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 …

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 …

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 …

Engineering for Kids: After School Activity

Jacob’s into building things while doing arts and craft at home or with his Lego. So I was thrilled when Engineering for Kids Philippines invited us for a trial class last Saturday at their main center at Forbeswood Parklane at Bonifacio Global City. I was told by Lalie Odal, their marketing director, that Jacob can join their Junior Engineers class even though he just turned 3 years old so long as he can understand basic instructions well.

See? These were the first things I bought for Joaquin while I was pregnant. I'm loyal to Cycles and Cradle!

Things We Love: Avent Bottles, Pigeon, Cradle, and Cycles

Last Saturday, the three of us had a family day. We rarely go out, really. Usually we’d just stay at home or visit Oscar’s family in Makati. Living so far away, it takes so much effort to go out, especially now that I’m 7 months pregnant. So when we go out, we have to go out with purpose. This time naman, we were meeting the buyer of my iPhone at Trinoma. So we did everything we could that day already. We had light lunch at Italianni’s where we ordered a Classic Caesar Salad and Parmesan Crusted Fish Fillet. I personally …

Lazada: Our Baby Must Haves (or Wishlist!)

Now that we’re pregnant for the second time, I feel like we’re more prepared when it comes to gears and clothes. We probably won’t be needing to shop for clothes for the baby for the first few months since I carefully tucked Jacob’s clothes away as soon as he outgrew them. If we’re having a girl, we’ll probably get some cute onesies but not so much since they grow so quickly! But I still find myself wanting to get some new or replacement baby gears so here’s my wishlist all found from Lazada‘s extensive Kids and Baby Department. 1. Halo …
