[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: 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 🙂

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

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.

Baby O’s First Time Grocery Shopping

Usually, I made the list of things to buy, husband buy the goods while Baby O and I wait in the car in parking lot :D. But not that day. He was 10 weeks 6 days old when husband and I decided to bring him along to grocery shopping in the nearest supermarket from home. Thank goodness Baby O enjoyed the shopping, visiting aisle after aisle, and didn’t cry at all. 🙂

Baby O’s First Time Taxi Riding

He was 11 weeks 4 days old when riding taxi for the first time in his life. It was after he got DPT (Diphtheria-Pertussis-Tetanus) vaccine shot, when Baby O and I took a taxi from the hospital to the mall where husband’s office located. Thank goodness Baby O got the type of DPT vaccine that wouldn’t caused him get any fever (Pediacel), so he soundly slept during the whole taxi ride.

Baby O’s First Time Flying

People said traveling with baby is troublesome. There are many things to bring along. Setting up baby feeding time is not easy either. Baby sleeping time may also not be disturbed. But it wasn’t a problem when Baby O was 13 weeks 5 days old. At that time, husband and I traveled with Baby O from Jakarta to husband’s hometown. He wore his earmuff all the time and when he cried, I just breastfed him to sleep. 😀

Can’t hardly wait for his next first time experiences! 🙂

Baby O and The Feeding Bottle

25 Jun

Baby O’s first encouter with feeding bottle was on his first week of life after being born. At that time, I haven’t produced many milk to breastfeed thus I need to breast-pump to stimulate the milk production. 


Thank goodness I’ve heard of nipple confusion before giving birth, so I didn’t blindly follow my mother-in-law instruction to bottle-feed Baby O. Instead, I bottle-feed him using spoon bottle.

Nipple Bottle vs Spoon Bottle

Baby O was 9 weeks 5 days old when I finally succeed in bottle-feed him with nipple bottle. He refused at first of course, but after he realized he was very hungry and won’t get any direct breastmilk, he gave up and drank from the bottle-feed.

Mommy’s good baby boy. He could understand that he needed to learn to drink from nipple bottle so he could still drink breastmilk when mommy is at work. :’)

Happy Father’s Day, Papi! :*

19 Jun

Thank you for always being there for Baby O in the last 9 months plus 12 weeks :*

Hope you could always be the best father he could ever have

Much Love,

Blessed mom in the name of her beloved son 🙂
