5 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE CHOOSING YOUR BABY'S BODY CREAM

June 14, 2017
Hello beauties, so today i decided to write on my blog (drum rolls please) yea I have been concentrating on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL and i have done so many amazing videos and the response is unbelievable so my blogging has being on hold. So for those who missed me...i'm back..I'll be posting here too at least once a week. So I did a post on GO CHEAP WITH PEARS BABY LOTION and realized that I'm supposed to have done this first. Choosing your baby cream is very important as a new mom or just a mom in general. And I know how annoying it is to buy a cream and it doesn't perform or just wasn't right for your baby's skin. So here are some of the things, you should consider and I hope you find it very helpful

1

 Budget: This is the first thing you should consider before choosing  a baby cream. In this case follow follow isn't allowed because you don't want to be having high blood pressure whenever your baby's cream finishes. I see a lot of moms being worried because their baby's cream will finish soon. So you have to know your pocket and know what you can afford so that even in recession you will be able to close eye and buy it.

2

Survey: In as much as you want to watch your pocket, you also have to ask questions o. Its not just to buy  any thing you see, NOOOOOO and not just one or two people but as many moms as you can ask. This will help you to know the one that is good, bad and even affordable. Cause sometimes you go to the market and when they notice you are a newbie. They will try to increase the prices or when you hear price, your heart will just be doing you gbim gbim like me  and nothing is as painful as when you and some moms are discussing and you ask how much they bought a certain cream and they say 1500 naira meanwhile you bought yours 4500 naira.


3

Consider your Baby's skin. This one works when your lil one is already here. For my case Jina's skin was very sensitive so I had to later change her cream twice and finally opted for one which works perfectly.

4

Weather: This our weather is somehow now so we have to be careful in choosing our little one's cream...yes it's very important to consider weather. If it's hot, you choose something mild and not too sticky. You know sometimes baby go just dey cry cry and us mothers will be quick to say na so him dey do/cry meanwhile..it is what we applied on him that's making him/her to be uncomfortable and fussy
 ( NOT IN ALL CASES). So for dry weather, use something oily or you can mix the body lotion and an oil/butter like Shea 

5

Natural or .  .very important. So before you give birth, you have asked all  your questions and done your survey and checked your budget and so on and so forth. Now what do you want. Ask your self these questions.

Do you want to use things like Shea butter, coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil etc. ?

Have you seen anyone that has used it before and it  worked?

Do you like the smell. This is not a joke o cause some moms will use Shea butter and start complaining about the smell.

Will you be able to make it yourself or buy from retailers?

So you have to be sure if you want to go natural which is the best option cause at the long run your child skin will just be looking like soft bread or you want to go the other way.



Remember not to completely dry baby's skin before applying cream. just dab the towel on them and apply cream., The remaining water will help the cream penetrate into the skin.


So what do you use for your baby's skin?
What would you recommend?
What are the pros and cons?

4 SKIN CARE GUIDES FOR YOUR KIDS THIS HAMATTAN SEASON

November 17, 2016


Hello mamasitas. How y'all doing....sorry I have being MIA but Itw my business o. OMG it's like I should take a week off everything, husband,  kids,  business etc. I really need a trip. Ideas please.  Oh I didn't tell you but for those of you following me on facebook know that I now have a clothing business which is online and offline but mainly off line.  Yes I sell fairly used clothes or just call it OK.  and it's been seriously hectic.  Waking up taking care of everything and preparing to go to the shop isn't really a thing but I really appreciate God for bringing us this far.  So if you are interested please patronise your sister so the ministry can move.
I sell bras,  cotton nighties,  kiddies and baby shoes

So today's post is to guide you or give you some tips on how to care for your kids/toddlers/infants skin this hamattan period

1: Do not dry out the skin after bath.  Use a clean towel and pat dry and do not rub.  You don't want the skin to break out

2: Ditch the lotions and creams for now.  No don't throw then away just keep it aside for now and go back to your oila and petroleum jelly like Vaseline.  This will help keep the skin soft and nourish and also make the skin shine and since you are not drying out the skin in the first place, you do not need so much. This can also be applied on the lips to keep it soft too.


3: Wear them pop socks, leggings and long trousers especially for the older kids .  Depending on how old your child is you have to wear them things that will help retain moisture.  You know this period everywhere is annoyingly are dry and if you expose their skin,  it will definitely dry out. Another thing is for those of us that our kids are very active, it helps prevent wounds, scratches and injuries.

4: Wear them coveralls. This is very importance especially for toddlers infants and babies. This will also help retain moisture and prevent the skin for breaking.

What other tips do you have.  Please share with us in the comment section. I love you for reading and till my next post.  xoxo

HAVE I BECOME MY MOM

October 28, 2016



Hello daisies...Howdy, when you saw the post title i know the first thing that came to your mind is that it's bad but somehow it isn't. Can you remember back in the day when you just do one small thing at home or in school and your mom wants to gist  that mistakenly ask her, she will over exaggerate it. For instance you took 15th out of 76 students (see the gap o) and someone asks your mom what the problem is and she starts like this

adanna has killed me o, after, spending 20, 000 for school fees and all those other things that if she doesn't get she will die, she will never let us rest us rest o, everyday they said we should buy ruler, they said we should buy pencil. When her mates were reading she was buying pencil and ruler now see how she has wasted all our efforts and money. eh ya madam what did she do exactly, she took last in class o, when  her mates were taking first second and third she was there looking for 15th to carry and come and show us. Those people carrying 1st do they have...wait madam did she carry last or 15th...it's better he had carried last now so we will all rest. This girl blah blah blah
 OR IS IT WHEN As a boarding house student, you misplace your uniform  or day wear and after much lying, explaining, convincing and begging so they can sew a new one and your parents finally agree and your mom takes you to the market and the following conversation occurs....

madam how much that yellow check material, na 220 naira per yard...ah ah i buy am 150 nah...madam when be that..e don reach like 3 months wey we sell 15o we even sell 130 self but things don add money....Your mother turn to you and drags your ear, you see what you have cause...every term sew me uniform, you will be dashing people your uniform, father christmas, the small money i wan to add and buy provisions i will use it and be buying cloth for you...i will rmove this money from your pocket money. Then the seller replies, madam take am easy na small girl and your mom replies: why she no go be small girl when you wan sell market. Then you will now carry your over sabi mouth and add: Mummy take it easy please...common close your your dirty mouth before i shut it up for you, if i hear peem eh..i will flog you in this market..stupid girl...
 Oh my God i saw this kind s of things wella...yes i was that girl who always losses her uniform every term but as i got older things changed. Back to my post so Jina scribbled on her home work and i was upset when hubby came back, I started reporting her before i realized my self. I have added all the jara in this world to the story then i stopped and remembered my mom. So after all she's not wrong maybe that's what all moms have in common. Even up till now if my mom calls me once and you don't pick she will call my older ones and tell them she has been calling me since morning and I'm not picking. Now i can relate but then i used to be mad.

How did your mom report you to your dad or siblings?
Do you do same to your kids?
How would you say kids like me back then should be treated or corrected?

I love you for reading and till my next post...XOXO

AROUND HERE LATELY AND CHILDREN HARVEST

September 12, 2016

Hello beauties, how was your weekend. Mine was very cool. The way I prayed for this holidays just cause I didn't want to see jina cry again . So call me whatever but I missed her so much. The way she throws her tantrums, sings her operas (yes she sings opera at this age) maybe I will create a video for it. Yesterday was children harvest in my church and the mass was so long. Me I didn't stay o cause we had to sit outside on an I will soon break looking chair and the sun was not just smiling at us. See me seriously tanning o lol.


Plus I made my delicious akara, organised my plate turned makeup rack and visited my dead friend @ladyportia
So I just want to hail you guys and ask how was your weekend plus if you are catholic have your church done their children harvest.

P.S: Ife is already four months, has two teeth and am seriously thinking of stopping exclusive. What do you guys think.
Have a beautiful week ahead and till my next post.... xoxo

JINA'S IS IN PRE-NURSERY" HER FIRST DAY

September 07, 2016
One of my saddest moments are when my kids are doing things for the first time. like when Jina took her first immunization and they were going to give her injection see me crying like a baby or was it Ife's circumcision. you don't even want to know. I even wrote a post about it HERE .and also how to take care of it HERE If you are not following me INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK then you are seriously missing cause that's where everything happens.  So Jina started school on Monday, 5th and it was a  needed parting but hurtful cause i am so used to her staying with me but i know it's for the best. On the first day when i went to pick her after school, she was giving me serious attitude but i really understood and just kept talking to her and by the time we got home she has loosened up a bit
 The first report the teacher told me was that my daughter is very tough and doesn't allow anyone feed her. She is a very playful girl cause a teacher friend sent me a pic and now i know Jina will cope very well. Jina is so sharp for her age and the things she says even baffles her teachers but she's still very quick to say i want kiss or i want hug when she knows she has messed up and that I or her father is angry with her.  I know the Pics aren't clear but i trust you will bear with me until my ministry move and i can afford to make major changes.

How did you cope with leaving your kids in school for the first time?
How did he/she cope on her first day?
I love you for reading and till my next post...xoxo

CHECKLIST FOR GOOD SCHOOLS IN ABUJA

August 22, 2016
Hello cuties, howdy and i hope you are already having a great week. so today's post is kinda personal. So Jina is starting schoool cause she was two this AUGUST and she is very very smart this September by God's grace and i am so scared., anxious and nervous.  Am I the only one who is?. One because, i have never being away from jina asin i practically go out with her  to almost everywhere and my girl is too active for her age so i am always worried whenever i leave her with someone else except her father....after all na our pikin...only us can manage her. So during my search for schools for Jina i had a list of things i was looking for and i am so excited to share with you guys and you can add others if you remember in the comment section. Based on my family and friends experience and mine too unto aunty and unto say i schooled in naija I realized that many ABUJA schools show on the outside what they don't have on the inside and it is only after your child is enrolled that you start seeing things.
Are your kids starting school for the first time? 
What age is he/she starting? 

TIPS ON HOW TO CHOOSE A GREAT SCHOOL FOR STARTERS

1. Make sure you know some kids already going there like family friends, neighbours etc.

2. Ask their parents about the school and if you can ask the kids too

3. Go around the school, check out their classes, playground, music room, whatever they claim they have and if they are on holidays and have holiday lessons, check out the teachers. I went with my friend to a school if you see the Beatibg a teacher was giving to someone...We run

4. Ask every question you want to ask cause That's where your kid or kids are going to.

5. Let it be close to your house especially for starters like me so any peem you can fly to that place and carry your pikin.

Finally please don't start with a school bus especially for toddlers so they can be close to you and they won't feel it too much but if you must suit yourself. 
Hope this tips are very helpful any more tips please leave in the comment section or send me an email. Will reply ASAP
