MomBrandLove: My Little Adventurer

MomBrandLove is the newest category on this blog. This is in awe of mompreneurs who lovingly put a lot of effort in their business along with juggling tasks for kids, husband, the home and everything in between! I hope that my blog will be an avenue for other moms to discover mom-made products. Moms support moms, yeah!

It’s amazing when motherhood pushes us to be more than what we are destined for. I’ve seen businesses and brands come about because these ladies saw the need for such products when they became mothers. Contrary to what others say that life stops when you have kids, these mompreneurs are testimonies that combining business and motherhood is possible, especially if your inspiration for your product is your kid. Just like this mompreneur who developed My Little Adventurer.

Angela Poulain left a promising career in the Philippines, packed all her things and moved to London with her husband in her 36th week of pregnancy! After a month in a new country, she gave birth to Theo and all her plans of applying for another job flew out the window. Being a stay-at-home mom, she wanted to spend a lot of quality and meaningful time with her son. Sure they go to parks, play with manipulatives and read books, but how can she encourage her son to be welcoming of technology? She got the idea of creating an app that would encourage a love for reading and get the child and parents interacting! After 6 months of studying Mobile App Development online, researching and taking care of a baby, My Little Adventurer was born!

Meet Angela!

Angela’s journey is nothing short of amazing! Imagine having to learn something completely different from what you’re used to doing all the while taking care of a baby! She is such an inspiration! I’ve tried using the app with Z and he loves that he is the main character in the story! Making him in-charge of what will happen in helps in building his confidence!

As with all start-up projects funding is the inevitable issue. So, with all your help, please share and donate to My Little Adventurer’s Kickstarter page!

One big plus from buying from mompreneurs is that you know they only sell products they use and believe in. They walk the talk and personal advocacy plays a big part on their brands. Tiffany Tuazon is one of those mompreneurs I know I could really trust!

Tipay is the one distributing K’Tan and BabyLeaf products in the country. And she started doing this when she was still preggy with her daughter Gab! The nesting game was so strong with this one that she became a entrepreneur in an instant! I’m thoroughly grateful for her helping me learn how to babywear Y because it helped me multi-task and go about my day! There were even nights that only being in the K’Tan put my baby to sleep! These products, and more which are in line with Tiff’s advocacy in breastfeeding, attachment and purposeful parenting are available in The Nest: Attachment Parenting Hub.

We still use the K'Tan up to now! And the K'Tan Baby Bag is a lifesaver!

And just recently she launched her website which has articles from parenting to business hacks to her personal realizations! I especially loved stories with her daughter Gab in it!

MomBrandLove: Registered Nanay

MomBrandLove is the newest category on this blog. This is in awe of mompreneurs who lovingly put a lot of effort in their business along with juggling tasks for kids, husband, the home and everything in between! I hope that my blog will be an avenue for other moms to discover mom-made products. Moms support moms, yeah!

I met Mommy MJ in a playgroup where both our kids were enrolled. Even then, I knew she was something else, because aside from being a hands-on mom to Aio, she was also working as a night-shift nurse. I think we made a connection because we were both breastfeeding moms. I love how breastfeeding makes moms closer! She says that even before giving birth, breastfeeding was her only option to nourish her child. And up to now, she’s breastfeeding her second-born.

Registered Nanay offers cookies and cupcakes which has galactagouges to increase the production of breastmilk.

Registered Nanay is MJ’s fourth baby (the first one being their cat!). This business came about because she had to resign from her post as a nurse because of yaya problems (we’ve all been there!) Baking has been her hobby since she was young and to incorporate it into her breastfeeding advocacy is combining passion and purpose in one. And if you want a guarantee that her lactation treats work, MJ has been awarded as the top breastmilk donor in the hospital she was working for!

Y loves it too!

My favorites are the Banana Nutella Muffins and Cheese Muffins. They look like the usual pastries but with the power to increase breastmilk, without the bitter aftertaste. It is so good that one time, a helper served it to my FIL’s guests and they finished it! Of course, no harm was done to them as it is safe to eat for everyone!

I like the idea of the Milky Bites – a no-bake lactation treat that you’ll just have to mix for yourself! Perfect for those travelling or as a gift to a new breastfeeding momma! Prices range from P300- P450, which is not that expensive. And given that it’s from the kitchen of a wondermom, you know you’re getting your money’s worth!
