    Hi Mummies,

    I have a good confinement lady to recommend. Her name is Aunty Sabrina who is currently booked till end 2012. She is still doing my confinement now and her last day will be 1 June 2012.

    She is very chatty and friendly, clean and neat, can take my baby's american timing well, cooks good food and is very motherly towards me. Her EQ is very strong and knows how to stay happy during the 28-day stay, so that she can pass her happiness to the baby. Overall, I'm happy with her confinement service.

    There are other good reviews about her as follows: -

    Hi Mummies,

    I would like to recommend my confinement nanny Lian Jie (Aunty Lian). I personally find her good as I can see she genuinely loves baby which is an important criteria for me as I definitely would not want an inexperienced nanny mishandling my precious baby.

    In terms of confinement food, she would ask what I don't eat etc and tries to cook a variation of food based on the limitations. She also makes herbal soup for lunch and dinner and also tonic for me to drink at night so that I can have more breastmilk.

    I understand she is already booked till end of 2012, but you can try calling her at the below no to check:

    Malaysia: 019-993 9483
    Singapore: 82857060

    While typing this post, Aunty Lian is packing up to leave as today happen to be her last day. Will definitely miss her as she has been a great help to me. Most importantly, she is an easygoing person to get along with.

    Hi piorpy, my confinement auntie is really good for me! she takes good care of me and my baby, leaving me with no worries. her food is pretty good too and being a first time mummy, i really learn alot from her. bathing my son was scary at first, but she will slowly guide u thru. she believe in letting the mummy have ample rest so i didn't need to take care of nite feeds (unless you insist on latching) and learning how to bathe the baby only comes in after 2nd week. i felt a tinge of sadness when she left actually.

    she is pretty popular since she is fully booked till oct when she was doing my confinement in end feb-end mar.

    as my edd was near CNY this year, she told me that the rate is $3k. not sure if this will change for 2013. she said that she didn't accept any jobs for CNY, not sure if she will change her mind for 2013.

    her name is yafang. SG number is 8110 5075. Malaysia number is +60 177570779. Tell her recommended by Meifen from Toa Payoh.

    Hi Mummies-to-be,

    You may want to consider my confinement aunty, Aunty Tian Hua. She is recommended by my friend who also engaged Aunty Tian Hua for her no. 1 through the forum.

    I engaged Aunty Tian Hua to look after my twins. Would say she is experienced in looking after newborns and likes children. She cooks my meals and is good with tonic soups. She also handles the night feeds herself as much as possible though sometimes I have to help out when my twins feeding times clash. In general, would say that this CL is jovial, chatty, loving, and willing to share information. She even gave my maid tips on how to feed babies.

    Aunty Tian Hua is still with me now till next week. Understand she is fully booked till end of the year. Those who are keen may want to contact her directly 98963237 / 60139977374. Just say you are recommended by the twins mummy [​IMG]

    Btw, I applied for the work permit for Aunty Tian Hua and I believe she will also request the same of future engagements.

    Hi 2013 mothers to be,

    First and foremost,congratulations and its a beginning to a really beautiful and wonderful experience. Thus cherish every moment of your pregnancy with your husband.

    Confinement nanny is what one should definitely look for at the start of your pregnancy. Amazing confinement nanny are definitely hard to come by as they are always booked up.Therefore i would like to recommend my confinement nanny, Sabrina from Malaysia.

    Sabrina is amazing with newborns,experienced, not over-bearing,shares her knowledge on taking care of a newborn and imparts knowledge on a good healing process for the mother.
    She cooks well and takes good care of me during my whole confinement period whilst she dotes on my newborn.
    She is clean,neat and ensures the best for both mother and newborn.
    She also cooks for my in laws and hubby everyday even when i have a maid.
    She is very cheerful,helpful and is very bubbly personality!

    She really loves taking care of newborns when you see how dedicated she is. We wanted to extend her services however she is already fully booked.

    She is currently fully booked till Feb 2013.

    We had a farewell dinner for her yesterday with the whole family and all of us miss her. She was not only a confinement nanny to us but has became like a family member to us.

    We will definitely engage her for my #2.

    I would strongly encourage all mummies who needs a confinement nanny to book her early, as she is booked up very quick.

    She is now in Msia and her next engagement is in a weeks time.

    You can contact her at 81055776(SG) or 0164681225 (m'sia).

    Here are previous reviews from other mummies who have engaged her. I am thankful i did my research and found her.

    Hi all,

    I've got second thoughts about the confinement lady, Aunty Tian Hua whom I recommended earlier (posted Jul 8).

    1) When she left, my kitchen was FULL of ants, oil & food stains, especially the corner which she cooked at. I realized she doesnt clean up after cooking and her rationale is : she is cooking there everyday, so no need to clean everyday.

    2) I also came to realize that she has taken ALOT of things from my fridge & kitchen without my permission and when my helper asked if she has told me about it, the aunty's reply was : there are so many things in the frige, just take lah, why need to ask.

    This is on top of the regular meals, fruits & snacks which she eats together with the rest of my family. I only saw the drastic depletion in my kitchen supplies recently as I hardly open the fridge during confinement (supposed to avoid cold stuff).

    There are other reasons as well, perhaps too many to list out here. In a nutshell, my family is extremely irked by her lack of basic courtesy and respect. As such, I personally will NOT recommend her and will NOT use her in future.

    I leave it to you to decide.. but if you do want to use her still, pls do not say you are recommended by me [​IMG]

    Hi , would like to reccomend my fantastic CL , was really lucky to have her as i initially hire one cl who was money grabber , ask for higher pay , air ticket to penang , minimum $200 ang pow and final straw was that she insist on "helping" me buy expensive things like abalone .. so i sacked her ..

    Luckily i got this CL who initially retired to take care of grandson .. now she just decided to come back and i got her.. finishing my confinement next .. she is god send ..Her name is auntie Hui Feng ..

    My baby is extremely fussy and cry for milk every hour . She is quite pro breast feeding thus dun mind staying up the night to take care . She wakes up ard 6 am just to start preparing my meal .. everyday breakfast , lunch , dinner is like restaurant style .. so far , into my 26 days of confinement i only have 2 repeated dish ... She make very good food even for my husband and my fussy mother and a separeate set for my dad. So daily , she cook 3 type , one set for me , one for mum and husband , and one set for dad who is vegetarian . SHe also is quite clean and can tell she love baby. Extrememly patient and kind , not wasteful at all ... imagine when i was in hospital , she brought my confinemnet food even when i ordered hospital meal , then she say dun waste and she can help me eat the not nice hospital food if nobody eat .. very nice and sweet lady ..
    There was once my mum bought meat bao and she told me that better not eat as not sure what type of meat they use , might not good for me ..so the next day she immediatey hand made meat bao me ... how many CL would do that !
    She also help to teach my new maid how to care for baby , how to do housechore , and maintain my maid cleanliness such as min 1 day bath 3 time cos taking care of baby .. she also talk sense into my maid when my maid got lazy ,.. so really is making my every penny wrth .. she make me feel that she is more of mother than a CL .. very motherly and yet not naggy .. she is modern and flexible and also respect our privacy alot.. she totally understand that having our first baby, we naturally will want to see baby more so even when hubby came bk late from work , she dun mind leaving the room when hubby come in to see so that we can have family time ... so very considerate ...
    she is also not pushy in the confinement rules, she will tell u what to do but if you decide not to, she will respect too .. (etc like me i die die no give bottle till 3 weeks so for 3 weeks she patiently spoonfeed my baby thru the night ). The only thing she very admandant about is mummy have to drink enuff soup .. so she gave me 3 big bowl a day and insist i drink cos it will help produce milk ...
    She is also frenly to all guest that comes and dun mind cooking extra for them .. i duno what bad point to say abt her as i have yet to find any ,, can only thank her by posting good review and reccomendation .. i will post all pics of food she cook .. but she mention that she is able to cook different thing and so much everyday cos we have alot of ingredients in the fridge .. so for those who hire her , if you want to eat something u have to have the ingredient ,,,

    I extended my confinement with her and now really cant bear to let her leave .. i guess all who employ her is lucky .. i am not related to her and fund her by a forummer recommendation too .. so since i am so free doing my confinement now i can give very detail review ... haha .. For those who ineterested please email me at chers5810@gmail.com

    Dear Mummies,

    I'm also here to recommend my confinement lady Aunty Sabrina from Penang. I was very lucky to have managed to book her at the end of my first trimester. She is doing my confinement for me since 28days ago. Here are my reasons:

    1) Contactable
    It is un-nerving as first time parents to pay a deposit to someone you have never seen and whom you're gonna entrust your confinement to (especially reading a lot of horror stories of dishonest CLs). Sabrina has always been contactable via her Singapore or Malaysia mobile numbers. She even asked me to meet her during my 2nd/3rd trimester to get a list of herbs to buy for my confinement (unlike some CLs who insist you pay them to get from you from Malaysia where you wouldn't know the actual source and costs).

    2) Love & Care for baby
    This is my first and most important criteria for a CL and she has fulfilled it well. Despite baby fussing at night or soiling diapers immediately upon a new one changed or even dirtying her clothes by spraying poo on her, she has not once complained abt baby being not good. In fact, she will still dote on baby and say cheerful things to baby. Taking care of baby is also her first priority and at any time of the day, if she can't be with baby because she is cooking or bathing, she will always ensure it is at a good time when one of us can look after baby. Upon the first cry, she will move quickly to baby and fulfill baby's needs.

    3) Care for mother
    She is especially concerned about my welfare during my confinement too. Always asking me if I'm ok with the dishes, whether there is anything I particularly like or dislike and she'd try to suit my tastes within the confinement 'rules'. She is also always reminding me to be properly clothed and not get wind. She fulfills her CL duties of preparing the longan red date tea, boiled water for my usage, herbal bath for my daily baths, breakfast lunch dinner & sometimes even supper preparations. She also washes and sterilises all pump parts for my ease of use and gets a routine in place for my meals and implements an easy-to-follow process of sterilising and storing of bottles and pump parts.

    4) Hygiene
    This is of utmost importance and I have no need to remind her of this as she has high standards. Even if the cloth diaper (used to lay at baby's head or to swaddle baby or to lay on the breastfeeding pillow) is a little wet, she will change a new and dry one. She ensures all baby's stuff are washed cleanly and monitors when my maid does it and reminds my maid to do it thoroughly, setting the standards high so that it'd be easier for me to monitor my maid when she leaves. She herself bathes twice a day and sterilises her hands (with the hospital grade steriliser i bought) or washes her hands before touching baby.

    5) Experience
    She has many years of experience despite still being in her 40s, thus she has the expertise and also the energy to still deliver her duties well. She is organised and helps me to organise the baby's trolley and diaper bag and teaches me what to prepare for baby's needs. When my baby has some rashes on her face, she advises us to get the baby lactacyd and she diligently uses it to clean baby's face and the rashes have cleared up almost completely. She also prepares sterilised cotton balls wet with boiled water (in an airtight container) by my bed so that I can swiftly clean myself before pumping and breastfeeding. She has also been very patient teaching my maid on how to continue helping me with my confinement as I intend to do until 40days with my mum & maid's help.

    6) Cheerful Personality
    She is very bubbly and chatty. She can actually become 'bosom buddies' with my mum in these short weeks which is no mean feat as my mum is very strict at home & at work and rarely laughs and chats with anyone. She can actually cheer my mum up with her anecdotes and cheerful personality such that my mum actually opened up and they chat about many things. This is really one less problem for me because I was originally worried that my CL can't get along with my fussy mother. But now, I am so very heartened to see my mum has found a friend in Sabrina. Staying in someone's home for 28 days deprived of proper rest and sleep is not easy but her positivity and cheerfulness has helped herself and all of us pass the days so fast and in a happy atmosphere.

    7) Easy-Going
    At first, she was apprehensive about me having a dog at home as she is really scared of them. But she still carried about her tasks daily while trying hard to live with my dog under the same roof. And although cooking should only be restricted to herself and my hubby and me, she also did not mind cooking for my family and even patiently taught my maid how to cook. Despite me having a maid, she also helped with chores like washing, preparation of ingredients, cooking, etc although I have told her the chores can be done by my maid. She has also gotten along well with my maid and everyone else in the family.

    8) Committed
    She is committed to her tasks and does not request to go out etc (unlike some horror stories I read abt CLs leaving the house for hours). To ensure I have a good rest, she doesn't bring the baby to me especially when I am resting. Throughout the 28 days, yesterday night was the first and only night she brought baby to me in the middle of the night as baby was crying and not soothed despite clean diapers & EBM in bottle (the usual), as baby was looking for me and my smell as after I latched baby on, baby slept. All other nights, she has handled baby on her own (unlike some CLs who just pass baby to mothers the moment baby cries). She will always ensure all the necessary tasks are finished before she rests.

    She has sort of become part of my family and I really cannot bear to see her leave tomorrow. I believe my mum and I would be in tears. Time flies and 28 days have passed. I will bid farewell to Sabrina tomorrow (later today) and I do hope to see her again soon if I can conceive a second baby. But of course I hope she'd be available then for me!

    Thank you Auntie Sabrina! May you get assignments that appreciate the good work you do for the baby, the mother and the family [​IMG]

    Hi all

    I had a very bad experience with my confinement lady named AH YONG +65 91329207 / +60107763883 / +60173937890. She is from Muar and was recommended by another confinement lady as she was fully booked on my due date. Some senario:

    1) She is annoying. Keep talking about money. Before birth, she keeps calling to remind me on the Ang baos … first and last day

    2) When I gave birth and before i discharged from hospital, I checked with nurses how much ml of milk given to my son. It was 30ml. From the first day she came, she fed my son 30ml. However my boy started crying 30minutes after feeding. Ended up she fed him another 30ml. Meaning double amount of milk were given!!! Babies’ tummy is like a size of walnut. And when she tried to burp him, he puked all out.

    3) She is very lazy. Every morning after her breakfast, she will place her used cup and plate in the basin. Her duty is to wash my cloth however she leaves my clothes for 2 days untouched except baby clothing. I had to ask her then she brings it down but handover to my maid for washing. After cooking, she doesn’t clean up the kitchen area. All these are not done just because I have a maid. Even preparation of cooking such as chopping of onions, ginger etc is done by my maid too. Must well I pay my maid to do it. What for I engage her?

    4) She discourages me from giving breast milk in the middle of the night. She insisted on giving my son formula. She said formula make baby feel fuller. I do agree formula is fuller but the main point is she wants baby to sleep longer so she can enjoy her beauty sleep. She keeps complaining baby wakes up 2 or 3 hours making her no energy to work during the day. But is normal for a newborn to wake up that often right. Moreover she does take afternoon NAP.

    Finally on the 15th day, she suddenly came to me and said she wants to quit. She said she’s totally exhausted and ask me find another confinement lady. This year is DRAGON year. Don’t expect me to get one replacement immediately. After she left, I felt so helpless and broke down and cry. End up I had depression. Cried on few occasion. Such irresponsible confinement lady shouldn’t do confinement for people. PLEASE BEWARE OF HER !!!

    I would like to update my 8 Aug 2012 post.

    We extended Yu Jie but were not pleased. Some of the things which changed our opinion are:

    1. She bathed & wiped baby's face using smelly cloths & even used water which had been used to wash baby's mouth to wash baby's eyes. When we told her not to do so, she argued that it's ok to do so.

    2. The dishes she washed were often not clean no matter how many times we pointed it out to her. Dishes had leftover food, utensils were oily, cups had her leftover oats from her breakfast. Worst was my breastpump parts had foreign stuff on it after she had supposedly washed it.

    3. She served uncooked food a couple of times. Not only that, when we told her the fish was not cooked on the inside, she argued that "this fish is like that, red in colour". However, after cooking it further, the raw red changed colour to become cooked white.

    4. She spoilt / broke many things including microwave oven, kettle, milk bottle, plate, spoon, basin, dishwasher detergent dispenser & even tripped the house circuit when she burned the kettle cord. Instead of apologising, she would make all sorts of excuses to argue that it's not her fault.

    5. She passed baby to an insurance agent we were meeting only the second time without our permission.

    6. She scolds baby for crying.

    7. When baby had rashes & we asked her to wash the net bouncer, she had to argue that the rashes were not due to the bouncer & that the bouncer was bought after baby started having rashes (which was not true).

    8. She lied that another CL we met was getting more than $2500 when the other mummy had not even paid that amount to the CL agency.

    9. She took back the ang bao she gave baby (apparently she had placed it on baby's bed for a short while), saying that she thought we didn't want it, but we didn't even see it! She said she would give baby another ang bao, but she never did.

    If any mummy still wish to engage her, she did do those things I mentioned in my 8 Aug 2012 post.

    But we will never hire her again nor recommend her to anyone.

    Hi I am looking for CL who can work on a part-time basis (9-5) without stay-over because my hubby is not used to having a stranger stay over at our house. Any recommendations for that??

    Hi, my CL is really good for me! She takes good care of me, my 2 years old daughter and my newborn baby, leaving me with no worries. Her food is pretty good too. She believe in letting the mummy have ample rest so she will totally take over in the day time and i take over during nite feeding as i insisted on latching.
    My eldest daughter keeps asking for her when she comes back from childcare as my CL will cooks her fav foods for her to eat.

    For those lloking for CL during CNY period, She told me that the rate is around $3.2k, not sure if this will change for 2013. Currently she is still available during CNY.

    Her name is Mei Qing, SG number is 82657476. Malaysia number is +60 167333008. Tell her recommended by Ah Li(Donna) from Jurong West.

    Hi,

    I'd like to recommend my confinement lady, her name is Ah Yi Ana. I'm doing this out of goodwill to her as she is such a nice lady and, as she is Indonesian, she is particularly suitable for Indonesian mums like me.

    What I truly like about her is that she is not pushy about confinement rules and very open to feedback. She is also very understanding and she doesn't take things personally, which I find really important as we can get very stressed out during the first month and sometimes just don't have the capacity for tact and diplomacy.

    I can't speak Chinese, which was why I didn't engage a CL from Malaysia. Ah Yi only speaks Bahasa Indonesia and Hakka, which suits me.

    As for confinement duties, Ah Yi Ana can cook very well, including typical Indonesian dishes, like nasi kuning, rendang, etc. She also sweeps and mops the floor and washes the whole family's clothes. She's been with us for almost 2 mths now and I'm really gonna miss her when she leaves. Sigh....

    Do PM me if you'd like to know her contact.

    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.

    Hi Everyone, I would like to recommend a good confinement nanny that have just finish doing confinement for me. She is auntie Siew from Tangkak, M'sia. She have taken good care of my baby girl,very attentive to her as I did'nt hear my baby cry often and auntie will attend to her within minutes once she start crying.

    Auntie Siew is also very hygine as she will mop and clean the kitchen everytime after cooking and does'nt mind to help me with some light house chores(moping, washing toilets and etc). She will also do all the marketing for me daily as the market is just few blocks away.
    Every meal she will prepare a big bowlof soup for me to boost my breast milk supply and will prepare dinner for my husband as well for dinner.

    I'm not receiving any token from her for writing this, it's just my little appreciation to her for taking good care of me and my baby girl during my confinement month. Btw, she is a stay in confinement nanny with me for 28 days which gives me a good night sleep at night as she will take care of all the night feeding.


    She is contactable at M'sia +6016-6870058 / SG-83058350 if you are interested to check her out.

    Hi,I got this lady through my friend who had used her service and proven good. I had used her for my own Confinment in July this year. She's really good that I extended her services. So she's been helping me for slightly more than 2 mths.

    This confinment aunty is very good, hygienic, responsible and hardworking. Once she finish the chores, she would take the initiative to carry baby so that i can rest. My kitchen and whole house is so clean when aunty is around.

    She takes care of my baby well and wash baby's bottom regularly. Some Confinment lady just use baby wipes. This Aunty uses cotton and water. It's lots of work man. She even uses handkerchief to clean baby's mouth after every breastfeed session & burp baby. She even wakes up in the middle of the night to help me change baby's diaper, wash my breast pump and burp baby. It's tiring but she still wakes up every morning at 7plus.

    She cooks well. She knows how to brew henessey chicken for takes 5hrs! Her Confinment food is delicious! Never sick of it.

    She's really patient and doted on my baby. She even help me feed my 2 yrs old when i'm busy with my baby. She does this without even me asking her to do.

    I address her as "Aunty". Her HP is 82352012. She's from Malaysia JB. Has 30 over yrs of experience. She's quite booked so hurry. now her only slot is May 2013. You can tell her that you are recommended by her July 2012 customer.

    Even after she had finished her assignment, she still calls to check on my baby. Hardly any Confinment lady would care so much. To me, she's even better than my mum. That's why I'll miss her even till now. I still keep in touch with her. Hope u guys will be blessed by her just like i did.
