“Our vision was to come up with a fun and meaningful event where families can bond and learn together. With our tagline –Welcoming Life, Love and Care, we want to give a message that having a new baby in the family is not just the mom’s responsibility but the entire family’s – no one is left out. Together with our partners and sponsors we want to nurture family development and raise the awareness on responsible child care." said David Abrenilla, MediaCom Solutions, Inc. president and Baby & Family Expo Philippines 2013 organizer.
Nina Ricci Alagao-Flores added, “This is a one of a kind baby and family expo and we should be there to learn the latest trends on parenthood and family life.”
“I speak in behalf of the entire Medela Moms team when I say that we’re absolutely amazed at the growing interest in breastfeeding, homeschooling, parenting and healthy eating.” says Medela Moms co-founder, Maricel Cua
Edric Mendoza, who is set to have a talk about Homeschooling emphasized the importance of the family as the fundamental unit of society. “If we are to see the world change, it has to start in the house, and I believe that homeschooling helps allow that to become a reality.”
