Happy Customers are our best form of advertisement (Part II)!
Tuesday, May 26, 2009
Happy Customers are our best form of advertisement!
There were gatherings, grocery shopping trips, lunches and errands to be fitted into every waking minute, and Missy Raeann was out and about like a little dancer on her toes. It doesn’t quite help that she can now go from the lying position to the sitting to the kneeling (on her own, with no assistance), and eventually to the standing position (provided there are props like the crib or our pillows). She’s adrenalized these days by her new skills!
I couldn’t keep her still in the stroller. I couldn’t get her to nap. She only wants to transform from position to position.
And the only thing that can soothe the revved-up Missy is this pretty little thing I won from the Pupsik giveaway.
That’s when the world is not so topsy-turvy, for me and missy.
That’s when I can take a swig of coffee.
That’s when she leans in close to my chest, her fingers clutching mine.
Now, she even swings her arms endearingly towards the sling when I take it out of the diaper bag. I’m getting so dependent on it I’m awfully glad it’s such a pretty one in vintage toile print. My yummy-mummy-wanna-be accessory." Yuling

Mother's Day Sale
Smart Mom Teething Blings
Made from the same material as many teething toys, Teething Bling® looks great on Moms, Grandmas, Aunts and Caregivers but is safe for curious babies to handle and chew.Teething Bling® products are non-toxic, phthalate, BPA, PVC and lead free and all pendants come with a breakaway clasp. CE marking approved.
Hollywood celebrities such as Denise Richards, Ming Na Wen and Tory Spelling love and I bet you, so will you! My 6 month old Nadya and I luurve it, especially the colours and the fact that it doesn't look like a teether at all! I have had my fair shair of frustrations with kid-ish looking teethers that get dropped on the floor, mis-placed etc so this gorgeous wearable invention is heaven-sent. People cannot believe it whenever they see me giving these teething blings to Nadya to chew. My 2 year old also loves putting it on herself. The breakaway clasps on the pendant also make these safe for her to wear and play with.
We are excited to share that Pupsik Studio has been appointed the exclusive retailer of these blings in Singapore. You can now get your hands on the gorgeous donut pendant and bangle blings here and here.
In celebration of mother's day, we are doing a sale on the blings this week. The sale is while stocks last so get one today before they run out!

New Pouch Designs have Arrived!
It has been a hectic week for us at Pupsik Studio! With much excitement, we are happy to announce that our new pouch designs have arrived! Not only do we have more colours and designs this time, we are also introducing reversible ones for those of you who like having 2 pouches in 1!
While design aesthetics have always been important to us at Pupsik Studio, we never compromise on other important aspects such as safety, cost and comfort. All our pouches and made from special durable fabric with a slight stretch and triple-stitched together with one of the strongest and best quality thread available in the market. So fussy we are about the safety of our pouches that we actually sent them to be tested by an internationally certified professional body. Needless to say, our pouches passed with flying colours and has been proven to be able to carry weights up to 20kg without any visible signs of stress.
Stylish and sleek, our custom sizing also means that you don't have to mess with excess fabric or rings and buckles. When you don't need the pouch, all you have to do is roll it up in a small bundle to fit into your handbag. There is no other type of baby carrier with such a compact design that allows you to do this!

How to wear your Pupsik Pouch (NEW instructional video)
We have finally got down to improving our instructional videos to guide mommies using the pouch for the first time.
Cradle Carry (NEW instructional video)
Here is me, showing how to do the cradle carry on a (large) newborn baby. a.k.a Nadya at 6 weeks.
I consider the cradle carry more challenging, compared to the kangaroo and hip carry, as baby is still relatively small and fragile. The pouch is might to be quite snug when baby is inside. And especially with the postpartum tummy in the first few weeks after delivery, many mommies think the pouch is too small when it is actually the right size. We usually encourage mums to be patient when learning how to use the pouch but are happy to do an exchange, if required. Generally, a pouch is the right size when the lowest point of the pouch is 1-3 inches under your belly button.
As with all things, it will be a breeze once you get the hang of how to place and remove baby from the pouch for the cradle carry. Just remember safety first and always support a newborn's neck and make sure there is good airflow to baby's face. Also, practice when baby is in a good mood, not when he is screaming his lungs out to be fed.
The cradle carry is perfect when you need your hands free to do simple things like surf the web or go shopping! The snug feeling also helps calm babies down as it mimics the feeling of being in the womb.
Some Helful Tips for doing the Cradle Carry
1. Make sure that baby's legs are slightly crossed before putting in the pouch
2. You should have the padding facing out and the seam of the pouch at the lowest point and positioned directly in front of you.
3. The curved seam of the pouch is where the pouch is the biggest. Position baby's bum where the seam of the pouch is and drop baby's bum in first. Use the padding as a handle to help position correctly.

MomAgenda - second pre-orders this weekend!!
We are accepting pre-orders only for the mom-agenda desktop (SGD$65) and momagenda mini-daily (SGD$62). Please add SGD$7 to your order if you wish to personalise your item.
Some of you have been wondering how this diary is different and how it can be used so I managed to get a pic on the insides showing exactly this! As the layout shows, you don't have to have 4 children to make the most out of this agenda. The additional rows can be used to fill out important "To Do" lists for the day. Plus there is even a last row for you to plan your dinners so that you only have to go grocery shopping once a week!
Designed by Nina Restieri, the MomAgenda desktop planner keeps track of 17 months of insanity for you and up to four kids. Plus it includes pages for you to record things like birthdays, medical info, and school stuff. If you are interested in getting one for yourself or for a friend, please email me (email@example.com) soon!
