About RoxanneChia
Hello from The Skinny Scout! I blog over at www.theskinnyscout.com, on all things beauty, style and travel for the savvy jet-setting babe in you.

Like almost everyone else, I love fancy hotel stays and I miss Europe and California a whole lot. My guilty pleasure is a good fondant moelleux with a generous serving of vanilla bean ice cream by the side. Oh, lazy pool days are the best!

Friday mood. Who says you can’t mix baby stuff with makeup?
Friday mood. Who says you can’t mix baby stuff with makeup?
These days I’m more excited about baby stuff than makeup or clothes.

Bought these goodies and couldn’t wait to share my unboxing experience with you so my baby could start to use them!

Teether is from @littlebearnie and the pillow was purchased from @shopee_sg (Store name “Wihardjasg” @wihardjasg).

New on the blog: How Being a Mum Has Changed My Life.

They say that when a child is born, so is a mother. I wrote a post about what it’s like now with this little one in tow. Link in bio for IG fam! 💖

Slowly fitting into my pre-pregnancy clothes again.

Not rushing with the weight loss, though I did lose about 10kg in the first month post-delivery. It has kind of stagnated but I’m sure once we have the extra help at home and I’m able to get out of the house and have some exercise, the loss will happen again. Can’t wait to finally fit into all my clothes again because I really don’t wanna waste money giving my wardrobe an overhaul!

Finally restocked my supplements! Been taking the Nordic Naturals prenatal fish oil with DHA and decided to upgrade and get the Ultimate Omega one since I finished my bottle. And I’m also in love with the Blackmores pregnancy series of gel capsules, so I went and got the Breastfeeding & Lactation one.

I bought these from @watsonssg because I was in the vicinity (and also they are currently having a Buy 2 Get 1 Free mix-and-match deal, so it’s super worth it), but you can also find them at @vitakids_sg.

I don’t believe that you need many different kinds of supplements in life to stay healthy. It’s more important to have a well-balanced diet and active lifestyle. In a year or so, I might even stop taking supplements altogether - taking these now to help my baby grow as best as she can, so really, these are not for me.

PS. How do you like my new fluffy pink couch throw?!? 💖💖💖

Sometimes I wish we’d bought that nursing chair, other times I wonder if it’s really necessary when I hardly latch.

Nesting syndrome super high, wishing it didn’t have to take 3 years for our new home to be ready. I just wanna move in already! All new launch home owners, I feel you, especially if you’ve bought the house for your own stay. Our current rented place is really nice though, so can’t exactly complain there.

Next week, it’s going to just be me and baby, since Xav is going back to work. I’m a little apprehensive because when baby cries like crazy and I can’t leave my pump, it’s going to be a real challenge! Let’s see how it goes. #fingerscrossed

(Not a paid/sponsored post. I paid full price for this, and am writing a 100% heartfelt review.) They say people enter your life for a reason. And as suddenly as Auntie Ah Tuan came into ours, she has left today - it’s the end of my confinement period.

It wasn’t easy to bid farewell to her, especially after all that she’s done for us. Just recalling when she said goodbye to my little one brings me to tears. Apart from the usual testimonies you hear about @pemconfinementnanny confinement nannies (good food, taking good care of the baby and mummy etc), Auntie Ah Tuan has also formed a great bond with all of us, including my parents and siblings who aren’t living with us but visit every now and then, and our little one as well. We’ve learnt so much from her. Under her close guidance, we’ve both slowly gained confidence in handling our baby when she cries/is fussy, changing her diapers, bathing her etc.

We couldn’t have made it through the confinement period without Auntie Ah Tuan for sure. Getting up for night feeds must not have been easy for her, especially when she also had to do some housework, take care of baby, cook all my three daily meals, prepare my red date tea, prepare my herbal shower water and hand-washing baby’s laundry.

I can’t even do what she does. For all that, and also for the snippets of conversations we’ve had in between feeds/diaper changes/meal prep, I’m very thankful.

I highly recommend Auntie Ah Tuan (Sim Chu Tuan, #1519) from @pemconfinementnanny, esp for first time mums. 💖 I hope we’ll meet again in the future.

It seems like she has overtaken my IG account. 😂

I blogged about our birthing story, mainly as a record for Xav and myself. How did she come earlier than expected and why? Did laughing gas work? Did I feel the stitches? If you’d like to read it, it’s all up on the blog: https://www.theskinnyscout.com

Beware tho, it’s a long post with only a couple of photos.

Papa, Maman et Bébe

That’s what I thought of when I saw this installation by @studiozaven. It’s all I can think about these days, that we are a fam of three instead of just two, and how crazy, amazing it is.

Everything else now is on the back burner. My days are now centered around the little one, and of course we’re not getting enough sleep. 🤷🏼‍♀️ But when I’m awake, and when Tofu’s in slumberland, all I seem to be able to do is to look at photos and videos I took of her when I’m previously not asleep. Repeat vicious cycle. 😂 All the soft roundness - kids are meant to draw you in, seriously.

I guess I’d better sooner come to terms with life now because otherwise Tofu will no longer be tiny and we’d no longer be “starting on a new phase,” if you get what I mean. I can’t wait for the rest of my jamu sessions to be over so I can spend more time with her, instead of having to prep for the sessions and pump milk while she’s actively awake. (But jamu is so needed as part of my recovery, so I also understand that if I don’t fully recover from pregnancy and child birth, I will forever regret it.) Penning - typing - our birthing story as we speak, and I’m trying to remember as much of it as possible. It should be published soon, I hope, so watch this space for updates! 💖

“Hi mum, I want the boob!” Breastfeeding has been such an experience! Kudos to all the mums out there who exclusively breastfeed/pump for their babies. It’s so much work and not enough sleep - how do you even fit in going to an office during the day and be 100% pre-baby efficient?! #WBW2019 #worldbreastfeedingweek #breastfeedingweek

When I see this pic, I can’t help but think of... freaking milk ducts. 😅

My life now is simply eat, breastfeed/pump, pump/breastfeed, sleep, repeat every 2-3 hours 24/7. Xav and I (and our amazing confinement nanny) aren’t getting even 4 hours straight of sleep at one go, and it is so tiring.

Pumping and latching (eewwww I can’t believe I’m using this word now, it’s so... “mum” *cringe*) together is super challenging, because it’s so hard to find a good schedule/routine that incorporates both well, especially when the baby’s schedule isn’t fixed. It’s really mainly 1h of latching, followed by 1h of eating/sleeping/resting/shower etc, then repeat all over again. When I get too tired of latching (because she takes too long), we switch to bottle feeding.

I’m still in recovery mode from the delivery, so I have to constantly remind myself not to be too hard on myself and just do what I can. I haven’t bathed our little girl myself yet, mainly because I can’t sit on the stool due to stitches - and I’m just so drained by the whole experience thus far. I haven’t changed her diaper by myself either (Xav - and the nanny, of course - does an amazing job). But I’m relishing my role as the restorer of peace by virtue of The Boobie Milk. ✌🏻😂 Signing out,

It’s been a week since the birth of our little one, and today was supposed to be her actual birth date.

There’s so much to say but words can’t express what I feel. ❤️ #aureliesaynac
