The Digital Business Summit 2014

I came from a very business oriented family. My parents taught us that having a business is better than working for someone else. But in today’s standards, just knowing how to run a physical business is not enough. Social media is the way to go, and if you don’t market your business online, you may be missing on a lot of things.

The Lakas-Maka-OC Way of Storing Breastmilk

I am not OC. Well, I am just particular about some things being in order, but I am not OC about everything. But when it comes to my son’s milk, I am very, very OC. You can’t blame me or any mother out there for storing our milk in a very orderly manner. Before I share how I store my breastmilk, let me first share with you this guideline from Medela.

Our Breastfeeding Story

My friend Sef, who’s been helping and mentoring me on breastfeeding, told me one time to share my breastfeeding milestones on Breastfeeding Pinays. It is a Facebook group specially dedicated to breastfeeding moms. Seriously, if you are a breastfeeding mom, or a mixed feeding or pure formula feeding mom, you should join the group because you will really learn a lot. A strong support system is very important when you are breastfeeding. I just lurk around that group. I don’t post nor comment, I just read to learn. Whenever I have questions and milestones, I send Sef a message on Whatsapp. Finally, I decided to share my story.
