I continued to notice a significant difference to my sensitive and easily dehydrated skin (too much air conditioning!) after trying a few other products from their range for dry skin (including the Antioxidant Hydrating Mask and the Antioxidant Hydrating Cream). I would highly recommend Henry Tianus to any person looking for a good skincare range.

I have been looking around for great looking onesies for our online store for the longest time when my prayers were answered by Belle & Dean. They had everything I was looking for in a cotton onesie. Comfort, design, versatility and affordability.
Made from organic cotton that is unbleached and undyed, these 100% organic cotton onesies are suitable for both boys and girls from newborn-24mths throughout the year. All Belle & Dean clothes are designed in-house. Their special prints, mostly of endangered animals and plants, are hand-drawn by Belle & Dean's co-founder, Issy, and screen printed by hand with environmentally friendly water-based ink to give a wonderfully soft and subtle finish.
Pupsik Studio is proud to retail Belle & Dean's most popular line of organic onesie at our online store here. Do feel free to shop around for more designs available in our store and contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions about this product!

Despite it being too tight (it's meant for me, you see! :p).
We get stares one too many,
But he says, "Let it be".
So we go romping about town,
With Raeann snug in our pouch.
Like a joey safe and sound.
That's why we love Pupsik,Warm and pretty and so lovely!
Our third winner is from Josie Quak carrying Jey. Josie actually took the time to submit her pictures in the form of a collage to share how the pouch has been a part of Jey's life! The collage is lovingly entitled "Pouch Story".

Clothkits make it easy for you to make beautiful quality, well designed clothes without the fuss of paper patterns. All the cutting lines are printed directly on the fabric in a simple format that means even the inexperienced can make garments with ease. In addition to the fabric, their kits contain all you need to complete the project - thread, buttons (or any other necessary haberdashery, and of course well illustrated instructions to guide you through the project.
(Below) Tata! What the finished product should look like.
And if you really cannot handle it, you can simply get it ready off the shelf with the click of your mouse. Neat!

Despite everything over the past week, I am grateful to have a pocket of time this morning just to sit down for my quiet time and give thanks to God for all He has given me. At times like this, it is just so easy to be distracted and suck oneself into self-pity and self-absorption in our own little world and forget about all that He has so freely given us; Food, a home, a healthy body, loved ones...things we often take for granted.
While browsing through some of my favourite Christian blogs and website this morning, I am reminded of the verse in I Thessalonians 5:18 which says,
I know that there are many mommies out there going through the same lack of sleep and adjustments as myself and I just want to say "Hang on"! Here is a little something I have been listening to this morning that I would like to share with you and hope you will be able to seek comfort in.

We have finally got down to improving our instructional videos to guide mommies using the pouch for the first time.
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.
