Poly doc, some are quite fresh from the medical school (i think) and may not be as "street-smart" as those normal GP in the neighbourhood in terms of communications. You also got to factor in waiting time for poly. Depending on the days, sometimes can be quite fast one lor.
In fact, for us to visit the poly is easy than the PD as it's just stone throw from my hse. less hten 5 mins walk only.
My girl had all her 5-in-1 jabs at the polyclinic.
All done by nurse, except when there are accessments on the baby then do we need to see doctor.
It all depends on your own comfort level and if you're willing to spend $ more on PD for the same thing.
To me, if i were to travel all the way to visit the PD, it's almost the same time spent waiting at the polyclinic lor, and i probably need only pay like at most 50% of the fees compared to PD fees lah. (visit PD somemore need take cab? spent money again?)
Pai seh... i so long winded... today whole day doing coldcall liao still can "talk" so much here. hahah.
hello duchess..yea i live in yishu nst 61 blk 638 ..oh very very near to ur house...hmm...u are having ur second child..cgs...is a boy or gal???cgs to u..see wen free come out meet meet wan?? bwt u workign???
btw u using baby slig??i tot of buying but kiddy palces sell very exp so i nv buy..got any cheap one to recommend me??
Trolley?? Hmm.. I tot its stroller/pram?? Me got no idea, actually.
But just wanna share some experience. Bought a COMBI 3-recliner, reversible handle for $238... My baby is now, HE'S 2 MONTHS TODAY!!
Just 2 days back, the elder one pushes the stroller and it tebalek, with baby inside. Thank God baby is alright but he cant stop laughing!!
The stroller is way too light.. The lesson I got is that eventho its a good brand and costly, it wont guarantee you the safety!!
Since its the same, I guess I will just go down to Poly for the convenience and to safe cost!!
I live at Blk 299 - the pink flat right next to the mosque..
My dad suggested sling cos my baby will cry if not carried (pampered!!). Right now, we make do by putting him in the stroller and push him around the house. So really considering sling but duno good or not. Never tried before..
okok tyty teenoyln..btw i m using nepia...hmm... to me is save money...no need buy lots of pamper,u can save up the moeny but now i sumtime use nepia sumtime use pamper..cos i see my princess only use 2 pamper a day...i mean from morning to nite then midnite i will change another pamper....diff brand for better abosoerbort...
U order Nepia direct? Shared with other mommies? Or buy from Fairprice?
Yup! for me I got lotsa loose diapers of different brands.... Cos my son is now wearing 'S' and my 'grandson' (my niece son, lah!) and 3 of my cousins' children have 'upgraded' to size 'M' so lucky me, all the extras are passed down to me!
After I converted to Nepia, I feel very guilty whenever I put on other brands of diapers on him. (U know I received dozens of hand-me-down "S" size diapers from my niece and cousins).
In terms of quality, Nepia is comparable only to Pampers. I found Nepia as good or even much better than Pampers. Unlike Pampers, there's no leakage so far. And the price of Nepia is much-much cheaper.
So far my son dun get rashes (touchwood). BTW me using Desitin for his bumbum.
So duno whether its the diapers or cream or how frequent we changed for him that may cause rashes.
how soon should we toilet train our kid?? sometime my son will pull his diaper and that means he had poo and want to change but sometimes he don't...
oh great!! my contact no is 98489331...
u staying at which part of yishun..i am staying at chong pang...though i had been staying at yishun for almost 5-6 years but i am still not quite familar with the area...
Wah so KS ah!! Already bought NB and S sizes and to think that you EDD only in September!!
We neighbours liao! I stayed Blk 299 (Pink Block) very near Chong Pang area.
I rmbr training my boy-boy was when he's about 3++. When going out, I let him wear pull-up pants but when at home, he "hang loose". Many accidents and stinky rags all over the house later, he got the feel of it and "tada" - success!

Wynn, toilet-training hor.. I also not sure.. it's just that at first my girl isn't ready. ask her to inform when she wants to pee, always accident untill one day she herself come running to me saying dun want diaper and since then, we've been quite "dry" lah.. for the past 2 nites, also dry, she even woke up to pee. But then, i get sleepless nites lor...
Teeyonl, kekeke.. Ks hor.. bthe main reason is becos my elder girl needs to use diaper mah.. so i buy, but didn't want to take all L size. so mix with nb and small lor.. That time still dunno u all here.
Heng ah... with my girl almost "ready" to go diaperless, i'm glad to say.. hahaha.. i'm not stucked with 3 packs of L size diapers, only 1 pkt at most. For the past 1 week, i think i used only 1 diaper (from my home supply lah) which is this morning cos raining.. maybe more toilet runs.
Zinie, nepia is the diaper brand.. actually, u the one living in 638 isit? if so, I got L size, can spare 1 or 2 for u to try lor. if nepia dun give sample.. we can meet like weekend late morning.. kekeke.. my girl also can see your bb.. she loves bb

I am also staying in Yishun. Staying at Ave 4, Blk 8XX.
My son is 15 months old now.
Not to worry about your gal being small size. My son is also super light weight. He wasnt keen on
milk since young so didnt grow as much as other babies. He just pass the 8kg mark when he turns 15mths.
Then lost 0.5kg due to stomach flu recently. PD says as long as baby is healthy, active, happy and meet development milestones,
we shouldnt be too worried. I am starting him on Pediasure now hopefully can fatten him a bit.
My colleague fed her gal Pediasure and her gals weight improved a lot.
My girl 28 mos also on pediasure too. Supplement for her diet, as i'm worried she's not taking in proper nutrition that she shld receive at her age.
She goes childcare during the daytime.
I am a FTWM. Dun have the luxury to be a SAHM although I wanted very much to. What about you?
My son Keane is taken care by nanny which is my next door neighbour. Which childcare does your gal go to? I am thinking of sending him to CC when he is about 2.5yrs old. Heard Carpe Diem at Yishun Polyclinic is not bad. Any comments?

Hee... I found this forum again... I am staying in YCK
You gals wanna create a table??
Do you know any recommended PD at Singapore Women and Children clinic at AMK??
I brought my boy to the polyclinic for his one month jab already. Now still sourcing for PD, else will consider going back Gleneagles for his 5in1 jab.
Did your child have fever after the 5in1 jab? I am scared my boy will get fever. It's another consideration to go to PD.
Have you decided where to bring baby for 3 mth jab??
I tried using a long scarf to tie a knot to become a sling.. lol... not bad...
I surfed through the web to find out how to use a scarf to become a sling... cos I find that those ready-made sling are expensive. And you know what... my boy slept almost instantly when I put him inside the sling... lol...
Eat durian to pump up baby's weight.. I think it's very effective... lol...
Wish you a smooth and fast delivery..
Apart from Nepia, what other diapers are you all using?? My boy gonna upgrade to S or M size already. He's outgrowing pampers premium NB, petpet S, Huggies S... So now gotta think of upgrading already.
Have any of you tried breastfeeding in public? Can share with me how? I am still figuring out how to... else difficult to bring him out...
