andrea,
yes. after feeding bb mood is more settled. but I normally will toss her around when practicing. then she will throw up a bit. :p feel sorry for her.

the hair accessories. it's handmade by local mum.
too bad already got from princessbowbow.

re: update of vitaglo spree #1
the CSO will check the order and get back to me. STILL HAVEN"T SHIP YET!!!


re: sling
bx,
i still use 1 hand to support bb's neck/head. she's quite well supported this way. as long as you make sure there's enough cloth between you and bb, should be safe.

thank you jaslyn and cheryl for advice on gripe water.. will go get it tom.

re diapers sale.. today's ntuc got cut out coupon to buy huggies.. 3 jumbo pack for $45.85, think it's quite cheap.. and huggies M size I think is smaller than pampers.. i think huggies M size for 5 to 10kg. I personally used mainly pampers easy dry and mamy poko,but my frends said huggies is quite good too.

when you sling your bb in that way, do you need to support the head? i dare not sling my boy in that position yet 'cos his neck not strong yet. and mil said not good for the spine if carry upright at this age.

re: gathering
i will miss the chance to meet up again 'cos hb not around on saturday, mayb monday still got chance.....

re: car seat
anyone going to buy car seat? if you got ABN amro credit card, can get safety 1st car seat from kidzloft @ $99. original price is about $200. i m going to get one for my boy. hehe...
 

kitsune_sg

Active Member
sunny, I need to get car seat, how does the safety first one look like? Is it convertible type?

jac, I used Pigeon wet wipes, expensive but one hand operation is important to me cos bb always struggles. Think it's cheaper if you order direct, someone organised a spree before. I can't remember who though I joined in. Oops. :p

there's nothing really die die must buy lah...for me i found the dried longans in CM cheap n good quality. that time bt alot for confinement :p I never go n check robinsons got nursing rm or not cos last time not preggy leh! in fact bn to cm 5,6 times oso never notice ..

kitsune
ok can pass u at kelly's.

diapers
i think on average no-poo days, my bb use about 6. on days she decide poo-ing is fun maybe 8. One pampers diaper can last her from 7 to 7 cos we dun wanne wake her to change.

btw, found petpet good and cheap. hb doesn't like the sticky fastener, prefers the pampers velcro type but other than that, no complaints lor.

wipes
now i'm using ntuc brand wipes...ok lah, quite thin and small but still alright. tried tollyjoy n pigeon before. tollyjoy at the end always very wet and hard to pull. wanna try carrefour next.

diaper usage,
i use pampers for night and nepia in the day. pampers can last 12 hours through the night. for the day, we change every 3hrs or so. average usage is 5.

wipes,
i use pigeon cos it's easy to pull out, and wetness is just nice. wanted to try tollyjoy cos cheaper but didn't in the end cos i'm a sucker for supposed "technological advantages" (pigeon wipes are micro blah blah blah tested to minimize bacterial growth or something)

used to whack 3 packs of wipes per week during the early days when bb pooed a gazillion times a day. nowadays, one pack lasts me 2-3 weeks

talking about hair clips, my gal has been dropping A LOT of hair. very scary. she used to have a full head of hair, now can see big balding patches. is this normal? or maybe due to the shampoo i use?
 

babyxan

Active Member
garfield,
it''s normal. my A is almost bald now. she was born with lots of hair too. if u dun like the patches, u can consider shaving her at 4th month.
 

babyxan

Active Member
i dun intend to shave A. just leave it slone. u?

it's a custom to shave either at 1st or 4th month. but i guess it doesn't matter when u do it unless u r superstitious.
 

bkkgal

New Member
wat if shave already dun grow back? my mom keep asking me to shave bb's hair. K also dropping hair like mad - bald patches here and there.
 

bkkgal

last night, wake up 1.30am pump and 4.15 am latch. gonna crash later at the meetings. xiong.

wipes- I use pigeon too cause the wetness is just right, and most importantly its not fragranced. Hmmm not sure why but I use very little wipes? Only when bb poops and thats like several times a week. :p

Which pigeon wipes you all talking. Im using the red packaging one. they have a blue packaging one also right that one is anti bact? red one is it anti bact also or only blue one? i like pigeon one really very easy to pull and not very wet.

Express at work
Want to check with all of you. Boss suggested toilet to express. Hubby disapprove and ask me to stop bf or ebm. Then I think there's a library. Ask person-in-charge of library. Told me no problem. As library sit in another subsidary company, I asked the manager for permission liao. 1st day of work everybody ask where I pump. I told them library. Then GM asked me yesterday who give me the idea and whether I asked permission from the manager. Wah! Give me the impression that I EBM in library is wrong but to do so in toilet is ok...... Like I committed a crime.

HR told me I should not have taken HL but should have taken my ML then unpaid leave.... HL is just for show to MOM loh. Cannot be use lah. Now back to office, feel co not compassionate at all. My CNY "Kai Gong" ang pao also swallow away loh. How to ask..... sigh.... make me want to throw paper...

thankful,
seems like ur company is not very supportive of bf. so now are u allowed to express in the library? if cannot, toilet should be ok coz i know dor oso expressing in toilet.

i found my ss dropped yday. usually when i pump at 10pm, can get 120+ ml but yday only managed 80ml. Total output yday cannot meet my bb's needs today
That's why I had to wake up to pump to make up for shortfall lor..I very scared now if work whole week no rest sure ss will drop like siao. how?? sigh............

Thankful
Why is the GM so ngiao?? Tell him/her that co shud be more pro-family, provide a nursing room! I can see why HR's attitude is like that..cos GM's attitude like that, HR sure follow example wan. Your angpow is your entitlement, whether or not you were on leave or not. You should write in and ask politely like hey did you forget my angpow?

Sorry that you have to put up with such nonsense. Hang in there, it's Friday already. Look forward to the weekend and spending every minute with your little one ok? *Hugs*

stella has bald patches on her head too. 2 make matters worse, my girl sweats a lot so she is getting heat rashes on her scalp. so i've decided 2 shave her head off 2day.

i'll post b4 & after pics later 2nite.
 
morning ladies!

Diapers,
Im using pampers baby dry, seems ok. just bought pet and pet and will try it out.

Pigeon Wipes
I have only come across the one in red packaging...is there another packaging/type?

Shaving BB's hair
I also half hearted leh..my bb dun have much hair in the first place, dunno whether to shave so that "he'll have lots of hair in future" (as according to the elders) or to leave it alone.

Express in toilet
My co toilet always wet and smell of urine... *Stink* There's sunshine inside even though have ventilation fan but whole toilet very hot. I will be hot and sweaty inside. By the time I finish, think I will faint inside. Moreover very scared of "samola" virus that hit Prima Deli bakery. Cos this virus are from our "Da Pian"

Ang Pao
How to ask? Ask GM or MD or HR? Or I asked my supervisor? Supervisor, GM and MD are very good terms always have lunch in office 1. Sigh... Wait they think I very "Ji Jiao". But they "Ji Jiao" with me in the 1st place. I was asked to come back work by my MD and begining she told me I can express my BM in office (I was still EBM my no.1 that time). Now can change and said co not big like other big co where they can have bf room. I don't want to give up bf cos my no.1 cannot latch on so no.1 only EBM. Now I enjoy latch on with V. Can't bear to stop. But seemed like co is against me. Sigh.... What am I suppose to do? *Sob*

Thankful,
*Hugs* sayang sayang. Oh dear poor you. Hang in there. Let's try to think of some possible solutions together with you ok? Jia you!!

Where is your office? Are there other offices or buildings that you may use? Any possibility of nursing rooms in other offices?

Can you adjust your pumping schedule to once a day during lunch and walk out to somewhere more conducive?

Are there other female managers with rooms who may be sympathetic and allow you to use their room from time to time?

Just surfacing some ideas to explore.
