Got something to share here! Not too sure if you already got to know about this. Hehe...
Went to OG departmental store today and went to the kids' department, happened to realized that that and Avent btls are on promotion, they even have those that comes in package together with btl wammer and sterillizer. Also, prams are having discounts, brands like Combi, Capella and few others, maybe you might get something thr! :B
You meant for Avent? I actually looked through and the bottles are of the same quality. :O
Actually, yes I think pram is a little early as it would take up quite a lot of space, but what my mom think is that since we already got the baby cot why not also get the pram because also not difficult to maintain. Will consider to get the bottles but will check it first! Especially after hearing this from you, haha. Luckily now they've special bottle warmers for Avent bottles, otherwise so troublesome!
i rather you get the more expensive better quality ones that you can steam at home using the stove (dont need to buy warmer).
The stove that my home is using are not those lighted ones, mine are electronic and steaming them under it the plastic would melt, if boiled with stove better to get glass bottles isn't it? Even though it's hard plastic it's still plastic. :O It's my mom's idea to get the sterilizer safer that way also at least it's made to use, fine with me... :/
Since she's paying them! Haha.
Will check it thoroughly before I purchase anyway if I didn't remember wrongly you bought bottles to baby Makayla already right? Which brand? I'm considering Pigeon, that or Avent, prefer wide bottles, previously when mom had me she say wide bottles can't be used outdoor because they do not have wamers for them and they dont't fit those bought outside, but I saw today that Avent specially had wamers for their bottles only so it's better now and I also saw a few webs selling them so, should be fine, which do you recommend?
Avent is still the best from what I heard from other mummies. The baby wun 'eat air' and keep vomitting...they got diff sizes...i got 4 botles for her already....1 for plain water, 1 for milk, 1 for juice and 1 more larger bottle for milk. they grow up very fast. So if you buy the bigger one you dont have to buy one more or 2 more when baby grows up to like 3 months or 4 months. the milk intake become damn high. Even the part where they suck milk from got different opening. got those cut in a cross sign one..and one more poke in holes..the liquid comes out differently also.
Yes, understand about the teat sizes part, saw another bottle brand MAM it's an imported brand wonder if it's good because we can simply buy new teat to change. Big bottles? You mean the 330ml ones? But I find that bottle too big although yeah what you say is true, they'll eventually need more milk intake, but if I were to buy bottle warmers for 260ml, it won't fit 330ml bottles, OMG! Guess shall stick to the 260ml bottles and see what I can do at later time. Because not sure after a few months will I still stick with Avent! Hehe. Bottles are pretty difficult to maintain especially if we often heat them, they turn yellowish?
Anyway, if you were to get so many bottles, why dont't get the newborn starter kit? Heard it's not bad. Although I have not't really seen the item just had glance at it this afternoon.
You bought all the bottles individually?
during the last baby fair i checked MAM....sorry to say,,LOUSY. lolz. bad quality. no use buying the new born starter kit...and yea i bot all individually. and gonna use the stove to steam. just boil some water, steam can already. the come in package one cannot steam. will 'melt'. that's why i got the better quality. If the bottle turn yellowish is becos never wash the milk off properly..same goes to the baby. must remember to let the baby drink water after drinking milk. *that is when baby start to teeth already *. The new born starter kit is more like gimmicks...dont get tricked.
OH gosh! I almost wanted to get MAM bottles because of the colors and the design looked cute! :/
Maybe I should quickly get my Kiddy Palace membership card done and get everything at one go, things there are pricey but seemed to be the nearest and most convenient "one-stop" baby departmental store around my area.... better not over buy also, because remember the baby shower!! Your friends and family will come down with lots of different baby "goodies" to surprise you with! This is what I heard from my friends that are also young mummies & my mom too. Was consistantly reminded not to overbuy all these items. Hehehe.
Sounds true, $50 for 4 bottles. Alright will check everything before purchasing. But that bottles are also quite popular now, but just that it's Malaysia brand. Mom is bringing me to some kids' departmental stall located in M'sia tomorrow, guess I'll get everything at a better price there... well, hopefully..
yea..baby shower mostly they will buy clothings...and skin care products and food. lol. oh remember to tell me which departmental stall you go to. I will go also. LOL. think will get the tub, bathing items and towels in bulk. cotton balls also.
Okay, I'll let you know, maybe I could check the prices there for you and let you know then you could easily compare the difference, because if you can get it at almost the same price at Sg, then there's no need to travel all the way just to get it. I am also going in to check prices and hopefully strike off some of my baby checklist because so far, I know KP membership is $10 for annual and if I didn't remember wrongly they give 10% off KP members so as we get the items it's almost like paying for it already, so yes, why waste petrol!! HAHAHA.
lol....petrol not i pay ...hahahaha.
that's why i going next time...during EXAM PERIOD. all the kiasu parents will stay home...hahaha..tomorrow should have jam...today holiday lei
Pretty disappointing today, not due to the jam but instead I went there late and mom is rushing back to go MBS. Therefore only went to Sentral, but things at 'Anak ku department store' is so expensive! With their prices, it's so much cheaper getting all the needs from Sg. But bought a few milk bottles that are at promotional price at 'World of cartoons'.
Why is it the honeymoon period of pregnancy? :O Never heard of it, but sound so cute! HAHA
you got join those pregnancy weekly websites? they email to you every week about you and your baby's progress...then i'm in week 26 now. so when i went to check most of the webby said now is when all pregnant women feel the most comfy as compared to the entire pregnancy..=.= that means...the worse s coming..slowly build up. from back ache..to when you sneeze you pee...to cannot sleep side or back or tummy cos the baby would be growing very fast suddenly..to labour and delivery. jialat.
and i was damn disappointed with today's baby fair at Expo.. Nothing at all one!! the baby clothes all not nice at all.. wasted my time so sad.. only bought the baby pillow support thing.. where there's two things at the side to stop baby from turning left or right one.. lol.. not sure what's the exact name also..
when you are getting bigger..the baby will feel cramped up inside your uterus. So, sometimes when you lay on your side, the baby will be in the way so you have no choice but to lie on your back. BUT, you will get serious back ache when you lay on your back. so that makes no side no back...very hard to sleep..that is when you will start losing sleep. very hard to get a decent night of rest...
You can try NEX at serangoon. cute baby clothes and nice ones...
