I like this total tangle free “shampoo”

Posted by Everyday Healy on August 7, 2010

Initially, I love this.

But after a few weeks ……

Liz:”Mummy, I want my old toothpaste ( First Teeth) back.”


Liz:”I don’t like this apple taste. Too sweet.”

So, mummy tried once. It is very sweet. But, my teeth does not appeared clean and bright while using “First Teeth”. May be I should try other kids toothpaste. No more baby toothpaste. LOL!

On the other hand, I love this Koala Pals Tear Free Body Wash so much.


Really no pain at all in the eyes when I accidentally touch them with my fingers that full of soap. No itchiness for my skin too. Quite moisturizing I guess. I like the cartoon character of the “crocodile” on ย the bottle too. I am willing to forgo the playing moments in jacuzzi tubsย  and only bathe under the shower most of the time now. So mum said:”Thanks to Koala Pals Body Wash.”

By the way, I want the Yellow bottle “Koala Pals Tear Free Hair Wash” too. But mum use this body wash to wash my hair as well. To her, it’s good enough. As this is the first shampoo that managed to make my hair totally tangle free. It feels so smooth. ๐Ÿ˜›


She “pom pom” for Bear Bear

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 10, 2009


See… Someone is bathing with her this morning. But, not daddy or mummy this time. It’s her bear bear.

Mummy:”We go “pom pom”,k? Mummy asked her while she was playing with her soft toys.


Mummy:”How about Elizabeth help bear bear to bathe?”

Liz starts laughing and said:” Bear bear “pom pom”, she (means I) “pom pom” for bear bear, ok?”

Ya! Mummy bathe for little Elizabeth, and she bathe for the bear bear. Hahahaha……….

This is quite a good trick. Thanks to bear bear. As she really don’t like to bathe these days. It just ain’t easy to get her to bathe. She will only agree to bathe immediately when we are going out “kai kai”.ย  :roll:

Thus, mummy needs lots of good ideas. Anyway, mummy had enjoy myselfย  while she was bathing for the bear bear. That’s very cute!ย  ๐Ÿ˜›


Bubble Bath

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 14, 2008

Elizabeth just came up from the pool. Today is really hot. So, must let her cool down. Not only her body has cool down, it’s such a wonderful activity for her too. Anything to do with water, she always loves it! ๐Ÿ˜›

But, don’t force me to bathe. I hate hair wash! Ok. Ok. No hair wash.ย  How about bubble bath?

Er… Let me think about it? You don’t need to think, baby! Just have a look.


Usually, mummy already get her hair wash done, while little Elizabeth is still playing with the bubbles. hehe……

She loves bubble bath! ๐Ÿ˜›


When I get up from the tub

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 26, 2008

This morning, she said: “No”, when she is asked to get out from the bathtub. Instead, she wants mummy to get in there. But, It’s not my time to bathe yet. So? Don’t worry, a simple trick might work. :)

Let go of the water. As the bathtub almost dry up, little Elizabeth is calling mummy to carry her up. It works! Hahaha…… Just show them a few times of the sequences on how we should bathe. From getting wet, putting soap, draining the water, bringing them the towel, dry them up and dress up. They will get it real soon! ๐Ÿ˜›

And, she is simply lovely when she willing let mummy wraps her up with her towel.

How about that?

Great post! But, it’s going to drop anytime!


This is even worse! You will know what exactly I mean when you stands up, baby! Haha……


Babytub has more fun

Posted by Everyday Healy on August 19, 2008

Elizabeth has no problem going to bathe now. Her old baby bathtub came to save the best for last. Praised “Kakak”. My maid was the one who thought of the idea of letting baby Elizabeth to bathe in her old baby bathtub again.

Elizabeth is always chicky. Thus, she feels fun to squeeze herself in the small bathtub now. It’s her that chose to switch from using bathtub to a pail. Soon, she get bored with the pail and prefer to jump into the big bathtub.

Now, she gets excited with the old small baby bathtub again. Whatever! As long as you stop crying. It’s good to see her smiling and being playful again every time she bathe.

But, mummy got a new problem now. Can you please come up! You have soak yourself long enough in the tub. Get up, girl! Now!Hahahaha…….


I don’t want to Bathe

Posted by Everyday Healy on August 15, 2008

Baby, sorry ya… I know I have neglected your blog recently. Mummy is just too busy. Busy with what? Busy bathing for you. You always cry whenever mummy or “kakak” want to bathe you recently.

Mummy did put all your toys in the bathtub. And, it’s always warm water. Mummy even bathe together with you. Sing for you. But, you just keep crying. Why? Did you seen the eczemaย  on your legs?

It might be caused by uncleanliness of your body cause you never bathe properly these days. Either you bathe without soap or the soap can never be properly flash off. Can you tell me what can I do to make you bathe happily next time? :(


Let’s play in the bath tub

Posted by Everyday Healy on April 26, 2008

Elizabeth really love to bathe. In fact, she likes to play with water. The jacuzzi or bath tub is her favorite. Most of the time she will ask mummy to fill the tub with water so that she can play in it.

Once mummy take off her clothes, she will bag me to quickly put her into the tub that fills with water. At the same time, mummy will throw in some bath toys. And, she will sit in the tub and play.

Anyway, it’s best that mummy go in together with Elizabeth. As she will stands up and starts walking too. I will watch her. Just to make sure she won’t slip. She will also hop into the tub even if it’s empty.
Somehow, the tub is high. And, she is trying to climb into it now if there is no one to help her. That’s very dangerous. In this case, I think walk in tub will be safer.


Bathe with Huggies Cleanteam

Posted by Everyday Healy on April 22, 2008

I think most kids like cartoon characters. So do Elizabeth. In fact, Elizabeth likes bath mates such as “Winnie the Pooh and friends”. May be it’s time to introduce her to some lovely new friends. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Daphne Dolphin

Sammy Snake

Henry Hippo

Freddy Flamingo

Billy Bison

Carly Crab

Wally Whale


Together, they are the Huggies Cleanteam.

Elizabeth likes this short video. She will get close with all these friendly bath mates as soon as they arrived. As they arrived, it’s so easy for mummy to keep little Elizabeth clean too! Clean her hair, clean her body, clean her hands and her bottom! That’s really clean! ๐Ÿ˜›

Mummy just can’t wait to see Elizabeth smiles, laughs, dances and gets wet together with them in the bathroom. There will be wonderful bath time for mummy, Elizabeth and the Huggies Cleanteam. I can see that they will come in handy and make the potty training process so much easier too. Ultimately, they are mummy’s best friends too! ๐Ÿ˜›


I like shower now

Posted by Everyday Healy on April 10, 2008

Elizabeth used to love bathing in a pale. Mummy enjoyed watching her splashing the water, twisting in the pale and laugh out loud while going up and down in this small pale that normally people used to soak clothings.

But now, she prefer shower. So, no more bathing in the pale. It sounds easier as mummy just have to on the shower, then bathe her straight away. In fact, it’s tough. Little Elizabeth likes to move around playing with taps or bottles in the bathroom just like any other kids. The floor was so wet while mummy was showering her. Obviously, she might fall any time.

So, mummy feels so tense as I bathe her. I don’t want her to fall anymore. I got to watch her closely. And, mummy no longer can bathe her on my own. I need my maid to be around helping me to hold her.

Oh! I miss the time that we can play and have fun together while Elizabeth is bathing. May be placing the slip proof mats on the bathroom’s floor is the best solution. :)


Shower, rain drops, fountain and pool

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 30, 2008

Elizabeth enjoyed bathing together with mummy nowadays. I think it’s easier for mummy too. As mummy doesn’t have to change my shirt as usual when get wet. Also, Elizabeth feel fun. Now she is dancing with mummy in the bathroom again.

Mummy likes to sing for Elizabeth while we were in the bathroom. Mummy loves to see her dancing and laughing. Mummy also enjoyed seeing her walked into the shower. Elizabeth is so brave! As she saw mummy bath under the shower, she was curious. So, she just went under it like mummy.

“But, don’t open your eyes and look up, girl!”

I think Elizabeth is curious to see the water pour down from the shower head, just like raining. Thus, she will always raise her head high up with her eyes widely opened. That certainly hurts her eyes! :(

Elizabeth really likes water. She likes to swim in the pool, play with the water in the pale, rain drops, and her pee too! :roll:

Now she is even curious with the outdoor fountains as she sees them. Mummy likes fountains too. They are beautiful, luxury and soothing! In mummy’s opinion, custom build wall fountains are unique interior decoration.

And, fountains are especially helpful when the weather is hot! Even a small table top fountain can make a difference and help to cool down the surroundings.

This is special, attractive and cute! I am sure Elizabeth will likes it. ๐Ÿ˜›


No more rashes

Posted by Everyday Healy on January 22, 2008

I realized as the weather gets hotter, babies need to bath more often. For example, baby Elizabeth get lots of rashes as she caught flu. And, it’s not because of the flu. But, it’s all because normally when she caught flu, I will skip her bath. I will just clean or swap her body with wet cloth. Once I bathe her more after she had recovered, all the rashes are gone with the wind! ๐Ÿ˜›

In short, we must always bathe our baby to keep them clean all the time. In fact, I bathe my little one twice a day. The first time is about 10 to 11 am in the morning. The next one will be around 5pm in the evening. Yet, I will still swap her whole body before she puts on her pajamas at night.

Babies tends to sweat a lot. Bathing is to cool down their body and also to wash away the sticky sweats. Bare in mind the sticky sweats may cause rashes or other skin problems.

On the other hand, we must be careful with those body shop supplies. Certain body wash or soaps that are too acidic are not suitable for babies. Thus, I am still using organic soap free baby wash.


I fell

Posted by Everyday Healy on December 15, 2007

Now, mummy is supposed to continue blogging for my birthday party cause daddy is still waiting for my “stunt”. However, mummy felt so bad today as she let me fell in the toilet and hit my head ( back part) badly. Even though there were no bruise, but I cry like there is no tomorrow for about 15 minutes. Already break record. It’s painful! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Mummy nearly cry out loud too. She feels so sorry. As usual, mummy were bathing for me this afternoon and playing with me in the pale. However, I don’t feel like staying in the pale anymore after a while. Mummy feel strange. But, she never get me up. So… I got no choice, but for the first time I “poop” inside my “bath tub”.

So, mummy quickly get me out of the pale. And, she intend to wash my backside with the pipe water. Thus, she let me stand on my own while she is grabbing the pipe. End up I slip as I try to move my first step. Then, my head bang straight onto the floor. It’s like the sleeping position if you try to imagine. Straight away, I cried out loud!

Don’t you think mummy is too careless? Even though daddy did not scold mummy either. But, mummy feels terribly bad! :sad:

Warning: Never let your baby stands alone when the floor is wet!
