Friday Family Spotlight: Meet Natalia’s Family!

Friday, September 28th, 2012



Get ready to meet one super cool and very active family! I really enjoyed learning more about Natalia’s family and hope you do too!

Who are the members of your family?
Daddy Dylan teaches traditional Choy Li Fut kung fu 蔡李佛 and Yang Tai Chi 太極拳. He is hoping to be Sifu (head teacher) of his own school someday. I am a first-time Mommy of Brandon Koa as well as a Ballet Instructor and Certified Massage Therapist. We are currently staying with my father (Brandon’s GongGong) to get out of debt and to be with family during this important transition into parenthood. It has been such a blessing for all of us!
How did you meet your significant other?
We met when I entered Eastern Ways Martial Arts school in Folsom, CA. We have been together and trained together ever since.

What is your favorite Mom’s Milk Boutique Product?
There isn’t a top favorite, I shop at MMB for nearly everything we need: Laundry Detergent/RLR, Dryer balls, Baby Bits, Bravado Nursing bras/tanks, Baltic Amber jewelry, Moby Wrap, Snappis, Naturally Luxe Wool Wash bars, Planet Wise, Wean Green, Sloomb (sustainablebabyish) UnderWoolies is my newest love!

What is your favorite baby carrier and why?
I actually have three favorites: Moby Wrap for comfort, Ergo Baby for back carry, and Maya Wrap (ring sling) for easy in-n-outs. My spouse says I am his favorite baby carrier. 😉

What is the best and worst parenting advice you have ever been given?

Best: Enjoy every moment and stage of baby’s life!

Worst: “Supplement with formula.” Even our pediatrician said it was “ok” to do so! However my Mom encouraged us not to as formula can negate the positive effects of human milk. My mother is an International Lactation Consultant and RN, so we get TheBestAdvice!

What is one of your favorite quotes?

~The oyster turns into a Pearl the sand which annoys it~
