Today’s #throwbackthursday comes on the eve of baby girl’s half birthday. This one is from a couple of hours after she was born when it really hit home that she was finally here and all ours. Because she came early and so quickly we didn’t really have time to think so it took a while for the whole thing to sink in. We finally got to meet our rainbow baby and she was just perfect. Nothing will compare to this moment.
How is your little one sleeping? Disturbed or like a baby? (Pun intended...) 😴
If it's the former, which tends to be true most of the time, we have a few sleep survival tips from experienced mums in our Instagram community! Make sure you tag someone who would love a few pointers:
1) Delegate all you can to daddy! - Obula
2) Enlist help whenever you can to look after the baby while you lie down and close your eyes for 30 minutes. Those 30 minutes can equate to 3 hours of nighttime sleep. - Dheepthijana
3) Accept you are going to have interrupted sleep and take pleasure and enjoy the 3am feeding times as they really are precious moments. Plus coffee. - Katy
4) Get a babysitter. - Gina
5) The 'Baby Shusher' App. - Aindrea

Tiny human feet and toes are just 😍 But maybe not so much so when they get a little bigger... 😳 This Monday evening, we're wondering what your biggest challenges are with more than one child?
Doesn't matter the age difference, but what have been most difficult for you when it's come to being a parent to two or more children? Let us know in the comments 👇

“Check-Up, Check-Mate!” Naka-schedule kami kaninang 3pm para sa unang check-up ni Mori sa kaniyang Pedia ngayong taon. Nagkalagnat kasi siya nitong weekend lang at dumami ang insect bites niya sa katawan (pati na rin sa mga mata niya, may kagat). At para mas mapabilis ang paggaling niya, binilhan namin siya ng ice cream(minsan lang siya kumain niyan dahil matamis) at ang unang boardgame niya para mabawasan ang kaniyang anxiety at stress. Pagaling ka kaagad anak!

Can we go back to bed yet? 😴 The struggle of Monday is very real, so we thought we would share a quote that has given us all in the office a little inspiration to start the week: "If you were able to believe in Santa for about 8 years, you can believe in yourself for 5 minutes."
We will believe in ourselves for at least 5 minutes to try and power on through until the end of the day 💪 What quotes help you to get through Monday?

Did you know? Facts about baby's sleep 👇
1) Baby's sleep lightly during the first few months of their lives as they need to continuously wake for feeds.
2) Sleep significantly helps a baby to grow and develop, so it's important they get enough hours each 24 hours.
3) Night and day impacts how a baby sleeps. Little ones need to distinguish between day and night to establish healthy sleep routines.
Do you know any interesting facts about baby sleep?

Hindi ko alam kung magseselos ako or what. Kasi kapag gigising ka na ngayon sa umaga at may nararamdaman ka puro nalang "Dada" kapag wala siya grabe iyak mo. Kapag nanjan na ang hyper mo naman. 😒 Magpagaling na nga kayong dalawang pasaway. #MoriMoments
