I have been out of jobs since I withdrew my #1 from infantcare and only recently went back to work after a tedious time finding an available slot in childcare for my son. However, my job is only a temporary assignment of 3 mths as I am pregnant. I am facing some financial difficulties thus have also switched from private gynae to subsidised one and cut down on many expenses and am aggressively looking for part time or freelance jobs but chances of being hired seem very low. I have a major concern which is the childcare fee. Soon I will not qualify for working mother subsidies. Are there any avenues through which I can apply subsidies or gov help for my son's childcare fees while I give birth and take 1-2 months to recuperate?

Choosing a boys name

How do you usually decide on your child's name if both are different genders. my #1 is girl and I'm expecting a boy this time. #1 name is Clarabelle. Would you choose a name that begins with the alphabet 'C' for your #2 or? Any nice names to suggest for baby boys?

i am a sahm and i'm now suffering from burnout. Currently, caring for a 3yo toddler and 3mo baby. at times, the demand is too overwhelming especially when both are breastfed and both wakes up for night feed freqently. #1 tends to use his teeth when he feeds which irritates me. while #2 fuss over fast flow and often make a mess. #1 has been d/l and will only want d/l... he refuse to wean. i hate breastfeeding (to certain extend). sorry for such a negative post.

when do u decide to hang ur pumps? i am 16wks along with my #2 but my #1 is only 7 mthd old. gynae has warned me abt bm drying up during 2nd tri of pregnancy and i've tried all sorts of things to increase supply but of no help. i pump 3hrly at work and my output on gd days are 20ml per pump. on not so gd days, i get only 10ml per pump. i am determine to continue but with this kind of supply, im wondering if im just wasting my time. hubby has always been supportive and told me i can continue pumping even if it takes me 3 days just to get 1 feed for #1. my lo still latches at night but will nvr be full so i hv to supplement FM still. should i just hang my pump now and conserve energy for #2? i am planning to tandem feed when #2 arrives but im scared if #1 wld nt want bm anymore.

My #1 is 21 months now and has not started talking. Still uses baby language like mum-mum (eat), though she's able to call papa, name out some animals but many elders are telling me that she's should start to talk by this age. Any idea how do I get her to express herself the correct way? I tried letting her watch videos on YouTube but doesn't help.

May I know what to eat to boost more breast milk? I don't have milk for #1, I'm afraid I don't have milk for #2 as well, and I'm giving birth in less than 3weeks times.
