I can be a bit of a germaphobe sometimes which is why I always carry around hand sanitizers, pocket-size alcohol and sanitary wipes.
Working at the hospital, it was often unavoidable to come in contact with bacteria, but hey, at least I was doing something to lessen it.
And when I got pregnant and after I gave birth, I became even more paranoid. You know when other people would say, “Expose your kids to germs sometimes”?
Well, that hardly applies when you’re a parent especially when you’re with a newborn whose immune system is not yet fully functional.
There are those who would say that baby bottles are relatively safe if you just clean them properly and so you only have to sterilise once – at the beginning. I don’t agree with this. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.Continue reading
When you become a mother, you gain so much respect for other mums because you know, it’s one of the hardest ‘jobs’ in the world.
Whether you stay at home or go to work, there are several instances when we have to know certain ‘skills’ that will make everything more convenient for us.

I remember the first time I saw my little one dancing. Even when my boy was still a few days old, we often played music not just to lull him to sleep but to soothe and calm him. My husband plays the guitar and is one big music lover.
I wasn’t big on playing Mozart or Beethoven while I was pregnant. I just wanted anything with a feel-good rhythm and melody. So my baby was exposed to all types of songs – pop, old school R&B, mellow and some EDM.
So imagine my surprise when one time, I played a series of music videos and there he was – my tot who can barely stand but swaying rhythmically with his hands up in the air. I’m sure you’ve asked yourself, when do babies start dancing? Is there an exact age?
