[Mommy Post] Little A goes to play Little Splash Swimming School

We brought Little A to his first ever swim, at a swim school recommended by a fellow mommy. Quick run of the place: Located in Siglap CC, it is quiet with not much people in the CC.  The pool is kept heated around 30 degrees and low chlorine levels.  5 babies to 1 teacher, 1/2 hour each time. The trial class is $45.

For the first class, it was like an induction of sort, just trying to introduce the concept of being in a vast span of water to the little ones.

Information aside, I loved that he took to the water like a fish.  Not that he could swim, but he wasn't afraid of the water, and he was playing happily.  He didn't take the instructions well but I suppose he just simply didn't understand what he was told to do.

After the class was over, there were 2 shower rooms to shower and 4 changing stations, so it was rather convenient.  Having said that, we won't be back again simply because we don't like being tied down to a specific date/time especially with kids we don't know when they will fall sick or if they need to drink milk around that time, etc.  Too many factors of uncertainty.

but I do hope swimming becomes a regular activity !

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!

[Mommy Post] Accidental Booster Alert!

If you are a breastfeeding mommy or pumping mommy, you will understand when you find a milk booster, it's like striking lottery, right?
So my hub has actually been drinking this V-Soy multigrain for quite some time, so it has a regular appearance in our fridge.  I tried it but found it to be too sweet on so I never drank it after.

One fine day, I had a small play date at my place, and I served this drink to the mommies (because all rejected my first beverage of choice - coffee) to them.  One of them reported that she had higher output and that struck up a lot of other mommies' interest to try (including myself!).  Glad to report, it does help me, but not exponentially as I still don't take a lot of it, just a small cup.   What a small cup did for me - I take a shorter time to pump the same volume and at sometimes I do get about 10-15ml more.  I reckon if I do drink a bigger cup of it, it would be even better?  But no, I didn't choose to do that because it is very cal…
