For All Moms

We are sitting at lunch when my daughter casually mentions that she and her husband are thinking of “starting a family.” “We’re taking a survey,” she says, half-joking. “Do you think I should have a baby?” “It will change your life,” I say, carefully keeping my tone neutral. “I know,” she says, “no more sleeping […].....»»

Lifestyle reporting at 33.3 r.p.m.

I've always thought of "lifestyle" as the same as "culture," but with better shoes and a more interesting haircut.   Thirty-three years of covering subcultural bubblings from the fringe hasn't changed this view much.   Over the years, I have seen how what was once "alternative" is cannibalized and absorbed by the mainstream.   In 1985, when PDI was just aborning, punks were considered weird, even satanic. Now you can get your hair spiked and dyed in any neighborhood salon, and suburban moms are sporting sleeve tattoos.   The Baguio Arts Festival just after the Edsa 1 revolt was a collision of avant-garde art, rock & roll, a kind of anim...Keep on reading: Lifestyle reporting at 33.3 r.p.m......»»

Ex-‘PBB’ housemate Cora Waddell: Having a baby doesn’t mean you can’t work

  "I still have bills to pay," said model-turned-actress Cora Waddell when the Inquirer asked whether she planned to quit show business now that she was infanticipating. "Just because you have a baby or choose love doesn't mean you can't work. That's crazy!"   Cora said she had no intention of laying low at work, even though she was already five months pregnant. "I hear this a lot. But working moms should be treated the same way.

Breastfeeding mom lists the countries to visit—and those to avoid—with your child

I think about all the ways breastfeeding continues to help my kids. I breastfed my son Azul for three years and four months. I am breastfeeding my 11-month-old Emilia. Sometimes, I still pump breast milk for my now 6-year-old Azul. My favorite part of being a mother is breastfeeding my kids. Nothing compares to the perfect nourishment, comfort, and love that my baby receives when I breastfeed. But it also makes me anxious when I have to breastfeed in public. Some of my friends agree that breastfeeding in public is one of the most stressful things we have to do as moms. The "dalagang Pilipina" in me is always worried about making sure my breast is covered. I feel this huge pressu...Keep on reading: Breastfeeding mom lists the countries to visit—and those to avoid—with your child.....»»

How nursing mothers can help protect their babies from food allergies—expert tips

August 1 to 7 marksWorld Breastfeeding Week 2018, celebrated every year to encourage and support breastfeeding to help improve the health of babies around the world.
