This is a discussion on EDD Aug 2011 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by szecare same here, milk supply low, my girl can suck my breast (bothside for 45mins) after that ...
just to know,how much are your babies drinking now? ( 1 month to 2 months old)
What's the best formula milk you all have been feeding your babies? Right now, my baby can finish one can of friso in 3 wks at 100-120ml (night feed only)
For Full month if without mother in law interference.. I would have given cakes or vouchers :P but for now we had to do both. Buffet and give cakes -_- didnt wanna held at my house. We booked a chalet and end up got to cancel mother in law dont let us bring baby out, say too young . Anyway... I think buffet at hm veri fan... baby cant sleep cant rest.. as you kno ppl come to see baby. You think baby can rest well? Sleep with so much noise? So i think give cakes and voucher is the best. For me I dont wanna stress my baby.
We also give cakes but only to relatives and close married friends only.
But holding at home cleaning up was crazy at night...need to sweep and mop. My baby sleeps well at night after the baby shower. Too many people carry him and play with him in the day haa...
Yeah man.. I dont like it at home too! Too many ppl is chalet.. you mess up the place at most go hm sleep . Haha leave the place for cleaning. Now that is at home, mine 3 rm flat 80Sqm... 40 pax! How to come in.. and hope my baby can catch some sleep if not he will be cranky! -_- pray hard.. And most not my relatives.. hahah so pray they faster makan finish and go home! :P
hello mummies! i've been pretty much MIA hope all of you are doing well and little ones are growing happily
i'm back at work already despite having give birth on 7 Aug. miss my little one but i called home pretty often to see if shes ok and all. cant wait to get off work today!
Jess; maid issue settled before you head back to work? I'll b stuck at home for 2 more mths taking care of the 2 monster cause quite a handful for my parents alone... Hahah. Doing work through emails here and there and wondering how when i go back work full time in dec.... Errrrr
Shiny; actually I didn't miss my #1 that much when I went back to work ... Took it as an escape from her crying.... Ok, I know it's mean, but it kept me sane for me to love her more...
hehe i kept calling my mum to check up on her and if she's eating well and if my pumps at work can keep up with her eating or not lol, kept looking at her pics too :P cant wait to knock off and see her.
engel.. haha we still kept her despite her being like this! lol i think we're too good and forgiving.. we just tell ourselves as long as someone can clean the house do baby's laundry and iron the mountain of clothes we're thankful.. if she goes who iron all the clothes?! LOL but i think she's getting better or just that i cant see.. to focused on little one!
Hope all is well. I am so busy lately preparing for baby shower and checking out my new house and ID etc...
The best is I have yet to check out and purchase any furniture or home appliances, wonder how am I able to do it after confinement when my nanny leaves. No one will help to take care of my baby and I have to bring her along everywhere I go. It's not that difficult but I am just worried baby still so small, keep bringing her out will up her chances of catching flu virus etc.
Am so excited at e same time, finally got my new home. Can't wait to faster do up the Reno and shift in.
You giving cakes to those relatives n friends whom you invite to your place for buffet?
I actually want to order cakes to give away but my mother in law say as long as they come to eat no need to give. Cos we prepared our own red egg, glutinous rice n ang ku kuet. My #1 we also never give out cakes. But This time round i will buy cake voucher for those friends who give me gifts but cannot make it to the baby shower.
By the way, which caterer do you gers use for your baby shower?
I used to cater from Neo garden, but thought of trying out other caterer, am considering Select catering.
You gers have any recommendation?
Good morning mummies,
Need some advice from exp mummies. Is it necessary to get a reversible handle stroller? There are some brands which dont't have reversible handle so I am wondering if it is necessary or what advantages does it have?
Also, I chanced upon this brand called Aprica (stroller). Seems to fit into my category cos it's Jap brand and LIGHT WEIGHT - 4.2kg. Has anyone heard of this brand, and any feedback.
Purpeace: I used Mannapot, serving is quite big. The dishes should be nice cos most of my guests took a few servings. We have their signature Mee Siam Goreng, Curry Chix, Honey Glazed CHix, Yang Zhou Chao Fan, Fried Dumpling. You can liaise with Keng Tee.
pipi~ aprica is good and expensive. i got combi stroller with reversible handle but end up we didnt use it because it's very difficult to maneuver, unless you get the 4 wheel drive - i only got the front wheel drive :P
also need to consider the ease to fold up the stroller if you are out alone with baby and things like that. currently we love the combi but hate the fact that the basket below is too small to squeeze the diaper bag in.
ive seen alot of people using capella, but i dont like the pattern :P like free advert like that.. or fake graffiti LV :P
My Buffet is Chilli Padi, I try before so quite like the nonya food
Szecare, I also changing.. now using S-26 becos mother in law likes it. But I changing to Nan Pro 1 after this can also. As for Enfa grow.. hmmm... issit ok for such young baby?
