A few weeks back, Kelly, Nicole and I were invited to Amanda Griffin-Jacob’s intimate baby shower hosted by HALO SleepSack Philippines at Stacy’s BGC. I’m sure you’re already fans of the Jacob boys, Kieran and Kalon—well, get ready to swoon over baby#3! Amanda is having a baby GIRL this time! Can you imagine how beautiful this baby girl will be?!?! Ayayayayayay. She’ll break hearts for sure, just like her mama!
It was a fun afternoon of baby gifts (I was already taking down notes for future reference, wink wink!), games, and lots of surprises too! But best of all, it was really a way for all of us to celebrate AMANDA and her personal advocacies. I’ve always admired how outspoken she has always been about issues regarding motherhood and raising children 🙂 She’s definitely someone I really look up to!
“Amanda has always been very supportive of Halo and our advocacy to educate parents about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. This is our way of returning the love,” shares Ives Lim-Esteban of Halo Philippines. Halo Philippines distributes the Halo SleepSack, the #1 brand of wearable blanket that replaces loose blankets which can cover a baby’s face and interfere with breathing. And fittingly enough, Amanda’s first baby shower gift was a set of Halo SleepSack Swaddles to help make swaddling her newborn safer and easier. The Halo SleepSack Swaddle is the only commercial swaddle approved as hip-healthy by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, and used by over 1,250 hospitals in North America.
Aside from the award-winning Halo SleepSacks, Ives lovingly hand-picked other gifts for Amanda, which included products from @PigeonbabyPH, @Safety1stPH, @oopsPH, @mothercareph, @hatchandlatch, @i_angel_ph, lassigphils, @modernmamaph, @mamasandpapasph, @mybabydragon, and @babyleafdiapers. Everyone went home a winner because each was showered with gifts of her own from @pgdesignph, @certified_calm, @juicejab, @AvanillaStory, @cudsly, @seventhgenerationphils, @inglotph, @tasteryph and @mommytreats. Thanks again AMANDA and HALO! We had a ton of fun! Here are some photos from my camera 🙂 🙂
