BTW, after birth, when we are still staying in hospital, usually do friends visit you then? Its only 2-3 days?
For Chinese can only do earlier bt not later...
I tried Neo catering n Four season before for co event, both also not bad.
Hubby suggest to do it at chalet thn no need to clean up after that...
Hello! Confinement was so unbearable for me!! Couldn't wait for it to end. Haha. Keep perspiring cos CL will make me drink and eat "heaty" stuff cos our body bodies will be "cold" after delivering. The soup I drank will be boiled until super hot so will perspire even more!
But I play cheat, sleep in air-con every night hehe. Temperature of 25 degrees or higher . Afternoons will be the most unbearable! Bathe already still will sweat cos of the food and drink.
I didn't really like the dry shampoo. Seemed to give me headache everytime I used it.. Bought batiste brand. Still have a bit leftover. Can pass to whoever wants it I live in Tampines.
Think the shampoo doesn't work if the hair is REALLY oily. I used it after a few days in hospital cos I didn't know there was such a thing as dry shampoo! By then, my hair was very gross already =/
Can buy the ang ku kueh yourself. As for the red eggs, you can either boil it yourself or I believe there are some places which have a package that sell red eggs and ang ku kueh. Anyone knows?
I attended 2 baby showers before. Usually just go for the buffet. Nothing to bring home. Unless I never attend the baby shower, then I will receive those cake vouchers.
I thought of hotels before, but the logisitics also quite fan, like where can baby sleep, and travelling with baby need to bring a lot of things.. and if people give you gifts, then got to lug back home.
So in the end, I decided to hold it at home. baby so small will not be exposed to outside viruses too. Then, will close all the doors to bedrooms, and let guest hangout in hall, kitchen and corridor only. So when it comes to cleaning, also limited to 2 areas only. Should be quite easy ..hahaha...
Anyway I have a Baby Plus book. Got a few bakeries advertised inside.

Haha. So many to check out I didn't get to celebrate baby's first month though since she's in NICU. Next week coming 2 months!!
Oh if do before one month means confinement lady still b here? She will mind or not, like ask her do double work. Lol
I have been to a few baby shower before n some really chaotic ... you will have to invite relatives fm both side, thn all sure will go into the room n c baby...
Thn the food is placed outside, so a lot of ppl walk in n out, thn kids run arnd, spilled water n food...
Sometimes its hard to reject aunties n the elders ... they will insist seeing baby... they will approach your parents n in laws....
yah hard to reject them if they want to kiss yr baby , unless you know that they are these type, then mabbe you can faster hold your baby and prevent them from kissing. hopefully they are zi dong and dont't anyhow kiss kiss ..
I was thinking or can push the cot out and park at one corner of the hall for people to see, instead of them hogging the room...
I think cannot expect the CL to do all clearing up bah... maybe get hubby or family members to help out ... CL shld take care of baby when you entertain guests.... which is also good, at least she can tell those who want to kiss baby off...after all not her relatives, she dont have to b pai say.
have not't plan for the baby shower celebration yet, meanwhile still need to do some shopping n baby clothes washing, btw, do we need to get pump n breastpad now ? if yes , any recommendation?
Bought medela cream yesterday, my nipples feeling much more better now,, any mummies experienced transparent liquid discharge from breast? i did yesterday, my friend said could be the colostrum
