Last Friday, we went to visit the newly minted mommy and her three-week old baby. For a couple of hours, five mommies were engaged in animated discussion about poop colour, breastfeeding and bringing up babies. Wen Ai brought her charming Beanie who kept us entertained while the newborn slept peacefully in her cot.
Looking at the cute little ones brought back memories of the days when my boys were little. I've had my share of anxieties but had to contend with flipping through my guidebooks for answers. I also sought help from confinement nannies and relatives.
The modern mommies today turn to friends or support groups and receive feedback instantly via Facebook or Whatsapp.
The methods may have changed but as the saying goes - It takes a village to raise a child.
