Baby gear: My must haves list for Maysaa!

I know, as a first time parent, you feel like buying everything. Me too. I feel like buying everything and obsessed with my "to-buy list".

So, I am going to share with you some of the baby gear that I can't live without and some yang, I tak guna sangat pun sebenarnya haha





First of all, bath tub. For me personally, bath tub is REALLY important and I use it everydayyyy, from Day 3 (sebab day 1-2 dekat hospital) sampai sekarang (almost 12 months). Even pergi mana mana, balik rumah parents, I akan bawa bath tub. Tapi sekarang dah beli extra dah, so tak perlu bawa pergi merata rata haha.

I bought from IKEA, Lattsam Baby Bath, RM22.90. 


Since Maysaa dah boleh duduk around 6 months, senang sikit nak mandikan dia, dia pun seronok mandi dalam bath tub. I tak reti mandikan without bath tub :(

Second most important thing for me, is a carrier. Mine is Ergobaby.

This Ergobaby carrier. I bawak Maysaa merata rata. Jalan dalam mall, makan, lepak, naik MRT, naik flight, buat kerja rumah, everything and everywhere!

Cuma makan tu susah sikit lah, takut tertumpah atas kepala hahaha. Time ni Maysaa around 3-4 months so still pakai insert sebab dia kecil lagi.



Seriously having a carrier is one of the best thing ever. I start pakai carrier since habis pantang, around 40 days. Time tu baru kuat nak jalan jalan dukung baby. And dalam rumah pun I guna (although ada niat nak beli yang lain sebab risau kotor tapi tak beli beli. Next baby lah hehe). Masak, jemur kain, sapu sampah, gosok baju, semua I pakai carrier ni sebab biasalah baby asyik nak melekat je kan. I seriously will recommend buying a carrier kalau korang surirumah duduk sorang sorang or tak ada helper. Kalau ada helper atau orang boleh tengokkan baby, senang sikit. As for me, susah nak buat kerja rumah kalau tak pakai carrier. Kejap nangis la, kejap nak dukung la, tak jalan weyyy kerja. I still guna sampai sekarang kalau perlu.

The third one is, carseat. I didn't bought this at first masa pregnant, sebab rasa tak perlu lagi. Then, Nenek Maysaa belanja this carseat when Maysaa is around 1 month ++ sebab nak pergi checkup hospital.

Maysaa 1 month ++

Maysaa now, 11 months ++.

Bila I dah berani drive sendiri and bawa Maysaa jalan jalan which is around 6 months ++, memang car seat ni sangat lah satu keperluan. Sebab drive sorang sorang, handle Maysaa sorang sorang. Kadang kadang dia merepek jugak, nangis taknak duduk. Tapi biasanya dia nangis sebab nak tidur. Kalau dia tak mengantuk, dia boleh je main sorang sorang.

Cara I handle Maysaa nangis masa tengah drive, I akan nyanyi. Peduli la suara tak sedap. Lawan dia nangis by nyanyi lagi kuat. Pastu dia senyap lah sendiri. Kalau desperate sangat, memang kena berhenti tepi jalan, entertain dia dulu. Tapi jarang lah I drive jauh jauh. Kalau perlu sangat sangat je. Tapi lain baby lain ragam. Ada banyak kot tips nak ajar baby duduk car seat. As for me, I tak boleh and tak sampai hati nak biar Maysaa nangis lama lama. So I layankan je. And semua baby perangai lain lain kan.

Next, is the baby bouncer. I bought this from a friend. Sebab saja nak try, in case Maysaa taknak duduk.

Turns out, Maysaa suka. I bought this masa Maysaa 1 month, bila dah start merengek malam malam, jadual tidur pun tak berapa betul sangat. This bouncer is a real life saver. Nak beli yang automatic, tak mampu lagi, so I settled for manual je. Kena manually buai.

Daddy pun tolong buaikan Maysaa sambil tengok bola.


Orang kata, tak elok ajar anak tidur buai, tapi I don't think ni dikira buai and I really need this sebab budak ni susah sangat nak tidur kalau tak dibuai. Dari umur 1 bulan sampai 4-5 months, I totally depend on this kalau nak tidurkan Maysaa lagi lagi kalau siang. Pergi mana mana pun I akan bawa. And Maysaa ni kalau dia mengantuk sangat, dia akan menangis macam kena dera. So I kena jaga masa tidur dia baik baik supaya tak meragam. 

And this bouncer is really useful kalau I nak lipat kain, kemas rumah etc etc, Maysaa duduk atas bouncer je.

Tapi by the time dah pandai tidur sendiri, dah pandai duduk around 6 months, bouncer ni totally tak boleh pakai dah. Dah boring. So I simpan je lah, taktahu akan guna lagi atau tak. We'll see how.







I think for the first 6 months, yang betul betul I guna: carseat, bouncer, carrier and bath tub. Worth buying. I didn't bought any breastpump etc etc although dah survey dah masa pregnant, tapi I tunggu dulu sebab risau tak guna, and rupanya memang tak perlu pun. Nasib baik I tak ikut nafsu.....




How about baby cot?

Hehehehehe. Well, I bought em when I was pregnant, tapi sebenarnya.... Tak guna pun.

Here is Maysaa's room. Baby cot tu ada dekat situ and Maysaa guna time siang je, masa I busy buat kerja, dia akan main dalam baby cot. Malam malam, memang tak guna. So, I pun taktahu lah nak cakap, berguna ke tak. I rasa berguna untuk time siang. Tapi ni pun depends on parents and baby jugak. Ada yang memang guna baby cot.




Ni benda yang I beli lambat. Benda yang tak perlu beli lagi time pregnant.

Firstly, baby chair. Of course, tunggu dah pandai duduk or nak makan, baru lah beli. I beli masa Maysaa umur 5 bulan, bila dah start nak makan. It's from IKEA.



The recent purchase, a stroller. Yep, Maysaa 10 months ++ baru beli stroller because I rasa sebelum ni, tak ada keperluan. Sekarang dia dah berat and besar, barulah kitorang beli. Sebelum ni carrier all the wayyyy.


 Of course it will be pinkkkkkk :P

Since Maysaa is almost 1 year old, I am not sure apa pulak benda yang perlu dibeli lepasni. Maybe a bike? A car? Haha we'll see.

Thanks for reading!

  2. Sangat2 betul. I've a bouncer too. Guna time dia tido siang, but once dah pandai meniarap, memang kene berjaga2 nnt dia terbalik. Tp kalau bedung ok je. Anak sy still bedung until 5months sebb asyik garu2 muka sampai calar time dia ngantok. Then lg 1. Please choose the right stroller, jangan syok sendiri punya stroller. Kadang tengok baby duk dalam stroller sampai tergolek2. Please baringkan ur baby nicely dlm stroller. Sendal bantal ke. Kadang kaki terjuntai la, sian budak. For me stroller yg ada tmpt letak kaki sekali tu wajib. Mcm kita la, duduk ats motor xde tmpt letak kaki tu, lenguh kan. ���� apa lagi eh. Pnjang pulak. Hahahhaa
