Cloth Diaper stater kit

So you are new parent and don't know how to start with Cloth Diaper (CD) . Yes, i was in your shoes before, totally have no idea on what CD is.

Here in Sabah ( Malaysia,Borneo), buying CD is quite expensive, especially the branded one.  So if you are not sure whether you like cloth diapering or not, you can try these tips:

1. Buy 4 sets of CD first.
Most parents fail with  this one. They tend to buy dozens of CDs and end up not using them. For a starter, you can actually use 4 sets of CDs, so you can decide if it's your thing or not. Of course you will have to wash it daily with just 4 sets, but it will really train you on using CD rite :)

2. Do not buy all the accessories - just yet.
When you are still in decision phase, just use the basic. No need all accessories like they put it on ads. Yes, they helps a lot, but only when you are fully on CD. Remember to just go with the basic.

3. For new born, please use the right size.
Right size for your baby is crucial. Most parents will hate cloth diapering because the size. Yes, size does matter. Use NB size for newborn, or else the urine will end up on your baby mattress, and you will hate Cloth Diaper forever :D.

In Sabah, there a few stores you can visit to buy your starter kit. You can try . They are located at Kota Kinabalu Sabah, and selling baby stuffs including Cloth Diaper.

I share the costs of my CDs i brought here.

Detox Drinks

Last night i manage to make myself detox drinks, consist of:

1. Lemon
2. Lime
3. Cucumber

 Easy peasy rite? Slice all, and put in a jar, add in water and refrigerate one night.
I drink one glass early in the morning, and take the rest to the office. The taste is so refreshing.

Will update more on this. Lets try first.

My journey on Cloth diapering :)

It's quite tough (when it comes to money) to raise a child nowdays. From their diaper, nusery to formula milk it can cost almost RM1K per month. yea no joke.

I am a working mom, and i am blessed to have my mom to willingly take care my little Surindi. She's too fragile to be sent to nursery. And ya, reading all those horror experience from other mom on sending their baby to nursery, it making me so afraid to let non-family to take care of her.

So ya, talking about cloth diaper, i decided to use cloth diaper for little Surindi. For starting, i bought 6 sets from which costs me RM440. And adding 3 pcs overnight inserts which costs RM90. So total for her first set is RM530. 

Ya it quite expensive to start cloth diapering. But for long term? RM530 for 24 months is about RM22 per month. The disposable diaper is RM40/pack for 60pcs. 1 month will need about 2 packs which cost RM80.

There it goes. RM80 x 24 is RM1920. Which i can save RM1390 or at least around RM800 to consider the water and detergent used to wash. 

This  is my first experience, so i can't describe much hehe.. but yea, i'll update on it from time to time.
