She was my baby’s nanny, but she had dreams too.

Pooja, with big beautiful eyes and stark features like any other female would look hailing from Kolkata, knocked my door. But, she wasn’t just any other female and that was my only wrong judgement. I was stressed, overworked, over pumped and by now depression was hitting me right in the face after the delivery. And …

Why I thought too much before beginning my toddler’s Preschool?

Imagine that moment  when you have to send out your little one all by herself into this big world! It’s the same little one you have not let out of your sight since her birth, the same little one you cuddle and kiss a zillion times in a day, the same little one around whom …

Confession of my biggest parenting learning

That midnight was making me uneasy of something I had been retrospecting for a while. It was time for me to accept that I was wrong for once. 

Parenting is definitely not easy when you have ten tasks to juggle with at the same moment. Being a mother you do not only have to mother the child, but also sometimes the father. In the process of proving yourself, you lose yourself. And the same happened with me. I have been doing up with household & baby chores, baby care, washing, exclusive breast feeding and everything a home would run on.

In a day from the diary of those days with my little one, I put her on a couch and turned to grab something right at the reach of my arm.
But my assumption proved wrong. She fell with a thud on the floor. That was her first fall and my first rise as a mother.

Apart from your spouse or family offering you suggestions to watch the child first, when multitasking you cannot explain your plight. It’s sad but hard to understand that to serve the family first, you sometimes keep the child on second priority. The attitude “it’s okay, I will do it” sometimes hits us back too hard. And this is all I want to confess today. Life schedules have become such that we unknowingly prioritise things and take everyday a little for granted.

For example you must have noticed, the first day you would have breastfed your baby or the first meal you made for him, isn’t the same everyday. Routines become repetitive and monotonous as moms face issues with postpartum, weight, depression, epidural aches, obesity and many more. Amidst everything, we do forget that the baby would not remain an infant forever. He will outgrow the first years like a wind. Agree or disagree, but as a mother, we are more responsible for our acts than the father of the little one. Because our acts will be recognised and so will they be judged and criticised too. Be cautious at all times, even 100% attention and care for the little one is also never enough.

Parenting learnings can be many but learning from it is a way to rise and shine as parents and become better each day.

The new fad – smart devices, gaming and gadget addiction amongst children.

Pacifiers. We are sure all you mommies know when to use and where just when the baby wants. But, ever heard of modern pacifiers? Yes they do exist. They are even smarter versions and quicker solutions for when your baby throws tantrums. A smart phone is termed as a modern pacifier in today’s world. Ever …
