Grand Baby Company Fair 2011

Me and hubby were able to visit the fair last Friday, January 28 and got some big ticket items like crib/playpen and a stroller. I hate that I didn't take more pictures of the event. My hubby won't let me bring my camera, he says my bag was wayy too heavy to begin with. =(

Anyhoo, there was so much free goodies that they gave away, my fave was the swag bag they gave to those who bought P1,000 or more. Too bad I didn't split my receipt, I could have gotten more. =)

Coughing cough seems to be getting worse! I called up my OB doc to ask if there's anything I can do about it. She advised me to have steam inhalation and if that doesn't work she prescribed Carbocisteine 3x a day.

I hope it won't harm the baby, I mean, she wouldn't prescribe anything that would, right?

Cloth Diapers

I must have looked through dozens of sites, reviews, forums and blogs before I finally figured out how modern cloth diapers work. From what I found out there are a number of different types of cloth diapers out there:

Pocket diaper - which is composed of a diaper cover which has a waterproof outer and a stay-dry inner lining and a removable insert. The inner lining of the shell is made with microfleece, suede or bamboo which are all safe to be placed against baby's bottom. The waterproof outer is typically made with PUL (Polyurethane laminate) or TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) and the inserts used to absorb the pee is made of microfiber, bamboo or hemp. The whole thing (shell and insert) is washed when soiled. You have to pull out the insert before putting them in the wash and stuffing the insert back before putting it on the baby.

All-In-One Diapers (AIO) – this is very similar to disposable diapers wherein you just put the whole thing in the wash after use. It consists of the soaker sewed in and it’s all fastened with Velcro or snaps. They are harder to dry but in our weather, line drying them would be easy. Unless if it’s raining. This is the easiest to use in my opinion because you don't have to stuff anything after drying them, you can use them as soon as they're dry.

Enfamama vs. Anmum

Now that i'm pregnant, I've been taking milk meant for pregnant and breastfeeding moms. I did my research, of course, and made the choice down to enfamama and anmum (I think those are the only two in the market right now, where I live anyway). They both possess almost the same amount of nutritional value and the taste of wither one doesn't bother me much because I'm used to drinking milk. My doctor says Enfamama has DHA to help boost brain development and all that.

So, according to the nutritional panels on both milks, Enfamama won me over. Here's the list:

I dub thee...

It's been quite a while since I could get back to blogging. A lot has been happening though, not all good. My MIL just passed away about a month ago so it wasn't all a happy holiday after all. I'll try to be more active here, it helps that I share things on my blog.
