There is good news for mums in Singapore: Aptamil Toddler & Junior Gold+ is now available here too! Read this article to find out why it is the brand of choice for some mums.

Mothers come in all shapes and sizes – each one has a unique brand of love and subscribes to a different parenting philosophy.

However, whatever the differences, there is one thing that unites all mums, and that is their desire to make sure that their little ones grow up to be happy, healthy and well rounded individuals.

Thirty-two-year-old Isabelle Wyder, mum to 20-month old Marc and expecting her second baby, says that she has a “hands-on and easy-going” style of parenting while 29-year old Carrie Wong, mum to a 14-month-old daughter, describes her parenting style as “free and easy while guiding (my) child to be independent”.

However, both these full-time working mothers have a similar approach when it comes to deciding what is the right way of ensuring their child’s intellectual, emotional and physical development.

These mums make informed choices

Both Isabelle and Carrie are full time working mums, with important careers. Yet they are both very vested and very involved in their toddlers’ lives – making sure that they are making the right choices for them at all points.

Isabelle, who is a Human Capital and Communications professional, says she is very involved in Marc’s learning and tries to “talk to him a lot, read books, explain what we see, what is out there in the world.” Carrie, an HR professional, makes sure her daughter’s physical and intellectual development is on track “by exposing her to different sensations and environment and demonstrating how things work.”

Rather than sending their toddlers to enrichment classes, they both prefer that their kids have social interactions with other children their age through planned playdates or in the playground.

When it comes to nutrition, both Isabelle and Carrie are very particular that their children have a balanced diet. Isabelle says, “I want my son to have a balanced diet, make sure he gets all the nutrients he needs to be healthy and have energy throughout the day to play, learn and develop.” To ensure that her toddler is getting the right nutrition she “makes sure that he is exposed to different food and eats balanced meals, e.g. a little bit of everything: carbs, fats, meat, milk products etc.”

For Carrie, her daughter must have well-balanced meals too, “where she gets what is essential for her growth as well cultivate good eating habits.” She says she keeps in mind what food servings her daughter needs to have daily and subsequently plans what to cook to ensure that the meal addresses her nutritional needs.

Both Carrie and Isabelle take great care to ensure that the choices they are making for their children at every stage of their lives are well informed and well researched. There is much thought behind every action.
