Going on a Road Trip with a Baby or Toddler

Image
DISCLAIMER : This is a sponsored post.


It’s sem break already and on the next 2 weeks, we’re going to have a week-long vacation, so is anybody going on a road trip with the kiddos!?
Going on a road trip is really fun, especially if with the whole family (meaning: with the cousins and grandparents)! The place we’ve travelled farthest through land is a 4-hr drive to Liliw, Laguna. It was still kind of short for some, but if with a baby in tow, it’s quite long already. Heehee!
When our Maco was still a baby and we went to Liliw, here are the things we did / we prepared:
Nursery Bag – this contains the little girl’s necessities; wet wipes, diapers, bib, towel, shirts, pants, milk, and nursing cover. This is the bag you carry all the time because you never know when you’ll need any of these.
Plastic Bag – Bring a little plastic bag just so you could throw the diapers that are needed to be thrown (ie: poop alert!), if you’re currently on the road.
Pillow – I bring a small one so my little girl c…

How to Lower Gadget Use on Toddler

Image
I must admit, I used to give my child my phone to let her watch her favorite cartoons just so I could focus more on my work, or whatever it is I'm doing. We also had a burger shop before that needed most of my time.

And then I noticed how my little girl changed her behavior. She doesn't listen anymore, she would cry because she doesn't get what she wants, etc. And because we've been having problems with the shop, I thought maybe this is also a sign that I should stop with it, and focus on my little girl more. And so that's what I did. (Okay, we didn't make a decision over night, we thought about it for quite a time)

Of course that didn't change my little girl in just a snap. But now, she only had 1-2hours max of gadget use. And I'm hoping, in the coming days/weeks it would lessen until no more gadget use.

Alden Richards spreads the love (not the germs) through a new song

Safeguard and the Pambansang Bae team up to remind Filipino to wash their hands

In this year’s Global Handwashing Day celebration, Safeguard has partnered with one of the most prominent personalities in the country today to bring attention to the importance of proper and habitual handwashing. The nation’s leading soap together with the “Pambasang Bae” Alden Richards join forces to educate Filipinos on the importance of handwashing through the power of a song.

Alden himself sang the handwashing song and invites every Filipino to make it a habit to unfailingly wash their hands with Safeguard in these 5 “hugas non-negotiables” -- before “mano”, after using the toilet, before eating, after playing and before bonding. And more importantly, to spread the love and not the germs this holiday season.

If you’ve ever wondered the kind of impact personal hygiene really makes on the spread of germs and general health of the public, consider these sobering statistics gathered from the first Philipp…

What to expect on #NationalPamperingDay by Nail-a-holics

Image
Last October 17th was #NationalPamperingDay from Nail-a-holics... yet again. It was a successful event last year and I believe this year also -because when I got there, there were a lot of people already, and it was just 11:00 in the morning! Woah!



I tagged along my little girl with me just so we could have a mother-daughter bonding. When Maco and I got into Nail-a-holics Market! Market!, even if there were a lot of people, the staff was very accommodating, they were all smiles and would assist you until you get a seat.

Last year, they have 2 choices of what you would want; a manicure, or a stress relieving hand massage. This year, they offered 3 choices which are a relaxing foot massage, a calming foot spa, or a soothing manicure. And yes, whichever service you choose is FREE. Yay!

Another great thing about this event other than the services being free is that it supports World Vision, The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and Save Philippine Seas' added Amaro.
So, what …

#Haenim UV Sterilizer now in the Philippines!

Image
Sterilizers are one of the many must-haves when you're having a baby. Thank goodness, my sister-in-law gifted me one. It was just a regular sterilizer wherein in you plug it in, put on some water somewhere and then turn it on, it was of big help. I remember when I was a kid, what they use are big pans, fill it with water and let it boil -with the bottles inside. It was too much work.

Steam sterilization has been a parenting practice for years, but as much as it is seen to be effective, it has always required much effort, time, and money. Aside from this, the usual drying practices of wiping or air-drying may even invite bacteria back to newly sterilized items; and most conventional steam sterilizers can only fit around six bottles and can only be used for high-grade plastics and metals that are heat resistant.

These are just some parenting concerns that parents can address by getting the best-selling UV Sterilizer in Asia-Pacific and having a #HaenimHome.


Haenim can eliminate 99.…

October 17, 2017 is #NationalPamperingDay!

When it comes to pampering on a national scale, Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa holds the only spot. After introducing the celebration of the National Pampering Day last year, Nailaholics is back at it again this 2017 with an amplified nationwide celebration of relaxation that everyone is looking forward to this October 17.

The National Pampering Day got off to a good start last year where Nailaholics offered free manicure service and a stress relieving hand massage from 10 AM to 12 NN on all their branches nationwide. This year, everyone will be treated to a free service of their choice: a soothing manicure, calming foot spa or a relaxing foot massage.

“We Filipinos are very hardworking in any given aspect of our lives and a nation of energetic and industrious people best deserves real pampering once in a while. This year, as Nailaholics celebrates the 2nd National Pampering Day, we go deeper and dedicate this to everyone and remind them to take it slow, take it easy, zone out and re…
