    Hi,

    Mums to be.... Sharing my wonderful confinement experience in Hong Kong Oct with my confinement nanny from Singapore.

    Talking about confinement nanny, I remember in Oct where we were welcome our new born again, the experience is both an ordeal and rewarding at the same time. The ordeal started when after my wife delivered, she has not been able to rest well during her stay in the hospital because she was constantly ‘harassed’ by nurses to latch her infant during feeding hours. We are already third time parents and we do not want to be burden by breastfeeding thoughts we kept giving repeated instructions to the nurses that we do not want to latch our infant during my wife stay but still they are adamant. Finally, we are able to discharge without the nurses senseless comment about not latching and no breastmilk....! What an ordeal!

    Back home, our confinement nanny (whom we have engaged all the way from Singapore) had also arrived. She was Liong, our far fetched confinement nanny. She was able to speak English, Chinese, Cantonese and equipped with excellent skills in cooking my wife's confinement food. Our experience with Liong was overall a rewarding and was in a great partnership too. During her first week with us, she helped us to get our infant to settle down and build back our ‘dirty and messy home’. But already on her first day with us, Liong took the initiative to ease my wife’s agony over possible breast engorgement by aiding us with useful handling tips and diet help first and then sit down with us to understand ‘our ‘ idea confinement practices. Liong was young (early forties) and a very fast worker, I appreciate very much. I presume because our age is near… that’s why we ‘click’ very well!
    Her ideal of hygienic practices was in line with our habits and she is even more adamant to adhere to rules of cleanliness than us! We had a elder at the age of 4yrs earlier and she has became ‘close & attached’ to her and thus she is able to help her easily (e.g. bath, meals and also her bedtime). With this, Liong has actually shown us that she is not at all calculative in scope of work. She can actually handle both, my children and infant in a room to herself and we are blessed with ‘precious time’ to rest and to bond.
    Without having a maid in our house, we actually ‘appreciate’ initiative help from Liong, her friendly and ever eagerness to help puts our mind and hearts at ease. We are actually writing this during my wife’s 3rd week of confinement as we had the impression that we are not able to spare anytime to write up for her after her 28th days.

    You can too enjoy. Engage her at: +65 92996331 (May) Singapore

    Hi Ladies,

    I hope you are all doing well. I'm so sorry, Laurie, for your loss. I understand how you are feeling asI'm sad to say that I also had a miscarriage in December. It was my second in 3 months. Trying to stay positive and keep trying. It's tough though but my doctors have been amazing.

    I wish you all the very best with the next few months :-).

    Fiona
