[Travelling Essentials #1] Review: Baby’s Portable Placemat – Kiddopotamus Tiny Diner

Our family just returned from a vacation in Singapore and I feel super-refreshed! It’s wonderful to have THREE babysitters (Mum, Dad and sister) for Vee while hubby and I take a well-deserved break. I’ve bought all my Lunar New Year clothes and bags (shopping in Singapore is fanta-bulous!), and we’re so into the celebration mood …

When we travel 300+km to visit his grandparents in Singapore, a vacuum …

Review: Fisher-Price Healthy Care™ Deluxe Booster Seat

Before plopping Baby V into a highchair when we dine out of home, I would wipe (more like scrub) the seat thoroughly with a wet wipe. However, there are occasions when being armed with wet wipes is not enough: One Japanese restaurant had ONLY 2 highchairs when there are 3 children in our dining group …

Review: Beco Baby Carrier (Butterfly 2 DUO)

As Baby V grew beyond 8kg, it became strenuous to carry him in a sling, which places his entire weight on one shoulder. Another carrier that we owned also did not work because it strained the back. I read about soft baby carriers that provide an ergonomic sitting position (as opposed to baby’s legs dangling …
