But how come no one think about hire the maid to take care the baby??
Me and my husband think to hire the maid, we hope can hire a good maid.
I agreed maid is considered an outsider, some more dont't know the maid is good or not.
But if both take care by nanny, will cost me SGD 1,200.. and me and hubby need to do the night shift... dont't know can we "tahan" the night shift. And sometime my hubby he need to OT till midnight, this mean I alone have to take care both kids after fetch from nanny house.
Headache about this also. Me and hubby have not get a solution for this.
Anyone have good suggestion.
Anyone start having contraction...
It come every few mins... pain till cannot take it ... gynae say it normal and it will get worst at the later stage.
You can do a search online Braxton Hicks contractions.
At least you know what is happening and see if your neighbours can help to look see look see a little when you are not around.
Or at least try to talk to your HR and let them know your situation, see if it is possible to arrange your work schedule in a way that you or your husband will be home to see the maid.
You can make use of the time while waiting for your delivery to coach maid and observe her.
What about your confinement? If you are hiring a confinement lady as well, you can also ask your CL to supervise her. Some times we might not be comfortable with the methods the maid uses
Else maybe the maid and CL can share another room, CL usually wont be fussy about this. What about the arrangement for your newborn?
Would you want your newborn to share a room with the CL and maid then after the CL left, a room with the maid?
Ya, after the confinement lady left, the newborn will stay with maid in same room. I think my elder one will stay with me and hubby.
But may hope during confinement, my maid can take care elder, then i can rest more. Do you think possible??
Any idea what much for install CCTV for 3 room flat??
