It's About Time..

Since he was born, my son has been using his infant car seat cum baby carrier without failed every time we travel.

The first time Faaz sat inside his car seat..OTW home from SJMC :)


We did trained him and emphasized the importance of using car seat from day one. How we did that?? Every time we wanna go out, upon opening the car's door we will tell him that if Faaz wants to 'go car' (meaning: go out for a ride in the car), he must sit in the car seat and behave well. To some, this method is kinda crazy since he was still in his early days but what they don't know, babies are alert and their brains are capable to process the information although they barely can talk! That is a miracle that Allah gives them..subhanallah :)



However, we are quite flexible...usually, either before or after the ride, Fadzil will carry Faaz in the driver's seat and let him play with the steering for a while. And sometimes, he did have a chance to get a ride on the front passenger seat with Mommy, when we pay a visit to 7E or the playground near to our house. As he entered his toddlerhood, there are times that Faaz did throw some tantrum when we wanted to make him sit inside it (usually, it happens if the day before he got the chance to ride in his grandfather's car, without the car seat). But that is not a big issue, we just have to persuade him, entertain him and later provide
him with his toys/books...he'll be fine. Yang penting kena disiplin, jangan putus asa! ;)

When he was 2 1/2 months :)


When he was 7 months :)


According to the details, the car seat can fit a baby up to 12kg. Currently, Faaz is 10.2kg but looking at his size, I don't think he can fit in inside comfortably now..

His recent photo in a car seat...
sempit sudah..huhu



We wanted to buy a new car seat for Faaz as gift for his first birthday but until now we're still unsure of which one should we get. The ones that look comfy mostly can cater up to maximum of 18kg. With the price we'll be paying, feels like it's not worth it since I'm sure in few more months Faaz will reached that weight. The ones claimed that they can cater from the age of one to four years on the other hand, looks abit uncomfortable for him. Ayayayai...Apart from that, the survey progress is slow as I'm pretty occupied with works.


However, after going through an incident that happened recently, I believed its about time for us to get him a new car seat...soon!!

see those legs...muka slumber je, cover baik! :P

He acted as if nothing happened...BUT, actually he was pushing his legs from the passenger seat!

and finally...was trying his best to get out of it!

Faaz thought mommy didn't see it yer, haha..you were wrong, babeh.
Mommy knew its gonna come that's why mommy all ready with the cammie! :P


It happened on way back to KL after attended the wedding in GH. The next day, we did some surveys on car seats. So far, Daddy Faaz is eyeing the Recaro while Mommy is still quite blurr...hihi. Actually I heart Ferrari's...

Not this one,


But this one :)


The denim-look-alike material looks cool! :)


....but it stated there its for the age 3 and above. When we tried to put Faaz, nampak macam fit since Faaz is quite tall and chubby...hmm, dilemma, dilemma. Owh, found this on the net.. fell in love with it too..but not sure if its available here in Malaysia. Cute and stylo, don't you think so?




I got it from here and here

Its the World's Best Baby Car Seat with "chick-in-the-egg" technology...sounds very cool kan? Tempted tak nak beli?? Hihi.. :)




Anyway, Mommies, this weekend there will be a
Motherhood Expo at Midvalley Exhibition Hall. Among the agendas are product showcases and lots of activities and contests for babies and kids, mommies and mommy-to-be. I hope I can slot in some time to survey there or perhaps, tak payah fikir banyak-banyak, just grab one! Hihi..

Faaz, hang in there for a while k...thanks! Mommy cayang Faaz! ;)

Nadine said...

Mas,

Mmg dah sendat dah..hihi. Nak beli asik bertangguh2 je. Bizi memanjang. Sian Faaz kan..

Alhamdulillah, good boy Mikhail. Senang mama dia bawak gi jln kan :)
Faaz dulu pun behave je, dh besar ni akal panjang lagi, mcm2 strategi dia..hihi. Masa dia buat tu mmg rasa cute, tp terpk kalau la masa nie aku drive alone with him and dia buat mcm ni kat blakang tu while i'm driving...ish bahaya sungguh!! buatnye terbalik ke ape ke..nauzubillah.

cute kan??! aku tgk skali je terus tersuka. Fadzil siap suh aku cari kat mana available ;))

org cute cam aku ni kan, mestila suka pun barang2 yg cute!

muahaha!

ok..ok..aku gurau jerk. ahaks! :P



Nadia,

Ic..now dia duk on ur laps je la ye. Kalau you dont need to travel alone with him okla tp kalau kena, agak payah jugak kan. bahaya summore.

yes, comfy material dia ala2 baldu gitu tu nampak mcm denim. i ni mmg suka anything yg denim look. hihi.. :)


Mimy,

Budak2 skang punye barang mmg canggih. By the time u ade baby sok, I'm sure lagi banyak benda baru tau. Masa tu mesti u rambang mata cam i jugak. he he he...

Nadine,

Yes, i totally agree on early training on the importantcy of child seat.. Allhamdulillah, Imran has no problem sitting in his carseat, even better he's easily asleep whenever he's sitting on his chair.. so gak blissful :)

We bought Safensound chiara for his 1st birthday.. has no regrets over it.. cuma jenuh skit la bila nak pasang.. but i love everything about it.. have fun shopping!

Nadine said...

Anne,

Alhamdulillah..lagi best kn dia tido je along the journey. Imran ni cam aunty la..aunty dulu2 pun masuk je keta mata mula la berat je. Skang ngantuk gak tp slalu pecah ngantuk tu bila Faaz demand attention..ahaks!

Aaa, yes I ingat lg u did mentioned in ur blog. Yang tu up to how many kg eh? Hari tu dah pegi safe n sound OU, tp kebetulan ramai plak org dgn strollers bersimpang siur. Susah nak jln so my hubby kata pegi lain kali la :)


Lady D,

Nadia pun terkejut masa mula2 perasan tu. Dlm hati masa tu ckp asal la anak aku senyap sgt. nak kata tido, wide awake. mesti ade something. betul pun..hihihi. nasib time tu tgh main game hp. cpt2 turn to cam mode n snap. panjang tul akal dia! :)

kan cee d. cun kan? tp sure cost a bomb since dh dpt award world's best car seat :)

u r right..mmg lg kecik kene disiplinkn..tp izu dlu xsmpi hati dgr Zahin nanges2 nk kuar dr carseat ke stroller, mmg izu cpt je angkat dia..hihi. igt lg masa 1st time smpi UK, dia nanges gler2 punye once i put her into the carseat..eei izu mmg xsmpi hati then izu slumber je cuddle dia n sorok bwk jacket n tudung..kwn yg fetch ktrg tu bebel kt izu tkt kene saman...hihihi..kt UK mmg wajib kne pki..ni klu kene pegi lg skali ni tataula mcm mn derg ni...masa tu lah kot br nk btegas sbb tkt kene denda..:D Zahin smpi skrg dok kt storage btw driver n co-driver's seat..;p..Iris pon sama xnk dok dlm carseat..haritu izu fetch Zahin kt school mmg sblh tgn hold dia, sblh tgn lg pgg stering...huhu..tu yg mls beli carseat toddler tu sbb klu dia xnk duduk jgk kn dh rugi..tu yg en Hisham tk nk tu..;p eh sori pjg plak komen..:D

Nway, comel jgk carseat btuk egg tu tp yg Ferrari hok denim tu mmg cool lah..hihi..apa2pun, slmt mbeli Nadia..:)

Nadine said...

Iye ke Izu..alahai, nangis2 Zahin xmo yer. Faaz ni maybe sbb dari day 1 dah naik car seat kot, tu sbb dia ok je masa kecik2.

Masa dia baru lahir, at first mmg rasa x sampai hati nak biar dia duk dlm car seat. rasa nak cuddle jer n bukan jauh pun d distance nak balik rumah kan. tapi nadia kn ceaser. and pengalaman pertama naik keta lepas surgery tu agak scary esp bila kereta naik bumper ke atau jln tak rata. jadi nadia pk its wise to put faaz inside the car seat while nadia jaga tummy sendiri. mmg membantu car seat tu :)


nadia cuba bayangkan izu duk sorok zahin under jacket n tudung tu. creative jugak izu yer..hihi. nasib tak lemas zahin tu kan. takpela, nnti kalau kena pegi lagi maybe boleh slow talk ngan zahin since dia dh besar. and Iris..im sure dia akan follow kakak dia punye. nadia pun slalu je kadang2 rasa x sampai hati nak itu ini tp mak nadia slalu advice sometimes mmg kena kuatkan semangat n buat jugak sbb utk kebaikan anak tu sendiri. jangan risaula izu, sentiasa doakan diaorg sentiasa dilindungi olehNya. Amin. :)

Owh Owh.. Bagusnya Faaz ni, leh duduk diam dalam car seat. Oman entahla, hopefully bila dah beli car seat baru kat dia nanti, dia leh duduk diam mcm stroller dia sekarang.

Nuurill pun ada tgk2 jugak car seat ni. Woo.. Ferrari tuh mmg cun untuk Faaz! Ape lagi Nadine? heheheeh :)

Nadine said...

Ic..maybelah. New environment sometimes makes kids excited. Im sure Oman pun akan mcm tu sbb dgn his new stroller dia pun dia ngam kan? :)

Ataupun, cuba u keep some of his fav toys in the car. Boleh entertain dia kalau dia bosan2 duk duk dlm car seat tu.

I mmg dh terjatuh hati kat Ferrari tu..tp tgh pk2 lagi sbb it stated there its for 3 years n above. pastu pk, kalau faaz tido ni sure terlentok2. sian plak. tapi..kalau beli yg up to 18kg tu rasa cam faaz xleh pakai lama

dilemma, dilemma...kang susah2 sgt rembat both kang. ngeeee :D
