I read about how bad the expo baby fair was so I decided not to go which was a good thig cos I was really tired over the weekend. Me, hubby and maid went to Orchard to check or sterilizer and didn't find the Philips Avent Digital Steam sterilizer model except for Robinson selling at $199. Baby superstore is selling for $179 with free shipping. So I decided not to buy and look to see if there's any better bargains also I doubt since its controlled price. All I found at most places were the 4-in-1 sterilizer which isn't what I want since I'm using Medela bottles n pump as well. So the Digital steam was suppose to be better.
But what I did buy at Robinson was the Philips Avent bundle which contains the steamer cum blender together with some plates, cutleries, cups and some storage cups to store yr own homemade food. Quite a good bundle I believe as the blender alone cost something like $260+. I think I was buying ahead of time sicr my newborn in may will not be having solids until later. Heh but good bundle I wld say.
Definetly you will have milk supply coming in straight after giving birth this will applies to all mummies! NO milk will come out if you are stress... If you r positive.. Definetly you will be able to have supply.
If you decide to full breastfeeding your child for the 1st month then you dont't need to buy a pump. By not worrying & get a successful latch on its advisable for you to attend prenatal class/ or visit a lactation officer to advice you on the techniques before delivery to fully prepared yourself for breastfeeding.
If you r confidence in latching then you can wait till after one month to decide the pump that you want to buy. Some mummies after 1mth of breastfeeding they have no more determination to continue so.. If you bought the pumps.. It will be a waste!
Hello all mummies!~
I'm back from my batam trip. Had a good baby shopping spree there, bought nursing bras at only $5.50 per piece! Amazing...
Got quite abit of the baby necessities there too, plus a nursing pillow for about $34. Hubby did all the carrying...heh heh.
I already bought my breastmilk pump months back... Based on my sister's experience, she had nipple sores by the 2nd week after giving birth. She resorted to pumping out her milk and feeding the baby her breastmilk by bottle on alternate feeds, just to give her nipples some chance to breathe. Works well for her... her baby did not get nipple confusion like what some websites mentioned.
Any mummys here can recommend which brand of milk bottles we should get?
Hi Mummies, does anybody has any idea where to buy nursing bras with bigger cup? So far the biggest size I can find is D D.

Ladies, there is a Mothercare baby fair in March, check it out at...Mega Deals in Singapore
Ladies, anyone of you exp chest pain? Very similar to muscle tear so I cannot differentiate. Been having this pain on top of my left breast till the back of my shoulder blade starting last Wed. Pain went off few days today back again but more intense. Kept feeling the throbbing pain n hurts when I breathe in n out Think tonight cannot sleep well again
We are more or less nearing the end of 2nd trimester, I know 3rd trimester is risky to take pain killers, so I think you should get it treated as soon as possible.
you went to your company doc not your gynae for medicine?? Actually it's better to get medicine from your gynae.. Some medicine from normal gp is not safe for pregnancy. It's very common to have sharp pain at the back bottom ( your tail bone) .. If its bearable then try not to take any medicine. you will feel more pain there during your 3rd trimester.
By taking painkiller .. Yes relieved the pain but it will affect the movement of baby also.. Painkiller helps you relax n you will find that baby move less. So just bear with it now.. During labour.. your tail bone will be terrible painful.. So try to get use to the pain now !!
Only thru this pregnancy then I truly appreciate how 伟大 my mum is.
just joined this forum, realised too many mummy related forums..
my EDD 14 May, girl.. hoping she'll come out either 3 May or 11 May. =) cos these 2 are special dates..
Oh, if any mummies want to buy baby stuff like cloth diapers and if you do have time, try driving into JB (Tuas side),head for Jusco and Tesco. Tesco something like Giant Mega Mart, only bigger. Saw some baby clothes that can be worn at home selling for less than RM10.
Jusco got a Isetan like departmental store, sells plenty of baby stuff like detergent for washing baby clothes and bottles etc etc. Can consider. =) made my first trip there in Jan, heading there in Apr to get the rest of the stuff after listing down things we need to buy.. Hope this also helps.
Oh, I do have urine leakage as well. it's common. Used to have UTI (urinary tract infection) before pregnancy. Pelvic floor exercise did help. Do 3-4 times a day, 10 sets of quick holds and release and another 10 sets of hold, count to 10 and release. It helped lesson the leakages. =)

if you dont have a gmarket acccount and find it troublesome to signup just to buy one item, you can pm me i msg you the seller's number. i dont know her personally, but she was so sweet to call me personally to clarify some issue, even throw in a free gift when i re order. Thought was quite a nice seller and price reasonable.
Did you take their brochure? Can you send the contact to AngelaNg? I am out of town.. didnt carry the brochure out.. Inbetween the salegirl say can always refer to their webby for future purchase.. They have large size....
I am 21 Apr 2nd time mummy...
