glass bottles yah im sure they break but can get the ones with protective silicon. when the kids start to hold their own bottle and walk around, then it's better to give them plastic.
There's gonna be a baby expo fair this coming 22 - 24 oct, think can go see see look look and perhaps there's something for everybody to buy
So far I've got only:
- Rubber changing mat
- 2 small bottles
- 1 little pillow
- 3 sets of newborn clothings and mittens
I'm newly registered here. My edd is on 12 march,first time mummy too! Ya I'm going for the babyfair next 2 weeks,but have not list down what to buy yet, might get some baby stuff as gifts, any advice?
Just to share, coincidently my EDD is also 12 March'11! And I'm also a Taurus MTB
For me, I think its time to get these from the babyfair if they have:
- Breast pumps
- Electrical Sterilizer
- Electrical Bottle warmer
- Baby cot/ playpen
and some other smaller items, if got promotion then buy:
- BPA free infant bottles
- Bathing tub
- Receiving blankets
- Newborn clothes and mittens
- Towels/ hankies for newborn
As these are just some essentials for the 1st month newborn at least.
For more detail list, this webbie has every item you need to know:
Practical shopping list for mother and baby
Thanks for sharing and nice to meet you. Will start listing down the items I should get before I go for the fair. I'll be delivering at Glenneagles,do we have happen to be at the same place again?
me not yet bought anything yet..lol..
OooOo... I also have not't buy anything at all yet, hubby keep saying still early to buy stuffs, but my hands so itchy!!
Anyway, will be dragging hubby to the Oct Expo Fair, hopefully with the "atmosphere" there, he will let me buy something! Hehe...
Any mummies will be delivering at Raffles Hospital?
Haha.. raffles hospital is just opposite my working place.. but i did not choose there.. my gynea is Mt E one.. but i dont know if she can go Mt A or not...
btw... need to wear any special bra during pregnancy?
Also I will check something... yest something happen I got over excited.. my heart pump vv fast.. will it affect the baby or not huh?
same...my hubby also say to early to buy..he say wait till dec then start to shop..
but told him by then i'm too tired to move around much coz tummy get bigger..
simiko>> oOOo.. my previous gynae also at Mount E , but his clinic quite small, always bursting at the seams with patients. Everytime I go there, average waiting time around at least 1/2 an hr or 1 hr++, till I got claustrophobia,even though I got make advance appt! Wait til by the time I go in to see him, I feel quite ill..
I did not wear any special bras, but I read that its advised not to wear under-wired bras during preggy and during breastfeeding, as it may affect the development of milk glands resulting in clogged ducts during breastfeeding.
I also experienced rapid heartbeats sometimes when I got angry, or got startled suddenly, and become breathless. But when I go for my usual gynae visit, everythings ok. My hubby will scold me when that happens, say no matter what, must try to relax and clam down. Hee hee...
Anyway, no matter what doubts/qns you have , ask your gynae, no matter how trivial it may seem, they are the best ppl to advise us. During my 1st tri, I even ask my gynae whether it was safe to have sex with my hubby. Hahahaha....
yeah loh, dec tummy big big , tire easily to shop around much. start buying little bit by little bit loh..
Ya by then tummy will be too big,I think it's fine to buy bit by bit,less stress towards the end. Ya I asked everything and anything to my gynae,including the 'having sex' part too.
Btw,my weight has been increasing about 1 kg per month,is that normal?I'm so troubled by it.My gynae said it's a misconception to eat double portion when you are pregnant,so eat normally shouldn't increase so much.Sigh..
I do try one maternity bra,I feel quite comfortable as my breasts do increase by one cup. But the shape doesn't look nice without the wire,hee..
Hi Mummies to be,
So far I have been buying smaller items... like some baby's clothes, sophie the giraffe, cute booties, decal for nursery, nappy rash cream etc.
My hubby bought the pigeon breast pump for me recently... said I so gan chiong...
No choice my eyes keep lookingt around and hands itching to shop...
Ya I reckon my tummy will also be too big to shop around by the end of this year, so I had better get some of the baby stuffs 1st..
Though I've not know my baby gender yet, I just buy those items no need see gender and get neutral organic clothings both boy and girl can wear.
Now at 18wks my legs are already feeling so weak and easily tired....
Btw ladies, Is it really must wear non-wired bras? cos Im still in my wired bras... scare breasts will sag in non-wired bras, any good recommended brand to buy from?
Can give me some tips to slim down too? I feel like I am ballooning. After my morning sickness left, I have been putting on wt...
I know what you mean by weak legs... some how I feel my legs are different from before, but due to the nature of my job, I tend to walk and stand quite a fair bit. In fact, I am continuing to walk my dogs like I used to ( but now cut down to 20 mins max) I used to be able to jog with them for at least an hr ... but now I feel too tired n clumsy to do that.
Do try to take short walks. My friends told me it helps quite a great deal with delivery...
By the way I am still wearing my underwired bras... you mean must change now? I thot after delivery then change to non-wired bras?
So far I've got one maternity bra from mothervogue,tried for fun actually,but it really doesn't give nice shape.End up I bought normal triumph bra with one size bigger,it should be fine and we should still look pretty as a pregnant lady.
Why you wanna slim down already? you should slim down after give birth, cos now is watever you eat goes to the baby.. so very important to eat more! dont worry about your physic, most of the weight also goes to enlarged breasts, placenta, bigger uterus and the baby's weight. As long as you maintain a 10 - 15kg gain throughout the pregnancy, its still very healthy and easy to gain back your pre preg state .
Mommy simiko, you are so lucky can still lose some weight despite being pregnant I think is normal cos I do have friends who lose weight during their 1st trimester and still eating well, and they all had Boys!
and mommy Alice,
As for the maternal bra, I read on top somewhere that wired bras will block milk ducts? so maybe change to non wired bras .. I also think no need to wear maternal bra yet, I also changed to bigger wired bras from wacoal, got good coverage and support.
I heard fr my sis in law.. she say 1st tri dont walk too much coz you dont have much energy.. best is during the last few week before due walk A LOT.. haha.. ya... stomach so big vv dif to walk.. but have to.. for her 3rd son.. her baby in the stomach actually press onto one of her nerve.. then her leg vvvvv pain.. she still force herself to walk.. helps a lot when giving birth... and i dont know how true this is.. usually ppl say cannot eat banana.. but she say she eat a lot of those short bananas.. long ones cannot eat.. she say eat all 3 sons got vv smooth n fair skin .. n yes.. all her sons got smooth n rather fair skin... n prevent constipation also.. but i cannot eat a lot .. get sick of it after a few... i always forget buy / cannot find... today after work must go buy...
n she also say before birth 1-2 weeks eat coconut.. but i dont know which type... baby won't be yellow when come out.. i think i will try also..
The bra costs about $35 to $45 if I'm not wrong,it's a bra meant for breast feeding which has a button in front.I find it quite useful.
Have you all read the newspaper article today saying that pregnant lady with BMI 19 to 23 should gain 15kg during pregnancy,too much or too little is no good. The average weight increase has gone up from the normal 12kg. I felt quite comforting after reading that article haha.Anyway as long as the baby is healthy,I dont't mind anything.
Yup, read about it too... Soon will you be doing your detail scan? I'll be doing mine on the 30th Oct. So Excited that I can see my baby in details
