Review: SaYa Baby Carrier

I do not really know anything about SaYa or any Baby Carriers until I joined Babywearing Philippines group on facebook. Unfortunately, before I had my SaYa Baby Carrier, I already bought another carrier, it was fine with me, but after a few minutes of using it, my back aches already! But I was the one who insisted of buying it, so while my Mother-In-Law and I were in the mall, after a few minutes, nahihilo na ako! KALOKA! I'm not exaggerating. Seriously, nahilo ako ng bongga habang bitbit ang anak ko sa carrier na yun! But I did not show it of course! Ako may gusto nun eh! Hahaha! So after all the strolling we did and got in the car, "hay sa wakas!" was what I felt! Haha

Thank goodness for this group on facebook, Babywearing Philippines, I found out that what I bought was not recommended. Carriers that are narrow based were not recommended. And the carrier I bought doesn't have that much support on the back. So maybe that's why nahilo ako ng bongga while using it. Sayang 500Php! All I see on the group's posts though was the Tula Carrier, and honestly, I find it too expensive for a carrier, so no. I like it yes, but it's just too damn expensive. :(

Tula Baby Carrier
Anyway, one time while we were strolling in Glorietta, I saw that there's a bazaar happening and I pulled my husband with me to check! There I saw this cloth carrier, and I believed this would be recommended (I do not hear much about SaYa on the group, or I just didn't notice). And when I saw Cheska Garcia as the endorser, well yeah, I'll buy this!Heehee I asked my husband to buy it for me as an advanced Mother's Day gift and he said yes! Yey!

Photo from their facebook page

I bought this pink and cream colored SaYa Baby Carrier! Love it! It costs 950Php, it's very affordable among others. :)


It comes with this bag! And an instructional booklet
How was it? It's great! No exaggeration. My back doesn't hurt, I can use both hands (though I don't do it because my imagination is so wild I sometimes think my little munchkin might fall, I know right, so I always hold her back hehe), presko (it doesn't feel hot when wearing it because of it's breathable fabric), cute colors (hehe, I just had to add it). It has pretty nice amount of colors to choose from. I actually wanted the one Cheska Garcia was using on the photo but I guess not available anymore. Actually I don't know, I didn't ask. Hehe ;P


At the nursing station in SM Makati



Those were taken right after we got the SaYa Baby Carrier at SM Makati's Nursing Station! I was just too excited! Hihi! Btw, I love their nursing station at SM Makati! They're clean and smells good! So far, I've gone to 3 nursing stations in malls and by far this is my most favorite, next is at Market! Market! and the last would be the nursing station at SM Aura. SM Aura's nursing station is just too plain. Well hey, at least these malls have nursing stations! I hope all malls would have nursing stations! Well, they must. :)



It is so easy to roam around because of carriers! I love it! Downside though is... our stroller! My sister-in-law gave us a stroller and even a car seat and we only used those for only a few months. :( I guess we could use the stroller when our little munchkin's quite big already. When she's too tired to walk and too heavy to carry. Hehe :)

Maco's 5th Month

It was a different celebration for our little munchkin's 5th month this May...

My husband's eldest sister and her kids went on a vacation in Singapore wherein her husband stays for work. So, there were some days that we stay in their unit since we've got problems with our a/c here at home. It was a Wednesday, Joshua has work that day, and our plan was we'll wake up early so he'll go to work and I'll go home here in Makati. But it did not push through, because Joshua had headache because of the heat that day, and I was not able to wake up early. When I woke up, it was around 8:30am already, and he was cooking some pancakes even with a headache. Btw, thanks hun! :) Hope you're reading this.

So we waited for his headache to subside since he's still supposed to go to work that day's afternoon. Again, it did not happen because he's still having some major headache. I'm not really sure how he's feeling, so I just let him lay in bed, while our little munchkin and I watch TV in the living room.

At around 3 in the afternoon, his headache somehow subsided, and we're ready to go. Yes, Joshua was not able to go to work that day. We all took a bath. We got a cab. We stopped by Market! Market! to buy the ingredients for our spaghetti. We lost track of the time as it was 7:00pm already and we're still in line for the cashier. So right after we paid for the groceries, we hurriedly went out to get in line for the cab. And surprisingly, there's none. And the traffic that day! It was Wednesday, and that damn traffic! WTF. Added to our frustration was when we received a txt message from Joshua's elder sister, saying they're eating already... :( So we did not hurry anymore, we got off the line, and we ate in Sbarro to celebrate our little munchkin's 5th month. At least we had pasta! Heehee. Adding to our sadness was little munchkin's frustration to eat. Haha. She would grab my hand while I was eating, and munch, she might be thinking she's eating, too. IDK. Her Lola kept on telling us to ask her pediatrician if she's allowed to eat solids already, or even juices. We just had our checkup last Saturday, and he said no. I knew it, we just need to hear it from the pediatrician. Heehee

Anyway, it was not how we usually celebrate her 5th month, but it was all good. :)

Here are the photos I took of her the day after.

Mother's Day 2015: My First Mother's Day Celebration

As we all know, last May 10th was Mother's Day, and I've never been excited about it since this year! Well hello, I'm a mom now, so yeah of course, it was my day! I'm one of the many amazing moms out there who owned May 10th! Yaaassss. Heehee

My little awesome family went to the mall on May 9th to somehow celebrate it. I was just teasing my husband, Joshua, that we don't have plans for the special day in my life (lels) since it was my first time to celebrate it. And then, later that afternoon, he told me to take a bath already because we're going out. Picture my excitement here! Hahaha! I wasn't really expecting some cheesy something whatever from him because he's not that type. Though sometimes I wish he's like that, but not all the time, because I'm not that type either. Heehee. Well, sometimes! Hey! I'm a girl. That would be a good excuse, right? Right.

Anyway, as I was saying, the three bears, Joshua, myself, and Maco, went to the mall later that May 9th afternoon. We went to Market! Market! to be specific. While we were still in a cab, I saw these people holding bouquet of flowers, and cakes. I told him "buti pa sila may flowers" and showed him my sad face. HAHA! Honestly, I didn't care that much, I just want to tease him some more. As we entere the mall, I saw this book sale going on and I hurriedly went there to check on the children's books! Picture again my excitement here! Hahaha! Man, I love book sales! I was hoping to find some Dr. Seuss books and yes, of course, I found some! *wink

it was not all by Dr.Seuss, but it has that cat in the hat
logo on the upper right, so it's fine with me
He told me he needed to buy something from Ace Hardware so I told him that Maco and I will just wait by the book sale, because I really wanted to buy some books for my little munchkin. I found some, but I can't buy it yet because I only have 100Php with me so I need to find him asap before other moms/dads found my Dr Seuss books! Hahaha! I tried to call him but he's not answering so I decided to go to Ace Hardware, because I know he'll just be there, because he's mabagal to choose in Ace Hardware like that. As I was approaching Ace Hardware, thank God he answered, and he was not there. Picture my galit face here. Hahaha! So I just waited by the area and when I saw him, he was holding this long stemmed yellow rose. Oh my... I did not expect that at all. Seriously, even when I said the "buti pa sila ek ek" phrase, I did not see that long stemmed yellow rose coming! Because I was always like that to him, and he does not give in. Hahaha! 

hihi <3
After some mall strolling we did, it was almost 9 in the evening already  so we ended up eating at North Park since it's located outside the mall, because Market! Market! is only open until 10 in the evening. So we thought it was better to eat outside, and there's not much restaurants to choose from inside the mall anyway.

It was a simple and nice celebration with my bears and I'm happy! :)

On May 10th we had a simple Mother's Day celebration here at home with the whole fam (minus my eldest sister-in-law's fam since they're in a vacation), we ordered some pizza and chicken, cooked some spaghetti, and of course, we need to have some cake! Another simple yet awesome celebration with the family.

No bragging or anything... I just want to share these gifts I received this Mother's Day... 

SaYa Babywearing Carrier
This was an advanced gift from my husband, a SaYa Babywearing Carrier (I'll talk more about it on another blog post). I've been wanting a carrier for my little munchkin, since everytime we go out and put her on her stroller, she doesn't really stay put. She would always cry and it would always end up us carrying her, stroller carrying air. Also, we had a carrier already, but right after I joined the Babywearing Philippines group on facebook, I found out that what we bought was not recommended, and it's no good for the baby and the mum. Though my husband uses it sometimes, but we use it with a scarf, to support my little munchkin's legs. I have seen some moms do it on the net, so that our old carrier would not be sayang.

Mango Bag
Another advanced gift from Ate Jac, my eldest sister-in-law. I was really surprised and excited when I got this! She told me this bag fits me well since it has no zipper and it's big enough to carry lots of my stuff, including my little munchkin's nappies, extra shirts, wipes and changing pad. Yep, it's that big! Heehee

Soooooo... How was my very first Mother's Day celebration? Awesome! Looking forward to the next Mother's Day! HAHAHA!

EXPOMOM 2015

Since I was pregnant with my little munchkin, I've been wanting to join events that cater to moms-to-be, moms, and such. But unluckily, I haven't joined any since I lack information about such events, and sometimes I would be lazy, other times there would be gathering with the family, and most times I would be late to such events so I was not able to join. Bummer! Good thing these days though I was able to find great mommy blogs out there and was able to find events! Hoping I would be able to join any event this time! :) Esp. now that Mother's Day is fast approaching and I'm pretty sure a lot of events are coming up! 

I've been hearing about Mommy Mundo since I was not yet pregnant with my little munchkin though I didn't know much about it, so expectedly, I didn't care that much. And when I was pregnant already, I think I forgot all about it, I don't know why. But when I stumbled upon her instagram page one time just this May, I thought to myself, Mommy Mundo sounds familiar. Good thing I checked her instagram page and I was able to find events! Yay! One that is coming up is Expo Mom 2015. I haven't been to any Expo Mom events, so I'm pretty excited with this one! Hopefully, fingers crossed, I would be able to join this time!

There's also this thing, #MOMMANIFESTO, you have to download worksheet from the website and do a 15-minute activity, you can do it while your baby is sleeping or busy playing! Again, I hoped I saw it sooner! I'm so willing to join! It started last April 22 pa! :( Click here to know more about Mom Manifesto!

Fellow moms out there, hope to see you at EXPOMOM2015 this coming May 22nd-24th!

Little Munchkin discovers her Feet!

Last April 28th, while I was having my Milo, I let my little munchkin watch some ABC's. I was also a bit busy with my social media accounts on my phone, so I wasn't really watching my little girl that much. Well hey, She was in her crib that time and she's well behaved watching her ABC's so no need to worry mommas! Heehee

I took a glimpse at her and there I saw her reaching for her feet! And she was able to reach it! I was surprised that she was able to do that already! I didn't know! It was my first time to see her that! Or maybe it was her first time to reach for her feet, I'm not really sure. In my surprise, I screamed a little while I was grabbing my phone to take a photo, but I guess it shocked her she cried. Heehee! So yeah, I was not able to take a photo of it so I asked her to please do it again. And yes, my baby's too good she did it again! This time I was able to record a video of it! Yey! Thank you my little munchkin!


Sooo proud of you my little girl! I love you to bits!

Also, this time she always want to sit. Of course she can't sit on her own yet, so there should be a couple of pillows surrounding her, or she would sit on my lap, whatever suits us. Hay anak, mami-miss mo ang nakahiga lagi pag tanda mo! Hahaha!

My Little Munchkin and Munchies

Since the latter part of my little munchkin's 3rd month, we've noticed how she was with food. NO, we don't give her food yet. Just want to clarify that! :) 

Okay, again... What I meant was I think she wanted to eat already! She grabs my hand when she's sitting on my lap and I eat my food. And when she does that, she munches! She looks like she's really eating food! And her stare on food... Ugh! She looks like she really wanted to eat and we feel sorry because she can't eat yet. As what her pedia said, she's really matakaw. Hahaha! Well hello, she sucked on the rotavirus (it was an oral med) her pedia like it was milk, and her doctor told us she was the only baby that did such thing because most babies did not like it! Hahaha! Oh well. I think it's a good thing that she likes to eat! 


with her Papa in Tokyo Tokyo


Grabbing my hand while I was eating!

1 1/2 more months my little darling and you can eat solids already! Patience lang anak! Hahaha! I love you!
