|Malik to Izik: "I object."|
|"I'm sexy and I know it."|
We've been using disposable diapers. I know, sorry naman Mother Earth. But to be perfectly honest, disposable diapers are so much more convenient. We used cloth diapers for Malik until he was 3 months old. We had to change diapers almost every hour, which means his sleep was always interrupted. He was cranky. It was horrible.
|Do not be fooled. There is a disposable diaper somewhere inside that diaper cover.|
We used Summer Infant SwaddleMe for Izik. The first time we used it, he slept for fours hours straight at night, which is more sleep than I could have ever hoped for. We also swaddled Malik when he was a baby but we only used an ordinary swaddle blanket which wasn't much of a help.

SwaddleMe doesn't unravel no matter how fussy your baby gets, and so long as your baby isn't able to turn from back to tummy yet, it's safe. On that note, we've stopped swaddling Izik when he turned four months old.
|Incidentally, Malik's kili-kili is so inviting don't you think? Haha|
|Walang basagan ng trip, please.|
The pacifier also helps Izik sleep on his own at night. I think we will use it until the 6th month.
|We're off to lala-land|
|We got soothers from Mothercare. |
They're designed so baby's skin can breathe under all that, er, soothing.
