    Hi,



    We are expecting our first child in mid April 2011. We are wondering if you could recommend a good confinement lady you have used in the past?



    Thanks so much!

    Hi 

    I'm doing my confinement now. This is my 2nd confinement but this aunty is much better than my 1st confinement aunty and i would like to recommend her. In fact she is recommended to me by my good friend.  She is knowledgeable, patient, easy going, can cook well, can be trusted, hardworking and help me with lots of household chores during her free time when baby is asleep. Thumbs up!



    She is aunty Yun and her contact no is (sin HP) 8130 8583 or Malaysia HP 016-609 8059. She is always fully booked so act fast if u keen to engage her. Just mention it's recommended by Yee stay near buangkok mrt there. Can pm me if u need more info. (btw, I'm not getting any commission or any benefits for recommending her).



    Good luck!

    beware of aunt SHU HUA from TANJUNG PINANG Indonesia. Infront of you, she seemslike a hardworking, good personality, etc etc...



    Initially i was very happy with her working attitude but i did not know all these are only fake attitude!

    i even tried to post good comments on forum for her & tried to help her to get new customer.



    Who knows at my back she bad mouthing me. At my back she said:



    1) HER PREVIOUS EMPLOYER ALWAYS BUY HER BREAKFAST EVERYMORNING & MY HUSBAND DID NOT BUY HER ANY BREAKFAST.

    I thought we paid confinement lady to serve us & not the other way round.



    2) SHE CLAIM SHE REJECTED MY REQUEST FOR HER TO EXTEND ANOTHER 2 WEEKS.

    she told my maid she rejected my request to extend another 2 more weeks. By the way, i have NEVER ask her to extend. My mum ask me to extend her for another 2 weeks, I told my mum dont need to. The the CL ask me whether I want to extend her for another 2 weeks, i told her no, thanks. But what she said at my bback is different.



    3) SHE EXPECTED 2 ANG PAOS (1 when she arrived & the other one when she depart). I only gave her 1 ang pao when she left which i thought is the standard practice. I gave her S$100. i check with my friends, all only give $20, but i gave her $100. Yet she still complain at my back & expecting 2 ang paos.



    4) SALARY

    She was complaining about her pay at my side was very low & below the market. AT the first place, she was the one who offer to work for me & ask that amount of pay. Really ridiculous that she licked back her own saliva.



    BEWARE! INNOCENT LOOK & HARDWORKING ATTITUDE DOES NOT MEAN SHE WILL NOT BAD MOUTH YOU AT YOUR BACK!!!!

    Would like to caution all MTBs out there NOT to hire this nightmare CL from M'sia. Sacked her after 2 weeks because really cannot tolerate her behaviour anymore.



    Her name is Lan Ee, Sg no: 82854384 Msia no: 6016-9188648. She has a very big mole on her face and is plump with short dyed hair.







    She was recommended highly to me and when we interviewed her during my pregnancy, she was friendly,supports breastfeeding and appears kind and capable.







    Once arrived at our home within 3 days, here are the things she did







    - badly overfeed my baby with FM until my PD told us to reduce her feeds



    -unhygienc. I found my red dates oily and also found the dishwashing wire sponge's metal pieces in my food. I also got food posioning and had to see GP because of her unhygenic food.



    - always watching tv when baby's sleeping. Initially, I was alright with it provided she did her chores but she didn't



    - didn't change baby's nappies on time, resulting in bad nanny rashes. When questioned her about it, replied very rudely and refused to put on new diaper for baby. Then baby pooed all over the bed and even the poo flew on the floor.



    - wasted our expensive herbs by using it in unnecessary large qty. Asked us to buy so much herbs until $500 and for her to waste!!!







    The list can go on ...I was also put off by her bad attitude towards my parents in laws especially my mother in law. She also tried to create dispute by telling made up stories about my mother in law to me and when speaking to my mother in law. she made up stories about me.We only realised after we sacked her. Luckily, our relationship was not damaged by her tales.







    Please don't hire this horrible CL and live to regret it like me. Hope this will help MTBs out there!

    Hi, I am in the midst of my confinement. This is my first confinement and I am glad I have got a good and experienced confinement lady to help me during this period.



    She is an Indonesian Chinese who is on long term social pass. She charges $1900 and requires a $200 as deposit. When I first met with her in October before my delivery, she told me a list of things to buy. I appreciate it as I am able to prepare the things before the arrival of my baby, including fresh herbs from a Medical Shop at Rocher Road at a good price.



    During the confinement, I find her hygienic when handling the baby. She helps me with breastfeeding the baby by suggesting certain comfortable suggestions and also advises on storage of excess milk.



    She is prompt in washing the laundry for me, my hubby and baby. She is on time in terms of cooking for me, refilling tea for me and boiling water for me to bath.



    She is friendly and takes instructions well. If you like, you may reach her Auntie Poh at 93532097

    Please be aware of Aunty Lian if she's recommending her jie mei CL for you.



    She charged me $2.2k and asked for $300 deposit.

    I thought the deposit is for her jie mei, only to find out later that the deposit was her drink coffee money and the rest $1.9k goes to the CL.

    Be careful of this CL (Aunty Bi Ai) - in her 61 got more than 10 years experiences.



    She wants me to pay for her cabfare when she took a cab from malaysia checkpoint all the way to my house (sg) since we are not driving. After hearing this, I didnt hire her as my CL. Its such a ridiculous demand..just be careful of her.

    Hi,



    my confinement is going to finish soon on Next tues... This is my 1st pregnancy and learnt a few lessons in engaging confinement lady.. jus to share them.



    <i>



    For me, I feel before engaging the confinement lady or any agency, do call or talk to the lady. You must be comfortable wif her as you are the one facing her 24hrs. It will be better that you can interview her face to face. Also dun rely too much on recommendation. Differ ppl differ expecation. ( that happen to mi. My 1st is a recommendation fr fren, but i m nt comfortable wif her)



    Do communicate your expectation to her the very 1st day she come to your house. e.g SHe has to mop the floor by what time, What you like to eat, etc. And most importantly, CANNOT SLEEP at night when baby is crying... My second confinement lady SLEEP and snore like a pig when baby is crying. I call her and wake her up, she said that she is tired and refuse to wake up. Her name is called Ying Jie. And when changing diaper, she did it on the floor. And baby cried until super loud. When I stopped her, she said it is no big deal, baby always cry. ( I have uploaded her pic.. EVERYONE BEWARE OF HER. She keep sleeping. In the morning, ask her to wake up and leave. She said she dint sleep before she came, want to sleep more.. )



    Do not treat them as your friend by confiding to them to much of your family stuff.. They will take you for granted. Rem you are the empolyer. You are the boss. But of course, cant treat her as slave also.



    If you want to do breastfeeding, do your own research.. Cos i find that all the confinement ladies do not have much knowledge on breastfeeding. E.g. the 1st one tell mi, I dun have enf breastmilk, MUST give formula. Or else baby doesnt grow. The 2nd one tell mi, I must do bottle feed of the breastmilk. Cant latch on. Baby will not be full. The 3rd one tell mi after latching no nilk liao, no nid to pump any more...

    oophs.. Just would like to thanks May chua from I-kare also. At first there is some miscommunciation on the buying groceries on cny eve. But in the midst of the confinemnt when I want to change the confinemnt ladies, she has no query abt it. She just change for me.



    I have changed a total of 3 confinemnt ladies. And I am so happy with the 3rd wan.



    to all MTB, if you want to change, please ask her to change an exclusive one. ( one that is under her. ) not freelance one. the 2nd one is freelance, and her working attutude suck to the max.,.

    Hi YJ,

    I have contacted May for my upcoming confinement and she wanted to book Amy for me. Now that I saw that you had Amy replaced, can you share with me more details as to why u replaced her? I am rather concern with the breastfeeding part as I told May specifically that I need someone supportive of bf.



    thanks so much

    Probably your problem is not communicating well with the confinement lady. Amy was looking after my #1 & we had no problems with her as we communicated everything to her before she started work. And now she'll be looking after my #2 as well.



    Sometimes the problem doesn't lie with the nanny but the one engaging her. Communication is very important. I recommended Amy to many of my friends & they are all VERY satisfied with her.

    catmon New Member

    Linda

    All nannies will tell you that you don't have enough milk. But be very firm. I was firm with Amy that I wanted to bf & she was fine with it. Even stayed up with me in the middle of the night while I bf (my #1 wakes up every 2 hours).

  31. apple_koi

    apple_koi New Member

    HI DevLina, I believe you r right. Thats y in the 1st place I said that difer ppl have differ expectation... I jus cant click wif her.. She is a recommnendation from my friend too. My friend love her.. But i jus cant click..



    So i sugguest to MTB, why dun talk to the confinement ladies before engaging them. Cos we are not facing wif MAy but with the confinement lady.



    Maybe cos I am 1st time doing confinement and doesnt know what to expect. And I always have the idea that confinement lady will know everything. But I am wrong.



    On the 1st day, she sleep at nite. But I understand cos she is tired, Traveleing fr Maylasia to SIngpaore. 2nd day she keep naggin that I dont have enf breastmilk and must do formula... in the middle of the night. i simply cant take it. So I ask her to go n sleep while I breastfeed.



    at first we communicate as friends. But I think this is not a good move. Cos after that she treat me like friend and not boss.. which is not desire. So after that the words that I communicate to her is "instructive"



    And of course it doesnt end well.



    So the lesson that i learnt, is to communicate the 1st place. BUt of course to all MTB, KNOW WHAT YOU WANT!!! Dun ask them.. They dont have much knowledge. But I believe they have certain experience.



    when my baby is not latching on, Amy help mi by pressing on my nipple!!!!!!!!!!!! Damn painful lo... And when I have enorgement, she kip pressing down on th breast. And I have to ask her to stop touching me!!!.. [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/sad.gif] And when my baby sleep while latching on, she keep tapping on his face so hard...



    And of course, my friend that intro me doesnt have such prob, cos she has all the info abt bf..



    Another thing, there is one day she keep talking over the phone and when bring the phone everwhere to go... Then I ask May what happen, she said May dun have the mood to work cos she has some family problem. So my hubby was thinking since the person has family prob and cant probably concentrate on working, why must come out?



    Of course this is my personal feedback only. For me, I really like the 3rd confinemnt lady, Ying chun. SHe really can handle my picky mum and mingle with my family. And I think i learnt my lesson then, to communicate with what I want, when she came on the 1st day!!! But I believe there are ppl that are not happy with her also.. =)

    Hi,

    I am into my 14th day of confinement. I am very happy with my current CL. She is from Malaysia (JB). She has been really helpful and that has allowed me to rest well and recuperate from my c-section.



    She is very experienced in handling babies. She is also a fast worker. She cooks very well too and is proficient in knowing what I can eat and cannot eat due to c-section. She cooks and does laundry for my hubby too. Whenever she is free and baby is sleeping, she will help me to clean my kitchen, mop my house and even wash & scrub my toilets! Whenever there are guests in the house, she will bring them drinks without me asking her. When my Mom or MIL comes by, she will offer to cook extra rice for dinner for them. I mean, what else can I ask for...



    If anyone of you is interested to engage her, you may want to talk to her since she is still in Singapore. She has another 14 days at my place.



    Just sharing because I feel that it is very important to have a good helper during confinement period.

    My confinement lady is also quite good. She is called Xin Hua. She has

    20 years' experience. She can cook a variety of confinement food

    (including soups and tonics), can take care of baby and do simple

    housechores for you if you don't have a maid. She is very

    pro-breastfeeding and can do breast massage too. I had quite a hard

    time breastfeeding my first kid and she is really a great help.

    Hi All,



    I'm a new mum in this forum with a pair of 26 days old identical twin boys and I would like to share my experience and recommend my current CL, Meiling and I-kare agency.



    Before contacting I-kare, I too, am looking around for CLs and have no clue whom to get.. thro this forum, I learnt bout i-kare and I contacted May.

    After talking to May, I found out that unlike other agencies, i-kare has their own exclusive nannies and May will assign a nanny whom is suitable for your needs.



    Meiling, currently with me, is really good and works fast. And I would say she’s a god-sent helper for me.. She helps with the chores, does the laundry and prepares food, not just for me, also for my family members.. And furthermore, she takes very good care of my twins and is very careful with the boys.. **which allows me to have full rest during this period**..



    I am not too sure if my experience is useful to you, but from what I have been thro, I feel its best for you to talk to the agencies before deciding what is best for you and for you infant. Getting right help is something that is really important esp when you are in confinement.

    Hi all, i am in my fourth week of confinement.I am very pleased with my confinement lady thus recommending to all mothers to be[IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif] My CL Auntie Mary was recommended to me by my mother in law, She cooks well and knows exactly what tonic to drink & food to eat at different phase of my confinement.

    She prepare food for my hubby and me and even my sister-in-law. As my hubby wants to spent time with our darling before going to work. She is most willing to help buy grocery, on her own.

    Other than the above, she do massage as well. I actually booked a massage lady before giving birth but was overwhelmed by everything that i forgot to inform the massage lady, in the end have to wait for a week. As i knew that she can do massage, i asked her to massage for me(her rate is $50), the outcome is amazing! Can see my tummy go down[IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif] But only get her to massage me for 2 days then my massage lady took over.

    She really took good care of me and my baby well-being.

    Do contact her for more information[IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]

    Hi



    I have a good & experienced confinement lady to recommend. She is very clean, confident in handling baby and pro-breast feeding. I'm not one who follows traditional confinement rules and appreciate that she respects that. She does not force me to abide in any of the rules that i don't believe in. In order words, she is quite a modern CL. [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]



    YOu can contact her, at +60-16 922 9978 (MSIA HP), 8169 2824 (SPORE HP: Only available when she is working in spore).



    FYI: She's booked till end this year. She speaks in Mandarin. Please do not SMS but give her a call instead.

    I totally agree with YJ post above in regards to her CL experiences from her confinement agency.



    I too didnt have good experience with 1st 2 CL and was eventually given a good one by another reputable agency, (claim to have the biggest market share in singapore CL market)



    I believe i'd conveyed across to the sales consultant on my needs/wants and asked 2b given a good CL with experience & knowledge for my 1st pregnancy. The first was the worst... I dont think CL are rude or what but I can say they are rather insensitive to mummy's feelings.



    I was trying so hard to BF my BB and due to being 1st time mum tired after delivery, struggling to establish milk flow.... however all the while still staying very positive and determined UNTIL.... this clever CL commented non stop that my milk supply is low... bb hungry that's why crying.... this is the first time she see a bb cry so much... and she couldnt understand why my bb regurgitate so much too!!!!!



    Her comments worries me so much till i'm constantly in close contact with my bb PD getting reassurance that my bb is fine, which the PD said it's normal.... i told this CL that but she still made the same remarks, totally forgetten abt what my PD said...



    I was actually in fine mood till I met this CL and stress me up big time.... and she didnt like it when my mum in law bought food over & briefly instructed her what to cook for me..... she could at times spent 2 whole hrs in the kitchen preparing meals when I had a maid to help out!!??? i already told her to ask my maid to prepare food 1st and I guess she refused wanting to cook everything by herself.... or maybe avoid taking care of bb.... imagine her time spent preparing lunch and dinner.... i thought why pay to bear with all this during my precious confinement period? CL are supposed to relieve our burden right...



    The last straw came when she used the rolled up tissue paper to clean my small bb nose and could have been too rough with her action causing my bb to scream.... my hubby blew up big time and asked her to leave immediately...



    The 2nd one came and started complaining hand injured before and couldnt work well....???? than why accept this job in first place?? she too told me my milk supply not enough and couldnt understand why my bb cry so much.... she claimed this is the first time she hear a bb cry so much..... well.... she must be thinking she is lucky enough to always get jobs that are relaxing and have bb sleeping thru all the time, no need her to carry.... we started to accept reality that this is the quality of CL services...



    The 3rd one actually set the benchmark and we realised what we had been missing .... she was good!!! or maybe there are better one out there but she was excellent compared 2 the 1st two....i did not think i'd treated her any differently but she was the kind of CL that put mummies mind at ease....



    very proactive, took initiative, really knew her work well and taught me alot, respected me having problem with BF and taught me to supplement a little with FM after BF, in case bb didnt get enough... she put it in a very normal way which i think most ppl could accept... unlike the 1st two CL comments which made me feel lousy & insulted....



    i must say her cooking is fantastic and she's fast in her cooking preparation at most staying an hour in kitchen... i allowed them to ask my maid to prepare food first before CL actually cooked them.... I think i'm being reasonable here....



    she had no complains waking up feeding my bb... very diligent and pleasant CL....



    well...I'm surprised she's not in one of the testimonial shown on the agency website and instead i was super surprise when i saw a testimonial by a customer engaging my "2nd" CL services ..... the one I rejected... ???



    therefore not all nanny from an agency are good.... we just have to try our best to highlight our needs and hoping that agency wtill sent a good one over.... just like employing a maid.... cant guarantee good... or maybe i should put it that everyone expectation are different... it might suit me but not to another....



    wishing all mummies here enjoy their confinement period to the fullest and take care!!!



    above are just some personal sharings of my CL experiences...

    Hi all,



    Would like to check if any mummies here needed to apply for a working permit (?) or some sort of pass for their confinement lady?

    I just called up one, and she said that as she would be away for 2 months for her previous job, if she were to take up mine after dat, i would need to apply for the pass or permit which costs $100+. Is this true?



    First-time engaging a CL, so really not sure how things work. Greatly appreciate any help!



    Thanks!
