What To Expect Book Review and Giveaway

A couple of months ago, i announced that i was invited to be one of the partner sites of  WhatToExpect.com, the online version of  What to Expect When You\’re Expecting book series. It is the best pregnancy and parenting resource site where you can actually share your own experiences and learn from others. You can gain information on what to expect during preconception, pregnancy, first year,  to toddler years plus tips and advice from experts or those who have gone through  the same situation. It is an online community for parents where we can  gather advice and useful information from the authors behind the best selling books, and a fun way to share experiences and photos of our little bundle of joy!
My baby years is all behind me, so when i received the free books from WhatToExpect, I grab and read first the What to Expect the Second Year series. It is the complete guide to toddler\’s wonder year and obviously, i can relate to this one! Understanding child\’s behavior is my primary concern, cited example is this:
\”Our toddler drags a grimy old blanket around with her. When she will give it up?\”
Sounds familiar? Security object, transitional object or comfort object. Many toddlers latch on one comfort habit or object and some latch on several. True enough, my now turned 4-year old child latch on his comfy (tattered and completely worn out!) blanket until now. I have learned to impose acceptable  limits on carrying his blanket, and allow him to latch on it until he is ready to give it up. The book provides steps and  guides in dealing with common problem encountered, at the same time gives answers to all your toddler questions.
Now, how about getting a chance to have the following books and take a full advantage of having an essential guide through those remarkable years of your life?
One lucky reader will get a chance to own a copy of the following books:

Algebra Problem Solver review

Who loves Algebra?! ME!!! cheerfully  raising hand.

and, that\’s me wishing. =)

Back in College, Calculus is the most popular and hated subject, those complex numbers doesn\’t gets its easy way on everybody\’s comprehension. Many repeatedly fails  the subject  causing a lot of money and stress. Not everyone learns to love Math; for me, its like a challenge that i had surpass and never wanted to be with the same struggle again. Trigonometry never fails to give me a hard time finding the angles\’ circular functions. Calculus symbolic expressions doesn\’t hit me with just one shot of trying to understand and unveil the logic. Algebraic expressions and its variables leaves me confused and  frustrated.
My thought of never coming back on solving Math problems is impossible. Sooner, there\’s someone who will ask for my help in getting his  homework done. I can visualize one on one tutorial sessions with my son and that means i have to possess  mathematical skills to successfully introduce a great working relationship with math.
Having the opportunity to receive and review this software means i won\’t be paying extra for a tutorial service and confidently face the challenge of answering complex math problems with this  algebra software  that will serve as my son\’s 24/7 personal math tutor. 
Algebrator lets students enter their own math problems and then solves them step by step while explaining all the steps. Everything from pre-algebra (simple arithmetics) to College Algebra (including matrices) is covered by the program. The program is easy to use, all you have to do is enter the problem and Algebrator does the rest!
But of course, to have an easy grasp on the subject you must pay very close attention to the detailed explanation or you can practice solving problems and use the \”Check your work\” tool to know your progress. 
Talking about one lovely math solution… that\’s another mommy problem solved!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

BabyBond Review and Giveaway

Breastfeeding provides many health benefits for both mother and baby, breastmilk provides all the complete nutrients improving baby\’s health condition and IQ. For mothers, it lowers the risks of cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis and cancer, can help to lose post pregnancy pounds faster, and can even provide psychological sense of confidence knowing you are providing complete nourishment for the baby.
I initiated breastfeeding right after delivery but sadly~  it wasn\’t successful, i have tried eating foods that can stimulates milk production but still  found  inadequate supply to meet my newborn\’s feed requirement. Three days of trying breastfeeding, then i decided to stop; thinking i am one of those women who have insufficient glandular tissue to provide enough supply to my ever loud crying, hungry little bundle.
I practically envy mothers who breastfed and enjoyed intimate connection while providing the best nourishment, i think on my next pregnancy, i will still give it another shot! =)
When i got the chance to review this nursing accessory cover, i ordered BabyBond  Flex style  in chocolate color, size 1. A choice of my  color preference and size assuming i can also make use of it for my next baby. I am not pregnant (yet!) so i offer it to a relative who gave birth just last month, to make full advantage of comfortably feeding her baby even in public.

Covers mom, not her baby! 
See the difference in nursing the baby uncovered…
