I’ve been a mom for almost 7 years and though this is a short period, it’s safe to say that I’ve learned a lot about myself and my capabilities as a child-rearer, partly because of the challenges I face daily. Every parent would say that being one isn’t a walk in the park yet it’s still rewarding.
In this day and age, we’re lucky that there are more and more products and services that make parenting more convenient and easier. I don’t know if I can manage being a momma back in the olden (olden talaga?! lakas maka-oldie heehee) days, like the time of our grandmother or great grandmother!
After having two kids, I can easily round up a handful of products that worked well for me and my children and Cycles & Cradle are two of the brands that I would recommend to expecting parents and newbie moms.
All moms don’t compromise. Di talaga pwede yun “pwede na”, all the more when kids our involved. Safety and care are usually our top concerns and this, Cycles and Cradle understand.
Cycles and Cradle celebrate their 10th year which proves that they’ve been providing mild, safe and sensible products for babies. After all, Eveolution, the company behind Cycles and Cradles is headed by Emily, who is a mom herself. If there are Cycles/Cradle products that my kids and I love using, it would be the Cycles Sensitive Baby Lotion, Cycles Sensitive Anti-Mosquito Citronella Patch and Cradle Toy & Surface Cleaner.
We use these three on a daily basis. Since my kids have very sensitive skin, they need to use mild and gentle products, especially lotion. And Cycles Sensitive Baby Lotion is one of the lotions they alternately use (for some reason, they need to change lotion from time to time to alleviate dry skin). Since Cycles Sensitive Baby Lotion comes in a pump bottle, it’s easy for my kids to apply it on themselves. Automatic na yan after I give them a bath, they’d ask for their lotion so they can lather up.
The Cycles Sensitive Anti-Mosquito Citronella Patch is also a must in our household. We make sure we never run out since my kids use it daily. There’s really no weather nor season for mosquitos kasi so just to be on the safe side, I put one patch on their clothing, particularly on the area where there’s more skin exposed. So if they’re wearing shorts, I put it there but if they’re wearing pants and short-sleeved shirt, I put it on the latter since their arms are more exposed. I never let my kids leave without a patch ‘coz I’m really scared of dengue!
Last but definitely not the least is Cradle Toy & Surface Cleaner. I’ve loved this even more after I gave birth to lil’ Mr. JG. Why? Because he’s the type who would put everything and anything in his mouth! So I make sure to spray and wipe everything in his path with this, so if he feels like touching and putting random things in his mouth, I know he’s somewhat protected. I believe this has saved me from a lot of trips to the ER caused by diarrhea.
Again, thank you so much Emily for giving birth to both Cycles Sensitive and Cradle Natural! Happy 10 years to your “babies”. Wishing more years for them!
Cycles Sensitive and Cradle Natural are available at leading department stores and supermarket chains nationwide.
