Hegen bottle
Anyone can share ur feedback on Hegen bottles?
Heard not bad
Heard good and quiet affordablw.. but was hoping they have nicer color ones.. like black or just clear transparent instead of looking like old fadded bottle milk color
I have been using hegen bottles for more than nine months... So far, it is my most favourable bottle (easy to wash: wide neck, excellent material: PPSU high boiling point & not easy to break & easy to

Heard good
My LO loves it! I like it too because when she’s older, I can use it as her food containers and for now, I find it very easy to clean and transfer frozen EBM into it without any spillage.. :)
Diaper stocks
Any idea how many newborn diapers I should get??
VIP Member
I got a carton but the last pack was getting a little tight. Guess 2 or 3 packs is enough. My baby has always been around 50th percentile as a gauge
Don't have to get too many because they'll outgrow it fast. Perhaps 2 packs is a good number
Have a stock of at least 2 extra pack at home.

As babies grow very fast during the first few weeks don't stock too much. Just 2 extra packs would do. but if you feel your baby is getting a little big for the diaper, have one extra pack of the curr

Believe you can get max 2 pack, they outgrown really fast. By then if baby still can wear NB, you can easier order at Qoo and they deliver over. Advise not to stock.
Newborn hat
Any idea how many should i get??
Don't need so many for sure. I think 1 or 2 is sufficient
I wouldn't recommend getting a hat. I feel in Singapore where it is very humid to begin with, a hat will just make your baby feel warmer.

Actually, a hat is not essential. Read this: https://sg.theasianparent.com/why-newborns-dont-need-hats

2-3 only. Don’t get too many as babies grow up fast
Try 1 or 2 first. If your baby keep putting them out then you shouldn’t get more but if your baby loves wearing hat you can get as many as you want.
Breastfeeding pillow necessary?
Breastfeeding pillow necessary?
I use normal pillow 😁😁
It depends on mum, but generally this isn't needed although the position will be a little better.

I bought from TMC but only used it for 1 month. They will grow out of it so I feel that it is not worth it to buy. Can just make do with sofa handrest or pillows.
Not necessary. I din use it
It's not necessary for me but depends on individual.
Post partum Massage
Anyone signing up Madam Partum's post massage? Any review/price plan from baby fair?
Check them out at baby fair. Better promotion.
I heard a lot of good reviews of them tho
Caffeine intake
Well mummies.. i am feeling slightly guilty for having caffeine when i am pregnant.. one cup of milk tea on some days when i am craving for it shouldnt be a big issue right?? : D
VIP Member
One cup is totally fine. I still take bubble tea sometimes. Without the boba because the tapioca is very hard to digest
No big issues I guess.. I take 1cup of coffee everyday during my pregnancy
My first child, I have tea every morning n drink bubble tea most of the time. It turn out fine..
I feel the same! Trying to curb my teh tariks to less than three cups a week 😂
