I was one of the mommy bloggers to be invited to Johnson and Johnson Bedtime Discoveries last January 30, 2010. This event was hosted by celebrity mom, Tintin Bersola-Babao, who looked so radiant even when she was obviously about to pop! (She was scheduled for a Cesarean section the following day, due to placenta previa totalis.)
Here are some photos from the lecture proper:
growth hormone production.
To ensure that babies (and parents too) get a good night's sleep, the following routine is suggested, as demonstrated by expert midwives:
First, a warm bath or punas.
Johnson and Johnson has a complete line of products -- soap, baby wash, baby lotion, baby oil and baby powder-- that are especially made to help babies sleep better. You can use them for these 3 steps.
While I am no longer a newbie mom as I have 2 kids and have been hands-on with them, I still pick up something new in this lecture. Truly, the learning process never ends, especially for parents. I especially like the Q&A portion where moms were given the chance to ask questions (some of which I never thought to ask....or are too shy to ask!)
J&J also introduced their microsite: http://www.babycenter.com.ph/bedtime
. You may want to check it out. It contains some helpful information and tips about sleep in babies. There's also a sleep profiler, which I found really interesting. There's also a mommy corner where other moms share their experiences regarding their children's sleep. Oh, and you may also want to check out http://parentin.tv, the first Philippine online parenting show, hosted by Ms Tintin Bersola.
Parents nowadays are luckier, as we now have access to more knowledge and have more resources on hand, and can network and share tips with other parents.
