Mommy Milkshare Event Set to Benefit Fabella Milk Bank

It’s a well-known fact that breastfeeding is best for babies. The World Health Organization states why it is so on their website, and also emphasizes that breastfeeding benefits the mothers who choose to breastfeed their babies.

The reality is, though, that some mothers might not be able to breastfeed their children immediately after birth for legitimate medical reasons. There are also babies whose mothers may have passed away yet still need to be nourished with breastmilk.

In cases like these, milk donations or milksharing are usually the solution. It should be noted, though, that donor milk should be screened as much as possible, to ensure that it is safe and clean for the babies who will receive it.

If you’re a breastfeeding mom, or a mom who believes in the importance of breastfeeding, you will probably also consider milksharing or donating one’s breastmilk to be a noble endeavor. Here in the Philippines, human milk banks are actually always in need of breastmilk donations, so it is good to be aware of efforts to collect human milk – like the upcoming “Mommy Milkshare” event organized by The Parenting Emporium and Honeysuckle Philippines (which is actually on its second run; the first run was held in September last year.)

Scheduled for August 13, 2016 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Parenting Emporium (No. 29, 1st Street, New Manila, QC), breastfeeding mothers are invited to donate their excess breastmilk for the benefit of Fabella Human Milk Bank. Donors can choose to bring frozen breastmilk (must be expressed between June to August 2016) or express milk onsite.

In gratitude to the generous milk donors, VPharma’s Mega Malunggay, Mommy Treats, and Honeysuckle – brands that support milksharing – will be giving discounts on select items. Mommy Milkshare participants will also receive loot bags as a “bonus” for their kindness, which is why they are also asked to register for the event via 0917-8110821.

So, if you are a breastfeeding mom who wants to share her “milky blessings,” head on over to The Parenting Emporium this Saturday! Your efforts and kindness will help many babies who are supported by Fabella Human Milk Bank.

Note: If you want to donate breastmilk but can’t come to Mommy Milkshare, you may contact Nurse Katrina of The Parenting Emporium at 7253723 or 7386272, and ask how to donate to the TPE Milksharing Hub.

A book to sleep: Diego and Marie

Our second blog entry for A Book to Sleep. This time we read a book from Adarna House. 13720584_1081133035300933_66489231_o I got this book as a giveaway from our previous event with Educating for Life, it is a group that promotes homeschooling.🙂

This book is actually for children ages 6 and above, but since we read his old books over and over, I thought I can read it to him at least for a night. (We read this almost a month ago.)

This book will bring your kids to 5 different places.

The characters of the story are Marie (a cat) and Diego (a goat). These two are close friends. The story begins as this two starts to play a guessing game. Marie thought of a place that Diego will never ever guess. Marie tells Diego that this place is warm and cozy. Her friend’s first guess was the Restaurant’s Kitchen.

13692148_1081133021967601_1541220685_o

He told Marie that is the warmest place he had ever been. But Marie said that it’s not that place, the kitchen is way too hot. Next clue she gave was that it has a bell-ringing sound. Diego thought of a place he’d been with a bell-ringing sound. And he led her to it.

13728333_1081133011967602_1547502276_o

Diego brought Marie to the church because it has ringing bells! But, he was still wrong. The church’s bells rings too loud, and can’t be Marie’s home.

13694208_1081125548635015_124608371_o

Diego said that the game was too hard. Marie gave him another clue. It is warm, has a bell-ringing sound and is covered with hair. (‘Can you imagine now what’s this place?’ ) ;) 

Next stop is the Barber Shop. Diego said that it has chimes that rings and blowers that heats and there are hairs on the floor.

13692257_1081125531968350_1758318885_o

Still, Diego’s answer is wrong. Marie told him that her place has white hair not black. She gave her last clue — it gives her milk!

Diego finally knew what place he is guessing. He showed Marie the ice cream cart in the street. Diego said that ice creams have milk and the sweetest. It also has a bell that rings. But no warmth and white hair.

13728444_1081132995300937_1121742655_o

Finally, Diego gave in. He can’t seem to guess a place that has milk, warmth, white hair and a bell that rings. Marie gave Diego one last clue. This place smells exactly like her.

Diego smelled her and said Marie smelled like powder. Just then his nose caught the same smell. A mommy cat slowly came by.

13699342_1081132988634271_239503528_o

“A place can also be a spot like the arms of mom!”

This story will bring your kid around the community as they use their five senses. The sense of sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch.

Raix enjoyed the story. We read this for almost a week and not only before going to sleep.😀  He was pretty attached with the barber shop. Which also helped me to convince him to have his hair cut before the start of classes.

Mommies, for the whole story you may go check this Adarna Book on any local bookstores. Till our next book to sleep.
