It was really a boobstacular event last Saturday! 500+ breastfeeding moms and dads together with their kids show off their most creative mom-dad-baby costumes at the BOOBSTACULAR Costume Party held at the PBA Cafe in MetrowalkOrtigas Pasig City last Saturday, October 28, 2017. During this event I was able to meet other fellow “mga kasuso” and enjoyed being surrounded by women of strength and confidence, knowing that all of us experienced both the hardships and benefits of breastfeeding.
Ms. Pamela Ann Jill Virtucio, Founder of Nursingmommiesph and the event’s main Organizer, aimed to give value and importance to all the breastfeeding mothers for them to enjoy their breastfeeding journey. Their main advocacy is to help provide proper information about breastfeeding and support newbie and mothers who have difficulties in breastfeeding and to boost their confidence to normalize breastfeeding in public and live their life with a sense of self-worth, respect and dignity.
It was very amusing to see the participants flaunt their unique and awesome costumes during the Mommy and Baby Fashion Show. And of course, the kids enjoyed the magic show, their Treat and Treats (no tricks, all treats!), Loot Bags, and raffle prizes. There were also a mom and baby fair that showcase mompreneurs’ products for children and mothers.
During the event, Oleia Topical oil, one of the major sponsors, gave away samples for moms and babies to experience the goodness of miracle oil. This 100% natural oil helps relieve ache and pain faster. The product can help moms (and even dads!) to stop everyday discomforts caused by headache, sinusitis, back pains, sprains, cramps and more. Oleia is also safe for babies to help soothe them from diaper rash, insect bites, bumps, or just use it to give them a soothing massage.
Being a breastfeeding mom, I also experienced the challenges of breastfeeding. It is not an easy path to take. There are tears and pains that go along with it. I had headache from sleepless nights and back/wrist pains. I am really thankful that I have Oleia with me during this journey. It made my breastfeeding adventure easier. My whole family also benefitted from this amazing product in a lot of ways and I can attest to that.( I can share it to you in my next blogs, watch out for it!)
This one of kind gathering of breastfeeding moms also featured natural parenting talks and and an inspirational talk from ARUGAAN chair Nanay Ines Fernandez. Truly, this event gave all the breastfeeding mothers a 100% satisfaction, enjoyable and lovable costume party for the whole family.
The event was made possible by Nursing Mommies Ph and co-presented by My Crib Ph.
