Spectra 9 Plus Double Electric Breastpump

Things We Love: Spectra 9 Plus from BabyMama PH

The second best thing I love with having babies next to actually having them is having to breastfeed! I’ve been an advocate of breastfeeding (regardless if you are exclusive, mixed, or if it was only for a short while) since I had Jacob. I knew right off the bat that I would breastfeed my babies because I read and read about the benefits it gives to both baby and mommy. I made the right choice because Jacob then barely got sick! He was exclusively breastfed for 3 months, mixed fed (formula, breast milk and solids) until he was about 2.5 …

Villa del Conte Artisinal Chocolates

Spoiled with Villa del Conte Chocolates!

I have to admit, this Mother’s Day was the most tiring one I’ve ever had for the past 4 years! We decided to give all our househould help a day off because they are mothers too. That meant just Osc and I taking the kids out for lunch today! It was easy before Joaquin had eczema and before he scratched non-stop. But I was treated a nice pre-Mother’s Day lunch and these wonderfully sinful chocolates from Villa del Conte! We had just gotten home from an overnight trip to Pangasinan with ME as the family driver (husband has work!) and …

Pampers-FirstBook

Joaquin’s Baby Book from Pampers FirstBook App

It took me 2.5 years to finish Jacob’s First Book that I bought from the US when he was about 6 months old. Yes, that long! I was pregnant at the time and I was nesting like crazy so I thought why not organize our albums now while I still have only one child to worry about. Who knows when I’ll get a chance to do the second baby’s first book! Joaquin is almost 8 months old and I still don’t have an actual first book for him. For the first 6 months of our new life with him, I …

Pampers Delivery

Pampers Baby-Dry: Celebration of Firsts

We were so busy this weekend! I was co-hosting a bridal shower at The Linden Suites while my boys were at the Santiago side of the family. We got home late Sunday evening and came home to this big delivery from Pampers standing in our room! I didn’t open it just yet because I wanted Jacob to open it in the morning. But I knew already what was in it based on the hashtag #FirstsWithPampers over at Instagram. It was flooded all day about Pampers’ Big Delivery event that was also showcased on ABS-CBN. As part of the Celebration of …

My Halo Baby

Things We Love: Halo SleepSack Swaddle

I’ve always been the paranoid Mom and I don’t think it gets any better as the boys get older. I’m scared of every little fever no matter the temperature. I’m scared of boo-boos that Jacob gets when he plays outside because the paranoid, germiphobe Mom in me tells me it’s going to get infected and he will lose a limb or something. What I’m even more scared of is SIDS, or Sudden Infant Syndrome. I wrote about safe sleep to prevent SIDS here. That’s why when I always put Joaquin to sleep on his back at night and his Halo …

Cudsly

Things We Love: Cudsly

Online shopping has made my life at home more sane since I rarely go out and enjoy shopping for us or for the house. Especially now since Joaquin is still very young and it’s pretty hard to drag everybody out with me. So I basically do all my baby shopping online as much as I can. I discovered Cudsly, an online baby store in the Philippines, around June this year when I was pregnant and pretty much put on house arrest/semi bedrest. It drove me crazy! It was one of the online stores I discovered that catered to babies and …

HoneySuckle Breastmilk Storage Bags

Things We Love: HoneySuckle Breastmilk Storage Bags

Hi everyone! My little Joaquin is two and a half months old already and still exclusively breastfeeding. I say this with much pride because with Jacob, I was not patient enough to breastfeed exclusively. If I remember correctly when he was around this age to three months, I decided to mix feed him with formula because Jacob was super matakaw! I felt like I couldn’t keep up and that all I did was nurse him. To think he was the only child then ha, I’m pretty proud that I am nursing 24/7 while still meeting my wifely and motherly duties …
