My confinement lady has drunk my ginseng drink after she made then add in water and boil again to let me drink the second time.
When I have asked her why the ginseng like so strange because very plain. She put the blame on my husband and ask him why he buy these.
No wonder she has been so energetic seldom see her sleep in the afternoon and also her face very reddish in colour.
Luckily, I have CCTV then I saw everything from there. I feel very sad that she has lied and cheated me.
Confront her and show her the evidence if necessary....and terminate her service......
If your baby is sleeping with her, dont know how she will treat your baby at night.....mayb what I say might scare you, but for me better to be careful especially after the confrontation.
This has happened 8 years ago which I was also new mummy. I did not talk to her and maybe she also did not know that I have installed camera. I just stopped drinking ginseng. I also let her continue to work until 1 month end. Now, I feel that I am very stupid.
If I know mummysg earlier then I can learn from others mummy and get advises.
thats terrible !!! i sometimes also tell my mum dont offend her maid as dont know when she cook got (lok sau keok) add some stuffs!!
This is what my mum told me also.. she told me to be very careful of confinement lady. Why? because they wll usually take the 1st version of the tonic they cook for you. That's why they can maintain and be so energetic. I will be very pissed off if my confinement lady is like that.
i hope to have a good and honest hardworking CL this Jan when I gave birth...
Pray for the best! =)
Hoep the cls all mummies engage are good ones.....
Sometimes i think confinement ladies is about luck. For me personally i am having bad experience with my CL. *so sad*
She 'melted' my breast pump whilst sterilizing it and thus damaged the funnel and i can no longer pump When i asked her about it, she was saying that it is not her fault and that there were some workers in the day repairing my cabinet and that they spoilt it. It is clearly obvious that the damage of the funnel is caused by overheating the plastic for too long a duration, and yet she can blame the workers fixing my cabinet when she is the only one who sterilizes anything that is used by baby and i
She did not keep dry the umbilical cord of my daughter and thus, an infection set in and was foul smelling. had to bring my daughter to a pediatrician... When asked her why she did not keep clean, she said that the hospital normally issue broken spirit to clean the umbilical cord but as KK did not so she never bother to clean. I have already told her on day 1 that KK no longer gives broken spirit and just to cleanse and wipe with cooled boiled water and keep it dry to prevent infection.She went on to add that my girl is a crier when come to bath time, so must 'chop chop fast fast' finish bathing so that she wun cry so much
The last straw is dirty milk bottles. The bottles i used to store EBM for night feeds were not washed clean and there is still milk stains on the inside of the bottle despite the fact that it is already washed and sterilized. When asked about it, she say that cuz the bottles were not washed immediately after use and left to stand before cleaning thus the milk 'harden' the funny thing is that she is the one who is doing the 4AM feeds and she wants to go back to sleep, thus will leave the bottles to wash in the AM. when i asked her does she not see that it is dirty when washed before sterilizing, she said yar, but cannot be avoid. if want to avoid, then in future soak . I'm like 'if you know then why dont you do it'
