This is the second time that we are engaging Aunty Mary and she is just as good as we remember her to be. Apart from being able to cook well and being good with the baby, she also helped massaged my baby. My baby was born slightly premature but Aunty Mary did such a good job of caring for her that you would not even realise now. My older child who was looked after by her when he was a newborn, is also especially close to her. I guess babies and children are able to sense when someone truly cares for them.

I've been reading about other mommies sharing their confinement experience and I felt compelled to do the same so that new mommies out there researching on confinement services would have a better sense of how some CLs are like.

I had this CL called Feng Jie from Segamat last year but she is definitely not worth recommending and i regretted giving her contact to my friend. In terms of confinement experience she's just ok, cooking is average, does basic sweeping, mopping on alternate days, handling of baby is ok except that at some nights when she really couldn't calm my baby to sleep, she would handover to me to settle. However there were many other instances that this CL went overboard.

Confinement duties - She's rather fast worker but she tried to take some short-cuts such as making 1 big pot of soup to be used in a few meals over 1 - 2 days (i.e you get overnight soup)

The main complain abt her is her work ethics.
1. Talk on phone frequently and my friend feedback that she yak on phone every night during her confinement. I find that her hp ringtone is super loud too.
2. During my confinement, she watched 2+ hrs TV during some morn/aftns cos there’s not much chores for her to do.
3. Deployed cunning sales tactics by providing ‘value-add’ services in order to peddle her own 'stuff'. She bought 2 packs of bee hoon from Malaysia as 'welcome gift', claiming that some families may forget to buy food supplies on first day of confinement. After that she peddled white rice wine at S$30 per bottle (bottled in a <800ml yoghurt bottle) to us before coming over. Told her my MIL would make glutinous rice wine for me but yet she ‘innocently’ claimed that my MIL had ordered 2 bottles of glutinous rice wine from her on the phone. MIL said that we had no choice but to buy from her since she had brought them.
4. used confinement time to do own stuff. she shopped for CNY clothes on first trip to market with MIL. Requested MIL to help her buy salmon and sea cucumber. Later requested husband to help her change currency. Also wanted to buy the hsehold items she saw in our house and wanted us to buy it for her. Once i allowed her to go out to shop, she spent 3 mornings on that. Even dropped hints that previous employers had given her some of the products or foodstuff which they had bought.
At my friend's confinement, she requested to be brought to Pearl Centre to buy clothes when my friend stay in Simei!

5. My friend said she asked for taxi fare for departure when she should already have her 'departure' ang bao. During my time, she was thick-skinned enough to request that the ‘Thank You (Departure) ang bao amt must be enough to buy a set of clothes and to pester my MIL to drive her to Woodlands train station on last day to save on her taxi fare.

Sigh, I understand that some mommies are lucky to find good CLs, although mine did her job but her funny requests really irritated me and my family and I could understand why she was sent back by two other families before her assignment's up.

Hello all, I have contacted Aunty Mary for my confinement for next year.

We willing to pay her S$2500 but she only cares for mummy and baby. I requested to cook food and wash clothes for my hubby and mil she said need additional charge but never mentioned how much.

Furthermore she requested for a single bed for the 28days, our house only have mattress (on the floor type). She said her leg pain cannot sleep on the floor mattress, she even asked if my mil can sleep on the floor mattress for the confinement days while she can sleep on my mil’s bed, which is impossible lor.

We are not willing to buy a new single bed and after much consideration we engaged another confinement lady who is willing to cook/wash for my hubby+mil and sleep on the floor mattress with total charge S$2500.

Hi, just to share.

I paid a deposit of $300 to a CL name-Anna Wong who later called me a week later to claim that she want nothing to do with my 8years old and that she would recommend someone else to take my job. I therefore rejected her offer feeling that she is not genuine. Prior to this, I brought my girl to meet her and eventually she didn't return my deposit despite saying she will return me partially.

Although I was skeptical about looking for another reliable CL (due in 3 months at that time), I knew I needed the help because I've no helper and I've another 8years old girl and my birth was a planned C-section.
By words of mouth, I gotten the contact number of my recent CL. The one reason she was recommended to me is because she is a very hardworking person.

I contacted her and she came to my place for a meet up. We discussed what to prepare (food and herbs) before the birth.

She is in her mid 40s and she keep fit when she is not on consignment. I hardly ever hear my baby cried in the night course she always wakes before the baby 'scream' for her feed.

She stayed with us for 11 weeks and my 8 years old cried badly the day she left. I gave birth in early June and she left us 2 weeks ago.

She is not attached to any agent and therefore accept confinement job solely through recommendation.

Frankly, I can't see any bad points (besides being thankful) in her even after 11weeks. Basically, she does what a CL would do (or sometimes more). My baby was well taken care of and the day
she left, she ensure everything is back in place and she even took the effort to clean the whole kitchen.

I guess at the end of the day, communications and considerations for each other plays an important part for a smooth sailing confinement journey.

Please PM me if you are keen to have her contact. Please note that I do not receive any commission from recommending, I only wanted to share my experience with other Mum to be.

I have a good CL to introduce too, her name is Siew Ling (秀玲姐). Currently she is doing my 2nd confinement for me.
She is very hardworking since the first day she came. She helps with all the housework, cleans up the kitchen after cooking. She also checks with u what type of food u prefer (but of cos.. not for the fussy as she can cook many types of nice confinement food). If u can eat everything she cook that will be better and she ensures that all food has to be fresh. She will also make sure all her work are completed before resting.

This time round, she also helps to take care of my active toddler on top of her usual chores and taking care of baby. My toddler is learning to potty train and I need her to help me bathe my toddler daily after her childcare. She even helps me pack my house daily after my toddler mess up her toys every night. These are some chores that not all confinement ladies are willing to help.
At night, she will ensure that u will rest well and she will fully take care of the baby. If u are pro-BF, she will oso help to wake u up to feed the baby.
I had extended her to 40 days this time. She is also willing to guide and teach you on how to look after your baby.

You can contact her at (tell her recommended by Xinyi via web):
SG line: 81195431 (contactable when she is working in SG)
MY line: 013-7067061 / 012-7609538

You may also PM me if you have doubts about what I had posted here it will take some time for me to reply as I do not check my mailbox daily. :)

Some posts do in fact sound quite fishy.. I'm a little taken aback at how some moms have been so impressed by CLs that they can post the same message in several forum threads about how good the CLs are.

Hihi,

Would like to recommend our confinement lady who is serving us now. Her name is Auntie Yuhua who is from Seremban, Negri Sembilan who has 9 years of experience.

Auntie Yuhua was a recommendation by our friend - she makes excellent confinement dishes, as well as non-confinement ones. She really is a great cook, as well as attentive to details.

Apart from taking care of the baby and dishes, she does washing of laundry daily, cleaning up the kitchen, sweeping and mopping of floors and toilets as well, since we do not have a maid. Most importantly, she treats and cares for our baby well. Basically she doesn't take too many breaks and works hard.

She is available now for later half of Dec and 2013.

If interested, do give her a call at the following:

Auntie Yuhua
+60 12 923 4220 (Malaysian Hp - always available)

Hi, becos too many mummies have been asking me for my CL contact, I've edited my earlier post and stated my CL contact as above. Good luck to all the mummies finding CL.

Here are more comments about my CL Meiqing. (When I posted earlier, I was still in confinement) I shd say after spending 28 days with her, she is consistent with her working attitude, not just being nice for the first few days, she really loves my baby and my 3 year old, caring for her like her own grandkids, bathing, feeding, washing my girl's poop...etc, even small details like cutting fruits into small pieces for her..etc, however, I find that she is spoiling my baby, by carrying him too much rocking too much, so I didnt like it and I told her to just let him cry and leave him in the cot....if not after she leaves I will hv a hard time taking care of a spoilt baby who always wanted to be carried.

Hi Mummies,

I have also extended her as she's soo nice. She's been cooking very yummy food for me & family daily, and we super love her dishes! She's so helpful in family chores too, and my mom was so impressed.
She is really patient with my baby too, even though my baby takes 1 hr to drink each feed, she still patiently insist to make sure my baby finish her feed.
As a first time mummy, i'm really lost even with the equipments like pumps, steralize equipments and baby items. She was the one who taught me how to use them!

Hi zdubib,

The market rate for Indo CL is not much difference from rest of CLs, depending on experience, duration of period and if there is any festive seasons.
My best friend has engaged 1 Indo Chinese CL which I highly recommend. She does cooking, baby night care and housework chores. Her charges are reasonable, averaging $2500 to $3000 (depending on festival seasons). She is well experienced in looking after mummy and child and have worked in Singapore a few times, though mainly in Indonesia. So far, my best friend has no complains as she can perform all my friend required.

As for price if looking after twins, I personally feel that the charges would be higher since its required to look after 2 babies instead of one. I'm not sure of actual rate.

If you are interested in the CL which I mentioned here, you could drop me an email at [email protected] and I will give you contact.

Hi Yenyee,

Your post in Mid Oct made me very worried (said she's available in Dec). Earlier in May13, I had already hired Yuhua to do confinement for me in Dec13 and I had even met her and gave her deposit.
Glad I called her yesterday and managed to clear the confusion.

Ladies - Yuhua is booked for Dec13 (by me) and I spoke to her that she's looking for May14 assignment. So anyone keen to hire her during that period, you can text her at her SG number (from now till 3rd week of Nov13). Otherwise u can still reach her at her MY mobile number.

I will share my experience with her after my confinement. As always, keep an open mind bcos it's my first!
