This is a discussion on EDD: August 2012 within the Year 2012 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Can I ask which diapers is better, Goon, pampers or Huggies ?...
Can I ask which diapers is better, Goon, pampers or Huggies ?
I realised that too!! Since my 2nd trimester actually! Now I still wear sleeveless thou (cos of the weather).. but dont dare to raise my arms up! haha!! And MommyDioR.. I certainly have heavier discharge too! Very messy! I wonder what should we do if our waterbag broke! It's going to be worse than the discharge! Imagine we are walking or in crowded areas.. dont know where to hide then!! haha! I think too much!
Is the Goon diapers new in the market? Pardon my ignorance... Cos I've not heard of it until I saw you girls discussing about it. Good reviews about Goon?
Pampers the cheapest at this fair 72pcs $10, Huggies 72pcs $15, Drypers 24pcs $6.90
Anyway I bought the most ex haha Goon 58pcs $15
Ive not heard of Goon til this fair too but might as well give It a try since its ex n seems exclusively sold haha 2pkts still can afford to splurge
bengkung is a long cloth used by the malays as traditional Malay belly compression ...
it is good to use bengkung compared to corset but it is VERY tight... Tight until you cannot slough kind....

Went for my wk28 check up today..
My doc screamed when she saw my weight gain this month... 5kg!! (from wk24 to wk28)...
but i really got hungry easily this month compared to previous months....
She was like "you have gained 11kg now... I want you to gain only 12kg by full term.. so now you relly have to monitor your food intake"..
Sigh...so stressful ... haha...
My baby is 1.25kg now.. Gained only 300g compared to wk24... so alot of the wt go to me!!
She confirmed that the tightening I have been feeling is indeed Braxton Hicks... but nothing to worry as long as it is not painful...
I think another great buy is the Higgins baby wipes, but it's already sold out when I wanna buy them... If I'm not wrong, it's 30 wipes for $27+. They mentioned that stocks will be available tomorrow afternoon. I'll drop by again tomorrow... Hee!
Oh I bought the moo moo kow too! I love the cow patched designs. Haha! They're offering $130 for the starter kit; which includes 4 of the moo moo kow pants, 8 inserts, 1 hemp, 1 waterproof bag for soiled cloth diapers & 2 nipple pads. Kinda worthy, so I bought...
Today I spent 3hrs at the Motherhood fair!!
Would say it is worth going down if you know what you are going to get...
I feel it is better than the last baby fair at expo or taka....
Do take note that there are not alot of strollers...

can someone share with me the hospital bag list you got from your hospital?
The one I got from NUH like not extensive..
zaclin29, what's a hospital bed list? have not't gotten anything from Mt Alvernia yet.
mamamarie, I found the hardest thing to do was to avoid all the insurance agents from AIA, Prudential and AXA!! Tried the smile-but-say-not-interested and the show-black-face look but both not successful. I ended up dodging all their booths by taking a more circuitous route zzz. That was when I most missed having someone else with me. Oh, and the carrying of stuff...had to carry the diapers to the car first before coming back to continue my shopping. Thank goodness the playmats that I bought will be delivered to my place next week; think I cannot cope if I had to lug those back as well!
