I would like to share my experience on the CL I hving now. This is my 2nd week of confinment and I got this CL thru a popular confinment agency which is on TV before. This CL assigned to me mostly can only speak cantonese with simple mandarin and english. The agency did not inform me about this which is a great barrier between me and the CL cos I hardly can understand her. I feel like kana con.
Her knowledge on performing and taking care of mummy and baby is limited. Furthermore, she is not proactive, can only take instructions. I have no confidence in letting her to look after my baby, instead of resting I have to endure all the pains after delivery and open my eyes wide to ensure my baby is fine and I take the correct confinment food. Anyway, my hubby and I have no choice but close one eye cos there are no one around to help me.
Hence, for mummy who going to engage CL thru agency do ensure you make clear all your requirements to them.
sorry that I do not wish to openly disclose which agency is that. What I can tell is that it is a popular agency which has advertised in Motherhood magazine frequently and appeared in TV. Their office is located at the north side.
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.
