Dear all parents ,
Just checking where do you all bring your baby for outing??
My gal is coming to 1 year old soon. Thinking of bringing her somewhere to celebrate her birthday but dont know where to...
Any suggestion ??? Thanks
How about the zoo?
for me, im bringing my son for a photoshoot @ studio loft the day before his birthday. on actual birthday, ive ordered a cake to celebrate at home. just me, my husband & my dog . no extended family involved cos sure alot of comments.
Thanks, Maybe I just bring her to the Zoo together with my wife in the morning..
Then buy her a cake in the evening and take some pictures...
Depending on how your gal is like. Does she enjoy sitting in stroller and watching things happen outside the stroller? Or does she need to be carried in arms after sitting in stroller for a while? It will make all the difference to you parents, as it will be tiring....
Also, I think it may not be so worthwhile to go to the zoo as the 1yo may not be able to enjoy watching the animals as yet. My experience also with the Spore zoo is that the animals are usually sleeping in the day due to the heat. so it may just be bushery and greenery to watch Its quite a distance to get to the zoo, and troublesome if you dont drive.
Personally, for me , If I were to plan such an outing, I would go somewhere where there is a mix of venues, as contingency in case of rain, bad weather, grouchy baby etc.
Places I can think of:
a. Botanic Gardens (yes, still subject to good weather, but at least got sheltered food court and shelters around the gardens to take a rest from the weather)
b. Henderson wave (can make a stop at Hort Park)
c. Marina Barrage
d. Discovery Centre (Science Ctr)
