Is non-stay better or those staying overnight? How much did you pay a non-stay CL?
For stay-in CL/nanny, you also need to consider their meals eg. breakfast, dinner, water bill, shampoo/toothpaste (which my cousin provide for his recent case), usage of detergent which they used to wash theirown clothing(cost is on us so somewill not save for you for the water and detergent -which I use very good brand). But luckily my ex nanny behaved well and after each wash, she will ask if I need the last washed water for washing the balcony or toilet. After washing some demand for free time to iron their clothes. ....etc. Anyway, it all depends luck. Just like choosing a maid.
wow. in that case, prob will take a stay-in one, cuz diff by a few hundreds only. And if the baby wans milk at night, the CL is there to help.
Hi Mum2bee, May I have Auntie Tianhua's contact? Thanks!
QUOTE=Mum2bee;461911]hi...i am here in tis thread to recommend my confinement lady....
Auntie Tianhua from malaysian(pahang)
right now i am still doing my confinement....
tis cl is recommend by my friend cl which we find is quite good
bring my baby sun tan at 8 am
cook breakfast,lunch,dinner (for whole family)
bring my dogs for walk & feed my dogs
take care baby
wash clothes(baby & my family)
mop the floor daily
water the plants
the food that tis auntie cook is delicious but not oily
she is very supportive of breast feeding
she also have alot of knowledge on chinese herbal soup(what to boil & cook)
the best ting i like about tis cl is she is not dat kind of i am veri experience you must listen to mi
she have alot of initiative & friendly
in terms of food you can tell her what you like to eat & how you like it to be cooked & she will do it for you
BUT of cos if those food that you cant eat she will tell you you cant eat & drink
and also tis cl is cleaner than my family...always remind us to wash hand before carrying the baby cos we always pat our dogs
and like most cl she will ask you to wear bedroom slippers at home,dont sit on the floor,always bring you red date water to drink,ask you to eat your food,dont walk around bad for your pelvics etc etc And also she need a short afternoon nap cos they have to take care of baby at night
but the best ting about her which i like about is she told mi not to eat ginger,herbal stuff,wine during the lst week cos scared baby got jaundice
she uses shallots & lemon grass in the food instead to get rid of the wind for mi
tis auntie also always eat the leftover night food(which i feel quite bad but she insisted to eat cos she dont like to waste)
overall she is beter than what i expected cos after listening to all the MOnster CL in forum
example:extremely old school type,nagging,bossy,lazy,dirty type
i am so scared dat i will be in depression mode haha
but i glad dat i am fine hehe
right now i am happy to share tis cl with your guys here
i have no commission and also not in any relationships term with tis cl just purely find her good that is all
as for her charges i tink you need to call her personally to chk
cos she charge mi might be more x
mine is a family of 5 plus 3 dogs with no maid
can pm mi for num if anybody interested [/QUOTE]
May I know if there are recommendations of good CL from agencies? I decided to use agencies, in case I meet a lousy CL, I can quickly get her changed by calling up the agency.
Pls let me know if you have good recommendation.
Hi All Mummies to be,
I just finished my confinement and thought i should share with you about the good confinement nanny that i engaged. The week before I went for labour, I am 71kg. Comparing to now, 59kg. I had lost 12 kg after giving birth, mostly thanks to my confinement nanny. Before pregnancy, my health condition was very poor. My face was often as pale as paper. After birth, with my confinement nanny's receipe, I feel more energetic and i can see my health gradually turning for the better than before.
People often say that pregnant mothers tend to drop loads of hair after birth, which is true. However, to help me, my confinement nanny put some herbs in my red date tea which I took for a week and it alleviated my condition! In fact, only few strands of hair drop per day when combing. Its unbelievable that just my red date tea alone have 8 different kind of herbs used...
Mine was natural birth but without any epidural neither nor any pain relieve except the laughing gas. Therefore, after birth, I can feel the extreme pain. In chinese medicine studies says, meals with chicken or egg are not allow during the first 12 days. However, I didnt know about this, hospital's confinement food comes with herbal chicken, I ate the whole bowl. Plus, my grandma boil black chicken, I drank all. I was in great pain the first week. Lucky my nanny know how to help me. She ask me wash with salt water. At first, I thought this confinement nanny is crazy, the wounds sure extremely painful to be contacted with salt water. I still challenge her on this. In the end, I followed her instruction because the pain was unbearable that I have to try. Surprisngly, the next day, the pain almost gone...
My baby has serious blocked nose and was not able to drink well. He wakes up hourly for milk, even at night! Thankfully, my confinement nanny was very patient, she wakes up to feed him without fail. I then brought my baby for a checkup during the 2nd week, the doctor said that by right my baby should be skinny due to his trouble of ingesting well. Surprisingly, he weighs 5.2kg that day (baby at birth weighs 3.6kg). With only 2 weeks plus, he grew so much. My nanny even volunteered to stay for another week after confinement (usually 28 days) to look after the baby with no extra charge!
She said being a confinement nanny is her interest and definitely not because of money. With more than 20 years experience, I trust her to taking care of me and my baby as well. For the one month, she really did a very great job. So mommies, to those who have not found a good, responsible confinement nanny for yourself and is still in dilemma, you may consider her. Message me for her contact details!
Cheers to motherhood!
Wonder if you can provide your confinement lady's contact.
Hi, You may want to try my confinement lady. My confinement is ending soon.
Her name is : Wang Ya Yu (Aunty Geok) from Malaysia
Hi, Can I have some contacts for CL? Im looking for one too and no idea where to look for...Thanks a million!!!
Hi all, i am doing my confinement now, and would like to introduce my confirnement lady- Aunt Kiau to those who are interested, she is very handworking , do all the house work, cook for the family and take care of baby and myself. she is very hygiene and motherly..those who is interested you may contact her directly at 9094 2456 or 017-7165175 and tell them you want the same service that you provided to Sarah
For me, i will not ask my mother in law to take care of me. No matter what, she's still your in-law. You can't throw temper or tell her off when she's wrong. So, I will rather spend some money on CL rather than attract conflicts.
ya, I agree CL is so hard to book lei....my gf recommend me one which is always kena book by others...i recommend to my sister In law, she didnt manage to get, and me also...haha...we not fate with her and so now i better faster find one, i scare wait later more difficult to find...my first one is done by my mom, but now she will help me take care of my elder one, so i will have one CL to fully take care of me...hehe...i think better if not my mom will be so tired...
I booked one CL already. She's now doing confinement with a friend. Heard that she's good and clean. 2.1k. Is that expensive? In June this year.
Oh i c...$100 more is okay. As long as she's good.
My CL, Auntie Chong has more than 18years of experience in taking care of CF mummy and baby. She is a great cook and she would prepare food to your preferences. She would even cook for my hubby if he is home for meals.
Good knowledge of herbal soup. She can cook a type of herbal soup to expel the bad blood in the uterus after delivery. dontít be surprise if you suddenly have heavy flow of menses as its good to have it out of your body instead of inside.
Auntie Chong can be contactable at HP: 81535205(S'pore line)/+60167209255(Msia line)
Are confinement ladies from agency any good?
I agree with Autum. Get a good CL as this will affect your body when you want to have a second baby. The experienced CL will know what is best for you...
Yep, I am using Autum's CL.(my EDD Aug) Thanks Autum...
Btw guys, just wanna share something with you. One of the MTB from forum said her friend's CL MIA. That's very sad.
CL MIA! Aiyo...that's a big big headache. Guess i will call the CL at least 2 times before i'm due, just to be sure.
