Baby Yoga For Your Baby's Developement

I first tried yoga, specifically Hatha Yoga, back in 2005 as a class in a local gym in Ortigas. I liked it and still do so from time to time.


During that time, I never imagined that yoga exercises can be applicable for kids too, much less for infants. :) And so I was initially surprised upon hearing about the Pampers Yoga Stretchycise developed by Pampers, Gymboree, and the Mother and Child Nurses Association of the Philippines (MCNAP).

Pampers Yoga Stretchycise is characterised by a routine similar to play that combines yoga moves with stretching which they say will help encourage the development of baby's mind and body. Sound like the same yoga I took. :)

Now seriously considering the thought, it is common sense that those stretching and guided movement would indeed help in the baby's muscle and motor movements. Mommies should of course do it with care and proper guidance as baby's bones are still delicate.

I also learned that it is in the first two years of a child where the brain grows fastest. Particularly before a child can speak, movement is the way for them to explore and learn about their surroundings. It is at this stage as well where they develop new skills.

MCNAP president Estelita Galutira herself said:
The Active Baby Stage is really a period for developmental achievement and intellectual growth. It’s a time of intense exploration of the environment as children attempt to find out how things work.”

Furthermore, the baby's neural development, digestion, and deep sleep could also be enhanced.


In conjunction with the said Pampers Yoga Stretchycise (baby yoga) activity, Pampers introduced their new product - Pampers Active Baby diaper which is said to help encourage the baby's free movement with its elastic sides (stretchy side tapes) that follows a baby’s body shape, allowing a more comfortable fit - moms, take heed! I have yet to see one beyond the attached image though :)

Forti-D: Your Daily Dose of Vitamin D

Are you Vitamin D deficient? Just few weeks ago, I attended an event that talks about Vitamin D deficiency, then I realized it's not something we usually monitor. We go to the clinic for the regular physical examination which includes CBC, Blood Chemistry, Cholesterol check up, X-ray but have you ever had a check-up of your Vitamin D level?


Silent epidemic spreads: 3 out of 5 Filipinos suffer from Vit-D deficiency. Are you one of them? An expert in the field of occupational medicine has revealed that an increasing number of office workers in Metro Manila are becoming vitamin D-deficient because of their lifestyle habits.


Cases of vitamin D deficiency in the country are increasing due to lifestyle that most of us have. Vitamin D is produced naturally through adequate sun exposure and given that most office workers are not exposed to as much sunlight as they need to be, they face a much pronounced risk of suffering from the condition. Because of extreme heat, we opted to stay indoors…
