Momtuition is your mom sixth sense, your gut feel. Gut is an appropriate word because you probably still feel that connection with your child, literally in your gut. (Sometimes I still have that ghost sensation of the baby kicking inside me – no it’s not gas :))
Momtuition is the theme of this year’s Expo Mom. The Mommy Mundo #SoMoms were interviewed on our take on what momtuition is and some of the #SoMoms will be on the panel on Saturday, April 6. Life Coach Pia Acevedo will also be there on the same day at 3PM to give her talk on trusting your momtuition. (I’m sorry I’m going to miss this! The family will be going to Cebu for the weekend.)
Momtuition is most recognized when your kids safety or health becomes an issue but I believe momtuition also applies to shopping. (haha)
There are certain things moms just know — like if our kids will fit the clothes or they won’t like walking in those shoes or they’ll probably just use that dress once but we’ll buy it anyway because it’s so cute (I’m sure most of you can relate). It also amazes my husband that I am able to navigate my way around a crowded bazaar and memorize the layout after just one round. (OK, maybe that one is just skill. It’s a fine line you know.)
So in line with my shopping momtuition, here are some great finds that I bought before with a mix of momtuition, practicality, and their being just basically cute and cool.
CLOCKWISE: SPINKIE PILLOW: perfect for car seats, strollers, sleeping and getting comfy anywhere. THE MOMMY HOOK (Nurture Nook booth): best for hanging all those shopping bags off your stroller handle. GREEN SPROUTLETS (Mothering Earthlings booth): Super soft organic tops, bottoms, bibs and blankets for babies and kids. VAPOR SOOVE (Nurture Nook booth): a staple in our medicine kit. NURSING MOM COVERS: Super nice, high quality fabrics and designs. TIP TAP SOFT SOLES (Mothering Earthlings booth): super soft but sturdy shoes for little ones – super cute!!
Then, there are those things that I haven’t bought yet but I will already reserve for this weekend.
TOP ROW: MODERN TWIST KIDZ BOXES from Quirks Marketing: Art placemats for your kids. MANILABABYSHOP WET BAGS: Super useful for soiled diapers or for going to the beach! SUPPORI SLINGS (MamaBabyLove/ Mamaway booth): Perfect for travel and the beach, these lightweight mesh slings are at 25% off!
MIDDLE ROW: PAPER CHIC STUDIO JARS: I love these! ’nuff said. ISABEL RAG DOLL (Mothering Earthlings booth). BABIATORS (Nurture Nook booth): UV-protective coolness for babies and kids.
LAST ROW: MAGA’S KITCHEN Gourmet Tuyo (SoMoms booth). PAPER CHIC WASHI TAPE: designed masking tape which you can just put anywhere and everywhere! LADY DOO (MamaBabyLove/ Mamaway booth): Cloth menstrual pads.
