Just wanna to share my experience with my CL, I hire this CL-Ying Jie recommended by my sis's friend and met up with her few mths ago. So when I started my first day of confinement, the night before she told me she will take a cab n claim from me, I was quite shocked and she told me normally the bosses will fetch her. I told her alright I will reimburse the cab fare to her.
When she arrived, immediately she cooked lunch n prepared for me.
Guess what she had done!
1) She fried fish with olive oil instead of sesame oil
2) No confinement meal at all. Then she opt to sleep at the living hall as she claimed I was breastfeeding my bb and doesn't require her help at all. Alright I don't mind.
3) Insist my baby wears disposable diaper as my baby is wearing cloth diaper due to extremely bad diaper rash but she told my sisters nowadays nobody will use cloth diaper and disposable diaper will not cause any diaper rash. My sis stand firmed by saying no. In the end, she ignored my sisters and insisted to talk to me. I told her firmly, my baby is experiencing bad diaper rash and no choice need to use cloth diaper.
4) I soaked all the soiled cloth diapers in one pail and one basket of my clothes. Then prepared stool etc for her to wash. In the end, she got the nerve to ask me, "are u washing all the clothes." I told her no, Ying jie, you are the one washing and not me. She told me off by saying, I never wash baby n mummy's clothes. Those bosses hired her had maids at home. I told her straight at her face, I don't have a maid a home. Guess what, unrelentingly she will wash the clothes. Less than 5 mins, she sat at the sofa and started using her hp.
5) I was very pissed off and my sisters said asked her to leave. Before we asked her to leave, she said she doesn't want to work any more. All these happened in only 2 hours.
When I asked my hubby to wash the soiled diapers, she poured 350ml of Kodomo detergent into the pail. My hubby used pails of water to rinse off those bubbles....
Pls avoid this CL-Ying Jie her hp no is 97987217 or her son's hp no 96665479 or house no 64427912. Her address is Bedok Central.
Her age is 77 year old and I hire her $2200 and not $500. I will not hire any CL in the future after this bad experience.
No probHi Dear, saw your post and i find this Ying Jie name familiar and i went to check my list of good and bad confinment list i've created and yes Ying Jie is listed as bad confinment lady. Will add in her contact that you've provided. Thanks for sharing =)
For the first week or so, our milk supply usually is insufficient for baby especially if you have a greedy baby. Some mothers even after three weeks, they are still unable to bring their milk supply up. My CL gave breast milk together with formula to make up the difference. When my milk supply went up, she just give my breast milk through bottle. I try breast feeding my baby for the first few weeks but realised that it is difficult to gauge whether she has consumed enough milk so there are times when she wakes up after an hour wanting to eat. It is also difficult to coordinate pumping time and waiting for baby to wake up.Yan jie was My cl this yr.. basically she was recommended by My mother in law's friend.. was said to b experienced but.. her logics was too irritating.. accusing me n hubby almost everything.. n everyone that carries baby.. making him difficult to fall Zzz at night..or feed him full full w fm to make him last thru the night obviously So she can ZZZ..also ask me to rest well dont bf..cos confinement is to rest..in the end baby nipple confusion n dont wanna My (.)(.) Anymore..
Pros that she cooks well n is clean but have her own logics n wants us to follow n meals cannot b delayed cos will ruin her time to clean up bathe n Zzz..she Zzz at about 9 n once after shower automatically goes to on the aircon in her rm.. we allowed her it's OK cos baby slps w her..always accuses My hubby that he talks to him n play w him until My baby doesn't wanna Zzz at night.. difficult to fall aslp..
Also when he's on breast milk.. he poos frequently n when we bring him in to change when she's already aslp say about 10-11pm..she gets frustrated n says should mix breast milk n fm if not poo will not b So watery.. what nonsense ! Also she gets frustrated to disturb her Zzz n when she's putting him down at the changing mat she put too hard n hit his hard on the table! 28Days passes n we cant Wait to send her off n take cr of My baby myself! She's fr mysia n about 50+yrs old.. very anti bf.. always cms n say not enough supply baby cry cos not eating enough.. I was depressed cos I felt that I was a bad mummy w not enough milk for My boy..her first day..she already told My hubby y didn't standby fm in case I dont't have milk..ask him go buy immediately.. it was already 8+pm at night..
Hence beware of this CL.. if you all very pro bf.. must insist n not get bullied by them!
