20 Questions Tag for New Mums

Yesterday at Emerald Hill
Supposed to be a video but I GOT NO TAIMEEEEEE

Still would love to answer these 20 questions though... so here they are: (I'll tag my mum friends on FB later)

1. Are you a stay at home mum or a working mum?
SAHM but I still do a fraction of the work load (writing/editing/reviewing) I had before getting pregnant. Just take on the assignments I know I can manage, time wise.

2. Would you have it any other way?
Sometimes I wish we were well off enough to like have a helper to do home chores, so I can have some time to myself. (Like even right now at this moment, I have exactly 7 minutes to finish this blog post while Myla's milk is warming in the warmer, and also find a way to squeeze in another 2 minutes to hang up the laundry as the washing machine just beeped).

And don't have to work or worry about income. But yah lah... WHO doesn't want that?! But in the grand scheme of things, life is good.

3. Do you co-sleep?
No, Scared my husband or dog will crush her. But she sleeps in a small travel "box" like thing which fits on our hotel bed (between us) when we travel.

4. One must have for baby?
Either my DIY hybrid Baby carrier or Moby Wrap.

5. How many kids do you plan on having?
Just ONE. I've always wanted just one child. Seems perfect to me. 2 or more would compromise other aspects of my life too greatly.

6. Date night- how many per month?
None. But then, even before baby, we never had any date nights. Maybe because we kinda spend all our free time together anyway.

7. Your child's favorite show?
Baby TV.. some Pidge and Podge looking thing. That's about it, she doesn't get much tv time. Just a few minutes while I quickly get showered. I don't feel TV is necessarily bad for babies though.

8. Name one thing you bought before you had baby that you have never used?
Tommee Tippee bottles. I BOUGHT A LOT SOME MORE. hahahaa. Not that they are bad bottles. Just that when she came home, she needed preemie nipples and couldn't suck hard enough on the tommee tippee bottle teats, and so I bought Pigeon which also was too hard for her. In the end only Dr Brown's had preemie teats, so I got those and they worked perfectly. Still using those now (but she upgraded to level 2 teats recently yay!)

9. Childs favorite food?
Hasn't started solids yet... another month or so..

10. How many cars does your family have?
Family? In our household, none. If by family, you count my brother... then one.

11. Weight gain, pre-pregnancy, during, after and now?
Pre pregnancy 48Kg, Week 35 pregnancy 68kg. 4 months post partum 47Kg... maybe a bit less now.

12. Dream holiday with kids?
Oh... hmmm I don't know man.. I would like to go to Japan.

13. Dream holiday without kids?
None. I cannot imagine my life without my baby with me.

14. How has your life changed since having your baby?
TREMEDOUSLY. Still love it though. But SO DIFFERENT.

15. Finish this sentence... It makes my heart melt to see?
Myla laughing happily.

16. Where do you shop for your kids?
Most of her stuff are hand me downs.. and gifts. If I do shop, for anything, it's online. Btw, want to get a Parklon bubble playmat for her in M size. Know where got good deal?

17. Favorite make up + skincare products?

18. Huggies diaper pants: yay or nay?
Huh? Don't know. But she has tried diaper pants before, I find it hard to put on her, maybe more suitable for toddler stages.

19. Have you always wanted kids?
Nope. I used to really hate them hahahahaa. Only recently changed mind.

20. Best part of being a mum?
I don't know. Almost all parts are great. Just the exhaustion and no time for myself is bad. Oh, seeing my baby develop and learn new things is really really great.
