This is a discussion on EDD Oct 2012 Mummies within the Year 2012 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Anyone bought baby cot already?...
Anyone bought baby cot already?
I'm considering 2nd hand too.. so much cheaper just a little concern about the cot history... hehe think too much
Saw some shops selling at S$359, convertible to junior bed, come with Bedding set & mattress.
But few mattress choices with different top-up price..
foam/ with holes/ anti dustmine/ latax... confusing does it matters much
Baby Cot/Bed 99, Singapore - baby furniture Singapore
Also saw taobao selling nice and cheap baby cot... too bad taobao dont't deliver overseas...

I think as long as is still usable not too 'spoil' should be ok.. wow 359 is quite normal... but if you intend to have a second child it would be good investment if you buy a new one.. dont be like me, buy thinking wont give birth then throw away -.-'' now i have to source high and low for the 2nd hand one.. the best remedy to remove dustmite is 'sunshine' mattress if you sunshine once a week would be good
For me, my hubby dream to have one boy one girl... but I'm old already so really dont't know if will have the 2nd one... see how it goes with the 1st first, probably will be daunted
sigh.. is a long story.. We thought that our mother in law would help us in the confinement and help take care of our baby, but in the end i did the confinement myself, with only 2weeks help from my mum... as for cooking food for confinement is my house downstairs the auntie... I was on C-sect and struggling with everything.. lucky thing is I did not work and take care of my of my dear daughter by myself as my hubby need to earn for our living.. Every 3hrs i will have to feed my daughter... sighs.. tats y is quite a freak out during my confinement period -.-'
By the way any moms here delivering in Mount E. ? Just curious.
If situation allows, think I'll opt for natural though all options r equally scary
Why you had C-sect for your first? Care to share your experience?
My mother said she will help me through the confinement, just worried it will be too tiring for her.
EDD around Oct, isn't end of july too early? And may I know how much it will cost to hire a maid from PEM?
And i was wheel in with labour pain and within 15mins my daughter came out.. LOL.. Quite dramatic for my first child... But i can say C sec is quite painful and movement is very very restricted. It took me 2 weeks to stand straight up...
I choose to hire maid now is to train her and get her ready for my birth of the next child.. total cost for agent fee around 1k.. after you select the maid then when the maid arrive you will pay the loan around 6-7mths... approx sgd450 permth. i can msg you the sales person.
Seems like alot of baby refuse to turn cases, my colleague also like that for her 1st child, and gynae dont't encourage natural for the next, so she had C-Sect for both her child.
36wk is 1 month earlier, lucky you not working at that time... Currently I've arranged my ML only a week before my EDD, now thinking if I shld arrange it earlier.
So the maid will work for 6-7 mths? Need to arrange a bedroom for her to sleep is it?

Is it encouraged to go for Thomson Medical Center pre natal classes ? I heard from my friend that after birth they have free classes too. How ? ): I'm afraid I can't bf properly. Dilemma. ):
The pain is still quite ok, until when the contractions start and last around 5-10 mins.. i was on the laughing gas and i sniff till i gong gong.. i think you should prepare early for your confinement plans in case last min gt anything..
yeah quite a surprised for me, because i have just finish one of my accounts exam and was expecting to finish another exam on thursday so that i can get my full cert.. but my naughty daughter kick the water bag after i finish my accounts exam on the very day -.- and i have to defer my exams for another 6mths.. DUH!
for the maid, they will work for you 2 years. but you have to pay up front for their pay for at least 6-7 mths because this is the money they loan from the agent.. after the maid finish 2years, they will require you to send them home or stay, is case to case basis..
Any of you feel thirsty always?
I keep drinking water & going toilet, day & night
Wonder if its normal...

Anyone feeling lots of aches and pains?
