Preparing for Baby Zed’s first solid food plus Baby Company Haul

Preparing for Baby Zed’s first solid food plus Baby Company Haul

Omni A. Larrosa – JULY 9, 2018
One of a parent’s most exciting moments is feeding solids to his baby for the first time. I can still remember how Zia reacted on her first taste of mashed papaya over 5 years ago, in the same way, I still can recall Zela giggling when she first tasted mashed potato 3 years ago. Thank God for technology that allowed me to record these moments on photo and video and some of these are even posted on my IG account : @omniamisolarrosa.
In a few days, our third child, Zed will be turning 6 months old and once again, Bryce and I are very, very, very excited to witness it and capture it on the vlog! Can’t wait to see and share our baby’s expression as he gets introduced to his first solid food.
So as we wait for this moment, we made a rundown of items that we believe are necessary in feeding solids to our baby. Some of the items that we have on our list are feeding bibs, drinking cup, baby’s plate and best of all, a high chair or chair booster.
We took note of the high chair this time because we noticed that Zia and Zela both have a habit of playing while eating and they keep on running around while eating. When we were trying to analyze why they have this behavior, we concluded that this could have been attributed to the absence of a high-chair or chair booster when they were learning to eat solids. We used to live in a very small studio-type condo before kaya their bedroom, playroom and eating areas are all in one place. They were not trained to stay on their chairs while eating, a habit we intend to correct now that we have Baby Zed.


We heard of the All Things Baby Sale at Baby Company so we hurriedly went to their Powerplant branch located at R3 Level, Powerplant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati to find great deals for our needs. We always have a great shopping experience at Baby Company. They have friendly staff and I get better deals because I am a Mom Card user. Here are the great finds we got:


1. MIGHTumbler. 

We saw that Mom Card users get this very special product at P299.75 each for a minimum single receipt worth P500. I got attracted to it’s cute and kid-friendly designs. We got two tumblers, one in Panda and another in Unicorn for Zia and Zela. It also helped me as a parent as it won’t easily tumble and in a way, babyproof.

2. Summer Infant Deluxe Comfort Folding Booster Seat.



We opted to go for a booster seat instead of a high-chair since we can easily bring it anywhere we go and it won’t occupy much space at home.








3. NOSH Baby Munchables.

Zia and Zela never tasted anything aside from all natural fruits and vegetables on their first 12 months. This is probably why they are not that hard to feed even to this day. However, we had challenges in bringing food for them during travel days.

I discovered this new all natural and organic NOSH Baby Munchables and I thought it would be good to have this as an alternative whenever we have a need for easy-to-prepare and serve food for our baby Zed.

4. Tommee Tippee Cool and Mash Weaning Bowl 



Of course, feeding will never be possible without a feeding plate or bowl. We love items with multiple functions and features so we chose this feeding bowl from Tommee Tippee. You can mash, cool and serve baby food in just one bowl.

We also found these deals interesting so you might wanna check this out :
1.    Strollers

Most stroller brands are on 10-30% off until end of the promo. We took special notice of this foldable one called Baby Zen Yoyo stroller. I love it’s lightness that we can easily travel with it. See that I can easily carry it on one shoulder as if it was just a bag. It is also the only stroller that can let moms sit on it especially when there is a need to stop and breastfeed.






2.    Carriers

This carrier from MAXI-COSI is light yet sturdy as it can hold a baby up to 12 months old. It’s also compact and perfect for cars no matter how big or small. We are considering this too because we are acquiring a car real soon.







There’s also Ergobaby madness going on! If you’ve been following our vlogs (Omni & Bryce) on Youtube, you know that we are proud users of Ergobaby carriers for 5 years now. This carrier is such a wise investment and you will be so blessed if you acquire it while it’s on sale as it doesn’t go on sale all the time and the discount is a whopping 10-30% off! Wanna know why we love this product? We actually have a review here.




The All Things Baby Sale continues until July 31, 2018. Whether you have immediate or future requirement for baby products, I believe it would be a great opportunity to check this out.
