PARA sa anak na si Nate, gagawin ni Regine Velasquez ang lahat, maipagtanggol lang niya ang bata.

May mga kumukuwestiyon nga kasi kay Regine sa klase ng pagpapalaki niya kay Nate.

Sinermunan talaga ni Regine ang mga kumukuwestiyon sa pagdede ni Nate sa bote, matapos niyang i-post sa IG wall niya ang anak na may subong milk feeding bottle.

Isang nobela sa haba ang mensahe ni Regine upang ipagtanggol at purihin ang anak, kasabay ng pangaral niya sa mga parents sa paraan ng pag-aalaga ng mga ito sa kanilang mga anak.

“Ok, I posted this pic of Nate making dede, I think he was only 17 months old here. Siyempre, dami nag-react bakit daw nagdede pa siya.

“I remember even when he was just a toddler people would always react why he’s still using his bottle.

My question is why are we putting too much pressure on them to stop? Coz of their teeth? Their baby tooth? Kahit anong gawin natin matatanggal ‘yun.

“Health wise he’s drinking milk and that’s good for his bones and teeth. The truth is, he only stop making dede this year. Magdede sya pag matutulog sya it’s like a security blanket for him.

“But every now and then I would remind him that he’s a big boy na. One day he just decided to stop and told his Nana that he’s not going to dede anymore because he’s a big boy na (but he’s still drinking milk from a glass na).

“I didn’t pressure him, hindi ko tinakot, hindi ko pinagalitan, AT HINDI KO NILAGYAN NG SILI YUNG DEDE NYA!!!

“My reason for not stopping him is because he needed milk and he associates drinking milk with making dede. And I know that if I pressure him he will just stop drinking it altogether.

“But with all the pep talks and where plenty believe me I think we were able to convince him to stop.

Nakakatuwa na sa kanya nanggaling ang paghintong magdede, he stop because he was ready to give it up.

“And as a mommas naging proud ako sa kanya. Forcing him to stop will just put pressure on him he will not understand why he needed to stop worked for us.

“I know it’s a lot of work but that’s what being a parent is….aaaaaaa looooot ooooooofff work. Sometimes we forget that they can actually understand us.

“So to all the moms and dad out there give yourselves and your babies a break do what works for you.

Dahil ang totoo iba-iba tayo what works for me, may not works for you. Ang importante ay mapalaki natin sila na may takot at paniniwala sa ating Pangi­noong Jesus. And of course praying and ho­ping for a good life f­or them.”

Nagiging emosyonal si Regine ngayon dahil malapit na ang birthday ni Nate. Sunud-sunod ang throwback videos at photos ng anak nung maliit pa ito dahil mami-miss ng singer-host ang mga baby moments nito.
