Since this is already my 2nd baby, I've decided to DIY my confinement due to:
1. My aunt was helping me (day time) in my last confinement but she isn't free this time, and I don't need a full time stay in confinement lady as I'll be breastfeeding & taking care at night time anyway.
2. My maid can help to bath my baby & prepare bath water for me.
3. Since I only need the meal, it'll be more cost saving to just order the food delivery.
I've been asking around for comments & checking out a few caterers that do provide confinement food delivery and then I came down to 2 options, which are SHL & Peiling. SHL was my 1st choice based on some Friend's recommendation but when I call for food tasting, they told me they are fully booked for the month of July, such a disappointment!
So then I went to Peiling for food tasting and found that their flexi-meal package is not too bad also in terms of choice of food & price, so I've decided to order 14 days of meal from them and if the service & quality is good, I will then place order for the following 14 days. The only thing that I'll need to prepare myself would be the daily red dates drinks and the chinese herbal tonic soup from 14th days onwards.
Actually we are lucky that we can have different options nowadays to plan for our confinement, and it can be catered according to our budget.
