The urban life can be tricky to traverse at times. The crowd, pollution, traffic and everyday hustle in general can get too much for someone especially for mothers with young children, more so those without house helpers or nannies. They cannot leave the kids in the house just like that and when they really need to go for something important, they've got no choice but to take their offspring with them.

If you are a parent, you know someone who is a parent or if you came across a parent out and about with her kid, you might have witnessed how inconvenient it can get especially when commuting and with all the stuff that needs to be brought - feeding bottles, milk dispenser, extra diapers and clothes, baby wipes and even toys to keep them entertained.

Fortunately, there are some ways to at least lighten a mother's "heavy load". UrbanizePh carries various stuff that are beneficial to mothers like me though these products are usually marketed for career women, business women or those who are into sports and adventures. Here are my five picks which I think can help me with my motherhood journey:

1. Elecom BM-BPO3 Series

 
This bag is described as a high performance business backpack and since motherhood is a serious business, this bag is also suitable for on-the-go mamas. Well, at least for me! The side opening is for feeding bottles, the rear compartment is for diapers, wipes and clothes and the flip-top compartment is for mama's valuable items such as mobile phones and wallet. With this bag, I never need to pile everything into one big pocket and dig for the items later when I need it since everything is neatly packed and segregated. I can easily reach out for my son's bottles or baby wipes when "nature calls" and the situation is "dire".

Shopee-ing Using a Mobile Phone

A few days ago, I blogged about how to create an account with Shopee.ph using a mobile phone. This time, I will be sharing about my shopping experience using the same device.

Shopee-ing using a mobile device may look like a long process for a first time shopper but it's actually easy when you get the hang of it.

Here's my somehow detailed instruction to help you enjoy a hassle-free shopee-ing experience.

 
Once you have decided what item to purchase, simply click the "Add to Cart" button at the bottom of the page. If the item comes in variations, the window containing the options will be displayed. Click the variation preferred then specify the quantity you want. Click the "Add to Cart" button at the bottom of the page. When you are done shopping and ready to check out, simply click the shopping cart icon at the upper right corner of the page. Doing so will take you to the page like the below image.


 
These two images show the screenshot of the summary of your order. If you have a promo code, type it in the appropriate box. For this order, I used the promo code "WELCOMESHOPEE". The said code is valid for new members only and will expire one week after registration. Click the "Check out" button at the bottom of the page.


How to Create an Account with Shopee Using a Mobile Phone

What's a "helperless" mama got to do without online shopping and online banking? Eversince I became a mom, I've been relying on online shopping for my apparel and some baby stuff because I just find it difficult to go around malls and shop (especially clothes and shoes) with a baby in tow. I usually buy from Facebook sellers and I learned about Shopee.ph through them. I recently gave it a try and so far I have nothing against this social marketplace. Actually, I have five reasons why I think Shopee is a great shopping site.

  • Your money is guaranteed safe since you will be paying through Shopee, not directly to the seller. Shopee will only release the payment to the seller when you mark your order received once you receive it.
  • Many sellers offer free shipping for orders Php 500 and above and 50% off shipping cost for orders Php 250 above.
  • There are various modes of payment available - cash on delivery (COD), remittance/payment centers (Palawan Pawnshop, etc), over-the-counter on Shopee supported banks and online transfer.
  • The seller/shop is rated/reviewed by the buyers thus giving you an idea what kind of seller you will be dealing with.
  • So many items to choose from. Creating an account with Shopee was easy but choosing which items to buy can be challenging because I want to buy a lot of stuff (though I don't think I need them). 😃

While I love Shopee, there are a couple of things that I think may deter other buyers from using the marketplace.

Review: Dermablend Zinc Oxide 10% Cream with Aloe

For every mother with a child who uses diapers on a daily basis, a diaper rash cream is very important. In our case, I've been applying it to my son's bum and thighs before putting on his diaper, particularly the disposable one. That's what the pediatrician ordered before discharging us when I gave birth to him.

One of the products she recommended is zinc oxide. There are various brands of zinc oxide in the market but I got this Dermablend Zinc Oxide 10% Cream with Aloe since It is also the same product my nephew (a year older than my son) uses and they've nothing but good words for it.

Product Description

Dermablend Zinc Oxide 10% Cream with aloe helps prevent diaper rash. Protects chafed skin due to diaper rash and helps seal out wetness.

Review

Packaging and Appeal. The product comes in a white plastic tube with screw cap. The cream itself is white with just the right consistency. It is a bit thicker than the Nivea Body Lotion thus easy to apply. It doesn't leave an oily feeling either.
