shopping for wheels
today, we went out to buy baby furniture - a play pen and a stroller for ximo. i was so excited because we're finally shopping for baby gear! i've been doing my homework researching on what to look for in a good stroller. i also read on baby essentials - like what to buy and not to buy.
of course we wanted value for our money so we went to 3 stores before choosing.
shopwise sucat was the first to visit. but their strollers were unappealing. di maganda! and expensive to boot.
then we went to uniwide, also in sucat. but the store didn't sell strollers. so we decided to go to sm hypermart. that's where we spent for baby furniture.
first stroller we liked was an irdy. but i got feedbacks from an officemate that irdy wasn't a good investment. we settled for apruva. it was a couple of hundred more expensive than irdy but with the same features that we liked. it's a 3-way stroller with compartments at the bottom and safety lock features.
initially i thought of buying a playpen with a bassinet. but at the rate ximo is growing, he would outgrow the bassinet in a couple of weeks. really, weeks, not months! right now, he's only a month old but he looks like he's already 3 months. he grows so fast. he's going to be a tall person.
so, anyway, i decided to buy a playpen. the brand is cozi at only P2100. timing was right because of the sale on baby items.
with the playpen comes a free baby pillow. and then we had to buy beddings for ximo. we bought a set of 1 comforter, fitted sheet, a baby pillow and 2 baby bolster pillows.
while there, we were urged to enter ximo in the sm star baby contest. we had to purchase P5ooo worth of baby stuff, plus the requirements such as birth certificate, picture. prizes would be a P10K gift check and a modelling contract for baby company.
one essential item we forgot to buy was a nursing pillow. this would be a godsend while nursing.
i often look at celeb moms to check out their baby gear and i realized i want a baby sling! i still have to see one here in manila.
but i'm still thinking of buying a baby carrier instead of a sling. kasi it looks constricting and uncomfy for ximo. we'll probably buy one when he's a lil bigger.
and that could be just a couple of weeks from now. hehe.
