Here's a baby sling 'how-to' I made just for this group. My baby is 10 mos old. Please note that I don't sell sling. I'm just a happy user. Carriers also got advantages over slings but we'll discuss that next time.

1)First you always fix the 'flower' this is just spreading out the fabric in the ring to rid of twists that can make adjustments difficult. More of this is explained on your sling manual and video.


2)Make sure you know which side of the tail to pull. The upper side to adjust the inner rail and ...


3)the lower side to adjust the outer rail. You need not pull the middle part to make a deeper pocket. I'm making a pouch for a kangaroo carry.


4) Even if I'll do a front facing carry, I still need to fix the sides so the lapels will be neat.



5) And so here's my pouch



JC is already 10 mos and weights 10kg. He's outgrown the kangaroo so now I'll do a type which is also like the kangaroo but with his legs sticking out. This type of carry is not in the manual so I'll call it the "kuyakoy" carry.

6) Now I pull the corresponding railing (or side, or hem line) on the tail fabric to snug JC in place. I'm not carrying JC here. His weight is already inside the pouch, I'm just supporting his bottom with my arm while I'm still adjusting the sling. It's better to this this sitting down if you haven't the knack of it yet.


7) Make sure the bottom fabric is this high to ensure he's seated deep in the pouch.


This Kuyakoy carry can cause the back of baby's knee to have creases so I can't carry him like this for more than 30 mins, or until he starts moving uncomfortably. Danger here: When the baby suddenly stretch his legs out, he might fall off the pouch so you need 1 arm under the baby's arm and to his front for support. Only 1 arm is free. It may look like his knees are already pressed on his shoulder, but no. Only the pocket is deep to keep him secured. We do this kind of carry every morning to get some sun. He's already popular in the neighborhood. When in the mall, I put socks and shoes of course  ;) . Is he comfy? He doesn't complain.


You can use the tail to cover his head in case it starts to rain or if the sun's too hot. In most cases and for your comfort, you can just throw the tail behind your shoulder so you won't feel like Moses or Joseph.


Next time, I'll post about the side carry.

Paraan Para Maiwasan House Pests Sa Bahay
8 Bagay Na Pwedeng Gawin Sa Balat Ng Orange At Lemon

Any suggestions how to rid of mice? My daughter likes them, they're cute daw. Poisoning them is easy but tracing their dead-odor isn't. Kainis if they choose to die in hard to reach places.

Also cockroaches.

On bedbugs, it's the rainy season so I spray the mattress with allercon every 2 days, kinakagat pa rin kids ko. May not as many itchy spots as before but those da*n bugs don't seem to give up. Or maybe it's working slowly in totally ridding those pests. Feedback po.

'How Do I Deal With Puson?'

photo by @TOMFOLDES/ISTOCK

5 mons post partum na ako. I still can't fit into my old clothes. I know exercise is best but as a full time Mom with no Yaya, I've no time to go to the gym. I tried exercising at home at my baby's view (for his entertainment?) but 10 minutes into it, iyak na siya. I tried eating less rice and little or no snacks. I think it worked a bit but I don't think it's adviseable since I'm breastfeeding.
I tried taking morning walks around our block with him on a sling but it hurts my shoulders and maybe it's bad for my back even if I use a carrier. Our road is not flat enough for the stroller and for me to jog.
Pano nga po ba?

My 4 year old never developed a liking for eating. When she was younger, she'd rather play at Jollibee than eat. We tried everything. Competition with cousins on who finishes first, dessert when she eats up fast, deprive her of computer games, TV if she eats slow, praise her if she does a good job, decorte her plate, new kiddie cutleries and plate, etc. Some works but for a very short while.
Her fav is sinigang and fried chicken, but we can't always have that. She should eat what everyone is eating diba? I think meal time is boring for her kasi there are many table rules to follow and she can't join adult conversatins over the table. I stopped pressuring her already because it stresses her more and lose her appetite. She'd purposely drop her fork, swings her legs and finds kicking under the table funny and leaves the table if we're not aware. We already disciplined her from making reasons to leave the table like getting a glass of water or going to the bathroom. She doesn't even have liking for cakes or ice cream. Something wrong with her tastebuds?
Please, ayaw ko na nang pinapagalitan siya over lunch or dinner. Right now I just let her finish at her own pace and not entertain her stories while eating. TV is off and I want her to focus. I don't care anymore if it takes her an hour after everyone has finished as long as she finish her food.
Any suggestions?

Baby Development and Milestones / All About Thumbsucking

My 3 month old just discovered the joy of thumbsucking. How should I deal with this? We don't want to use a pacifier. Or should we? For now I change his mittens 2x/day to make sure it's always clean. Hindi maiiwasan eh.
