We had a little bump yesterday; we went from sitting to falling off to our side and knocking our head against a hard ledge. There was swelling, a little bruising and a very small would. I was glad that I had read through basic baby first aid when it happened and checked to see if… Continue reading Minor Head Injuries in Babies
If you have a little baby like mine, chances are he or she would spurt out her vitamin/medicine drops whenever you have to give it to him/her. It didn't matter if I was using a dropper or a syringe, some days it all went to waste - out the liquid oozed as soon as I… Continue reading How to offer Vitamin Drops to Baby – and actually Succeed!
My husband and I travel a lot with the little one. So this is my solution to bathing her when we stay at hotels. It works well if you have a big sink in your room. So what I do first is wash the sink with baby soap and hot water. Then I let it… Continue reading Washing/Bathing your Travelling Infant
A good way to measure if the toy you buy for your infant or toddler is safe is to see if it (or its removable parts) can fit very easily through the tube of a toilet paper roll. This also includes buttons on a soft toy or the plastic handle of a rattle. While the… Continue reading Is that Toy Infant-safe?
At three months old, Ahalya has grown accustom to a somewhat reliable schedule. Some days it all goes according to plan. Other days, especially when she's going through a growth spurt or a wonder week, it's a disaster. She even wakes up in the middle of the night for a feed. I haven't included this… Continue reading 3 month-old Breastfed Baby Schedule (guide)
This photo was taken on the 1st of June. That was the day she first laughed out loud. I couldn't capture that exact moment though. I was just too fascinated and excited to even look at my phone. We were playing and I laughed at something she did and she laughed back so loud. I… Continue reading She Laughed out Loud!
Ahalya is 3 months old tomorrow. And it's the perfect time to introduce her to a baby play gym. Not only do they provide entertaining distractions (that help you get little things done around the house) but also help in the physical development of your infant. This particular play gym has colourful foam arches with… Continue reading Play Gym Time
It started at 2.7 weeks. Drool. Constant drool dripping down her chin onto her neck and chest. A week later, we had a saliva rash on our hands. I was constantly wiping saliva off her face and cursing all baby rashes to the depths of hell. I mean how many did I have to deal… Continue reading Help! It’s the Drool.
I always use a soft baby wipe cloth when cleaning the little one’s ears and tongue. I didn't do this the first few weeks but noticed that they could do with a gentle scrubbing as she started her third month. I wet the wipe cloth in warm water and gently wipe the inside of baby's… Continue reading Cleaning little Ears and Tongue
At her last doctor’s visit, Ahalya's pediatrician told me that she had severe dry skin. At the time, the heat was unbearable and this probably attributed to it. I was also using the Johnson's baby lotion which really didn't do much. But I was also under the impression that creams and ointments were bad for… Continue reading Severe Dry Skin is worrying me sick…
