Giga Insect Repellant
DEET-free. DEET is a chemical found in most insect repellant. Overdose of DEET can cause serious damage to the brain. Our pedia said it is only a cause of worry if used excessively. Well, as a mommy, I’d like to shield my baby from all possible harm no matter how unlikely the damage could be. What I also like about Giga Baby is its lemongrass scent. I sooooo hate anything that smells like citronella which unfortunately is the active ingridient of most natural insect repellants. I also like that the Giga insect repellant is in the form of a liquid spray and not a lotion. For some reason, my kid’s a lint magnet. Putting a lotion on him will just make him attract more lint to his skin. Although sometimes we spray Giga directly on Aki’s skin, most of the time, we just spray his clothes to shoo away those pesky mosquitos. And I know Giga works because I tried spraying it to a mosquito. In no time, the mosquito was flying in small circles until it fell to the floor. Bwahahaha! Buti nga sayo!
Indigo Manila’s Jar of Hope
If there is a baby product that I love the most, this is it. For bites, scratches, bumps and any red marks, JOH is our best bet. there is a long list of its uses and benefits so just check IndigoManila’s website for yourself. We apply a dab of the product on Aki’s insect bites and red singit. JOH is all natural and so safe that it can even be used as a teehing gel. It smells like tea as it is made of blue chamomile. The only problem I have with this product is that it smells so good that my baby keeps trying to dunk his hand on our JOH tub. And if I may just add, my hubby who normally leaves the baby shopping to me, believes in this product so much that he insists that we hoard. Our hero daddy surprised us last week when he came home with a bag full of Indigo products that he bought from a mommy and baby fair near his office in Buendia. He said accdg to the saleslady, he was the only dude who bought items from the Indigo booth. That’s our daddy!
Kids Nature Baby Wash
I haven’t actually tried this but I’m really excited too. We got this as a free gift from Pinoy Baby. Ever since Aki had baby pimples sometime on his 4th week, we’ve been using Dove White ( should made in the US. the Dove whites made in Thailand and in middle east are not as mild accdg to my auntie whose 2 apo’s have atopic dermatitis). Since my husband is a believer of hoarding, we have quite a stash. As soon as we’ve used up our last dove white bar, we will shift to Kids heart baby wash.
