Last week, The Nest Attachment Parenting Hub San Juan was transformed into lush tropical paradise of pastels and pinks as we celebrated with soon to-be parents Paolo Contis and LJ Reyes to welcome their baby girl, Summer Ayanna Contis.
It was an intimate gathering amongst close friends and a crash course on baby care 101 thanks to generous industry partners who made sure all the bases of parenting essentials were covered.

New parents are often so excited to invest on the new baby, that they forget to prepare for what comes after birth. Luckily, our friends from Medela, Vpharma, Pack It and Mommy Treats gave some pointers on what to expect post partum especially in terms of breastfeeding.

The Nest Attachment Parenting Hub recommends investing in products that not only caters to the needs of their newborn but one that can also adjust to the growing needs the entire family. For mobile parents like Paolo and LJ, multi-functional brands like Oribel, I-Angel, Mamas and Papas, EcoMom and BabyZen Yoyo+ are always a good choice.
