Smart Parenting Baby Shower 2014

 It was an eventful Sunday for me as I attended this year's installment of Smart Parenting magazine's Baby Shower held at the Crown Plaza Hotel Ruby Room.

I came with my hubby (whom I want to thank as he drive me all the way to Ortigas amidst the Pacquiao-Algeiri fight) but since husbands/companions aren't allowed inside the hall, he just drop me at the event and wonder around the mall while the event is on going. :)

Upon entering the venue, I went straight to the registration area. I was among the few who went early but someone else beat me to snug the early bird prize. hehe

 After signing in, we were asked to roam around and check out the products of some major sponsors. They let us in the hall at around 10:30am.
{Baby Care+, which is a Tupperware brand includes baby and kid friendly lotion, cologne and wash.}

Everyone who signed up at the Tupperware Brand stall got the chance to pick a prize. I got a small size Baby Care+ lotion (which is also included in the loot bag).

{Refreshing stage style.}
 The event started by a short story of Smart Parenting's Mia. She is also pregnant, expecting her third child. Then, the first speaker took the stage. Aurelin Fernando, a certified Doula from Gentle Hands Birthing Clinic talked on Newborn Care. She showed us how to properly bath a newborn, how to burp the baby and what to pack for the hospital.

 I find this topic very interesting as I have zero experience in bathing a baby. My husband got to bathe his younger siblings but with assistance of their mother. I thought it will be nerve-wracking to bathe my own child but thanks to Aurelin, she explained and showed us how simple it can be.

After the talk, the lunch was served. Talking to other expectant moms over lunch is a joy to remember. We shared our own experiences, the first few quickening even the time how we discovered we are pregnant.

 Shortly after lunch, we talked about being healthy and fit before, during and after pregnancy.

 Then, we also get to know the advantages of Baby sign language. It will make it easy to communicate with our child if they could learn how to sign.
{Guest speaker, Que Gavan, talks about the importance of Baby Sign Language.}
 Apparently, there are some suggested signs to use when teaching your baby the sign language but you can definitely make your own.

{Tissue Paper Game}
Aside from interesting talks, there are also fun games we all participated in. One of which is the tissue paper game. Each tablemates were to select a representative. The members will then dress up their table representative using a roll of tissue paper. We were also given color pens and tapes to somehow "decorate" and "style" our creation. For each game, winners (and participants) got to bring home a loot from the event's major sponsors.

As they say, they won't let anyone go home without a loot. So they gave all of us a stem of rose and a lootbag containing sample of their major sponsors. I also won a minor raffle prize from Tickles and Giggles. Overall, I had fun attending this event. I learned a lot about taking care of my body and our baby, which I will share with hubby. Thank you, Smart Parenting, for having us. More power!
