Powerball: For the ride on coupe, I cant really comment. I borrowed one from City square mall previously. Val was very happy in it initially. But it lasted only 15 minutes. After that she was wants to get out of it. She rather be carried than sit in it. Whilst other children watch the coupe whisk past them in envy and wanted to sit in it.

If unsure, can bring Dexter to Figets to try it out or shopping malls like City Square Mall to test water. See if he likes it or not. City Square mall rents it out for free. Its mount onto a trolley for mummies to place their shopping on the trolley whilst the little one play in the coupe.

Very popular item in the mall. Its called the Kiddy taxi.

i just bought buckwheat pancake mix and did for Edgar...he seemed to be enjoying it but when i tried...it was tasteless...not nice lei...:)

i didnt put banana..only put sour strawberries..in the end, i gave him the pancake with yoghurt...

may i know what brand did u all buy? and when u mix the flour with milk and water, whats the texture supposed to be like? pasty or more watery?
i did mine and was a bit pasty so i was so scared that the inside was not all cooked...so i tasted a lot myself eventhough not nice...hehe...:-(

FAILED.....

Hi April mummies,

I am a June mummy and is planning my boy's b'day celebration. As most of you would have planned/celebrated your child's b'day, can I ask you to recommend a venue? I am looking for a place that can house abt 50 guests and food wise preferrably buffet. If you are so kind, can PM me? Thank you so much!

edj, if you are only going for a week to 2 weeks, I think there is no harm in using either mineral or bottled water for the baby.

edj, another thing you can do is to order the disposable bibs and whatever other stuff you need on Amazon and have them delivered to your hotel.. if you have around 2 weeks lead time. Same with baby food.. You just have to let the hotel know in advance that you are expecting a package.

www.sproutbaby.com - organic food pouches which I order.

Powerball, thanks..

edj, I realised forgot to answer your questions ya, I brought milk powder and cereal on board the plane, no problem. I gave bb mineral water while in LA, in SF I gave tap water cos my relatives said can drink.. hahaha, don't know lah but didn't have problem after drinking so should be ok I guess
Yes, disposable bibs very impt! I forgot to bring, and only bought normal bibs.. so must keep washing everyday and sometimes not enough bibs so must reuse the not so dirty ones.. yucks!! Then food stain difficult to wash off too

Gallop,

yeah doctor's appointment...i dont think i can make it lah...coz usually very long wait...
anyway,..i have made another arrangement with my ex colleaqeus..having lunch at paragon bakerzin..hehe...eventhough i wont be there with u all...i will be there in spirit...some more eating at the same restaurant..hehe..
 
bibs
i've been using the washable kind from Ikea, at home or out.. so far i find it good cos its very thin plastic material, so its easy to wash and quick to dry. For those traveling, may consider those.. Then don't have to bring a whole pack of disposable bibs or worry about drying those cloth bibs which i find hard to wash.

Think Ikea is selling 2 in a pack.. Not nice design, but so far pretty lasting.

edj, the california baby cream is good enough.. also you might want to use a little bit of lip balm. My gal shared my Burt's bee lip balm during the trip..

You can buy all these in the States in the Pharmacy.. Burt's bee is like USD1-2 only..

When it is too dry, I just whipped out my little container of La mer moisturiser and use it on her cheeks.. her skin is fine with it.

Eviangal, I don't have any long johns for baby. I use leggings on her and let her wear long pants/jeans etc over her leggings. I also let her wear socks and shoes to protect her feet from being too cold. I think shoes are quite important cos the socks are not that thick to protect against cold and wind.

Check the weather in Hokkaido, if it is expected to be rainy, you might want to bring a rain cover for the pram so you can still stroll her along.

Joie: Thanks. I am letting her wear a long sleeve romper and a dress over the romper with long pp pants. I have leggings too. Will prob bring it along then. Seldom let her wear those as I find it very tight over her tighs..

Need to buy more socks though.. Hardly any socks nor long sleeve rompers at home now.

Not bringing stroller only carrier so its ok. Might get her a raincoat then..

If using stroller, just get the bundleme from mothercare. It helps to keep babies warm in their stroller without too much layers. It is like a pouch which we can slip the baby in! And the best thing is, it won't fly off like a blanket when the wind blows! It is so much cheaper in the US though.

Edj, it is actually way much easier to order online coz the shops in US are not like in SG where we get everything in a single departmental store. Usually it is like one block of Walmart.. one block of Kmart etc. If you don't drive.. it is almost impossible! I couldn't find baby stuff at all when I was in Sydney leh.. end up Jovan almost got "frozen". Only managed to get those winter clothings at a factory outlet towards the end of the trip!
