gosh didnt know about this rule at all!! was just telling my hubby we should take baby on her 1st mrt ride...but how to when i cant even bf my baby if she starts crying for milk?!
This is really shameful for singaporeans to have such strict and rigid laws imposed upon us if there is a petition count me in!
i think i'll never bring my girl on mrt ....whats the use?child abuse man!
Wah they think we got so much time, alight at the next stop and approach them for further instructions should the need arise for our babies to feed. crazy. by the time we do all that, our babies turn blue already.
some more my 3mth old daughter is the impatient type. If she's hungry, means she's hungry. must chop-chop give. if not she'll wail her head off.
its so degrading to know that they assume anyone who drinks will spill the water.
actually i think... its the ppl who cause this to happen... not the law too strict or what.. think bout it.. we used to be able to eat chewing gum anywhere anytime and its selling like other countires(everywhere) but then why suddenly kana ban? those younger generation may not know but for me, i grew up eating gums everyday! i love them so much but then there are jsut ppl who are 'not automatic' enough.. eat and anyhow throw, stick them anywhere etc.. i kana them on my skirt, jeans, heels many times . then government started fining these ppl but still they dont change! so what happen?? ban ? there goes the gums...so should we say cos sg government shameful for such strict rules? why dont we say we singaporeans are shameful that we need government to handle us like a kid? if in the first place we know how to keep the country clean, the government wont need to do all these... now im staying in japan where gums are selling anywhere everywhere but then honeslty speaking, all these yrs i see no gums on the floor, on the chair and all! if i dont know here selling gums, i wiould have thought gums are ban here as well cos japanese keep their country so clean!
same for the smrt issue.. if wanna blame, blame it on the black sheep. not the government. why dont these ppl do some self reflect? and they dont come up with such rules ONLY for breastfeeding mummies...btw, is it clearly stated that breastfeeding is not allowed as well? cos i thought it wont dirty the train in any sense? unless they wanna stop it cos they feel breastfeeding shouldnt be done in public .. hehe
btw mummies.. sg not so big right? you wont be taking a 2hrs ride? y dont you all feed the baby before getting on the train so the baby wont be crying for hunger?? i usually dont wait till baby crying for milk then feed her . i feed her when i got the time n the chance...eg if im going out, i will feed her first though its not her milk time.. simply cos i dont want her to be crying for milk outside when its not so easy to find a place to feed her...
** im jsut stating my opinion. dont agree dont scold me lol

annie...it seems that even breastfeeding is not allowed i'm just thinking that its unfair for certain genre of people for eg. mommies with young infants to have to comply to such strict rules they should be bit more flexible for infants...yah sg not big travelling time not that long even from one end to another...i also feed baby before her mealtime when we're out as long i see a nursery rm i'll go in n feed...but sometimes baby being fussy she wanna suckle tats when she'll yell...
nevermind i think i'll not bring baby on train anytime soon unless on few stops n make sure she is super full before that haha
wah.. breastfeeding wont dirty train .. y cannot..lol
cause to them, bf-ing is 'eating'/'drinking'...
wahahhaah breastfeeding is SUCKING
definition of sucking vs eating/drinking
1. to draw into the mouth by producing a partial vacuum by action of the lips and tongue: to suck lemonade through a straw.
2. to draw (water, moisture, air, etc.) by or as if by suction: Plants suck moisture from the earth. The pump sucked water from the basement.
3. to apply the lips or mouth to and draw upon by producing a partial vacuum, esp. for extracting fluid contents: to suck an orange.
4. to put into the mouth and draw upon: to suck one's thumb.
5. to take into the mouth and dissolve by the action of the tongue, saliva, etc.: to suck a piece of candy.
6. to render or bring to a specified condition by or as if by sucking.
no no wrong.. not suck milk.. its suck NEH! lol
I think there are just gonna be strict and hard on the initial stages only. After that, the inspectors will relax a bit and people may start to go back to the habit of eating and drinking. let's keep our fingers cross.
Coz of the adult black sheeps who eat in train like they are at fast food joints/hawker ctr - parents like us with small lil children travelling in train gotta suffer too. DARN!
