Wondering what should mummy prepare before confinement. I can only think of below;
1) Nursing wear x 3
2) Breast pad x 1 box
3) Herbs for shower
clothes to wear during confinement?
1) Loose pants
2) Bedroom slippers
3) Float to sit on
4) Longan + Red dates - for making the Confinement Daily Drink
sit on top incase yr butt pain due to episotomy tear and stitches .....
I also use float..... hahahahaha......
Lucky I borrow fr colleague..... If ask my husband buy, i think wait till my confinement finish he also never buy
cancanmum: it's that bad? think i better get the float then.
adding on for the list: girdle, toning cream (for tummy), breast thermal breast (gel form - can be used hot / cold), nipple cream, maternity mattress pads (prevent staining of mattress).
yeah....so i gotta sit sideways ...lols....
cancanmum: aiyo. sounds bad. what type of float will I have to get (those round one with a hole in the middle type)?
now using it for my son when he goes swimming...not wasted..heee
cancanmum and smiley811: ooo, i see. hahaha. just rang hubby to ask him to help me get one while on his way back from home. he asked me - why need that? i explained and he went HUH? *MEN... rolls eyes
MEN will neb understand lols!!
my mum did my confinement for me, so we bought sesame oil, ginger and dom to cook the confinement meals.
maternity pads - remember to prepare some cloth strips to tie them or buy those adhesive pads so no need to find strips to tie the pad
if you plan to breastfeed, i would suggest you prepare at least 3 boxes of breast pads, in case of milk leaks, you will be able to change the breast pads. also, you may need some nursing bras, at least have 6 to 8 pcs. i kept changing clothes during my confinement as it was very warm....
cancanmum, yes, i also find it a hassle to ask dear husband to buy stuff for me during confinement. men dont understand......
Thanks all.....!! BTW, will need to tie the pads around us? tie where? I intend to use normal pad. Also If i'm going to breast feed, do I still need pad?
Jodav: those pads that need to be tie is referring to the loop kind. If you are using the normal or adhesive pads, you can just ignore that part. For breast feeding, very subjective. Some of my galfriends bleed once every 2-3 months. Some dont't. Better to have some pads at hand to get ready for just in case.
