Tommee Tippee for baby and you

I don't have children of my own right now, but I do look forward to the time when I do and I'm learning all I can by being an observer of my close friends and their babies. I'm quite lucky in the sense that their children are close in age - all under two right now - so I sometimes join in the mommies group as they trade tips and tricks on bringing up baby.

One of the hot topics in the beginning was breastfeeding. I now know that it's a tough challenge to want to breastfeed your baby as long as possible and even more so when you're a working mother. Their stories of trying to find time to express milk in the office have made me think twice about what I want to do when the time comes, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Then after the breastfeeding time there has to be a time of weaning and that's another huge responsibility for mommy. The transition from a purely milk diet to semi-solids and then solids can be a trying time for some, like my friend whose daughter seems to prefer milk over any kinds of solids. I do believe she's tried nearly every trick in the book - from tricking her baby with different types of food and tastes to cajoling and even buying pretty cute bibs and cutleries to tempt her toddler to eating instead of demanding for milk.


I personally like the Tommee Tippee range of cute bibs and sipper cups and the toddler weaning kit seems to be the perfect pressie for the special little one in your life. Why Tommee Tippee? Well, they've been UK's leading baby accessories brand from over 50 years and hey, I used stuff from them when I was a babe too. It's a pity that it isn't more readily available in Malaysia, but if you can get your hands on 'em elsewhere, I'd definitely recommend you do so.

Malaysia Year End Sale (2007)

We (Malaysia) wanna be known as a better shopping paradise than our Northern and Southern neighbours so we have nationwide sales thrice yearly. Of course, we must end the year with a big bang, so some brilliant chap came out with the Malaysia Year End Sale (2007 edition). That is great news for locals and tourists alike because that means sales, sales and more sales. And sales mean discounts! *grin*

Beyond the normal sales discounts, tourists can get additional privileges by showing their passports and selected shopping malls will have later closing hours. So shopoholics, get your shoes and wallets ready and shop til you drop!
