Camille Prats Yambao Shares Tips on Choosing Baby & Toddler Car Seats

Parent's topmost concern will always be their children's safety and security. I admire how mom personally test products before they allow their kids to use it. Perhaps a good example of this is testing the warm bath with our elbows to make sure the water is not too hot for the baby. There are a lot of things parents prepare when they get pregnant up to the delivery of the baby - baby clothes, bathing essentials, crib, and even car seats.

Joie Baby & Toddle Car Seats

Camille Prats Yambao shares her journey as busy mom to Nala during the launch of Joie Car Seats. The busy young mom’s latest project helps to create awareness for the “Child Safety in Motor Vehicles Act of 2017,” approved by the House of Representatives last year, and is now for deliberation in the Senate. This comes at an important time, because in the Philippines alone, it is reported that an average of more than 600 children have died in road crashes from 2006 to 2014.

To help raise awareness for children’s safety when travelling, Philippine TV’s beloved princess, Camille Prats Yambao is partnering with a well-known global quality manufacturer of baby car seats, strollers, high chairs, and baby carriers.

"I believe that safety is important, especially when we're on the road with our children,” says Prats Yambao. “That's why I am so thankful that finally, we will soon be required to make sure our babies and children are protected while they are riding in vehicles. It's also great that Joie, one of the best brands trusted by parents around the world for this purpose, is also now available here in the Philippines.

Why car seats for babies and kids are important?

According to the World Health Organization, a good car safety system with rear-facing restraint can reduce the risk of injury for children aged 0-4 by 80 to 90%. Compared to having only a seat belt, where the risk of injury for children is reduced only by 32%. Here in the Philippines, a lot of parents are not used to putting their babies and toddlers in car seats.

Joie Baby & Toddle Car Seats

Since 2011, Joie has been making safety products for babies and toddlers worldwide. Popular in the UK, Europe and Middle East, the company’s high quality products are now available in the Philippines through their authorized distributor, Europlay Distributor Co. Inc.

Camille Prats Yambao recommends Joie's Every stage car seat, which received the  2017 Mother & Baby Gold Best Car Seat (Group 1+) and 2016 Best Baby and Toddler Gear Consumer Choice: Gold (Group 0-1-2-3 Car Seat). The Every Stage car seat is  the ultimate transporter that makes growing up easy from birth to twelve years.  Grows every which way for every which stage.  Beginning as a rearward facing seat from birth to 18kg and converting to a forward facing seat from 9-36kg.

Camille shows us how light the Joie stroller is.
Camille currently uses and loves her newest Pact Lite stroller.  An exclusive one-hand fast and flat fold stroller package.  One of the smallest when collapsed.  Comes with a custom carry bag and strap, ready to travel even on an airplane.

“I love to carry my baby, but let's face it – when you go to the mall and you have to walk very long distances, carrying 15 kilograms or more for even just a few minutes can put stress on my back, which can actually be prevented when we use the stroller, so I really love to use it. When we visit our friends or go to other people’s houses, the baby stays in the stroller, and has her own space instead of putting her on the sofa or wherever,” shares Prats Yambao.

For the young mother, the best part is that the products made by Joie are light enough to carry, quick to store into the car trunk or small spaces, and are built to last for a very long time. “Safety begins with Joie” is the company’s motto, and for Camille Prats Yambao, that promise convinced her to partner with them.

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.

Elica Cream For Treatment of Eczema

Earlier, I attended the launch of Elica Cream and Ointment (Mometasone Furoate). It's a new product from Bayer Philippines that will treat inflamed, itchy eczema.

Eczema is characterized by red, dry, itchy rashes on the skin. It is more common in children than in adults. It can also have a huge negative impact on a skid's life, like sleep deprivation.
