International Nestlé-Free Week 2010

**this is scheduled and sticky post from 25-31 Oct.
For new entry, please scroll below**

Yes, you heard me right.
This week from 25th October to 31st October 2010 is the International Nestle Free Week 2010.
For those who has already boycott Nestle, this week is the right time to promote it aggressively. And people who are not able to totally boycott it (people like me who cannot avoid a cup of Milo everyday), this week we at least try our level best to avoid any Nestle product.

Why we should boycott Nestle?
Copy and paste from BABYMILKACTION

During International Nestlé-Free Week 2010, Baby Milk Action is calling on the public to email Nestlé over its latest global baby milk marketing strategy. Nestlé is targeting mothers and health workers with the claim its formula 'protects' babies even though babies fed on formula are more likely to become sick than breastfed babies and, in conditions of poverty, more likely to die. Nestlé is accused of undermining the 'breast is best' message by claiming its formula is 'The new "Gold Standard" in infant nutrition' (image below). Nestlé is also accused of refusing to provide important information to parents and carers who use formula. Nestlé has already received thousands of emails, but is so far refusing to drop this marketing campaign.

[Come onn..The new gold standard?!! grrrrr..]
Do read further HERE.
What I plan to do
This boycott definitely will change my shopping habit..ya at least for this week. Labels...check all the labels before buying...100% avoiding all those Nestle products. Me myself will not be taking or preparing any milo for this whole week (Mr Asben, please take note yaa..).
Mommies out there!! Join me in this boycott..advertise it at your FB wall, twitt it..blog it!!
(wahh terlebeyy semangat lak..hahahha)

HadiffBolat (whom not so bolat now..huhuhu) : Nak ebi!! Nak ebi!!
while holding the white teddy..we thought he just wanted to play with ebi(Husna) and the white teddy.. but instead he shoved it at Abah. Abah was a bit puzzled at Hadiff's intention but immediately understood when Hadiff showed the tola..

Taraa!!! He was happy to be able to babywear the white teddy!!
Gosh I never thought of using tola as a pouch ;-p.
And Abah said : See, no need to buy those expensive carrier to carry ebi..ha ha
Bravo Hadiff! Hope you will grow up to be a babywearing daddy some day!!

We love you!!

ArE U A dOnOr?

**in conjunction with World Organ Donor Week**

Yes, I am a proud organ donor..I mean not yet, hopefully when my time comes.

I registered as one when I was still in college...ermmm that was almost 12 years ago.

My donor card- I would like to help someone to live after my death. Ooops my name was spelled wrongly.

You are given choices of which organ you would like to donor. I remember why I skip the bones as I wanted my remains to be still ok to be looked at and do not remember why I skipped the lung. Owh, on cornea... I did say that my cornea may not help so much as I am farsightedness. LOL

This card has been with me for a long time..in fact longer than my ID card.

My mom's reaction
The red card was sent to my mom's house a few months later after I filled in the application form. I almost forgot about this. However, since the envelope had clearly stated the National Kidney Foundation, my mom had mistakenly thought that the letter was meant for my late father (who suffered from kidney failure). She asked my sister to read the letter since it was in English and she was really shocked to know that I had registered to become a organ donor. She kept the letter and the card from me. A few months later, my sister opened up to me saying that the letter and the card had arrived. I had to argue with my mom and did my best to rationalize her. My mom was afraid that if anything bad happen to me, the doctors might not try their best to save me but letting me go so that my organ can be used by others. <<--owh sungguh tidak benar..

My friend's reaction
She said I am signing my own death certificate..gosh..that statement came out from my dearest friend who is now a doctor!! That definitely has changed I hope since she may now realize that the world need more organ donor.

And HERE the link on Hukum menderma organ.
It says
" Memindahkan anggota mayat kepada seorg yang hidup yang hidupnya bergantung kepada anggota itu.
Hukumnya : HARUS, dengan syarat mendapat keizinan si mati (sebelum matinya) atau warisnya selepas matinya atau izin pemerintah kiranya si mati tidak diketahui warisnya.

It means if you really want to be a donor when your time come, you must discuss about this with your dearest. Make them understand your decision. Mr Asben is aware on this.

Have you registered?

GrAdUaTeD EBM StOrAgE BoTtLeS - AcCuRaTe tAK?

Have you ever feel that when you use THESE bottles for pumping, you feel like you get lesser than normal yield..
But when you use THAT bottles, you gain more than normal?
Then you transfer 3oz of THAT bottles to THESE bottles, you found that you actually have gained almost as usual?

entah apa2..

I always have this feeling that 3oz in Medela bottle is actually more than a 3oz in BumbleBee bootle.

So, I believe I should verify that..hmmm...

I have 7 brands of EBM storage bottle. (that excludes out Tupperware which HadiffBolat use).
From Left : Avent, Spectra, MomLittleones, Medela, JungleJingle dan Safety Plus. *Gosh, just realize that I forgot to bring the Bumble Bee.

And I used a clean and unused Pyrex glass measuring cylinder taken from lab.

Since the bottles have gradient a 100ml, I poured 100ml of tap water into the bottles and measured it again with the measuring cylinder.

The result:
Avent - 100ml
Spectra - 98ml
MLO - 100ml
Medela - 100ml
Jingle Jungle - 120ml
SafetyPlus - 120ml

As expected, Avent and medela have better accuracy than the rest but I am surprised that our local brand MomsLittleOnes also at par with imported brands. *salute*

So here at the 100ml of gradient of the EBM bottles

JungleJingle = SafetyPlus > Avent = MLO= Medela > Spectra

in the measuring cylinder.

I checked twice on SafetyPlus bottle, yeap it is correct. It is more than 100ml!!

so kalau rasa cam down sikit yield ini hari sebab tkar botol, paham-paham jalahh okeh.

It'S TaNdEm bAbYwEaRiNg!!

Last night,
Hadiff was sooo "Nak Abaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!!" <-Mr Asben out station
HadiffBolat is soooo attached to his Abah..Ummi pun amau!
BabyHusna was sooo cranky..
I was sooo hungry and wanted to cook koteow sup bodo.
So, since both of them wanted me to dukung.
I did this................
It is Tandem Babywearing!!
12kilos at the back in Boba, 6kilos in front in Wombfruits gauze wrap...
and me tak tau berapa kilos.
They seemed to enjoy it!!
Gosh! I hope I don't have to do this often.. patah pinggang makcik.

SnUggBaBy mT - PrOtOtYpE

This is traveling carrier by Snuggbaby.
Liza who is the owner of Snuggbaby produced this sample for her coming newborn (due this month!).
This mei tai is inspired by a foreign brand Freehand Mei Tai.
Suitable for newborn and small babies.
I love the colour and the fabric it was made of, it feels so soft against the skin.
My only comment is, the strap is not longer enough for me almaklumlahhh debabs lani <<--guess still have tons (bluekk) of post partum fat.
I could not do lexi twist and tie at the back which is I prefer to do.
may be Husna is too big for legs in but still small for legs out.
The base width appears wider and cause one leg to be slightly straighten <--the legs should be in 'M' shape.

b'dAy @ ThE CaRNiVaLL

Last Thursday on 30th September 2010, Hadiff turned to 2 and me turned to 32. Yes, we share same birthday.

We went to The Carnivall Water Theme Park in Sungai Petani to celebrate it. I was quite skeptical on the weather as lately, we had heavy rain almost every day. Thanks to God, we were blessed with a fine day and HadiffBolat had a great time there. Heavy rain had only reached there just when we were about to leave the place.

I guess HadiffBolat had the most fun fun fun time. He loves water sooooo much. He refused to get out from the pool even though he had already trembling with cold. He forced Mr Asben to sit with him in the pool together with other kids. In fact he had claimed one of the water gun as his and no one could ever be near it.

We also allowed him to have eeelahh??? (read:ice cream). He also got his privilege to choose the flavor. He did not care about his sister, treated like she was not exist. IT WAS HIS DAY!!

BabyHusna just slept throughout the day... inside the sling. Pity to moms with stroller, they seemed to be stuck under the shade when their babies were sleeping. I was a happy mom going here and there snapping photos with the sleeping baby tucked safely and snuggle against my chest. Promo sikit : so you should start babywearing today!!

Thanks Mr Asben for spending your time with us that day. We love you so much!

For Sale : A Wrap and A Ring Sling - Both are SOLD!

This is my first time letting go my carriers. Please be nice to me.

Lovey Duds Organic Cotton Wrap.

Stretchy ORGANIC COTTON wrap from Lovey Duds.com
I bought used from MBW. It is one size wrap.
Excellent Used Condition.
Selling at RM120 shipped.

Comfy Joey Kiwi-Raspberry gradation sling.

This is the initial grad job for silk Kiwi-raspberry with some flaws but unnoticeable.
I bought this from Pah with curiosity on gradation, Comfy Joey sling with the fact that it is a silk.
I love the grad but this sling is too short for a tall lady like me, length is 68".
Note that this is a wide width sling with medium silver steel ring, measured at 111cm.
I planned to send it to Syaz for some alteration, but I believe I might not like it anyhow if it is short. So, selling at the price I paid RM160 shipped.

May consider for trade with any shorty preferably 3.6m, I will add RM to cover the difference.

Please e-mail me at annarozy[at]yahoo[dot] if you are interested/have question.
