If you are a young parent in Singapore, you might be buying your baby products at Cold Storage. The items you may want to buy includes baby diapers, formula milk powder, baby wipes and baby skin care products. If you want to save some money, you would perhaps try NTUC/ Giant/ Carrefour. For even lower prices, your parents will advice you to go to Sheng Siong or the traditional Chinese medical hall (yes, they sell some baby products too).
Even lower prices? Johor Bahru.
