you dont need bottle warmer. sanayin mo baby mo na hinde warm ang iniinom nya, para kahit nasa labas kayo ng house inumin nya yung milk. or else mahihirapan ka.




kailangan ba talaga naka cap ang newborn?

hahaha hinde naman sis... siguro pag lalabas ng house oo. kase baka madali bunbunan nya.

Post by: ifcastro on November 20, 2012, 05:16:28 pm
Your welcome sis. :)

Concern lang ni hubby ngayon ni hubby baka sa quantity magkulang haha. Kaya sa pinas na lami bilinng mittens and booties, mukhang yun dapat ang marami.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: akiteklea on November 20, 2012, 05:45:43 pm
Mga mommies, now that baby is two weeks, ang pinaka sulit na gamit ni baby is lampin. Yung 2 dozens na binili ko at MIL, sakto lang. Pang all around kasi, lampin ang gamit namin pang kumot, burp cloth, pang punas. Manipis kasi madali labhan at kahit accidentaly matakpan mukha ni baby, hindi siya masusuffocate. 2-3pcs/day ang nagagamit namin. Tapos sayang yung mga booties and caps/ bonnets ni baby,ayaw niya gamitin. We prefered socks over booties kasi mas masikip at hindi madaling matanggal while yung mga caps/ bonnets naman naiinitan siya, napapawisan ang ulo. :)
And tips pala, bawal na ang baby powder sa babies, it triggers asthma kasi sabi ni Pedia.  :)
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: ifcastro on November 20, 2012, 05:50:42 pm
Thanks sis for the update!

Mas magaganda ang lampin dyan sa pinas kaya diyan na ako bibili.

Re:booties may nabasa nga ako na ganyan kaya bumili na din kami ng socks just in case.

Re:powder: sabi din sa class namin bawal daw til 1 year. So miski sa pwet ni baby bawal din? Yun kasi nakikta ko before unti sa dibdib and likod tapos sa pwet nilalagyan din...

Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: akiteklea on November 20, 2012, 06:15:49 pm
^yun ang sabi ni pedia sa amin. As much as possible, no powder talaga kahit sa pwet. Ang reason nya, masyado daw maliit ang particles ng powder na madaling mainhale ng babies na nakaka asthma.  :)
Reg lampin, gamit namin pang kumot ni baby, birds eye yata yun, yung pinaka manipis ng enfant. Tapos ifofold namin pang blanket, minsan pang lagay sa ulo pag nagbbreastfeed. yung pang all around naman yung isa pang kind of lampin from enfant and curity, from divisoria. Ü
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: ifcastro on November 20, 2012, 06:20:25 pm
Tnx for the info sis! Will bear that in mind.

Lampin talaga dapat marami hahaha
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: cerelina on November 20, 2012, 06:28:14 pm
sis even the liquid powder ba bawal din?
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: chocolatepink on November 20, 2012, 06:42:58 pm
Yang lampin ang wala pa ako, okay kaya ang curity na brand? Ano mas maganda birds eye or gauze type?

Thanks!
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: whitebishop on November 20, 2012, 06:52:42 pm
-also buy a good quality breast pump for you para healthy ang breast milk ni mommy. avent is very good and medel. 
-buy hot compress para pag masakit ang breast ni mommy
-buy malunggay capsules para good ang supply ng natural milk ni baby up to 2-3 years
-use lampin over diapers. diapers lang pag lalabas pero pag sa bahay lang lampin lang para, matipid saka hindi maging sakang si baby
-wag na mag stroller, yakapin at kargahin nyo baby nyo hanggang maliit pa kasi pag laki nyan ayaw na nyan magpayakap
-no need for bottle warmer, room temperature lang lagi ang milk para kahit nasaan kayo sanay sya uminom ng milk at room temperature.
-sulit yung sterilizer namin with dryer.
-bili rin kayo ng baunan that keeps the milk frozen during travel.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: akiteklea on November 20, 2012, 07:20:12 pm
^^^not sure about liquid powder. Will ask pedia on babys next check up.
^^hehe.all kinds of lampin binili ko na. I have 6 of both birds eye and gauze type from enfant, then 1 dozen of curity from divisoria. Useful talaga, pero we dont use it as diaper ni baby, pang multi purpose use lang talaga.
^-yup, i have manual avent breast pump, super useful and sulit! But we are planning to buy electric one, medela, para hindi masakit sa kamay!
-yes, use hot compress not just for sore nipples/ breast, pang pa increase din daw ng breastmilk yun.
-wah, di kami gumagamit lampin pa. Meron ako 6pcs cloth diapers, pero super luwang pa kay baby. Maybe on her 3rd month!
-true! Nakakaincrease ng bmilk production ang malunggay. I always have malunggay soup 2x a day. And inom pa rin ng gatas, anmum lacta, pang patulong din.
-buti wala pa ako stroller!
-i have bottle warmer, pero ngayon pinapadaanan lang namin ng hot water from faucet yung refrigirated  bmilk ni baby.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: ifcastro on November 21, 2012, 12:10:45 am
Ot lang: sa exclusive breastfeeding, kelan niyo usually ginagamit yung stored breastmilk, if d kayo nag work, ano mga reasons...

Although bumili na kami ng medela manual breastpump, di lang namin alam kung magstore pa kami ng breastmilk kung sa bahay lang naman ako para kay baby...

And isa pa, exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months, di dapat magintroduce kay baby ng any fluids kahit water di ba.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: akiteklea on November 21, 2012, 08:27:19 am
Yup no water din sabi pedia sa amin. Nagtataka nga mga oldies eh, pilit binibigyan ng water si baby. Sabi ko NO! Kasi breastmilk is good as water na...
I started giving my baby refrigirated/ stored breastmilk nung mag two weeks na siya. (Hindi pa pala ako resume sa work, in 3months pa siguro) Reason is pareho kasi kami ni mommy napupuyat at night, hirap na magalaga kay baby during daytime kahit na may yaya, hands-on kasi kami. So stored milk ang gamit at night/ madaling araw feeding. Nagpupump ako every 2 or 3 hours a day, nakaka 7.5-9 oz ako w/c is just enough for baby sa madaling araw na gising nya. Gising kasi every 2-3 hours pag wee hours, usually 12am, 3am at 5am. ;)
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: whitebishop on November 21, 2012, 12:24:55 pm
having them take water early on is a good practice. kasi pag hindi and nag start sya mag take ng solid foods mahihirapan kayo i introduce ang water sa kanya ang long hours in the toilet will start. ginagamit namin ang water dati to clean our baby's mouth after breastfeeding... drops lang. ^_^


for the frozen breastmilk parang good for 3 days pag refrigerated 24 hours lang. after which consider it expired. also make sure when you are working to do your regular pumps even in the office. otherwise lactation will stop.

Thanks mga sissies!

Follow up question lang kasi, nabasa ko sa WHO, exclusive breastfeeding, no use of bottles, teats... How do you plan to give yung mga express milk niyo to avoid nipple confusion for the first 6 months...

Sorry for OT ha...   Yan na lang naman question ko.

^^may mga nabibiling tsupon that encourages the same kind of sucking pag nagbe breast feed. yun ang bilhin mo para hindi sya manibago pag nag ba bottle feed ka using your own pumped milk of course. may mataas ang IQ ng kids na breastfed according to studies

Thanks mga sissies! Hehe nagbasa na din ako sa WHO site. Advised talaga na no use of bottles and teats at least for 6 months.

Sa wikipedia sabi if needed lang daw gamitin yung expressed milk, pwede using cup or spoon para maavoid yung nipple confusion.

Naalala kopala yung iba gamit syringe.

Hi mga sis. I'm currently 25 weeks pregnant, and I'm about to start shopping sana for baby. Then I learned that there's usually a baby fair daw in sm in january.  Mas sulit ba if I just wait for the fair? I need everything pa since I'm a first-time mom (well except for a breast pump, which I already have). Baka kasi sale pala ang mga playards, bottles, sterilizers, etc during the fair, sayang naman.

Are you also planning to buy mosquito repellent lamp para iwas dengue for baby?

Kasi i read di pwede ang off lotions or any kinds...
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II

I was afraid na Hindi Ko magamit yun new born size clothes I bought from Carter's. when I was was washing them pa Lang worried na Ko na Baka masayang. But no.. Sulit na sulit naman sila since my baby boy came out at 5.14lbs. He is small but just the right size. Almost 3 weeks and he is 6.6lbs na. Those 0-3 months are still very big.

Sulit ang lampin and receiving blankets for me. Mittens I don't use much and I'm able to cut my baby's nails-- ok Lang naman to according sa pedia na. We bought din pala a bassinet since I wanted my baby as in beside our bed when sleeping lalo sa gabi. Yun crib kasi kahit nasa room namin is quite far from the bed kaya ang hirap bantayan ni baby. This bassinet hubby bought at Rustans doubles as rocker and we can even bring sa hotel or any part of our house kaya sulit na rin  :)

madalas yung mga pamahiin yung nagpapahirap sa atin. mas madami nga tayo mabibili pag mas maaga tayo mamimili kesa doon sa malapit na tayo manganak. Una hindi tayo mahiirapan mag shopping pag maaga at hindi tayo mahihirapan. Pangalawa mas makakapag ipon talaga tayo ng gamit ni baby hanggat maaga. Ni isa wala akong sinunod sa mga pamahiin, awa ng Dios okay naman.

As per my ob, there's a logical reason din aside from the superstitious belief why it's better to buy baby things after 7 months. Not to scare any expecting mom, di pa daw kasi considered 80% safe ang pregnancy within the first 6 months. Anything like miscarriage can happen anytime during the 1st & 2nd trimester. Yan din siguro ang sinasabi ng mga elderlies na "baka naudlot". When I was pregnant, I was itching to buy things for baby after 5 months but my ob advised me to wait until the 7th month para sure din daw ang gender ni baby. Ang hirap na maglakad & magshopping at 7 months!  :o

10%-20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage but more than 80% of this happens before the first 12 weeks.

So yes may chance pa rin for spontaneous abortion pero hindi na kasing taas ng % kumpara sa % na mamiscarriage ka on your first 3 months

3 months palang ako preggy, I bought na mustela items... ngayon 21 weeks, halos kumpleto na nga kami. Hinihintay na lang namin ideliver yung mga nursery furniture...

I really plan ahead kasi, nature ko na sya. Super OC ako so hindi ko kaya na 2 months before ako manganak dun palang ako mamimili. Hindi talaga! Sobrang stressed ako nun siguro!

I'm on my 6th month and upto now kahit shopping list wala pa ako! Payo sa akin is to at least have the list ready para pagdating ng 7 months mabilis na. Kwento ng cousin ko, nahirapan na siya mag shop nung 7 mo. siya kasi mabigat na belly. Mag refer ako sa earlier post niyo to build my shopping list lol  ;D

I' m also on my 6th month na and wala pa din ako nailing gamit ng baby ko though I already know her gender. Was also advised not to buy until my 7th month due to superstitious beliefs. Pedro nagtitingin-tingin na din ako ng crib. Will refer din sa list into kasi I have no idea din since 1st baby namin to and wala naman ako nanay to consult since she died when I was only four.

hi mga sis! i have a 22 day old baby as of the moment. i think yung pagbili niyo din ng things ni baby i base niyo din sa month kung kailan siya lalabas. knowing na summer lalabas yung anak ko, hindi ako bumili ng long sleeves na tiesides. but my uncle passed on his 2yo daughter's so nagkaron ako. i barely used it. 2 piraso lang nagamit ko nun nasa hospital kami. even the pajamas, bumili kami ng pang new born, ilang piraso lang din nagamit namin. i didnt buy booties, pero madami akong socks, we use socks sa kanya buong 1 week niya, kaso super init so hindi na namin sinuotan ng socks, pati mittens, ginupitan namin agad ng kuko, wala pang 1 week si baby, di na siya naka mittens. when i shopped for sleeveless, di muna madami binili ko, 6 pcs of new born lang, as well as sa shortsleeves. nito na lang kami nagdagdag kasi shempre tancha muna sa size and growth ni baby. ang dami kong washcloth pero di pa nagagamit, siguro paglaki laki na niya yun magagamit, ang gamit na gamit namin ay yung lampin, we use it sa lahat ng bagay, yung receiving blanket niya gamit na gamit din lalo na nun nasa hospital, 3 yung nakabalot sa kanya nun. hehe. dito naman sa bahay, sinasapin namin pag humihiga sa kama namin,

Post by: super bratinella on April 18, 2013, 01:37:31 pm
Ang pinaka useful na nabili namin is ang breast pump, mittens ni baby I only have 6pcs, by next two weeks hindi na siya nakamittens around 6 weeks ni baby namin trim nails niya, sleeveless na tiesides nya sobrang gamit, may sleeves na tiesides gamit niya sa gabi.

Hindi ko pa nagagamit ang sterilizer na binili namin since breastfeeding ako. Useful ang stroller at carrier niya.

Our princess will be born in the middle of winter so marami kaming binili ng 3-6 months na panglamig. Tapos bumili rin kami ng nappy wipes warmer kasi baka umiyak ng umiyak si baby pag pinunasan. Bath robe, swaddling pod saka outerwear yan din.

Tapos 6-9 months pang summer na.

hello mga sis. kelan ba dapat mamili ng gamit ni baby? 27 weeks na ko sa tuesday at wala pa ko nabibili ni isa. may list na ko ng gamit na kelangan bilhin na dito ko din nakuha sa GT. dami kong nakuhang ideas dito.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: daveigh on June 14, 2013, 11:50:34 am
^ In my POV sis, ok naman na mamili ka na on your 5th month eh, para hindi ka pa masyado pagod. Personally kung 7th month kasi masyado ka nang kagampan wala ka ng masyadong energy sa bigat ng dala mo.

Simulan mo na sa mga clothing like for 0-3months (considering wala kang pamanang damit, ako kasi meron) tapos yung mga ibang items na toiletries ang next. Then last yung pwede mo madecision-an pag malapit na like stroller, playpen.

Hindi ako nagoverbuy ng gamit kasi inintay ko yung binyag ni baby, so marami syang regalo na hindi ko na kelangan bilhin like mga pang-alis, toys, feeding utensils. Those can wait. Hindi mo naman pa dapat ipasyal masyado ang baby on the 1st three months except pedia visits eh. So minimize ka dun. When buying things, in 6's para bulk price pag divisoria ka mamili cheaper na.

Eto naman eh idea lang, you dont have to follow nasa iyo ang huling decision. :)
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: shawliin on June 14, 2013, 01:41:50 pm
salamat sis daveigh. first time mom kasi ako. wala pa si hubby kasi barko work nya kaya ako muna lahat ngayon kasama family ko. yung matatanda kasi lagi sabi wag daw mamili pag wala pang 7mos. eh iniisip ko nga hirap na ko maglakad nun. saka practicality lang din iniisip ko.

salamat sa tips sis. sige yun na muna unahin ko. balak ko kasi this sunday na mamili after ng checkup ko.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: daveigh on June 14, 2013, 02:50:58 pm
^ Ewan ko ba dun sa nagsasabi ng 7th month mamili. Grabe ha, hirap na hirap kaya ako pero ok din kasi exercise. At least pag namimili ako, hindi ako napipilitan bilhin kasi pagod ako. Kakatawa kasi every 30mins i need to rest lang. Yun pa yung time na bumili kami ng bath tub, timba at sipitan ng damit ni baby. hehe.

Yan ang ginawa ko kasi kaya at least alam ko di ako nagoverspend. Installment ang pamimili at nililista ko talaga ang mga nabili ko. ;) Lalo pala at magisa ka lang sis, better na hindi sabay sabay para hindi ka rin mapagod. :)

Kailangan ba talaga ng changing table?

Kailangan ba talaga ng changing table?

sa lampin i use curity.

tie sides are better pag 0 to 3 months. i use onesies pag umaalis lang. never used it much.

kung wala kang nahiram na pang newborn, you may buy 0-3 months, just keep it to counts of 6 (tie sides na sleeveless, with sleeves, manipis na pajama ang para sa akin na dapatmo lang bilhin pag 0-3 months, based on my experience).

just do not overbuy. exciting talaga mamili but as long as you buy the basics, ok lang yan.

changing table? hmm. in my opinion, i can change naman my baby's nappies kahit sa kama namin or in his playpen, so i do not see it as a necessity. but that's just me being practical. :)
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: bitt3rswit on June 16, 2013, 11:46:00 am
^6 pcs each ba sis? I think yung brand na curity since nung bata pa kami meron na! Haha mga bibilhin ko na basics siguro dapat unisex noh? Para next time pwede pa gamitin sa 2nd baby.
Yung playpen mo ba sis yung pack and play? Parang gusto ko kasi ng crib kesa sa pack and play. Dami gamit ng babies. Kaloka!
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: daveigh on June 16, 2013, 12:35:17 pm
^ yes sis 6pcs ang bili ko para di ako mapressure maglaba agad. better sis pag whites muna para nga magamit pa ng susunod tsaka kita agad kung may dumi or insekto.

nagustuhan ko yung pack and play kasi may bassinet na, so medyo mataas at di mahirap abutin si baby. ok din naman crib,basta kung saan ka mas comfortable.

gaya nga ng sabi ko sa earlier post, hindi talaga ako nagbibili lahat. kasi nung binyag ni baby dami niregalo na hindi ko na kinailangang bilhin. if i were you, intayin mo yun. hehe.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: tamarind26 on June 16, 2013, 04:09:53 pm
Our baby naman uses Curity and Enfant lampins. Mas maganda ang bird's eye kesa gauze kasi more absorbent. With regards to sterilizers naman, di naman siya necessity pero convenient if you have one. Consider also the the feeding bottle if kasya sa sterilizer na bibilhin. Dr. Browns yung bottles ni baby kaya we bought the Looney Tunes sterilizer/dryer kasi yun lang ang kasya sa wide neck na medyo mura. 1900 lang from 3200 during last January's baby fair.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: super bratinella on June 17, 2013, 02:13:32 am
Ang pinaka worthy na nabili namin na gamit for baby are :

Lampin
Sando
PJ
Frogsuits
socks
Breastpump

[textspeak!] tiesides, mittens hindi masyado nagamit since summer nung nanganak ako kaya 3rd week pa lang trim ko na nails ni baby kasi sobrang init kahit socks sa gabi lang.

Pagumaalis naman kami

Stroller

Hirap walang stroller nakakangawit..
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: MrsLuluyz on July 30, 2013, 01:00:05 am
bitt3rswit - bumili din ako ng newborn tiesides - 3 sleeveless, 3 short sleeves. hindi ako bumili ng long sleeves dahil summer ako nanganak, but my uncle gave me her daughter's long sleeves. hindi ako bumili ng madami kasi tinancha ko muna yung laki ng baby ko. madali naman bumili after. within the week na nakauwi na kami sa hospital, my mom bought na my son ng 3 months na sleeveless (mga de button, tiesides) kasi mejo malaki son ko. nagamit lang niya yun until lagpas 2 months sya. now na he's 4 months, mga ang 6 months na din gamit niya

i didnt buy bottles before giving birth since i'll be breastfeeding my son. by 6 weeks pa lang din ako nag pump (binigay lang sakin ang pump) binigyan din ako ng MIL ko ng farlin bottles. it worked for my son once in a while pinapainom sya sa bottle pag me errands ako. pero mula ng nakakakita na sya, ayaw na niya. lol i was planning to buy avent bottles around 6 months pag pwede na sya magwater at tiis tiis muna sa farlin for bottle feeding but a need arose na napaaga ang bili ko ng avent natural bottles.

stroller, di ako nagmadali with it. but since palagi kami magmamall ni baby. nakakaloka na i tried na kami lang dalawa, ang hirap ng walang stroller. kakapagod with his weight. buti nakabili na din ako, pero that was around 2-3 months na yata si baby. i was given SaYa and baby carrier na tomy, at first okay sa kanya yung saya, but then biglang ayaw na niya, ayaw din niya mag carrier.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: cloudzy_09 on July 30, 2013, 09:38:50 am
Mga nabili ko kay baby na nasulit ko.

Farlin bottle sterilizer ( matibay siya and mas mura compare sa mga imported brand )
Bottles avent ( brand that my baby like the best i used other brands kasi ayaw niya pag hindi avent)
Onesies ( i like using onesies mas convinient para sa akin pag nag papalit ng nappy)
Curity lampin ( i use this as bib pag nag papa dede ako mas effective siya kasi makapal)
Lots of mittens ( 2-3x a day mo siya papalitan kaya dapat madami ka mittens)
Frog suit
Breast pump
Bottle brush
Bottle soap
Bottle dryer or baonan ng bottle ( i use din yung baonan ng bottle as bottle dryer)
Organic detergent (for mittens and toys na nilalagay niya sa bibig)
Baby wipes
Cotton balls and container ( mas effective siya pang alis ng pupu kaysa sa baby wipes for 1st 3-4 months )
Vandol ( mas madali linisan ang and meconium yung pupu green ni baby pag nilalagyan mo ng vandol after linisan and puwet)
Cotton buds and alcohol ( for the pusod)
Preety socks ( para cute yung booties kasi panget lagi natatangal)
Beddings and comforters
Crib and stroller
Car seat (hindi masyado nagamit)
Night lamp
Classical music cd ( pinapatugtug tuwing umaga)
Organic baby oil ( pang massage kay baby)
Organizer ( lalagyanan lahat ng gamit ni baby seperate yung pang medication, cleaning, milk)
Bath tub and net
Cetaphil ( i use this pang ligo ni baby para kahit hindi masyado mabanlawan ok lang)
Calmoseptine ( for mosquito bite )
Mosquito repellant for new born
Hygine kit ( nail cutter, comb, thermometer)

Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: sofiamarj on July 30, 2013, 12:20:36 pm
Eto mga nabili ko...

feeding bottles- mix feeding kasi ako kay baby.
ainon bottle storage- very useful
bottle and nipple brush

cetaphil (baby's bath time)
babyflo petroleum jelly (very useful, prone kasi sa rashes ang newborn)
70% isopropyl alcohol (para sa pusod)
wipes at diaper
receiving towel- for bath time
changing mat- very useful kasi ginagamit ko 'to sa bed at playpen tuwing mag change ng diaper
receiving blanket- pwede rin ito gamitin na kumot ni baby, yung mga kumot kasi masyado makapal

0-3 months sleeveless tiesides (very useful lalo na pag mainit)
0-3 months tiesides with short sleeves (pag medyo malamig ang panahon)
0-3 months bottom (shorts and pajamas) - hindi ko pa nagagamit kasi naka diaper lang si baby. Medyo mainit pa kasi ang panahon kahit umuulan. Pinapawisan si baby.
mittens and socks- very useful
bib

mosquito net (umbrella shape)- ginagamit sa gabi
playpen- very useful din kasi dito natutulog si baby during day time.

5 months & 2 weeks pa lang ako, so far nag join pa lang ako sa Group Buy ng Cloth Diaper at sa last week of November pang dating nun

hindi ko rin sure kung kayanin ko pang mamili by January, baka mabilis na akong mapagod

ang scenario ko naman ngayun, ang mon-in-law & sis-in-law ko sa US panay-panay ng e-mail na pag nalaman daw namin agad ang gender ni baby inform namin sila agad, kase puro Sale daw pag last quarter sa US at naisip ko baka mag hoard sila dun, okay na rin sa akin yun syempre makakatipid kami ni hubby, need ko nga lang malaman muna kung ano-ano pamimilhin nila bago kami mag shopping dito ni hubby, thankful na rin ako dun syempre, sarap pag 1st apo si baby sa side ni hubby

pero syempre copy & paste ko rin list nyo mga sisses, para ready ng listahan ko pag may sale sa January...yey!  :)

Share ko lang mga sis: na-mention lagi dito yung superstition natin na wag bibili ng gamit until 7months preggy. I'm 7 months now and ang hirap mamili! Haha...
Last week we had a baby shower for my officemate and our manager who is from Sweden told us that mas grabe pa superstition nila! They dont get anything until the baby is born! Grabe. What some of the baby stores do is offer "reservations". You can reserve items you want and pag labas ni baby the items can be paid for and picked up sa store! LOL!
Kakatuwa lang, mas superstitous pa sila sa atin!  ;D

sis pretty_ava, yung nabili ko sa avent yung starter kit nila nasa 3,200. yun yung medyo gold yung color nung bottles. pag yung clear lang talaga 3k ata.

naku buti nalang my mom and my MIL hindi ako binawalan mamili agad. as early as 5 months namili na ko paunti unti ng damit ni baby online. then nung nagsale last time sa MOA dun bumili narin ako halos lahat ng gamit ni baby. ang hirap kasi magahol. and ngayon 33weeks, hirap na ko mag malling. hindi na kaya maglakad ng matagalan. yun din inisip ko kaya namili ako mas maaga kasi baka pag sa last trimester na hindi ko na kayanin.

swaddle blanket – 1 pc??? gini - google ko pa ito para malaman kung ano to, need po ba talaga nito? ---- receiving blankets can be a swaddle too. pag very young pa ang baby, even lampin would work mabilis nga lang matanggal lalo na malikot bata. we even have this, http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Ko7dh8U5EG8/Sn-JYjG0USI/AAAAAAAAAUQ/Yepruyn6VeM/s400/kiddopotamus_swaddle_me_instructions_pink-1.jpg

pero sa totoo lang malapad na tela pwede ng gawing swaddle.

lampin/traditional cloth diapers - 2 doz (anong mas okay bird’s eye or gauze? & what brand?)  --- we have 2 dozens, guaze and bird's eye. as per the brand, curity

bigkis - need ba talaga?? --- for us di useful, umaakyat kasi nagiging bra ng baby :)

Baby Shampoo – iba pa ba talaga shampoo ng baby. Hindi pwede yung Cetaphil/lactacyd blue??? --- pwede din. may 1st born had lactacyd when she was a new born. sa up coming baby nag mustela naman ako, shampoo + body wash. trip ko lang but lactacyd would work fine though.

Diaper Rash Cream – what brand??? Hindi ba need pa ng reseta ng pedia to??? --- neah not really, you can buy your own. drapolene worked for my eldest so using the same brand this time. pero baka di rin effective sayo another brand maybe better.

Boppy pillow??? – gini - google ko pa ito para malaman kung ano, need po ba talaga nito? --- no need. I used the regular pillow when bf-ing. :) pero kung sa tingin mo youll need it and you have extra go buy!

usually pag 1st baby trial and error. eventually ikaw din makaka sabi kung ano ang useful at hindi sa lifestyle nyo

Sis vihua boppy pillow is the big u na pillow, its a nursing pillow I think would be more useful if you're going to be cs. Supposed to help you from feeling ngawit while bfeeding or kapag cs  its supposed to help prevent putting too much pressure sa wound. Boppy is pricey though, meron daw sa sm bloom yung brand php600 lang. If you plan to ebf  you might also want to look at buying a nursing cover meron din ang bloom noon (hindi naman sa im promoting the brand hehe just found na for those two its cheaper than others) =) but like sis pinkpotato said trial and error muna since first baby..

sis pinkpotato & sis bummed, salamat sa mga info

yey! tandaan ko mga sinabi nyo sisses, need pala talga yung swaddle blanket, kase nung pinakita ko kay hubby sabi nya hindi daw makakagalaw si baby & maiinitan, yun pala talaga purpose nun, sa first few days nya need nun  :)

yung bigkis bili na rin ako, baka maghanap mama ko, hehe!

oo nga pala nursing cover, meron na kase ako order sa group buy na nursing top & camisole, hanap na rin ako nursing cover, thanks!

yung boppy pillow papa research ko na lang kay hubby pag naka panganak na ako, sana naman wag ako ma CS

naisip ko rin hindi pa naman need yung pang labas na damit ni baby no? kase ako ayaw ko rin na ilalabas agad si baby sa 1st 2 months nya, sa house lang muna talaga sya pwera na lang pag need nyang pa check-up

hala! sobrang tamad ko, apart from toiletries (which we already have in stock dahil mustela parin naman ang gamit ng 4 yo ko) and the cot, wala pa ako halos nabibili for my little one who is coming soon.... its not because of superstition or anything, its just that nagbakasyon kasi kami then busy ulit sa work... I'm on week 35 na tomorrow! Di bale, next week is my last week at work so I told hubby the first thing we need to do when I'm on maternity leave is shop!!

Thanks for all your lists sisters, very helpful.

Post by: bebeocho on December 06, 2013, 05:53:08 pm
I'm 5 months pregnant now at ayaw din akong pabilhin pa ng gamit ng parents ko. Supportive naman si hubby na bumili earlier. (d cya naniniwala sa pamahiin) Sa ngayon ang binili pa [textspeak!] namin ay avent sterilizer and 2 sets of newborn starter kits (natural bottles). Sale kc dito sa Sg eh sayang ang discount. The rest of the items lalo na mga damit mommy ko na [textspeak!] bibili since mas mura dyan sa manila tutal dyan naman ako manganak. Ang bilhin na [textspeak!] namin [textspeak!] dito ay yung stroller at playpen (kung may makita kme na ok) pag may baby fair.

Sisses question lang po anong tawag dun sa pillow na malaki na kasya si baby? nursing pillow po ba yun?  Shape nya parang neck pillow pero malaki cya at medyo plush. Para saan din po yun?

Safe na rin po bang bumili ng breast pump kahit d pa nanganganak? Plan ko kc after na [textspeak!] sana pag andyan na si baby. Tsaka for breast pumps, electric na po ba agad binili nyo?

Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: vuzhia on December 07, 2013, 01:00:46 am
^sis boppy pillow tawag dun, I'm 29 weeks pa lang kaya hindi pa ako ganun ka expert, pero ako nag order muna online ng manual pump, then pag established ng milk ko at back to work na ako saka ako bibili ng electric breast pump, hindi naman masasayang yung manual kase need naman talaga ang manual pag wala access sa battery or outlet

nahihirapan ako bumili ng bib, ayaw ko kase nung may mga design/print na parang may paint rubber, parang naisip ko ipapamunas ko yun sa mouth ni baby tapos may paint, hanap pa ako

Here's a checklist I consolidated based on my research and general consensus from other moms. I put an * on what I feel are non-essentials, can have a substitute or can be bought later on as the need arises. Hope this helps.

CLOTHING

FEEDING

CHANGING/BATHING

HEALTH

SLEEPING

TRAVEL GEAR

^ if you do intend to use bottles, then strerilizer is a necessity, sis.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: twisted_halo on December 16, 2013, 12:04:42 pm
daveigh I put an * because it may not be a necessity for some moms. I have mom friends who boil or microwave their bottles depending on what type of bottles they have, i.e. glass, BPA, etc.

For me though I will buy one for convenience. :)
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: daveigh on December 16, 2013, 12:11:29 pm
^ Kunsabagay. Totoo, it's convenient. Correct time ang boiling when using a sterilizer. I also include na baby's water while sterilizing kasi, so economical, unlike boiling it sa kalan or electric stove. So if you are on your own, I really suggest buying one. But of course, to each her own. ;)

I do not really recommend microwaving baby bottles though:

@eihsy - dagdagan mo sis yung sleeveless na tiesides ng at least 3pcs. Depende kasi sayo kung how often yung washing ng clothes ng baby.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: daveigh on February 06, 2014, 06:13:07 pm
ang ginawa kong bilang sa damit at bote laging 6pcs. lang. hindi konti para kapusin at linis/laba lagi, pero hindi din masyado madami. i always think na sandali lang yan kay baby kaya di ako nasayangan ng gamit.

if i may add too, yung bath tub buy na the one na pang matagalan. wag yung mga mamahalin at kakaliitan agad kasi matagal na gagamitin yan. sayang pag di na kasya si baby. just buy the sponge na tungtungan ni baby para pag maliit pa sya hindi sya malubog sa tubig. parang ganito:

htto://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41t0gdbYhrL._SX300_.jpg

sa bottle cleaner wag masyadong pricey kasi papalitan nyo yan 4x a yr esp kung sponge ang dulo.

Hi mommies,

I'm in my 19th week but wala pa akong checklist ng mga to buy stuff! Nakakalula sa dami ng kailangan bilhin.  I have a question, which is better: tie-sides or onesies and more or less, how many should we buy ng 0-3 months na size/3-6/6-9/9-12?  We plan to launder daily or every other day if di kaya. TIA!

I mainly used onesies for my newest baby. her ate has the tie sides pa kasi so di na ako bumili pero mas prefer ko ang onesies kasi securely covered ang tummy nya. i bought the 0-3 months from mothercare. the cutting is big so i think matagal tagal pang magagamit.

Dami ko gusto bilin na pang-alis ni baby pero pigil na pigil si hubby kase baka masayang lang dahil mabilis lumaki ang mga babies. 2hrs lang kami nag-ikot sa mall at napagod na ako. What more pa kaya pag mas malaki na tyan ko? Hehe

hi mga sis! question lang, ok kaya ang fleece blanket in the summer months? im due to give birth this march, and may nakita kaming mga fleece hooded blankets for baby which are so affordable din. worry ko lang baka masyadong mainit gamitin ito during the summer months. ano kaya recommended na type ng fabric pag mainit ang weather? thanks!

Post by: vain_kixie on November 11, 2014, 05:50:21 pm
Buy muslin swaddle  blankets instead. Meron akong fleece blanket and i only use it on top of the mat pag tummy time. Its just too hot to cover my baby with, he was born last July. How i wish i bought a lot of muslin swaddle blankets in the states talaga. Hindi ko din type yung cotton flannel ones. I use the flannel ones as bed sheets nalang or pang cover ng stroller when baby is sleeping.

I like the carters swaddling/receiving blankets i bought for 2 for 10 or 12usd. 100% cotton and is good for swaddling too since they measure 30x30 inches.

Diaper, mittens, beanie, onesies or snapsides/tiesides or which ever clothes you prefer, swaddle blanket, rinse and repeat. Also pag uwi a bathtub and other bath essentials. Mabilis kami mag consume ng damit ni baby when he was a newborn kasi they poo and pee frequently so more prone to accidents.

For swaddler's dont use blankets. Scary kasi pag natangal ng baby nyo in the middle of the night pwede macover mukha nya and ma soffocate. Get the Halo Swaddler. Its available online and at mothercare. If mali din wrap nyo it can cause hip dysplasia (not sure bout spelling). If you are dead set on using blankets get 100% cotton which costs around 700php. Wag fleece kasi pwede ma overheat baby mo. Only acceptable material unless you plan on turning your AC 23/7. Halo swaddler costs 1,500. Just get one [textspeak!]. Pag laba i spinner mo agad para konte downtime. It will save you the hassle and the worry that your baby might suffer Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

The diapers grabe maubos. Considering we use washable bamboo inserts during day time and disposable at night. We go thru about 5 to 6 disposable per night. Buy them at 3 to 8 Store in Visayas Ave. (Infant diapers 80pcs cost me only 358php).

We bought swaddlepods and thanking God we did haha! may a+a blankets din kami pero ang hirap din magbalot ng baby na ayaw maswaddle. kaya yung swaddlepod, zipper lang siya so madali siya ilagay at tanggalin din...napakasarap ng tulog niya since sobrang magugulatin.

Pinakasulit na binili namin sakanya, yung rocker niya saka ang co-sleeper bed since small baby siya, now at almost 3 months kasya pa siya sa first years na secure sleeper.

I also got the Halo Sleepsack Swaddle. Got it on an expo so medyo discounted. Super takot din ako sa SIDS kaya bumili talaga ako ng ganyan though mga 2 weeks ko lang siguro nagamit yung swaddle feature na nakapasok yung arms. Gusto ni baby laging kumawala. Since i gave birth last january, we got to use it until the end of february kasi malamig. For me sulit siya kasi at least nabawasan yung takot ko sa SIDS.
For new moms, stock up on cottons and diapers especially if you'll be using disposables. Sa 1st month talaga, minsan more than 10 diapers a day. After that naman, mas konti na especially kapag once a day na lang magpoop si baby.

mga mommies...anyone who used washable/cloth diaper during the first three months of your babies? any feedback? and one thing more...im planning to breastfeed but im not sure kung magkakaroon agad ako ng milk. so, i dont know kung bibili ba ako ng bottles or not. tia sa mga magreresponse.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: bagaholic_chewy on June 18, 2015, 06:56:48 pm
^ sis, member ka na ng Breastfeeding Pinays sa FB? If hindi pa, join ka! For inspiration and encouragement. :)

And me milk ka na nyan pagkapanganak, hindi pa lang as in super lakas na tumutulo talaga or minsan hindi pa yan visible especially sa 1st few days kasi colostrum pa yun, very thick. And super liit lang ng tummy ni baby pa nyan, parang kalamansi pa lang. So pag pina-suck mo sa boobie, and me wiwi output si baby, then meron sya nakukuhang milk from you. :)

I gave birth in SLMC-QC and bawal ang bottles dun. And hindi rin ako bumili ng bottles kasi desidido talaga ako to breastfeed. I bought after a month na yata yun, nung malapit na ako mag-start magpump. And me nagbigay din ng iilang Avent bottles.

Hi mga sis.

Questions:
1. Kailangan na ba agad bumili ng breast pump?
2. ano ang difference between swaddle and receiving balnkets? brand that you recommend?

Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: clariego on June 21, 2015, 12:37:10 pm
Hi,

I have a manual breast pump ready para pag-engorge na yung breasts ko and tulog si baby i can relieve it tas store na lang ng milk sa ref.

Swaddle parang nakaformat na cia ippasok mo na lang si baby, whereas yung receiving blanket  itutupi tupi mo pa..
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: bagaholic_chewy on June 21, 2015, 02:48:41 pm
^^ i already bought breast pump before giving birth kasi naisip ko i'll be pretty busy once the baby arrives. And true enough, medyo madalang ako lumabas especially nung first two months, lalo pa at CS ako.

Though, it's not advisable to pump early, because it could lead to oversupply and worse, mastitis. Ideal time to start pumping is after 6 weeks, once ma-establish na ang milk supply. Ako, i started pumping a little over 5 weeks, kasi kinailangan dumalaw sa patay at ayoko dalhin si baby. So i pumped milk for her, while nasa lamay kami. Pero once or twice lang ako nagpump nun. Started pumping regularly (to build stash) nung after 6 weeks na.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: mslcgrey on June 21, 2015, 11:05:10 pm
I also bought a breast pump before giving birth. I never doubted kasi my ability to produce milk. Nagamit ko siya within a week agad to relieve yung engorgement kasi hindi ako marunong maghand express. Saglit lang naman then sumunod na mga 5 weeks postpartum. Feeling ko naman kasi that time established na yung milk supply ko.

Post by: coyenho on June 25, 2015, 02:02:57 pm

Ako I have Spectra and okay naman ang performance nya. Gamit ko yun kay kuya, 4 years ago. Maayos pa rin and magagamit ko pa rin kay bunso ngayon.

Nakita ko sa IG Bargain Extreme yung name is 2,300 lang siya while mall price is 4999. Medyo hesistant pqa akong bumili kasi not sure if authentic ba yun or not.

^the digital ear thermometer kasi sis I find easier to use for babies than the regular ones. Nahirapan lang ako ulit to pick what to buy because my panganay is already 7yo so parang nanganganay ulit ako ngayon. And will bring complete supplies na rin sa hospital pag manganganak na ako para di na kami issue-han ng kit, less expense rin sa hospital bill. Same hospital, same OB naman ako

Is there anything else I'm missing out on my list? Everytime I go back to malls kasi parang may kulang napapabili tuloy ako nang napapabili hehe

Hi Mommies! Share ko lang yung ginawa namin ni hubby in sorting out and buying things for our baby. I'm currently 33 weeks 4d and we're almost complete na rin sa essentials.

We made a google docs file tapos 2 columns: MUST HAVE-Quantity and then NICE TO HAVE-Quantity. That way, we can see if our budget can still make room for the nice-to-have things na hindi naman talaga super need pa ni baby, specially kung newborn pa.

Here are our must-haves (for mommy and baby combined):
Crib/Cot   1
Crib Mattress    1
Playpen   1
Crib Beddings   2
Crib Mobile   1
Baby Rocker    1
Stroller   1
Car Seat   1
Swaddle   5
Blankets   3
Lampin   4 dozens
Diaper Bag   1
Baby Carrier/Wrap   1
Bottles   8
Bottle Cleaner   1
Bibs   8
Bottle Sterilizer   1
Breast Pump   1
Hooded Towels   2
Washcloths   1 dozen
Baby Bathtub   1
Snap-crotch Onesies   5
Sidesnap/Kimono shirts   10
Pajamas   10
Booties, socks   5 pairs
Cloth Diapers   30 pcs
Breastfeeding Cover   1
Nursing Tops   2
Nursing Bras   2
Waist Binder   1

For the clothes, siyempre lagpas na rin kami sa quantity na nilagay namin (hoarder mom here! haha). We shared the file to everyone invited sa baby shower namin so they can have an idea on what things we need pa. :P

Hope this helps, Mommies!

Di na ako bibili ng pang newborn sizes except for socks, mittens and cap. kasi binigay sa akin ng cousin ko lahat ng tiesides ng baby nya pati newborn pajamas. for clothing, bili ako ng mga ilang pang newborn na pang alis, pero the rest bili na ako ng 6mos and up. madali lang daw kasi lalaki ang baby.

We bought 6-8 sets of newborn clothes (tie sides, pajamas, onesies), (plus 3 sets of mittens, booties, bonnets) then 6-8 din for the 0-3 months. If kasama yung mga bigay, siguro may more than 10 sets na sya for each stage  of life :) Siguro naman pwede na yun. Wala pa ako for 6 months up.

Question,

Til how many months yung binibili niyo? And how many per stage, like for example yung tie sides, how many for NB size and 3 months? :)

We bought at least 3 sets per stage. I skipped the NB sizes na and went ahead with the 0-3 months agad. So we have at least 3 onesies + pants sets ng 0-3, 3-6, 6-9, and 9-12. Didn't bother buying tiesides (although we have a few given nung by friends and relatives )kasi I've read in a thread din na mas convenient na rin ngayon ang short sleeves na onesies and bodysuits (like that of mothercare and carter's).
Saka naisip namin at least double purpose, pang-ails and pang-bahay din yung mga onesies :P

Question lang po mommies, soon-to-be-mom ako. Ask ko lang kung worth it ba bumili ng crib? sa mga existing users ng crib how long nio po ito nagamit? Due to limited space i'm thiking twice kung bibili nito or hindi. Hubby wants to buy but I'm hesitant. Any thoughts?

^soon to be mom din ako. 26th week tomorrow.

Re: crib

Nung una gusto ko sana ng white wooden crib na simple lang nabibili sa local palochina shops. Kasi mura lang, matibay, pwede pa magamit sa next baby. Husband ko naman gusto niya pack and play yung nagiging playpen pag mabigat na ang baby. Mahirap daw kasi itabi yung wooden crib. Gusto niya yung nadadala pwede pag pupunta kami sa bahay ng MIL ko. Naconvince nya ko at pack and play nga ang naplano namin  bilhin.
Dahil madalas ako tumingin sa olx, nakakita ako ng graco pack and play na malapit lang sa bahay namin yung seller. 1,500 lang. We inspected the item at the seller's house. Kelangan lang labhan pero in good condition pa. May diaper changer pa. Wala na nga lang yung mobile. Pero pwede naman bumili. After masetup ng owner, nagusap kami ng husband ko kung ok ba sa amin yung item.
Suplado ang asawa ko pero thrifty din na gaya ko. Sabi niya ok sa kanya since walang sira. Tumawad pa kami at nabili namin ng 1,300.may sinama pang freebie na bassinet at blanket.
marami akong nababasa na ayaw namin mag stay ng baby sa crib kaya na convince ko husband ko na maging practical kami sa item na ito.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: skela96c on January 28, 2016, 11:41:45 am
^^crib use, depende kasi if you plan to co-sleep or not. Kami kasing mag asawa at the onset napagkasunduan namin na we will not co-sleep kaya crib is a must.

Re clothes, i bought 3 sets each of shortsleeves, sleeveless and longsleeves for new born. Ayun, hindi ko nagamit at all yung longsleeves. Hindi rin nagamit yung swaddles. Ayaw ng baby ko ng balot na balot sya. So now at 1.5mos ang ginagamit nya na na kasya sa kanya yung 3-6mos. Parang nagskip kami ng size.

If for some reasons you won't be able to breastfeed and have to bottlefeed, i suggest dont buy the 2oz bottles na. Super sandali lang magagamit, sayang.  I have 9oz bottles agad. Ok lang naman malaki bottle as long as tama naman ang formula qty na ilalagay mo. Just check if the teats are for nb.

One thing din, i use HHN detergent panglaba ng damit ni baby. Matipid gamitin. Bought the 1kg before i gave birth pa (pinanglaba sa mga damit din ni baby), until now meron pa din. Easy to rinse and ok sa kamay dahil mild Ü

We also have atleast two of these items, isa sa bahay, isa sa baby bag na hindi na tinatanggal dun, at minsan isang set din sa kotse: changing pad, nail cutter, nasal aspirator, formula dispenser, wet wipes. Yung baby bag parati din may small bottles of oil, baby bath, alcohol, small pack of cotton buds. Para laging on the go. Hehe.

Baby practically took over our room and car. As in. Haha

^^^ dilemma ko din before yung crib.  I wanted to buy a crib (for aesthetics), a cosleeper (for convenience), and a pack n play. lahat gusto ko!  We ended up buying a pack n play with napper/changer and my baby (now 12 weeks old) still sleeps at the napper part.  very helpful din yung changer.   

I have friends who lent me a bunch of sleeping gears like the summer co-sleeper na nakapatong sa bed, a fisher price rocker/napper, and inclined sleep positioner.  we used the co-sleeper for a week then realized masikip sa bed.  baby loves the rocker/napper and still naps there during the day.  the inclined sleep positioner - I use this after midnight feedings when I'm too sleepy to carry the baby after burping.

re: crib

ang hirap diba? lalo pa ngayon you'll never know what works for the baby. siguro kung until 2years old nya nagagamit niya pa rin then ok ako bumili, pero reading some of mommies here di naman madalas magamit. Let's see, i might consider the pack play para if ever di na need benta na lang

We will be using my niece's white wooden crib. And then sa house naman ng parents ko, we will use my nephew's pack and play. Hehe. Ako personally ayoko din na sa bed namin matutulog si baby, siguro sa first few weeks/months keri lang but I want her to sleep alone kasi gusto namin may strict sleep schedule sya. Tsaka malikot kami ni husband matulog kawawa si baby if ever.

Hello!

Little one is almost 8months now and here's what I found very useful, I've also added notes on some items:
(thanks @pandoralover, I'm using post as my checklist)

Crib & crib mattress - 1 - we bought one that may be converted to a daybed, we placed it literally beside the side of the bed that I sleep on.

Crib Beddings - 3 sets - bolster cases, mattress cover and pillow cover (we have not used the pillow cover and pillows in the first months due to SIDS)

Mattress protector - 2 - Bought these at mercury drug is a quilted waterproof sheet, cotton on top sheet I lay before covering the mattress, this is to avoid pee or any liquid to penetrate to the mattress so I would just have to change the protector and mattress cover in case baby accidentally peed or vomited or any liquid spill on the mattress.

Pack and play - we love to travel thus this one is very useful

Crib Mobile  - 1

Baby Rocker    1

Stroller   1

Car Seat   1 (Very very very important!)

Swaddle blankets   5

Blankets   3 - we did not use this until later to avoid unnecessary accidents from happening since newborns cannot lift even the smalllest object, to avoid suffocation etc.

Lampin   2 dozens - I got a few more hand me downs - there's this shop where we buy lampin about 40% lesser than the mall price, it's hello baby garments in Bel-Air Makati. A dozen of curity diaper is priced at P300+ pesos only.

They also have a lot of baby clothes at a good price. They are all Philippine made but to be exported. The cotton of is of good quality, not banketa quality at all, very far from it.

Diaper Bag   1 - we are using the big bag with lots of pockets from Beabi, hubby carries it like it's just his bag and it does not look like a diaper bag at all. Been using it since baby was born, no signs of wear and tear just yet. Inexpensive but has a good quality.

Baby Carrier/Wrap   1

Bottles   14 - hoarding bottles during sales in Lazada, I got Avent bottles at 700++ (2 pcs 9 oz) that you can buy at P1k++ at the malls.

Bottle Cleaner   1

Bibs -  10 - we got a lot but we have not used it that much. Baby hates it.

Bottle Sterilizer   1 - Bought also during a Lazada sale - Farlin - 1,600++ regular price and I got it for 1,400

Breast Pump   1 - manual

Hooded Towels   2 - bought also at Hello Baby

Washcloths   - 1 dozen

Baby Bathtub   1 - hand me down from cousin - Baby 1st

Onesies  -  from Carter's and we bought also at Hello Baby

Sidesnap/Kimono shirts  - bought also at Hello Baby very useful during the first few months

Pajamas   - we're pairing this with the onesies, to avoid insect bites

Booties, socks  - 5 pairs

Breastfeeding strap - I bought a strap that you can attach to any cloth like lampin, scarf, baby blankets etc thus I did not have to buy the covers, easy to bring and I can change and laundry everything I use without the need to buy another breastfeeding cover to use as a replacement while the other one is at the laundry bin.

Nursing Tops   - I didnt actially bought any nursing tops, I always just used button up shirts.

Nursing Bras   5

Waist Binder   1

Walker - 1 - hand-me-down from a cousin too

High Chair - we bought a one that is convertible to a kiddie chair and table, the material is just like that of the Little Tykes

I hope I did not miss anything, but in case I will just have to edit.

Yup yup! Glad I saw their pub mat online. :) Hubby and I went there kanina as today is for SM advantage/BDO rewards card/and Mom Card holders, and we were able to take advantage of awesome deals talaga!

We got good deals on Mammy Poko newborn diapers (we're CD-ing but siguro not for the first few days sa hospital), Avent bottle sets, Medela breast pump accessories, and Fisher Price and Chicco toys. Sobrang sulit ang punta, mga mommies! I suggest you go there early kasi medyo nakakapagod when it gets crowded. Sobrang daming preggies and mommies with babies :P

I checked on my son's old clothes last weekend and i think I need not buy tie sides as I have lots already and baby is just going to use them for a month or so. Sayang din.  The receiving blankets and other baby stuffs, I think I already gave them away so need to buy again. Just two or three receiving blankets will do since I'm due April. 
I'm still contemplating on what brand of breastpump to buy.  I used the single electric Avent breastpump on my first but I gave it away to my cousin when my son self weaned.  Now need to buy again.
Feb. 8 is a holiday so I think I will shop and complete my baby essentials (hopefully).  Tummy is getting bigger and heavier already.  So by holy week during the long vacation, all I need to do is wash all baby's clothes and needs, sort and pack my ang baby's hospital bag.
Next is beauty rest while waiting for baby's arrival. EDD is April 9.

Hi Mommy ghye! Are you a working mom? If yes, may I recommend Medela Freestyle Breastpump (double electric) or Spectra S1 or S2 Hospital Grade double electric breast pump din. Both brands can be used quietly sa work, and can be used multiple times in a day. :) My sis-in-law swears by her Medela pump, pero I've heard several good reviews rin on the Spectra ones, and cheaper pa. :)
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: ghye on February 03, 2016, 11:55:57 am
^yes po, I'm a working mom so I really need a breast pump and I'm considering Medela as I saw lots of good reviews.  I'm comparing also prices of Medela and Avent double electric for I will be ordering them from UK.  Avent is much much cheaper there.

Hello sissies,

I'm already planning to buy baby stuff. Will actually purchase them on my 30th week which is a month away from now.

I plan to exclusively BF and I'm going to be a stay home mom as I have already resigned from work. I just wanna know if I still need to buy an electric pump (keen on buying Medela) and/or manual pump. 😀

What happens also if full and milk supply ko and ayaw pa naman mag feed ni baby?

Thank you mommies! 😀

Post by: fionaapple on February 03, 2016, 03:29:05 pm
^kami naman maaga namili. 24th week bumili kami ng second hand Graco pack and play crib. 1,300 ko lang nabili. tinawaran ko pa from 1,500 na price sa olx.ph.

26th week pa lang namili na kami ng other baby things sa Grand Baby Fair.  Ang dami namin nabili ng husband ko for our baby. almost complete na kami sa baby things, except for the car seat, stroller, binder/girdle (to be bought sa department store), breast pump (later pa ko bibili after i have established my supply), cooler box, ice packs and toiletries (i plan to use Human Heart Nature baby care products and detergents for my child).

Naka 12k ako sa baby fair, pero almost complete na. di na kami bumili ng carrier kasi my cousin gave me a SaYa stretchy wrap. sa newborn clothes like white tiesides and pajamas, binigyan niya rin ako kaya di na kami bumili nito.

gustong gusto ko yung mga Carter's na onesies around 8 ata binili ko. Nakabili rin ako ng:

2 Next9 nursing covers
1 rubber changing mat
1 generic (non-branded) wearable blanket for only 150 *(compared sa Halo sleepsack).
1 pink terno t-shirt and shorts set
2 sets of comforters and pillow sets for only 1,000
1 set baby pillow case and bolster cases for only 70 pesos
3 swaddle/receiving blankets
2 hooded towels
around 12 washcloths
12 Enfant white gauze lampin
12 colored Enfant gauze lampin
3 pairs mittens
3 caps
6 pairs socks
1 Pigeon nasal aspirator (well-recommended ng friend ko)
Pigeon disposable breast pads (36 pcs in a pack)

Goon (japanese brand) disposable diapers 48 pcs in a pack (*will use Next9 cloth diapers pag tapos na sa newborn stage).

4 pieces na Pigeon bottles with peristaltic nipples. Ang mahal pero well-recommended kaya bumili ako kahit 4 lang muna kasi malaki yung discount (well-recommended)

1 Looney Tunes sterilizer+dryer for only 1,400 (well-recommended din ng friend ko, original price niya ay 3,000)

1 Bath tub for only 250
1 bath net for only 175

yan lang yung mga naaalala kong items, pero basta marami yun. sobrang happy.
tapos may swag bag pa na maraming laman.

Sis sa babyfair ka nakabili ng generic sleepsack? Huhuhu anong name ng stall/store? Meron kayang big sizes pang toddlers? Xlarge na kasi size ng toddler ko sa halo eh i only have 1 palang. I use it so he wont be able to jump out of his crib lol

Nagenjoy din ako sa swag bag. Dapat ata pinaghiwahiwalay ko yung binili ko para naka more than 1 receipt ako ng 3500 para madaming swag bag... Hahahahaha... Pwede ba yun? Sayang! Lol

Gusto ko sana bumili ng swing, wala naman sa fair... Lungkot! San ba nkakabili ng murang swing ng fisherprice na battery operated or electric or mamaroo? Meron ako nakita ol, kaya lang baka may other option pa.

Dami pa kulang sa checklist ko but i think next month na ko magresume ng shopping para diretso nesting, linis linis and laba laba haha

Hi sissies! hubby and I will buy our little bear's (that's how we call out baby) essentials on my 7th month pa. I'm 6 months and 1 week preggy now and we followed the pamahiin of his mom and my lola not to buy baby things before I hit my 7th month. Though my mom said that I could buy some things na pero if it will be kept too long before I deliver the baby kaya baka maluma agad. :) I'm super excited and OC din kaya kating kati na ko to buy, least that I can do is to prepare my checklist. :)

More Tips:

When buying baby stuffs, know to differentiate essentials from nice to haves. If budget is limited, you could do away with the following items, or you can always find or create your own alternatives:
a. Walkers
b. Baby carriers
c. Baby gym
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: fionaapple on February 10, 2016, 11:17:31 am
^took those items out of our list before going to the baby fair pa. :) essentials lang ang plano ko bilhin. ayoko kasi ng kalat and unnecessary expense.

with respect sa walker, ang balak ko bilhin yung andador--yung native na walker na gawa sa kawayan...pero matagal pa naman yun.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: ghye on February 15, 2016, 10:58:59 am
^my first son's walker is still good and to be used by the next baby.  Also we have a pink high chair that was used by my niece 6 years ago when she was staying with me.  It's a pink one but still as good as new until now.  My son used it also and again to be used by the incoming baby.  I don't care if it's pink as long as it serves the purpose and it's for indoor use only lang naman.  For the crib, we still have the wooden crib used by my niece and nephews then was turned over to me when I was expecting my son 4 yrs ago and to be used again this time.  I'm just lucky that the expensive items are all still preserved well so a big cut on expenses.

^after weeks of hunting for a car seat, nakabili na rin kahapon. yung for newborn to toddler. Baby 1st ang brand. we bought it for 3,600 sa Robinsons Metro East. about sa stroller, napag desisyunan namin na saka na lang bumili kapag nakapanganak na at malaki na ang baby. mas gusto kasi ng husband ko yung umbrella stroller para hindi masyadong bulky.

Namili kami kanina ng konting baby clothes at worth 2k plus na agad nagastos ko. My goodness! Super gastos pala talaga magkababy. Btw, 6mos preggy pala ako at first time mom. Yun 2k plus na yun super kulang pa ha. Ang mga nabili ko pa lang 3 tie sides na sleeveless, 3 tie sides with sleeves, 3 pajamas, a couple of mittens, booties, bonnets, bib and 1 receiving blanket. At take note nakasale pa yung iba dyan. Wala pa ko ibang necessities like crib, stroller, baby bath and grooming essentials, feeding bottles, yung iba pang damit na need ng baby at linens, etc.

Yung mga binili ko yun lang kasi naalala ko na needs ng baby. Wala pa kasi akong list. May alam ba kayong website na merong baby essentails list? Yung mga nakikita ko kasi iba-iba nasa list. Nakakaoverwhelm! Hindi ko na alam kung alin dapat ko sundin.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: shanna on February 15, 2016, 09:12:16 pm
Hi Mommy bk!!

Ito po [textspeak!] list ko,.(na copy ko lang din from Amanda's list of Glam o'mamas.)

APPAREL

12 tie-sides (So practical for newborns! You don’t have to worry about pulling shirts over their frail little heads. With tie-sides, you can even dress them when they’re asleep.)
6 short-sleeved shirts (The ones that open from the front are best.)
4-6 pajama sets/frog suits (For air-conditioned places, these seem essential. Newborns are still adjusting to outside temperatures and like to feel snug and warm. Get the kind that let you open up around the nappy area so you can change baby’s diaper easily during those late-night/early-morning changes.)
4-6 receiving blankets
6 pairs mittens
4 caps
4-6 pairs socks

DIAPERS (Unless you’re going to use cloth diapers or “lampin” right away, you can defer cloth diapers for later. If using disposables, get the newborn size first pero wag maghoard ng madami since hiyangan din kasi ang diaper kay baby)

NURSERY LINEN
4-6 fitted sheets (For tropical countries like the Philippines, 300 thread count cotton is comfy. Change and wash linens every three days or so for hygiene reasons)
3 crib blankets (Get 100% cotton. Jersey or flannel are also nice and soft.)
2 crib bumpers (In the beginning, baby will appreciate sleeping in a snug place, like in your bed or in a cozy bassinet. So you might buy the bumpers gradually.)
2 pillows and 4 pillow cases
2 bolsters and cases


BATHING/GROOMING
2 hooded towels
4 wash cloths
sponge/mitt
bath tub
basin
dipper
bathing support net
nail cutter
rubber bath mat
organizer tray
3 canisters/jar sets (for your cotton buds, cotton balls, and other small essentials.

TOILETRIES
baby soap/liquid bath gel
baby shampoo
baby oil (For cleaning ears, when baby’s a bit bigger and ready for tub baths)
baby alcohol (For cleaning the stump from the umbilical cord. You’ll need a cotton swab for this.)
baby cologne
mosquito repellant
cotton balls
cotton ear buds
cotton nose buds (optional)
diaper rash ointment

APOTHECARY
digital thermometer
nasal aspirator

BREASTFEEDING
breast pump (optional)
nursing bra
nursing pads
nipple cream (A must for the first few weeks of breastfeeding)
breastfeeding pillow (optional)
breastfeeding canopy (optional)
storage bottles or bags



BOTTLEFEEDING (if you’re expressing breastmilk, or mixed feeding/formula feeding. Go with BPA-free bottles, if bottle-feeding. If you’re breastfeeding, you won’t use these right away. Still, it’s wise to have them on hand.)
6-8 4 oz. bottles
6-8 8 oz. bottles
bottle brush
nipple brush
sterilizing tongs
sterilizer
bottle rack
2 milk containers
(Instead of a bottle warmer – which costs you more on electricity – you can just do the old-fashioned heat up some hot water, put in a mug, and pop the baby bottle in til warm.)

NURSERY FURNITURE (optional if you co-sleep or bed-share, of course)
mattress
crib
chest of drawers
changing table (If you have space for a nursery, a chest of drawers that’s also a changing table is wise.)
baby monitor (optional, if you and baby sleep in separate quarters)
diaper pail (if you’re using cloth nappies.)
diaper stacker (optional)
clothes hamper (optional)
mosquito net

TRAVEL
diaper bag (Check out Glamomamas’s eco-diaper bag recos here)
changing pad
baby wipes (These don’t have to be pricey, but know if your baby’s skin responds well to certain brands. Go as natural as possible.)
insulated bottle keeper
carrier/bassinet
stroller
stroller pad(nice to have)

Mula nung 6 months pregnant ako sinimulan ko paunti unti ang bili.pag punta sa mall or grocery, I made sure na may mabili ako kahit isa sa listahan ko kaya di gaanong mabigat sa akin ngayong malapit na ako manganak. Tapos hintay hintay din ng pagsale sa mga malls para mas makamura. ;D ;D ;D ;D

Ako naman i used diaper. Kasi 10x a day ata ng poop ng newborn and i dont want laundry to pile up. Tapos damit din ang bilis mag palit because of spit ups etc. Mas mabilis magtapon ng diapers for me. Depende sayo i guess. But now toddler na baby ko and he poops 2x a day i dont mind using cloth diapers.

The Babybjorn is in my Amazon wishlist! Still thinking about it cause it's a bit pricey though it has raving reviews. What I like is that it has three angles and can still be used by toddlers, as seats nga lang.

I'd like to have bouncers para maka rest/nap si baby and my arms when we visit our parents house or go out of town. 😀

I've decided na kasi that the pack and play I'm getting is the basic one lang. Before kasi I wanted the one with the portable napper and changer but since hanggang ilang pounds lang, sayang lang.

Fionapple, i was gifted with 1 and it was not really that useful. I was able to use it ng mga till 4 months old pero not so much din kasi most of the time pag awake si baby we do tummy time or nasa crib siya. Hindi din siya nakakatulog dyan. I doubt if my son will stay put now that he is over 1. May high chair din ako so pag eating time doon siya sa high chair. He knows how to sleep on his own since 6 months old so i never really needed a rocker.

Fionapple, i was gifted with 1 and it was not really that useful. I was able to use it ng mga till 4 months old pero not so much din kasi most of the time pag awake si baby we do tummy time or nasa crib siya. Hindi din siya nakakatulog dyan. I doubt if my son will stay put now that he is over 1. May high chair din ako so pag eating time doon siya sa high chair. He knows how to sleep on his own since 6 months old so i never really needed a rocker.

^thank you vain_kixie.:) i already have a Graco Pack n Play crib for my upcoming baby girl (31 weeks pregnant). since I will be working after my maternity leave, I can't help but wonder where my baby will sleep when she is with her yaya downstairs. 

^thank you simang. halos complete na ang baby needs ko. di na ako pupunta sa baby fair. happy ako nauna ko na ginawa ang pagpunta sa baby fair (26 weeks). kasi maaga ko nang maaasikaso ang hospital bags namin. i have packed my own stuff, including toiletries. di ko pa tapos yung baby bag kasi need labhan lahat ng gamit niya. tapos last ko na gagawin yung sa husband ko.

i also bough pack n play kasi marami naman feedback sa akin personally and through research na sulit sya. Also got the basic one lang since pwede na rin naman sya idiaper change and nap dun sa mababaw na bedding..

at 33 weeks haven't packed my hosp bag kasi nilabhan ko pa stuff ni baby na dadalhin medyo kakapagod hehe..

thanks sa cloth diapering suggestions pero yun din kasi naisip ko malamang windang pa ako galing hospital nun and weak dahil sa panganganak so siguro disposables muna gamitin ko..then kapag kaya na, cloth diaper na or kapag nasa bahay lang. May learning curve kasi yata and at that rate na halos 10x a day si baby poop, kulang na kulang pa yun CD's na nabili ko :<

^gusto ko din gumamit ng cloth diapers, may mga niregalo sa akin during my baby shower. 5 pcs pa lang. naisip ko magpalakas muna ako ng katawan at i-establish muna yung breastmilk supply ko bago ako mag cloth diapers.

^I think I'm done with my baby checklist.  Started prepping them also and just had my first hospital bag packed.  For the CD's, baby's tend to poop a lot during their first days so I used CD's with my first born after we got discharged.  Good thing my mother in law came and she does the laundry every day.  After a month, since my MIL left and we still didn't have a house help, I did the laundry every other day. Prior to that it was my husband who did the laundry.  Other reason why I really I'm into cloth diapering is after what happened during typhoon Ondoy, I vowed to lessen in any way I can my contribution to waste disposal.  I used more that two dozens of CD's before.  CD's are what I give as gifts to expecting moms or to newborn babies.

Tapos na ako mag backread. Thanks sa tips sisses! Gusto ko rin mag CD, pero malamang CS ako so pag nakapag adjust nalang siguro ako dahil mahihirapan ako for sure maglaba. Pero bibili pa rin ako ng CD's kasi ang cucute ng designs.

Tanong lang mga sis, malaki ba difference ng lampin saka tide sides sa divisoria compared sa malls? Medyo hirap na kasi ako lumakad, 20 mins na tayo or lakad lang pagod na ako. Mag 5 months palang ako, what more sa mga succeeding months pa. Kung maliit lang kasi difference baka sa mall nalang kami bumili, lalo pa ang init na rin ng panahon ngayon.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: littlekinselle on March 11, 2016, 03:41:25 pm
^^ muslin  towels sis nasa 3-4 price 1800 ata online ko nakita. 😄

^ iniisip ko din mag divisoria kaso baka mapagod lang ako lalo kasi puro lakad yun for sure sa mall naman kahit mejo mahal  less hassle saken. Pinipili ko na lang yun murang brand. Saka di ako myado bumibili ng0-3 months kasi mabilis kalakihan ni baby yun dapat 3-6 months na damit na.

Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: crzysxycl on March 11, 2016, 05:20:59 pm

Mga essentials for newborn:
Tiesides. Since summer ngayon mas okay ang mga sleeveless na tiesides. 2 to 3 dozens
Towel
Receiving blanket
Lots of mittens kasi di naman agad magugupitan ng finger nails si baby. About 1 dozen siguro
Socks mas okay kaysa booties. Ang bilis maalis kasi ng booties
Hat or bonnet kahit 3 pcs lang
Lots of lampin. I bought 4 dozens
Shorts and pajamas. Pero mas gamit namin shorts kc mainit nga. Pag daytime nga naka  diaper lang si baby
Newborn disposable diapers
Plastic mat for cleaning the baby
Lots of cotton
70% isopropyl alcohol for cleaning the pusod
Feeding bottles and cleanser
Detergent. I use either perla or cycles ba yun. Perla P15 lang per bar
Bath tub and bath support
Soap i bought lactacyd. Pero sabi ni pedia mas okay daw johnson or cetaphil
Playpen or crib

My baby is due this June and that's the start of winter season here. So I will be preparing heaps of winter baby clothes. I have plenty of knitted hats and beanies na. Advised sakin is to buy a lot of onesies na longsleeves. Sleeping bags and swaddles na makapal. Plus the blankets na pang winter. Ang mahal pa naman ng baby items dito!! :(

I handwashed all the baby clothing na binili ko, pinaarawan ko then iron. I did not use the washing machine kasi di ko pa nattub wash since nabili namin ang unit. I used pigeon baby detergent powder, gosh amoy baby talaga sya. And Cuddles Fabric Conditioner for Sensitive Skin.

Hello! FTM here

Pag bumibili kayo ng baby clothes, usually ilang set ang dapat bilhin na size 0-3 months? Yung ibang friends ko kasi laging sinasabi na wag magbibili ng maraming damit kasi lalaki daw agad si baby. But of course may damit dapat paglabas niya. So Im wondering if nagmamatter ba yung sizes  sa babies. Thanks!
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: crzysxycl on May 14, 2016, 12:34:11 am
^thank you sis. :) naghahanap ako ng pigeon kanina, ang meron lang sila yung bottle cleanser ba yun. :( bought cycles din, yung pack of 3 sachets, try ko lang muna.

^^sis ako 9 pairs na tie sides binili ko for 0-3 mos. 3 sleeveles, 3 short sleeves saka 3 long sleeves lang. sabi ng hipag ko yung ganon daw kasi parang 2 weeks lang nagamit ng baby nya kasi ang bilis daw lumaki ng baby. meron din ako 4 onesies para pwede pang alis ni baby kung sakali may pedia visit sya.

thank you sis! pag di nakapag laba agad ipasuot ang 3-6months na damit! hehe..
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: simang on May 14, 2016, 08:12:05 pm
^haha true :) kaya nilabhan na din namin lahat ng damit nya kahit yung mga malalaki just in case suotin nya. Sabi kasi nila halos 2 wks lang daw nasusuot ang pang newborn kasi mabilis lumaki ang baby.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: bk on May 14, 2016, 09:40:50 pm
im almost 37wks preggy. Ang binili ko lang na 0-3mos ay 6 tiesides. Meron din bigay na onesie pinsan ko. Sabi ng mom ko laba na lang agad pag ubos na damit kasi nga mabilis maliitan. Tapos kung chubby baby pa, baka super saglit lang talaga magamit yung newborn size. Buti na lang hindi ako masyado bumili ng newborn, ayun ang daming binigay na pinagliitan ng baby ng pinsan ko plus may pinadala din sis ko from abroad. Ngayon ang problema ko naman e kung paano magagamit ng baby ko lahat ng newborn clothes nya, nasobrahan naman yata. Haha! #happyproblem
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: macheoc on May 14, 2016, 10:41:19 pm
Ah ok. Thanks sa tip sis! Tie sides pala tawag dun hehe. Sabi rin kasi ni ob better daw yun kesa onesies sa start lalo na kung FTM kabado pa daw hawakan si baby hehe

Hi mga mommies. Ask ko sana where can I buy baby's tie sides and lampins like birds eye ( don't know if this is a brand) in Manila area? Meron kaya sa mga malls? baclaran? Don't have any idea kasi. Thanks.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: simang on May 15, 2016, 10:39:04 am
^marami sa malls na tiesides for newborn. Yung bird's eye lampin namin i bought some sa SM dept store, then some online. Mas mura yung nabili ko online kasi 1 dozen is 330 pesos yata. I got it from The Fluffy Bear na fb page, divisoria price sila.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: coco_cola on May 15, 2016, 11:16:57 am
Okay yung Carters for NB. Two weeks na si big baby ko kasya pa yung NB clothes niya. Ordered mine via Carters website. :)
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: aylatskie on May 15, 2016, 01:46:15 pm
Thanks sis simang. By the way ang lampin ba is same sa cloth diaper? Hahaha. And mga ilang bigkis kaya kelangan? Na contact ko na ang fluffy bear.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: simang on May 15, 2016, 02:37:56 pm
^happy to help, sis. Okay ang quality ng bird's eye from fluffy bear. :) Re: cloth diaper, pwedeng lampin ang gawin mong insert. Usually kasi pag cloth diaper, meron kang absorbent material (lampin or cotton or kung ano man) + waterproof na cover/pocket. So pag nagwiwi si baby iaabsorb sya ng lampin, tapos hindi sya maglileak kasi may waterproof cover ka. So hindi mababasa ang bed and damit ni baby. Some cloth diapers naman have stay-dry lining, para kahit lampin lang gamit mo, hindi agad mafifeel ni baby na basa na.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: crzysxycl on May 15, 2016, 09:17:22 pm
Mga sis how about yung swaddle me? Sulit ba? Was able to buy swaddle pod kasi takot ako talaga hawakan baby pag maliit pa, atleast yung swaddle pod, zipper lang sya. Sakto naka 20% off when we bought. Saka pwede kaya yung regular towel gamitin kay baby after nya maligo? Dami kasi namin towels, naisip ko kung pwede yun nalang gamitin kesa bumili pa ng maraming hooded towels, minimalist living pa naman na ako ngayon hehe. Tia!
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: coco_cola on May 15, 2016, 10:29:24 pm
^I bought Halo, same din ata siya ng style, yung di zipper. I use it at nighttime, para super safe. Daytime, I use muslin blanket to swaddle my LO, para nababantayan ko if it gets loose. Di kasi ako super marunong mag swaddle.

Re: towels, sa hospital, the nurses used regular towels when doing the sponge bath. So I guess it's okay, just use baby detergent and soft [textspeak!] texture.

Ano po ang recommended niyo  mga mommies na ointment for diaper rash? May gumagamit pa ba ng J&J no more tears for baby when bathing? Or dapat Cetaphil for baby?And bottle soap/cleanser?
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: bluish_mommy on May 16, 2016, 08:34:14 pm
^ang ginamit ko sa panganay ko noon sis sa diaper rashes, Vandol ointment. pero recently ang binili ko sa Mercury dahil out of stock na ang Vandol, was Desitin, never ko pa ito na-try. nag-aayos kasi ako ng hospital bag, kaya kinukumpleto ko na mga gamit ni baby #2 dito sa bahay para ready na rin di ba.

for the soap naman, I always go for the safest and mildest, Cetaphil. yung J&J kasi although mild na rin, may scent kasi ito kaya pag ganyang may rashes ang baby, iniiwasan ko rin mga mababagong soap. I remember may nagregalo sa panganay ko dati ng set ng Mustela, di nya nakasundo, mas lumala ang rashes ng anak ko, kaya I never trusted Mustela since then, kilala pa naman ito na mild na product di ba. I guess, hiyangan rin talaga. nagkataon lang na sobrang sensitive ng skin ng anak ko kaya di nakapasa ang product na ito sa kanya.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: aylatskie on May 16, 2016, 09:13:44 pm
 sis bluish_mommy, thanks! May issue yata ang J&J before kaya ko natanong though I know naman na mild nga siya.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: simang on May 16, 2016, 09:42:20 pm
Yung cleanser namin, Nivea baby. We only got yung small sizes para makita lang kung hiyang si baby.

Yun j&j kasi they do animal testing daw so madaming hindi may gusto sa kanya.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: crzysxycl on May 16, 2016, 11:58:54 pm
Re J&J, may nabasa ako before sa FB na they were sued daw because may nagreklamong babae who used their product for 50 yrs tapos yun ata ang cause ng cancer nya. if my memory serves me right, yung powder ata ang gamit. pero meron pa follow up article, ang sabi inadmit ng J&J na meron nga harmful ingredients yung products nila, not sure if it's true though.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: aylatskie on May 17, 2016, 06:09:21 am
Re:J&J, yes it was a cancer issue so hesitant din ako to buy and ipagamit kay baby. I'm eyeing Cetaphil baby pero yung small bottle lang muna [textspeak!] to try if hiyang siya.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: bluish_mommy on May 17, 2016, 06:14:25 am
^safest talaga ang Cetaphil. I remember naka rashes sa binti anak ko noon mga 5mos palang sya nun. I brought her to a pedia-allergologist, cetaphil cleanser lang pinagamit. Ayun nawala as in! Yan din facial cleanser ginagamit ko, sa gabi I don't wash my face anymore with water, umiiwas ako sa pasma, cetaphil lang then facial tissue, tapos na.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: crzysxycl on May 17, 2016, 10:01:01 am
Mga sis dapat ba may dala tayong baby wash pag nanganak? Nalilito kasi ako, sabi ng iba pag newborn punas punas lang, di pa raw pinaliliguan. Kung need nga, baka bumili na rin muna ako cetaphil panigurado lang.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: simang on May 17, 2016, 10:12:34 am
^pinagdala kami ni OB. Usually daw pagkalabas ni baby papaliguan sya ng nurse. And sometimes the nurses will teach you din kung pano paliguan si baby
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: bluish_mommy on May 17, 2016, 10:18:47 am

Post by: simang on May 17, 2016, 10:23:25 am
^yes sis magdala ka na para sure :) other hospitals kasi will require you to give the baby's hospital bag sa nursery para pagkalabas ni baby andun na yung receiving blanket, damit nya, cleanser nya. Para pag niroom-in sya fresh na si baby.

Hi mga Sis. Kakabili lang namen ng ibang gamit ni baby earlier. Then sabi ng Saleslady supersale daw baby stuff starting Tomorrow till August 4 sa SM. You can check it out if walang mahanap na goodies Online.


List that we bought:
All are from bebe by SO-EN

6 Pajamas
6 shorts
2 bonnet
2 receiving blanket
1 bath towel
cotton balls
baby oil
Huggies new born drypers
johnsons baby wipes


yan lang binili namen since bumili na Mom ko ng tiesides, lampin, socks and mittens sa baclaran. Kaya tipid tipid  ;D ;D

So far ito pa yung kulang ko

Changing pad
bath tub
Swaddle
Feeding pillow
Baby Shampoo - Thinking of Nivea baby or Johnsons baby
Feeding bottle - optional pa and hindi pa ako sure since I'm planning to breastfeed and may nagregalo na din ng milk storage bag. What do you think mga Sis?
Bottle brush - If bibili ng feeding bottle.
Baby cabinet - Not sure what kind. I need your help with this.

PS:
I totally have no idea what we are doing right now and kung tama ba yung bilang ng mga things na binili namen. Since first baby (and it's a boy!) and kakabukod lang namen ng partner ko. as in wala pang gamit sa bahay.

HELP!  ;D
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: simang on August 01, 2016, 01:57:53 pm
^sis i don't really recommend johnsons, wala lang, hehe di ko lang bet yung brand marami kasi ako kilala na hindi okay sa brand na yan plus they test on animals din kaya di ko gusto. We're using Nivea Baby. I suggest you buy a small bottle of 2 or 3 brands muna and see what's hiyang sa skin ng baby mo. Depende din kasi kung san mas hihiyang.

And of course, I would suggest you breastfeed! :) How far along are you? Kung malapit ka na manganak, magdecide ka na kung magpapadede ka or magformula kayo. Hehe. Ebf kami since birth (10 weeks na si LO), but we still use feeding bottles from time to time if I need to get out of the house na hindi ko kasama si baby. And nagkaron din ng time na nasugat nipples ko due to breastfeeding kaya i needed to pump my milk and feed LO sa bottle.

^^sis bad.det you're welcome. Lapit na din due date mo, exciting :-) As for pump, depende sa use mo eh, if you're a working mom and kelangan bumalik sa work after your ML, electric pumps would best suit you. Spectra is a good brand. I'm a SAHM so manual pump lang gamit ko (I use Farlin, bought from lazada). You can read the breastpumps thread here madaming suggestions dun :) ako bumili ako ng pump 2 weeks pp, dun kasi yun time na nasugat nipples ko kaya i had to pump pero advised talaga is to start pumping at 6 weeks pp pa.

I used Human Heart Nature powder and liquid detergent. Hindi ako gumagamit ng fab con sa damit ng baby and even our own clothes. Usually nagkaka allergic rhinitis ako sa smell ng fab con.

7months preggy here.. eto wala pang nabibili kahit isa..hindi dahil sa pamahiin kundi dahil sa wala pang budget (^∇^)

At dahil magisa lang ako dito sa bahay, I'm planning to order sa Lazada nalang ng mga needs ko. As of now, nasa wishlist ko palang sila at nag s-search pa for more info sa mga dapat bilhin...

Actually pang apat ko na to pero yung tatlo kasi sa Japan ko lahat pinanganak.. kaya hindi naman ako ganun ka paranoid.. hehe

I will post my list soon..

Perla is advisable as laundry detergent for baby and no fabcon. Pero ang hirap mag-handwash kaya I bought Messy Baby Laundry Detergent, crossing my fingers walang allergic reaction kay baby pag labas nya ;)

Check babymama.ph sis, may physical store sila sa ortigas you can try different pumps bago ka mag purchase.

I don't use nipple cream, but my friend recommends Motherlove brand. I think available to sa parenting emporium.

I have 2 bursing covers -- one is Bloom from SM Baby Company, the other one I DIYed from an old woven scarf. I don't like the Bloom one kasi super dulas ng fabric palaging nahuhulog.

Sabi sa mga naresearch ko, mga 3-4 packs daw to start muna. Madali naman bumili ng diapers if ever kulangin or especially pag nagccloth diapers din kayo. I bought Pampers kasi nakita ko sa demo nila na talagang okay yung pag-absorb nya tapos di pa wet yung feeling so di madaling maiirritate or mababad si baby.

^depende sa baby mo, sayo at sa environment kung saan at kelan siya ipapanganak. I gave to my baby last May 2016. sobrang init, i bought 2 sleepsacks for her pero never nya nagamit. preloved lang naman so i bought them at a very low price. pero ayun, hindi nagamit. pawisin kasi ang baby ko. kinukumutan ko rin siya kahit ayon sa iba e risky dahil sa SIDS. i always check on her and ang ginagamit kong blanket yung di basta nalilipad ng electric fan. turning 6 months na siya ngayon and very healthy.

Hi sis mamey, mas mura sa mall. Kasi sa SM dep't store baby company ang bili ko sa 1 set ng comforter, 2 bolster pillows at 1 head pillow is around 900+ at [textspeak!] fitted bed sheet naman around 500+. Meron pa nga akong nakitang fitted bed sheet na nasa 250 sa SM dep't store na hindi baby company ang brand pero sabi ng saleslady pangit daw tela kasi nag hihimulmol pag nilabhan. Yun nga lang simple at limited lang designs ng fitted sheets, minsan 1 plain color lang.

Mga pedias nowadays ayaw nila ng may pinapahid pahid kay baby like manzanilla and baby oil kasi may bad effects na daw kay baby. Kaya if those oils are in your list alisin na sayang money.


Question, anong pwede kaya na fab con sa damit ni baby? I'm using cycles kasi pero nakakatigas ng damit nya. Magaspang na ibang blankets and towels nya. TIA
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: MoonshineLady on February 13, 2017, 02:17:24 pm
my son is already 1 yr and 1 month. aside from the usual baby essentials, i realized this few things which are also very essential when having a baby:

swaddle/swaddling - i bought the one by swaddle me kc madaling gamitin compare to muslins na you have to fold to swaddle. this is very comforting for babies during sleep. i only discovered the wonders of swaddling like more than 2 weeks na anak ko kaya i wish I've known it beforehand.

co-sleeper - i never had this. my baby just slept in the crib. it would really be nice to have your baby sleep beside you without worrying na madaganan mo sya  ;D

Dr. brown's feeding bottles (anti colic feature) - the one with funnel like inside. really works and minimizes baby's colic

functional and huge diaper bag - the 1st one i bought was just out of the blue as my hospital bag. but when i searched for other diaper bags online, wow there are so many much fashionable, durable and very functional. a huge one to put a lot of baby things kung pwede lang dalhin lahat ng gamit ni baby hehe.

electric breast pump - i only breastfed for 2 mos. but if i had a chance to breastfed longer i would invest on a nice and easy to use electric breast pump

air humidifier - buy a good one coz your baby really needs this to minimize nasal congestion

nasal suction & nasal drops - my baby always had nose congestion i used the one like a pump w/c is mahirap gamitin kay baby. i think the one like nose frida with small hose to suck works very well.

a very mild liquid soap for bathing - i will recommend mustela or cetaphil and the likes. the very 1st one i used was johnsons and lactacyd which is hindi hiyang ni baby nagdry skin nya. after that i used mustela na. very mild and hiyang ni baby & super bango. I'm using the liquid soap which is very tipid gamitin. as in 1 bottle lasted for like 7-8 mos. so its worth to buy it naman kahit mejo pricey.

a very nice baby carrier - i think finding the right baby carrier is hard especially for new born but I've heard good things about baby wearing. i bought a baby carrier with hipseat when my baby was old enough to use it like at 6 mos. IMO cloth like baby carriers like ergo,ktan,tula etc is not adviseable for pinas weather esp if going out unless nasa mall lang or under air conditioner.

zinc oxide cream for rashes - very useful! we need this moms!

a comfy breastfeeding chair/couch - i really wish i bought one!

nursing pillow

nursing blanket

changing table - the one i had was attached to the crib. i find it very easy to change my baby's diapers/clothes rather than doing it on the bed

socks - i wont recommend booties kasi natatangal lang sa paa. socks are better

lots of extra wash cloths/lampins/bibs - you will need a lot of these! kesa maglaba everytime better stock a lot of this na lang
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: Shadow Angel on February 14, 2017, 10:20:35 am
For now eto pa lang ang meron kami.

Crib
Stroller for more toodler na
Feeding chair and table
Few clothes
Breast pump
Nipple pads
Baby bath
Toys for infant
Rubber puzzle mat

Next na bilhin
Stroller/car seat 3 in 1
Portable crib - para pwede si baby katabi sa kama.
Electric cradle swing - pinag iisipan pa namin if need ba talaga nito medyo mahal.

^i was not able use our swaddles with our lo, mas snug for me yung baby blanket niya, flannel and cotton. Sandali lang din kami nagswaddle kasi gusto niya nakalabas yung isa niyang arm lol. Hindi naman naging prob yun  with regards to her moro reflex, pag nagugulat siya natutulog lang din siya agad, so i didnt find the need to swaddle her all the time.

Thank you sis @det060403. am planning to buy rin kasi swaddling blanket. actually right now, konti pa lang talaga yung nabili kong mga damit, i only have 3 pcs each of mga tie-sides, pajamas, etc. hindi ko alam gaano kadami ang need ko.

mga sis. meron ba sa inyong nakabili ng mga co-sleeper or bedside crib? we have a crib/playard na kaya lang parang mas defined kasi yung purpose nung co-sleeper. ask ko lang sana if sulit, kasi parang 12K na yung pinakamurang nakita ko, if ma-kaliitan na kagad ni baby within 3 months niya. sayang naman. tia! :)

May nagbigay na lang samin ng co-sleeper na portable parang ganito: http://kinderdirect.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/14-2.jpg

I think mas ok to kasi bukod sa portable, masyado atang mahal un 12k e mabilis lang lumaki ang baby. Nun nag canvas kami ng portable co-sleeper around 4-5k siya.

Hinde na din kami bumili ng crib na uso ngayon, yun may 2 levels na gawa sa nylon material. Napansin kasi namin sa pamangkin ko hinde siya natuto tumayo kasi umuuga un bed mismo kaya nag wooden crib na lang kami since pede naman siya maging playpen pag laki nya :)

Sis @dpmallo19 i think it's practical to get your baby atleast 1clothing per day depende sa laundry day, plus a few extras for spitups etc. samin, we didnt buy her too many clothes, nagsurvive namin kami, plus kasi ang bilis lumaki ng 0-3months babies.
We used portable co-sleeper din until 2months lang ata kasi ang laki niya kagad. Pagnagstretch siya, nauuntog agad lol. Kasi may parang harang sa paanan yung co-sleeper niya. We have a pack n play din, kaso lo didnt sleep there. We co-sleep kasi, mas madali for us kasi we breastfeed, direct latch... less interruption ng sleep... for both of us lol she sleeps in the middle. Namimiss ko na tuloy si hubby hahaha pero oks lang, sulitin til baby pa.:) dun lang siya naglalaro sa playpen when she started to sit na without support, around 6months, kaso sandali lang din kasi naiinip siya. So ngayon, tambakan nalang ng toys hehe..

Breast pump
Milk storage
Breast pad
Baby carrier
Yan pa kasi ang mga kulang ko bukod sa mga alcohol, wipes, diapers etc.

hello sis @det060403 - thank you for your inputs. :) dati gusto ko talaga yung co-sleeper na crib yung dating. then for practical resons, makakaliitan din kagad so hindi na lang. we had a crib/playard na din e. so nagpagawa kami sa furniture shop ng co-sleeper ni baby na kasing taas ng bed namin para madali ko siya maabot (hehe, maliit kasi yung bed namin kaya hindi kaya tabi tabi kami).

thank you rin sa advice, parang ang kulang ko talaga is yung mga baru-baruan ni baby. sana may magbigay na lang hehe.

i suggest wag ka muna bumili nito, especially if hindi ka pa decided to breastfeed, or mix feed, or formula. I think mas okay if bibili ka nito once naestablish nyo na ang feeding method nyo ni baby. Pero if you're going to breastfeed exlusively, i think essential ang magandang pump, storage bottles/bags, and breast pad. And sterilizer din. yung carrier di mo naman sya agad magagamit until baby's a little older na, around 4-5 months so okay lang if di ka muna bumili. although may carriers na good for newborn, like sling and wraps, so pwede ka bumili nun if you plan to wear your baby right away.

^^@mssummer lahat ng binanggit meron na ako. Need daw talaga yan. Iniisip ko wag na pero si hubby hindi pumayag na wala kasi must have kesa bumuli kung kelan kailangan na. Eto reasons nya
Breast pump/milk storage - kasi gusto nya matulungan ako pagpapadede sa baby para if kahalili ko sya sa gabi or if need ko umalis kahit sandali na hindi ako namamadaling umuwi at isa pa mahilig kami umalis kaya need namin during travel din.
Breast pad - unless gusto mo lagi ka lang sa house at ok lang sayo may leak sa bra/damit mo. Like i said mahilig kami umalis kaya hindi pwede.
Bottle sterilizer - need din kasi wala naman parents na hindi gusto na sure safe ang gamit ng baby.
Baby carrier - bukod sa stroller eto rin talaga madalas gamitin dito sa place namin. Isa pa mahilig talaga kami sa outdoors.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: ficklemind on March 06, 2017, 12:30:18 pm
@ MsSummer wala pa din ako ng mga yan sis. For feeding, yung basic set pa lang ng avent nabibili ko. Like what sis Simang said, antayin ko muna maestablish kung pano ba talaga feeding namin ni baby. But for the sterilizer, baka bumili na ako.
Sa tingin ko naman madali lang magshopping, pwede ko utusan si hubby tska in laws ko.
Yung carrier din wala pa, wala naman kami balak ilabas si baby for the first 3 months except for pedia visits, sulitin ko ML ko sa bahay lang kame  at parang ayoko naman icarrier pa si baby ng ganung kaliit. Yung Ergo kasi balak kong bilin eh mas ok ata yun pag 4 months na, ayoko na bumili nung newborn inserts.

ask ko lang mga sis, ano ba best na dalin baby blanket sa hospital?
What I have pa lang are  2  hooded white blankets  (yung isa yung sa SM basic lang),  3 muslin swaddle blankets and planning to buy 1 sleep sack.
Ano pa ba pagkakaiba ng receiving blanket? may nakikita kasi ako ng medyo bulky na blankets, yun ba yung receiving blanket? yun ba dapat dalhin naman sa hospital?

Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: simang on March 06, 2017, 03:24:54 pm
Ficklemind, yung hooded blankets, pwede mo na din gamitin as receiving blankets.. usually lang mas preferred na printed ang receiving blanket para lang may identity si baby if ever magstay sya sa nursery. Puro white kasi balot ng baby sa nursery so pag may print amg sa baby mo mas madali sya makita :) You can use the white ones na lang as bath towels.

Gumamit din kami ng muslin for swaddling, okay din yun since manipis lang sya. More on pang swaddle lang talaga at night

Hi sis. Maganda yung looney tunes na sterilizer.  Meron din akong avent sterilizer pinabili namin sa US kasi laking tipid.  Hindi namin agad nagamit kasi 110 volts sya kaya napabili ako ng looney tunes dito as recommended din dito. Mahal masyado ang avent sterilizer kung dito ka bibili.  Maganda ang Avent kaso kung out of budget, so far so good ang looney tunes.  Since palipat lipat kami ng house sa parents ko at in laws ko, yung avent gamit ko sa in laws ko at yung looney tunes naman sa parents ko.  Affordable pa ang looney tunes.

+1 sa Looney Tunes sterilizer. buy the sterilizer with dryer function. We got ours at the 2016 Grand Baby Fair for only 1,400.  Masyado mahal ang ibang brands like Chicco, Avent and Pigeon. Sa Looney Tunes ka na lang. been using ours for 10 months now. everyday ginagamit. breastfeeding kami but she takes my milk in Pigeon peristaltic bottles when i am at work.

So I opted to buy the Precious moments sterilizer. 1,400 lang bili ko sa grand baby fair last January. Super sulit! And I like the simple design too. Same siya nung design mg dating avent na sterilizer. I love it!

Ok naman sa avent bottles pero pag classic dahil mataba yung bote 5 lang kasya.  I'm not sure sa natural kasi slender yun

Sa tingin nyo it a must ba ang sterilizer? May nababasa kasi ako article na no need basta un wash soap for baby, warm water at un tubig naiinom ng tao i mean un galing sa tap water.

Ilang mos ba dapat kapag bibili na ng mga gamit ni baby? Nag aalangan lang kasi ako dahil sa sinasabi ng mga oldies na PAMAHIIN, They say start to buy at 8 mos na lang to be safe?

^ sis, alam ko 7 months sis pwede na. Finollow din namin pamahiin na yan. Problem lang, hinde ako makatagal sa shopping napapagod agad ako. So by batch ginawa namin, hinde ko kaya sabay sabay tapos paikot ikot, iritable na din ako, pati mga sales staff nasusungitan ko  :-X mga 4 times na kami nagpabalik balik sa mall, tapos etong last sa Divi, hinde na ako sumama si hubby na lang tska MIL ko, konti lang naman binili dun.

^^ hinde rin ako sure about sa sterilizer sis, pero bibili kami. Hubby's relatives from Japan uuwi this summer, may mga dala atang pamana sa baby ko, we asked kung may sterilizer (para hinde madoble as we plan to buy), wala daw, hinde daw uso dun yun. So not sure kung hinde nga uso or miscommunication lang.

sisses, backreading here. pero ask ko na rin.. kailangan ba mag-include ng bottles sa baby bag? although plan ko naman mag-breastfeed (and may milk na ko), para lang sure? pump, sterilizer, bottles na lang ang iniisip kong kulang pa bilhin. salamat sa mga nagsusuggest. will check looney tunes din.. naintriga ako. hehe

-ficklemind, thank you sis! Sabagay mas maganda ng sumunod sa pamahiin.

-i heard lang may magandang sterilize daw is ecomom. Pricey nga lang sya pero lahat ata ng bagay pwede i-sterilize dito inclusing toys ni baby, phones as in everything na pwede mahawakan ni baby at isubo sa bibig nya hehe. Good reviews din sya.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: dpmallo19 on March 24, 2017, 06:20:38 pm
speaking of ecomom, sobra kasi yung hype sa kanya ng mga celeb tapos nasa must-buy na list lagi. okay naman din, kaya lang hindi ko naconvice si hubby when we were in the baby fair. di niya kasi magets yung purpose, matipid din kasi si hubby at practical. anyway, nauwi kami sa avent na sterilizer, mura din naman siya. :)

Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: fionaapple on March 31, 2017, 12:42:19 pm
masyadong mahal ang Ecomom. di ako talaga na convince. masyadong hina hype ang mga baby items to the point na mina market sila as must buy like: EZPZ mat, Sofia the Giraffe teether, baby rockers, Bumbo seats and etong Ecomom... isipin na lang natin, better to invest in our baby's future... instead na bumili ng kung ano anong items for baby na hindi naman talaga kailangan, better na mag start ng savings and/or investments like mutual fund account for him or her...

Pede rin old style na pag sterilize which is i-boil yung mga bote sa pot sa stove.  Yun pa rin naman ginagawa namin pag brownout

share lang dun sa nagtatanong if need na bilin breastpump before manganak:
advise ko isama nyo na sa listahan nyo, hinde kasi ako bumili pa kasi nga based sa mga naresearch ko 6 weeks postpartum pa advisable mag pump, overconfident ako na may milk supply agad! ayun wala pala! my baby is 3 days old, nakaformula siya, though i think magkakamilk naman ako, masakit at mabigat na today breasts ko so i guess any day now, pero sayang the doctors asked me to start pumping right away and as often as possible, wala naman mabilan sa hospital, today lang ako nakapagstart. baka mamaya ayawan ni baby BM at nasanay na siya sa formula.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: mindiegirl on April 25, 2017, 11:35:31 am
Done back reading!

^salamat sa feedback sis, iiniisip ko nga din kung bibili agad eh. Baka unahin ko muna yung manual pump na hakaa magaganda feedback. Pero balak ko din bumili (pagka panganak na) nung electric (horigen) kasi back to work ako after ng ML. Kaso naiisip ko naman madoble pa.. any advice mga sis?
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: simang on April 25, 2017, 11:56:13 am
^sis i think worth it naman ang haakaa kahit may electric pump ka na, my friends swear by it, ginagamit daw nila sa other boob while baby is latched on to the other. So pang catch sya ng letdown para walang masayang na milk. Di ako gumamit ng haakaa pero I think helpful talaga sya especially sa first few months kasi usually yun ang pinakamalakas na supply mo.

I have Haakaa pero pang collect lang sya ng let down, It has suction powers but just enough for the pump to attach to your boobs. Yes, even if you have electric pump, the Haakaa is a good thing to have.

Hindi ako bumili ng pump and I have little knowledge pa about milk supply nung pagkapanganak ko so nagfomula muna si baby during his first 2 days until a lactation consultant asked me to try pumping using the hospital's pump. Ayun lumabas ang milk and napabili kami ng di oras ni hubby ng electric pump pagkalabas ng ospital.

Advise ko lang din, the usual stuff lang muna before manganak. Mga basic clothing and things. Ang dami namin hindi nagamit na mga bagay since akala namin need nun. Mas okay for me na to follow na lang yung iba na gamit after manganak, mas malalaman kung ano tlaga yung actual na kelangan. Pero ang sarap talaga mamili for our LO's.  ;D

Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: simang on May 03, 2017, 09:24:16 pm
^share ko lang sis sa amin. major items na hindi namin masyado nagamit like:

-- crib --- we ended up cosleeping. since we're breastfeeding mas convenient talaga to cosleep
-- stroller -- my daughter doesn't like to be on it so we ended up wearing her everytime we're out.
-- sterilizer -- nagamit only during the first month, kasi my daughter only took the bottle for a few weeks, and then she refused it na, so direct latch na kami everytime
-- nursing pillow -- i hated it, haha, ayoko yung feeling na naka-hug sya sa tyan ko, so i just used a regular pillow for support during nursing

Yun. Ang mga basics talaga like lampins, tie sides, bibs/burp cloths, yan kahit maghoard ka nyan okay lang kasi sulit talaga walang masasayang. Hehe.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: Shadow Angel on May 04, 2017, 12:20:09 am
^thanks sis simang. Meron na rin kami crib at stroller sa amin naman alam namin magagamit namin dahil hindi pwede ang co sleeping dito isa pa un crib ni baby until 5 years old pede sya magamit dahil pwede sya gawing kama pag toodler na. Hindi rin pwede walang stroller dahil sa dami ng park at malalaki hindi pwede naka carrier lang un baby. Common din un dito parang ikaw magiging kakaiba if gumagala ka ng may baby na hindi naka stroller.
About sterilizer wala kami nya kasi sabi ko if need namin mag bottle mag manual strelize na lang. About clothes konti lang binili namin dahil mabilis naman lumaki ang bata at isa pa gusto ko magamit lahat nun clothes na nabili karamihan kasi dahil pang lakad minsan lang magamit sabi ko kay hubby kahit nasa house gamitin para masulit at paglalabas ready to go na sya. Need din magtipid dahil masyadong mahal mga gamit ni baby na binili namin ni hubby like stroller and crib. Kaya sa ibang items kami nag titipid. Wish ko lang maging successful ako sa breastfeeding dahil sobrang mahal ng formula milk.

Hello mga sis question lang po.

Do i really need to buy those avent or expensive feeding bottles?? Alam ko worth it naman but when i went around the baby section at SM i saw bottles na mura lang din like yung mga 4oz for newborn.

Siguro kung pasok nako sa work will buy pigeon bottles pero 2 pieces lang.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: sarsingkit on May 19, 2017, 06:26:52 am
^If you are planning to breastfeed by direct latch then no need na siguro. But I still recommend Avent or any wide neck bottle. Nipple confused kasi si baby nung simula (We were using Dr. Brown's) but when I shifted to Avent, it helped me transition from bottle to breast.

Hi mommies! Ask ko lang kung gano katagal nagagamit ni baby ang new born clothes. I'm thinking if we should still buy new born sizes or the next size na...mas maliit ba ang NB size kesa sa 0-3?
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: ficklemind on June 09, 2017, 08:47:29 am
^ 0-3 na bilin mo, hinde din naman  aabot ng 3 months maliit na din agad. wala ata ako nabiling NB size, meron pala nun? sa SM dept store lang ako bumili ng mga pambahay na damit  ni baby all 0-3, mag 2 months pa lang siya but yung 3-6 months na yung iba niyang damit.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: prettylove on June 09, 2017, 09:27:26 am
@trumpetclive, bumili ka sis ng 0-3 na 1 dozen lang mabilis kasi lumaki si baby, wag ka na sumobra doon and usually naman after 2-3 days lalabhan agad ang damit ni baby. Alam ko newborn size na ang 0-3 pero meron pala mas maliit doon ang size is called premie para un sa mga premature babies mas maliit ang size nya compared to 0-3, nakita ko lang kasi sa st patrick na clothes.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: fionaapple on June 09, 2017, 12:50:31 pm
^i am a mom of a 1 year old. di ba tiesides ang sinusuot pag newborn? one size lang yun pag tiesides . daily naglalaba ang yaya ng baby ko.

suggestion lang for clothing:

1. tiesides - bili ka lang ng 6 pieces na sleeveless tiesides,
                                               6 pieces short sleeves and
                                               3 pieces lang na long sleeves (kung sakaling malamig).

2. pajamas- ang mga pajamas na nabibiling kapartner ng tiesides, one size lang din. free size siya. at magagamit pa ng baby mo kahit 1 year old na. speaking from experience, kasi yung mga white pajamas ng baby ko na kapartner ng tiesides, nagagamit pa namin.

3. 1 dozen mittens, 1 dozen booties

4. 3 pieces baby socks for going out

5. going out clothing/onesies/clothes other than tiesides - 3 pieces 0-3, then 6 pieces na pang 3-6 months. 

6. 2 pieces hooded footies.

wag muna bumili ng maraming going out clothing kasi:

1. marami nagbibigay.
2. mas makakabili ka ng size na tama sa kanya kung hihintayin mo muna siya mapanganak. may baby kasi na malaki,meron din katamtaman lang.  meron naman petite.

sa ngayon, 13 mos na ang baby ko, pero i buy mga 18mos and 24 mos na. though medyo malaki pa sa kanya yung pang 24 mos, depende rin kasi sa mismong style ng clothes. 18 mos ng Carter's tama lang sa kanya. gusto ko pa bumili ng clothes pero nagho hold back ako kasi di naman nasusuot talaga ng madalas.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: mindiegirl on June 09, 2017, 01:40:09 pm
^Wow thanks sa tips sis. Alin ba ang mas ok na mittens at booties? Yung de-tali o yung banded? Yung frogsuit ba ok ipantulog? How about yung onesies na sleveless and short sleeves (plain white lang), ok ba bumili pang 3-6 months na size?

Thank you!  :)
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: fionaapple on June 09, 2017, 02:14:56 pm
1. Alin ba ang mas ok na mittens at booties? Yung de-tali o yung banded? for me, no need for branded newborn tiesides/layette. Divisoria ok na. though, i do not have the patience and courage to brave the traffic, so i ordered mine from Fluffy Bear facebook seller. Divisioria supplier sila. cheap mittens and booties delivered to your doorstep.

2. Yung frogsuit ba ok ipantulog?

mainit yun. depende sa klima kung saan ka nakatira at panahon. mainit sa bansa natin usually. i gave birth to my baby during a hot summer month and i actually did not buy a frogsuit. may nagregalo lang ng isa at ginamit ko lang nung tag ulan. actually, ok na kahit isa lang. pero pantulog, i do not know kung gaano kalamig or kainit sa kwarto nyo where the baby will sleep. we swaddled our baby for only about 1 week lang yata. but we never made her sleep in a frogsuit. i bought 2 swaddle suits but she never used them.

2.  How about yung onesies na sleveless and short sleeves (plain white lang), ok ba bumili pang 3-6 months na size? ok din yun.siguro mga 6 pieces max.

actually, when i was pregnant, my aunt gave me used white tiesides of her grandson. that is what i used for my baby. alternate with onesies. actually, when my baby was a newborn, i preferred dressing her up in cute onesies than tiesides.

Other tips: For lampin, buy Enfant's lampin. they sell them in different colors, not only white. they have orange, pink, violet, blue,yellow and green.

para color-code ang pangpunas mo. for the white, pangpunas lang ng butt/pangpunas during diaper change. colored ones, pangpunas ng bibig, panglagay sa likod.

1. Nabili ko pala SM Dept Store 3M-6M na tiesides, hindi 0-3M. Ok lang kaya yon? Malaki na si baby naka tie side pa din?
2. What about bonnets? Kailangan ba to?
3. Gano kadaming new born diaper nagagamit ni baby sa isang araw?
4. Yung baby wipes, gano kadami nagagamit non?

Baka off topic na to pero tanong ko na din just in case may makasagot :)
1. Pano nilalabhan pillows and comforter ni baby? Hand wash, machine wash or bilad lang sa araw? Kami kasi yung comforter pinapalaundry namin, tapos ang pillows binibilad lang (yung pillow case shempre laba)

Dami kong tanong, first time mom kasi and wala talagang experience mag alaga ng baby. 😅

1. Nabili ko pala SM Dept Store 3M-6M na tiesides, hindi 0-3M. Ok lang kaya yon? Malaki na si baby naka tie side pa din?

-- okay lang naman sis kaso ang magiging problem mo dyan is by the time na marunong na mag roll over si baby (3-4 months) napakahirap na bihisan at hassle at may tali tali. Also pag marunong na sila maghila ng tali. Kaya mas better if onesies na lang pag medyo malaki na si baby.

2. What about bonnets? Kailangan ba to?

-- for me sis it's safe to have a few, siguro max of 3 pcs. Gumamit lang kami ng bonnet during the first week.

3. Gano kadaming new born diaper nagagamit ni baby sa isang araw?

-- depende sa output ni baby mo. Siguro on average nasa 1 nappy every 3-4 hours, so 6-8 pcs in a day. To be safe, sabihin na nating 10 pcs kasama na accidental poops.

4. Yung baby wipes, gano kadami nagagamit non?

-- for newborns, mas better if cotton balls na lang gamitin mo sis na soaked sa water. Ganun gamit ko dati. Bukod sa mas mura, less chemicals din unlike wet wipes. We switched to cloth wipes nung medyo hindi na ganun kasensitive si baby.

Baka off topic na to pero tanong ko na din just in case may makasagot :)
1. Pano nilalabhan pillows and comforter ni baby? Hand wash, machine wash or bilad lang sa araw? Kami kasi yung comforter pinapalaundry namin, tapos ang pillows binibilad lang (yung pillow case shempre laba)

-- we machine wash comforters. Yung pillows, handwash.

Dami kong tanong, first time mom kasi and wala talagang experience mag alaga ng baby. 😅

-- i totally feel you sis. Kakaexcite na nakakakaba ano? Hehe. Good luck. Don't worry pag andyan na si baby, feeling mo ang galing galing mo na agad. Hehe. Totoo yata yung maternal instinct eh.

Dun sa mga nagtatanong kung NB, 0-3mos, 3-6mos ba bibilhin, depende rin kasi yan sa size ng baby. Yung baby ko medyo malaki, 7lbs sya nung pinanganak so after 1mo masikip na agad sa kanya yung mga 0-3mos na tie sides. Samantalang yung pinsan nya na medyo underweight e 4mos na pero kasya pa rin mga tie sides nya.

1. bonnet-ginagamit para dagdag warmth sa baby. pagka ligo nilalagay. for newborn lang yan. pero baby namin, sandali lang nagbonnet. mga 1 week lang. malaking baby siya paglabas. malaki head nya so yung mga 0-3 mos na bonnet na nabili ko, sikip agad sa ulo nya pagkapanganak. 3 to 6 mos bonnet agad ang ginamit. ang funny nga ng itsura nya sa hospital kasi sikip ang bonnet nya. di ko naman naisip na pwede palang ganun ang mangyari.

Hello,

Sharing lang din. New mom ako with a one-month old baby. Salamat sa tips dito, nasala ko yung mga things to buy. Basics talaga yung nabili ko

Eto lang yung mga sobra yung bili ko.
Mittens - after 1st week ni baby, di na namin siya nalagyan ng mittens. sabi kasi ni pedia, para daw sa motor skills development niya. (nagnail file kami on the first week)
Bonnet - nilalagay lang pag-aalis tsaka sa hospital

I find very useful din
nail file/trimmer - baby got long nails so we use this instead of the regular trimmer
nasal aspirator/nasal spray- lagi stuffy nose ni baby kaya pansin namin he breathes through his mouth
portable/travel bed - okay lang wala nito kasi saglit lang magamit. but very useful when travelling. latag lang namin sa table or chairs, etc
lampin/muslin cloth- napakauseful. pamunas ng kahit ano, pangsapin, pangkumot, etc
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: ficklemind on June 15, 2017, 03:47:16 pm
^ true yang sa mittens, 1 to 2 weeks lang din ginamit. Ayaw na palagyan ni MIL & friends pabebe daw masyado itsura lol eh baby pa naman talaga hahaha seriously para nga daw sa development ni baby eh mas maganda nakaopen na hands niya.
hirap lang magtrim ng nails napaka lambot pa pero nadaan sa tiyaga. Now at 2 months medyo madali na magtrim.

agree sa lampin, bili kayo madami nito mga sis, gamitin talaga,  pamunas, panglatag, pang cover din since yung baby ko palipat lipat sa bahay namin tska sa bahay ng in laws ko sa tapat.

bonnet - siguro first week lang nagamit nung nasa hospital siya.

Mittens- never nagamit kasi pinatanggal ng doctor day 1 pa lang need ng baby na malaman naigagalaw at nakakahawak sya. Buti na lang lahat ng mittens namin gift lang. About sa kuko file lang namin di pa pede icut.
Bonnet - kapag nasa labas lang si baby.

Swaddle - nagandahan kasi ako sa feedback ng sleepsack swaddle para daw mahimbing tulog ng baby. di ko masyado nagamit kasi  si baby ayaw niya narerestrict yung movement niya

Mga sis how about rompers, caoveralls/frogsuit tingin nyo sobrang magagamit ba? Thanks
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: trumpetclive on June 21, 2017, 08:12:13 pm
Prettylove, bumili ako ng romper pero 1 lang muna. Frogsuit wala ako binili..ito ba yung may hood? May nabasa kasi ako na baka may risk ma SIDS si baby ng hood. Bumili ako ng konting overall yung pati paa covered. Baka kasi mabilis humaba si baby kaya konti lang binili ko and baka pag gabi lang nya magamit kasi maiinit naman sa umaga.

I'm almost done shopping, next step is labhan lahat ng binili😊

I'm having second thoughts on buying milk bottles and sterilizer since I plan to breastfeed. Kayo ba mga sis, bumili na ba kayo even before baby's born and you plan to breastfeed?
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: prettylove on June 21, 2017, 09:51:47 pm
@trumpetclive, bumili na ako ng 4 oz na bottle na 4 pcs lang kasi try ko din mag pump na manual tapos lalagay ko sa bottle n lang. 
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: sarsingkit on June 22, 2017, 02:22:15 am
^^I bought bottles pa rin and a sterilizer was given to me. I ended up breastfeeding so I was able to use the bottles ng mga 2 months lang until the baby exclusively latches directly on me. I think it is still worth buying a few bottles even if you plan to breastfeed.

On frogsuits or overalls, depende kung gaano kainit. I live over seas and it was winter when baby was born to puro overalls lang talaga ang damit nya nung newborn kahit lumalabas kami. Hindi na ako bumili ng separate ng pang alis until baby was 3 months old. So sulit na sulit yung overalls nya.

ako plan ko talaga magbreastfeed kaya starter kit lang ng bottles bili ko, 2 pcs 4oz and 9 oz. we had sterilizer din. currently 5 weeks na yung baby ko and and di ko pa nagagamit bottles. yung sterilizer naman nagagamit ko to sterilize my breast pump and other baby stuff.

Sorry mga sis, not sure kung tama dito ipost ang question ko. Sa mga experienced moms, ask ko lang kung ok ba bumili ng playard when baby is already 2 mos old? We're planning to co-sleep naman on the first 2 months. I'm thinking pabili sa friend ko na manggaling sa US, ang laki ng difference sa local price ng mga graco pack and play. My friends told me na di din masyado magagamit ang crib lalo sa first months. I'll be working after my maternity leave and di ko alam kung mas okay for yaya and my mom (who's in her 70s) na alagaan or bantayan si baby from bed or playard.

Baka gumamit muna kami ng co-sleeper na 4k or less. May maisuggest ba kayo where I can buy locally? Preferrably sana yung madali bitbitin for travelling pag pumupunta sa in-laws ko.  Thanks! :)
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II

Anyone who tried Tiny Buds for their baby? 😊 I've been doing online window shopping for hours now and I think I'm loving their products. 😊
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: Maple19 on September 11, 2017, 10:45:48 am
I think pag lagi ka outdoors like traveling out of town or visiting in-laws, the playpen / play yard will be convenient. at least you know it is clean because it is yours. it's much safer too for your baby if you are in a different place, and you know she or he will be safe while inside his or her play yard. US price difference is really huge than here, to me I'll go for it.
disadvantage is if your child grow up so fast, or that he or she does not like to be in it. that's mean you will only be able to use either until your child is big na that not comfortable na to stay there, or child wants to move around and will cry if put there for a long time.

Thanks sis Sally! We'll buy a pack and play here na lang in the Philippines.

^ In my POV sis, ok naman na mamili ka na on your 5th month eh, para hindi ka pa masyado pagod. Personally kung 7th month kasi masyado ka nang kagampan wala ka ng masyadong energy sa bigat ng dala mo.

Simulan mo na sa mga clothing like for 0-3months (considering wala kang pamanang damit, ako kasi meron) tapos yung mga ibang items na toiletries ang next. Then last yung pwede mo madecision-an pag malapit na like stroller, playpen.

Hindi ako nagoverbuy ng gamit kasi inintay ko yung binyag ni baby, so marami syang regalo na hindi ko na kelangan bilhin like mga pang-alis, toys, feeding utensils. Those can wait. Hindi mo naman pa dapat ipasyal masyado ang baby on the 1st three months except pedia visits eh. So minimize ka dun. When buying things, in 6's para bulk price pag divisoria ka mamili cheaper na.

Eto naman eh idea lang, you dont have to follow nasa iyo ang huling decision. :)


From baclaran , pano po pumunta ng divisoria? and pabalik ng baclaran? Ask lang po : D
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: sarsingkit on October 19, 2017, 06:11:03 am
^Great list. Although, I would say, kung bibili na rin lang ng car seat, bilhin na din yung matching stroller. Nakakaawa naman kasi ang baby if nakatulog sa car seat tapos aalisin each time bababa ng car. Magigising si baby nyan. Kapag compatible yung stoller sa car seat, hindi mo na aalisin si baby sa car seat. Bubuhatin mo na lang si car seat at icoconect sa stoller.

Oh and a rocking chair is so comforting lalo na for breastfeeding. We bought a rocker/recliner para pwede na din tulugan habang nakabantay kay baby.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: fionaapple on October 19, 2017, 02:05:00 pm
kahit maraming online checklist na available, iba iba pa rin ang lifestyle natin, so 1 mom's nice-to-have might be another mom's must-have/essential item and vice versa. yan ang natutunan ko ngayong 1 year and 6 months old na ang baby ko. madaming items na akala natin must-have pero pag nanay/tatay na tayo, saka natin na re realize kung fit or hindi sa lifestyle natin ang bawat baby item na pwedeng bilhin.  iba iba din kasi ang preference ng mga babies.

sample scenarios:

1. crib/playpen - marami akong nakikitang nagbebenta ng crib nila na hindi nagamit dahil daw co-sleeping sila. pero in our case, kahit co-sleeping kami,  we have 2 portable cribs/playards in our house at nagamit naman namin ng husto. yung isa ay second hand lang kaya pwede na namin idispose agad-agad pag di na gumagamit ng crib si baby sa baba ng bahay.

2. car seat- di masyado nagamit kasi di siya nasanay sa car seat. nung maliit kasi siya, kinukuha ng yaya sa car seat kapag umiiyak. pero keep muna namin para magamit ng next baby.

3. stroller- we got an umbrella stroller kasi di namin gusto ng mabigat at malaking stroller. ayaw din ni baby sa stroller, she prefers to be in a baby carrier.

4. SaYa wrap carrier - buti na lang,bigay lang ito ng cousin ko, pero di ko nagamit ng husto kasi ayaw ng baby ko, sobrang naiinitan siya.

5. Bitybean SSC carrier - ito nasulit naman namin kasi kapag lumalabas kami at di kasama ang yaya, dito siya nakalagay. especially nung minsan na nag Zoobic Safari kami. laking tulong kasi di ako nahirapan. nakakatulog pa siya kapag nakalagay siya dito.

6. Baby company highchair - ayaw ni baby. buti na lang pahiram lang ito from an officemate na nagdestash. pinasa ko sa ibang officemate namin na may baby din. ayaw ng anak ko sa highchair kasi ang layo niya sa amin kapag kumakain.

7. Fisher Price booster seat- bought this at a second hand/surplus shop for baby items at 900 pesos. sulit na sulit kasi simula nung nabili ko ito, mas maayos siyang kumain. parang katabi lang namin siya kasi kinakabit lang sa chair namin yung seat. at di kami nahihirapan pakainin siya.

8. conventional walker - nung 8 or 9 months ang anak ko, pinilit ako ng mama ko bumili nito. lalong hindi natuto ang anak ko maglakad. pinatigil ko paggamit nito. sa halip, hinayaan namin siya kumapit kapit sa furniture at gumapang gapang. pinapahawak namin sa monoblock at yun ang tinutulak nya. ayun, 1 year and 1 month nung matatag na siya lumakad.

9. push walker- delikado ito. kasi mga 2 to 3 x nabagok ulo ng anak ko kasi dume derecho ang push walker at nasusubasob ang anak ko. pero ok na rin nilalaro nya na lang ngayon na tinutulak kahit marunong na siya maglakad.

10. bibs and bib with catcher- ayaw niya magsuot ng bib. mas gusto nya madumi ang damit nya kapag kumakain. lol.

11. turbands/headbands - ayaw ng anak ko ng mga headband.

12. knee protector - binili ko lang, di naman nagamit.mabilis natuto maglakad ang baby ko, di siya masyado gumapang.

13. cloth diapers- nasulit namin ng husto, nung una, ayaw ng husband ko kasi akala nya yun ang nagiging cause ng rashes. pero ang totoong cause pala ay dahil tamad ang yaya namin magpalit ng diapers at tamad din mag punas/magtuyo ng bum ni baby bago lagyan ng diapers.

ngayon, husband ko pa madalas nagpapalit ng cloth diaper ni baby. favorite nya pa yung Little Prince na pocket hf. alam na din ni hubby na reliable ang Bum Genius pag nighttime.

happy ako na naging succesful naman kami sa cloth diapering. Every cloth diaper that we use is one less disposable diaper that will fill wreak havoc on our environment.

ayan yung iba-ibang experience ko sa mga baby items based on our lifestyle and our baby's preferences.,

^maganda review mo tama ka dyan na depende yan kung na saan at kung ako life style nyo sa pag aalaga ng bata. Ako naman so far eto ang masasabi ko.

3 in 1 car seat - pwedeng stroller or isama un car seat sa stroller. Walang araw na hindi naman ito nagagamit dahil must have sya dito sa ibang bansa hindi pwede hindi naka car seat ang bata kapag na sa car otherwise huli ka. Besides kahit saan ka pumunta naka stroller ang mga baga dito.

Electric swing with music and toys - eto sulit din pwedeng swing lang alisin ang mga toys madaling alisin mga toys. May mode na music for sleeping or music for playing mood.

Rocking chair - gustong gusto rin eto ni baby dito naman sya nilalagay pag kakain kami kasi maliit lang un rocking chair. Nakakain kami ng maayos at sabay kumain ni hubby.

Bib - gamit na gamit namin ang bib 3 dozens meron si baby.

Play yard - eto naman during travel ok sya kapag mahilig kayo umalis.

Activity mat - favorite ni baby kapag nakahiga sya dito rin sya dumadapa.

Shoes - hindi ko masyadong nagamit ang dami nya shoes na naliitan kasi pawisin si baby.

Crib - dito talaga natutulog si baby.

Bassinet - almost 2 months namin nagamit after ok to sa new born baby talaga.

Mittens - hindi namin nagamit.

Nasal tube - sulit lalo na kapag may dumi sa ilong or sipon si baby.

Nasal drops - must have to para hindi mahirapan si baby kapag may bara ang ilong.

Actually lahat ng binili namin kay baby nagagamit talaga namin kasi pinag iisipan namin ng husto bago namin bilhin or based sa behavior ni baby kung ano ang ok sa kanya.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: sarsingkit on October 20, 2017, 09:22:50 am
^Kami din in fairness nagamit naman namin lahat ng binili namin. Actually napabili pa kami ng mga gamit na feeling ko hindi kailangan pero kailangan pala namin like:

Breast pump - sobrang confident ko kasi sa breastfeeding pero biglang napabili kami ng breastpump (as in pagkauwi from hospital) which we were able to use din ng mga 3 months before baby and I finally had rhythm sa breastfeeding.

Changing Table - I didn't buy one not until baby was around 6 months old. And oh my, it saved my back. Sobrang relief.

Baby Carrier - eto din, I didn't buy one not until baby was around 4 months. Someone gave us a Baby Bjorn and it is not ergonomic at all. So I bought a good and sturdy one. I like taking him for walks so sobrang sulit

Bibs and washcloth - I bought additional kasi parang nagamit na lahat bago pa ako maglaba.

For those who might think that theses are not essentials pero it is so necessary for us.

Car seat (with compatible stroller) - because kailangan, hindi pwedeng wala. Hindi makakauwi from hospital pag walang car seat and syempre for safety ni baby.

Diaper genie - para sa tamad na kagaya ko na ayaw magtapon ng basura everyday. But a normal trash bin with lid can work as well.

Crib - I know cosleeping is so much the norm among Filipinos pero hindi ko talaga kaya. Mas magaan ang buhay ko pag may sari-sarili kaming higaan.

Bottle warmer - for when the time baby was drinking expressed milk. Actually si hubby ang may favorite nito dahil hindi nya matiis si baby na nagugutom and waiting for baby to have his milk. Eh gusto ni baby, warm ang gatas. 

Our rocker/recliner. Again, the changing table.

I didn't bother with clothes and toys kasi alam ko maraming magbibigay ng toys and clothes. So bare minimum lang binili ko

mga sis, in terms of clothes, as of now i have the following in newborn/0-3m sizes:

2 pcs long sleeved onesies
2 pcs short sleeved onesies
2 pcs sleeveless onesies
1 set (top&bottom) pajamas

this is all i have for now, not sure if its worth buying more. checking others' list, it's like, 6 pcs onesies, 6 tiesides ang minimum na number of clothes. may mga pamana namang parating (and feeling ko rin naman may mga magreregalo pa) pero not sure if it will arrive before or after birth pa. i'm based abroad din so walang divisoria/baclaran na cheap but good stuff dito.

was thinking maybe i could get more of the sleeveless onesies na maybe one size bigger. pero pa-advise na rin mga sis if talagang need ko pa dagdagan, and ano ang ok na idagdag, and how many more. thank you :)
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: Shadow Angel on October 20, 2017, 11:45:57 am
^^kami naman from the start may changing table na. Mabilis at maayos kasi un sa amin may 3 malaking drawer kaya lahat ng need ng papalit kay baby nandun na like cloth diaper, cream, wipes, lotion etc. at mga damit na madalas nya gamitin isa pa tama ka no back pain at all.

May rocking chair din kami na pang adult just in case gusto nya buhat sya.

Cloth diaper - sobrang sulit din nito.
Baby bag - must have lalo na kung mahilig kayo sa outdoor activities.
Rubber puzzle mat - para iwas sa untog si baby sa sahig dito rin sya humihiga pag pagod na si baby sa activity mat nya.

Ok na un list mo for 1 month lang pero pag above one month medyo dagdagan mo pa ng konti kahit 6pcs lang. Unless ok lang sayo na lagi maglaba. Ang dami rin nagbigay sa amin 3 weeks before kami maglaba sa dami nya damit na bigay sa amin.

For the cloths of the baby, prepare a 2-week worth of cloths. You may not know when will you be available to wash them, because admit it, us mothers are very busy right after giving birth. And also, remember to buy extra durable baby products (https://babyandme.com.ph/baby-products/) so that they could be used for a long time.
Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: fionaapple on January 06, 2018, 08:43:35 am
any idea san po nakakabili ng ergonomic carrier?

momlory, mahalaga sa babywearing ang pagbabasa ng articles at mag research. mag join ka sa Babywearing Philippines facebook group para mas marming malaman about babywearing. tsaka may mga nagbebenta ng preloved ergonomic carriers doon kaya pwede ka makamura kung di ka maselan sa preloved items.

 maraming brands ng ergonomic na carrier, maraming seller,  at maraming type. so medyo mahaba kung bibigyan kita ng listahan. depende rin kasi yun sa preference mo. ang importante lang ay bilhin mo yung nagpo promote ng M position ng legs. wag yung narrow based carriers (NBC).


for types:

may mga ringsling, mei tai, wraps, at soft structured carrier (SSC). at marami pang ibang types. ang pinaka versatile ata ay ringsling at wrap kasi pwede n gamitin from newborn stage.

mahal ang mga SSC dahil madaling gamitin pero hindi lahat pwede gamitin agad from newborn stage. kadalasan may minimum age and weight requirement.  some SSCs i know are:  Ergo, Tula, Lillebaby, Lennylamb, IMA (local brand), Onya, Love & Carry, Manduca. We have only 1 carrier, Bitybean ang brand. ito napili namin kasi lightweight siya at mesh type, kaya di gaano mainit. also hindi naman kami ganun kadalas gumamit, more on pag wala lang yaya na kasama or pag mahabang lakaran lang kaya ito mid range priced SSC ang binili namin

nung una niregaluhan kami ng SaYa pero di namin nagamit kasi di ko matutunan kung paano. tsaka di type ni hubby. kaya bumili kami ng Bitybean. gusto nya kasi yung lightweight lang.

for sellers: Babymama, CEO Emporium, 9 Months and Beyond, Love &Carry PH, IMA, Mom's Little Boss. kung physical store ang hanap mo, may physical stores ang 9 months and beyond at Babymama. di ko masuggest sa malls kasi madalas sa malls hindi ergonomic carriers ang binebenta.

Katatapos ko lang mag plano. Dami bibilhin. Lol!
Syempre yung basics like baby care & clothing. Then nilista ko yung feel ko need talaga for my sanity 😀 especially 1 month paternity leave lang si hub then I will be a stay at home mama.

1st month:

1. Baby capsule (or car seat. Required kasi).
2. Co-sleeper or crib (still undecided).
3. 2 weeks worth of newborn nappies (check if hiyang or need to upgrade to bigger size). Also, baby wipes. 
4. 6 bottles & formula milk (just in case pahirapan mag bf).
5. Steriliser kit.
6. Breast pump, breast pads, & breast milk storage bags.
7. Nipple cream (lanolin) or coconut oil.
8. Night light.

2nd month & beyond:

1. Stroller (a must. Since balak ko mag grocery 3x a week while walking/strolling with the baby. Exercise ko na to haha).
2. Ergo baby carrier with infant insert (for those times ayaw namin magdala stroller).
3. Baby bag pack (simple lang, ayoko complicated design or makulay).

^sis FayeP from your experience gaano kadaming pairs ng swaddles and receiving / muslin blankets and need ni Baby?  Magagamit ba nya yung kahit more than 3 months na sya?  Ayaw ko kasi bumili ng sobrang dami ang mamahal pa naman ng mga swaddles and muslin blankets.

^sis madame_ekis, madami kami swaddle blankies na binili ko at bigay sa mga baby showers, kaso sa mga anak ko ang nagamit ko lang mga 3 ata kada bata...nun umuwi lang sila nakaswaddle tapos first three days, example sa panganay ko, nun umuwi kami nakaswaddle pa siya tinuruan ako ng nurse ng pagswaddle....then sa bahay tinanggal ko na kasi alam mo naman dito sa PInas, napakainit...ang AC namin nasa room lang so pag andun siya sa crib nya sa sala, electric fan lang, feeling ko mas naginhawaan siya nung walang swaddle...kaya ang masasabi kong nagamit ko is mga 3pcs per kid siguro...

May stroller pa nga sana kame kase yung Peg Perego pliko mini ng daughter ko pinahiram naming sa sister in law ko last year when she gave birth. Hinde naming talaga pinapamigay yon for the longest time kase hoping pa kame. Plus, it's so sturdy . My daughter used it when she was 1 yr old until she turned 5 (ginagamit naming higaan nya pag nagshshopping hehe). When I got pregnant, sabe ng husband ko, wag na kunin sa sister nya kase ayaw na din nya ng nagamit na ng iba. Mejo half hearted ako kase mejo mahal talaga yon pero kawawa din naman kase yung baby kung babawian ng gamit :D Anyway, nakaka excite naman bumili ng stuff. Magastos lang. Yung shopping namin last weekend, nagulat din ako sa total. Although  may kasama naman kaseng bottles and yun ang nagpamahal kahit discounted. Okay na din, at least half way nako. Nag ayos na din ako closet ni baby boy hihi

^Good buy naman sya sis :) Magaan chaka super sturdy hehe.

Sa daughter ko nasayang yung playpen na binili ko kase hinde nya nagamit, lalagyan lang ng mga toys and damit. Ayaw nya kase matulog don. Pero this time with baby boy, co-sleeper/playpen bilhin ko, yung nabababa yung isang side. Hinde kase kame kaya na sa bed because my daughter still sleeps with us and mukang wala pa sya balak gamitin yung own bed nya sa room nya especially now na excited sya for her baby brother.

Mga siz, worth it ba bumili crib?
Di ko maalala saang thread ko nabasa pero some mums say not worth it.. ayaw daw matulog ng baby nila dun.

Galing kasi kami Ikea kanina, gusto ni hubby itong white wooden crib kaso namamahalan ako 😅. 8k na pinaka mura and di pa included mattress dun (around 4k).
Gusto kasi nya yung crib sa kwarto namin. Yung playpen sa sala. We currently use double bed sakto lang kami ni hubby dun, masikip na if sali pa si baby.
How about playpen lang kunin namin? Pwede kaya yun lagyan ng baby mattress if ever dun na lang sya matulog.

Hoping ako ibibigay ni SIL yung iCandy stroller ng bunso nya LOL! Super nice kasi I tried it very smooth imaneuver pero maharlika $1,699 original price may sale $1,099 pero mygosh di naman kami mayaman haha.

Post by: twelvth_goddess on October 26, 2019, 07:22:03 pm
^^I'd advise against getting both unless you're okay and open with the possibility na masayang money with one or the other. I was one of those na bumili ng playpen for my 1st child pero hinde nya ginamit kase ayaw nya magsleep don mostly because hinde ko din sya nilalagay don. Nung una, sabe ko hinde ko sasanayin na co-sleep sa bed kase dangerous nga. Kaso when I gave birth, andon yung feeling na gusto ko sulitin the time I have bago ako bumalik sa work. So yon, hinde ko sya napapatulog sa playpen, thus, hinde nasanay. With my upcoming baby, wala naman kame choice kase crowded kame sa bed. Our daughter still sleeps with us kase. So I'm getting a co-sleeper playpen, yung nababa yung isang side.

Post by: Shadow Angel on October 26, 2019, 09:23:21 pm
Kami naman gamit ng anak ko ang crib until now. Sa umpisa nasa room namin un crib until mag one year old sya. After her birthday nilipat na namin sa talaga room nya un crib nya. Once or twice a week sa bed namin sya natutulog. Mas ok ang crib un playpen parang hindi sila comfortable matulog kahit pa may mattress.

Mas ok if un crib pwedeng tanggalin un kabilang side kaya until 5 years old pede pa nya magamit.

^Basta maganda yung quality ng wood, tumatagal nga sya talaga. I remember I had a crib back when I was young tapos hanggang sa grade 1 ako, nahihigaan ko pa kase hinde sya tinanggal sa room ko even when I got a bed. Gusto ko din sana ng crib na lang instead of a playpen but space naman ang issue samin cus our condo is so small. Maybe kung hinde tumira sister ko saken, makakapaglagay ako ng crib sa kabilang room naming :D

Hello! Any reviews on Pigeon bottles?

Honestly, Avent lang ang alam ko na brand. Hahaha. I asked another thread and they suggested Como Tomo and NUK. I checked and both seems okay dahil walang nipple confusion when switching from BF to bottle and anti colic.

My MIL highly suggests Pigeon though. Thank you.

Post by: FayeP on November 19, 2019, 01:00:42 pm
comotomo magaganda ang reviews...yung NUK daw halos parang boobies daw ang texture...Feeling ko kasi dito sa Pinas, na-hype ng husto ang Avent, di ako fan hehe parang ordinary bottle lang siya for me...mas maganda pa nga tommee tippee...

Hello! Any reviews on Pigeon bottles?

hello! my baby has grown with Pigeon Wide Neck (peristaltic) bottles.

dami ko brands nung baby pa siya. Avent, Tommee Tippee, Pigeon, Dr. Brown, Como Tomo. Pigeon lang pinaka matino sa lahat, dun lang controlled yung pagdede niya (masyado mabilis flow ng Avent and Tommee Tippee kahit yung pinaka newborn size na teat pa, may incidences kami ng vomiting after dumede from these  bottles), tapos madaling hugasan kasi walang extra parts (ehem Dr Brown), madali hanapin sa stores, and hindi kasing mahal ng Como Tomo (nangangamoy rubber/silicon din yung milk btw, pero matibay to. 2nd choice ko to for my baby).

Anyway, my baby now is turning 2 next month, Pigeon Wide Neck pa rin gamit namin. :)

Post by: thatprettyghoul on November 20, 2019, 12:23:44 pm
@FayeP
Thank you! I did more research and even Cat Arambulo only had good things to say sa Comotomo. Nasa top 3 ko sya pero now namamahalan na ko. Yung NUK parang same din ng Comotomo na boob like feel nga daw. Tommee Tippee is the most underrated kasi I seldom see suggestions pero the ones I saw are positive naman. Btw, nakita ko sa isang thread na in labor ka na last night.. I hope everything went well. God bless you and your little one.

@iceheaven
Thank you! The more I read about Pigeon, mas naco convince ako. To be honest, 3rd choice ko lang sya at first. Pero ang dami nagre recommend even sa smartparenting at syempre binasa ko din description ng products. Bonus pa na yung price ay affordable, hindi sya over the top. I?ll buy a newborn starter kit plus their multi function sterilizer. Sana magustuhan ni baby dahil iba iba din naman preferences ng babies accdg to an article I read, we never really know pero sana makasundo nya ang Pigeon. Haha.

Sis thatprettyghoul, thank you sis, nakaraos na din, ok naman kame, nun 20 ako nanganak.

currently di pa namin nagamit mga bottles namin, kasi exclusive BF pa ako. We have a set ng tommee tippee, then yun avent na bigay ng mga officemates ko, saka un PUR bottles na nakuha ko sa baby fair.  Gusto ko try yung PUR muna kasi now pa lang kami gagamit nito, mukang maganda kasi eh

Hi Everyone,

I have made a list for those just like my self were asking what and how much to buy for the baby.
I also added some Mommy things that helped me and I think will be helpful during and after labor.
Hope this helps you!

Hi mga sis! Baka may marecommend kayong binder and carrier na comfortable and affordable. Hindi ko keri ang wink, lol. May binder ako dati na nabili ko ata kay inaymoments, kaso lang nung tumagal na sumasakit yung likod ko. May bakal kasi sya di ba, not sure kung lahat ng binder meron nito pero I think its purpose is to hold the binder in place. Pero iba kasi sa pakiramdam nung tumagal na, masakit talaga sa likod eh. Tia!

So far, konti palang nabibili ko na for NB ang size. Girl ang baby ko, pero I'm still planning to let her use her kuya's clothes na maayos pa kaso most of them for 3 mos and up na. Naipamigay ko na yung mga for NB.

For big items, stroller meron ako kakabili lang last year na halos hindi naman nagamit ni kuya. Crib nalang and yung co-sleeper siguro. Baka may marecommend din kayo nito, yung swaddle me side sleeper ni kuya nabenta ko na kasi dati para mabawasan yung kalat sa bahay.. Ang dami daming gamit kapag may baby, lol.

Title: Re: checklist: What to Buy for Baby II
Post by: exquisitegem on March 26, 2021, 05:42:33 pm
I am on the stage of planning what to buy na din for baby #2. Baby boy kasi, while my toddler is a girl. So exciting kasi iba yung gamit nya haha

^For the binder, tried and tested ko na ang wink kaya wala akong marerecommend na iba dahil hindi ako nakapagtry ng ibang brand. Wink helped me get back to my pre-pregnancy body kaya super recommended ko ang wink binder.

Eto ang nasa list ko to buy:
-Haaka
-Infant clothes na pangboy
-feeding bottles

Mas tipid ngayon kasi yung gamit ng eldest ko, like crib, stroller, rocker, e mga neutral colors. So hindi na ako magbuy.
I also have electric breastpump na so hindi na din.

Happy shopping sa atin mga mommies!
