Mommies, may GT friend ako na nagpapatanong kung until what age ni baby pwedeng hindi na gumamit ng steam sterilizer for the bottles and other feeding accs? Thanks so much! :)

Jen, ikaw ba yung may quinny zapp? Ok ba? Parang gusto ko yung nasa FN marketplace eh. 2nd hand for 10k. Parang biglang type ko lang.

Van, same here. Type ko din ang Maclaren. Yan ang dream stroller ko for my baby talaga, kahit nga hindi pa ko preggy. Pero parang tingin ko kay K, sya yung tipo na pag nakakalakad na (malapit na to) eh ayaw na magstroller. Hehe.

Pansin ko lang, hindi na ako ganun ka brand conscious ngayon compared nung first few months ni K. Tipid mode na talaga! Hehe.

Dati gusto ko din ng maclaren pero nung tinest drive ko yung techno xlr, it felt flimsy.  :( mas sturdy yung peg perego pliko p3 kaya yon ang inili namin. A bit cheaper than the xlr.

Pansin kasi namin sa maclaren yung vertical frame niya naka-slant (eh di hindi na vertical ano  ::) ) kaya siguro parang tataob pag nagsabit ng bag sa handles. At ang liit ng basket!

Gusto ko din talaga yung quinny buzz dati aso namahalan kami. Eh yung nasa marketplace na zapp 10k lang kaya parang gusto ko. Ang sleek kasi talaga ng design ng mga quinny.

Tin - Actually andame naman kase talaga mas important kesa brands. Hinde lang tayo makatiis heehee

Lisa - Yun din comment ko sa Maclaren, it looks flimsy. I'm sure it works well with a lot of moms pero gusto ko pa din yung comfy si Zoe sa padding ng stroller.

Brendz - Diba nakakaloka. Minsan pa I swear tinatamad mag-isip mas gusto pang magtanong ng magtanong and I get irritated with trainees like that. Hinde ko napapigil barahin paminsan-minsan.

Naku! Kwento ko lang, I was having a tax training in January, tapos ang trainer is one of my colleague na specialist din. Aba naman sabi ng isang trainee, "pwede bang ulitin na lang natin yung training pag may tulog na kami?" Nakakabaliw!!! Pinipigil ko ang sarili ko na wag barahin yung trainee. Ano akala niya kame may tulog? Loko loko talaga! Napaka notorious pa ng trainee na yun dahil laging may agent feedback sa akin yun. Tsk tsk. Ang nasabi ko na lang ng pataray, "ay sorry. isang beses lang to. hindi kasi kami talaga available palagi, busy din kame." Naku!!!!

Lisa - yeah ako yung may quinny zapp kaso nasa cousin ko na, binili niya. Pinadalhan kase kame ni SIL ng stroller halos similar sa zapp na "nano" tatak (australian brand), yun gamit ni baby ngayon. Di nga lang siya girly color not like the quinny zapp (pink) na nabili namin pero okay lang kase di naman pala masyado trip ni baby nakasakay sa stroller :-( But, I'm still wishing na sana pag toddler na siya eh gusto niya sumakay kase kung hindi, kumusta naman mga braso ko!  ;D

Mukhang ako ang oldest sa mommies dito. ;)

Tin, noong 2 years old na ang twins, nag-stop na kaming mag-sterilize.  Wala namang nangyaring masama.  I don't recall my children ever having diarrhea or amoebiasis or LBM.

Pedzinc ang vitamins ng kids ko from 1-2 1/2 years old.  Ceelin with zinc sila ngayon.

Brenda, are you a tax compliance specialist?  Tax kasi is one of my fields of specialization (the other being corporate law) kaya ko naitanong. ;)

Regarding strollers,  my vote goes to Maclaren.  Super sulit sa amin ang Twin Techno stroller.  Laspag na laspag nga.  Pero, marami ng ibang choices sa market at hindi ako updated kaya baka may mas maganda pa.

Van, nagpunta ako sa Chanel counter sa Rustan's Makati yesterday.  Paging Grayce!  Naku, hindi ako makatulog sa Rose Tourbillon blush (na pinalagpas ko when I was in Bangkok eh mas mura doon) at Teint Innocence na foundation.  Dapat talaga hindi ako nagpupunta sa Let's Primp and Prettify na threads eh.  Kaya, parang ayoko na bumisita sa S & R sale LOL para may funds ako for makeup. ;)

Cha!!! do i know you? hehe :) my god, mukhang maliit ata talaga mundo ko.

regarding vitamins, ayaw ng pedia ni katie na ipavitamins siya. mas maganda daw na nakukuha niya ang nutrients in a natural way. kasi pag nagvitamins daw parang nagiintroduce kami ng artificial vitamins kay baby.

regarding brands and strollers. hay nako, kung ako lang, okay na ko sa graco mirage. kaso, si ej ang brand conscious! siya may gusto nung maclaren xlr and since siya naman bumili, wala na akong nagawa. ang sabi pa sakin 14k lang daw yun, pagcheck ko sa mall, jusmiyo! 14k plus 10k pala. para lang talaga hindi ko siya maquestion. hehe i noticed nga sa maclaren yang mejo nahuhulog siya pag sinasabitan ng diaper bag. umbrella type kasi eh. ang solusyon lang jan eh i-lock yung wheels sa likod. very true na maliit ang basket niya kaya plastic cover lang ng stroller ang nailalagay ko dun. pero madami naman siya pockets sa likod kaya dun ko nilalagay ibang stuff madalas. the xlr has its cons pero good thing about it naman is its compact and lightweight tsaka very easy to maneuver. madali magu-turn. hehe at bagay na bagay naman sa prinsesita namin ang trono niyang pink and choco brown combination. terno pa sa diaper bag niya.

pero hindi ako naghuhugas kamay sa pagiging brand conscious pag kay baby. particular din naman ako doon minsan pag sa damit and toiletries. :p

@marose: kaya ako, i stopped lurking sa primp and prettify thread at fn marketplace since 2 years ago. minsan lang napapadaan ako. :D

syempre ang intro ko kanina sa asawa ko may crazy idea nanaman ako. pinakita ko yugn zapp sa nasa marketplace. tiningnan lang ako ng masama. matakot na ako sa tingin.

tapos kagabi nung inaayos ko yung stuff na binili ko sa mothercare para mapalabhan na, sabi niya pag daw hindi siya pumapayag na may bilhin ako para sa sarili ko, puro para kay baby binibili ko makapag-shopping lang.  ;D eh sabi ko i take what i can get. ganyan ako pag may-itch to shop.  ;D

pero yung balenciaga na yon iniisip ko pa din...  :(

jen, di nar-recline yung zapp pero i like it kasi compact daw when folded, kasya sa overhead bin sa airplane. eh sabi ng asawa ko pwede naman i-gate check ang stroller bakit pa namin ilalagay sa overhead bin. may point naman siya! naghahanap lang ako ng excuse talaga. like ko pa yung zapp na ito na for sale kasi orange, which is my 2nd favorite color next to yellow.

maclaren is a good brand naman talaga. and i think yung flimsy feeling is because of the fact that it is lightweight. ganon din kasi yata yung mga combi, parang flimsy pero kaya ganon kasi lightweight. yung peg perego medyo mabigat kaya feeling sturdy.

ang mga strollers na pinagpilian namin - chicco cortina (bulky), bugaboo bee (over budget), quinny buzz (over budget), mothercare spin (ok sana kaso 2 parts pag collapse, kailangan tanggalin yung seat bago ifold yung frame), maclaren techno xlr and peg perego pliko. among all those, ang pinaka-gusto ko idrive are yung peg perego and bugaboo eh over budget nga si bugaboo so kay peg perego ang bagsak namin. pero ang ganda kasi talaga ng dating ng itsura ng quinny eh.

eh oh well. pg perego na lang.

kim, umbrella type din yung peg perego pero hindi siya nagtopple-over kahit madaming nakasabit sa likod. i think it's with the frame talaga. pinagisipan mabuti ng asawa ko yan eh. ina-anlyze niya bakit bumabaliktad yung techno (bumaliktad kasi talaga nung sinubukan namin).

^sis lisa, kung ako lang nasunod, i would have wanted peg perego din. dami ko nakitang ganun sa jakarta nung trip ko last nov. but i was budget conscious, kaya i scouted for graco mirage. only to find out na sky is the limit pala ang budget ni ej for stroller. siya daw kasi magtutulak nun, so dapat maporma ang stroller... ???

now that i have gotten used to it, i love it na. kasi nga may solution naman sa parang pagtaob niya pag may nakasabit na diaper bag. and the reason why it feels flimsy nga eh kasi its lightweight. moreover, i really love the color that he got. :D ako kasi bumili ng diaper bag and without us talking, naging terno ang carters diaper bag and the stroller.

on a sidenote, san meron peg perego dito?

^ haha, kim. sana stokke binili niya. i tried it sa mothercare last sunday. purple pa yung display, very nice! and ok talaga kasi eye-level kayo ni baby so you can interact while pushing. pero kasi 70k eh. siguro if it were in the bugaboo bee-quinny buzz range, kahit over budget, baka pinagpilitan ko yon. hehe.

ako naman, i wanted a stroller na black. lahat black. stroller is black (midnight blue actually pero almost black na), diaper bag is black, carseat is black (and grey, naubusan kasi ako nung limited edition chicco proxima black label na yes, black  ;D ). i would have wanted a black playard also but had to consider the color scheme of the nursery so i ended up with green and brown. tapos ngayon, natutuwa ako sa orange na quinny zapp na yan.

we got our peg perego sa rustan's. it was 21k while the techno xlr was 23k yata. i think may peg perego na din sa babyland. sayang lang kasi may new release ang peg perego na pwedeng parent-facing, wala pa here.

As much as possible, ayokong magsabit ng gamit or maglagay ng stuff sa stroller.  Pet peeve ko yung mga stroller na nilalagyan ng diaper bags at shopping bags. >:(


Kim, pareho hubbies natin.  Si hubby ko rin ang pumili ng stroller.  What is it with men and Maclaren strollers?  Pero gusto ko rin yun actually.

have you tried pushing a stroller with a shoulder bag on your shoulder? na heavy? plus a diaper bag pa? bakit hindi isabit kung pwede namang isabit?

when i am pushing the stroller, i find it easier to push it without my bag bothering my shoulder tapos minsan nahuhulog pa. better to sabit the bag sa stroller than to let hubby carry my bag. eh pano pag si yaya nag-push ng stroller tapos dala niya pa diaper bag? sometimes i bring snacks for yaya also, so san naman niya ilalagay yon eh di sa basket ng stroller.

the skip hop diaper bags have loops designed para madaling isabit sa stroller handles.

now strollers being used as sabitan lang o lagayan ng gamit, tapos karga si baby, that is what i don't like.

but this is just me.
