What We Did During The Momzilla Fair

The 6th Momzilla fair, which is a two-day event was held at the Century City Mall in Makati last 23rd to 24th of September 2017.

The said fair was initially launched in October 2015 to bring together mom and baby products in one roof.  Momzilla PH does not only aim to empower the local selling industry but to also be a platform for both new and experienced parents to connect with one another and share the joys and challenges of parenthood.

These were the things Riri and I got busy with during the fair:

1. Shop. This time around, there were two floors of shopping space which were allotted for the fair. We enjoyed huge discounts and bargain on mom and baby essentials.

These milking bombs are the bomb! I have to limit myself to 1 to 2 cookies after every meal as what was indicated on the package. They are so good that I have to exercise restraint as I can eat an entire box in one sitting. What made them so effective is that they contain galactagogues which are for increasing milk production – rolled oats, flax seed, brewers yeast and fenugreek seeds. Instagram: @milkingbombsbyabc.

Beginnings Baby is the first all-White infant apparel brand which began with a very simple dream – to promote the usage of all-white clothing for infants aged 0-12 months. Backed by respected pediatricians, they believe that white garments are ideal for our babies until the day they turn one. Here are the reasons why your newborns should wear white: 1. Easier to spot stains and dirt 2. Easier to detect insects. 3. Clean and cool to the baby’s skin

2. Catch up with fellow mompreneurs.

My momma peg, Denise Gonzales-Bernardo was there to talk about Babywearing and Cloth Diapering. I chanced upon her while she’s at her Indigo Baby Shop booth. Aside from babywearing and cloth diapering, Denise is also an advocate of breastfeeding, co-sleeping and attachment parenting. She has her hands full these days running the IG @indigobabyshop, a one-stop shop for natural and organic baby products and IG @flowretreats, which is a boutique retreat company where yoga sessions and surf lessons form part of the itinerary. On top of that, she is a mom to two active boys. It is admirable that what she believes in, cascades in every aspect of her life – be it at home and in business. I hope to be like you someday, Denise!

“Creative play was never lost – perhaps drowned in the digital sea – but has always been around. We just need the right medium. We provide the flint, you do the play.” This what @olisboxship is all about. It is a monthly box of craft surprises delivered to your doorstep for kids aged 4-9. But they can come up with subscription boxes for toddlers, too. I can’t wait for Riri to be at an age where she can start appreciating these curated activities within the comforts of home. Stefanie, co-founder of the brand shared that they believe in creative play for kids by making it more accessible and engaging. And that through creative play, kids develop their intellectual and motor skills while honing their ability to express themselves. To subscribe, check out their IG account for instructions.

 

3. Attend the free talks by The Parenting Emporium. The talks that day were: Understanding Baby Cries, Baby Wearing and Cloth Diapering.21985616_10203748773876561_653707939_o
