Haha think i bring more....
I got long pants too coz romper might b too cold at certain places... I bring brolly too... But amt of stuff depends on hw long in bringing her...
Like e other i go back office.. Brought 1 spare diaper n 1 set of romper.. Put bib n 1 hanky warmed ebm..
Bean bag i always bring if i use stroller n 1 towel...lol
Oh yea wet tissue :-)
1 set clothes
2 terry cloth
2 burp cloth
1 extra bib
I dont use diaper bag i just put stuffs separately to a ziploc bag and just use any of my bags
Can I take a poll here hw many mummies would wanna put our Little one at infant care or at mum's place? In a dilema now...
my mother in law offer to care for our lil monster....if she didnt we put him in infant care
Hmm i rather get a nanny to look after my son at home but nowadays it's hard to get one who can be trusted and wont abuse my child, unfant care is nice.. baby's under professional care but it's a hussle to send and fetch baby specially on a rush hour and of course the sickness that our baby can catch there. As per putting in mother in law, my mother in law is too faraway so it isnt my option.. But it could be as good as getting a nanny.. Ill be rest assured my baby is well taken care of at home and not with strangers.. So ill choose mother in law except Camcam's mother in law LOL joke :-P
long day for me tomorrow...half the day at Kandang Kerbau Hospital ....
Haha.. I will like to place my girl with my mum than infant care. Someone that will know her pattern and able to help me take care of her if have any night function or wedding dinner to attend, compared to infant care.. But, it all zoom down to your relationship with your mum or mother in law..
piglim: no need so much stuff! I dont't bring blanket, I only bring one set extra romper, 3 diapers, no nappy cream, wet wipes, tissue (for myself), small changing mat, one bib, two very small towels (to wipe up drool and spit). that's it!
the more you bring your baby out the more experienced you will be. I've literally been going out every weekday by myself and baby.. now it's so easy and I enjoy heading out, really enjoying my maternity leave having lunch at any restaurant/cafe/food court I want, then a coffee and book later! sigh. all these will end so soon
justamom: infant care for me, not much choice. I think in some ways, infant care is not the end of the world. professional care takers, other infants, toys, people around, would be more stimulating (hopefully), than say, being left with a helper or mum/mother in law. I'll of course, spend as much time as poss with baby once I'm done with work!
I will prefer mother in law.. but also depends on how hands on n how clean.. would prefer professional help if possible but its ex.. plus infant care will contract alot of germs.. rush hr is an issue and if they got outbreak of hfmd or chicken pox, you gotta have plan B for your child to stay at home.. baby still young so i prefer a house , limited exposure..
As i quite kiasu and also go iut for longer time..plus baby has bad reflux, puking often on clothes n use up alot if burp cloth...
My diaper bag contains :
1 Long pants
1 pair of socks
1 baby cap
5-6 Burp cloth
1 Baby jacket (if i wash in time to bring out)
2 Muslin swaddle cloth
1 Buckwheat Pillow
1 toy (her fav is a clip fan to distract her)
1 Breastfeeding blanket
1 Diaper change mat
Water Bottle (mine)
1 mini hand sanitizer (always forget to use)
My diaper bag is usually super packed till cannot close up zip lol... sometimes i bring an extra bag to hang on stroller.. put manduca carrier n hubby & my extra tops inside...
Any tips on how to do it better? Actually i never use up all before.. always left alot to bring back... but you never know when the massive poop comes n leak all over.. happened to me twice so far.. leaked to baby's back n up! Plus she was wearing a super tight romper! I had to slowly take it off careful not smudging poop onto her hair!
Hey lizzy same here. I put ziplock bag then into any of my bigger bags...
I would prefer my mother in law... Mum too old... So far my dg1 is well taken care of.. mother in law will teach her basic chinese characters n words numbers n english too.... Plus will speak dialect..
probably when i started working my mother in law will be the main caretaker... but actually i'd love to put in infant care if can find vacancy, convenient n affordable. i love my mum but she's so eccentric at times haha. she likes to pounce on my baby n that startles her a lot! then i always have to tell my mum off >< but she still does it. zzz... besides that, it will be too inconvenient to send to my parents' place.
i wonder now would the function room fit us all...since some of us carrying so many items :X....
Wah meltie ; TATS ALOT OF STUFF you R CARRYING!! Goosh n I thought mine's alot alrdy!
How come you gals r bringing bibs? have your bbs started drooling?
Reiann; I brought along blanket cos my son not wearing long pants n his thighs r exposed. Shopping malls in Sg r damn cold! Even I'm shivering myself. Plus now with e rainy season, dont want him to catch a cold. In fact I also bring along a sweater for him. Two wks ago I brought my son to a friends wedding dinner at mandarin oriental.. My son was alrdy wearing long sleeve n 3/4 pants. But it was reallyyyyu cold, made him wear e sweater n on top of that use e blanket to cover his waist down. The diaper bag I'm using is e Thomson medical one. Cos it's less gu niang for hubby to carry mah... He did suggest taking his backpack though..
For me, my son under mother in law care. Seriously if the passing of virus/sickness not common I will definitely opt for infantcare. But then again if put my son there our budget will b really tight. However when my son turns 18mths no matter what I want him in the play group. At e moment Ren the unhappiness with my mother in law.
felicity my son got ENT appt...2nd one...when he was born wasnt breathing...so was on ventilator for 2 days in NICU...then had to be on iv drip and feeding tube and antibotics...so they are scare the meds may cause some problems...thats why need to check his ears....
and every 2-3 mths got to go back to check on milestone to make sure he has hit his milestones....
there goes my childcare leave and annual leave...but i knw he is ok...just worried about his ops for his bird the most...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypospadias he has hypospadias which needs surgery when he is about 2 yrs old....

Wa meltie! you have a lot in your diaper bag! Mine only has the following:
1 spare romper
4 diapers (sometimes 2 or 3 if I forgot to "refill")
1 changing mat
2 burp cloth
Cooler bag with bottles of ebm
1 flask of hot water
1 cup to contain hot water for warming ebm
Fan (those clip on stroller kind in case baby hot)
Ruyi oil (if I rem to bring)
Desitin (if I rem to bring)
And ya.. I would prefer my mum, followed by mother in law, followed by baby sitter, followed by infant care in order of preference for childcare.. I trust my mum more than mother in law but my mum stays in jurong! I can't bring baby back every night unless I move to my mum's house too! mother in law has too many patterns (e.g. insist I pull bottle out of baby mouth after feeding half e bottle even though baby still happily suckling to burp her before continuing the rest of the feed.. DUH!) but still at least I know baby will b in safe hands.. baby sitter (very reluctant but bo bian) is better than infantcare cos of limited exposure .. Heard so much stories of baby getting sick at infant care.. Sighz.. Actualli best is I take care of baby myself, though this is impossible cos it will b very tight for us to survive on single income.. Sighz..
Oh Piglim.. My girl just pass 3mths.. Started blowing bubbles with her saliva oredi, and then drooooool.. Haha..
lings becareful...she maybe teething soon...
my son is drooling the past 1 week...and blowing bubbles the past 2-3 weeks...and now my mother in law said he starting to show 2 teeth white part ...and she can feel the hardness on the gums ....
Oooh, really? Ok, tomorrow morning shall check out her gums! Haha..Originally Posted by NeSSa:735291
i dare not put my finger inside...scare he bite me LOL...
My diaper bag is same as ling
1 changing mat
1 hot flask
1 cup to warm up ebm
1 extra bottle with milk powder as usually I only bring 1 ebm out though this always not used as I will latch her in the car.
I have not't started to let my gal wear sweater, maybe will start to bring now.
My gal also blow a lot of bubble, she got a lot of saliva and she even choke herself with the saliva.. But she didn't drool a lot though, she is 9wks plus now.. Looking her newborn photo till now, I realized she grew up quite alot now and I am quite impressed to give birth and feed her to such a cutey baby I just finish pumping, going back to sleep but guess I won't be able to sleep long as my princess will wake up soon around 4/5am..
haha i think i ama kiasu mum.. charlotte needs alot of spare stuff.. got once or twice she used up my burp cloth, in the end survived on tissues.. she puked ALOT.. one session can wet 4-5 burp cloth... sigh.. also she flings it off to the floor?! i just keep changing... anyway, uually go out is put bag in stroller.. seldom carry ... or hubby will help.. we drive so easier..
sighhh my baby drank n slept at around 11.30pm.. dont't know why she woke at 2.45am to cry for milk... I think she got alot pf gas.. coz she was squirming like mad.. esp when she drink she can't concentrate.. keep squirming n twisting her body.. tried to burp her, she cry.. so let her burp herself loh.. she kept tugging at my breast.. ouch.. but i also too tired to keep stopping her.. dozed off myself.. woke up at 3.45am, she still drinking! Tugging at times! Gosh! Unlatched her at 4am and went to change her diaper.. super soaked in urine... she cried abit too haizzz only the litte fan could stop her for awhile to prevent her from screaming... rocked her to sleep despite her fussiness... no passing of gas .. put alot of ruyi oil .. just hope she slps well till morning.. super tired.. :/
Any mummies got tips on how you change baby's diapers in the middle of the night? i very scared she strike terror on me by wailing.. which she did afew times.. i had to change coz either it was poop or it has been more than 4-5 hours ... niwadays i change her diaper before last feed so that won't disturb her sleep after her feed... its a challenge! A hungry baby is an angry baby..! A slpy baby is also a fussy n angry baby if being disturbed! :/
Hmmz she's making alot of grunts n fidgeting alot in her cot.... i hope she pass out some air to feel better n sleep thru.... pls baby .. mummy wanna sleep too... :/
