Sorry to hear that Mom Dcnina22, specially that Baby's just 11 months. Just religiously follow the medication, everything will be okay. God bless.

FAQs and Common Pregnancy Concerns / Re: Anmum Vs. Enfamama

I first tried Anmum vanilla. I liked it at first, pero during the 2nd month I'm just short of throwing up. Buti na lang my OB gave me samples of Anmum Choco flavored. Since then yun na yung drink  ko.

Labor and Child Birth / Re: signs na malapit na manganak
« on: September 02, 2010, 05:02:00 pm »
The night before I gave birth, every hour ako nagigising due to momentary pain (I suppose that's contraction) and pumupunta ako ng washroom to pee. I was both worried and excited kaya I'm monitoring the intervals. Pero hourly pa nga lang yung contraction, matagal pa masyado yung interval. That morning I was due for checkup, when my OB performed IE on me, manganganak na raw ako that day! I was admitted 10am and gave birth 4:45pm. Hindi naman masakit ang labor. The day before I had a few spotting, I texted OB if I needed to go to ER na, sabi niya tom na lang since I have check up na rin. I was over 39 weeks when I gave birth.

Special Occassions / Re: Civil wed or church wed?

Church wedding. Kahit sa Chowking lang ang reception after or kahit sa bahay lang. Kahit wala nang traje de boda, white dress lang. That was what we preferred. Medyo rush din kasi, we did all the preparations in 3 months. My in laws were suggesting civil lang muna para we can save & prepare for the Church wedding. We have savings for a simple Church wedding, but based on the type they're hoping for, hindi namin kaya. Pero they insisted it has to be a 'simple but grand' one if it's a church wedding, even if they have to share with the expenses. So we ended up having over 120+ guests. It was simple, yet a memorable one. We're happy we stood up for what we want.

My hubby and I have access to each other's phone. Minsan we ask each other to check on our phone specially if we're busy doing something else. Hindi rin ako masyado mahilig mag-delete ng messages so sometimes I ask his help in cleaning up the Inbox. Ganun din sa computer, email, facebook, etc. We know each other's passwords. I don't know if that's healthy or not. But so far it is in our case.

Toilet Training and Diapering Essentials / Re: baby wipes...yes or no???
« on: September 01, 2010, 05:28:17 pm »
When we're at home, wash talaga si Baby sa sink or bathroom. When we're out we use wipes if there's no wash room or water around. Nung mas maliit si Miguel, wipes muna then cotton balls to make sure nothing's left of the pupu. Dati Baby Company wipes, now I'm using Giggles.

Just disposable diaper for Miguel. Never tried lampin. Minsan brief, kapag nag-nappy change kami and lapit na siya maligo. :)

We use Prokids XL for my son. He makes use of 1 big pack every week. That's about 2k per month. I think I'll try Mamy Poko from 'exclusivelykids,' baka I could save more. :)

That's so true. Hindi pa rin ako nagpapalit ng bottles ni Miguel except for the change in size. Pero yung mga 8oz bottles ni Miguel, even up to now he's almost 1 yr old, yun pa rin ang gamit ko. Sulit din dahil konti lang ang water na gamit mo. Hindi pa mahirap i-assemble after having it sterilized, you don't have to drain a lot of water and be cautious dahil baka mabanlian ka ng kumukulong tubig.

Yup yup. Babies learn and develop skills at their own pace. Kaya kami ni Hubby hindi namin pinipilit na matuto si baby kung ayaw pa niya. We just introduce and show how things are done. We're very thankful nga that our baby is very observant kaya hindi mahirap turuan. Ang siguro late sa kanya is talking. He's 11 months old, about to turn 1 in 2 weeks, pero repeated syllables pa lang kaya niya: dadada, cacaca, gagaga, tatata, etc.

One of the reasons we fired old yaya is we heard her nagtaas ng boses kay baby when our little boy was asking to be carried. Sabi niya "Carry na lang ng carry, puro ka na lang carry. Dapat hindi na-carry, dapat matuto ka na maglakad. Sabi ni Lolo/Lola mo dapat marunong ka na maglakad bago ka mag-birthday!" Of course baby was crying. Kahit hindi pa siya marunong maglakad nun, nakakaintindi na siya ng emotions. We explained to yaya na kami nga na parents we don't pressure our son to do this or that. We let him play, enjoy, learn and discover at his own pace, at his own time. Kahit sabihin ni Lolo or Lola na dapat ganito or ganyan siya, it's a form of encouragement and their just expressing their wishes for their apo. Siyempre sila yung lalong excited and nangunguna to boast about their apo. But we never shout or raise our voice when talking to our baby. At his age, ang psychological need ng baby is to feel secure and loved. 1 year onwards, independence naman. In less than 2 weeks after yaya left, our baby made his first step, alone! Now we can't stop him from walking around! I'm just short of begging him to slowdown!  :)

I'm very blessed kasi kay Hubby mismo nanggaling na kapag narinig niya yung mom niya comparing his son, or tinatakot yung bata na "pity ka naman, iwan ka ni Daddy/Mommy" talagang sasawayin niya yung mom niya. So if in-laws yung problem mo, it's better na si Hubby yung kumausap, say its not healthy. Or give as a gift to your MIL yung Smart Parenting Guide: Yaya Manual, kahit photocopy lang ng section dun about Baby's Milestone Developments. And yes meron din sa Baby Center.


Same here. Enfalac A+ si Aiguel since birth, sayang lang at hindi ako nakapagBF. I would prefer BF pa rin over formula, kaya sa next baby namin hopefully meron na. Thankful naman ako sa Enfalac A+ kasi napaka-advance ni Miguel. Very smart and inquisitive. Above 95th percentile din ang weight and height niya. He's now into Enfapro A+ and will switch to Enfagrow A+ when he turns 1.

Pwedeng mas mahina yung resistensya and mas susceptible sa PC si baby kasi may history ang Dad. And baka mas malakas din ang immune system ng Mom, in addition to taking vitamins (specially vit. C). I'll correct myself din. Ang PC is for babies/children, usually hindi nakakahawa sa adult, except if may history yung adult na nagkaPC na siya before. Pwede kasi mag-recur. Mas nakakahawa ang adult with TB sa bata specially if weak ang immune system, like you said hindi mahilig sa solid food. Nangyari na rin sa akin na I had PC when I was in GS tapos nag-recur (as TB) nung HS. Pero religiously ko ininom yung super daming tablets of antibiotics in a day. Ang lalaki pa nila ang hirap inumin! Thank God clear na before college. Nagpapaka-stress kasi ako dati sa school for grades, awards, etc. 

Yes. I have an office mate who said kailangan ko daw magstock ng maraming feeding bottle kasi rurupok sya sa kaka-sterilize. But i don't experience that kasi electric sterilizer yung gamit ko. Just the right heat and right amount of time. No hassle din to check on it regularly since auto-off naman siya. I bought Farlin electric steam sterilizer, only to find out my Ate sent Avent Microwave Sterilizer. Kaya lang late dumating, 2 months after I gave birth, so hindi ko na nagamit. Stock na lang for next baby or I plan to bring it when we're out of town para hindi bulky.

Enfalac A+ for Miguel.

Hi Mommy Ineng,

Share ko lang. When I was younger I acquired PC, may history din kasi si Dad. E dati mahilig akong humiga sa bed na gamit ni Papa. And yes, kahit mataba pwedeng magka-PC. Symptoms niya, on/off cough and colds, chronic lower back pain, lack of appetite and medyo matamlay. CBC to check for elevated WBC (symptom of infection), Xray to check lungs for mass and skin test to confirm if positive. If sure about having PC, dapat separate yung mga gamit from the rest of the family. Nakakahawa kasi. Like utensils, plates, glass, etc. Avoid stress, sleeping late and piliting makakain ng mga healthy foods. Kailangan din religious sa pag-inom ng mga antibiotics. Mawawala din ito. Basta follow the doctor's instructions.
