    3. Hi,maybe you called the office line after close of work,sorry about that..

      However we are always available on WhatsApp 24/7 nevertheless..

      For Powerbank,go for Belkin,Amazon,Romoss amongst Others,they are all foreign brands with 100% quality..

      For Laptop,you look at the Ram,storage,Generation and processor..

      4/8gb ram,core i3 or i5(if you are into heavy graphics etc) is okay..

      Your budget plays a huge role;it’s priority as it determines what you can get in the general market..

      Someone that bought a laptop of 130k can’t get same generation or specs as someone with 180k or 200k..


      You can contact us for more info if need be..thanks

    4. Please guys, what can I introduce to my 4 months plus baby? He has been strictly on formula (Aptamil) because I didn't lactate after I gave birth. To be honest, the formula is good for him because he looks very chubby and healthy but the cost is killing me. The boy finishes a container of Aptamil in less than 1 week. Sometimes 5-6 days because he has a great appetite. I want to change to something less expensive but that will still be good for him. Can I also start introducing him to something other than formula now?

      Delete
    5. Martins which of the 2 numbers is your WhatsApp line?

      Delete
    6. Anon if your baby is not breastfeeding, that's the normal time for him to finish aptamil na. Abi is it not that big aptamil of about 10k? Any other cheaper formula you are going to get will be almost the same price range. Say for instance Nan is 3700, he'll finish 1 in about 3, 4 days. You'll get another one. It's almost same spending with the Aptamil.
      For me, I started giving my son fruit purees and pap from 4mths o. But you will still add the formula. So everything is still money.
      And I don't like changing formula because of constipation or diarrhea. You can try Nan sha. It's a nice formula.

      Delete
    7. @ Fidel, it is the one but it costs 15,500 now. I don't mind introducing him to the Pap and puree now but the pap recipe and procedure that someone gave me is just something I don't think I can do. Please if you have a simpler procedure for Pap please let me know.

      Delete
    8. Hei God!!! πŸ™†‍♀️ How will someone see road to answer my question when you have derailed with breast milk and baby food?🀦‍♀️ Martins, I'm referring to the power bank I asked up there.☝️ What is the best capacity to request for?

      Delete
    9. Lmao there's no simpler procedure oπŸ˜‚
      My sister in-law makes my pap cos you can't be buying pap for a baby like that. Plus it's even cheaper when you prepare it yourself. Idk, maybe you can get someone that you trust to make for you, add some extra cash. Make pap with yellow corn, depending on how well he takes it, the next one you can now mix with guinea corn. It's not very easy, just try hear?
      If you can, don't stop the Aptamil. It's a very nice formula like you said. From 6mths you can now add soya bean flour to the pap and maybe reduce the qty of aptamil you're adding to your pap. You will be giving your baby other finger foods. The Aptamil will be lasting longer. Economy just hard jor.

    1. Eat Otagiri (It is a bitter vegetable) Ask any Igbo woman selling vegetables. Just chew and eat it helps a lot. Oats both for swallow and normal pudding, it helps

      Delete
    2. 1. Exercise-especially walking, 2 - regular deep breath, 3. Bitter leaf water, squeeze the leaves, boil and drink like half cup, morning and evening, twice a week, 4. Reduce salt intake, I mean it, reduce it, manage the way your food taste without it. 5. Avoid carbonated drinks and alcohol completely, fall in love with drinking water but not cold water, 6 check your BP regularly and know when to act or see the doctor, 6 fasting, 7 Herbal teas - Chamomile at night- for good sleep, peppermint, moringa tea, moringa seeds - chew like two every three days, Turmeric - teas, just buy dry blended one and add half teaspoon to boil water allow to cool and drink it, after meal, you can get from mallams that sells or supermarket . 8. Google for more but learn to drink plenty warn water daily

      Delete
    3. Eat 3cloves of garlic on empty stomach first thing in the morning. You can boil it or swallow it like medicine

    4. God bless you Phoenix, anon 14:27 and anon 14:29.

    5. Boil guava and soursop leaves. Drink half cup in the morning and at night

    6. Buy chia seeds

      Take quarter teaspoon , soak it inside water for 20 minutes to overnight. Then add to your yoghurt, oat or cereal or take it like that. Chia seed expand so you don't need a lot.

      Please seek doctors counsel before you take it especially if you are taking blood pressure medicine or any other medication.

    2. Use pumice a.k.a stone (get from Mamas that sell sponge, safety pins e.t.c), add coconut oil to soften your feet in the water and then use foot file.

      Once you are done scrubbing, finish off with shea butter or coconut oil. Purchase a full manicure and pedicure set.

I know of family rice which is so sweet but when I bought the measured rice from that sack, I realized it was another specie of rice.

      Get at the virus cleaning apps you can get on your playstore

      Delete
    2. You downloaded a virus from a compromised site.
      You should also be concerned about the security of the data on your phone.
      This is why I refuse to download from all those net this and that.
      And I never click on links, except its within an already established conversation.
      Reset your phone.

      Delete
    3. Anti-virus are more effective before the virus attacks your firmware,not after it has attacked..

      So in your situation,the spyware has attacked your device so your best option is to soft reset or flash(reinstalling a newer firmware)

      Be careful with links;you can also download apps like Audiomack in your phone,then use the app to get various musics which makes your device safe from virus attacks..

      Hope this helps..

  36. Hi Blog Fam,
    My 10 year old currently has the height of a 7-8 year old. I feed him well, I am very worried as his friends are beginning to talk about his height.
    Any one has any ideas how to help him.
    Thanks in advance

    1. How tall is your husband family members and also your family?
      If he inherited shortness from his gene, you can't stretch him with food. Besides, he will grow with time. Don't talk about his heigh to avoid making him have inferiority complex...

    2. There is nothing to 'do' madam.

      He is simply responding to the genes you gave him.

      Dont go and suffer this boy for what he has no hand in.
      The most important thing to concern your self is if he is HEALTHY not what his '10 year old friends are saying'. Abi is he using height to do anything in particular at this age?
      And you can only determine that by taking him to the hospital not by the number of plates you give him.
      Have you taken him to the hospital???

    3. Forget his friends
      Build his self esteem by telling him that good people come in different shapes and sizes
      Emphasize it always,make him secure in himself regardless of height
