My first thought the first time I held my son

“I will do anything to protect him!” I know all moms always think that way. We became paranoid and an “OA mom” the moment we held our own child. Yes, they call me “OA MOM”, which I really don’t care... All the more now that Matteo’s a toddler who’s super active. So when I learned about the webinar of @theasian about “??????? ???? ???? ??????? ??? ???????? ???? ???????????” I made sure to watch it. One thing that struck me in the #TheAsianParentLive webinar with Dr. Ging Zamora M.D. and Dr. Ces Alinea M.D was “inquiries of your child is not an accident because it can be prevented”. So they’ve shared different ways to baby proof our house, also the Heimlich maneuver when your kids choke and first aid tips when someone got bitten by a dog or scratched by a cat. I am grateful for this kind of webinar! Really looking forward for more learnings in the next session. #SanofiActs #FAMHEALTHY #TheAsianParentLive #HomeEmergencies #KidsHealth

Do you wanna know why I let my son be?

I am a believer of vaccines and I have never felt relieved knowing that my son is protected because of the “mini soldiers” he has in his body. That’s why I am confident to let my son goes wherever his feet take him and touch whatever he likes without worrying so much. But now that my son is missing his scheduled immunizarion, I can’t help but worry. I am so glad that I was able to join the first session of #FAMHEALTHY - “??? ????? ??????” for it has given me the assurance that all will go well despite the delay in my son’s vaccines and boosters while we are all in quarantine and that we can still catch up after the ECQ has been lifted. However for those with infants, rotavirus should not be delayed and it is important that it given to your babies before 8months. Thank you @theasianparen , Dr. Geraldin Zamora and Nicole Pereras for hosting this very informative webinar. It is very timely and re-assuring for us moms. I am excited for the next leg of ?????????? session and gain new learning from the experts! #SanofiActs #FAMHEALTHY #TheAsianParentPHLive #WorldImmunicationWeek #VaccinesWork #AllAboutBakuna

When was the first time you were amazed by your child?

My son never failed to amaze me every single day — may it be as simple as how much he loves making his own song based on what he’s seeing/playing to how well he knows the 8 planets in the solar system and the list could go on and on. But I remember the first time I was amazed by him was when he started to learn how to crawl. He was in bed roaming around until he was about to reach the edge of the bed, I immediately told him “Matteo, don’t go to the edge of the bed. You might fall” and I was surprised that he stopped and turned back! Like he understood me. I thought that was just a coincidence but when he did it again and warned him, he turned around again and didn’t go to the edge. Since then, I never had any worries every time he crawls on the bed. He never fell off the bed even once, he knew his limitation at an early age and yes he understood us even before he could speak. It is true when they say that you should not underestimate your child! Amazing possible right?! Another one when he was sick, and I was very anxious because they had to extract blood from him for some tests. He saw how worried I was and he held my face and said “Don’t worry mommy, I will be okay”. Right at that moment, tears fell from my eyes and gave him a tight hug. He kept on saying “I love you mommy. I will be okay”. His reassurance made me feel better. Another amazing possible knowing you have a very compassionate child. Like any other parent, nothing can be more rewarding than seeing your child reach or unlock a milestone. The joy that parents feel in their hearts for each amazing possible is beyond compare. Throughout the years, ?????é ?????? has remained a partner of parents all over the world in nourishing every child. So let’s continue to ??????? ???? ?????’? ????? ????????? and ?? ?????? ?? ???? ????? ??? ????. #NANKIDPH #AmazingPossibles #TheAsianParentPH #TAPVIPMoms
