Infant care availability for dragon babies 2012

Postby ConcernedDaddy » Sat Feb 11, 2012 11:39 pm

Just had my second baby boy. Based on our observation and what the nurses are telling us, the hospital have been running at max capacity since Chinese new year. We were even chased out by one nurse on our last day in the hospital as there were people waiting in the labour wards for beds!

How far ahead do you book your infant care slot? I intend to send him about 5 months down the road, but don't mind to enrol him 1-2 months earlier just to secure a slot.

Thanks. Being a tiring 2 months!

I have signed baby for infant program at cherie hearts nurtureloft, at midview city. After checking out a number of centres in the bishan and Thomson area, this is the infant place we like most. The infantcare area is large enough with separate play sections, and very clean. they had only a couple of slots left for 2012, so we are kiasu and enrolling first. As my wife is still on maternity, we will bring drop baby off for a couple of days each week for the next two months.

Many of my friends registered while they were pregnant and some still had to wait till baby was 6mths old before getting a slot.

Do start your research early and book early. :)

I placed my deposit when i was 3 months pregnant.. It all must boil down to whether the infant care you are interested in is popular and with limited vacancy.. But i wouldn't want to take the risk as it is dragon year..
