if you are only coming for the month of december you may want to bring whatever you usually use for the baby. you can find those products but you will pay at least 2x what you would back home. avalon & mustela are quite common - and you can find california baby at kids 21 in the forum mall - but again the prices are insane.
there are several organic stores in singapore - but not sure if they sell the formula you need. here are the two i frequent the most - you may want to send them an email to find exactly what you are looking for:
Brown Rice Paradise in Tanglin Mall http://www.mybrp.com.sg/
and Supernature http://www.supernature.com.sg/index.php (there is a mother & child link on the website - but they are good about answering email).

in re: to diapers - search this forum - there was a whole other thread about what people use. the pampers are different from those in the US (they don't have that lovely baby powder smell for one!) - but they do sell pampers. again, you may want to bring what you are used to. i personally love mamipoko diapers - and even when i travel to the US & UK i still bring some with me b/c i find them very absorbent and soft.

hi cws, so as to not pay an arm and a leg, I buy my california baby products from this wonderful mummy, http://www.thepinkcream.biz/. She organizes monthly bulk purchases directly from Cal Baby, if you're interested, get on her mailing list so as to be informed when she starts one :)

As for mustela, it is commonly available at local dept stores.

Brown Rice Paradise in Tanglin Mall has tons of baby/child skin care products like the ones you have mentioned and more. Also, Vitakids in Paragon, and Four Seasons Market in Great World City.

Organic products here are $$$$

Post by PhoenixT » Fri, 17 Oct 2008 10:54 pm

The brands you mentioned are ones I used in the US and can be found in the places mentioned by other posters. Carrefour at SunTec City Mall, Natural Market Place by Cold Storage is various areas carry Earth's Best baby food and an Australian (?) brand called Organix (or something like that). A small jar of EB food is about $1.70US/ $2.50SG.

I always have visitors from the US bring me the CA Baby lotions, sunscreen, shampoo, etc. b/c it's about 4 times the price here in Singapore. Stock up and put it in w/your shipment if you're relocating to Singapore.

Mustela can also be found here in Paragon mall, MotherCare, and other shops. Again, it'll be at least 3x the price if you're from the US.

Pampers/ Huggies are here. Seventh Generation diapers can be found at Brown Rice Paradise, and costs about $50 SG/ yikes!

i think it means cheaper n also eco-frenly on the bum :wink: but it's hell when u try to wash them... had given up cloth diapers after my son starts on solid (6M) coz the poop will start to be stinky after that period.

Nah, depends on what kind you use. I use synthetic ones - BumGenius are my favourite. They wash like a dream with only a small bit of soap and economical water cycle - absolutely no stains and if you use a bit of vinegar in the rinse then you eliminate any odor that might build up once in a while. The diapers may not degrade like organic cotton ones, but then they are so durable that they last for your kids and you can sell them on. As long as they are washed according to instructions they should last for quite a few kids, and that saves tons of disposables in the landfills.

Would have to agree with you. We used natural nappies for both of our children except when going out somewhere where it was just more convenient to not to have to carry around dirty nappies. But for normal day to day usage, can't beat 'em for cost and durability and with care they are just as easy on the bum.
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!

Much agreed 8-) i used to use bum wear, as opposed to the cotton type due to the difficulty in washing n staining. Easy to wash, and put on. Also pretty sellable after usage. But in the end....still used disposables due to convenience during outings :oops: not proud of it (eco-wise) but no choice since im juggling with 2.5kids on diapers :p
