AWARDS AND ACHIEVEMENTS
AS FEATURED IN
Finding the right products for your breastfeeding process is important, especially when it comes to breast pump as there are many different types and quality to choose from. The good one will help you keep your milk supply flowing and not causing any pain. For me, I always prefer electric pump than the manual.
I started pumping as early as second day after giving birth to baby Terena so that she can benefit from my supply even when I’m not around with her or need more sleep. She has been bottle-fed (with breastmilk) as early as 2 days old and at least every two days.
And recently, I’ve started using this Silent Electric Breast Pump by Pigeon.
It’s a very quiet pump with silent motor that allows me to express breastmilk without disturbing my sleeping baby in the same room, and of course doesn’t cause any pain as well.
It has a good suction strength which is adjustable. The Advanced Sealing Air Cushion also helps to painlessly stimulate a steady let-down of breastmilk. There is no backflow feature and only few parts to assemble; making it easy for pumping and cleaning. This product is easy to carry around with me because of its lightweight. Their price is very affordable compared to many other brands too.
Good breast pump should come with good nursing bottles too.
And yes, they are essential tools for you (and your babysitters) when you are in a situation where direct breastfeeding is temporarily not possible such as during illness etc.
Makes me even happier to introduce you more good stuff: Peristaltic PLUS™ Nursing Bottles – a new nursing bottle designed to mimic a baby’s natural sucking behaviour and minimise nipple confusion.
Based on extensive research on feeding babies, Pigeon bottles stimulate the three key steps of a baby’s natural sucking motion; enhances the peristaltic movement – the unique undulating motion of a baby’s tongue, which removes milk from a mother’s nipple – thus encouraging the baby to employ an unerring sucking pattern, cultivating healthy sucking behaviour.
The bottles are made from sophisticated materials, meticulous measurements and production methods, and uniquely crafted with roll-free bottle hoods. In addition, the Peristaltic PLUS nipple is made using a thick silicone rubber which is flexible and soft for your baby to drink with comfort.
I’ve been using many different milk bottles from Pigeon but this is currently my favourite. My baby seems to love and manipulate it very easily as if she was breastfed directly from me. I strongly recommend you to try them.
The Silent Electric Breast Pump and Peristaltic PLUS™ bottle (comes in two sizes) are available at leading departmental stores, supermarkets and baby product stores.
Give the needs to both, you and your little loved ones.
If you want you hair to look good, it’s going to take some work. Look at my hair now and you probably have no ideas how bad my experience was with hair rebonding.
First time I got my hair rebonded many years ago, it turned out to be a big disaster. My hair was very damage with a lot of spilt ends. It took me more than a long time to fix that so I was afraid to do it again.
However, I want my hair to look good everyday without having to straighten the wavy parts, and also to save time. After much thoughts and consideration, I decided to go down to my new hair sponsor, Combhead at Plaza Singapura and get better suggestion on this from the experts.
Soft rebonding would be a good choice for my hair type instead of normal rebonding. Normal rebonding will make my hair look too flat and too straight like a broom. That’s a NO for me. Honestly speaking, I kinda have a phobia for rebonding since my first experience was pretty bad. I have been taking really good care of my hair so those effort shouldn’t go to waste right? Most importantly, I trust my new sponsor right after my very first visit. They have technicians as a specialist, and hair stylist separately. This is to make sure you have higher chance to achieve exactly what you want yet keeping your hair healthy.
Insteading of rebonding my whole head, they suggested me to do only certain parts from the root to middle part and avoid the ends; to achieve natural looking straight hair with my natural wavy ends to compromise the look. Here’s the result.
Need I say more how much I love my hair now?
Process took about 3 hours in total. What I enjoyed most was great hair wash because the way they do it surprised me. I know many salons give head massage but at Combhead they pay attention to details on every points. Talking to a massage lover like me.
Not only the atmosphere makes me feel like home with a spa but I love how the staff treat their customers as well; friendly yet professional. Working with nice people is enjoyable.
This is my favourite spot and it supposed to be their makeup services area. They also have a private room if you want one.
Oh yes, they like to spoil their customers too.
If you are curious, Liz was the one who did my rebonding and haircut by Phyllis (above). Price for soft rebonding is around 280-350 depending on your hair length.
You can check out their Facebook here or call 62388044 to book your appointment, located at Plaza Singapura #04-31.
And again, thank you for making me feel very comfortable and great results.
Do you need to straighten your hair so often because your hair is too frizzy to wear it natural?
Especially for very frizzy and curly hair, you need to use high heat but it will also damage your hair at the same time. Having beautiful hair day after day is not an easy work unless you know the keys. And those are, the right tools, the right techniques and of course the right products.
I have a bit of frizzy baby hair on the front and top of my head. Thanks JOHN FRIEDA, the No.1 hair brand in UK. I have recently tried their Frizz-Ease range and it works for me.
Full Frizz-Ease range.
After using their shampoo and conditioner, my hair become more smooth, hydrated and easier for straight styling that lasts up for a day. It smells great and the scent last long too.
But out of all products from this range, my favourite is Leave-on hair serum. I use it on damp hair and blow dry after. It isn’t greasy in my hair and helps to reduce my frizzy baby hair too. This product has won many beauty awards in US and UK. 1 SOLD EVERY 30 SECONDS!
