(tried and tested through 9 months)
1. Graco Pack 'n Play
|Silhouette Playard - Rittenhouse|
Purchased it here.
|DS is 15 days old here :)|
We even brought it during our first family holy weekend getaway at Sofitel Hotel.
|DS feels like he never left home ;)|
I like this very much since it's very light and compact than other styles/brands. It's so easy to use and clean. I like it a lot too cause you have option to hold it or hands-free, by simply attaching the straps so I can do other things -- multi-tasking while pumping at the same time. Lovely!
|Image and purchased mine from Breast Pump Deals. |
Amazon has great deal too the last time I checked.
|Given by Je's shobe. Thanks Cherry!|
|Lilymoms Nursing cover|
|There's me at the back ;p|
Family getaway at Sofitel
Purchased it at Rustan's
I also like using Nursingmom nursing cover cause it has an integral wire on top opening so it's easy to see while pumping, especially in the car. But this covers my front and sides only. Nevertheless, great for direct/breastfeeding :)

|Our hotel fridge content during our trip to HK last Feb.|

0% leakage and 0% breakage! Woohoo!

Purchased it at Medela House in New Manila.
|Cycles - the Best!|
I usually purchase it at S&R, Rustan's and Medela House
|Cradle Bottle & Teat Cleanser. |
I like to use this to clean DS' toys instead of soap cause i'm sure it doesn't leave soap residue & no harmful chemicals.
I purchase at Rustan's, Baby section in Landmark Department Store Trinoma and Medela House
|Cradle Toy & Surface Cleaner. I use this to clean my son's playpen and toys.|
I purchase at Rustan's and Rustan's Supermarket Rockwell.
|We purchase it at Rustan's Supermarket or Sesou Shop in Trinoma|
|Philips Analogue Monitor SCD463/10 220v|
She got it in Rustan's.
|Sony 900MHz Baby Monitor Dual Receiver 110v. Bought it from Amazon.|
The Philips baby monitor were borrowed from our friend, Candy. It's a great and easy to use baby monitor. Since Candy just gave birth to her second baby, we had to purchase for our own. Based on our experience, we prefer the Philips more than the Sony. Less hassle to divert to 220v. Nevertheless, we got it cheap from Amazon. Take note of all the electronic stuff you buy outside the country especially in the States.

|Thin (thinnest) Cotton Swabs for my little one's tiny nose :) |

This soap is all natural ingredients so it's easy to melt. I divide it into 3 parts. For DS, the whole bar will last for 3 months. While DH and I it will last for 1.5 to 2 months. Not bad :)
|Tried other bars but this one is by far the best for my baby's sensitive skin :) |
Great for adults too! We love the Golden Honey Oats and Very Oatmeal :)
So glad I discovered it!
I purchase at The Eco Baby Boutique.

when he's 'malikot' ;p
A great gift from DH's supplier :) Thank you!
21. Bumbo Training Chair
|Great for my little one's fragile back ;) Purchased from Amazon.|
22. Fresh Goat's Milk
I started mixing/alternating breastmilk and goat's milk when DS is about 8.5 months...
We discovered that DS is allergic to cow's milk. This saved us! We found out from the supplier that there are several shops in Quezon City area that carries this (so glad we don't have to drive all the way to Laguna). Usually, this will last for 7 days from the time of delivery. Milk must be stored at 4-6°C. So make sure to bring cooler with you when you purchase it. When DS can not finish it, we return immediately in the fridge. Can only be exposed at room temperature within 30 minutes.
