Simmons Paw Paw Salve (link to our original blog on it) has been restocked.
Very gentle, very soothing, you can’t go wrong with Simmons.
Completely petrochemical free, you definitely need one of those for your chapped lips, rough elbows and knees or any little boo boos (cuts and scratches).
The menthol version is a fantastic vicks vaporub replacement and a much more gentle and natural alternative.

With the current awareness of BPA on the rise, we’re happy to present to you the Silikids range of products.
Silikid silicone bottle Sleeves are uniquely textured (with little bumps and ridges and the holes) and so fun for babies to grip. Yes it’s a higher initial investment to have glass baby bottles, but just as with cloth diapers, it pays out in the end because glass bottles can be used through (literally) generations of babies.
Note that even with Bisphenol-A free plastic baby bottles – they must be thrown out as soon as they start to look scratched or cloudy. This is a sign that the plastic is weakening and will leach easier into whatever is stored in there.
Finally! Photos are done and all cloth pads (except 1 or 2 which… bugger it!) have been uploaded.
Quite pretty if I do say so myself
I took the photos outside in our new flyscreened enclosure in the Damai Bungalow – and the grass is looking very lush what with all the rain we’ve been getting. Rain’s not good for the flooding all over KL and also the terrible land slide in Bukit Antarabangsa
Here’s some selected photos and the relevant links :

3. Day Pads

5. Lay In – 2 part system pads
Cloth pads are a great way to save money. Not to mention extremely comfortable and not that much more inconvenient than disposable pads or tampons. It only takes 1 extra wash and dry cycle a month to deal with cloth pads.
Of course, using reusable products are always better than disposable, so not only will you be helping yourself by using cloth pads, you’ll also be ensuring our landfills are less full and our air less polluted.
One of the key reasons in favor of using Cloth Diapers and trying to avoid Disposable Diapers for anything other than occasional use (which is what they were originally designed for) is that of the Health of our babies.
This preliminary study finds that the gas emissions from the chemicals in disposable diapers waft up in fumes to irritate a baby’s delicate, growing lungs and breathing passages, predisposing the baby to current asthma like symptoms and possible future breathing problems.
