littlehelper's a babysitter...
hehehe yeah but sorry cannot babysit for chelle cos i guess she i looking for full-time babysitter.I do ad-hoc/emergency babysitting
Hhaha ok thats good that she stopped vomitting.Oh still not used to formula milk?
Is she on complete formula now or like alternate one time BF one time Formula?
Be patient she will get used to it i guess..
We have been trying to let her have at least 1 feed of formula per day but it seems like she doesnt even wanna drink. normally her 1 feed about 130ml for breast milk but for formular, the most she drink per feed is about 50-60ml.. hmmm... dont know what to do also.. she also seems to dislike drinking from bottles. I have tried using pigeon, avent, dr brown, tommee.
How old is your daughter? Mayb she wanna drink from cup?(if she is 1+ ) or mayb you can pretend to drink together with her.
Hi all.Anyone else living around/in these areas?

Hello all! Both bishan/tp threads seem dead.Is it possible to combine so that it may be abit more lively?
*Asking permission from thread started here*.

Thank you! Hopefully we can keep this thread alive then have more mummies from different years joining in to give advice to one another /meet up
Such a small world mayb they know each other from primary school or smth but dont know that the other party is the friend.
Or mayb one mummy will be finding a job and another looking for people to take the job.Yeah.
Hi everyone. I'm a Toa Payoh mom. Working full-time but currently on confriment. Have 2 children. 1 boy-2yrs old. 2nd girl-14 days. Surfing net while pumping milk. Have prob with my girl latching on. Trying to keep on breastfeeding. Hopefully can breastfeed exclusively and cut back on formula. Anyone know of a good childcare or playgroup in toa payoh to recommend? Becoz my mom cant handle my son anymore and i think it is good to give him more interaction with other children. Hope to get to know more mummies out there!
Hello and welcome.Maybe we all might have crossed oneanother on the streets but did not know :S.
Oh nice .1 boy 1 girl.
I helped out at My first skool (previously knows as NTUC).Good impression of the infant care and the teachers.Toddlers and pre-schoolers class not too bad...
However the environment is really nice and big.
There is also kinderland at SAFRA.

Hi I'm new here....
I am Bishan Mummy.........
I am Bishan mummy....haha
Hi I'm new here too, staying at Bishan
Hi, mee too! i am staying in bishan and have placed my child in Agape Little Uni @ central at sin ming lane, midview city.
my son has been there for close to a year and a half and i have noticed a tremendous improvement in him. He has become very vocal and his language and maths are so good that i think he will have no problems going to primary one.
highly recommend this school though its new.
they have limited vacancies right now.
Happy New Year to all!
I saw this new preschool called Giving Tre3 when I went to Thomson Plaza last week. I think their webpage is www.givingtre3.com. It was next to Thomson Plaza along the main road. Its a new preschool cum enrichment centre opening in Jan 2013. I decided to go drop by unannounced cos just nice my boy turning 3 next year and I want to put him in Nursery. The lady was very nice and friendly and showed me around the place.
I must say, I loved that place alot!! It was not very big with only 3 classrooms, 1 class being dedicated as a computer lab for their reading enrichment programme and 2 other classrooms. But it was very cosy! Like a home feeling. Their boss is also very sweet and she shared that she's been in the early childhood industry for more than 12 years. I dont't really like those big organisations cos most of them just care about the business and making money but I could feel her passion for children even through talking to her.
They also have an outdoor area, although not very big with water and sand play. It was really nicely done up!
They also had reading enrichment and Pri Sch Preparatory programmes. Their reading enrichment programme is from Australia and its partially an online lesson. I think the name is Reading Eggs. Seems very interesting cos I went to the reading eggs website just now and the lessons were very fun. My girl quite likes to play on the computer and I think this will attract her. Besides having the online lessons, the teachers will also conduct activities in the classroom. I think will be a good balance.
They also have this Pri Sch preparatory programme that teaches grammar, maths, comprehension and creative writing to prep kids for P1. Sounds quite good too cos besides English and Maths, they also have this social and emotional learning lessons, something like learning how to listen, problem solving skills, focusing and paying attention etc. Which I feel my girl will need help in....she's quite hyper and can't really focus on a task for long.
They having opening promo now. Got waiver off registration fees and discounts too. I've decided to sign my kids up cos they have sibling discounts too.
