[QUOTE=Apr gal;684921]Hi Blackie
Glad to know a caring husband out there. And thanks for yr recommendation.
I am still considering a live in or day time nanny. Could you share yr exp on aunty Shuqing? Is she easy to get along?
Hi Apr gal,
Well, both my wife and I did not set any expectation on the confinement lady. We were happy as long as she did what she was supposed to do. In fact, I must said she did very well looking our baby boy and my wife. I felt so "relaxed" in a way. Auntie Shuqing is easy-going, responsible, initiative and patient. If $$ is not a concern, then, I will suggest you hire her as your stay-in full-time nanny. You will feel very well taken care of. I heard there are people have conflicts with the confinement lady but not for us. She is easy to get along with so long you are not too demanding n picky over small little things.
Thanks for yr useful advice.
Hello... Am new here.
just feeling lucky that I'm one of the few that emerge and manage to have my confinement finsih with a "smile". Gotten this contact from my colleague and thank heavens! its's stress-free and rewarding! Hope mummies out here have another source to get contact. you may email me at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hoping to post a video of here here... (check with the moderator first)! Am not trying to 'promote business' but rather encourages mummy (esp first time mum) with little or no experience get the required help and knowledge from experience and reliable nanny (recommending my nanny to you). Her name is Amy (Yoke Peng), 46yrs of age. cantonese and well-versed with confinement knowledge and cooked very delicious confinement meals during my confinement. Her simmered pig's stomach is very delicious and she also cooks sea cucumber with du zhong tonic are the two dishes I missed most! During the night... I had very ample rest as we knows Amy is doing a good job b'cos we seldom hear our infant cries.... she targets to attend to our infant before she cries so that I (a sensitive and light sleeper) could rest well. She attends to my c-section wound with care and was very experience in clearing my block ducts.... thanks to her suggestion my hubby and I could get ample rest during the night b'cos I latch during the day and pump out my breast milk at night. My sister-in-law had engaged her this month and I simply went over for her cooking!
On personal quote:
My personal confinement experience was just to gather confinement information from my surrounding relatives, friends and even colleague's wife and decide if engaging a CL is really worth...Amy shared her numerous confinement experience with me and I do agree with her that each person "deserves" to have our 'OWN' confinement experience and not to follow other people's experience.
Being a first time mum.. I faithfully and sincerely in giving the "BEST" to my infant but rather find 100% latching on too tedious and time consuming. I'm glad Amy did follow my way initially supporting stringe feed my infant when my milk did not arrive but she did advise me that eventually with little milk, my infant's jaundice will shot up and it really DID! With the two days in the hospital was indeed stresssful but I was more annoyed when eventually the hospital feed my infant with FM! After discharge... I begin to take charge of my confinement.... feeding with all my breast milk and supplement FM.
Amy helped with my c-section wounds and along with my preference in food, she suggested and planned my confinement meals. I never have to worry about my infant care or least my household chores.....I can safely leave it to Amy to do it.
I do not have any qualms in recommending my CL to anyone deserving her. You may email me.
I would like to recommend/refer my confinement nanny to this forum.
Her name is May, a malaysian.
May charges very reasonably and she do for local and overseas (overseas different charges of course)
She is very systematic, neat and clean, she is easy, she is not the calculative sort and i must say she has great initiative, and she has a very positive attitude. She is not the gossip sort and she has great adapting skills.
Most importantly she is very experienced and very patient. She is good with her cooking for mommy who needs alot of nourishing and she handles baby really well. It is very comfortable to have her around.
As i am doing total breast feeding, she knows what and what not to cook for me which at this point food consumption is very important as what i eat is what the baby feeds.
During her stay, she does all the marketing.
She cooks for my hubby and myself. If my hubby do not want confinement food, she is able to make something different. Just let her know what to do or make. I stay with my family but during the confinement period they are mostly away. However when they are back, May will cook for them also. I normally will work on the menu with her. For me she cooks only 2 meals as i am not someone who wants a heavy breakfast. But if you want her to make all 3 meals she can.
She do the laundry for baby, hubby and me. She dont do ironing. But she will fold the clothes neatly.
She sweeps and mops the floor, also she cleans the bathroom for me. We didnt request her to do all these but she did it out of her own initiative.
Also with her vast experience, she is a good source when you are uncertain with what's up with the newborn. she will teach and guide you. I learnt alot from her.
I was lucky to have her even though i contacted her last min but fortunately she is free to do for me.
She is suppose to fulfill a month (4 weeks) confinement but i extended her for another two weeks. I would love to extend her for another month but she is travelling and after that, she has an overseas confinement duty. Honestly i have no idea what will i do when she leaves.
My family ( my parents and hubby) and i are fond of her and she really love our boy. I am sure we will miss her and her food.
I strongly recommend her and if i have a #2 i definitely get her back.
You may wish to contact her at 98646165 or +60127055420
Hi Everyone, I would like to recommend a good confinement nanny that have just finish doing confinement for me. She is auntie Siew from Tangkak, M'sia. She have taken good care of my baby girl,very attentive to her as I did'not hear my baby cry often and auntie will attend to her within minutes once she start crying.
Auntie Siew is also very hygine as she will mop and clean the kitchen everytime after cooking and does'not mind to help me with some light house chores(moping, washing toilets and etc). She will also do all the marketing for me daily as the market is just few blocks away.
Every meal she will prepare a big bowlof soup for me to boost my breast milk supply and will prepare dinner for my husband as well for dinner.
I'm not receiving any token from her for writing this, it's just my little appreciation to her for taking good care of me and my baby girl during my confinement month. Btw, she is a stay in confinement nanny with me for 28 days which gives me a good night sleep at night as she will take care of all the night feeding.
She is contactable at M'sia 016-6870058 / SG-83058350 if you are interested to check her out.
I would like to recommend my CL who is from KL. Basically, she saved us after our original CL tried to scam us. On a short notice, she took the earliest bus to come down to Singapore (we'd to go 3 days without CL). When she came, the first thing she did was look at our fridge to see what she needs to buy, then she went out with my husband to buy a week's worth of groceries and clear our fridge to make space for the ingredients.
Due to our inexperience caring, my baby girl actually lost weight but with my CL, she has steadily gain weight and by 3 wks, my girl is 4kg! My CL will wake up to give my girl her night feeds (twice every night) so I can rest and sleep well. She also helps with light household chores cos I dont't have a maid. She is a fantastic cook so her dishes varies for every meal and she even wakes up early (6am!)to make my longan drink and then heat up the leftovers and cook fresh rice for my husband to bring to work. We are growing fat! We are taking down her recipes which she is more than happy to share. She even cook extra for my in-laws to bring home so even our extended families are happy with her.
She is so good that Chinese couples in America will fly her over to help with their confinement. She is truly a baby whisperer!
We are indebted to her for helping us out so much! If you would like to contact her, PM me as she is hot property.
Hi smalleyes, can you pm me her contact pls? If possible, kindly share your name so that she will know the kind soul who recommended her. Thnks.
Hi smalleyes, would you pls share her contact? My CL can't make it in last minute and i am going to due soon. Thanks
Hi J324, I'll PM you her contact!
Is your CL doing daytime confinement? I am actually looking for a daytime CL but not easy to find one..thanks!
She's from KL so I dont't think she does just daytime. Why dont't you consider a stay-in CL instead? Maybe better so you can have ample rest
May I have her contact? I'm due in mid July. Thanks.
I am really headache as I m staying with in law. But she is working..cannot do confinement gor me. The house does not have extra room for the CL and no choice I have to get a daytime CL. I found one now but not sure is good or not..she quite me $1800 is really ex! Only from 8am to 6pm.. Haizzz..
dont't be stressed out. If you have someone to help you in the day time, you can opt for confinement tingkat. It's also about $1k or more i think.
Smalleyes, Can you share your CL's contact with me?
