    Quote of the Day 036: The Mother

    We all know about a mother’s instincts. That’s how precious moms are. A Mom can tell when something is not right or if something doesn’t feel good. As a first-time mom, there’s that mom guilt when you think you haven’t done something good for the baby. As Little M is so alert, he already fell twice last week from jumping off his playpen to going down the bed. Within those moments, Little M could not say anything but I understand what stage he is right now…he wants to explore and he wants to be independent. What about you? How does this quote apply to you?

    I am a C-section Mama and it’s okay: the Untold Truth

    I am saddened with the fact that C-section (Caesarean) Mamas face a little judgment when natural birth didn’t go as planned. There’s that feeling of being less than a mother. Is this true? One fact is…the stigma is real and this should not even exist. “A good mother isn’t defined by the process of labor or whether she breastfeeds or not. A good mother is defined by the sacrifices and love she gives to her child.”- Unknown It’s 12:10 midnight right now and it’s exactly the same time when Little M was born. Memories start flashing on how my birth story started. I can’t believe it’s almost a year since I…

    A letter to a first-time Mom: the struggle is real

    “When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” As a first-time mom, what questions have you asked after your baby was born? It’s now Month 11, Day 335, Week 47 and 5 days to be exact.  Back in August 2018, I gave birth to a sweet little man. All the mixed emotions that I’ve encountered were truly felt. I just had a baby! Of course, I was up and about ‘coz I made it! It was not that hard as I’ve expected! Hmmmmmmm….. Yes, Mama.  It really isn’t.  But guess…

    Moms share their 20 Baby Must-Haves for baby’s first year

    As first-time Moms, we often ask other people especially our other Mom friends on what are the Top Baby Must-Haves on baby’s first year.

This will allow you to not spend and waste other stuff that you don’t need. So I thought of asking other Moms to share their favorite Baby Must-Haves. In this way, I can have other people’s insights and preferences on what…
