Hi Garfield,

I have received your payment.


RE: LeapFrog LittleTouch™ LeapPad® Learning System

I thought it is a good price. Bought 3 at 1 go. :p My colleague's wife giving birth in June, then my sister-in-law in September and of course 1 more for Danica.

RE: diapers

I not sure if it's I don't know how to fasten or what. But when Danica poops a lot, almost all (Nepia, GOO.N, Drypers, Pampers Baby Dry, Pampers Active Baby, Mamy Poko) leaks. :p Or maybe it's just the Danica got a lot of poop? The leaks are mostly at the sides. Only Nepia and Drypers leak from the top of the back side.

RE: going back to work

I am only starting work on 26 May. Now trying hard to accumulate EBM for Danica. Only have 6 containers full (160 ml) <sigh> Not sure if I can accumulate enough a not. I only pump 3 times a day now.

RE: weight

I still have 7kg to lose. <sigh> Hope I can lose it within the next few weeks or else I will have to waste money on larger size office wear. I also have flabby skin on my belly.


RE: BD

I started liao leh... But the first few times a bit painful and started to bleed slightly so I stopped for a while before starting again.

artemis,
wow...danica do poo a lot ! hehe... so far only mamy poko pass my son's poo test coz it nvr leaks during my son's massive poo (those after 7 days no poo one) but then in the middle we change his diapers coz the diaper cannot hold anymore so must catch at the right time...

iso,
yeah...actually the baby even slept during the 3 hours period...haha...so i think my hb also no choice coz if he puts him down or transfer to me my baby sure will cry one... :p

piggletail,
for the bb bjorn you may want to catch the bp offer one that nicetots's holding...much cheaper than buying at isetan...

re:weight,

RE: LeapFrog LittleTouch™ LeapPad® Learning System

hi mummies who ordered the above, pls note that u will need to buy the "books" separately.. the system only includes a LittleTouch™ LeapPad starter book..
Each "book" actually consist of a interactive book and a cartridge.. and u must buy the books that is compatible with the system..
in this instance, u must buy the <font color="ff0000">LittleTouch™</font> LeapPad® Book to use on the <font color="ff0000">LittleTouch™</font> LeapPad® Learning System..
The books can be pretty exp.. so u may grab some if u see any offer on it..

bx, you also very slim what. I prefer to put on some more weight lor, people actually said I look better with more flesh when I was preggie but bo bian, TBF and not taking extra 500 calories everyday.

Sigh, anyway, asked Ms Betty Lee, LC to help me clear my blockage, and see why my BB can't sleep. She helped me clear the blockage using BB in football hold to suck but she can't help my BB to sleep. She's said my BB is too alert and wants to play. She asked how many hours my BB sleep in the day, checked with MIL, about 5hrs in the day. So, she said 4 hrs better. She also asked if we had problem putting BB to sleep previously, then I realised BB has been sleeping at 11-12 when I was still on maternity. Cos no. 1, MIL comes over to do night duty at 11+pm so we don't bother to put her to bed earlier, and reason no. 2, I always feed/pump 1 last time before I sleep which is close to midnight. No wonder, she can't sleep at 9+, 10pm cos she sleeps quite a bit in the day, and she's never had such an early bedtime in the first place. Sigh. :p

bx,
Can drink carbonated drinks but limited to one dose per day. Included tea or any drink with caffine. Was told caffine can pass down to our BM. So can't drink too much. Don't feed bb straight away after drinking cos gas will transmit to BM. My friend told me so cos bb kept crying after she drank carbonated drink.

pinkie,
it's "normal", my bb also like that. on similac, longest he went was 7 days, that's why i thought of switching to nan and have been alternating between the 2 brands (cos MIL say no good to just suddenly switch). now he seems to poo every 3 days, which i feel is better.

but dunno whether it's has anything to do with the brand of milk, or it's just a phase but bb has been very fussy these last few weeks since i introduced nan. so fussy and no improvements in night feeding. still giving both now, haven't really decided if i should rely on either one...

Bx..agree with Garfield. The amount is not linear as the longer u put off, the less your breast will produce during those hours. And some more not good for milk supply. Now me still pump/feed 7 times a day.

But I read that the interval does'nt matter, it is how many times you pump/feed which matters. Is this true?

sweetpea,
wow u still can pump/feed so many times although u have started work.

i agree it's the number of times u pump/feed. natuarally as u pump/feed more times, the shorter will be the intervals. so it's directly proportional.

so r u still able to maintain ss after u start work?

thankful,
after hearing ur friend's case makes me scared to drink carbonated drinks liao...

Piglettail,
I also got the Baby Bjorn carrier,and I got the original one cos i bought it when bb was smaller hence i feel more confident with the original one with loads of padding compared to the air one. The ones with back support is good but i didn't take it cos' i felt that it was too warm for me esp if i were to walk ard in the park.

I actually brought my bb down to mothercare to try all the designs and i must say, they are patient abt it. So, mayb if possible, bring ur bb down and try till ur hearts content. Furthermore, if u have bought it and change your mind abt the design, colour etc, u cld jus bring it back for exchange. If u need, i have the mothercare card but i thk mayb only 10% off...not much ya?

morning ladies,
I was wondering if anyone can advise me on what is the best way to transport frozen EBM home as I have decided to take from one of the generous forum mummy who has excess. Think it would be gd to feed my son that since i can't. thks!!!

leila,
do you have a cooler ? if you have then would be good to carry using a cooler with ice packs inside...

dor,
not sure if pooh loves u good or not...haven't even try it ! haha...i'm actually interested in few other books like animal world and dora but thought i'll see if my son likes to play with the system or not...

sgwave,

yes, put everything in the bag to sterilise. But the tubing has to sterilise separately. I only sterilise the tubing once a day. My colleague told me she only sterilise the tubing once a month..i dare not lei..

cheryl,

i learnt from the nurse the last time that even though the fever has gone down but i had to feed my boi wid the med for 1 more day as she says the fever might jus come back. So, that was what i did and the fever left aftr 1 day of additional dosage...u wanna try?
