It’s been almost 3 years I’m a mom and oh what a journey…
You don’t need to be like the mom next door or the mom you see walking with 5 inch heels in the mall but yourself. You’re a great mom, don’t ever doubt yourself.
I thought motherhood was going to be easy but once my daughter was born, I realised it was anything but…. I started calling myself a failure. Why wouldn’t my daughter sleep through the night? Why isn’t she eating well? Did I do something wrong during my pregnancy that she ended up with a milk allergy? My mind was filled with crazy thoughts and it led me to frustration and depression.
After 2 years of being a mom, it finally hit me. All my daughter wants is me. Why am I trying so hard to be this perfect mother? We sometimes forget that being a mom is enough for our kids and we just need to take each day as it comes. Motherhood isn’t glamorous but it is rewarding.
Being YOU is enough mom!
Being a mom is loving, fighting, praying, sacrificing, working and not giving up when you want to.
NIDO has been a household name for many years. It’s a brand that moms trust and recommend.
Did you know during the first 5 years of your child’s life, their brain is developing at an incredible speed?
In fact these first 5 years lay a foundation for their entire lives, and we play a huge part in shaping it. Scary isn’t it?
The essential vitamins and minerals really aid in the development of these young minds. Let us face it we live in an age of processed food and fast technology. WE need to harness the goodness of life, and I guess that is why I appreciate brands like NIDO that come to the party. Not only do they provide the vitamins and minerals that children need, but they invest in our children by developing them in every area.
The five crucial areas of a young child’s development is:
- Speech and Language
- Problem Solving
- Psychomotor Skills
Our kids amaze us, reaching new heights and doing the extraordinary. To help support their amazing growth and development, NIDO® is specially formulated with all the goodness of milk, vitamins and minerals. Nestlé NIDO 3+ is a growing-up milk (GUM) formulated to meet the specific nutritional needs of your pre-schooler, enhanced with branded active ingredients and enriched with vitamins and minerals.
Science proves that when it comes to the learning process, your love and stimulation can make all the difference.
That’s why Nestlé has developed the Nestlé NIDO 3+ StimuLearn kit; a unique set of digital learning Apps that have been designed by child development experts at the Nestlé Research Centre in Switzerland.
StimuLearn Programme consists of 6 integrated apps. 5 game apps based on the 5 cognitive pillars to support children’s learning and one Mother App to monitor the child’s progress. The apps are available for free for both iOS and Android. Unfortunately the apps are not available for download worldwide yet but I’m sure they will be soon. 😉

Allowing your child to play on the tablet once in a while isn’t a bad thing. There’s some awesome educational apps like StimuLearn that can give you 2 minutes to yourself while your child is actually busy learning something. Kitana loves playing games on the tablet, we spend about half an hour a day playing educational games. She’s learnt a lot from it and sometimes surprises me with the difficult learning games.
I love that NIDO included a storytelling app and the best part is I can record my voice to personalise the story.
She loves the variety of apps StimuLearn provides but her favourite is Mr. Skylab. This simple puzzle game strengthens your child’s sense of form and figures and problem-solving.
NIDO is not just a probiotic anymore, it’s a brand that is growing with every phase of motherhood.
