^un swandle balnket kasi mas mahaba ng kaunti kasi pinababalot kay baby. Anyway pwede mo rin gamitin as receiving blanket.

+1 sa muslin blanket. Yan na ginamit namin as swaddle, also as blanket ni baby sa car. Until now gamit pa rin namin as blanket pag natutulog. Manipis lang material kaya swak sya sa Philippine weather
...all adventurous women do.

Hello Momshies,

Meron po ba sa inyong gagamit ng duyan? Ano kaya mas okay yung native duyan or yung hamock?

^ 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

^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.

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.

^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 :)

^^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.

Hi mommies, gano pala karami initial stock nyo ng newborn diapers? Want to buy sa Lazada kasi kaya lang out of stock na mga 1 pack nila. Available na lang yong maramihang stock around 200+ pcs. Tingin nyo mauubos ba yon or mabilis lang ba magsswitch ng size?
