So it’s been a year since we visited the Baby World Fair at Expo.
This is where we got a lot of our “big” baby purchases: Squishy’s Graco Citi Ace stroller, my Medela Swing Maxi pump (an excellent choice), Medela Calma bottles (a not-so-excellent one), a box of Dr. Brown’s bottles (I remember this being a spur-of-the-moment decision — ended up saving the day for Squishy in the early months!), two huge packs of newborn GOO.N diapers based on positive mommy reviews on Singapore forums (but since GOO.N is not as widely available, we’ve since switched to Kao Merries), breastfeeding pillows I hardly ever used, and a bottle rack.
Now we’re back with the actual baby!
I kept seeing parents with boxes of diapers, breast pump starter kits, brand new strollers wrapped in plastic and other practical, useful things necessary to keep baby fed, cleaned, or alive.
On the other hand, we ended up coming home with this:
A homemade ball pit! (Circa 1990’s-McDonald’s inspired, with none of the questionable hygiene.)
