It's gonna be May! (cue N'Sync's song)

My months have been hectic and tiring because I'm taking care of my little one all day, everyday! But I'm not complaining. I actually love it! If you would also notice, I have injected mommy blog posts lately and expect more to come!

Also, please let me know if you want me to review specific products that you see on my Instagram account.

Alright, so for May-June's Commenter of the Month, she will be getting the following:

Crane Humidifier

Leave a Comment
My nose is almost always congested because of allergic rhinitis. I was told several times that a humidifier might help me breathe at time (when I'm having difficulty). But for some reason, I always stalled on purchasing one and didn't believe on humidifiers.

Then I saw the humidifiers from Crane. 
Okay, so Crane is known for humidifiers that have designs appealing to children. Well, I'm a kid at heart. LOL! When I saw Crane's train humidifier, I knew it's the humidifier we're supposed to have at home.

As luck would have it, we were given a Crane train humidifier. Technically, it's not mine. It's a gift for my daughter.

We started using this in our room when my daughter was born. A lot of people also told me a humidifier is a big help to babies when it comes to ease of breathing.

As months passed by, I noticed that my nose is less congested in the morning. The train humidifier has a cool mist and doesn't require a filter. We use purified water to fill its tank (1 gallon) that can last for 24 hours. We only use it at night though since it's inside our bedroom so we are able to maximise the purified water.

My husband has a travel humidifier which we used prior to having the train humidifier. The travel humidifier has a filter and comes with a cup (to put the water in).

We love Crane humidifiers so much that we are thinking of purchasing their digital humidifier for our living room. And then another humidifier for the master's bedroom once our daughter cn already sleep by herself in her room. But next time na when there's budget!

Crane humidifier has a lot of designs but the train design retails for PhP3,499.75.

Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump

Leave a Comment
Breastfeeding changed how my mind is wired. It's all I think of now. LOL.

One of the things I received before I gave birth was this HaaKaa Silicone Breast Pump. A lot of breastfeeding mothers recommend this as a must-have as if catches your let-down (milk) on the breast that you aren't feeding on.

I cut down on skin care products during my pregnancy for safety measures since it might have a side effect on the baby. And while I was lucky that I didn't break out during my pregnancy, I still felt that my skin around the nose area got a bit dry.

Now that the baby is out, I can use my skin care products again. But to amp up my skin care routine, Panasonic Beauty sent me one of their beauty gadgets for a new skin care experience!

Nursing in Public Made Easy with Poncho Baby!

Leave a Comment
It takes a while to get used to breastfeeding your baby. It takes a while to find comfort even in your own home when breastfeeding. So, Imagine the trouble of having to nurse/breastfeed in public when your baby cries from hunger!

I tried to do all the pre-natal and post-natal shopping because I gave birth. I thought it would be better that way so at least I'm already prepared for "battle". But one of the things that I wasn't able to purchase before D Day was a nursing cover. I only had one good aesthetic reason why: I never liked the design and style of the nursing covers I have seen.

But all that changed when I saw Poncho Baby at The Parenting Emporium. Right then and there, I know it was the perfect nursing cover for me.

Lansinoh HPA Lanolin Nipple Cream

Leave a Comment

If there's one thing I learned about motherhood, it's the fact that breastfeeding is not as easy as it looks. No one really told me how difficult it could be to breastfeed a baby. You have to be mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared for this thing!

I've been suffering from sore and cracked nipples since the first day I started breastfeeding. I didn't know how to breastfeed and baby didn't know how to latch properly. And really, how do you teach a newborn to latch correctly anyway?!

I searched for tips and tricks on how to "cure" cracked and sore nipples. While the majority is saying that applying your own breastmilk on your nipples and let it air dry is the number 1 cure, I still felt the need to purchase a nipple cream made of Lanolin.

There are a lot of brands out there but I chose Lansing because it's bigger than most of the ones I've seen. It's also what the book What to Expect When You're Expecting recommends.

As per packaging, this is totally safe and hypoallergenic and doesn't need to be removed before breastfeeding - totally great cos I could be really lazy at times! It doesn't have any scent, too.

I've been using this for a month now and I'm really happy with it. I feel that it helped to alleviate my sore nipples. Baby doesn't seem to  be allergic to the cream at all!

Lansinoh HPA Lanolin is available at Mothercare for Php829.00 and at Baby Mama fir Php650.00.
