Ever since Izaac's knock on the head, we had decided to buy the safety corner cushions to prevent another accident from happening again. Especially for Athina as she had just started to learn to walk. It’s easy to lose her balance as she is walking unsteadily. Another thing is that the design of our place is not very child-proofed. There are quite a few of sharp corners and all are at the knee level, which would be a “dangerous” spot for the little Athina.
Papa Tang bought some safety cover cushions protectors for the sharp corners. The safety cover cushions are actually quite easy to use. All we need to do is use the double-sided adhesive tape and paste the cushions at the sharp corners.

After pasting the cushions, Athina is curious about it and tries to pull the cushion a few times and soon the double-sided tape lose its stickiness. Although Athina did not knock onto the sharp corner, the others in the family knocked into the corner instead. I think the best way is to use glue to stick it. Or another way is to screw into it.
Athina had very bad skin condition on her cheeks. We brought her to a lot of doctors and tried means and ways to cure her rashes. Every time when her skin condition get better, it got worse again. Here's how bad her condition are.

Finally I searched online and get to know that there is a kids clinic nearby and the doctors are good so I decided to bring Athina to let the doctor see.
We waited for hours before it was our turn but I think it was all worth it. According to the doctor, Athina had eczema. And to prevent the rashes from developing, the best way is to keep applying moisturizing cream. The doctor recommended the Ezerra cream for Athina to apply. Till now, Athina's cheeks got better already. Thanks to the doctor's recommendation of the Ezerra cream.
I am still applying the Ezerra cream every time after bath and Athina had slowly grown accustomed to it and does not resist the applying of cream as the first time.
Here's one that with Athina's soft face.

For mummies who are worried about your babies rashes, try buying Ezerra cream to give it a try.
After the incident of the cut on his head, Izaac also had a lot of insects bites over his whole body. That happened on Saturday evening.
The most prominent will be his left eye and his right ankle.

Finally we had fixed up the baby crib which was passed back to us from our relative after we passed to them 3 years back. The baby crib which could be converted to a toddler bed was still in good condition after 4 years. The only thing that we need to get for the baby crib is the mattress. As baby’s bones are softest and growing faster than any other time, baby will need extra support for their growing bodies more now than they ever will later. Therefore, choosing a good mattress is important.
Here are some of the factors that need to consider when choosing a baby crib mattress:
1. The size of the mattress.
- The mattress should fit fairly tight inside the crib. There shouldn't be an obvious gap between the crib frame and mattress, and we shouldn't be able to push more than one finger down in between the mattress and crib frame. Remember to measure the inside of the crib and measure against the crib mattress. This is to prevent accidents like baby’s head, hands or legs to be trapped.
