Hi mum n dad !Im a nanny staying in Pasir Ris,sms me for more info .97327396.
I got many years xp taking care of infant-school children.
I understand some gynaes promote natural diet though.
Actually I so tired of popping multivits, calcium pills daily. Multivit quite big in size.
Have you done shopping for baby yet? I am to start soon…hopefully i find more time!
My gynae said that if im taking the milk I shud b getting the normal 4 types of supplements I need for me n baby... dha, folic acid etc.... coz all in the milk oredi. So she is quite understanding she just told me milk is sufficient...
yes I intend to go for baby shopping this aug/sep... hehehe..
Congrats to all the mummies edd Nov. We are changing gynae. Anyone of you can recommend a good gynae, not from Kandang Kerbau Hospital, reasonable rate, does a good c-sect job. Possible hospital are Mt A, Thomson Medical Center, Novena.
Thanks in advance.

you changing gynae as you are not comfortable with the current one?
just to share that i dont't like my gynae at all too. however since i already paid for his package, i will continue with him.
my gynae is super sacratics, impatient and uses backdated machine that does not give clear scan and printout. i stick to him due to convenience only.
Hi everyone giving birth in thomson? Any idea which pediatrician to choose?
Hmmm... heard from my friends that the hospital will ask you which pediatrician your baby will go to.
Cos baby born 7 days need do checkup.
SBCCC @ tiong bahru (Jalan Membina) Dr Wong for me =)
hi all !! my EDD is dec 3...but im very sure its going to be earlier...so Nov..
im new here..i am seeing my gynae at Thomson Medical Center also. dont like the carpark system but no choice..dont want to change doc at this time.
Right now, i dont know what to get for baby's staff...so far just bought a cupboard from IKEA for baby..so lost, dont know what to buy...
i'm first time mom to be too so am quite lost like you too.
however you can check out those checklist (can be found online) for things to buy. mom's side should be things needed during confinement and like breastfeed pump (if necessary). baby's area include baby clothes, diapers/nappies, cot/pen, pram, bathing stuff...
there's certainty lots to be done before baby come along!
Hi pelicanfly, i agree with you on the poor parking system at thomson. Which gynae are you seeing?
there is a baby fair on 23 aug at suntec. you can do some shopping there.
hello mummies to be! sorry for the no updates as recently super busy, especially work!
taurusmom: i am giving birth at thomson, gynae under Thomson Medical Center direct, dr claudine tan. my friend just switch to thomson pediatrician Dr Eugene Tan, i think he last time from amk sbcc and now go over to Thomson Medical Center. do you need to select your pediatrician now? my gynae like so cool headed , didnt ask much stuffs
hellow pelicanfly! welcome you to join us
just to share what my friend told me, she say for preparations for newborn can get some items:
- swaddles, some newborn clothes (they outgrow pretty quick)
- cot/play pen, mattress, bumper set, bedsheets, pillow bloster, mat to prevent water leak into mattress
- rocker, beansprout husk pillow
- diaper change, cupboard, liquid powder
- 1 to 2 brands of newborn diapers (1 pack each, not enough then buy again later, and in case not fit also)
- sterilizer, washing liquid detergent, wash bottle brush
- few brands of newborn bottles (in case baby dont like), pacifier
- laundry detergent and softener, wet wipes (many many)
- 2nd hand milk pump (cos first hand too expensive and not sure if can successfully bf or not, intital months to try direct latch as much as possible, then use breast pump to build supply, means can buy breast pump later stage too)
- bath tub, bath towel, bath lotion
- rocker, high chair
what else to add on?
And i just cleared my spare room to make for baby room. maybe end of this month going ikea shopping for a comfy chair for breastfeeding and cupboard for baby clothes
and for diapers, my friend recommends merries and goon (korea) can buy online Qoo10. more asian fit. if baby more chubby type can use huggies. need to try around so now can start to get samples from these diapers suppliers
my bbt chart here: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3d1e5e
no need to select paediatrician now.
Was trying to research on pediatrician near my house cos heard that we can choose.
