Surviving the first trimester seems challenging, especially if pregnant mamas are experiencing terrible morning sickness, loss of appetite, lethargy and even weight loss.
Your gynaes may actually prescribe supplements to complement your diet and ensure that mama-to-be receives ample nutrients during this early stage of pregnancy. Here are some tips on how to survive that 1st trimester of your pregnancy journey!
Besides pills, pregnant mums can now choose maternal milk that are loaded with essential nutrients to cater to your new nutritional needs while fueling your fetuses. Previously, we did an extensive review on the different brands of maternal milk available in Singapore – this might come in handy for you, if you’re planning to get a can. But before that, how about some free milk samples to try, just in case the full can goes to waste?
And who wouldn’t love FREEBIES?
We know the core expenditure of things would be spent on diapers and formula (should mums choose not to breastfeed, or need to supplement baby’s feeds), and hence, we’ve put together a comprehensive list on where to get FREE diapers for your newborn (tape diapers) and tots (tape diapers).
FREE maternal milk are available too, along with FREE formula milk (also known as follow-on milk) for your little ones. However, do note that Stage 1 formula milk samples will NOT be available as the World Health Organization (WHO) supports and encourages breastfeeding for the first six months. Hence, companies and brands are not allowed to promote the use of Stage 1 formula milk.
Have fun signing up for these freebies and do expect to wait anywhere from 2 – 4 weeks for the items to be sent to you. Patience, mamas… patience…
