PITTARi Wrap Review with Discount Code!


What is PITTARi Wrap?

*An innovative PITTARi Wrap to make everyone possible to use wrap more easily*

PITTARi Wrap is an innovative baby wrap with waist belt. It is a compact baby wrap that comes with an attached waist belt and storage pouch. This wrap falls under the category of stretchy wrap. The Power Mesh material of this wrap is very stretchable, breathable, and cooling; so it's perfect for our weather.

On a side note, if you're not familiar with the benefits of babywearing and the importance of ergonomic baby carriers , do read up my blog post about 4 points to consider when you decide to babywear.

PITTARi Wrap is an ergonomic stretchy wrap and can be used for newborn babies (about 3.5 kg) up to toddlers of 36 months old (15kg).

Note: Don't miss the discount code at the end of this blog post. ;)


A Japanese innovation

The PITTARi Wrap is a product by Lucky Industry Co. Ltd which was founded in 1934 and is the oldest and most trusted baby carrier manufacturer in Japan. Pioneering the baby carrier industry, they are continuously improving and coming out with good quality and parent-approved baby carriers that are recognized worldwide.

What is so unique about PITTARi Wrap?

#1 - Compact and easy to keep & carry around

The PITTARi Wrap comes with a waist belt and storage pouch. Unlike conventional woven wraps and stretchy wraps, PITTARi has less fabric due to its innovative waist belt, thus making it shorter and easier to wrap your baby. After unwrapping your baby, the fabric can be rolled up and stored in the attached storage pouch at the waist belt, making it compact, neat, and easier to keep and carry around.

PITTARi Wrap = "Baby Wrap" + "Waist Belt" + "Storage Pouch"


#2 - Breathable material suitable for our weather

The PITTARi Wrap is made with Power Mesh material, so it's very stretchable for secure and safe bonding with your baby. This material is also thin, light, and breathable with a cooling sensation, thus it's suitable for our weather.

#3 - "Hip-healthy"

The PITTARi Wrap is acknowledged as a "hip-healthy" product by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.

My Experience with PITTARi Wrap


I start to use this wrap when my newborn turns four weeks old. I love how soft and cooling the material is when I wrap my newborn.


You can see how he sleeps comfortably in fetal position in the wrap, perhaps being reminded of the womb. This is benefit #1 of babywearing, i.e. carried babies cry less because they are happy! Benefit #2 is that babies who are carried often are healthier because by being attached to his mother, he's in tune with the rhythm of her breathing, the sound of her heartbeat, and the movements his mother makes—walking, bending, and reaching.


To go hands-free while attending to two kids and other matters at home, putting the baby in the wrap is the best solution. And this is benefit #3 of babywearing, i.e. comfort and convenience!


Here's a bum shot (babywearing lingo) with legs in (optimal position for newborns).


And here's another bum shot, this time with legs out (optimal position for babies more than three months old).


This is how the back looks like.


I can join buffet lunch crowd, hassle-free and without worries!


And I can also have breakfast and my cuppa teh tarik with baby comfortably sleeping in the wrap. Sleepy dust (babwearing lingo) is in abundance with this deliciously comfy wrap!

ZooMoo's Chinese New Year Paper Plate Rooster Craft Activity


Spot the two paper plate roosters! Aren't they cute?

Last year, ZooMoo Asia sent us a box of Thanksgiving pinecone turkey craft activity. For this Chinese New Year, they sent over this box of paper plate rooster craft activity. I love their creativity!


Materials and instructions are from the ZooMoo craft box.

Materials:

Paper plate
Red, orange, and purple feathers
A pair of googly eyes
Orange felt fabric
Red felt fabric
Scissors
Glue

Instructions:


Step 1: Fold the paper plate in half.


Step 2: Glue the googly eyes to both sides of the paper plate, near the tip.

Step 3: Fold the red felt paper in half and draw the comb of the rooster on the red felt paper and cut it out accordingly into two symmetrical pieces.

Step 4: Glue the rooster's comb to the top of the folded paper plate on both sides.

Step 5:
Fold the orange felt paper in half and cut out two triangle pieces.


Step 6: Glue both orange pieces on both sides of the paper plate to form the rooster's beak. Put a little bit of glue on the tips so that both pieces stick together.

Step 7:
Fold the red felt paper in half, and using your thumb as a guide, trace the outline of your thumb. Cut out the shape accordingly into two symmetrical pieces.

Step 8: Glue the both pieces below the beak to form the rooster's wattle. Put a little bit of glue on the tips so that both pieces stick together.

Step 9: Cut a small slit on the top back of the paper plate.


Step 10: Apply some glue to the stem of the feathers and slide them through the slit. Arrange the feathers accordingly.

Step 11: And there you have it! A festive paper plate rooster for Chinese New Year!


Thank you ZooMoo Asia!

Lactation Cookies (Lacteatkies) by Accidentalbliss


I'm a breastfeeding mom who's always on the lookout for delicious lactation cookies that I can dunk into my cuppa favorite beverage for breakfast, tea-time, or even random snack times throughout the day.

I have a two-month old baby with me and he's exclusively breastfed, so yeah, I need 'em cookies 'coz yummy cookies in my tummy make me happy and a happy mama means happy boobies and of course, a happy baby with a full tummy! Get the idea? So if you wanna come visit baby L, please bring me a tub of cookies. :)


And now, let me tell you about Lacteatkies lactation cookies by Accidentalbliss. Thank you so much mommy GC for contacting me and let me know about your cookies!

Mommy GC runs Accidentalbliss and she makes home-made, well-thought, duly experimented baking of the most mouth-watering and healthy desserts! Freshly baked by hands for perfection for all taste buds. Try is a must to experience the bliss of these heavenly desserts.

She wittingly named her lactation cookies as Lacteatkies. If I'm witty enough, I think the word Lacteatkies stands for Lactating Teat (Tit) Cookies.


See those Lacteatkies peeking at you from their pristine white packaging? Imagine they say, "Eat me! Eat me!" LOL.


Mommy GC gave me her Cranberry Walnut Lacteatkies and Chocolate Chips Lacteatkies. Both types were baked using Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. All other ingredients are organic except nuts and chocolate chips.

I prefer to eat these cookies by dunking them into my favorite cuppa, usually a huge cup of cold milk or decaf coffee. They are not very crunchy, but not too chewy either. I like chewy cookies but these are just fine too.

You must be wondering whether these cookies boost my milk supply? The answer is yes but I also follow other "rules". :)

First of all, milk supply is maintained if you stick to the golden rule of demand equals supply. As long as your baby is latching well throughout the day and you do not skip latching your baby (i.e. do not bottle feed), you will have milk. For exclusive pumping moms, don't skip or drag your pumping sessions.

Secondly, milk boosters don't work the same for everyone. Some moms may respond well to a certain milk booster but to another mom, it may be her milk buster. However, oats used in these cookies are generally milk booster because of its lactogenic properties.

Having said that, do eat these cookies! Eating your favorite lactation cookies is a great way to boost your mood and when you're happy and calm, you will have an abundance of milk!

How to buy Lacteatkies?

To order, please call, text message or WhatsApp +6012 654 2705 and/or send mommy GC a PM at facebook.com/accidentalbliss/ 

You can choose your favorite flavors from this list: Chocolate Chips, Cranberry, Raisin, Blackcurrant, Almond or Walnut.

Mommy GC requires a minimum of 5 days notice in advance; however, if there is urgent request, do call her to discuss. Some arrangements can be made.

Check out Accidentalbliss on Instagram and Twitter as well.

Accidentalbliss (Lacteatkies) is featured on the Featured Mommypreneurs section.

Note: This is not a sponsored post. However, I was given a packet of Lacteatkies for review purposes. All opinions are solely mine.
