My favourite Ring slings

I promised long ago to blog about ring here it is
Here is my ring sling stash...and I'm gonna tell you why I have them all and they are so pretty!!

1. Comfy Joey - Spun Sugar

A true newborn ring sling. Made from an airy blend of linen and cotton, the single layer sling softens up quickly with a little use and washing, just like your favorite luxury bed linens. Love it!!

2. Mamapatch Shantung silk - Pink Rose (sold sudah)

The V-shape tail flatters you...great for weddings/special occasions.

3. Upmama hybrid - Raspberry Red (sold sudah)

The UpMama is made of soft, strong cotton sateen with just a touch of stretch for comfort. Hybrid means the benefits of the pouch design but has the flexibility of a ring sling.

4. SweetPea - Russet Koto

Its double layer cotton, because its reversible, quite tebal compared to linen of course but its so cantik, so I gotta have it!! hihi

5. Wrap conversion ring sling -Indio Scilla

This ring sling was made out of Didymos Indio Scilla wrap, Didymos is a baby carrier brand from Germany.

I have a thing with Didymos Indio..., for those who does not familiar with Didymos Indios, maybe thinks this just a looks like a boring pattern on a kain, but there is something about indio that made millions of wrap mamas go gaga over them.... I dunno what but it made me one crazy indio mama too.

6. Wrap conversion ring sling -Indio Blue/White dyed pink

OMG so cantik oooo!!! mine mine mine...

7. Psling - cotton candy sijira w/gold rings

punya happy si Gemma

Psling aaah Psling, the most luxurious baby slings from Japan, although it is super duper expensive, but its worth it....It's airy and breathable, supportive, comfortable, beautifully made ring sling and GORGEOUS GOLD RINGS!!

SIJIRA a traditional Japanese technique called Awa Sijira-ori (a method of weaving) which is usually used for making a cotton summer kimono (a yukata). The fabric is highly hygroscopic and breathable. Although made of cotton, it has cooling qualities similar to linen. You will be amazed that even in hot weather, the fabric breathes well and immediately dries.

8. Psling colors - sea green w/gold rings

I can't get enough of the gold rings!!

Storing my EBM

A couple of mommas asked me how do I store my Expressed Breast Milk (EBM).

So here how I store it.

Firstly, pump.

Pumping takes about the same time as breastfeeding, but with practice and a good pump, it can be as little as 10 to 15 minutes.

Then, store it.

I sometimes use bottle to store at the fridge, not freezer, because I malas to thaw it...

But storing at back of refrigerator EBM only best up to 3 days.
Here I'm using Mom's Precious 5oz storage bottle.

I always freeze it, because it can last up to 3 months.

I use YHAB Breastmilk storage bag... most economical I can find so far, its Pre-sterilized and BPA- free.

Here how the storage bag looks like....can store up to 8oz.

Mark the date and time you prepared the breast milk.

I usually store up to each feeding per bag, not all that you pump...ebm can only be freeze & thaw one time...and cannot be refreeze... and storage bag must be dispose after use...

Then ikat.

I use a tie band for wires to ikat the storage bags...this can be found at Daiso.

This is how tie bands look like.

and you are done...!!!

Happy Breastfeeding mommas...!!
