Good parenting is more than breastfeeding ( My Winning Story on World Breastfeeding Week Celebration)

Few minutes before I read what Deepika felt not being able to breastfeed the baby long. I am also a mother of same group " Formula Feeding Mamas group" :). For initial 3 months everything was absolutely okay for me but after that I as joined my office back, gradually lactation stopped. In my absence Vibhu was formula fed so he got into habit of it. He was cranky when I tried to hold him for breastfeed after reaching home. As lactation was limit, he was not getting enough to feel satisfied. I was also going mad why I am not able to produce enough breast milk in-spite of taking medication. After trying my best to nurse my baby when results were thumbs down, I took a decision to opt formula feed completely for Vibhu. But when you can't breastfeed the baby, you get into depression, honestly. I was also in same situation depressed, unhappy and heavy hearted.

Here are some points which helped me to come out of this situation :

1. Give yourself a break : Try not to beat yourself up, but do take the time. You need not to feel sad, mad, or any other emotion you may be experiencing.Stop "Mourn your inability to breastfeed".

2. Talk about your feelings: Talk to you doc. Talk to your husband and good friends. They can be a great sounding boards for your feelings. You'll feel light.

3. Spend more time with baby: Breastfeeding is a wonderful way to strengthen your connection with your child, but it isn't the only way. While you are feeding the baby, hold the little one close and make eye contact. Skin to skin touch is very important for establishing bonding with the baby. Show you love in whatever way you could. Talk with the baby. Smile as much as you can.

Final note, always remember that your relationship with your baby won't be based solely on your ability to breastfeed him/her. How you respond when he/she cries, how often you hold and play with him/her, and how you are as a mother matter more than how you feed him/her.

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

Be Healthy With Infused Water And InstaCuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Two things are in my mind mostly these days: Having a healthy Lifestyle and Staying Happy.
Happiness and good health are very much connected to each other, isn't it? If you are happy your health remains good. And if you are healthy, you keep on increasing your happiness. The easiest trick to stay healthy is to have a good water intake every day. However, as simple as it looks, for most of the people, drinking sufficient water every day is a task. They somehow ignore this very essential need of the human body. Every single cell in our body needs water to function properly. The result of less water intake is eventual dehydration, dull face, fatigue, bloating and weak immune system.

Can drinking water help you stay healthy? Spoiler alert, YES IT CAN!

Now, if you are bored of having the plane, tasteless water, then you must know about INFUSED WATER. Infused water is adding different kinds of fruit, vegetables, and herbs to water and letting it settle for some time. This way, all antiox…

The Young Chronicle - A Personal News App For Kids

Our kids these days are spending a good amount of time checking and using today's smartphone. And the most amusing thing is kids are getting, even more, smarter to understand this whole world of apps, games, selfies and video recording. In no time they understand how such and such app works. In very less time, they skill those gimmicky games and challenge us showing the score. However, this screen time should be controlled for good health of a child. For parents, it is a responsibility to keep an eye on what content kids are watching, what types of games they are playing and what things they are sharing on social media.

 Being a new generation people, we can't live separated from our phones. Neither can we keep our kids completely away from using phones. But what we can do is to facilitate things that can be helpful for kids even if they come in the form of phone apps and games. Educational apps and informative games can provide our kids much-needed insight and knowledge. One…
