Skirt for hidayah

Another sewing entry.
She requested a tiered skirt to wear to tuition.
She just 9 years old but with her size, i almost fit in this skirt.
It is hard to find a 'young' prints cotton unless using polkadots and of course american cotton.
With a limited budget given to me, i found this cute print in nagoya. Just rm8 per metre.
Hope she loves this skirt.

My very first bag project : The Tohuku Tote

I finished sewing this tote in just 1 week, should complete it earlier but with Mr Asben is away I could not find a free time from those two active growing up kiddos.

Manage to find the guts to use designer fabric this time..hehehhehe
Amy Butler Lotus in brown with Ashley English cotton.

I lined it with tafetta velvet making it a water proof bag.

Still senget benget here and there..but oklah since my sister is willing to use it.

I got this pic from fellow babywearer.
Test conducted to evaluate the condition / level of comfort of the wearee in a crotch carrier and in a soft structure carrier (SSC).

You can see how uncomfortable he is in that crotch carrier ?(looks like a baby bjorn or look a like)
He was practically hanging on his father for assurance from falling off.
And see how he seemed relax and confident in the SSC..

Carriers like the Bjorn, Snuggli and Infantino SSC have earned the un-savory nickname “crotch-danglers” because they don’t position baby in the natural holding position.  Instead, baby is seated in a fairly narrow seat leaving the legs to dangle straight down.

I’d also argue that the “crotch-dangle” position is simple not comfortable for baby (and somewhat different in a carrier where baby can’t rest his feet vs. an exersaucer or jumperoo where his feet touch the floor).  Try this simple test taken from Didymos’ instruction booklet:  Stand on one leg with your other leg out in front of you, bent at the knee.  Place your hands under your knee to support your leg and let the full weight of your leg rest into your hands.  Now move your hands back towards your bum.  You will instantly begin to feel a strain in your back that wasn’t there when your leg was supported under the knee.  That’s the same strain a baby will feel when his legs aren’t supported to the knee.   Even if we assume that this position doesn’t cause harm, it certainly isn’t as comfortable as the alternative.

So my dear friends, please please please avoid from buying any crotch carrier.
Please read this article explaining how bad the effect is on baby's spinal development.

Make Penang Breastfeeding Friendly

Masage from MMPS

Dear all,

Do join us in this event either be there at the event or virtually. If you're from Penang, we strongly encourage you to come and support us. We need 100 mothers to breastfeed at the event to create a bigger impact or to further increase breastfeeding awareness to the community/public. 

Come on mothers, don't be shy. This is the time we stand up together and tell the public BREASTFEED is the BEST FEED, and it's NORMAL to breastfeed in the public. We adult want to dine in a fine restaurant or eat anywhere, why can't our lovely baby? Why do we need to hide or breastfeed in the toilet? Our baby definitely don't want to be fed in the toilet (smelly, yucks!) Babies have their right to be fed in anywhere too. When the public see more mothers breastfeed in the public more often, they will definitely accept it as a normal thing eventually. So we need your support. Come join us in the event. We alone cannot change the culture, we need you all to educate the public what is RIGHT!

Do come and join us on 9th Oct. For details on how to pre-register, please see below email.
Help us to spread the words too. Thanking in advance. Cheers.
