Affordable Vaccines: Jacob’s Ladder Immunization Center


Hello there mommies and daddies!

I know one of the most expensive part of having a baby is the “Vaccine Time”

I am thankful for a mommy friend who told me about this establishment named “Jacob’s Ladder Immunization Center”

Their rates are much affordable compared to other providers.

As a practical mom, I’ve availed free vaccines from health center because our health center in Las Pinas City is clean and near our house in Las Pinas, but since some of the vaccines are no longer available, its time for us to check out Jacob’s Ladder
(but we’re still availing other vaccines to Zee’s pediatrician)

The place is accessible (Located along the road)


They are open Mondays to Saturdays



Friendly clinic assistant and Doctor – the pediatrician even did “Baby well check-up”
which is a surprise because we just went there for vaccination. I even asked him about Zee’s allergies and he patiently answered my queries.

The vaccine rates are 200 and up cheaper from other providers
(Big savings for mommies like us)



TIP: Better Call or Text them in advance before visiting their clinic to be sure that your desired vaccine is available on stock :)

Top 10 Reasons of Choosing to Breastfeed


There are many people who kept on asking me, why I choose to breastfeed?
I am mompreneur and I have a busy schedule… how come I still choose to breastfeed?

Sharing with you my top reasons why I choose to breastfeed:
(And surely you’ll love it too)

“I choose to breastfeed because….”

1) I believe BREAST MILK is a gift from God, its a free gift and precious, I value every gift from above.

2) It makes me feel a Super Mom. (in today’s modern life, some people think breastfeeding is old-fashioned, but I believe modern and young moms can breastfeed too.)

3) Breast milk is made of antibodies, an immune system booster that can protect our babies from viruses and sickness. (it is proven that breastfed babies have stronger immune system)

4) The future effect on babies. Breastfed babies often are more intelligent, and less prone to obesity and more..

5) Helps mommy lose weight fast – I am still a chubby mommy, but breastfeeding as per studies can burn 500 calories per day ( I wonder how big I am now if I didn’t breastfeed? Haha)

6) Breast milk is organic and 100% natural. (I am pro-organic and natural products)

7) Breastfeeding can save money (no expenses for formula milk and mineral water)

8) Breastfeeding fits an on-the-go mom like me.

9) Breastfeeding help mommies be cancer free! (studies shows that nursing moms are less likely to have cancer – the more years the mommy breastfeeds, the longer she is less at risk of having cancer)

10) Breastfeeding is love… It has that special bonding magic between mommy and her baby..
