This is a discussion on EDD Jan 2013 within the Year 2013 Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; my colleague went for today baby fair, she said super crowded .. I wonder if tomorrow will be more crowded? ...
my colleague went for today baby fair, she said super crowded .. I wonder if tomorrow will be more crowded? If that's the case, it will be tough to get the things we want .. especially for those who still dont know what to buy.
Nope i see mostly baby clothes stalls. Tommy tipee set 169 not sure whether to get
I think the fair should be big, i was gg to have lunch at Changi City Point, but unable to get a seat.
Too many parents, kiddies and prams thats all i can see, must be due to the baby expo fair!
I thought of dropping by after work, but just can't stand the crowd.
I got that set at $169 too at baby kingdom.
Contains steam sterilizer for 6 bottles, 4 anti-colic milk bottles, 1 pacifier, 36 pieces of breast pads, one cooler/warmer bag and i forgot what else.
I think its a good buy though!
wah crowded ... sei .. im still on mrt.. by the time i rch all the parents pang gang alrdy.. sure mre ppl. Aiyo hope i wun get squeezed!
Eekenji: have you found a nanny? If no, seem like you only have maid n infant care as a choice. Previously my sis source for nanny nearby her house then opting infant care. But after that her mother in law volunteered to take care. Think given a choice, I rather choose a nanny nearby n sent baby to her house than maid.. Unless there someone at home to see see look look your maid.
Your on your way to expo now? Its about to rain, my workplace is just behind expo.
I wudnt even bother going with that kind of crowd, am going on Sunday evening, hopefully lesser crowd cause the next day is a schooling day
yep yep omw,.. just gg to see see gt any stuff to buy.. wanna chk out avent steriliser n playpen.. my hubby wrking at airport so i will just walk walk till he knocks off. If i ask him go during wkend he sure that cos wkday he alrdy everyday train to Changi..
Minkx: do share the prices you see for avent sterliser? Thanks thanks.
Finally I end work. What a day to work by myself.
Eekenji: nanny might be a choice. But choosing nanny is almost same as choosing maid. Some nanny isn't that good as well. In terms of experience, hygiene and etc. nanny will tends to do their way cause its the way the brought up children. While maid will have to follow your way because you are the employer. And nowadays I find that not many nanny actually give the real info about their experience and stuff. There are pro and cons to both selection. But if its me. I will choose maid over nanny. Cause at least I know what is going on between maid and baby. Cause nanny I won't get to know until I go pick baby up. I will send maid and baby to either in law's or mum's place so that there will be a supervision on what she is doing. But of course this is my preference, others might have another thinking. So it's still up to you and your hus. Why not you 2 sit down and discuss, write out all the pros and cons then do a comparison. That will help you see clearer I guess.
Mummies: I think cause it's children's day. So most parents are on leave to acc their children. That's why they can go to the fair. I can't stand crowd. I guess I will give today and tomorrow a miss. Still trying to talk my hus in going to the fair with me on Sunday. Cause he thinks that there isn't a need to get cheaper stuff and squeeze with all the people and putting me and baby into a dangerous situation. He is very drama in such things.
Diydee: yup here it comes with a free thermometer as well. Was gonna get, but no atm for my bank here n they dont accept cards! Sad. Hubby not here. Que up till tummy tired.
Minkx: Wow you must be careful too!
Our edd is just 3-4 months away.. have you consider whether to opt for natural or caesarean? How painful is natural labour?
I start to worry bcos time is drawing near!
Some dont accept cards or mostly??

reg stuff at today fair, for playpen i only saw graco pack n play gg for 149, w mattress 188. dont have the brands i want see. hrmm few stores selling nursing bras, one of them gt bra gg for $16 ea.
abit traumatising for me.. as i started feeling bit dizzy. dont go alone, go w hubby.. hubby protect you better.. there was a kid whom i walked passed (i did not bang into him or anyting), he suddenly started whacking my tote bag hard.. several hits! lucky he not tall enuff to rch my tummy! so his fist power hit my thighs.. i was alrdy bit irritated , cos someone's stroller bumped my ankle earlier.. felt mad n i turned to see the culprit n stared( lian style) at the lil boy.. then his daddy came to grab him n told him to stop.. tink back.. poor child i may have scared him staring into his eyes lidat... i gt told off by my hubby afterwards when i told him what happened.
mybeautyrights: I'm not sure if its all stalls, but those i went to only cash and nets so best have backup.
huggies: 19.95 for two packs 44s (people buying boxes)
mamil gold ranges from 48 to 65 depending on the type 1, 2 and 3? not too sure about this cause didnt really read up on the types. hard to move around that area and they have small fencing blocking so sorry couldn't get all the prices of the nappies.
the double electric pump was close to 400 and available also at kiddy palace. lady said they even go to your house the first time to ensure you use it properly. has the option to use single and manual as well and comes with different size attachments. silent machine.
prenatal massage going at $39
I am at work on a Saturday and again I am alone for my team.
You ladies slept so late last night. I saw your updates on the fair. It sounds like a lot of people is there. Hopefully Sunday will be better. But hve to wait for hus. He say I cannot go alone.
I was there at the expo yesterday at 10.45am. There was already a super long queue outside the exhibition.
Its really not safe to go alone, so crowded and so many prams around. I tripped over a pram while trying to buy for a romper for my little one. Thanks goodness nothing happen to me.
Be safe mommies, we are just 3-4months aways from our edd.
Minkx: thanks alot for the update!! We will go see see today.. Will be careful n ask hubby protect. But today may be tough to buy anything. I guess
Aksoh: when can you be off work? Must b very moralizing to work on sat
Mybeautyrights: finally I end work. It is very very demoralizing to work on sat. Every alternate sats i must report to work
Feel like traveling to expo take a look. But hus working. He dont't allow me to go.
Aksoh: at least now you off work need not be struck there..
