Nursing-on-vacation

Vacations can be exciting as they lift up the mood. Who doesn’t want to go for a holiday?! A holiday with a baby is not so easy, but it can be made joyful by proper planning and preparation. Before the baby, we concentrate more on packing the best-suited dresses, accessories and so on. Now, after baby, we have tonnes of baby stuff to pack, stroller, baby wear, and a bundle of diapers. The very first holiday with a baby is more of an experiment than a vacation. We hear a lot of suggestions, travel tips and much more from friends and family while planning for a trip with a baby. You can try this website too for super cool information and ideas.

  1. Plan the trip earlier and start to pack away ahead of time. Purchase clothes for the baby depending on the place you are planning to visit. For instance, a hot beach and seashore need a hat, sunscreen lotion, and baby swimsuit to be packed. Stuff a huge count of baby diapers, baby wipes and a diaper rash cream inside the suitcase. Packing things at least a few weeks in advance makes the final days of packing less stressful and overwhelming.
  2. If you are breastfeeding, don’t forget the breastfeeding pillow, feeding bottle, and the breast pump. Keep the required quantity of baby food in place. Check the baby’s vaccination schedule and makes sure that the baby is vaccinated up to date. Baby medicines, thermometer, and family first aid kit are other essentials.
  3. If you are flying, pack some of the baby’s favorite stuff, to keep him entertained. A book, teether or small toys can help the baby spend time happily on board. Be the last to board on the flight. Once you settle down, give the baby a pacifier, that helps to ease pressure in baby’s ears while taking off and landing.
  4. Ensure that the apartment or hotel room where you stay is completely babyproofed. You can also consider hiring a baby sitter. Thanks to the technology, as without even seeing the concerned person, we can hire them from the remote. This way, you can get some ‘couple’ only hour!
  5. Amidst all these, don’t forget to take care of yourself. Exploring a new area with your tiny traveler is a complete thrill. Click a lot of pictures, eat and sleep well and make beautiful memories with the baby.

Black-and-Brown-dolls

We keep hearing news about how toy manufacturers are thriving on the concept of gender stereotyping of the dolls. There is a surge in the number of pinks and blues in the market. But child psychologists often recommend parents to pick toys that are gender neutral. There is an increasing emphasis on the choice of a wide assortment of toys for both boys and girls. Dolls and dollhouses often come in pink and they are labeled as ‘toys for little girls’. But did you know that there are plenty of benefits to playing with dolls? There was a time when both little boys and girls owned plenty of dolls of various kinds. Only in recent times, we see this demarcation of toys meant for boys and those for girls. Here are some of the long term benefits for the kids if parents let them play with their dolls –

Social skills and better communication

Give a child a doll and observe how he or she plays with it. One thing that you would probably notice is that the kid starts talking with the dolls. Their social interaction skills tend to get better and so does their communication when they play with the dolls. And dolls make such wonderful options for kids to play when they are part of a group as well.

Empathy and responsibility

While playing with the dolls kids often engage in role play games or they make their dolls do little tasks. In their imaginative play, they learn the art of caring for someone and empathizing with someone. And when they are taking care of their dolls they also learn a sense of responsibility.

Parents get to learn about how their kids are feeling

Children often imitate their parents. They learn more from what they see rather than from what they hear. If kids have some secrets buried in themselves, things that are bothering them they might often not convey it to their parents due to several reasons. One reason could be their fear of how their parents would react and the other could be because they do not know how to express their feelings. But if you observe how a child treats his or her dolls and the type of stories the child makes up while playing with the dolls you would be able to gather plenty of cues about the child’s inner fears and feelings in general.

Being a Mom

Being a mom is ‘out of the world’ feeling. When we saw two lines in my pregnancy strip, I and my husband were on cloud nine, flying high, dreaming about our little bundle of joy. The pregnancy period was full of breeze, love, and care. My little hero arrived on the most awaited day. In my case, I have experienced the worst form of the post-pregnancy syndrome. How I overcame that stress is a different story. Here, in this article, I would like to write about preparing oneself to be able to cope up with post-pregnancy stress.

It is so important to mentally prepare a soon to be a mom for the hardships of motherhood. It is true that even a positive happening like having a baby can be overwhelming. Our body changes drastically in shape and size post pregnancy. Hormonal imbalance, mood swings, and sleep deprivation are inevitable. All these things altogether account for stress. Stress is the emotional and physiological response of our body to environmental changes. So, this is what you should do!

  • It is good to engage yourself in any physical activity like jogging and simple exercises to out race anxiety. Have some private time to do your favorite activity on the Internet, like checking out tools like QProfit System, just for a change. I know, it is hard to find ‘me’ time, still, plan and work it out.
  • Relationship with the partner is vital, as the caring words, admiration, and physical touch can heal the soul.
  • Being a mom is like, one time you will be free, and all of sudden you will be held up with changing diapers, feeding a crying baby and answering a call, all at the same time. Just relax and prioritize the tasks.
  • Weight gain is a very normal throughout the pregnancy phase and post, the baby birth too. Some mommies get stressed over their weight gain, but remember, shedding extra kilos is not an impossible act, proper diet and exercise can do the wonder, sooner or later.
  • The first one year is so crucial for the adaption and the overall development of the baby and it is essential for the parents to be in the baby’s side. A good parent should respond and adapt to the issues that the babies bring in to our lives. This is actually a life-altering, life-enhancing experience.

Being a parent is a bliss. Happy parenting!

 

 

Being a mom is a roller coaster ride

Being a mom is a roller coaster ride. We have ups and downs, at times our heart pounds, fear grips. At the end of the ride, we feel thrilled and achieved! Our life becomes meaningful and complete after a baby. Our priorities change, our usual schedule change and our world start to revolve around the little soul. A new mom is susceptible to post pregnancy syndrome, which is characterized by one or more symptoms. Weight gain is the most embarrassing thing a woman can undergo. Pregnancy weight, which is known as baby weight is so obvious. And getting back to shape after the baby is also important.

There were days I felt extremely down seeing celebrity moms, fit and chic, endorsing products on TV and the Internet. Weight loss journey is tedious but not impossible. Many mommies do the mistake of starving, in order to shed some pounds. Remember that starving makes you look sick and pathetic, you lose your glow and enthusiasm! Also starving is bad when you are still breastfeeding your baby. Stress, hormone gush too account for the weight gain.

Things to remember:

  • The first and foremost thing that should be done to reduce pregnancy weight is to accept and to stay happy in the new phase of life. Engage yourself in your favorite activities like freelancing, surfing through QProfit System, hanging out with friends just to refresh your mind and soul.
  • We should remember that we may or may not go back to the pre-pregnancy weight. It all depends on one’s body and the efforts taken to achieve the same. It is quite a long process.
  • Surprisingly, even breastfeed can help you lose some pounds.
  • Intake food with high fiber It helps to reduce weight by giving fullness and regulates appetite. Low Carbs, high protein food can also be beneficial. Strictly restrict the consumption of junk food. It is really hard for women like me who keeps on munching something most of the time. But in order to achieve something, self-control and self-care are predominant.
  • I am sure almost all of us have quitted the habit of alcohol consumption during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Just continue with it. Alcohol is terrible for our body and soul.
  • Hit the gym whenever you can. Regularly perform yoga, crunches, walk as much as you can.
  • Beauty is not defined by how good we look outside. Every mom is a beautiful angel!
