#ShareTheLoad - an initiative by Ariel India

Doing all household chores is not only the mom's job. Everyone in the house should involve in it. We do talk about gender equality very often but need to start that from our home itself, isn't it? Doing laundry is not a shame for the boys or the husband. We need to teach our kids to help each other in doing works, in this way the bond will be strong and relationship too. Recently I came across a wonderful initiative by Ariel, #ShareTheLoad which tell us that everyone in the house should involve in doing the laundry which I appreciate. Let me tell you about my house's story. I do involve my 5 year old son in doing the household chores whenever he is around me and by now he has started enjoying it. In the same way, my husband also does the cooking somedays. We do dusting the house together, we do the laundry together, like this. In my house, it is a very normal scene to work together everything. But I feel disturbed by seeing that, people still think doing household w

It's been a month now....

It's been a month now to my delivery . A little soul is in my house who wants all the attentions and time these days.  Well, it was my second pregnancy and of course the second baby.  To be very honest, it is not easy at all to manage two kids, specially when you are away from home and staying alone with husband.  The last 30 days were not the great ones but a rollercoaster life kind. The day was beautiful when the baby came but after that life became different which is very obvious .  Now after 30days everything seems settle down and we have started to schedule our new routine . When the new baby come, it is very necessary to handle the elder one as they do feel jealous.  That's what happened to my elder son.  He behaved very weirdly and all my time went by making him understand that how important and precious he is for us and we are not ignoring him.  Trust me it is really tough situation for a mother . Besides that I was in depression for few days and all credits g

How To Keep Your Newborn’s Skin Super Hydrated This Summer

Just as the winter season can be harsh on a newborn’s skin, so can the summer season. The dryness of the air is rather unforgiving on a baby’s delicate skin and can rob it off all its moisture, leaving it parched and dry. Since the summer season has already begun, I’ve been noticing my baby girl’s soft skin losing its smoothness and feeling rougher than ever, especially in the high-stress areas like elbows and knees. My regular lotion didn’t help combat the problem, which left me in a fix as I didn’t have the time to resort to home remedies and needed something quickly. Something that was intensely moisturizing without being too strong on my baby’s elbows and knees. So I put my research cap on and got to work to find out ingredients that a baby cream should have in order to be moisturizing and safe for use on such areas. In my hours of research, I found something really interesting. I discovered that it’s not just the ingredients that make a difference in the suitability and s

Baby Colic : What it is ? How to sooth down a colicky baby?

A mother can't see her baby in trouble. When the baby cry restlessly ,the parents also become restless to find out the reason.  During the early stages (from few days to born to 3-4 months old ) babies do fall sick very often.  Colic is one of the very common issue in new born babies or small babies.  If you wonder, what is a colicky baby then let me tell you it is nothing but a disturbed stomach of baby. Gas, indigestion cause colic in babies and it starts after 2-3weeks of the baby born. Gas, upset stomach can make the baby cranky and cry.  When the baby is crying for a longer duration and parents not able to calm the baby down after so much effort, then colic might be there . There are few things to remember to sooth down a colicky baby . Here I am going to list down 6 ways which I find useful for myself. 1.
