Rania's Sleeping pattern.

I am inspired to blog about this when I read Belly Obsessor's post asking opinion about her baby's sleeping pattern. Initially, I planned to comment on her post but I am afraid it will be long sakit mata dia baca. hahaha.

Since Rania is bottle feed and her lucky baby (Anya) is breastfeeding (I think exclusively) so maybe the info here will not be much helpful to her. But, I hope at least, there are something you can find.


The routine with Rania are almost the same with others. She woke up normally around 7++ every morning and started playing instantly with all "toys" inside her cot. Sometime she'll cry but we normally ignore her unless the cry brings tears.

Her normal days will be as much the same as other 9months old too. She loves to play and since she is one expert crawler, she plays a lot because she is free to move and play whatever she want. She always find things like under the table, inside the TV bench, cabinets, ants, laptop, holes, kitchen, empty bottle and other non-toys are amusing. I don't really bother to buy her toys because she seems to build her own definition of toys. She don't even like to ride on the walker but enjoy playing inside it instead. She crawl and climb, stand up and latest trying to walk with help.

Her nap will be around 9 to 10 am and next 1 or 2 pm. She will sleep 2 hours max each time.She has no feeding schedule, feed only when she is hungry. Sometimes I even forgot to feed her because she is so busy playing and I am a horrible mother. lol.

Her night schedule is much the same. We bath her before dark and SOMETIMES after dark. (ya, kami makpak tak guna). She will take a short nap again (half an hour) after bath. I don't fancy her sleeping long hours for each nap because she will be less sleepy at night. Then she will continue playing until she is done and will finally sleep around 10 or 11 pm.

She drinks 4oz before sleeping and normally will wake up once normally around 3am to finished another 4oz of her milk. The husband is normally the one who will wake up and feed her while the wife continue her lalaland. :)

For Belly Obsessor,

1. When she normally refuse to sleep but we both are fighting to stay awake, we always took her inside her cot and left her there while we both asleep. She will not be sleeping and playing instead but as long as we know she is safe we continue sleeping. Make sure she is occupied with "toys" and sleep close to her. In our case, we usually put our head near the cot and she will play with our hair, nose and even teeth. Talk to her even just "ummm" or "aaaa "while our eyes are completely shut just to entertain her. Before we even realize, she will already fall asleep.
2. In times she refuse to sleep and cry inside her cot, we normally ignore first. The moment she started screaming only then we carry her up. But then, when she started to calm again we put her back inside the cot. Sometimes this process continue for a while until she is either falls asleep at our shoulder or inside the cot.

3. Rania is always sleeping in the middle of feeding. and this is where the miracle works ~ PACIFIER~. It soothes her and helps her sleep. :)

4. We put her on our lap while feeding. Rania refuse to drink by herself because her tiny hands are so busy garu2 kepala bila nak tido. It's one of her habit. :)


But I personally thinks that pacifier works miracle. Since in her younger days, we gave her pacifier each time he woke up at night, tepuk2 sikit and she will continue sleeping. We seldom angkat dia bila dia nangis or feed her because we know she actually already full. Only when she still crying baru angkat/feed her.Also, we did not train her to be cradle while upon sleeping. It sounds cruel but it helps us a lot especially when we are both working.

And we also do this sometimes. Since she is now old enough to understand some little things. Kami akan point at the pillow and asked her to "bom bom" and we will do the same. We point at our pillow and start lying down when we say "bom bom" then point at her pillow pulak. She will come to us and play at first but after days of doing the same things she finally understand and will "bom bom" when we point at her pillow. baring-baring.. pusing-pusing and finally fall asleep with help of the pacifier of course. :)

I think what really help Rania sleep without constant waking up at night are her pacifier and also letting her play and explore as much as she can so she will get tired at night and also control her nap not to be too long so she will feel sleepy at night.

I can't help you with the sippie cup stuff. Nor on the breastfeeding-bottle training thing. I just can only share by experince. Hope you'll find something useful here. :)

What's actually inside the TRIBECA bag?

Janji mesti di kota. Even it is already 4 months late. :)
Puas hati? :)

Escort anyone?

Do you guys know that in order to get into the departing/arriving section at LCCT we have to pay a hefty RM40 to the police for escorting us??

Do you guys know or I am the only one who don't know?

And do you guys know that if there are 3 people who wanted to get in at the same time, those three have to pay RM40 each but there will be only 1 policeman escorting them together? (RM40x3=RM120=1 policeman)

Do you guys know or I am the only one who don't know?

More, do you guys know that the policeman will only escort you (escort=walk with you), but you have to do all the procedures by yourself and it cost you RM40?

Do you guys know or I am the only one who don't know?

Also, do you guys know that the policeman only escort you to get in the place and you have to find your way out by yourself but it ripped RM40 from you?

Do you guys know or I am the only one who don't know?

Finally, do you guys know what is the reason to pay RM40 for a shared escort to walk with you but doesn't even wait until all the things settle?

Do you guys know or I am the only one who don't know?

Whatever the reason, the maid is finally here!

Hello GSC... :)

Footnote 1: I am not complaining if it is RM10 or Rm20. But RM40??? Come on!

Footnote 2 : The husband hope that a sexy girl with a ponytail and smells nice is escorting. For RM40, The wife certainly hope too.

I tried to upload some pix tapi connection adalah mcm haram. Jadi, terimalah entri huruf-huruf semata-mata.

I am so in love with my layout.


But I just don't get the theme. A tent, hangover fish, angry beruk, and a toilet Whatever it means, I guess it describe me well tho.. crazily cute! haha.

Anyway, you guys remember that I once told you about me learning about financial in my previous deleted post? Besides religiously reading "Rich Dad's book series, I found this one blog that is quite similar with what Rich Dad's did but Malaysian style instead of American. I kept on thinking how to explain and share with you guys in my own style. I really tried and tried hard to post an entry about that but each time I end up typing and deleting the entry over and over again. Who am I kidding? I am no good in publishing anything with knowledge. My blog is full of crap.

So, I finally gave up and decided to share the link instead. I already put it at the right side of my blog~"Jutawan Hartanah". Btw, his blog is full of crap too but a good one~unlike mine obviously. Find the posts under "hartanah" and "kewangan" category. Maybe you'll find something. And if you guys are lost and would like to share/discuss any topic with me, I am so glad to do so. Who knows we might learn new things. Marilah kita sama-sama jadi jutawan. hohoho.

Saya adalah comel seperti monyet di belakang itu!

Errkk.. That doesn't sound right...wth

Sila tepuk tangan dengan kecomelan layout saya.

*tepuk tepuk*

Jadi dengan ini saya isytihar bahawa saya adalah comel juga.


NotaKaki: Kasya camne nak buat emoticon comel2 macam blog kau ek??? Kasi turun ilmu sikit?
