So now that the baby is here, and mummy is spending 25 hours everyday looking after the baby, who is looking after mummy? Daddy is. That’s why he’s here, researching what to buy to pamper mum.
Baby stuff is so amazing. Those expensive creams you buy from brands XYZ just don’t seem to keep up with the amazing ingredients that they put in baby stuff. For example, I recently had a zit on my neck – like most shaving men do, and instead of the usual zit creams that you’d apply, I tried a little bit of the California Baby cream that I was applying on the baby’s butt on my neck. Don’t ask me what the connection was. I just tried it.
Voila. Gone in 36 hours.
Anyway, to pamper mummy at home, I thought I’d get her some stuff to help with the scars.
*Pro Tip: Do NOT buy these for her unless she’s asked you about the scarring first. E.g. If you preemptively buy these for her she may think that you’ve judged her scars to be HIDEOUS and these are HINTS. Bah. Drama…
Here’s what we got from Mambino:
Organic Youth Glow Face Serum <<< Link– I’ve already got youthful glow (haha) so this was clearly for wifey. Have you heard of what ACS-mums look like? I think this is the secret sauce. Immediately after giving birth, wifey had a breakout and no time to pamper herself. All those skin care regimes that were done pre-pregnancy are out the window.
Scar Repair Booster + Belly Butter <<< Link – For those stretch marks use it with belly butter. It’s not going to disappear tomorrow but it’s definitely lightening up for wifey. We’re going to keep using it till this bottle runs out but if it’s good, we’ll just get another set of each.
Body Toning Oil <<< Link – All those bits of skin that had to expand while holding baby in, this is supposed to help firm it up. I had a doctor who once told me that the edges of my eyes were too sloppy and soft. I’ll try a bit of this and see how that goes. Maybe it will work like spray-on botox.

Bonus gift to yourself: THE STICK <<< Link to Qoo10.sg
So carrying the baby around is going to strain your back and arms. IF you like DIY, for just $10 you can use the stick to massage your muscles back into place. For those who don’t mind spending a little more, go to Wan Ling Healthcare Center @ Fu Lu Shou Complex for some serious out of body massage experiences. Throw all those aromatherapy nonsense out the window. These guys know their stuff and super reasonable. Just wait a couple of weeks so your post-op scar doesn’t… burst?
The massage here is the STRONG, CHINESE type. but local masseuse and nothing dodgy. It’s so good that wifey goes on her own now without me
