A Mommy Forum for a Mother-Baby Friendly Philippines

Mommies unite for an afternoon to support and promote breastfeeding

Breastfeeding may be considered a challenging phase of motherhood but the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of breastfeeding for mothers and babies truly make the journey worthwhile. While more and more mothers recognize that breastmilk will always be superior compared to formula milk, there is still a need to spread awareness on its benefits and to encourage people to support breastfeeding.

in response to the global campaign of protecting, promoting, and supporting breastfeeding, World Vision Development Foundation, in partnership with the Department of Health, launched Mother-Baby Friendly Philippines. This two-year project aims to:

1. Support and strengthen the implementation of Executive Order 51 (The Philippine Milk Code of 1986), Republic Act 7600 (The Rooming-ln and Breastfeeding Act of 1992), and Republic Act 10028 (The Expanded Breastfeeding Promotion Act of 2009)

2. Increase awareness and educate hea…


Alaska Nutrition Advocate champions campaign towards “Tamang Tangkad and Bigat”

PANDAN, ANTIQUE - According to the 2015 National Nutrition Survey conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Philippines (FNRI), 1 out of every 3 children in the Philippines aged 5 to 10 is affected by stunted growth or is underweight.
Stunted growth is defined as lack of height for a child’s age. On the other hand, the state of being underweight means a child lacks the proper weight for his or her age. Both these conditions are due to poor nutrition and is prevalent in a third world country such as the Philippines. Stunted growth as well as being underweight are problems that should not be ignored.  If not addressed early, both conditions may lead to lost productivity and nutrition-related diseases later in life.  However, both problems can be addressed with proper nutrition during the developmental stages of a child’s life.
Fully aware of these facts, Alaska Milk Corporation, which is…

According to google, Stress is your body's way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When you sense danger—whether it's real or imagined—the body's defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction or the "stress response." During my 1st few months of pregnancy I've experienced high levels of stress and the only thing I cut off my usual routine is pampering myself.

Pampering myself is a reward I can't seem to resist whenever I've had a long week or I am stressed from work. It has been my guilty pleasure and even when I got pregnant, the more I so often feel the need for pampering. Massage, facials, nailcare, scrubs are but some of the pampering I indulge myself into(besides food offcourse) during the weekend. The only problem I have is it takes so much of my time as I have to travel from one place to the other just to get that all-in pampering package. Good thing I got to visit NAILANDIA ROCKWE…
