Let's care for our elderly by taking the pledge in #BuildingABakunation 💪
We love our Lolos and Lolas and what better way to show them than making sure they are well, safe, and cared for. Gab did not have the privilege to meet my parents—his Lolo D and Lola P, but I find comfort and joy in the fact that he has them as his guardian angels in heaven. 💙 We loved conversations, cracking jokes, sharing meals, watching our favorite shows together, and playing music and sports together. I feel like it nourished my whole being, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. Ganoon kami mag-bonding noon. Ganoon namin ipinapakita na mahalaga at mahal namin ang isa’t isa. That’s how we took care and looked out for each other. I was brought up well-taken care of by my parents. Alaga ako sa masustansyang pagkain, maayos na bahay at pananamit, magandang edukasyon, at kumpletong bakuna. Ngayong malaki na ako, hindi ko man ito maibalik sa kanila, sisiguraduhin ko na maipagpapatuloy ko ang magandang adbokasiya ng malusog na pangangatawan at pagpapa-bakuna ngayong magulang na rin ako. Join us and take the pledge to support #BuildingABakuNation because we care for our elderly love ones. ✍️ https://form.theasianparent.com/buildingabakunation #BuildingABakuNation #TeamBakuNanay #theAsianparentPH #VIParentsPHRead more
You can breastfeed while you have colds!
That's according to DOH! Hooray! In fact, "when a mother is sick, antibodies are produced to fight infection. Antibodies are secreted in the breast milk and are transferred to the baby during breastfeeding." (source: https://doh.gov.ph/faqs/Can-a-sick-mother-breastfeed-her-baby) Kaya mga mommies, tuloy lang ang pag-breastfeed kay baby kahit kagaya ko na may sipon at ubo ngayon hehe it's even better dahil mas madami tayong antibodies na maipapasa kay baby while doing so. And antibodies na ito ay kagaya ng ingredient sa mga bakuna na tumutulong para labanan ang mga sakit. #TeamBakuNanay #BuildingABakunation #VIParentsPH #breastfeedingRead more
Breastmilk is the best milk you can give your child, most especially during their first 1000 days.
Did you know that only 14.3% are exclusively breastfed here in the Philippines? That's according to the Philippine Statistics Authority in July 19, 2022. In a third world country where poverty is prevalent, that's rather low. Theoretically, breastmilk is the best milk you can give your child, most especially during their first 1000 days. Ito lang talaga dapat ang option ko as Gab's milk. It's not called "liquid gold" for nothing. 😉 May kakaibang magic si breastmilk na tanging sya lang ang kayang magbigay. Another is that it can produce a certain type of antibody, specific to what your child needs at a certain time. It works like this... So kunyari si baby naka latch na sya, ma-ssense ngayon ng breast ni mommy na uy teka parang may signs na sisipunin si bagets ah. Ang gagawin ngayon ng breast ni mommy is to produce antibodies to fight off the "could-have-been" colds ni baby. Ganyan sya kagaling. Kaya kahit mahirap, kahit maraming tumataas ang kilay, kahit maraming nagtatanong kung bakit at kailan ko ba ititigil si Gab sa pag breastfeed dahil malaki na, itutuloy ko lang ito. Kagaya ng palagi kong sinasabi, breastfeeding is a commitment and I am bound to do it for as long as my son wants it. Another way to protect our children is through vaccination. 💉 Take the pledge in Building a Bakunation! 👇 ✍ https://form.theasianparent.com/buildingabakunation #BuildingABakunation #TeamBakuNanay #theAsianparentPH #VIParentsPHRead more
