Baby Care Plus Review + Giveaway (CLOSED)

As a first time mom,  I always keep my options open for baby essentials. I wanted to try different products in hopes of finding the perfect match for my baby’s skin. Before I gave birth, I was gifted with a set of Tupperware baby care plus that I was able to use on my baby when we got home from the hospital.

I was hesitant to use it at first because Tupperware was not known for making baby essentials. One night Chuck had a big poop explosion. Something that the wet-wipes department can’t handle. So we used the baby bath and gave Chuck a quick shower. We immediately noticed that it is really mild and left our baby with no rashes or any signs of irritation.

I personally love the  Baby Care Plus+ Bath because it smells good even after several hours. I am glad that Tupperware released a bigger size that comes with a pump for easy dispensing. It’s easier to use because I don’t have to worry about spills. Saves me money and time too! Baby Care Plus+ Bath has Lamesoft Skin Protector that forms a natural barrier around baby’s skin to protect it while gently cleansing. It’s mild formula won’t irritate your baby’s delicate skin. You’ll definitely enjoy every cuddling moment with your little one because of the mild scent that stays on your baby’s hair and body.

I must admit that Tupperware proved me wrong in doubting this product just because it is fairly new compared to the brand that we also bought for our baby (same brand that my mother used when I was a baby). I am glad I tried Baby Care Plus.

How Ketogenic Diet Changed My Life

Just like other women, I battled depression because of the pressure brought by some family members and friends because they thought I couldn’t bear a child. If Migs wasn’t supportive, I wouldn’t be able to get over it. I have shared my experience thru a blog post that I published last year. It was comforting to read comments from strangers who expressed their support as well.

Migs and I decided that we should just focus on things that would make us both productive.  I chose to quit my job and decided to become a Stay-at-home-wife. It was fun because I have all the time in the world to prepare my husband’s meals. We both tried ketogenic diet (we had cheat days too!)  and religiously go to the gym every 6:00 AM. This lasted for nearly 3 months.

Fast forward to October 2017, we opened a business and have been very busy that I forgot record my monthly period. I knew I had spotting but I thought it was just caused by stress. So, I never really recorded it. Plus, I have done so many pregnancy tests in the past that I no longer want to be disappointed. I was at the point where I couldn’t care less about fertility as long as I have my regular check-up with an OB and a pap smear, then I am good.

Everything was doing well until I was rushed to the hospital on the eve of our 5th wedding anniversary. I thought I was having another vertigo attack.  After an hour of waiting at the Emergency room, the Doctor came back congratulating us.

We visited my OB the day after and found out that I was already 7 weeks pregnant! It wasn’t really a happy story. My sense of smell was very sensitive.  Migs had to ditch all the onions and garlic at home. I was very picky when it comes to food that I lost 3kgs. But everything went back to normal when I reached my 4th month. Now that I am on my third trimester and have gained almost 8kgs, I started cutting rice from my diet again with hopes of having a normal delivery.

Five years of married life and here we are – busy preparing for our little one’s arrival. I am now 34 years old and I am still amazed with how amazing my pregnancy turned out.

If you want to know more about Ketogenic diet, I suggest that you visit your doctor first and join a community where you can get tips and exchange recipes too. You may want to check out this Facebook Community.

Here’s a photo of me taken last week.  We can’t wait to see our little one!
