“You love my job,” this is how first-time father Drew Arellano often teases the viewers of his popular travel show. And who wouldn’t love his job, right? He goes all over the Philippines, and sometimes even abroad, to see the natural wonders, experience the culture, taste the food and of course try out the new adrenaline-pumping adventures the place offers.
But, however awesome all of those sound, there’s one job that he’d love to do more – and that’s being the best dad to baby Primo. Just like other working parents, Drew shared that he struggles to find more time for his family.
Most first-time parents want to be with their children all the time, to witness all the milestones and to enjoy every moment with their firstborn. But in reality, not everyone has the luxury to do so. Most parents just make do with the time they have with their children and make it worthwhile.
Taking care of a newborn is definitely exhausting, all the crying, having no sleep and a sudden change in lifestyle may take a toll on first-time moms and dads, especially if they have to juggle all of that with their demanding work. But little victories like seeing your baby smile, and feeling that they recognize you may take all those stress away.
“Just making him smile, his milestones which we caught on cam, his front teeth, and all of his other firsts, [we consider] those achievements,” shared Drew. He also shared that at first, it seemed like Primo didn’t know him. But as time went by, Primo began to recognize him and respond to his quips.
“In the morning, a slap on the face is ‘I love you, Papa’, for me,” shared Drew.
He also bonds with Primo in every way he can. He makes routine activities like eating, playing and taking a bath fun for the baby. In fact, when he takes Primo to bath, he sings the ‘Babyflo Bath Time’ song to calm Primo down. In time for Father’s Day, Babyflo® launched the second webisode of its newest campaign, Let Love Flow with Babyflo®.
