Euky Bearub Review + Blessing Giveaway

Euky Bearub Review

I'm so blessed to received a sample of Euky Bearub from Koofty Enterprise for testing and review. To be honest, chest rub is not part of our baby essentials. We used to have a vapor rub but we don't use it for the kids. My kids have a very sensitive skin and I am not confident in using it to them. I was reluctant to try this at first but upon checking the label and seeing that it is gentle on most sensitive skin, I felt assured.

Is it Safe to Breastfeed when Pregnant?

This is a sponsored post. 

Is it Safe to Breastfeed when Pregnant?

Many moms get pregnant while still breastfeeding. This happens for several reasons. Sometimes, couples want their children to be close when it comes to their age so they decide to get pregnant again when the baby is a bit older. Others have unexpected pregnancy but gladly take it as a blessing while the mother still breastfeeds her toddler.

Whatever the reason is, breastfeeding while pregnant is perfectly fine. There are myths that say breastfeeding while pregnant isn’t safe and can cause the mother at risk of miscarriage – there is no medical evidence for that. However, moms may experience a little challenge while breastfeeding during pregnancy such as nipple sensitivity during the early pregnancy, which can cause sensitivity while breastfeeding.

When you plan to continue to breastfeed while pregnant, remember that you have to work on your diet to make sure your body produces the nutrients that both your toddler and your unborn baby need since you’re now caring for three. It is important to stay hydrated by drinking 8-12 glasses a day.

Doctors say that when a woman is pregnant, her milk taste changes due to the production of colostrum. This can either make the toddler like your milk even more or the complete opposite that will lead your toddler to wean from breastfeeding on his own.

If you are uncertain of what to do, it is still best to talk to your doctor about it.

World Vision Launches Caring for Communities Program

World Vision Launches Caring for Communities

International child-focused organization World Vision recently launched its newest initiative for sustainable community development in the Philippines - Caring for Communities.

Caring for Communities is a recurring gift program that allows donors to contribute to a cause that is most meaningful to them and the community that they support.

The program is focused on funding World Vision’s Economic Development, Child Protection, and Disaster Preparedness programs. The three programs represent three tiers of monthly recurring donations.

Building sustainable livelihoods

World Vision Launches Caring for Communities

For at least 500 pesos a month, donors can help families increase their capacity to provide the basic needs of their children. 

Through various economic development programs, World Vision aims to increase the productivity on agri-fishery through natural farming methods, link small businesses to markets, provide skills training for employment or entrepreneurship to parents and youth, and give parents and caregivers access to basic savings and credit services to reduce shocks from financial distress. 

Keeping children safe

If donors choose to donate a minimum of 400 pesos a month, they will be able to empower communities to prevent and respond to violence affecting children by strengthening child protection mechanisms. 

Programs under this tier help increase children's knowledge about their basic rights and responsibilities, provide opportunities for children to be involved in their local communities' child protection councils, increase the awareness of teachers, parents, and local community leaders on important child protection issues, and orient and train children and community leaders on child protection laws and how to handle child protection cases.

Preparing for disaster

Equally important and highly relevant to the Philippine terrain is World Vision’s disaster risk reduction programs. For as low as 300 pesos a month, donors will be able to help reduce the impact of natural disasters and improve the resilience of the communities affected. 
World Vision’s disaster risk reduction programs aims to help schools and communities establish child-focused disaster risk reduction measures, identify and establish functional early warning systems in communities, strengthen the capacity of community members to prevent, mitigate, and prepare for the negative impacts of hazards, and immediately provide life-saving assistance to the most vulnerable during disasters.

Sixty years and beyond

This 2017, as World Vision celebrates 60 years of caring for children and building sustainable communities, the organization strives to give individuals more opportunities to help and share their blessings through the Caring for Communities program. 

With more donors and partners, World Vision is drawn closer to its goal of reaching 3 Million children by 2020.
