Can i tell you how grateful i am for baby carriers?

Baby Crustabakes seems to want to be carried all day. She wails whenever i put her down.

I have to “wear” Baby Crustabakes to get anything done.


Which includes cooking this okonomiyaki.

A savoury Japanese Pancake of seafood and cabbage.


I really dont mind carrying my baby all day. I kiss the top of her head a million times a day as she is snuggly strapped against my chest. It’s a wonderful, intoxicating feeling.

I just worry for her safety as i move around the kitchen to get breakfast served.

Is this a phase that babies go through?

Super mommies out there, can i get advice/solution or any form of insight on the situation?



Taken from zencancook

    • 1 cup flour
    • 2/3 cup dashi
    • 2 eggs
    • 4 cups chopped cabbage
    • 2 scallions chopped
    • 1/2 lb pork belly, sliced
    • 1 cup octopus tentacles, chopped
    • okonomi sauce
    • kewpie mayonnaise
    • bonito flakes
    • ao-nori or furikake
    • canola oil
    • For the okonomiyaki:
    • Mix the flour and dashi together. Add to the chopped cabbage and scallions and add the eggs. Mix well. Add the chopped octopus, if using.
    • Heat some oil on a griddle or a large pan. Make four mounts of the cabbage mixture (work in batches) and shape them like pancakes. Top with slices of pork belly.
    • Cook on medium heat until golden brown and flip over, about 7 or 8 minutes per side.
    • Top with okonomi sauce, kewpie mayonnaise, bonito flakes and ao-nori or furikake.
    • Serve hot


    I made my own Okonomi Sauce by heating the following ingredients:

    – 1 TBS ketchup

    – 1 TBS worchestershire sauce

    – 1/2 TBS soy sauce

    – 1//2 tsp sugar
