Details, images, pricing and dimensions of the Play Yard can be found at the following link:
I'm still considering whether to get one - not sure if Christine will play inside for long. trying to check out that info ...
Christine has 2 cots & 1 playpen. When she's sleepy, she knocks her head against the cot (which is almost everyday). Haenim is as hard as cot...
if yes, I'll probably getting a 6 panel (w/o activity panel - cos it's cheaper) and the BIG BLOCKS
(itching to buy) let me go measure my floor area tmw.
I'll let you know soon, ok?
I forgot to call my friend to clarify if play yard is good when baby can walk cos Christine can almost walk. not sure if she'll stay in & she has many accidents when tired. thinking of getting OT equipment - very firm & heavy cushions. hahaha...
BTW someone is selling something similar ($50) on ebay. but only 4 panels - can't add panels. Item number:130362203171
Latest - someone's selling a Haenim play yard on ebay for $80. 6 panel!!
Any mummy interested in sharing shipping for this corset?

I'm trying to cut carbs at night now. but this 5 kg is really stubborn.
Christine is wasting milk again. think top2 teeth erupting soon. OMG so drama-mama over small lil things. Now she doesn't want pureed fruit. Teeth not even out yet but she wants to chew white rice & biscuits.

I got mine from Cheong Choon Store (tel: 65323855), just call and they'll deliver.
If you want 6 panels, they can even help to pair you up with another buyer so that both of you share 3 boxes (i.e., 6 panels per person).
Yup, my box says bieco..

yeah man...so fast!!!!
How much did you pay for Haenim (japan or normal)?
My big blocks are coming tmw morning
I'm thinking of bringing Christine to my friend's place to try out her 6-panel yard. I'm still eyeing the japan yard.
Recently, the lil girl has been very naughty. tearing tissue, spraying water fr her bottle, playing saliva & pulling our ears (when we carry her)! Yes, she's been throwing things too. Luckily, sometimes she picks them up herself.
Today, she refused to stay in her playpen. She wants to walk now...
i bought it @ $129 each set for the japan version =D
i bought 2 sets one at my mum place one at my place.
but to my surprise the 4panel one is very big i can even go in and feed her cereal while shes playing =D
hee hee she like the activity panel and she can walk round and round inside =D
happy that can train her to walk like that at least better than the walker!
overall like it alot and find it useful =D
my ger also always throw things and than giggles when she see us putting a fierce face omg!!!!
was really funny bt control cannot laugh cus otherwise she will think is funny and continue =)
hw much you bought the big blocks?
and hw does it look like?
she loves tissue too @_@
Pinkytham, r you looking for frilly dress like this?
My mum bought this at John Little (woodlands) during Christmas sales. only $18, I think. I think Kiddy palace & kiddie shops at IMM also carry such dresses. you better hurry cos they are usu avail more cheaply during Christmas or CNY.
We're not planning anything big cos she doesn't have any friends, apart fr her 2 cousins. hehe, celebrations are for us adults. I may ask some girlfriends over.
I'll prob go for a different look for her birthday. hopefully Zara, Gingersnaps or Gap have something preppy or frenchy. Pls, let there be a post-CNY soon!!
Any mummy interested in joint outing to Polliwogs? If we go in Apr, it'd be like mass birthday celebration. pandemonium, haha... I have not't been there. Looks fun. prefer to go on weekdays (Mon or Fri) to avoid crowds.
The Polliwogs - Our Play Pad

How are all of you? Busy preparing for baby's 1st birthday?
No big celebration for my girl though. Just a small party.
BTW, wanted to ask if any of your darlings are still NOT sleeping through the night? My girl has been waking up 2-4X (yes, you read it right) a night.
Not for milk though. BUT she wants me to pat her back to sleep! And this patting can go on as long as 2 hours!
Have tried everything except the cry-it-out method. Am rather reluctant to try it out...but I'm really sleep deprived.
Sigh. She is almost 1 and still not sleeping through....:/
Christine sleeps thro sometimes. But sometimes, she can wake up 1-4x per night, like last night 2x milk cum 1 diaper, 2 gas. When she has a lot of pee, she also wakes up. you can feel the warm pee in diaper. LOL I'm not sure if teething has affected her in that she doesn't get good sleep. She has 2-3 teeth popping...
She usu goes right back to sleep unless it's stomach discomfort. Have you tried giving gripe water? I'm considering giving her 5 ml before she sleeps cos there're some nights that r really tough. Some mummies advise rub oil nightly before baby sleeps.
Yawn... taking a nap in 5 min.
I'm not counting on having any beauty sleep anytime soon. Usu there's 1 milk feed btw 4-6am as she's a grazer during day & not drinking enough for her activity level. She can walk w/o support now.
Oh! Christine & Grandpa have the same birthday! That's so nice!
I know this sounds rather awful on my part but I'm sort of glad that there are other Mummies out there whose babies wake up as often as mine (sorry ping26... :~). Makes me feel less alone.
My girl doesn't go back to sleep immediately. I have to pat and pat and pat and pat. And if I ignore her, she will throw a terrible tantrum. Not only will she scream her head off, she will keep banging her head against the cot...!
My girl is walking w/o support now too. But she can't say any words yet! She babbles (mama, dada, nehneh, nahnah etc). But that's it. Nothing specific. Rather worried about this aspect
I think we'll prob still have a private one for her otherwise, she may never get to celebrate her birthday on actual day.
dont't worry , the night wakies will pass one day. Hopefully it'll be sooner than later. hahaha... Her night wakies are irregular. Last 2 weeks was bad. Her burps can come hours after feed sometimes. It's very painful for her cos tummy is quite hard.
One of my friends bought a yaolan out of desperation. they threw every baby book out of window cos they couldn't get any sleep at all. but I think yr baby is too old to switch.
I wish Christine'll drink more during day. These days, she hardly finishes her milk or food immediately. She'll eat/drink half, then she'll take a long break (play or walk) before finishing food. We usu 'lock' her in high chair or exersaucer for meals.
But I'm happy that she's putting on weight & height (cos she's drinking thro night duh); she used to be bottom 20%, now bottom 25%.
I think as long as baby understands some words, she should be fine for 12 month. Some babies will talk btw 18-24 month. My niece talked at almost 2 yr old. She's also high needs. While she can point things out, she always needed longer to process when addressed. Sometimes, she just can't understand e.g I have to show shoes & gesture a lot cos we're going out, in order to get her to change diapers.
While Christine is fast, I think the terrible twos will come earlier. Recently she'll try to stick her chubby thigh thro cot rails & cry cos she doesn't want to stay in cot, then we'll have to free & carry her. I try to explain that I have to pee, change or etc, sometimes she accepts it & waits. sometimes I have to distract her w a book. trying to break habit calmly before it gets worse.
Yeah, I think at 11mths+, it will be tough to switch to a yaolan. Now I'm just alternating between cot and bed.
My girl can't finish her food too. And she hates meat. Whenever there is meat in her porridge, she would spit everything out. Guess meat requires chewing and she is lazy to chew.
Glad that Christine has been putting on weight What's her weight now? My baby is about 9.5kg. Can you imagine I have to carry and rock her for 1-2hrs before she sleeps??? My back and arms are breaking. Sometimes (increasingly) when we are out, she would struggle when placed in the pram and I have to carry her...
My girl can understand (I think) "no", "kiss", "bye bye", "clap hands", "twinkle stars", but that seems to be it.
I'm trying to encourage her to talk by pointing out objects etc to her. Let's hope her first word appears soon.
You sound like a really patient Mummy ping. Wish I could be like that. My girl has been testing my patience from Day 1. Sometimes, I get so frustrated I break down And whenever we are out, I can't help wondering why my girl isn't as guai as other babies...
Oh, and my girl is sick AGAIN! She has been having a fever every 2 weeks! Since she was 9mths!!!!!!!!! Every 2 weeks!!!!!!! SIGH.
Glad that this page is alive again... So nice to hear that your babies can walk without support. I wonder when can Kaydes do this. Now she still refuse to walk when we hold her. She'd rather crawl to get to where she wanna go.
We would be throwing her party on 11th April instead of the actual day. My invites list is endless cos of many close friends and relatives. I think it would be fun...
Developmental wise, I think Kaydes is doing quite well in terms of understanding us and identifying objects. When I tell her ballet dance, she will lift up one leg to the back while holding on to something. haha.. this is so funny. When we pretend to scold her naughty girl, she will pout and give you the scrunched up face. If we say NO NO... she will let out an angry scream if she really wants that particular thing that we dont't allow her to touch or hold.
Sigh... I just wish she would walk soon, if not I really worry.
Jia you, I think the interrupted sleep should soon pass, at most a few more month...gambate! But I think you should try a sling or something. My helper uses the sarong sling for milk feeds sometimes (the lil girl keeps jumping off lap) - her arm is usu wrapped around baby like normal carrying. It takes away some of the weight & acts as safety harness (cos I'm scared Christine will fall off if she struggles.) When baby is drowsy, you can relax your arm
I dont't know how to use sling well but my helper is very good with it.
I think I have to wake up at 1x per night for milk feed for quite some time cos Christine's a tiny grazer. She drinks about 700-1000ml per 24 hours but weighs only 8.5kg & measures about 70-72cm. She eats 3 meals but small portions. She loves rice & porridge & meat but hates mushy stuff (ie most fruit & cereal). pui pui pui She only eats pear & apple. I blend meat & carrots for porridge, everything else is cut in tiny chunks now.
How much does yr girl drink? Maybe you try putting a tiny bit of meat to flavour the porridge to get her used to taste.
Yes, every baby will have the stroller struggle, esp when she can walk. For now, Christine seems to struggle less. We use distraction - let her hold biscuit box, special sweet wrapper or sing to her. She just freezes at times. Or I flatten the stroller, so she can't arch her back. HAHAHa.
If you have a pair of extra hands, it makes a lot of difference.
I'm not patient towards adults, I'm only nice to kids cos they are so cute. It helps that I have a wicked sense of humour, so I actually enjoy SOME (not all) kids' pranks & silly tantrums.
I prayed very hard during preggie cos if my baby has special needs, I told God then I will have no time or energy for other kiddies. I feel very blessed. Even my hubby who's very scared of babies, enjoys Christine (but he's still very lazy).
Hope your baby gets well soon! Some mummies give baby vits. (appeton, I think) We still sterilise hands cos I bought too many bottles.
dont't worry, when she starts to talk, it should get more fun. You must think positive!

Christine still can wear some Mothercare stuff for 3-6mth. mostly clothes for 9mth.
Christine just called me mum or yesterday Before that, every human is -. As you can imagine, only - was beaming away like a lamp. She has more than 20 words & sounds now.
Most babies have 1st word like mama, car, ball, around 12-15 month. Give your baby some time.
My younger niece was also quite difficult until around 2 yr old. She screamed and floored whenever anything didn't go her way. Now, at 2.5 yo, she can speak a little but still strong-willed. My niece may have a language or learning difficulty in future. Sometimes, difficult kids without language can appear autistic.
It is worrying when the advice comes from yr sis & pediatrician. If you like more info, CHAT is an autism screening tool for 18 month babies. Help Autism Now Society CHAT Screening Tool
My advice is to just enjoy your baby as much as you can now cos she'll only be one once in lifetime.
you can do more pointing w your girl. If she's not into books, get a giant poster w tactile/touchy bits. (I like things that can't be thrown or messed up) Point to your girl & make her point back. It'll help with joint attention/reference, ie your girl will understand better what you r trying to communicate. The tactile bits encourage her to explore her pointing finger.
babies have slow processing speed & are forgetful. Christine still loses words. On some days, she can forget bao-bao & stuff. She also takes a longer time to say new words (retrieve auditory sound & talk/oral-motor). I tell my hubby to wait about 1-2 sec. My helper, mother in law and even colleague get too excited and bombard her w words sometimes, interrupting her thinking process, depriving her of a quiet moment. When a baby is concentrating, it's best to wait patiently before offering help.
dont't worry too much. Else, you may miss some wonderful moments now. Try to savour the fun moments cos that'll keep you going.
BTW do you want to join Christine for playgroup at my ctr? We're offering 1 free trial in April. It's on Wed 10-11.30am.
Pls PM me if you or anyone is interested.
Baby is ONE today! Yay!
Celebrated her birthday yesterday. Baby was ok but cried when she saw the flame on her birthday candle.
My girl is like your niece. She throws terrible tantrums which includes head banging. It's really stressful.
My sis keeps telling me it's too early to confirm autism at 12mths. Told me to really worry only if baby isn't saying any words at 15mths :/
Thanks for the CHAT link. Tried it and baby failed a few. But maybe she is still small so can't do stuff like pretend play yet.
She can't point with her index finger yet. When she sees something she likes, she will stretch out her hand and fingers. But no index finger pointing yet
Thanks for the tips! Will definitely try them out.
BTW, where is your centre and which date is the trial?
