From daddy’s desk – What is a breast pump to you? (Pt. 2)

Friday, September 29, 2006 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm 9 comments

Thank you for all your comments. Lemme do a quick count; 2 agree with me, 4 don’t and 2 are neutral/undecided.

Really don’t know. To me, it is as personal as a toothbrush. I have heard of people who also categorise their hairbrush as a personal item so I guess it depends on the person.

Think about it, for the 4 who have no issues about loaning, are you referring to just the pump or the entire set including bottles and teats. I did not make it clear in my 1st post but the person asking for the pump will probably ask for the bottles and teats as well as she only wants to use the pump for a short while. Toothbrush goes into the mouth, likewise the teats. Will your answers change if you have to loan the teats as well?

It also depends on the person asking, I suppose. I have a very low tolerance level for “moh liu” (Cantonese for…….someone please help me out here…. ) people. The person in question is No. 1 in telling the whole world that she has no moolah, always short in moolah, blah blah blah….but when crunch time comes, lots of money to spend on clothing, etc.

My clueless wifey, always the nice girl from next door, gets trampled by these people on their way up the social status ladder.  (Frequent visitors who want a water-fish, you know who to look for now :))

So Mom2Ashley, nothing wrong with the value of the gift as far as I am concerned but when it comes from someone who places great importance on the price tag, it only shows the sincerity of the giver.

    I only loan pump and bottle, but definitely not the teat!

    Somehow I get the feeling that it is not about the breastpump but the person who is borrowing. Good on you to protect your wife from someone who may be exploiting her. 😉

    Haha…I have the same feeling as mybabybay. The pump is yours, you make the rules. Just go with what you think is best.

    I loan a pump before as my friend’s lousy pump didn’t work, but was immediately washed and returned after use.
    But bottles…no gua…

    Loan pump? Yes. Bottles & teat? Nope! Btw, I would appreciate people giving me diapers as a gift. In fact, I’ve told my friends to buy diapers when they asked what I wanted 🙂 That’s my 2 centslah.
