Smart Parenting Baby Shower 2016
Mommies these days are so lucky! I, myself included, of course! With all the workshops, seminars, and all here and there - Mommies today would know what to expect good and/or bad, and so we're able to prepare for it!
I am just so excited that I got to be part of this year's Smart Parenting Baby Shower! Nope, I don't have another baby on board yet. Hihi ;) Oh how I wish I was able to join the year I was preggy with my Little Munchkin, but nonetheless, I still learned a LOT from this!
Smart Parenting, together with the new Downy Baby Gentle, the latest innovation in fabric conditioner designed to provide gentle softness and long-lasting mild scent for baby's clothes, created an informative and fun-filled afternoon through engaging activities and relevant discussions held in Discovery Suites, Ortigas. In this event, Smart Parenting experts shared essential information for every mom-to-be as they prepare for the arrival of their new bundle of joy.
Through Smart Parenting's partnership with Downy Baby Gentle, mothers were given first-hand information about the importance of choosing baby-friendly products that are tested by dermatologists and certified safe for baby's sensitive skin.
|Hi Mommies! Downy Baby Gentle has really mild smell, so you don't need to worry! ;)|

It was so nice hearing Bianca's experiences! It made me feel that she's normal din. Well, duh! But despite the fact that her little one's just 5 months and she looks like she didn't give birth, her experiences of being a first time mom is the same as how I felt! What I'm trying to say is that - it's not always rainbows and butterflies (yes, I got it from a song, you guess!). But, when you look at your little one, it would be always rainbows and butterflies!
So for the first time moms out there, prepare for a roller coaster ride of emotions! And also, let your partner read articles, attend seminars about pregnancy and being first time parents, because you will definitely learn a lot. And alsoyou could prepare your partner about this roller coaster ride of emotions at nang hindi siya mawindang! Hahaha!

I am pro-breastfeeding. I'm still breastfeeding my little munchkin now that she's about to turn 16 months on April 13th! And I'm so proud of myself! Heehee
