While Pancho is my superhero (watch his Origin Story here!) and his twin Luna is my angel, Vito is my champion! I was told by my friend that after losing a baby, the succeeding one is usually called a Rainbow Baby or a Champion Baby. I assume a Rainbow Baby is called such because sabi nga ng Southborder, “there’s a rainbow always after the rain” hehe. My friend explained that they are called Champion Babies because they’re usually just so… so… so strong and more advanced than other babies.
She told me that before I gave birth to Vito. I thought it was a cute sentiment but I didn’t really think much of it. Now that Vito is 15 months old and I’ve seen him do things way before the baby books tell me to expect it, I guess I get it now!
Here’s a video I got of him at 1 week old seemingly attempting to crawl!! Hahaha
And at just 2 weeks old he was holding his head up for several seconds!
Needless to say, he started actually crawling, walking and running earlier than expected. It’s true when they say it’s really different for all babies but milestones are there as a guide for parents to help with their children’s development.
Here’s a quick reference guide for power parents to check on their children’s progress!
Let’s not forget that a big part of a child’s development is their confidence and comfort in their body and their environment. This is why I make sure my boys use Pampers Baby Dry from birth. I’ve never had the need to try a different brand because it’s what the hospital used from the very start and both my boys have been leak-free and rash-free ever since!
Of course since they are boys, both Jim and I have experienced being peed on exactly as we opened their diapers to change lalo na nung newborn sila haha :))
When they reached a certain age, I switched them from Pampers Baby Dry Newborn to Pampers Baby Dry Pants. The Newborn variant is perfect for a new baby’s very sensitive skin because of it’s triple pwet-tection (hehe I love that tagline) – that means it saves baby’s skin from the 3 common causes of rashes! When they became more active, it only made sense to switch to Pampers Baby Dry Pants because it won’t sag thanks to the snug waist band and it has extra protection against babad! That means less diaper changes and more time to move around, explore, and learn! Yay!
Did you know that Pampers Baby Dry Pants is recommended by the Skin Health Alliance? I just recently found out about it too and it gives me even more confidence in my choice 🙂
