My birthday month giveaway

So in just a few short hours we’ll be flying off for our family holiday to KL and KK. I’m so excited but also a little apprehensive of any unexpected dramas we might encounter with this holiday being Nathan’s first plane and trip he’s first venture outside of Perth/WA.

I shall not be abandoning you all completely because as promised, I now unveil to you the details of the long awaited giveaway

If you didn’t know, November is my birthday month, and I sort of wanted to celebrate it with giving a little pressie to someone – something different and fun I guess.

So I’m giving away this lovely Pea Pods Pocket Nappy Set


The set comprises of a pocket nappy, a bamboo trifold insert, and a mini wet bag.

The pocket nappy features a PUL outer, stay-dry lining on the inside, and a double row of snaps. It’s a size medium designed for babies from 6 months up to 3 years old or 8-16 kg.

The trifold insert goes inside the pocket nappy or can also be used in a number of alternative ways besides just as a basic insert.

The wet bag is a PUL-lined drawstring bag perfectly sized to hold one nappy, or a couple of inserts, or several cloth wipes, or I’m sure you can think of other ways it might come in handy as well.

If you’d like to put your hand up to say you’d like to have it, head on over here to see how you can join in.

This is a personal giveaway and not in any way commercially affiliated with Pea Pods or any other related parties or organisations. It is simply just me and myself wanting to share some fluffy love. No strings attached.

How I use traditional muslin cloths as nappies

This post is for the benefit of my friend Stephanie who has recently made the decision to take the plunge into cloth diapering. She bought a few pieces of MCNs and is expecting a package of two dozen muslin flats. Although I've collected a good stash of modern cloth diapers, muslin flats still form a key part of my cloth diapering system. When I first started using this, I was a little dubious about the absorption power of this seemingly flimsy material. But it’s quite surprising how well it performs… and for such a small cost (sometimes free as these are commonly received as a gift from loving friends/relatives) it’s by far the most economical way to diaper a baby. The first fold I used was the traditional Chinese or Origami fold:

Unfortunately for me, I found that it didn’t hold up very well as my son is a rather heavy wetter and I had yet to discover the use of nappy covers. My other complaint about this fold is that the fold is not really concentrated around the main wetting area.…

An impossible cake

Every now and then, mamas  crave for something sinful and sweet… preferably with a touch of chocolate. Running after a toddler and breastfeeding a baby is really hungry work. I’m not really the sort of person who has their fridge and pantry stocked up with junk food and sweets. But I usually have all the basic ingredients on hand to whip up an indulgent treat when the craving hits.One evening I found myself longing for a bite of some chocolate cake… however being the end of the week, I was out of some core ingredients. Butter. Eggs. Milk. All necessary elements required to make a decent cake. Or so I thought.Then I found this impossible recipe. A cake with no butter, eggs and milk. They’re calling it Crazy Cake. Because you have to be crazy NOT to try it.It’s soooo easy to make, no creaming butter and sugar or electric mixers required. Apparently it can even be mixed together straight in the baking pan, no bowls necessary.Crazy CakeIngredients
1 1/2 cups plain flour

The fluffiest 7-up pancakes

So since our days of just the two of us, one of our favourite Saturday morning routines is to enjoy a slow leisurely breakfast together as a family.Sometimes we have french toast, or oatmeal porridge, or scrambled eggs and sausages, or  egg and toast muffins or homemade bacon and egg mcmuffins, or the classic favourite… Pancakes!I’m a big fan of Macdonald’s hotcakes. I just find their texture so irresistibly fluffy and light. I’ve tried numerous times to re-create the same fluffiness in my homemade pancakes but always to no avail… until recently when I discovered a magic ingredient… 7-up!And best of all, this simple recipe falls under my four ingredients category! So here’s the recipe…Super light and fluffy 7-Up pancakesIngredients
