    Hi Celtricia,
    wat a coincidence! Yup... first one also delivered by KC Yeo. He's really good [​IMG] His staff also ultra-friendly [​IMG] When's your next visit? For all you know, we may have bumped into each other at one of our visits!

    This second pregnancy is not as stable as the first one... and I've been to see him quite frequently. But now, much better. My next visit is on 20th... will be gg for scan too [​IMG]

    Hey Littletots!
    Just realised you are Bubble also [​IMG] will check out your board regularly [​IMG]

    Hi Zyp,
    Which block are you at? So you take your ds for regular walks? [​IMG] We try to bring our boy to the playground ... he usually has a go on the slides after school b4 heading home [​IMG] Getting more difficult to pry him away from those slides...

    Hope to hear from you all soon!

    Hi Andrea,
    I'm at 358...
    So far it's my Hubby who's bringing BB out for evening walks cos I tend to work later... :p

    Since we all stay around the same area, is there any good PD here? My son is down is cough and cold now...
  11. nnchander

    nnchander Member

    Hi Zyp,
    I used to bring bb to a paed in Jurong Point. She's good with children, but I think because she's a paed, some of the medicine dosage she prescribes is too low... my boy took a long time to recover. After a while it didn't seem all too encouraging...

    Now we bring him to a GP in Clementi (Jurong Dispensary). His medicine is very good for my boy.

    But yesterday, since that GP's clinic is not open on Sunday, we took him to one in Bt Batok East Ave 4. Good also. Both my husband and I go to her... and she's very patient and nice -- BUT the wait is L O N G !!!

    Anyway, your bb is still quite young. Don't go to GP yet. I hear that there is a good paed at CCK -- in the building where the old Popular Bookstore is. I'll try to find out more info for you...
  12. zypto

    zypto Active Member

    We already brought him to the lady GP at blk 359... She's quite friendly but I think the medication she prescribed doesn't seem right cos it made my boy's cough worse...
    My son's not getting better, vomitted last night... I've stopped giving him the medication, hope his cough will recover by itself.

    I heard abt the PD in JP also... but also heard some bad comments abt her... Hope to hear from you abt CCK PD soon!

    zypto Active Member

    I also had a Lamp Berger... a gift. The essence not cheap right? I stopped using after I finished the essence... remember mine was eucalyptus (spelling wrong? :p).

    We've not brought Zavier to westmall yet... Hee... most of the time is HB and I go there rush here and there buy things and run errands then rush back. Haha... maybe next time we bring Zavier there and pay Ryan and you a visit. =)

    Hi Serene,
    Yah, still taking medication cos I believe it'll help reducing his phelgm...

    Thanks Andrea! I've considered Kidslink too... In the amist of deciding which PD to go, friend recommended a PD at Crown Centre and we went there. Not bad...
  26. nnchander

    nnchander Member

    hi Zyp,
    heard that the Lampe Berger is good... been meaning to get one, but quite ex, although hubby has membership card with them.

    Btw, is your son still phlegmy? My boy had a cough problem for the longest time. He even developed bronchiolitis one time and had to be hospitalised. He also needed to be nebulised frequently. We had no choice then but to invest in a nebuliser for him.

    But once he passed 18 months, his condition improved. Also, my colleague advised me to reduce the formula milk strength for him. Since then, it has worked wonders!
  27. zypto

    zypto Active Member

    How come your hubby has membership without needing to purchase one?
    Are you really interested in getting the lamp? Mine, used less than 5x, is lying somewhere in the store. You want? Sell you cheap cheap... [​IMG]

    Yah my boy still quite phlegmy... but slowly getting better now.

    What does reducing formula strength mean? MAking it more dilute?
  28. nnchander

    nnchander Member

    Oh, we bought a Lampe Berger for his grandma one year at Tangs... then got the membership... but haven't really gotten down to getting one for ourselves. How much you intending to sell yours for? ;)

    And you are right... reducing the strength means diluting it. He is drinking 240ml now... and that usually equates to 4 scoops... but now I put only abt 3 scoops for 240ml of water...
  29. forgetmenot

    forgetmenot Active Member

    sure no prob..

    Re:lampe berger
    is true tt the oil not cheap leh..my sil has it.her colleague told her tt those purifier tt runs on water one,is more effective..

    since i hve the purifier..i just need to buy the oil to try out..
  30. nnchander

    nnchander Member

    Hi forgetmenot,
    which purifier did you buy? or do you mean a humidifier? coz i bought two oils for my humidifier, but i've since thrown it away... can pass you the oils if you have a humidifier...

    zypto Active Member

    Actually wanted to throw it away liao cos don't know who to give to. Willing to sell away at $20 if anybody wants and, and provided I can find it. Let me check out my store-room this weekend and take pic to show u... :p

    Hihi Janz! So which part of Batok do u stay?
  34. nnchander

    nnchander Member

    Hi Zyp,
    That's great... really appreciate it. Let me know when you find the lampe berger [​IMG]

    Hi forgetmenot,
    actually my humidifier wasn't spoilt. It still works, but it was extremely difficult to clean -- there was a lot of scum. Also after awhile, it was impossible to remove one of the coverings... so we had to throw it away...

    Your boy is so happy in the pic [​IMG] Mine was grouchy when he was young... took him a long time to learn how to smile! And sigh.... I donch know how to add pic lah...

    Hi Littletots,
    sorry missed out on your message! I haven't met your sis... but when I was shifting to Gombak, her recommendation for an ID was great [​IMG] I got Joseph to come do up our place. Also, your sis did mention that you and your parents are also in the area [​IMG] BTW, which block are you at? And hey, can you give me the link to your sis' online stuff for sale?

    My sis's (littletots) place is also done up by Joseph. We are just directly opposite yr blk - Blk 387. We are occupying the same unit but my sis is just 1 level below mine. She is helping me with the biz, just can't cope alone with a full time job, 2 kiddy + this part time. The link is:

    Hi Bubble!
    I am very blur! And you are right... I think I've seen your children before [​IMG] My boy loves the slides, and I think Wayne must have been on it too one time we were there [​IMG]

    Anyway, which floor are you on? Our friend lives in the same block as you, and we visit his place from time to time... Same unit too [​IMG]

    Hi Zyp and Forgetmenot,
    My boy will turn 2 next month ... time flies! This second bb is due CNY! Next week is my scan, then I'll find out the bb's gender (or mebbe not! hahah...)

    This time, a girl would be nice, but I was thinking another boy would be good too ... coz I've got lots of stuff from my older son, that are still very new!! Will save us lots of money [​IMG] But what's impt is -- that bb is healthy! :D

    Hi zyp,
    Thanks! I think she was prettier with long hair. She prespire too much so no choice but to keep her hair short.


    Hi Andrea,
    Haha..yeah Wayne gets real excited with the slides. We just had a pre-lantern festival cum birthday celebration for Crystal (she is born on 18/9) last sat at the multi purpose hall. The children went crazy at the playground.

    Oh we are on the 19th and 20th flr. You must be real excited to find out the gender. May yr wish come true!

    Anyone partcipated in the baby contest last weekend? Wayne did and won consolation prize [​IMG]. We are going for the lantern party tomorrow. Any one too?
