Currently no helper at home. We are on our own. I thank God that I still have my mother-in-law who helps me with the household chores and in taking care of my two children. It was so hard to get a trusted housemaid and even before I became a mom I told myself that I will raise my children not depending on yaya. That is why I prefer to be a work-at-home mom. I am so grateful that my parents taught me how to be independent; trained me how to keep the house clean in simple steps and how to cook food.
I remember that before I entered into college, I was training as a service crew in Mc Donalds food chain then after three months I became the local store marketing as a working student. Those are the days. Anyway my post is about baby hammock in the Philippines and I believe that having this at home has a connection with a work-at-home mom like me. A baby hammock is a sling commonly used for babies for swinging, sleeping, or resting made of fabric, rope, or netting, suspended between two points. In the photo above the baby hammock has a woven network of twine or thin rope stretched with ropes between two firm anchor points. The vendor who sold it told me that it is made from Ilocos province which cost Php 450. I prefer this kind of baby hammock or duyan because it is comfortable and the air can pass through keeping the baby fresh while staying inside it.
While baby is sleeping in the baby hammock, I can do other things and can even work using my notebook computer. Although my baby has an enfant playpen where she could play and sleep, I have noticed that she sleeps better in a baby hammock during nap time because of the swing. Just make sure that if you are going to use this baby hammock do not leave your baby unattended. When the baby awakes, he/she may rise and climb that might bring the baby to fall.
