Miss Universe 1999 First runner-up Miriam Quiambao willingly shared to public her experience of being a mother to her newborn son named Elijah.
KAMI learned that the meaningful moment happened during the beauty queen’s interview in a recent “Magandang Buhay” episode.
The hosts of the said daily morning talk show were able to meet Baby Elijah as Miriam narrated several facts about her son.
She shared that her baby only weighed 5 pounds during his last check-up.
During the interview, Jolina Magdangal asked the full-time mom if she does some kind of massage for her baby considering that she has a degree in Physical Therapy.
"Physical Therapist ako nung grumaduate ako sa college tsaka matagal ko nang naririnig yang mga mga baby massage na yan. So nagresearch ulit ako kung paano siya ginagawa at kasama na yun sa routine namin," Miriam stated.
"Kapag mga bandang late afternoon na, 5:30 o 6 pm, oras na ng paligo niya so papaliguan ko siya ng warm water. After no’n, ipapat-dry ko siya, bibigyan ng diaper tapos ibababy-massage ko siya," she added.
Miriam then proceeded to demonstrate how she does the baby message on her son by using a teddy bear.
She said that in performing baby massage, a sequence should be followed and it is necessary to ask permission from the baby before doing so.
"Kasi kailangan ine-enjoy niya. Kapag bad mood siya o kaya fussy, edi hindi maganda yung bonding ninyo, diba? Baby massage is really for bonding," she quipped.
Miriam also stated that children up to 12 years old can also be “baby-massaged.”
Here is the video of the interview:
