ow_mummy,
I won't be able to make it to marie's gathering coz I'll be travelling!!

Anyways, I've asked Pei to help in the collection. Pei will help rose & you to collect and pass to u all during the gathering. Is it ok?

Yvonne you bought the sleep and weave sleep rompers right?? Ya that size runs VERY small. The rest are quite ok.. Jovan wears the 6-9mths.. and it doesn't look like it can last long too. Try the 2 pack cotton one. That size runs bigger! If the sleeves are too long, we can still fold it back.

Rose, hee I had fun sorting and packing coz I am surrounded by so many pretty stuff! Haha.. It's really a SEA of BLUE and a OCEAN of PINK loh... baby stuff really much cuter than adult clothes.

And the funny thing is, KP mentioned that the sleeveless bodysuit is good and almost EVERYONE ordered that! HAHAHAHA.... so i guess moogey will be seeing lots of COW!

Bonbon, ya the toys are all trial and error one loh.. so when someone recommends a toy that their bb likes... I'll cheong down and get it. Like the Octotunes. Help to entertain bb while I do other things keke. Cool cool Cait princess is good mah.. next time her bf muz try very very hard to please her. So he will do everything at her beck and call! ho ho ho

Pumpkin_seed, what's a tete-a-tete too?? Okie we settle for the massage after the 10th then. Just let me know in advance so I can take LEAVE to join.

Pumpkin, have you added KP in your face book? I think the video is uploaded by KP!! So u can search for it under her profile.

Sigh.. my bb refuses to latch again just now. So sad. Hb told me off say.. u always never manage to latch.. blaming me for not preparing the milk in advance and waking him up and making bb cry.... angry leh.. If not for the bottles.. I think it wouldn't be so bad now. If I have another bb, I think I'll hide away ALL the bottles!!!!

And I had to spend an hrs plus just now getting those stupid engorgement out again. Must be engorged and swollen... that's y bb hates latching!! So stressful.. but I won't give up!!! hee

kidskidz, am so tempted by the boo boo bunnies too... how??

babymummy, tete-a-tete means chit chat, nibble on goodies. Ok Will try to sort out a date between 10th Aug to 1st Sept cos will be going to France in Sept.
Can you PM me KP's real name so I can find her on your FB to add her?
For latching, try this book called The New Breastfeeding, Getting BreastFeeding Right For You. By Mary Renfrew, Chloe Fisher and Suzanne Arms. This book is my saviour when it comes to b-feeding! I suffered so much pain and bleeding for 4 months before I found this book. It's still not 100% enjoyable because Ning is playful and a lazy latcher BUT I am beginning to really enjoy b-feeding. In fact, I might even continue after 6 months. The book teaches how to latch correctly with diagrams, other factors that create a successful b-feeding environment etc. I can't recommend it enough.
Alternatively, I can recommend a good lactation consultant who's been tried and tested by many people I've spoken to.
Really admire your perserverence but really, it does not have to be a chore, it can be really enjoyable!

<font color="aa00aa">Baby mummy:</font> Persevere! When breasts r engorged &amp; bb latches on, flow can b fast &amp; furious or none @ all -- both also can turn bb off &amp; ask 4 bottle again. In my case if hvn't latch my boy for a couple of hours &amp; then do, he may initially choke a bit as milk flows fast...

<font color="ff6000">Pumpkin Seed:</font> Yah lor, bunnies so cute. Best part adults also can use leh


<font color="119911">Cath:</font> Good morning madam! Fri sch's out earlier coz of CCA? Hey, 2day stay cool ok? I know NT nt easy bunch. My fren taught science &amp; he demonstrated centre of gravity by balancing a chair with his finger (mayb more than 1...). In the express class this feat drew gasps and waahhhs.

wow... so many mummies are up so early!

Thanks pumpkin seed!! I thought u are actually an expert leh after seeing how comfortable you are breastfeeding ning. Actually my breast feeding journey had been quite a traumatising one till at one stage I almost wanna chop off my neh neh! HAHA... then things got a little betta with the lactation consultants from TMC.. and The kellymoms website is a life saviour too! But as I am a working mom, I actually doesn't have much chance to latch.. and plus my bb is on schedule.. there isn't much chance for me to even play with my bb let alone latch. So I usually only try it in the wee hrs..or the 7am feed which if the bb reject.. he will cry till the whole family is disturbed.. if not the neighbours too! So I always take a gamble.. if he is on for 5min.. I will be very very happy already!!

Hee.. another notti fact is, bb is the best pump!! I need him to help clear my ducts.. keke

kidzkidz, ya hee so I usually pump before that so the flow is better and friendly to my fussy feeder. However, this am my aerola is swollen leh.. I think that's y he rejects.. Now loading on lansinoh nipple cream..

Kris.. dun dun frd me hor.. last week really cannot make it due to last minute meetings ah.. sorry sorry..


moogey, its a 5 pack sleeveless bodysuit. Comes in 3 colours, neutral, blue or pink.

Aiya think so hard ah.. GET BOTH!!! ho ho

Pumpkin, btw what did u do in Bintan?? Is everything billed in USD?? Good recommendation for food places??

hi

YSL >> have you tried the papaya fish soup, oats and milk??
oats and milk supposedly increase BM... thats what the nurses at TMC advised when i delivered... its worked so far.. also keeps me satiated when i'm hungry in the middle of the nite!!

mummies, i have a qn.. my boy latches on but comes off and the BM is flowing and all.. but he latches and comes off and gets impatient and cries..
is he being strange or colicky or am i doing somthing wrong?.. this usually happens in the evening when i come back from work...
anyone experience this??

buniquestore >> i beeen trying to design stuff for my boy and still not done yet ... but soo many nice things to buy for kids.. i broke lah!!

babymall has nice nice stuff.. too many .. i thot they bedding set for boys look much nicer that the ones here.. already got POOH bear and some animal printstuff.. anyone knows where to get nice bedding sets for boys??

kris, any chance you will attend Mar mummies dim sum this wed? I still need wet wipes from you but can't make it on Fri as SK really far for me.

babymummy, agree that baby is best pump! The LC at TMC are pretty good and Kellymom website too for facts and tips. But this book made a difference for me. Hope it can for you too. I have it with me, you can borrow it if you want.
Bintan, Kelong Restaurant is good! Baan Areya - Thai resto is only so so but very nice view/atmosphere for good price. Otherwise, we cooked a fair bit in the kitchen. Billed in USD and SGD.

YSL and Pravina, do read the book I recommended to babymummy. There are so many answers in there to all your questions. After reading it, I felt like a lightbulb went off in my head. All the time I was telling myself " just bear with it, it's just a painful thing to do" but it's really not! There are solutions!

Kidz, now got chicken pox vaccine what for you want ur bb to grow it?

Dexter diagnosed with chicken pox yesterday. Sigh. He was so close to being in the clear as thurs would be 2 weeks since he was exposed. Now my home quarantine has been extended and my old CL said 100 days cannot eat eggs, chicken and cucumber. Also have to send the new maid to get a jab as she has not gotten chicken pox before.

Mummies, please get the jab if u have not gotten chicken pox as i suspect i caught it when i brought Dexter to the PD for the usual injections. Think clinics are the easiest places to catch an infectious bug.

He was comforted when he saw and heard me and went back to sleep almost immediately.I'm going to miss my little pumpkin so much,haiz.Hope he'll remember me and I will still be able to comfort him in the future months ahead...</font>

powerball >> take care and rest well.. where you live?? i got neem leaves i can give you ... it helps with chiken pox healing ... indians believe in it and usually put some in the room, in their pillow, drink it ( leaves plus hot water like tea) and some even make into paste and put on the pustules..
its actually best to go thru the chicken pox period without meds cos it helps your immune system "remember" the infection so gives you better immunity against shingles which can be fatal..

Dexter appears only ok as the pox not all out yet but he like got a bit of cough. He is now taking the bb version of the meds i took when i came down with the chicken pox.

I checked the book n the jab is when they are 1 years old.

The vaccine is not 100% and is one time but better than nothing. A lot of $ and time spent if mother and child sick. I had to get my old CL back just to help out.

Rin, if i were you, i would take the jab. My husband rushed to take it and cost him $110 as he does his own biz so cannot afford to fall sick. Last time when i was young, i also did not get infected by my sister. But now, hardly go out since my delivery but still can kenna. I can count my fingers the no. of times i went out and where. But suay means suay.
