    My mom works in NTUC and she said most people buy Pediasure, Enfagrow and Gain IQ.

    Btw I'm using Mamex Gold as supplement other than breastfeeding. Anyone's using that? Any feedbacks? Do you think I should change? I forgotten to consult my mom before I bought the formula =(

    If you want to calculate, a baby requires approximately 150ml/kg per day of milk. HOWEVER, this varies from baby to baby.
    Your baby may not necessarily drink the same amount at each feed so don't worry if he doesn't want to finish a bottle sometimes. Babies usually stop feeding when full.
    How to know if your baby is drinking enough?
    - pees and poos well... heavy diapers approximately five.
    - gaining weight well
    = Weight gain of 100-200g a week during the first month
    = 0.5 to 1 kg per month for the first six months
    = An average of 0.5kg per month one year

    It is helpful to plot your child's weight on a growth chart available in the health booklet. You'll may need a medical professional to explain the significance of the percentiles to you.

    I've tried Wakodo HaiHai (for baby upto 9mths old). Compared to Similac (my son only had tried this brand), it has much lesser bubbles. I had bulk purchase of Japanese Milk Powder Wakodo from overseas when my son was 1mth old. But later I have enough breast milk, so I want to let go of one carton (8tins). Wakodo is the only Japanese brand found in few Japanese supermarkets here, that's the reason I chose this brand. 850grams/tin, Expiry date: end july 2010.
    Can find the relevant info here: http://cgi.ebay.ca/Wakodo-Baby-Food-Milk-Powder-HaiHai-300g-Japan-Original_W0QQitemZ180337066257QQcmdZViewItemQQptZFeeding?hash=item29fced4111&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14

    Free delivery if buying 4tins and above. Interested, please email me at thanksgiving719@hotmail.com

    Hi poohbee,
    My BB also have rashes on his neck after he is back from the hospital. I confirmed that its heat rashes as I on the aircon about 25-27 degree after 2 days the rashes got better. U may want to cool the room where yr BB sleep but not too cold too.

    Hi poohbee,

    If you baby have colic you might want to get Rid wind(about $6) from Guardian. It helps to reduce wind in baby tummy and it can be taken from as young as newborn. Or you can go see a pediatrician , he might precribe medicine like probotics to help. However, the charges for pediatrician is very high. I pay $100+ to see the doctor as my newborn was crying very badly every night.

    Dear all
    I am considering to change my baby formula to Goats milk formula as my baby has very heavy breathing. I heard that Goats milk is good for children who have asthma . Can i check if any one is drinking goats milk? And also Enfalac, I heard from a confinement lady that Enfa brand is good . Any advice ?

    hi poohbee...
    when my baby cried non-stop last week... a fren of mine advice me to feed her with grip water. when i check with my old folks they agree. my granny said, she used to feed us that when we young.

    how do you actually know that your baby has asthma? my sister had goats milk when she was young. she has skin ellergy and couldnt take cow's milk. and up till today, she has stil astmatic.

    Hi aida (naylis_mummy)
    I am not sure how to judge if baby has asthma. But my husband say that he used to have a bit of asthma when he is young and his mum let him drink goats milk which warm his body and now he is OK. No sure how true also ... But he strictly cannot take cold water.

    Hi aida (naylis_mummy)
    I also feed my baby grip water after he is one month. Cause the instruction state one month and above ... so newborn I gave my baby Rid wind.
