Absolute and Disney Share Tips on How to Prepare a Fuzz-free Kiddie Party

Written by Akosi Nene Cristina at 4:05 PM 0 comments
The timing of this product's arrival is very good since I am also busy preparing for my son's first birthday.  At first, I thought that kiddie party is just as easy as ABC, but I am wrong.  First birthday preparation is like a debut preparation, you need to check every details. From the invitation, souvenirs, loot bags, venue, catering, photographers etc.

Anyways, planning for a kiddie party need not to be too much of a stress, especially having the end goal of making it fun, memorable, and simply giving your kid a knack of a good time. The first thing to remember is that any kind of party-planning requires work, but good planning with a timeline tracker makes it a whole lot easier to handle.

Puree Love: Feeding Your Baby the Healthiest Way

Written by Akosi Nene Cristina at 4:07 PM 0 comments
I may not have a baby of my own, yet, but my nephews grew with me.  So I know how to take  care of the young ones.  And the transition between milk to solid food is a fun time for mommies and Aunts everywhere. It’s the perfect time to experiment with fruits and vegetables as you slowly introduce new food groups to your child. :)

When it comes to feeding babies, mommies have long relied on pureed fruits and vegetables to get the job done. 
Below are some age-appropriate mommy puree favorites for every stage.

Baby applesauce for 4 months and above.  
With just the right amount of baby apples and a reliable food processor or blender, you can let your little one enjoy the many benefits of apples. Babies love its sweet taste while enjoying the abundance of vitamin C and fiber.

Advocacy: Epilepsy Awareness and its Impact to Society

Written by Akosi Nene Cristina at 11:00 PM 0 comments
It is not easy to grow up in a family with epilepsy.  As a child, every seizures became an unforgettable moments/ experiences of my life I can't forget.  Every accidents accompanied by seizure attacks ( head bumps, head cracks, burned hands, cracked bones and a lot more) remain crystal clear in my memories.  During those times, I was so afraid to go near that person; convulsing, throwing up saliva.  I always said "I wanna go to bed."

But as I grew up with that person, I learned how to take care of the situation.  Elders taught me what to do in case the attack happened when we're alone.  The most important thing to do is to ensure the safety of that person, to prevent the head from hitting the ground.

Awareness is one of the very important things to consider with this condition.   And with that, I am here to help PLEA spread this awareness to people who doesn't know about Epilepsy.  In the Philippines, we celebrated the National Epilepsy Day last September 1-6 with the theme: EPILEPSY: TIGIL ATAKE...TULAY SA TAGUMPAY.  The week was started off with Tripartite Symposium for Neurologists: MARIJUANA in Epilepsy held in Sulu Hotel last September 1.
This was a forum among neurologist to discuss the emerging issues on Medical Marijuana and to hopefully come out with a consensus statement on its role in the management of Epilepsy in the Philippines.
