Specially made for breastfeeding moms: Nestle MommaLove Lactation Milk

June 24, 2020



Hiya, rookie mommas!

I received a very special gift today coming from our friends from Nestle and it made me reminisce back to when I was breastfeeding Arya.

It wasn’t easy.

I struggled a lot and I was in such a depressed state because I was just really all over the place when I started my motherhood journey. I remember the days when I would consume a lot of malunggay leaves, eat loads of Tinola, and bought a lot of malunggay capsules. - Nothing really helped me. I was just not happy with the result and it made me more depressed and thus my milk supply slowed down. 

I decided to stop breastfeeding at 4 months but I still did try to mix feed until the 6th month mark.


That was 5 years ago. If I have the chance to do it all over again, I will not give up that easily.


There weren't enough options at that time when it comes to lactation aids which is why I find the moms of today’s generation are really lucky to have so many options to help them with breastfeeding.




Nestle has recently released the new MommaLove Lactation Milk and I was beyond excited! I honestly wish I was pregnant again.

The new Nestle MommaLove Lactation Milk are specially for our breastfeeding mommas who want to get more out of their milk aids. It can also be your other source of Iron, Folate, Calcium, and Fiber.

It is a low-fat powdered milk drink with wheat flakes and has 1,200mg of Malunggay - a known galactogogue which may help in lactation and comes in two variants: Vanilla and my fave, Choco. Yum!




A box of Nestle MommaLove Lactation Milk has 10 sachets that is good for single serving at 28 grams.



Since I love anything that’s Chocolate, I had to try it for myself and honestly even though I’m not pregnant nor breastfeeding as of the moment, I still enjoyed it.







It wasn’t super sweet. Just okay for my liking. It tasted like a cocoa type of chocolate drink and I’d love it as a hot and cold beverage.

One thing that I love about this is that since they come in a form of sachets and not big boxes or tin cans, it’s perfect for moms on the go and for those who need to travel with their kids. It’s not a hassle to just slip it inside your office bag or momma bag.

If I had the Nestle MommaLove Milk Lactation 5 years ago, I swear I would have thrived in breastfeeding.

Maybe next time, when another tiny human came along, I’d hoard this product for sure!


The Nestle MommaLove Milk Lactation is now available in Mercury Drug Nationwide and Shopee at SRP of P35.00 per sachet, or P350.00 per box with 10 sachets.

I’m happy and thankful to Nestle for sending these over and sharing these to the moms of First Time Moms PH.

How to get germ protection that is gentle for your sensitive skin



How to get germ protection that is gentle for your sensitive skin
Dermatologist reveals why micellar technology a vital ingredient you should add to your skin regime


Do you have sensitive skin? A lot of people who have this experience reactions such as itching, burning, or redness when it comes into contact with skin care products that trigger their skin’s sensitivities. Antibacterial products may not be the first thing that comes to mind but areas of dry, flaky skin or swollen skin can actually be an entry point for germs. 

Given today’s uncertain times, we need to be able to give our skin the germ protection it deserves. Thankfully, the new breakthrough Safeguard Gentle Micellar Face and Body Cleanser is here so we no longer need to compromise between getting gentle skin care and germ protection for our face and body!

The Safeguard Gentle Micellar series is paraben free, offers 99.9% germ protection and is as gentle as fresh water on the skin with its Micellar technology. It also has three variants:  Unscented, Berries & Pear and Coconut & Peach to suit your sensitive skin needs.

As we continue to navigate through our new normal, here are simple ways you can keep your sensitive skin happy, germ protected, and functioning at its healthiest according to  board-certified dermatologist, founder of Derm HQ and co-founder of BeautiqueMD Dr. Gaile Robredo-Vitas.

  1. Less is always more. One of the best ways you can care for your sensitive skin is to make sure you don’t overuse your face and body. Washing or exfoliating it too much may weaken your skin’s barrier, allowing external irritants such as dirt, dust and other bacteria to penetrate the skin easily.
  2. Make sure to read the ingredients in the products you want to try. The best way to manage sensitive skin is to identify and avoid products that contain ingredients that trigger its sensitivity. Products that are paraben free and dermatologically tested can be considered. If you’re experiencing pre-existing skin conditions, it is also important to consult with your doctor or dermatologist. 
  3. Strengthen your skin’s first line of defense with Micellar technology. Micellar consists of purified water, hydrating moisturizers and gentle surfactants that amply work on sensitive skin too. One of the most vital ingredients in Micellar water is micelles—these are minuscule concentrated molecules that are both water-loving and oil-loving. These help ensure the skin’s moisture remains intact as it cleanses one’s skin.

Give your skin the #GentleGermProtection it needs today! Check it out in Lazada http://tiny.cc/SafeguardGentle and supermarkets nationwide.

Tired of cooking? Check out Kitchen City Frozen Meals!

June 3, 2020


Hiya, mommies! How are and your family doing while we are under GCQ? Hope everything is well on your end.

Just dropping by for a quick blog post, in case you are like me who have been cooking nonstop since the beginning of lock down, I am guessing that we are all tired or wanted to take a break form our own personal cooking.

I came across Kitchen City Frozen Meals on Facebook two days ago. It was a recommendation of my Father-in-law and so I immediate checked them out and discovered that they offer wide menu of frozen meals! Since my husband goes back to work this week, I'll only be cooking mostly for me and Arya at home and my husband would prepare his packed meals every night. So I thought, we could try Kitchen City Frozen Meals for a day or two.

And so, I've been craving for LAING for a very looong time and was very pleased that they have it on their menu.




LAING WITH CRISPY PORK - 600 grams - Php 250.00
The serving is really BIG. This would actually last me for more than a week!
It's good that they provide an expiration date on the label as well.




BEEF SALPICAO - 600 grams - Php 425.00

There is a corresponding delivery fee for each city. See below:



The payment options: BPI/BDO Online, GCASH, PAYPAL, and COD. Here's the rest of their menu as of June 2, 2020


I am impressed by how fast their delivery is. I placed the order before the 5pm cut-off yesterday (June 2, 2020) around 4:50PM, made the payment via online-mobile bank deposit. I was told that delivery will arrive anytime between 9am - 7pm the next day. (June 3, 2020). My order arrived 10:30am. Perfect for lunch time!

As for the taste? I'll keep you guys posted on my Instagram stories! *wink
