Avent Combined Steamer cum Blender and Baby Ashlene's Food / Puree milestone

Usually i'd use our Avent Philips Combined 2 in 1 steamer cum blender to prepare puree for her and freeze the rest so she'll be eating the same puree for about a week.

Absolutely love this Avent Philips Combined 2 in 1 steamer cum blender. It makes preparing puree for her a breeze, depending on the type of food, everything can be done in less than 30 minutes including washing.
It's so easy to use and washing is a breeze as well.

and this is how it works, after steaming the food, simply flip the jar over and you are ready to blend!

It also comes with a weaning food guide, recipe as well as recommended steaming time for a variety of food.

So here's her puree milestone.
I first started out with apple puree (steamed)..argh this was how much she hated it. Guess she's definitely not enjoying the sour after taste.

 super reluctant expression

 on first taste

and then she discovered the sour after taste

subsequently, pursing her lips and refusing to open them

Avocado puree was next for her. it's so easy to make considering that there's no need to steam them. Avocado puree goes very well with milk as well, texture is so smooth just like a smoothie and she loves them.

alrightey from her expression she may not look like she love them but at least she's eating and opening her mouth for more. Of course there are also days which she doesn't feel like eating much

Made pumpkin puree for her next and she seems to like them too

She loves pear puree as well. After steaming it's so much sweeter than apple

And then i decided to give her banana puree, i googled online to find if it's safe to freeze them and it seemed ok for freezing banana puree.
On the first day where she tried the fresh banana puree, she seems to enjoy it.
The next evening when i tried giving her the thawed banana puree, for some reasons she just doesn't like them as much though it tasted the same to me.
And worse of all, she started having diarrhea it was so bad we were changing her diapers every 1hour the whole night.

It's been 3 days and she's still having diarrhea though it wasn't as bad compared to the first night she'd still poo like 4-5 times a day and the poo is relatively mushy, though not super watery but definitely not the usual nice little sausage looking like poo she's used to having.

Now i'm suspecting it may not be the banana puree after all. trying to do keep her off her brown rice cereal to see if it could be the cause as well, since i just started her on the brown rice cereal too.

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.

We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …
