My Wedding

hmmm it's time to survey baby stuff....

oh i realise it's been soooo long since my last entry.....hehehe....

well first of all, Alhamdulillah i'm in my 2nd trimester now...

first trimester...hmm was very challenging, somehow I was one of those unlucky ones...my morning sickness was rather bad...actually i was feeling sick, vomiting and nausea all day long...at one time it became so bad, i was sooo dehydrated sampai kena admitt to the hospital for drip....I started muntah from week 6, and sambung sampai week 16...only the last 3 weeks muntah dah reda...so far once a week je muntah...only if i betul2 eat something wrong....

but no surpirse actaully....my whole family from my grandmother to my sisters semua pun went through bad morning sickness, so Alhamdulillah i had a lot of support from my family....

Alhamdulillah now i'm feeling a lot better....so yes, now of course it's time to start surveying for baby things....

the other thing that i want to be thankful for is actually, on baby stuff...i have mashaAllah generous sisters that are willing to share with me so many things, that i can cancel half of the things that i need to prepare for the new born baby nanti ...inshaAllah.....

ok first survey that i would like to share on is baby stroller...for myself, because i have experience taking care of my anak-anak sedara, so my survey is more on my personal experience...

1) the stroller has to be light weight ; yes it's ok if our husbands are around all the time to help us carry the stroller, but in reality of course that is not the case....hehee...my maximum limit is 10kgs..anything heavier that that is a no no....and the weight has to be balance jugak..i have to make sure, when i carry the baby out, the stroller cannot topple, if i have my diaper bag at the handles...yes girls, some stroller ringan sgt sampai it can topple when you carry the baby out , if ada beg sangkut dekat the handle...

2) is has to be able to accommodate from new born to 3/4 years old ; For me it is very important that the stroller boleh recline full sampai baring position...while many assumes that full recline is only for newborn, but i can tell you now even when they are 3 years old, the full recline is useful for when they want to sleep while you are busy shopping or makan..hehehe...a happy sleeping baby/toddler = happy parents to shop with peace of mind...

3) it has to fold, umbrella fold ; the folding is very important so you have a lot of boot space in the car....sometimes me and my sisters all go out together..believe it or not, we will bring 3 strollers with us...nasib baik all the stollers folds very well & slim, so we can fit them comfortably in the car boot....

4) i have to be able to fold the stroller with 1 hand ; this criteria is actually very very tricky......byk stroller umbrella fold, but not many yang can fold with 1 hand...the rest all kena baringkan the stroller on the floor first, then carry it up....while some people don't mind this, but to me this folding method is very very very important....sebab mashaAllah senangnya when it folds with one hand, so you dont have to bongkok your back so much to carry the stroller to masuk the car boot...

5) it has to be a 4 wheeler ; while i  know its a trend now to have a 3 wheeler, but for myself i'm very old school...hehe..i like 4 wheelers..sebab  they fold smaller, and the most important thing, because it has 4 wheels, the lebar of the stroller is smaller then the 3 wheelers...3 wheelers kena lebar, to keep balance to the stroller...u see if the stroller is lebar, it is very hard to maneuver around the shopping malls, and grocery store, wedding halls and esp restaurants..leceh nanti langgar sana-langgar sini, kesian k.......and the most important thing is that, 4 wheelers are cheaper than 3 wheelers....

hehehe...so far, those are my top criteria in buying a stroller...and of course having said all these..i only have 1 brand in mind...heheh...and the winner is



During those years that i jaga babies full time...i manage to guna peg perego, Mclaren, bugaboo and maxi-cosy/quinny combo...my fav. is definitely the peg perego stroller....

here i've uploaded a youtube video, then you will know what i mean by 1 hand folding....




so yes inshaAllah this is the stroller that i want to get...but not now, i nak tunggu beli masa 6 months pregnant nanti inshaAllah sometime in December...hopefully there are some good year end sale so i can buy it with a good bargain....

till my next survey...hehehe....

wassalam,

sabby

hey you.
i had the same thought as you and i'm really looking forward for peg prego strollers. I'm in my 17 weeks now. Baru last weekend i pegi check2 and the sales person told me nanti kat mid valley ada baby stuff on sale somewhere mid November. kalau tak silap, 18-20 november.

I'm a big stroller geek & i actually talked abit about strollers on my FB a few weeks back.

The Pliko P3 is very nice, go for it if you have the budget. Its really good for ladies who love to sangkut shopping bags on the handles as it wont tip over. Also the basket is easily accessible.

I use the Maclaren Techno XT. Alhamdulillah mariam's aunty was generous & covered the cost of ours, plus we had a 20% discount voucher for it. Its perfect for my needs & senang muat in the small Myvi boot despite being a full size stroller. But for sangkut2 bags its not good coz its too lightweight for that.

The bugaboos etc are nice but i feel they're are too mahal when u consider that many kids will spend alot of time walking instead of staying put in the stroller. Hence paying rm2k++ for one is way out of my range.

yaya: alhamdulillah i feel better now...but sadly, still ada jugak muntah kalau salah makan, even now at 5 months...

sofia: thank you, me too tak sabar nak tgk baby nanti..hehee

little tots: would love to buy it in Singapore, even my sis says its cheaper there, but me and hubby calculated to cost to beli kat sana + transportation and accommodation, nanti jadi same price pulak...and I also tak larat nak go holiday in singapore masa pregnant ni..byk sgt jalan kalau pergi sana..ehehe...

ieta: alahamduillah..thank you

hajar:yay, nanti next week i can try see kat megamall pulak..thanks for the info...'

ederq: kan, sabby pun makan jambu je tiap2 hari..nasib baik now dah ok alhamdulillah..tapi still muntah sikit sikit tu ada lagi...

alena:mmg mencabar sgt, masa teruk tu sampai tak larat nak jalan, tu yang kat hospital terus bagi drip..lepas tu baru rasa ok sikit...

shima: so far the chepest i found on this online website lilwhiz its around RM 1288..but i will survey more and keep it updated at my blog..we are still looking for the cheapest around..

hanie: hani, sempat lagi comment tgh pantang ni..hehe.i hope baby sihat alhamdulillah...tulah sekarang alhamdulillah baru senyum2..masa muntah2 dulu senyum pun tak boleh, sebab sedih sgt time tu..

daniel: yes thats what happened to us, my sisters maclaren stroller always topple when we hang our stuff, that is why i decided on peg perego...but yes i cannot deny the maclaren is lighter..but i love to hang stuff on the stroller,the diaper bag and shopping stuff....both my sis are using peg perego, both are very happy with them, and yes its soo much cheaper than the bugaboo and quinny+maxy cosy stroller....

Hi sab..mestilah i ingat u....im your silent reader for quite long tau..hihihi...
Im happy with peg perego cuma bulky sket lar....and it's been difficult for me to open it if im travelling alone with baby...berat... hihihi..
Actually i bought it kat Italy..cost me around RM1200 only..if p3 only rm800..Piko switch has reversable function jer..but im happy cuz i prefer yang tahan lasak!! Later i review in my blog ya!!!
ps : Next year honda gi italy..boleh pesan....hihihi..

Azwa said...
