I loveeeee workshops. Cetaphil Singapore recently invited me to share my experience as a mother at their Baby Experience Workshop and I was absolutely honoured and excited to be part of this half day workshop!
I love sharing!
The highlight of the Baby Experience Workshop would definitely be the opportunity to hear and interact with the panel of experts.
THE PANEL OF EXPERTS
The highlight of the event was definitely the opportunity to hear from this panel of experts.
Dr. Ong Eng Keow took us through a presentation on A Survivor’s Guide to a Newborn’s First 30 Days and it was VERY informative. I really wished I knew the helpful tips and tricks he shared during this workshop, before I had my firstborn. He listed out all the common and very normal symptoms and illnesses during a newborn’s first 30 days, when to panic and when to take it cool.
Ms Kang Phaik Gaik is super well known for her advice on baby massages and baby bathing techniques. I was definitely very worried about how to handle bathing a newborn! Ms Kang did a live demonstration on how to bathe a baby and she was very clear and assuring. For all those looking for tips on how to bathe your newborn, you really should attend a talk by her.
Ms Sylvia Kang shared heaps of great advice on making your breastfeeding journey a successful one. I found her very relatable and real. Her advice came from a mother just like you and me and not from an older generation. You will find her very refreshing and her advice, very useful.
Tips from Singapore Mom Bloggers
Cindy (TheHootingPost), Claudia (TheLovingMum) and I shared our experiences bathing our newborns on stage. The turnout at the Cetaphil Baby Experience workshop was huge. We shared our own tips with the mummies and daddies and I hope they found our advice useful!
For me, I didn’t bathe my newborn until my confinement ended. My MIL gave Daniel his bath everyday till I took over. At first I was scared! I had a lot of questions like:
- What if he moves and slips into the water?
- What if I drop him?
- What if I don’t clean him enough?
So many what-ifs!
My tip is to be confident. If you are fearful, your newborn will feel it and that will add no to his/her insecurity. Imagine being carried by someone who isn’t confident of carrying you – scary right!
The Cetaphil Baby Experience Workshop
It was a great experience. I bet all the mummies and daddies who attended went home all leveled up. I saw many of them taking down notes and videos. Check out the highlights of the Baby Experience Workshop in the video below:
The first Baby Experience Workshop was sold out very quickly. Keep yourself in the loop and sign up for their newsletter so that you will be informed of upcoming workshops!
