This is a discussion on EDD Jan 2012 Mummies within the Year 2012 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Thanks HoFamily for clarifying this with the baby bonus! Really so unfair. CDC is so useful.. I heard that injections ...
Indeed, if I have not been a member of this forum, I would not have known either...
Anyway, I called the hotline to ask if the CDC is to be terminated this year.
The lady told me that it's dependent on the Budget - if there is a budget surplus and if the govt want to share the budget surplus. She said this would only be announced in Feb 2012.
Hi all mummies, we have got it all wrong..I have called and clarified..
CDC is NOT the 1-1 (6K)..CDC is a scheme depend on government budget in Feb. From range $300-$400. So those after December this year will not get this amount of $300-$400.
AND the 101 account that is up to 6K is called as CDA. This is still going on.
The 4K thing is baby bonus. So there are 3 things..CDC, CDA & baby bonus.
So do not worry, the CDA is not affected. We are still getting 6K..
Thank you, Happy MTB for the clarification...
So actually there are 3 things:
(3) Baby Bonus
The MCYS website needs to be modified to communicate the info more effectively.
Oh Thanks Happy MTB!
Yayyyy... we getting the CDA and Baby cash bonus.. This is great!
Ya.. Phew.. hahaha..
any mummies gg to the baby expo sales tomorrow?
I'm going too, in the afternoon - where is it again?
oh! so now all mommies can go shopping w/o stress (got baby bonus loh) ho..ho..ho....
shortbellerene - I might be gg tomorrow. Anyway there are many sales gg on at the Expo like crocs, baby, electrical & food.
cygo, you're funny.
hubby & i already bought baby cot, diaper changing station, several sets of baby clothes, mittens, socks, caps etc.
i still need to buy breast pump, milk bottles, pacifers, diapers, blankets, baby toiletries, cream & towels, stroller, car seat etc...
We went today and the AVENT store is right near the door, so I bought three products from them:
1) Single Electric Breast Pump for $199 [RRP $329] (I also checked in my Mothercare brochure -which I took along for price comparison- and it too advertises it for $329).
It's the model that is electric, but you can also use as a manual pump if you want. My colleague told me she had it and liked it because with the manual option, there is greater suction so sometimes you need it.
I got a free gift with it too - 6 pieces of fabric/washable breast pad.
2) Set of 4 x 260ml Advanced bottles ('Extra durable') for $48.90
We almost got the starter kit which had 2 x 125ml and 2 x 260ml bottles for $35 (plus a cleaning brush and pacifier) [RRP $49]. However, the sales girl pointed out that the bottles in that kit were not the 'extra durable' type and might scratch/get stained easily, so we opted for the set of 4 x 260ml 'Advanced' bottles instead. I know that 2 of these 260ml bottles costs $36.90 normally - saw them tonight at one of the stores at Vivo City. So it was a good deal.
3) Box of 20 Food Storage cups (freezable, microwaveable, stackable) - 10 x 180ml + 10 x 250ml for $30.90.
We also bought some clothing:
- 5 pack of Carter's wiggle-in bodysuits (brand 'Just one you', made by Carter's) for 3mths size = $15
- 3 neck bibs for $10
Did anyone else get any good deals? What did you buy there?
