After couple days of browsing Mothercare and Ikea catalogues and surveying the price-wise through their online websites, i'd made my personal checklist by using Mothercare's checklist as a guide before went out shopping. :)
|Can you see the difference btw the left and the right? Yes, yg kanan tu smpi lunyai sy kejekan. So bila pergi Mothercare and Ikea, ambil lagi catalogue baru sesuka hati. :D|
|My Pregnancy Diary from Bounty. I lurve it fr the front cover til the back cover! Really useful!|
|The Mothercare Checklist which is attached at the back cover of its catalogue and my checklist review on the A4 paper underneath the catalogue. ;)|
Basically, not all things in Mothercare's checklist i need to buy bcoz some of them i already had/bought fr Malaysia like maternity and nursing bras..like a nightgown i prefer to wear wutever i got in my wardrobe..takkan la nak beli semata-mata nak kene pakai kt maternity/labour ward..Nightgown pakai utk hubby je la kn..;p
Ok back to the business..after comparing the price-wise not only btw Mothercare and Ikea, Tesco/Asda is also considered in. So that's why the a4 paper was there, i had categorized which things are worth it to be bought at Mothercare, Ikea or Tesco/Asda or even Car boot sales. The reason being of course, i dont want to be over budget..kene ikut budget hubby. :D
Thus, yesterday off we went shopping at the Lakeside shopping center. Hubby was kinda like to go there again, after all Ikea Lakeside sale has more to be offered than sale at Ikea's store around London. Mak buyung dah surf dulu Ikea mana yang sales dia lebih sesuai untuk kami ni. hihihi..
But before shopping at Ikea, we went to Mothercare first. dont worry bcoz i already planned what things which worth it to buy there right..Checklist memang penting, kan? Mak buyung stay up wat checklist, surfing and browsing aritu..Siap tunggu the Eins tidur dulu, sebab selagi diorang tak tidur, selagi tu lar tak boleh nak fokus. ;p
|See, 3 plastic bags only and all were in great discount! Total paid was only 80pounds. Macam 80 ringgit je, kan? Hua3. TapikKalau kali duit Msia betul2 huhu..T_T Tapi sbg penyedap hati still brg2 ni murah lagi dpd beli kt Msia. ;)|
|3 boxes behind are the important things for me and lil one. Yang depan pun penting juga, alang2 dah ada discount baik punye kan...sambar je la serba sedikit. hihi. Geram hokey!!|
Janji ada kan, yang penting misi untuk BF kali ini berjaya lagi! Amin. I hope i could fully breastfeeding Lil One at least until 2 years ++. My previous achievement: Zahin BF smpi umur 2 thn setengah, Iris BF smpi umur 1 thn 10 bulan. Alhamdulillah!
Honestly, this is the first time i buy a branded breastpump. Although i've breastfed the Eins before..i've never thot of buying one. Reason being bcoz i was full-timed housewife so i could breastfeed both of them at their demand anytime, anyplace which i really did! Never really try of BM Storing.
Sekejap aje storing masa awal2 bsalinkan Iris dulu, itupun sbb nak keje and pakai breast pump cap ayam aje..(i was a 6-months contract basis teacher) but when the storing mission fails, i stopped. Fail sebab babysitter tak membantu..babysitter dah berumur ni susah sikit bab susu ibu ni, dia prefer FM aje. And sy pun kurang ilmu juga bab2 BM storing ni. :(
|I also bought this. Avent Electric Steriliser. Fast and easy to use. One touch operation. It includes: 1x 125ml/4oz Avent Feeding Bottle with newborn teat, a measuring jug, bottle brush and tongs.|
|3 Phillip Avent BPA Free Feeding Bottles. 4oz/125ml. Clinically proven to help settle your baby and reduce colic. the Eins pun mmg guna Avent bottles since they born, trainee cup pun pakai Avent so memang dipercayai 100%. I like Avent! Hihi.|
Then we surveyed at the other children boutiques at The Lakeside Shopping Center but bought nothing! Agak kecewa di situ sebab banyak2 boutique kat situ, hanya beberapa aje boutique baby dalam mall tu. Pastu barang yang dicari2 tiada pula. so off we went to Ikea Lakeside. FYI, walaupun Ikea Lakeside tapi lokasinya bukan dalam The Lakeside Shopping Center ye...Ikea kt The Lakeside Retail Park..Wee, yg bestnya kt Retail Park ni lagi heaven, selain Ikea ada boutique Gap besar gila, Next, MotherCare, just to name a few..nanti nak datang lagi la. haha. Dasar betul...;p
