another note in my FB page
While reading Judays advertorial on Lactum I commented to hubby how sad I was, sagot niya pang toddler yung milk, I said same thing kasi it makes the ‘masa’ believe formula is good, sagot niya ‘ay di ko alam hard core ka na pala’ nyeks explain tuloy ako, no di ako hard core it’s just that sobra sobra sobra sobrang sayang yung tulong na maibibigay niya sa bansa if only she promotes breastfeeding. Di naman niya need yung money, hay if I have it in my power to elevate breastfeeding sa poor I’d do it in a heartbeat. Sa mga may pera kaya na nila mag isip para sa sarili nila.
And just for the record, am not a snooty breastfeeder, I have no issues with mommies who feed their babies formula, most of my friends fed their kids formula, issue ko yung mga hirap sa buhay at wala nang pangkain eh di pa mag breastfeed. For them status ang formula kasi endorsed ng idol nila. I wonder if Juday knows what she threw away 😦
Until now nasa-sad pa din ako when I remember Juday and Lactum! Am not affected kay Gladys or sa iba, kay Juday ako affected kasi hawak niya yung masa eh. Tapos ang impression ko super hands on mom siya and I know she breastfeed/breastfed her son so I know she knows eh… She knows diba? She still chose to take this road… I like her pa naman 😦 super like her talaga.
Mga preggy friends, please know na I am just a text or a message away if you intend to breastfeed. If you wanna give up no problem with me I know it is hard (I myself wanted to give up a LOT of time) but if you need a push or want a buddy’s help I will be there!
I do not think breastfeeding moms are better than formula giving moms ha. But I know baby stand to gain a lot by getting breastmilk.

Reposting this from my Notes in Facebook. It is because of this post that I realized I want to blog and share what I learned/discovered.
When I first encountered babywearing, my first born Kite was already too old for it. I really wanted to babywear, I see the wisdom in it, you get to be so close to your baby yet your hands can be free. Lucky for me the distributors and makers of the baby slings are N@Wies (Abbie & Rissa for Maya Wrap & JenCCTan for Next9). When I got preggy I knew I will attempt babywearing and wish it is as simple as I thought it would be. And it kinda was. It was scary at first but since am in touch nga with the baby carrier gods, it was easy for me to ask for help. Ok success for me meant I was able to use the one of the slings I bought. But I also read and saw reviews of moms loving other kinds of sling, so I know there’s more out there to conquer. I also knew it will be a lifesaver during travels, so prior to our trip last April I gathered enough friends and organized a Babywearing Meet, from a small group it became quite a medium sized group 🙂 We had so much fun learning different kinds of babywearing. The sling was the single most used item in our baggage during our trip.
It was so useful that I am now going to actively talk about it and share my discovery. I know that there are a lot of baby carrier owners who ‘use their carrier. I understand why coz I was kinda scared too at first. I also know some moms just need to be taught, motivated, cajoled as was the case during the 1st babywear meet. That’s why I wrote this entry.
We would like to invite you to join us for the 2nd Babywear Meet on July 2 at Starbucks Fort Bonifacio (the one with the drive thru) 10am-12nn. Walang sponsor so kanya kanyang bili ng kape 🙂
Bring whatever sling, carrier you have, or if you wish to try a certain kind out send Abbie Yabut (Maya Wrap), Jen Tan (Next9) and/or Jenny Ong (sells several diff brands of Slings) a message and ask if they can bring, if you wish to buy PM them din to ask them to bring stocks. This is purely a babywear meet, you need not buy nor use their products, they are just going to guide us and share their knowledge. Other users both experts and newbies will be there too to share thoughts and experience.
What the heck if you do not wish to babywear but wanna talk mommy talk go na din!
Breastfeed, baby care or pregnancy concerns pwede din isama. Remember mommies and daddies ang mga andoon, so we probably have pregger to parents of newborn to teens in the crowd for you to share with.

I’ve always played with the idea of blogging but never got around to making one. I spent so much time reading other people’s blogs and now am ready for my own. I don’t actually have a focus topic in mind so it will be mostly about whatever interests me and also on stuff I learned which I wish to share. Will most probably start by reposting what I have previously written either in Facebook or in N@W (NewlywedsAtWork eGroup).
