JJ2011, the pump I bought is auto. Save alot of time n energy. Usually pump for 15 mins after my night feed. But the amt is very miserable. Need to store some excess when I go back work to serve my notice.
Hmmm, you able to cook n do other house chores? Like laundry, vaccum etc? Cos now my baby so clinging n cranky I can hardly even go toilet. He just wants to b carried n cannot go into deep sleep.

That's all I remember which I bought during my baby is 3-4 months.. Any other things to add?? I went to every baby fair and collect things slowly....
I heard there's a big OG baby fair now till 14th April. MeowMummy, you can check that out. Your baby is 3 months old? Or you're 3 months pregnant? Sorry, i'm blur here. Hee.
Mine also auto. But, my friend said manual is better..And me too..I dont have many milk~last time I feel depressed too (due to hormone,I think)
sry, i m 3mths pregnant, haha.
Hi girls.. I have a 19 mths old girl..
Meowmummy - I have a list of things to get. If you want, I can email to you.
Hey MeowMummy, good luck on your pregnancy!
Maybe you can do some research online on the essential baby stuff and start buying them when there's a good sale (like GSS should be coming soon!) and when you're in your 2nd trimester.
One advice is to get only the essential stuff first. Things like stroller, car seat (if you own a car), baby cot, sterilizer, basic newborn onesies (dont't get too many, they outgrow them fast), diapers (again, not too many), mittens, booties, nursing bras and breast pump (if you want).
You dont't need to get a lot of the non-essentials till later when your baby is born, because some babies hate being swaddled, refuse to suck pacifiers and can be quite picky with their milk bottle teats. Different babies different preferences.
Meowmummy, you can also go for prenatal classes! I found them very useful!
I'm 34 this year and just got to know I'm pregnant. EDD Dec13. Joining this forum to learn from all experience mommies!
I recommend HypnoBirthing. You will learn what birth really means, understand what your baby wants and husband is more involved. Empower yourself to own your birth.

wobblejelly, when are you due? Which hospital?
Hi JJ2011. I am also thinking about staying at home to look after all my three children. It's more to monitor their work, bond with them and at least one of us (my hubby and myself) will be at home with the kids. I understand what you mean when you say you are bored at times.
I m a 34 yrs old mummy of 3-15,11,3... trying to concieve another one.. Hopefully .. *pray*
40 with 2 boys 3 and 7. Stay home most of the times. Anyone keen to meet up? mummies with young babies. Anyone interested to learn baby bonding through massage? there is an introductory session coming up next Saturday at Parkway. Older kids can play at a newly open indoor playground.
