Hair loss after having the baby? I have that issue too but I think it's better now.

I am sure a lot of moms have that issue too.  HAIR LOSS!!!  I still remember, when I was younger, I use to dislike my hair, I use to think it's to "bushy" and every time, I've got to tell the hair dresser to somehow reduce some hair.  After having babies, I am so thankful that when I was younger, I had the bushy hair because I've lost so much hair and if I started off with very little hair, I would be bald.

I notice that I usually lose a lot more hair a few months after having my boys.  Though, I do notice that the hair dropping issue is less too.  I guess part of the reason is because I guess the hormones are all normal now but I have talked to several people and hair dresses for their advises.

Here are some tips, hopefully it will help some moms out there who are going crazy with the newborn, sleep patterns, etc.

1) Use baby shampoo - I have switched from all other brands to my son's baby shampoo.  I read a lot and some people also mention that the baby shampoo have less chemicals in them, no scent, etc and since it is so mild, it is gentle on the hair.  Try using them for a long period of time instead of the normal adult's shampoo.  OR, the other option is to use the horse shampoo - Mane N Tail is one of them that I have tried as well and I think they are pretty good.

2)  Conditioner - Only apply the conditioner starting the half length of the hair.  Do not start from the top/ roots.  According to one of the hair dresser that I talked to, she told me that a lot of times, the conditioner clogs the roots of the hair causing the hair to not grow.

3)  Drying your hair - I always blow dry my hair and thought that the hotter the heat is, the faster and better it is and again, this is another thing that I was told not to do.  According to them, the heat would cause the old to develop and then clog the roots of the hair again.  So, what I do now is I use low heat or just air to blow the top of my hair and switch it to hot again to blow the rest of the hair.

4)  Gentle combing - Try not to brush your hair too hard, it will break the hair and try to brush it to the minimal.

I hope the advise would help some of the new moms out there who are freaking out wondering what's going on and will their hair ever grow back?

Good Luck!

Pros and Con of using Mama Cloths

.Lately, we notice that there are increasing demand in our Mama Cloth.  So, we did some research to help share benefits or pros and con of using Mama Cloth and especially our BubuBibi Bamboo Mama Cloths.  Most of them last about 2 hours for the regular pads but it is pretty much the same for the disposables as well.

Here are the Pros and the Cons.


1) Less Period -  According to a lot of people (No supporting facts, sorry), a lot of people claim that they have less period using the Mama Cloths as compared to the tampon or the disposable sanitary pads.  According to most of them, it says that it is because the body is receiving less chemicals.  Again, there are no supporting facts, just reviews from our customers.

2) Cost saving - We go through many pads each cycle but with the reusable mama cloth, we can now rewash them over and over again and in the long run, it does save some $$$.

3)  Go Green - Environmentally friendly.  We throw billions of sanitary napkins into the landfil.  Instead, we can go green and be a little more environmentally friendly.

4) Comfortable - These mama cloth are made with soft bamboo rayon, they are the same material used for our cloth diapers used on our babies.  Unlike the plastic pads, they are not sticky and crinkly or the tampons that hurts for some people.

5) Less smell, sweat - The cloth absorb even the sweat from us but it is harder for plastic to do that.  Due to that, it reduces the smell as well.  Not all people experience this but some do.

6) Cute Prints - Just like the underwear, there are some really cute prints that comes with it.


1) Laundry - Most people prefers to wash the mama cloth separately and it takes many to wash a load or we'll have to wash smaller loads.

2) More initial investment - Each pad can cost anywhere between $3-8 each depending on the brand and we need quite a bit to start, therefore, the initial investment would cost more.

3) More work - Unlike the disposables, you just toss it out but you need to wash the mama cloth.

With that being said, I guess it really depends on the preference and what works.  Some people actually does both, just like cloth diaper.  When they are home or at work, they just use the mama cloth and when they are out, they use disposables.  So, hopefully the about would give you more ideas about what works for you.

If you are worry about the bulkiness, please do not worry, here are the pictures to show you the comparison between disposables and the BubuBibi Mama Cloths.

If you would just like to try them out, we just came out with a Travel/ Trial pack.  In that pack, we have included 2 Regular and 2 Maxi and it comes with a cute carrying case as well.  Check them out at:

NEW!!!! Maxi Night Mama Cloths!

Calling all mama cloth lovers.  We just added the Maxi/ Night pads to our mama cloth line.  You must be wondering, what is the difference between the normal mama cloth that we have? 

We read our reviews regarding our regular pads and we have decided to keep our shape and size the same.  Therefore, the maxi will look like the regular except that it is thicker and has better absorbent.  

It also comes in more vibrant colors, currently, it comes in Brown, Orange, Light Yellow, Dark Pink and Blue.  Try them out at:

NEW!!!! We have several new products coming up this year! Stay tune.

I have not post in a very long time.  Honestly, it is difficult having to take care of 3 boys and one of the 3 is a special need.  I know that there were some customers who tried to contact me through Facebook but didn't quite get a respond.  I have to apologize, I am not sure if anyone of you have lost a child before.  I lost Bruno, my English bulldog which I always refer to as my first son when I was pregnant with my second son.  Till today, I find it difficult to look at people walking their dogs.  It just tears my heart.  When Laynson was born, I lost a child. People may say that it's not right, he's still here, you didn't lose your child?  The truth is, I lost a healthy child. I hang out with a group of special need mom, every month, I see at least 1-2 kids pass on and it really affects me.  I've been to their funerals.... the scariest day of my life was going to a little boy's funeral that has what Laynson has and 3 hours later, Laynson quit breathing and no heartbeat for 10-12 mins.  We were able to revive him but things like that just hit me really hard.  It's just affects me and I try not to go to Facebook.

Though, having Laynson has made me a better person and a different person.  I learn to be more patient, take things easy, besides that, I learn so much.  I learn to be a nurse, a scheduler... I can tell what medication to use and I can tell all the different antibiotics.  I realize that God gave me Laynson for a reason and I cannot Thank him enough for giving this special little guy to me.  I wouldn't trade anything for Laynson.  I think I have been gone for a while and this year, I have decided to come back to focus more on BubuBibi. I have hired a lady who is EXTREMELY good at what she does to help me.  I am truly blessed to have her help me.

Anyway, stay tune for more new products and designs coming along our way!  Happy 2015!
