it works...i bought the tiger food jar...i tried last nite...put grinded brown rice and boiling water...after 2 hours..they were really soft...but i think i put too much water so very watery...i guess i will try again tomorrow with lesser water...

but it really works...i am very amazed....
go and get it...from taka...bought the 0.9L at $75...
its quite compact also..can bring out..

re: porridge, u can try putting pumpkin and carrot in the slow cooker together with your brown rice to cook for 3 hours..very yummy..i stimes put ikan bilis powder...my bb seems to love it..everytime i cook that..he can finish a lot...i guess coz its really soft and smell yummy....

or u can try saute onion &amp; mushroom then put inside your porridge..quite nice also..


New Member
Ikan bilis powder as in the si sen one from supermarkets is it?I Thot cannot intro mushrooms yet?!? Hmmm, shall try that. Thanks edj!! Will go n get the food jar before we travel in march

as for swim diapers, I buy huggies from ntuc/cold storage. Pack of 10 or 12, can't remember but I prefer to use the konfidence bb swim truncks with plastic lining, hehe, save $$!

my boy escapes from the bumbo now.. he detests the table we use to "lock" him in, and has started throwing mini tantrums during meal times.

my boy also started crying really loud at nite and arching his body and trying to sit up. anyone experience that??? i dunno wat to do.


hi pravina,

my boy oso arches his body when crying at nite....tats when he wants milk. once milk teat is in his mouth, he is ok.....

could it be he wants milk? has he been able to sleep for longer hrs at nite?


New Member
sh, yup. I give bellamy oats/rice and happy bellies multigrain... except my boy doesn't like cereal anymore! hahaha

Heard that healthy times has a history of bugs, so used to give their puffs but stopped...


Active Member
<font color="119911">edj,
actuali i onli tested 2 times when i bot it which was 3-4yrs ago, after which it was in the store till recently i went sentosa, my maid cooked the porridge n i brought the porridge for dat day n dats it, keke.

i tink u haf been usin the plain cereal n add in puree rite? i felt u shld try the nestle apple n cranberry, mixed fruits, etc (the gold series) coz the plain cereal is reli very floury but luckily kerryn still loves cereal.

i give heinz n nestle.</font>


Active Member

oh u mean u let your bb tried the porridge cooked using the food jar already ah?
i havent lei..i tried cooking again today using the food jar but put too little water so ended up with more of rice then porridge...all dried up...

gotto try again later untill get the correct water level..i guess its better to put more..excess can throw...


i use swim diapers under his thermal wear..i think pools require the extra protection in case poo.. right??
my boy got swim trucks too but prefer to use the thermal wear.. konfidence brand!


he has been sleeping longer hours cos his papa puts him to bed now...but lately he's been waking up abt 1-2am and i latch him on, drinks till fall asleep and then wakes up again, abt 2hr later.
made FM but refuse to drink.. kept crying and then tried to put him in his cot and he totally went berserk!! until, i latch him on again and he fell asleep, with him holding me tight!!
am wandering if some separation anxiety or just very clingy??
will try feeding him more tonight and see how he behaves...


Active Member

thanks..so what swim diapers u use? i saw huggies swimming dipaers at coldstorage just now..good?or buy those disposable one...i think mummy kian BP have the so called tankini swimwear,,u know what's that? she said it bottom and top..hows the top looks like ah? u gave the link earlier rite? u got sthing from her?


Active Member
My bm supply also dropped drastically. Now only enough for one feed. Luckily, he can still take porridge and cereal.


i use huggies now.. i bought them when he was one mth old and now left one!! i bought the neck float, and waverider from her..need to buy more diapers
tankini .. i think is the tee-shirt looking top..so covers your tummy. so still a 2-pc but more coverage.


my boy oso getting clingy these days. but for him out of sight means out of mind. when i'm not ard, hb says he is actually less cranky. MIL oso says bb alwiz bully their mummies one..

i can't put him to bed w/o nursing him these days. he will simply refuse the pacifier or any kind of coaxing. but when hb does it, pacifier works. it's like he KNOWS i can nurse him. smart boy!

how much ebm do u give Esan these days?


i alwiz let my boy swim with only the swim diaper on. i've seen others wear swim trunk over the disposable swim diaper. i guess either way works so long as bb's poo poo don't enter the pool. ;)



guess he juz wanna smell u....my boy never wans daddy to put him to bed.....even mid nite wakes up oso need me to pat him to sleep.....his eyes are not open but he knows....whine and whine till i take over....even daddy carry and i talk telling him sleep sleep he oso knows i'm not the one carrying him....

any mummies know if i can give quakers brand oats? saw the packing its 100% oats....

jean, my boy oso super clingy to me only! everywhere he bullys me...when daddy drives him to grandma hse, he will keep quiet and wait till the destination (i'm hiding behind the back seat)....but if he knows i'm ard. he'll cry for my attention....

Pravina and Ow_mummy,

Thanks for sending me the catalogue, I will send email to PG cake directly.

Been busy since we come back from Jakarta, my boy is having fever, throat infection and congested nose since Monday. Luckily it was the day we back to singapore, rushed to PD from airport at 9 PM, luckily the PD willing to wait.

On friday, the phlegm had gone to the lung, so he was diagnosed with bronchitis, now having red rashes on his back and chest,very worried hope everything is fine, going to bring him back to PD again tmr for review.

For those going overseas, my advise is to be careful not to let ur baby touch everywhere before we clean it. My mistake I let my baby played around at the restaurant while I was eating and since he's teething he always like to put his finger to his mouth

Edj: Sorry to reply so late. Was very busy at the Natas fair these few days hence no reply. Looks like Pravina has replied you.

Got a very good deal for my Japan trip. Instead of F&amp;E, I decided to settle for a package Hokkaido tour and self extend for a few days in Tokyo which is still good as the tour itinerary included 3 to 4 nights of onsen hotels and had 3 nights of Japanese style room.

Paid $2038 (thanks to DBS discount) + $242 taxes + $100 deviation fees. Infant fares only cost me $130. Flying by ANA.

In addition to the above, we had the following free.

1. 28Inch DBS Luggage and 20 Inch DBS luggage
2. 2 Mastercard Trolley Bag
3. Vivocity shopping voucher
4. Mastercard sling bag
5. $2400 tour voucher to be used for the next trip
6. $150 per person cash discount on top of the above price
7. a little souveneir from Japan Tourisim.

Not bad of a deal i must say. Now I am relieved of all planning duties for Japan.. keke.. Just go there and relax. Prob check a little on Tokyo for our extension trip. Will leave the adventurous F&amp;E trip for the next tour ba.. when Val is older.

Yenz: Thats a very impt note. Thanks. Val was just playing around with the restaurant chairs earlier and was abt to put to her mouth. I got so paranoid, I quickly use those hand disinfectant to clean her hand before she even put her fingers in her mouth.

Pinkypink: Be going there in mid May. Hopefully can catch Cherry Blossom in time.


New Member
