This is a discussion on EDD Sep 2010 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by LittleLady wow how come you have so many flight of stairs? talking about it, make me want ...
is those shop house unit, wonder how i manage to climb the stairs in my last trimester pregnancy. And on the day i deliver when contraction goes off, quickly walk down the stairs. hahaha
when you going there, can drop by to this shop called sunflower, the clothing, bag, shoes and accessories are nice, missed shopping there.
Enjoy your shopping over there.
as for advise given by relatives and friends, just listen with an open mind and decide for ourselves. i know what you mean. sometimes i feel that they make us more confuse and less confident as a parent. sigh...
[quote=lekdao;454319]$450 for 3 jabs?
1 day before bring baby for jab, feed them with bao shen and it helps.[/quo
so is mine consider expensive? hmmm...yah heard of the bao shen but that time we did not feed my son that. after the jab we just gave him more water.
for a period of time, my baby spits-up after every single feed till the point i got so fed-up i shouted at her. then my baby stared back at me with her eyes wide and i felt so guilty after that. =( then i realise it's cos she's overfed. when i see her dozing off at 3 oz, i kept waking her up to finish the 4th oz. she finishes them but spits-up after that. when i stopped at the point she fell aslp, maybe 3 to 3.5 oz, she seems full enough and doesnt spit-up. another thing is not to change her nappies or let her lie flat right after her feeding.
i wasnt able to burp her too until i tried another method which is like in the attachment. she usually burps with this method. be careful to hold the chin and not throat.
when my baby hiccups, i give her some warm water, maybe about 0.5 to 1 oz. the hiccups will stop after that.
Thanks for the info - yeah I will probably bring her to the ped next week for a review and then will ask about the jab also. Just concerned about bringing baby out to public places before she gets her immunisation and risk her catching some virus. But so excited about wanting to bring her out! hehe~
I think it's normal for men to feel quite helpless,my hubby also said he feels that way - even we mummies do sometimes, especially when my girl cries for no apparent reason, really dont't know how to pacify her - important thing is not to discourage him, let him try and both learn the ropes and work together as a team. See the humorous side of things - so what if she poops on your pants because the diaper was not worn properly? Just have a good laugh and learn how to do things differently the next time. Have fun experimenting!
So! Now all the September mummies have been mummies for a while~ let me ask you all this: what is the most useful thing you have purchased for your baby?
For me, the most useful item is the cheapo $29 netted bouncer - my baby's favourite place for naps! And it is so practical in this hot weather and easy to wash, compared to all the other expensive rockers and bouncers that we have tried - I have Baby Bjorn, Chicco and McClaren hand-me-down ones but all cannot compare to this cheap bouncer! I find this so amusing!
I think my most frequently used item have got to be the olden days cloth diapers... So useful... Use it as blanket, swaddler, bath towel, .... No time to bath? Put it over your shoulder before carrying my baby... I line it on the stroller too before laying her down... It is also easy to wash n quick to dry too...
Haha hey I bought a yaolan 3 days ago too! Seems to work quite well but am trying not to depend too much on it so we still let baby sleep on the bed or cot in the day. Doesn't seem to make a big difference to length of nap - just that it is cooler to sleep in the yaolan.
Your girl sleeps when you carry her.. You mean she wld wake when you put her down?
sometimes put her down 5-10 mins later... she will realise and she will wake up...........
especially one the cot...
if yaolan... sometimes she will sometimes wont.... still monitoring...
if carrying her... go out... sit car... what ever movements... she still sleep very soundly... today put her in stroller walk around compass point... not too long after... about 15-20mins later, she wake up again...

you stay around sengkang too? me too!!
i am not sure if it works for you, but my girl sleeps better when she is placed face down.
same here, i think the cloth nappy is cool...can be use for anything..like what you mentioned...over the shoulder, as a cool blanket...
come to think of it...i think the most useful item will be OUR BREAST PUMPs...we use it every 3-4 hours interval each day. haha.
hmm... agree with the nappy cloth... use them for loads of things... even use it for daily change of crib overlay. I think the sterilizer is the pure winner for me! and of cos my carrier is my life saver when my boss refuse to sleep... i will just slip her in and zzz-land for her and free hands for me!

How are your babies' sleeping patterns at night now? Sometimes my girl is able to take her last feed at 1am and wake for the next feed at 6am for 2 nights - then sometimes she wakes every 2 hours to feed, fuss, or change diaper. @.@ Any tips or tricks to make her sleep longer throughout the night?
