Baby Ashley’s 3 month-old photoshoot @ Venus D’Wedding

Earlier, Colin has shared with you our little darling’s swimming experience at BabySpa. In that post, he mentioned a complimentary table top photo which came together with the swimming package we got for Ashley. Being like any other excited first-time parents, we wasted no time in bringing Ashley for her first studio shoot when she turned 3 months. That’s when we realized that it is not easy to do a photo shoot for the little angel. Although she is a active and happy baby, it proved challenging to capture her smiles and action in just one shot. Nevertheless, we were glad that the photographer tried his best to capture her cutest moments in still shots. As usual, it was a tough decision to select just one photo for the photo frame and thrash the rest into the recycle bin. Therefore, we decided to top up for an additional of 5 photos for our little angel and our rationale, as any parent would have was, ” She’ll only be 3 months old once!” We were really glad we did the top up when we received the photos yesterday as we were satisfied with the quality of the photo shoot. Here’s a peek into the outcome of Baby Ashley’s 3 month old photo shoot  at Venus D’ Wedding.

Ashley @ BabySPA

A haircut visit turns into an unexpected swimming sessions for Ashley! We did see BabySPA previously before Annabelle gave birth to Ashley while window shopping at Changi City Point Mall. There were thoughts but no decision made as we were unsure if Ashley would enjoy.

After trimming Ashley’s hair, we brought Ashley for the swimming trial before deciding whether to sign up the package. After seeing how Ashley enjoyed herself in the water, we signed up the 20-sessions package. The package also came with a tabletop photo which you have to take at Venus D’Wedding. The staff there was friendly and helpful, at least for the branch which we frequent. Other services which BabySPA provides are haircut, baby massage, sales of Korean-made playmats, beans spout husk pillows and etc.

And most importantly, it is cheaper than the prices sold locally! That’s after factoring in the 10% discount if you are a member of Precious Thots, the official distributor of Precious Moments figurines in Singapore.

A good example would be the limited to only 3,000 pieces worldwide figurine, “In My Dreams I’m Always With You“. The retail price in Singapore is $360 SGD and without the 10% member discount, you can bring it home at $324 SGD. Amazon is currently selling it at $171.34 USD with direct shipping (based on Standard Shipping 9-12 days) to Singapore at $17.70 USD. After conversion, it would be $250 SGD!

Review: Medela Value Pack Bpa-free Feeding Gift Set : New Wide Base Nipple

This is definitely one  accessory worth adding to your breastfeeding experience. Ever since I delivered my little angel, Ashley in early January this year, I have been faithfully breastfeeding her for the attributed health benefits. Besides letting her latch on to me directly, I have been actively pumping at a regular basis to boost my milk supply and thus the heavy demand for storage solutions. Therefore, I have purchased Medela Value Pack Bpa-free Feeding Gift Set : New Wide Base Nipple. This is a useful breastfeeding set that I have purchased to solve my breastmilk storage problems as it contains not only milk bottles of two different sizes, 80ml and 150ml, it also includes 20 Pump & Save Breastmilk storage bags that is compatible with Medela breastpumps. Now, I do not have to worry to rush to wash and sterilize the milk bottles every time Ashley finishes her milk or prolonging the time interval to pump due to insufficient storage space.
