Yup! many recommend the wrap. There`s many types of wraps.. but Sleepy wrap is the best i guess.. you can go to Baby Slings & Carriers-Ring Slings,Backpack Carriers,Mei Tai,Baby Wrap,Pouch Sling i bought both peanut shell and sleepy wrap from them. they owner personally deliver them to my place when i ordered online. hehe very good service
hello mummies! waa i see that most of you have done some shopping already! i have not't buy any single thing yet! opps maybe time to get started keke. dont know what to start though..too many things already!!
anyway share with you ladies (though you may already know hehe), there will be a baby fair at Expo hall 5B on 21st to 23rd Oct..11am - 9pm on friday and saturday, 11am - 8pm on sunday. i'm planning to buy my big items like the cot and pram there..and also walk around and see what else i can grab. hope to get some good discounts hehehe.
wow, thanks for the info pokkiedots, i've not started buying cot etc.
only bought a few pieces of baby clothes in australia... you know , the cute but kinda cheesy (though not cheap) Australia ones with cute koalas, kangaroos etc. need to start buying things for the hospital bag too...
cool, happy MTB! went to Paris during your 1st trimester.
my hubby & i love Paris and it was one of our honeymoon stops. but we wanted to wait a while before having our baby though I did suggest a "made in Paris" baby to him then! Ha... can imagine the relatives would be thinking - wow so fast, after wedding, immediately honeymoon baby, give ang pows until hands go soft! haha
i actually like raw fish... raw tuna belly, salmon belly... cutting down by a lot! yup, must go to reputable ones to eat.
in fact, better to tell them to slice fresh from the fridge & avoid those circulating around for 'dont know how long' on conveyor belts!
oh, a very funny old lady exclaimed loudly in the park this morning that nowadays govt gives a lot of $ for baby bonus, like $18k, to encourage people to give birth to baby. i was thinking - cant be so much... so went to google to find out - [you]Baby Bonus
she has exaggerated. $18k is for the 5th & subsequent baby, and it's on a dollar-by-dollar matching, which means the parents must deposit that amount to get the "subsidy" from govt.
anyway, having kids is very much a personal / family decision... though the govt has been more pro-natal recently, it is hard to reverse the trend! you can have pro-faily policies and incentives but we are the ones who need to nurture the children and provide for them till adulthood...
compromises must be made (e.g. career, travel, freedom, time), so it's not just about giving $. companies need to be pro-family too.
We went to Baby Hyperstore yesterday at Kaki Bukit Ave 1.
They are selling Maxi Cosi for $249 after discount (2010 colours) and $322 (2011 colours).
Is this a good deal? Anyone know anywhere cheaper than this?
Mel - Im will be shopping for yao lan and playpen soon
Booboomum - I was at Hypermart yday but I didnt view the Maxi Cosi, only concentrating at Perego. I think 2011 models having 10% discount on some models. Actuallu I dont find them cheap, not sure if you can get better price at the upcoming Oct expo sale. Im still procastinating btw Perego and Combi.

hey..havent been here for quite a while.. been busy at work.. =S
Baby been very active..did the unthinkable just now.. he did a 180 turn which cause me to shout out..coz i was stunned by his sudden movement..after i shout..baby stop moving ..haa i think i freak him out.. oppss..
hope everyone is enjoying baby's movement ...
ENVY!!! I only feel soft push as at 23 weeks.. seems liKe my baby not the active kind. Been praying for one hard kick! heheee..
Mel, I heard that the brand Graco for playpen is good.
morning mummies! whao 180 degrees turn! your baby did a helicopter in your womb lol! cute!
last evening i ouch out loud in the train..cos baby suddenly kicked directly at my belly button super hard lol! i was shocked and honestly the feeling is not that good when aimed at the belly button cos it's so sensitive now..abit "high" hahaha.
my baby is active only at certain periods of time..on some periods he kicks nonstop..on some he just goes totally quiet. so long as he kicks on and off throughout the day should be fine right?
hi mummies.. i have at least 3 persons commented that my legs looks swollen and i realised it is really swollen. Do you think it culd be due to too much water in take? Think i have to lift up my leg high tonight.
it is okie if your baby doesnt kick throughout the day... baby also need to rest =p
