PRODUCT REVIEW: Charlie Banana 2-in-1 Diapering System


Charlie Banana 2-in-1 Diapering System


Charlie Banana® diapers are a 2-in-1 reusable diaper system. Its a cloth diaper but with a smart front panel that gives you the option of tucking in a disposable pad for those special occasions.

When we attended the Meet and Greet Dora a few months back in SM Southmall, we learned too late that we need to present a single receipt purchase of 1000 PHP from SM Southmall Stores to avail an entrance ticket for 1 child and I adult.

We only had less than 1 hour to buy something and I decided to get a reusable diaper set for McKenzie. I chose Charlie Banana®. The pack came with 1 Charlie Banana® diaper and 2 reusable inserts.

Art, Music or Dance School Search for McKenzie: Lea De Castro Music Studio & Artist Center

McKenzie turned 2 last Monday, August 20, 2012.

She is displaying extreme interest to singing, dancing and art (color-ing! she would always say). This made us decide to check out the available music, art or dance schools in our area.

Last Sunday, we dropped by Lea De Castro Music Studio and Artist Center Inc in Binakayan, Kawit, Cavite. It is approximately 15 minutes away from our place.

Unfortunately, music lessons are offered only to kids 6yo and older.

They offer Baby Ballet for 3-5 year old kids. The person at the front desk told me they could accept kids younger than 3yo provided she is ready to be left alone in the studio with the dance teacher and the other kids.The Dance Studio is at the 2nd floor and parents can only wait outside.
