Learning about Dental Care for Kids at Tooth Princess Dental Clinic

My latest struggle with our one-year-old was toothbrush time. 😊 Yes, we always fought when I needed to brush her teeth. She cried, ran, and did everything to escape Mommy and the dreaded toothbrush!

Munchkin Mesh Feeder for baby

At 8 months, Baby Tash loves eating fresh solids. Today, we made her taste one of my favorite fruits, Melon! 🍈 Since I’m guessing that Tash is already teething (she bites almost anything now), I decided to use the Munchkin baby mesh feeder we bought at Baby Company a few months ago. I cut the…

Organic Baby Food Jars from Earth’s Best and HiPP Organic

Convinced on how organic baby food is better for my baby than other commercial infant foods, I started my search for organic baby food in the Philippines.  Though I believe preparing home-made baby food is still the best option as it is safer, healthier, more cost-effective, I honestly think there’s nothing wrong to feed her these safe alternatives.
