of baby daily’s expense. Thank goodness Baby O still gets his exclusive breastmilk, so I could transfer the budget from milk to be added up to diaper’s budget 😂

Baby O’s daily disposable diapers history:

1️⃣ Fitti: too thin, possible leak, kind of rough on Baby O’s butt, cause redness. Baby O only wears it for 3 days in the hospital, because it is free for newborn baby

2️⃣ Nepia orange: thin, no leak, soft, no redness. Baby O has worn it from New Born size to L Tape size. Mommy and Baby O loves it so much ❤️

3️⃣ Mamypoko Extradry blue: bulky, no leak, not so rough, sometimes rash. Occassionally buys small amount for stock in case mommy doesn’t have time to buy Nepia orange/genki in Fany Baby Shop at ITC Ambassador

4️⃣ Happy Diapers: just tried the free samples of XL Pant size. A little bit softer than Nepia orange, thin, no leak, no redness visible, extra cute diaper patterns that Baby O loves (see picture below)

5️⃣ Nepia genki: thin, no leak, extra soft, softest than all, totally no redness. Baby O recently wears it because Nepia orange is very hard to find 😦

Ori 39w7d old: Chooses cute Happy Diapers over Nepia genki

It seems Baby O will continue to wear Nepia orange L54 Tape (whenever available) or Nepia genki L54 Tape. Mommy rather chooses Tape diaper than Pant diaper because on the same display size, Tape diaper has larger actual size than Pant diaper. But if Baby O is invited to any diapers party, will surely show up with cute Happy Diapers hihi 😆

On a side note, Baby O also wears disposable swim diaper, Pampers Splashers. They won’t get bulky when wore in the pool, so Baby O can float easily, nothing weighing him down. They also available in cute characters too, like the sesame street edition that I usually buy for Baby O. Uber cute! 😍

Baby Milestones[2]: Walking and Kicking

2 Jan

Happy new year 🎉🎉🎉

Baby O closed the year 2016 by learning how to walk. It’s kind of cute that he’s always looking for his mommy’s or daddy’s fingers now as his sign that he wants to walk. A few steps at first, never ending circle-ing the house now. Hopefully husband and I can reduce our belly fat for good. 😂

As a former basketball player, husband has big hope that basketball will be Baby O’s first ball play. Too bad it seems the soccer blood runs thicker from my gene in Baby O’s vein. My father, my uncle, and my brothers are soccer players. Even I was a goalkeeper in my college’s female futsal team. 😉

Ori 40w5d old: First ball kick


Wish us a great year ahead. Hopefully everything runs better in 2017, aamiin 🙂

Baby Milestones: May It be Skipped?

21 Dec

Lay, upturn, roll, sit, creep, crawl, stand, walk, run

Ori 2 months old: Resting on his arm

Those are the milestones any baby should achieve in their early stage of life. For psychology sake, it is better not to skip any milestones, because every baby needs to experience every single milestones in his/her life. That is according to Baby O’s pediatrician.

Ori 5.5 months old: Rolling on his own

Baby O first able to rest on his arms when he was 2 months old. However, due to his massive body weight for his age, Baby O is able to roll around by his own on his 5.5 months old. He is able to sit on his 6.5 months old. And able to creep on his 7.5 months old. He is supposed to start crawling on his knees these days but he finds it is hard to do on bed.

Ori 6.5 months old: Sit on his own

To be noted, Baby O usually spends his days on bed, or on his walker. Husband or I rarely put him on floor, because no floor available to explore in his bedroom, all space for bed. The open space is available in the living room, but we rarely sit on the living room. Either we are too tired at night on weekday, or too busy outside the house on weekend.

Ori 7.5 months old: Creeping on his feet

So it seems that Baby O will skip the crawl step and move forward to the stand up step. On his 8.5 months old, he is currently figuring out how to stand up on his own by always find ways to rest his body on his daddy whenever we are on bed. Maybe he is afraid on the floor and rather feels safe on bed thus achieve baby milestones, only on bed.

Ori 8.5 months old: Standing up on his own

We are half proud and half confused parents, should we insist him on crawling first? What do you think, parents? What about your baby?

The Early Riser Kid

11 Nov

In our childhood time, husband and I only needed less than 30 minutes to arrive at our own school. The habit had been started since we were in elementary school. That’s why, each of us rented dorm room near the office before married. Because we were the late riser. We woke 1 hour before the office started because it only took us 1 hour from getting up from bed, took a bath, ate breakfast, went out from home, to arrive at the office.

But since husband and I couldn’t live in the dorm anymore when Baby O born, we moved to a house in a suburban area. When we first moved, it was surely a challanging time for us. It was either woke up real early and arrived on time at the office or woke up on our usual time and arrived late at the office. Please note, it takes 1.5 hours from house to the office using motorbike, 2 hours using commuter train, and 2.5 hours using car.

People say disclipinary should be taught to kid since they are little. Including the time they wake up, take bath, eat, play, and sleep. Husband and I actually thought of that and we are not sure whether we have the heart to teach Baby O to wake up early. We never want to disrupt sleeping people, especially Baby O, because we think people will wake up on their own when their sleeping time is already fulfilled.

So yes, husband and I never taught Baby O to wake up early. We can accept if Baby O is naturally a late riser. And it’s a surprise for us knowing that Baby O is naturally an early riser kid. He learned that on his own, no one taught him. He usually wakes around morning pray time (5 AM) and go back to sleep again after morning bath (around 8 AM). Hope this good habit will continue until he goes to school. But please don’t grow up too soon, Baby O

We are indeed the proud parents 🙂

[review] Pigeon Baby Products

16 Oct

Pigeon is one of trusted brand for baby products. I use Pigeon products for Baby O’s need from bath, groomimg, nursing, to feeding:

1️⃣ Baby Wash 2 in 1: Baby O hasn’t use this combined liquid soap and shampoo product yet. It comes for free when buying 120ml Feeding Bottle

2️⃣ Hair Lotion: I always apply this product to Baby O’s hair after bath to soften and thicken Baby O’s hair. It has good Chamomile aroma

3️⃣ Cologne: I always give Baby O cologne after bath. This product has good aroma too

4️⃣ Nipple Cream Care: I use this product since Baby O was #1w7d old up to 1 month old. It quickly soothed and healed mommy’s dry skin due to breastfeed

5️⃣ Weaning Bottle with Spoon: When I couldn’t breastfeed directly, Baby O was given breastmilk with spoon weaning bottle up to 3 months old to avoid nipple confusion. Thank goodness Baby O never experienced any nipple confusion

6️⃣ Nursing Bottle: Baby O was given breastmilk using nursing bottle when I had to go to work from maternity leave (4 months old). If only the nursing bottle is embossed like the weaning bottle with spoon, it will be great. Well, it’s just my one two cent

7️⃣ Plate and bowl: Pigeon feeding set is the best price for value product. It comes in simple yet handy design

8️⃣ Spoon: Pigeon is one of baby spoon’s brand that I use to feed Baby O. My hands are comfortable to use it and it’s safe for Baby O too

What about your baby products? 🙂

Baby O’s First Time Experience [6]: First Meal

26 Sep

Click here to read Baby O’s previous first time experience.

Time is relative, it’s not a constant variable. It feels just yesterday when Baby O’s out of my tummy. Today he’s 6 months old and ate his first solid food.

Happy 6th months old, my dearest Baby O. Mommy can only wish what’s best for you. Hope you enjoy your first meal and the meals after. Hope you can always be the light of mommy’s day :*

At first it was only pure banana puree. Somehow, Baby O showed 20 minutes of not having the appetite to eat solid food. After took off his slabber, the puree mixed with breastmilk, Baby O’s finished his meal in the next 20 minutes 😂

Initial Banana Puree ingredient:

125g Banana cavendish

Ori 26w3d old: Eat First Solid Food

2nd try Banana Puree ingredients:

125g Banana cavendsih

10g breastmilk

With baby trying new activity, we need to be more patient. We can not judge the baby can not or does not like or does not want to do it in only 1-2 try. It’s totally new for the baby, so let him/her learn in his/her own pace.

Let’s try again tomorrow Baby O :*
