Smart Parenting Breastfeeding Video

I, together with LA and my husband, went to a home store, IDeas for Living, at 2100 Chino Roces Ext., Makati City for a video shoot.

LA and I became a part of Smart Parenting's Breastfeeding video which aims to encourage future moms to choose breast feeding for their baby.

There were three other breastfeeding moms with us during the shoot. I had the opportunity to mingle with other moms and LA had his time to "talk" to other babies.

Everything went well, I had a great time because I learned a lot about breastfeeding.

Here are some of the knowledge that I learned from Ms. Nona (Nanay Nona):

1. Most of the time, moms forget that breastfeeding is NOT only good for their babies. It's also good for themselves. As a breastfeeding mom, I am less prone to breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and osteoporosis!!!

2. The reason why my baby is always sweating, is because I eat a lot of food rich in seasonings.oops! my fault!

3. Breastfeeding moms should be aware of their food intake. We are advised to eat at least 8 servings of fruits and vegetables each day.

4. Our breast milk has antibodies that is very essential for our kid's health. Each teaspoon of breast milk has millions antibodies! It's like having a drugstore right in front of you!haha

5. Breast milk is like the best ointment for your baby's insect bites! It's actually effective even for adult's itchiness. Try it!

6. When feeding, make sure you have a glass of water, a bowl of soup, or a piece of fruit beside you. Breastfeeding can make you really hungry and thirsty.

7. Do not tolerate any pain during breast feeding. A minor pain can lead to something worse. Try changing the position or the latch.

8. Breastfeed up to 4 years of age. This will make your child loyal to you.:)..I hope I can do this...

9. Your breast milk becomes thicker in consistency during feeding. This makes a signal to your baby that it's time to stop drinking milk. (cool huh?)

10. Breast fed baby girls are also less prone to breast cancer. (Yey! I was breastfed too)

There are a lot more things that she shared to us. You can add her on Facebook if you have any questions about breastfeeding.

Thank God I fought for breast feeding. I almost gave up, but learning how great breast milk, I am encouraged to continue breastfeeding until I can and until LA wants to.

Some photos from today's shoot.:)..can't wait to see the video!!

change location. LA's too young for the shot:))

After the shoot, we had a little token for participating. I got a book from Smart Parenting! "150+ fun and creative activities for kids" by Ciara Lazatin Mapa.

I can't wait to use these activities with LA. But for now, It'll be of great help when I teach pre-schoolers!
