4 Years with Philips Avent

It's been 4 years since I started patronizing Philips Avent and their products never let me down. 

I first got my Philips Avent Newborn set for Mhia, my first born, before I gave birth to her on June 2008. I received few negative comments/feedback about having big bottles that won't fit a baby's grip, something like that. But I've stuck with my decision because I know the product better than those who threw negative comments. Eventually, they realize I got the best quality products a mom could wish for.

During those time, back in 2008, there were no support group for expectant and breastfeeding moms. I only knew pregnant & prenatal program from Makati Medical Center, Pregnancy & Beyond. Or, maybe, there were some but not as active like the support groups nowadays, like Mommy Mundo, Medela Moms and programs/events by Mothercare and Philips Avent, and a lot more.

Too sad I was only able to breastfed my daughter for less than 2 months even with all the efforts, and supplements I was taking. I also took all the advises on what food to take to increase milk supply but to no avail. During that time, breastfeeding cookies & muffins weren't available yet.

But for my 2nd child, Dominic, it was different. I was able to breastfeed him longer than his sister without taking any supplement in the form of capsule. I've done some research. I've taken food that helped me increase my milk supply like oatmeal, Anmum Lacta and food with galactagogues such as breastfeeding cookies & muffins from Mommy Treats by Mommy Paola.

I believe these helped in increasing my supply that there was a need for me to use Avent Breast Shells and I was able to breatfeed Dominic for 5 months. I was hoping I could extend but stress from work kept me from producing more supply.

Dom at 10 mos
From 2008, every year I get to buy new Avent product/s. I was able to keep their packaging except for the 2 (two) 11oz honey-tinted bottles.

If I'm not mistaken, Mhia got total of 12 Avent bottles: 5 - 4oz, 5 - 9oz & 2 - 11oz. For Dominic, I only got him 6 Blue Avent bottles plus the 2 Avent bottles we got from Philips Avent Christmas Party loot bag. I didn't buy additional bottles for Dominic since her can still use his Ate Mhia's bottles. Mhia will turn 4 this June, eventually she'll stop drinking milk from the bottles and start drinking milk from the glass. :) 

I'm so thankful with Philips Avent for providing my family with utmost care through their products. :)

Philips Avent will always have my unending support. Now, even my cousins use Philips Avent products for their babies. :) Tried & Tested! ;)

3 Winnings from PisoBid in a day

Yesterday, while going thru Metrodeal's website, I saw a promo for PisoBid's 12 Bids Pack. Out of curiousity, I visited PisoBid's website.

I got so excited when I found out that I can get an item I really want as low as 1.01. But, of course, I need to purchase "Bids" as low as P200 for 12 Bids.

I registered and I got 5 bonus bids for signing up.

Before bidding, you should come up with an strategy not to waste your purchased bids.

At first, I lost with the 2 items I was bidding for. Then the next thing I knew, I won 3 items for today. The 1st item I won this morning was 50 Bids + P500 Toys-R-us Card. Then early this afternoon, I won 50 Bids + P500 Starbucks. I was so happy & excited knowing that I'm a first-timer with biddings! :)

I thought I shouldn't be abusing my luck so I decided to have 1 more bid before I get addicted to it. Hahaha. Whether I win it or not, it'll be my last bid for the day. And, lucky me, I won the bid for 50 Bids + P500 KFC Gift Card. :)

For now I'll stop. I'll save my bids for the most important item I know I really need. :)

Want my share of Potato Corner's trio

I'm a fan of Potato Corner's trio fries because it has the 3 flavors me (Sour Cream), my hubby (BBQ) & my daughter, Mhia (Cheese) loves. We always buy our share at the Glorietta branch.

Just today, before going home after work, I dropped by the Potato Corner at Paseo Center. It was my first time to purchase the trio at that branch.
I was kinda frustrated because I was given a little of every flavored fries. It was like I have eaten them halfway. I can even count the sour cream flavored fries - 14pcs plus 3 little pcs. :(

So frustrating... I'm still going to buy the trio but not at the Paseo Center branch.

I joined a lot of promos and I can't really remember most of them, especially those old ones. So I wasn't that excited when I got the letter from Hand Interactive last Saturday till I opened it.

I won a Mini speaker for registering, not sure though if through email or mobile. Hahaha.

Sign up now for redtag mobile deal alerts and you might win P10,000 cash! :)

Thank you,! :)

Thank God for all his blessings. :)
