Mom’s Natural Buddy in Caring for Babies

Early in 2010 when I first learned about my pregnancy to our first baby, there’s one that made me feel so excited about — shopping! Being a working mom at that time, I made it a habit to always drop by the baby section of every department store within my work area to look for some of the best available baby products. As a pregnant career woman, there were also times that I felt so lazy to go out and I just resorted to online shopping. Even until now, I still love looking for some excellent items and products for our baby girl online.

“The most natural way to care for my family is to always be there for them and to give only the best and the most natural products.”

One Facebook day, I stumbled into this online fan page which says, “Organic Rice Powder” for kids — very interesting! I suddenly remembered my husband’s caution when buying baby powder for Noa.

“Mommy, remember what happened to me when I was a little boy. So be very careful when choosing a baby powder for Noa.”

My husband developed asthma when he was still a baby since his aunt accidentally poured a lot of baby powder over his chest. His asthma did not go away not until his high school days.

The American Academy of Pediatrics warns us parents of a harmful ingredient present in the common baby powder products in market called “Talcum.” It is said to be closely related to carcinogen asbestos which commonly develops in the ovaries and lungs. It could pose serious danger to a child once inhaled. (BabyCenter)

But with a hot and humid country like ours, let’s admit it, we couldn’t get away with using baby powders. But don’t we worry because there is a locally available organic baby powder that we can safely use to our kids—TINY BUDS!


I first bought Noa’s Tiny Buds baby powder in Rustan’s Gateway. Tiny Buds is made of 100% real Rice grains with mild fragrance. It controls Noa’s excessive sweating and the good news; it is 100% talc-free!

We have been using Tiny Buds baby powder together with its other product line like the Baby Bottle & Utensil Wash. We even use this effective yet safe wash to clean Noa’s fruits before giving it to her. It is very economical to use. 1 500ml pump-bottle of the Tiny Buds Baby Bottle Wash could last up to more than 1 month!


We also love the Tiny Buds Hand Sanitizer that is made from fruit extract! Its pear scent smells so good! 🙂

This is definitely a favorite! The Tiny Buds Hand Sanitizer!

Tiny Buds has been constantly growing its organic product line for us. Just recently they have launched the following members of their family:

  • Sticky Hand Wipes – organic baby wipes that is alcohol-free, gently formulated with chamomile and Vitamin E, and paraben-free

We use the Tiny Buds Stick Hand Wipes in cleaning Noa’s messy mouth after eating 🙂

  • Scratch Off – soothing gel to soothe skin discomfort, insect bites and other minor skin irritation, paraben-free
  • In A Rash? – soothing light cream that can be used after every diaper change, free also from paraben and petroleum. (I will place some photos of each product)

I want to safely and naturally care for my precious daughter Noa so I put my trust in Tiny Buds. Noa’s happy, too! 🙂

Tiny Buds is my natural buddy in caring for Noa.

My baby and I are also very honored to be chosen as one of the Tiny Buds ambassadors! This print ad was published in the April 2012 issue of the Smart Parenting Magazine!

  • Shangrila Mall

    “Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood – finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.” i love my baby so much..

That’s why just like other mommies, I always give my 100% love and care to my two beautiful angels and their father. I only want the best for them!

    How about a toy surface instant cleaner spray? I would love to see a new product like that from Tiny Buds.

    To my mama and papa, thank you for the love and support. Thank you for still accepting me eventhough I ran away so many times. I am so sorry for rebelling. Thank you for taking good care of my children by providing their needs. I will try to be a good daughter and a good mother in return. I am so lucky to have you both as my parents.

    To my two little angels,
    Thank you for being a great blessing to our family. I am so sorry for being a bad mama sometimes but I want you to know that I love you both so much. Sorry if me and ur papa had a bad and failed marriage. We will try to be good friends and be a good parents to you both. Eventhough we are incomplete. My family will never let you guys feel that we are incomplete. You will be showered with lots of love and care from all of us. Love you both. Hugs and Kisses 😀

I love you and I’ll take care of you both forever.

    For my kids: I’ll do the same what my parents did — to provide you unconditional love, understanding and lots of care. I know that natural/organic products (food & baby/kids care) will help prevent asthma attacks.

    Breastfeeding my son is the most “natural” way that I show my love for him. Also, as much as possible, with the products I use on him, I choose only those containing natural ingredients. It is scary to think that the chemicals in products we use in our households everyday may be harsh or harmful to our children, now and even later on in their lives. That’s why I make sure that the products I use on my baby contains only natural ingredients (like Tiny Buds Rice Baby Powder).

I have big dreams for my daughter, but I know that at the end of the day it’s still what she wants that will prevail. When that time comes, I’m just here to guide and support her.

    I think one way of showing love is to spend enough time together as time is the most precious and priceless thing that we possess. It’s hard to give pure love in other ways but I would say that it is also important to try not to be selfish when it comes to those that are important to us.

    The most natural way of taking care of my little girl is to always follow my heart. And of course, making her eat organic food. She eats sinigang na hipon, broccoli, sauteed sayote and her favorite is misua with patola. Sometimes, a little giving-in from the “old folks” can mean no harm. They were once mothers to little kids, too. So basically, they know better.:)
