Few things I learned about diapering babies

My son is 2 now but he is not yet potty trained. He even gives false alarms for peeing so in his crèche he remains in diapers. It's been one and half years since I am buying/ordering diapers. And I am in love with the person who came with the idea of diapers. These little, nearly cloth type pieces have made parents' life so easy and I now hardly find anyone who doesn't use diapers for her babies. With each diaper I changed ever in my life, I learned a lesson. It's no less than mastering any skill which gets perfection after each attempt. These are few funny, ridiculous, possibly useful, and hilarious things I learned about diapering my son:
1. If you want to dress your baby in his nicest and most expensive outfit, never forget to make them wear diapers. The probability of blow-out is more in the case of new outfit.
2. Be careful if you baby is relating to cartoon characters printed over diapers. If you change the brand you may have to face a denial of wearing them from your baby
3. Don't make your baby wear his/her diaper until the last moment if you are going for a party. Babies can sense than mumma is now doing makeup and the same moment they make you change them.
4. If your toddler is standing very still and is quiet, he/she is probably pooping.
5. If your toddler is hiding in a corner, he/she is probably pooping with thinking something.
6. If your baby has a weird smile or making a strange face, they are for sure pooping.
7. If you are at your relative's place and you found people sniffing the air subtly, you should probably check your baby’s diaper.
8. Always ask before you put a poo-diaper in the garbage at someone else’s house.
9. Never go for a car ride or road trip without an extra pair of clothes for yourself. For baby you anyway carry them but you can't enjoy the trip in wet/soiled cloths.
10. When you start per-ordering diapers, you should know that your mind has accepted that they are simply a boon and you can’t miss ordering them.
11. Most of the times babies poo in fresh diapers.
12. When you are changing your newborn, you feel poo in a diaper is better. But when you start changing your toddler, you feel poo in any diaper is yuck, no matter how expensive the diaper is.
13. Be cautious when changing your baby boy. It goes far.
14. Someday you may face a diaper situation when you feel gross and you wouldn't even know where to begin cleaning. But take a deep breath and concentrate on the smallest area. You will eventually get it all clean.
15. If your toddler has understood potty-training quickly, it’s not because you are awesome at it, you are really lucky.
I am still waiting for the time when I would stop ordering extra stock of diapers. But I think I'll miss them. Diapers are really best friends for mothers. Are not they?

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

Food Habits That I Am Going To Change This Year

This post is for New Year resolutions blog train. The blog train is hosted by Vartika, Alpana and Prerna,  sponsored by Pandora's Box and Recipe Dabba. My topic is Dr Feelgood - How are you planning to tweak your Food Habits for 2019 .  

We all desire to stay healthy and happy. Yes, happiness is very much connected to our health. But today's sedentary lifestyle has made us fall for quick meals and unhealthy choices. Over the course of time, these quick things give us side effects that rather don't go quick. Eventually, we fall prey to weight loss industry which asks for cutting sugar, salt, oils, carbs, dairy product and almost everything which is there in our kitchens since our grandparents time. We run after different diets (Ketogenic diet, Vegan diet, Raw food diet etc) and we even believe in schemes like having dinner before sunset, getting rid of rice, keeping a distance with fruits and avoiding any type of fat.

Is this way of keeping ourselves fit sustainable in the …
