No, I applied when I was in the hospital right after delivered.
Thereafter the card and pin was sent to me, I didn't make a trip to OCBC.
Probably becoz I already have a OCBC savings account? But the card was received 1 week after delivery and the baby bonus of 1k also in already.
It was quite fast surprisingly.

May I know how much u ladies intend to put into the CDA $1-$1 account? Max is 6k.
I have not decided.
Hi,

I got the ATM card and pin when I'm in confinement. I thought the baby bonus will be in after 6 months, this is what my hubby told when he went to open the account. How do i know the baby bonus of $1K is already in the a/c?

My baby also has this kind of sound coz his nose is "stuck" and sometimes I see dry mucous in his nostrils. I use saline water to spray, then the polyclinic doctor prescribed nose drop so I'm using nose drops now.

My boy poo pop used to be yellow and curdy like but frm this week on, he is week 5, the poo is yellow and smooth, not curdy anymore.
Is it because now he can absorb better and digest better? I dont think is my diet because I didn't really change much food.

Hi mummies, do u change diaper first or feed first?
If I change diaper first, he will be very angry and impatient coz too hungry. But if I feed first, he will spit milk.
Even after I burp he will still spit. Sometimes like merlion.

Every feed every diaper change is a struggle and a war. I hv to change diaper then he spit I got to change his clothes, take warm water and wipe him
So much work and I m dead by the end. Then comes time to pump milk, then is another feed again. Is difficult for me to latch direct coz he can't latch well and end up feeding time takes longer

normally, I will feed my baby first, because she may poo poo during feeding. unless she poo poo before feeding.
maybe you can feed your son about 30 ml first, then change his diaper, after that continue feed him.
or try to singing song to him when change diaper. I usual to do that, sometime my girl will stop crying.

hotmilktea, don't make yourself too stress cause you cannot manage well under stress.
to me, I usual to pump every 2 or 3 hours when my confinement lady around. after she left, I pump every 4 to 5 hours. as I going back to work soon, I have adjust my pumping hours. unable pump so many time in office.

believe yourself you could do it, cause we are mother. when you feel stress, tell yourself don't be stress, enjoy every moment with baby. they grow up every fast. after that, you will miss when he was a baby.
jia you.

LOL Like merlion! I can't help but laugh out loud coz that's what happens for my baby sometimes too!

I usually feed first coz like u say he'll be super impatient n cry. Then I hold him for about 15min, walk ard, talk to him, sing to him or if my relative is ard, they r more than happy to hold him for me. After abt 15min, or depends on when the relative pass baby back to me, then I change diaper. He won't spit milk or pee n poo on me then. coz if i change diaper too quickly after feeding, he tends to pee or poo while I change him.

i will feed him then change his diaper. my son can even sleep on soiled diaper unless those very wet poo then he will feel unconfortable. my son will also spill milk when changing so what i do is put his handki at his left shoulder with abit handki on his chest(eg: my son also face left side) so when he spill milk, it will not touch his clothing or neck. sometimes i can only pump twice a day, sometimes is bcuz go out, no time or im lazy. hee... but i make sure i will pump twice if not my breast will feel like bursting! don stress yrself.. im always very busy in the morning. feed him around 6+, changed his diaper, wash the bottles, cook my oat, put his laundry to wash, pump milk, pump half way, he will wake up, sometimes to drink again... then change diaper, continue pumping, eat few mouth of oat, bring down those dried clothing, eat few mouth of oat again, hang his clothing to dry, wash family laundry, quickly eat finish my oat, prepare water to bath him, hang family laundry, fold dried clothing... only till atound 10+ then i will be able to breadth...


hi mummies,
do you let your baby wear pamper on day time?

That is so familiar to me... feels good to know im not alone in this struggle and war... for me i will change diaper first cos he can drink his milk comfortably and after he finish his milk he can directly sleep without me wakinng him up by changing diaper...
my 2 month boy makes me real angry when after he pukes, i wiped him clean and changed clothes already... then he pukes all over again... have scolded him 2 times already cos im so tired and he make me do extra work.... yesterday was so tired that i used tissue paper to seperate his clothes and skin cos i too tired to change his clothes....
i also have problems with breastfeeding... he does not like my nipple already... have to coax him a few times before he will suck.... and i already do not have much milk... both sides add up the most is 100ml both sides add together in the morning... if i pump again anytime in the day... the most is 50ml.... quite sad that my milk is drying up soon... but i hope to latch him as much as possible these few days and see if i can revive my milk....
jiayou to all mummies...

Jia you, Mindyling! Hope ur breast milk supply will increase. Pumping is not an accurate gauge of how much milk u r feeding baby. Ur baby may actually be getting more than the amount u pump out coz babies r more effective at extracting milk than pumps. Dun be discouraged! How u think affect ur milk supply too.

Is he having nipple confusion? Are u giving him bottle or pacifier?

Aiyoh dun scold him... being this small, he doesn't really know why he vomit milk also. It must be uncomfortable for him too.
