Dealing with Baby Products Online & Live Through It

Never underestimate the importance of sorting through process when you want to choose the right baby stuffs for your needs. Most people – especially those who aren’t familiar with it – often think that choosing the right baby product is easy. It is only for babies, how difficult that can be? Well, wait until you are given all kinds of different items and you have to choose the right ones, without being given the proper time to do the right research.

The Importance of Choosing the Right Products

Babies are gentle and sensitive creatures; you can’t pick whatever stuffs that you feel right without paying attention to their needs and conditions. For instance, you certainly would choose comfortable baby clothes that are made of breathable materials that are friendly to the skin (to limit the possibility of allergies or skin infection) and cute as well. If you choose baby clothes that are made of rough or harsh fabric, and you are positive that your baby will be just okay with that….well, you should have your brain checked.

When you have babies, you know that there are lots of going on in your plate. Not only you will have to deal with the basic stuffs (and still struggle with how to choose the right one), you also have to deal with additional stuffs. Let’s admit it, besides choosing the regular and daily needs like bathing products, soaps, or daily clothes, you still have to choose which toys are enjoyable and educational for them or what kind of stroller you should choose. Just be frank that dealing with baby stuffs isn’t as easy as you think; in fact, it is more difficult because it is about their safety and comfort. Spending only 5 minutes to choose which shoes you should buy is normal and logical, but you will spend more than that when it comes to choosing which shoes for your kids. It’s the nature.

Since comfort – as well as style and design – is very important for babies, toddler, and kids, it is very important to pay attention to the quality of the items. There are some brands and products that are known to come with all the right requirements: great and cute design with comfortable and convenient fabric or material. You only need to find those brands and products, and you won’t have to worry about your baby’s well being anymore. Moreover, it would be nice if there is one stop shopping for all those items. Sure, shopping for baby products can be fun and exciting, but it can be tiring and exhausting too. Can you imagine moving from one store to another, carrying bundles and wraps that are piling up every time you leave the store? After all, it would be confusing of which items you still need for your baby. You don’t want this scenery to happen to you:

‘Wait, have you bought the baby bottle and the sterilizer?’

‘Oh, not yet, we just bought baby blankets and towels.’

‘No, there are no towels or blankets here. They’re just baby jumpers and hats; we haven’t bought the towels and blankets’

‘Ow, dang. Now we have to go back to the store to buy them.’

See how things are easily turned to chaos?

How to Buy Baby Products Online Easily and Hassle Free

Again, buying baby products isn’t overly difficult, but it isn’t something you should underestimate either. With the right and proper planning, you can also buy the right products without going to that panic-ky mode. After all, planning ahead will save you time and money, as you know what you are going to have, and avoid falling into temptations of buying the items you don’t actually need.

Here are some handy tips to help you shop:

  • Plan ahead. Make a shopping list, so you know what to search for and you won’t be buying other products that aren’t within the list. Be discipline. Unless you are loaded, you need to really limit what you are buying.
  • Consider the items that you need and whether you need additional accessories or not. For instance, if you are into environment issues so much, you may not want to buy the regular diapers. There are cloth diapers that you can wash and clean on daily basis. They are more economical and environmentally safe. Or if you want to choose a stroller, consider whether it is necessary to have the ones that can also be used as car seat. If you travel quite often, such stroller can be efficient and handy.
  • Use your logic, not only your heart. Granted that most baby products aren’t cute, but it doesn’t mean that you should buy everything that you lay eyes on. Don’t do any impulse buying or you will be spending tons of money on the products that you won’t use.  Yes, baby headbands or hats are cute and adorable, but if you know that your baby doesn’t like wearing one, what’s the point of buying it, anyway?
  • Find a one stop shopping center that can accommodate your needs. This way, you can save a lot of time and also fuel cost. You may not realize this, but driving from one store to the others will not only take time and energy, but you are also wasting the fuel.

Reasons Why Jerseys are Popular and Tips in Wearing Them

Jerseys seem to be a quite popular part of apparel industry. There is a growing trend of people wearing Jersey, especially in the past 5 years. It is no wonder if the business is considered a lucrative and promising one, especially for those sports aficionados.

Understanding Jersey: What Is It, Anyway?

Kliksoccer.com jersey bolaYou may be wondering, what is Jersey, anyway, and what makes it different from other clothes, like T-shirts, polo, or shirts? Simply put, Jersey is top apparel that was originally made of knit with fitting result. However, today’s Jerseys are mostly made of pure cotton, or combination of cotton and synthetic fabric. Jerseys are mostly flexible (because of the stretch feature), insulating, warm, and come in attractive colors. In good quality Jerseys, they are comfortable and soft.

Why it is so popular, anyway? Well, in the past years, Jerseys have been used in many sports team and events. The easiest example is in football, where most football players are using fitting and comfy Jerseys whenever they are performing. The designs can be long or short sleeves. The flexibility and the stretchy elements are the reasons why Jerseys are used in sporting field. Since sports require you to move a lot, you need a fabric that can accommodate your movement easily – without you having to worry that it may tear or break. The stretching ability of Jerseys can reach 25%, making it ideal for sporting purpose. Most sport players like wearing Jerseys because (1) the fabric tends to cling and fit nicely, following the body’s contour (so they can show off their six-pack abs) or muscular arms and shoulders, and (2) it is flexible and comfy.

And the popularity of Jerseys continues to non-sport players. As you know, sports fans are everywhere and they look up very much to their idols. To show their love, dedication, and expressions that their hearts are always with the idols, these sports fans are wearing the Jerseys. Often times, they are wearing Jerseys that have similar designs and even numbers of their favorite players. Apparel industry sees this as the opportunity to market their product, and that’s why Jerseys are becoming important apparel for the sports world. You may not know this, but in 2012, the Jerseys industry was able to reach $5.1 billion worth – and that’s only in America. You can imagine how promising and lucrative this business is.

There are simple reasons why the Jerseys are so liked by these sports fans. First of all, the Jerseys hold very important role in connecting them to their idols. For sports fans, having the similar Jerseys like their idols somehow bringing them closer to their idols. It is no wonder if there are cases where people can be really furious or go berserk when the Jerseys are damaged. Second, the Jerseys are like the symbol of their worship and relationship with the players. Yes, it may be silly and sick for you – especially if you aren’t a sports fan – but that’s how the way it is in sports industry, and that’s completely normal. Without such connection, there won’t be any well-known football players or swimmers that will be on the headlines.

It is also common and logical that people would burn or tear the Jerseys when they are disappointed to a certain sports team, club, or player. Tearing or burning the Jerseys is like a symbol of separation – just like a divorce. And although you are very disappointed to your favorite player, you can’t really sue them, so destroying your Jerseys is considered as a statement that would cut off any relationships you have before. That’s how fanatic the fans can be, and that’s how Jerseys industry is making profit from it.

Tips in Wearing Jerseys

Yes, you may want to show off people that you are in love with a certain sports team, club, or player, but there are certain unspoken rules that you have to abide. Otherwise, you will look silly and be the laughing stocks of everyone.

Here are some basic rules that you need to follow:

  • Wear Jerseys of active players. Never wear Jerseys of past players. It may seem simple and unimportant for you, but it does matter for sport fans. If you don’t want to end up becoming their laughing stocks, remember this tip as long as you live. It is also a good idea to wear Jerseys of important players in the history, in recent times, or even hall of fame players. Choosing a club or team’s Jerseys is still considered ‘neutral’ since clubs or teams are timeless. But when you choose a player, think of this tip seriously.
  • If you choose a present player Jersey, you need to be under 40 years old to wear it. Let’s face it, seeing a 50-year-old guy wearing a Jersey of a 25-year-old player can be weird. However, if you are over 40, it is okay to wear past player Jerseys or club/tem Jerseys.
  • Only choose player Jersey that you really know of. It would be really stupid to wear a player Jersey that you have no idea even exists. It is a disgrace for the player and you are only making yourself look low.

Villa as Holiday Option & Things to Consider

When you are going on a holiday, you are given different options of accommodation and where to say. It is a common thing to stay at a hotel, but guesthouse or villa has become a popular alternative that is increasing in popularity.  Some people prefer staying in a hotel for flexibility and efficiency reason, but there are also great reasons why some would rather spend their times in a villa.

HouseinBandung.com villa

Villa vs Hotel

Yes, hotel may offer lots of amenities and easiness. You don’t need to cook; simply go to the restaurants or café to enjoy the meal.  You don’t need to make your beds or do laundry; leave it to the cleaning service and the laundry service. But what if you want privacy and personal secluded time? Of course you can’t find it at the hotel.  What if you want to walk around only in your pajamas or bikini? What if you actually want to do your own laundry and make your own beds? With those options in mind, it is better that you choose a villa.

Here are some benefits of staying in a villa:

  • It feels like you are staying in your own home. In a villa, you don’t share with other guests. It is only you and your family. It is like having your own family, but in different house and locations. For people who seek comfort and homey experience while traveling, villa is the best solution for their ‘homesick’ situation.
  • Villa comes in different size, location, and features. Some villas are more like a modern version of a palace, with more than 30 rooms, hallways, and even its private garden. Others may come in smaller and compact size, with only several bedrooms and bathrooms.  You are free to choose which villa you want to rent. If you were traveling with family, a decent villa with several bedrooms and bathrooms – along with the facilities and amenities, of course – would be enough. But if you are traveling with groups of families and you are planning to have parties or other events, you can choose a bigger villa with a special venue on it.
  • Villa is more affordable and basically less expensive than a hotel. Consider this: when you are traveling with family of 5, for instance, you may have to rent 2 – 3 rooms. Imagine how much you have to spend if you are staying more than 2 days – or even a week. But when you are staying in a villa, the total cost will be lower. Moreover, if you are traveling with groups – several families – the cost for renting the villa can be shared, so you won’t have to drain off your savings.
  • If you are a type of person that likes to do things on your own, staying in a villa may be a great choice. If you like to cook your own food, set up everything without the help of cleaning service or the laundry service, staying in a villa will give you loads of freedom.
  • Staying in a villa will grant you privacy and serenity. No other guests will peek on you or spying your activities. If you want to use the hot Jacuzzi even late at night, you are free to do so. If other guests swimming around and disturbing your laps, or leaving sweaty barbells or bench at the fitness Centre often annoy you, such thing won’t be a problem anymore. You are the king and queen in the villa, so do whatever you wish.
  • Often times, villas are located in amazing spots with beautiful view. They can be located in the rural areas, near the beach, or close to the mountain – you name it. It is truly refreshing and remarkable to wake to natural and spectacular view right before your eyes.

Considerations when Picking a Villa

Yes, going on a holiday and spending it in a villa will be exciting and great, but there are also things to consider. First of all, you need to be aware of the location. Some villas are close to the city center or a town; walking can even access some. It is important to note this since you may need amenities. In case someone is sick and needs medical attention, or your food supply has run out, you need to get easy and fast access to the nearest town. Some people may choose a secluded where, where the nearest town may be located 4-5 kilometers away. It’s okay to choose such location, but keep in mind that you should have the right means of transportation – cars, motorcycles, or even bikes – so you won’t be stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Don’t forget to ask for details about the provided facilities and amenities. Does the villa have swimming pool and fitness center? Does it have playground for kids? Is it equipped with safety protection like CCTV or alarms? Do you have to buy the food or are they providing it? Such questions should be asked before you sign anything.

Things You Should Know about Baby Care

How to Take Care of a Baby - Baby Care

Babies produce more heat than adults. Their body temperature increases in the first months and peaks, around the sixth month, at 99.5, after which it starts to decrease gradually. During the first year, you should avoid exposing the baby to extreme heat or cold. Doctors recommend maintaining room temperature between 68 and 72 degrees during this time, avoiding letting the baby become overheated. The rule of thumb for this age, as well as for smaller infants, is to dress your baby no more or less heavily than you dress yourself for a given outdoor temperature.

The exception: Babies should wear hats in cool (not just cold) weather, and a sun hat is a must to protect a baby’s delicate skin and scalp from burning ultraviolet rays.

By the age of four or five months, the infection-fighting antibodies with which babies are born have diminished. Thus, a number of babies get their first colds during these months, particularly if they have older siblings or are exposed to other children in day care. Although it is widely believed that breast feeding protects babies against colds and other infections, this claim has not been fully proven. To minimize the risk of infection, keep the baby away from people who have colds and other illnesses and, equally important, wash your hands frequently. Attempting to keep the baby’s hands and toys clean may be a losing battle, but is worth the effort, particularly when someone in the household has a cold or the flu.

The Growth Curve of Baby Care

In the three- to six-month period, infants continue to grow rapidly. The body’s fat stores increase, giving babies their characteristic and perfectly normal pudgy appearance. One of the fastest-growing organs during this period is the brain, which continues its development until the fourth year of life. The soft spot at the back of the skull (the posterior fontanel) closes by four months of age, while the soft spot at the front (the anterior fontanel) enlarges during the first few months of life, and closes when your baby is between nine and 18 months on average.

By about four months of age, many babies have doubled their birth weights. If your baby gains weight more slowly, there is no cause for concern provided the baby appears healthy and does gain some weight.

At three months, babies weigh around 12.5 pounds on average, and their length ranges from 22 to 25 inches. Between the ages of four and six months, they gain approximately one and one-half pounds a month and grow about an inch every month. Boys tend to be longer and heavier than girls.

Visiting The Doctor

During the three- to six-month period, the pediatrician should see your baby care twice once at four months and once at six months. (Depending on your own pediatrician’s policies, these intervals may vary). During these well-baby care visits, your child will be weighed and measured and his or her general development and health, including hearing and vision, will be assessed. To evaluate the hearing, the doctor will ring a bell or make a loud noise behind the baby’s back and observe the response. The pediatrician can screen the baby’s vision by shining a bright light in the eyes and observing how the baby blinks and follows the light source.

Immunizations administered during this period are the oral polio vaccine, the diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine, and the Hemophilus influenzae type B (HiB) vaccine at four months; and the DTP (as well as, in some cases, an additional dose of HiB vaccine) at six months.

How to Take Care of a Baby 1

Milestones For The Three- To Six-Month Period

As mentioned elsewhere in this book, each child develops at her own, unique pace. On average, three- to six-month-olds acquire the following skills in approximately the order given below. Most babies will do some of these things sooner than expected and some a bit later. Remember that variation is the rule.

Overall, though, the three- to six-month period is a time of tremendous development during which new abilities and awareness emerge almost every day. A number of thrilling “firsts” take place during this time the first laugh, the first gurgle, the first utterances that sound almost like words. Once a new ability appears, you may see the baby care practice it over and over again. On the other hand, some babies seem to back off and send new skills underground for a while soon after they develop. Either pattern is normal.

How to Teach Your Kids to be Independence

How to Teach Your Kids to be Independence 1

When children are young, adults guide and set boundaries. It may be a teacher in school that directs the children during the day, or it may be a parent that guides the children in the evenings and weekends. As the children develop, they need to gradually learn to become independent so that they will be ready to be on their own (when going off to college or moving into their own homes). This process should start young in the child’s life. Teaching independence is something that can be done easily and seamlessly when you know ways to incorporate the lessons into everyday life. Here are a few suggestions to promote independence, based on my experiences as a parent.

How to Teach Your Kids to be Independence 2

Picking Up

Teach your child to pick up after themselves. This can be as simple as picking up toys after they are done playing. Or it can be putting their plate in the dishwasher after dinner. These small things encourage independence. And teach good life skills starting at a young age. These tasks are parts of daily life and everyone should be capable of accomplishing them.

Riding a Bicycle

Another activity that promotes independence is riding a bicycle. Not only does it give your child physical mobility, it gives them a sense of freedom. No one else is making the bike move but them. It also allows your child to see and experience for themselves the rewards of hard work. They will discover that the more work they puts into pedaling, the farther the bike will travel.

Choosing Clothes to Wear

As your child gets older, allow them to pick out their clothes for the day. This will help your child learn to make decisions. It is only when the outfit does not match well that I make a suggestion. (Think camouflage print pants with a striped shirt). If they still want to go with that combination, that’s their choice. This not only helps the child learn independence, but helps them gain confidence is who they are and understand how to express themselves starting at a young age.

Picking the Activity

When filling the day with activities give your child options. Present them with three to four different activities and let them decide how they want to spend their time. This teaches them how to realize what they enjoy doing as well as how to choose what they want out of a grouping of good options. Try to focus on what they want to do and not have them throw out the options they don’t want. You want to keep the outlook positive.

Deciding What to Eat

How-to-Teach-Your-Kids-to-be-IndependenceWhen you go out to eat, let your child have a choice in what to get. Of course, you, as the adult, will have to set some general guidelines. For example, when we visit McDonald, it provides a great opportunity for choice. Allowing your child to choose the yogurt flavor and the toppings will give them a chance to think independently. I like to give my older kids an option of one large portion of topping or two smaller portions of two different toppings. They learn about making independent choices and see the results of those choices.

One of if not the most important role as parents is to prepare our children for life. Everyone’s goal is to raise confident self-aware children who know who they are and how to achieve what they want out of life. Teaching them to become independent is a gradual process but the rewards are great. Small activities like the ones mentioned above can start your child on the road to independence without them even realizing.
