Bambino sells individual Huggies Little Swimmers Baby Swimpants (size 3-4) for Rs.225 each (they also sell an entire pack for over Rs.2000). This worked really well for us because I wasn't sure how she would react to this particular product (my baby has very sensitive skin prone to mild eczema so I'm careful with topical… Continue reading Huggies Little Swimmers Leak-proof Swim Pants (Review)
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
Like I posted a 3 month-old baby schedule a while ago, I thought I'd share my 6 month-old schedule with all you mommas and dads in hopes that it will help you have an idea or what to look forward to or have a very tough guide that you could follow. But keep in mind… Continue reading 6 month-old Breastfed Baby Schedule (guide)
I wanted to introduce Ahalya to a baby cereal and the Cerelac 6months + was recommended by many. So I bought a pack and when I went through the list of ingredients, I found that it clearly states that there is sugar in the mix. And I am actively trying to avoid giving my infant… Continue reading Do you Know What is in the Cereal that you’re Offering Baby?

But if your baby is of healthy weight then you don't need to introduce… Continue reading Weaning 101

Lentils and other legumes pack lots of lean protein and fibre essential for baby's growth and a healthy digestive system.… Continue reading Introducing Lentil to Baby

She's been exclusively breastfed (on demand) up until now and I was scared to introduce her to anything else fearing she might reject it or be fussy. The midwife suggested that I start her weaning journey with 2… Continue reading First Day of Solids!
As she hits the peak of teething, Ahalya has started chomping down on literally everything. There seems to be a lot of discomfort and maybe even pain as her teeth cut through her gums and she grunts and grinds them together in an effort to relive the sensation. So, today I tried these teething sticks… Continue reading Bellamy’s Toothie Pegs Organic Milk Rusks (Review)
If you are able to, please, please do yourself a favor and get washable baby feeding bibs (like this one from IKEA) when you start feeding your baby. I'm sure they are available in Sri Lanka or you can purchase it via e-bay too. Ahalya's Sarasi Nandi got her a set of Kladd Randig Feeding… Continue reading IKEA Kladd Randig Feeding Bibs (Review)
