    Aiyo, I also work until I deliver, cos my case was induce as at 40weeks exactly...cos my ger refuse to come out by herself...*lol*

  33. xue_ni

    xue_ni Member

    i intend to B.F

    went to mrs wong class, she said no need to buy so early.. scarly no milk.
    somemore she said we can try using the B.P at TMC before deciding which to buy...

    which pump u using?

    ur ger too comfy inside.. haa~ hope my son will come out on Aug.. not too early or too late.. haaa~
     
  34. ahblur

    ahblur Active Member

    Xue,
    That time what I did was I bought the Avent Manual Pump cos its quite gd and cheaper. Like u say, I donno got milk anot so dont wanna spend so much on pump yet. But after 1 mth of BF, I gave up on the manual pump, I bought the Medela Dual Pump and its been serving me for bout 1 yr till now I am still using it [​IMG]
     
  35. xue_ni

    xue_ni Member

    hmm... i think i'll try the pump at TMC then decide which to buy..
    many says manual pump is tired...
    electric pump seems so ex for me..
     
  36. ahblur

    ahblur Active Member

    xue,
    Manual pump is tiring but if u are almost always latching on ur bb then its okies cos u will seldom use it unless u happen to be "milk cow" still got lots of milk even after bb latches...hehe [​IMG]
    As for electric pump I bought mine at about $265 at metro sale for medela dual pump. And it comes with a box of free breast pads and 3 free medela breastmilk storage bottles. So it was quite a gd buy at tat time [​IMG]
    Also, if u are a working mum and u intend to BF even after returning to work, u had better get a electric dual pump so u dont need to spend so much time pumping in the office. [​IMG]
    For TMC one theirs i think even more exp...haha, i tink its the Medela PIS and the Avent IQ Isis Uno Duo I think. Both of them about $600+ each *lol*
     
  37. xue_ni

    xue_ni Member

    oh man !
    tts so ex...
    sign~ gonna spend another bomb..
    mayb i'll decide aftr bb is out.. hv to see if my supply is gd...

    thx for the info.. =)

    hi, every one

    Me staying at Geylang Bahru, pretty near Boon Keng.. Hope to join in..just moved in.. actually wan to get flats near Boon Keng but hubby dun wan.. he wan to stay near his parents (who is staying near kallang station)..

    I am planning for a baby but was a bit loss on what to do as in to look for a gynae etc?

    Hearsay that need to take some jab before trying but dun know which one.. hmmm.. i guess need to find a gayne first but me also dun know where to find one.. I am looking for a female gynae around our area and delivery at Mount A...where u all delivered?

    Hi LC [​IMG],

    Hi, Celeste

    Is TMC expensive? u went for natural birth? my parent in laws are putting pressure on me to have kids.. can be quite pressurize sometime.. do you really plan ahead before you have children? I quite paranoid and contradicting.. one hand wan to have a child but on the other hand worry I cannot cope and hubby cannot give the support i need..is wat i am experiencing normal?

    LC [​IMG],

    Sorry for the late reply. TMC ah....mine quite cheap, cos my gynae told me to opt for 4-bedder ward and he managed to get free upgrade to 2-bedder ward for me. so I paid for 4-bedder ward pricing only. And yes, I had natural birth w/o epidural so saved a bit too. After all those medisave claims etc I still got back little bit of cash...*lol*
    Actually dont succumb to pressure of having kids. Only have kids when you are financially and emotionally ready and the very minimum, u cannot dislike kids.....either be neutral or must love kids [​IMG]
    If you have PILs or ur own parents able to care for your kids then its no problems. Let me tell u my scenario.

    I move from CCK are all the way to Boon Keng so that my parents can occasionally drop by to jaga my maid cos my ger is taken care of by my maid. Note : Nobody at home to jaga her hor, I even have to install 3 cams at home to monitor her just in case. Even with such difficulty and problems I still manage to get by so far with having a kid. So dont worry bout things too much. [​IMG]

    Hi,Celeste

    Thank you for sharing..i am pretty sure that my MIL will be taking care of my baby,tis is for sure... i dun know why I feel protective over this taking care thing by her.. She is a housewife all this while and raised her two sons (my hubby is the youngest) but looking at how mummy boy my hubby is, I really fear the upbringing she will have on my baby..haiz... and, my hubby is super filial. just to share with you recently my FIL went overseas for a trip but my MIL did not follow. My hubby expect me too go back for dinner during this period (cos he work afternoon shift) so to accompany her. I mean though we are staying quite near but still i wan to have my own time for myself and housework.. wat's more is that finally my MIL decided to go travelling for awhile and my hubby expect me to go and check my mil house when i am on way home fr work.. My goodness!!! My upbringing is not like that.. and my bonding with my parents is different fr my hubby but seriously i can't see eye to eye with her upbringing..I dun know why but i felt so jealous of MIL.. Crazy right??? but can't help feeling that way.. i am always on the 2nd placing after her, in my hubby's heart.. felt so sad...

    LC,
    then u shld share with ur hb on ur thoughts. Tell him some things that u dont agree on. Like prob u want ur bb to be more independent etc.
    But I can share with u one thing. If your bb is taken care of by others no matter wat u have to close one eye. Even I sometimes or to close one or even two eyes on how my maid is taking care of my ger. Because we are working so we have no control on these things. As long as they got take care of bb, bb is eating well then other things boh pianz one.

    Hi Celeste,

    How old was your ger? I did check some GP around Boon Keng MRT. Think there are quite a few GPs..Thx.

    But my mil somehow prefer the PD which we seen before at Sengkang. Her name is Allison, a very nice PD, too bad it might a bit far away for mil place.

    Evelyn,
    My ger now 15.5 mths liowz [​IMG]
    I prefer the lady GP because that time when i kenna engorged and mastitis i went to her and she was very patient n careful. And I think quite ma-fan to bring to PD cos there's no PD around and somemore PD charges are a bit more costly...hehe
