Your Health / Re: sagging breasts
« on: March 05, 2010, 01:49:59 pm »
liana's mommy: baka mas madalas mag-latch on ang baby mo sa left side mo? alam ko kasi dapat balanced ang pagbebreastfeed...kung 20 minutes sa left, dapat 20 minutes din sa right. kasi talagang hindi magiging pantay ang dede mo. hehe.

korek, nangangagat din ang anak ko. pero he did that when he was already 9 months old. nung madalas na siya kumain ng kanin at mga cookies. :)

nice question. ito rin ang tanong ko.

i breastfed my son for almost two years (he's turning 2 on april 2)...nagstop lang kami sa breastfeeding sessions namin 2 weeks ago. tingin ko mahina na rin ang milk supply ko kasi hindi naman engorged ang breasts ko, plus there's not much milk dripping experience din. minsan lang pag natutulak ako ng baby ko sa dibdib pag karga ko siya.

napansin ko lang bumalik naman sa dating size yung boobs ko, but i am using a size larger kasi tumaba ako (bale yung likod ko ang malaki...haha). pero minsan napapansin ko rin na parang mas maliit na sya compared dati, o baka naman dahil it lost its elasticity. :(

but still for me, it's just fine that they sag...they are just boobs...i am very much fulfilled when i sustained breastfeeding my son even though i'm a working mom, for nearly 2 years.  ;)

Pamahiin / Re: naniniwala ba kayo sa" lihi"?
« on: March 03, 2010, 11:42:05 am »
Ako, hindi po ako naniniwala... If paglilihi is true then technically saying... hindi pala ako nakaranas nun during my pregnancy!

same here, sis marnz...ako rin walang lihi factor. but i recall craving for pasta (yung pagkain, hindi yung sa ipin ha!  ;D) more often than i used to. mahilig na ako sa pasta eversince, pero sumobra lang addiction ko dun nung preggy ako.

napansin ko lang masyadong sensitive yung pang-amoy ko pero i guess it's brought about by the change in hormones or some scientific explanation...hehe.

ako nga hindi naman naglihi sa maitim pero nung pinanganak ko yung baby ko kulay-kamagong. hehe, bad mommy. kasi dark-skinned daddy niya. :) pero ngayon pumuti na sya...kakulay ko na. :)

1. I learned that I am not the only paranoid parent in the planet. Madami rin palang super-ask for assistance pagdating sa minor "changes" sa babies nila.

2. SP is a very informative virtual place. Marami kang matutunan, and it saves me from buying parenting books. :) Pero hindi ko naman sinasabing wag na kayo magbasa ng book ha.  ;D

3. Mommies are really helpful. Proven naman kahit konti lang nagrereply sa topics ko (kasi konti pa lang yung nasimulan ko...hehe), kasi mas marami yung nagpi-PM kesa sa direktang nagrereply sa thread.

4. You will find a support group in SP. Like most mommies here, I am also a first-time parent. And I am the first mommy sa circle of friends ko, so wala akong mahingian ng advice sa kanila. Dito sa SP, may support group sa kahit anong trouble mo-- breastfeeding, single parents, etc.

5. Lost in translation din ako sa acronyms na ginagamit nila... ;D

6. Napansin ko na karamihan sa username ng mommies dito ay names ng babies nila. :)

Your Kid's Health and Safety / Re: All about Heraclene (dibencozide)
« on: March 03, 2010, 11:15:19 am »
^mama eydz, mas ok kung mag-consult ka muna sa doctor. kasi mas mabuti na yung safe and sure na walang contraindication kung magsabay-sabay ang pinapainom kay baby like heraclene and vitamins.

my son also took heraclene when he was barely a month old. payat kasi siya and he just came from an operation. nag-gain naman ng weight kaya pinastop na.

Baby Development and Milestones / Re: Moms' Most Useless Baby Gear Item
« on: February 26, 2010, 09:16:30 am »
naku, marami din kami nito. not really useless stuff naman, because i believe they won't be available if they don't have any use at all, pero here's ours:

1. walker- i didn't really intend to buy this one since i already made researches prior to purchase, but my mom insisted and she bought one for my son. ayun, 1 month lang ginamit, tinambak na agad.
2. some items in the safety 1st baby kit like medicine dropper, nasal aspirator, little nail files, and digital thermometer- once lang nagamit yung nasal aspirator, the nails files naman are unused, same with the medicine dropper. yung thermometer ang labo gamitin naka-fahrenheit kasi, so iko-convert ko pa to celsius--hassle! but the rest ok naman, nagamit naman lahat.
3. big baby bag- advisable lang kung madalas magtravel. napaka-inconvenient dalhin, kaya bumili na naman kami ng panibago pero maliit lang.
4. frog suit- i bought just one na never talaga ginamit. ayaw kasi ng baby ko may cover ang paa. hehe.

muntik na rin maging "useless" yung mga lampin kasi my son is using disposable diapers. but my tita said i should keep them para pwede gamitin pamunas ng pawis ni baby lalo pag malikot at patakbo-takbo na siya. yun nga ang ginagawa ko ngayon. :)

^thank you, sis ayen and karenwalker for your inputs. hehe. malaking tulong yan.

mrs.bueno: mag-email na lang ako syo, although i am quite hesitant kasi kulang ang datung namin. :D

thanks, mga sisses! sana makatulong pa kayo sa ibang mommies na katulad ko. :)

^thanks again to all those who replied. ngayon lang ako ulit nakapagpost after grueling days of work. hehe.

sis leela: bongga na nga yung wedding mo na yun. P180K for 75 pax? how i wish i also have that amount! hehe.

sa divi na nga rin kami mamimili ng tela. actually wala na akong prob kung invites and gowns kasi si ate ko na daw ang sasagot, gift na niya sa amin yun. nakakastress talaga maghanap ng venue. fully-booked na talaga. we really want to hold our wedding in december, in time rin sa pag-uwi ng brother ko after 6 years of being away from home.

ano bang hotel ang malapit sa mt. carmel, immaculate conception cathedral, or twin hearts in QC? parang wala akong alam na hotel sa QC where we could stay on the eve of our BIG day.

awtss..tinamaan ako doon ah.. Sa manila cathedral kasi ako kinasal last year, actually may nakapgsabi na rin sa akin na lahat nga daw ng kinakasal don e nagkakahiwalay :(..I have no choice kasi, dapat talaga sa malate church ako , e hindi magtugma ang sched ng reception at church kaya napunta kami ng manila cathedral... Sana naman hindi totoo yon.. Pero depende na rin naman yan sa mag asawa LOL! Pinalakas ang loob :(

naku, mommyred, nasa mag-asawa naman yun if they would work things out no matter what. malate church din talaga ang gusto ko kung sa manila kasi yun ang church kung saan kami unang nagsimba ni hubby-to-be...nasa dating stage pa lang kami non.  :D sorry sa moderators kung off-topic. :)

sis ayen: thanks sa contact numbers. :)

^thanks sa mga nagrereply pa rin. :)

sis ayen: may contact details ba kayo nung immaculate concepcion cathedral?

nakakalungkot nga kasi we wanted sa malate church, may reception hall na rin kasi sila. not bad yung rates, pwede na talaga kaso fully-booked na on our target date. :(

mas ok sana kung manila area yung church...kung meron pang ibang makakapagsuggest aside from paco park church, san agustin, manila cathedral...sana yung affordable rates.

thanks! ;)

nakikibasa lang ako..thanks sa mga infos mga sis!
(feeling ikakasal ako!hehe)
beach wedding kaya?mahal ba pag ganon?ganon kasi gusto ko..(sana)

beach wedding din dapat kami, pero bawal pala sa mga roman catholic... i dont know why.. siguro pag mayor magkakasal pwede, im not sure, basta yun ang sabi samin before, bawal na daw yun sa mga r. cATholic..

totoo ba na bawal? san naman daw nasusulat yon? bakit yung garden wedding allowed, pero pag beach hindi? hmmm...

we originally wanted a beach wedding, too. may beach sa hometown ng significant other ko pero hindi kagandahan kaya hindi na lang. hehe.

hindi naman siguro ganon kamahal kung yung beach eh sa province nyo pareho ng hubby mo gagawin. mas ok nga yun, guests could just dress up in hawaiian theme, or simply comfy clothes fit for the venue.

i guess mapapamahal lang because of transpo expenses, that is, kung hindi malapit sa guests at sa ikakasal mismo ang venue. :)

di ko alam kung sang church pa meron yung reception area, but mt, carmel has it..mura lang din, they could also arrange the flowers, pati singers..

mt. carmel church is where my older bro got married. alam ko nga may package sila, pero i have not yet inquired. may nakita kasi ako sa isang website, ang package is around P165K daw. lahat-lahat na yon. i have to doublecheck on that, baka naman mali ang information.

but it's a nice place. i would also consider that. :)

^unica hija: thanks for saying that-- about couples who wed in manila cathedral. sabi nga ng papa ko wag daw don, kasi baka maghiwalay kami. kasi yung kuya ko don kinasal, after 4 years naghiwalay sila ng wife niya.
although sobrang memorable sa amin ng church na yun, sige, hindi na lang dun.
i saw their packages naman, may affordable naman kaya lang sa chapel lang nila. depende naman kasi sa dami ng entourage ang prices at medyo masalimuot nga ang pagpapareserve sa chapel nila. ang daming conditions.

marami akong idi-DIY like souvenirs, pillow para sa rings, invites (courtesy of my friend). for the entourage's attire naman, my friend's mom is a dressmaker kaya sa kanya na ako papagawa.

the biggest problem that i have right now is the reception venue and caterer. open naman kami to having our wedding in the same venue as the reception---like a garden wedding, or church pa rin na merong sariling venue for reception.

isa pa pala yung video/photo coverage. gusto ko kasi mag-avail talaga ng service na ganito. i love photos pa naman.

yung 80 pax naman na guests, estimate lang yun. it could be lesser.

hi sis,

i do wedding organizing...if your interested send me details for personal quotation as low as possible. events_08@yahoo.com or add mo sa friendster acct so you can view the designs. mwah!

sis, i'm afriad baka hindi namin kayanin ang fee mo... we are hoping we could do everything with P100K or less na budget

so far, ito pa lang ang options namin:
-church wedding, considering the ff. churches: malate church, manila cathedral main church or its blessed sacrament chapel, our lady of lourdes parish in tagaytay
-reception venue-- wala pa. kasi mahal lahat ng napagtanungan namin
-we are also open to garden wedding, yung pwedeng dun na rin ang reception sa venue
-80 guests
-either breakfast or lunch time
-table centerpieces will also be our souvenirs, preferrably something edible like a tiny piece of cake or cookie, or fruits

yun pa lang sis. di pa kasi kami nakakapagdiscuss thoroughly ng partner ko.

thanks in advance for whatever assistance you could extend to us. :)
