My baby slings will be on SALE at the St. James Bazaar, Cuenca Covered Courts in Ayala Alabang.
A baby sling is a cloth baby carrier that allows you to carry your baby in multiple positons - from newborn carry to back carry. It's different from other baby carriers because it's lightweight, breathable and can be adjusted to create a personalized fit. It also distributes your baby's weight while being carried so no undue stress is placed on your baby's hips or spine. It also allows mothers to do chores or breastfeed hands free. (You can also use the tail to cover your baby so you can breastfeed discreetly).
Each sling makes use of imported durable cotton and rings which allows you to carry your baby until he/she weighs 35 pounds. (The rings, which have passed rigid testing in the United States, can actually carry up to 300 pounds but we recommend 35 pounds so as to protect mommy's back).
It usually priced at Php 1,000 but will be on sale at Php 899.95 only. Each sling comes with an instructional vcd.
My friend and I will also be introducing cloth diapers that are leakproof and stay dry. The diapers come in different sizes and are available in red, yellow, blue and army green.
It's better to use cloth diapers because:
1. it's economical - look at the cost of diapers (costs are assumed on the basis of 12 diaper changes per day, seven days a week, 365 days in a year)
Pampers comfort: Php 7 x 12 (if you change every two hours) x 365 (days in a year) = Php 30,660/year
Pampers Baby Dry Php 8.25 = (same computation as above) Php 36,135/year
Prokids Php 6 = Php 26,280/year
EQ Dry Php 6 = Php 26,280/year
Huggies Php 9 = Php 39,420/year
Kimbies Dry Php 6 = Php 26,280/year
Drypers Dry Php 7 = Php 30,660/year
2. It's healthier for your baby -
According to the Journal of Pediatrics, 54% of one-month old babies using disposable diapers had rashes. Plus cloth diapers don't contain toxic chemicals like SODIUM POLYACRYLATE (This is the chemical, added in powder form to the inner pad of a disposable, that makes it super-absorbent). DIOXIN (This is the chemical by-product of the paper-bleaching process, using chlorine gas, in the manufacturing of diapers). TRIBUTYL TIN (An environmental pollutant, considered highly toxic, that spreads through the skin and has a hormone-like effect in the smallest concentrations).
3. It's better for the environment - Disposable diapers promote aggressive consumption of both renewable and non-renewable resources and overburden landfills Do you know that it takes 550 years for disposable diapers to decompose?
And so isn't it the the right choice to switch to cloth?

And on to not so interesting news, let me just say that I managed to hold off peeing for two hours, even if I really, REALLY had to go.
Crim Law Review was right after Corpo and Dannycon was running a little late with his constant "Ba't nga ba tayo napunta don? Back to corpo" segues. So we were already 15 minutes behind schedule and I still had no idea where the class was. I planned on making a quick pitstop at the ladies' room and I was on my way when I asked Jomi where the class was. He didn't know either. So we ended up peeking at every classroom in the third and second floor until we found Sir Esguerra's class. By then it was too late to make that much needed bathroom break and the latecomers were made to sit right in front of the teacher's desk, so good luck in trying to sneak out.
Still, I forced myself to control my urges and repeatedly told my bladder: We shall overcome! And we did. Two hours I tell you. Now I know that with God, all things are possible :P
Yey to me!
