Travel / Re: kids passports and travel requirements
« on: October 09, 2013, 04:45:01 pm »
I applied for my son's passport when he was 14 months old (1 year and 2 months). Since he's more than a year old already, I had to make an appointment. He was dressed in polo and pants. I brought the following requirements:
a) Certificate of Live Birth of my son from the NSO;
b) Photocopy of my passport (front and back pages), but I brought the original for comparison, just in case; and
c) Affidavit of Support/Consent to Travel executed by me since the father and I aren't married.
Important that the mom personally accompany the child for unmarried parents.
I applied at SM Megamall, on a Saturday. It was a breeze, took us around 30 minutes, I think.

For more details on what I went through and hope it'll help:

The hospital gave my son Enfalac A+ when I couldn't get off my bed to breastfeed. I alternate between breastmilk and his formula milk.

Labor and Child Birth / Re: Twilight vs. epidural anaesthesia

I had epidural anesthesia, and I felt numb from the waist down. I couldn't feel a thing; in fact, I didn't even feel if my baby was going out. I just relied on my ob-gyn who kept encouraging me to push harder. The next thing I knew, my delivery was over. I heard my baby cry. I was awake all the time, even while they were stitching me up, which I didn't feel by the way.

The Medical City offers a pregnancy package which ranges from Php50,000 to Php70,000. You'll be housed at a pregnancy ward, where you'll be with fellow new mothers. A room at the ward is decent, but it's not spacious enough to accommodate many visitors at one time.

I'm a full-time working mom. I'm going back to work next week.

My son had his first Hepa B shot at birth. His second Hepa B shot was given on his first month, together with his BCG. Both vaccines, including my pedia's fee, cost me P2,000.00. This is at The Medical City.

My son is scheduled to receive his 5-in-1 on his second month. My pedia made me choose whether or not I'll let my baby take his Rota on that same day; otherwise, she'll arrange another schedule for his Rota. I was thinking of letting my son have both vaccines in one go; anyway, the Rota is taken orally.

I was given a baby book, and my pedia keeps tab of what vaccines were already administered by making notes on my son's baby book.

I'll update this post as to the cost of my baby's 5-in-1 and Rota.

Update: 5-in-1: Php3,000.  Rotateq: Php2,500.

Update: My son already completed his PCV13 shots. Cost per shot is Php5,000.00. Measles vaccine cost Php1,000.00. He was also given his MMR vaccine which cost Php1,500.00. His flu vaccine was worth Php1,000.00. His chicken pox vaccine was Php2,000.00. His Hepa A vaccine was Php2,200.00

Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, UP Diliman.

I named my son Ken Isaac - Ken, after his dad; Isaac, from the Bible, because he brought laughter in my life the moment I knew of his existence. I know that he will likewise bring laughter  to the people surrounding him.
