Yinka Sonaike is a babypreneur ; our cover smile; he’s oh! so gorgeous.
Our Cover Smile- the Babypreneur inherited his name from his Mumpreneur mum- the lovely Mofolusade Sonaike who was also a cover pregnant mum for Semilore- the 8years old just before Babypreneur.
Babypreneur is only about 6 months old now and has erupted 2 teeth about 2 months ago his mum says; she hasn’t taken him to the dentist yet though we would encourage her to, so, little Yinka can get used to the dentist.
His Brothers, Ibukun 11 and Semilore 8 had visited the dentist a couple of times to have scaling and polishing done. However, Semilore had to have a too-friendly baby tooth out because it was not ready to say good bye but the adult teeth was just too impatient and having non of the ‘not-ready-to say- goodbye-business’ thus causing Semilore a lot of discomfort…so, a visit to the dentist to say bye bye to the baby tooth was inevitable.
Mumpreneur talks about Babypreneur a.k.a Yinka, still going through the teething process. So, around the time, he ran a fever for a few days and had a big boil on his arm- Grandma and other old folks were certain it was the teething issue but the doctor disagreed and concluded it was just coincidental. “I am leaning towards believing Grandma though because I have noticed another boil and another teeth is erupting” adds Mum.
“During his teething period, I haven’t used any teething powder for him because I believe they do more harm than good so I have only given him pain killers and I also breastfeed him to relieve his discomfort- He is doing great too”
“Knowing what I know about the importance of baby teeth and how they can be used to re-generate bone and the possibility of it being used to cure many health problems in the future; I will will not be throwing away Yinka’s baby teeth when they come out”
Yinka’s Brothers- Ibukun 11 and Semilore 8, do not have their baby teeth anymore as they are now grown, but she said she would have saved theirs if she had prior knowledge but anyway, there’s still Yinka’s to save.
On How she manages work and family?
“I do that through what I summarize as work-life integration. I keep my priorities in view and never hesitate to make the hard choices when I need to. I also ask for help when I need to, I don’t live with the illusion that I can do all things alone. I have built a support system that works for me”
Mofuloshade, a.k.a Mumpreneur is more deliberate about keeping her baby’s Milk teeth for any future need- Hopefully, the need doesn’t arise but, she might as well keep it. She is now a more deliberate “tooth fairy”.
Trust us, when we say she is a strong supporter of all things women, supporting them to be the best and get the best of their lives and their families. Connect with her on IG @mumpreneur or join her facebook group Mumpreneur. You’d be glad you did.
