Selamat Hari Raya to all and I hope that everyone is healthy and loving the raya vibes!
For this entry, I have decided to share on how my raya was as a first time mum. So lets get started!
I have a 10-month old baby girl name Starla who is the joy of both me and my husband and we were
super excited to celebrate this raya as a family of 3. My babygirl alone has 6 baju raya thanks to my
parents and in-laws as she is their first grandchild and well also me because I just cannot resist all
the cute baby raya clothes! But the most important thing is to ensure that the material of the baju

her in the carrier and off we go!
As her milk time also coincides with her nap it was easy for me to feed as she was already in the
carrier and asleep so. CHECKED for milk time and nap!
At my in-laws place she has a whole 2 hours of play and eating time before her nap and milk time is
due. I have to be strict with her routines as this baby girl gets super cranky if her routines get
disrupted and the easiest way to get her to sleep is in her carrier.
**Photo with an active baby is so difficult!**
At the last house she got quite cranky as it was already passed her bedtime (she will not sleep until
she is in a dark and quiet room) but she just keeps on playing as long as there is someone
So a quick shower and a change of clothes to her pyjamas before heading home and putting her to
It was definitely a new challenge for me and my husband but well we managed to get through it and
we are super proud of each other!
