My cup of tea









This blog is a part of the Chai-a-thon blog train organized by 'The Momsteins'

I would like to thank Charu from "https://linktr.ee/themomsagas" for introducing me.

I would also recommend you to check out my fellow blogger, and friend KRiti Gupta's blog   https://desiflavorsoflife.wordpress.com and also Mamatha's blog http://allaboutmommying.com/ and read about her wonderful ' tea memory '.




Yes
For me, a cup of tea is a solution to my all problems.
There was a time, when i wasn't a tea lover. Butas it says opp do attract I got married to the biggest tea lover!
He used to have a cup of strong tea just before bed everyday( wierd though). One day he got his tea made and slept. I thought of not wasting it and so had it. I remain awake that whole night.
Slowly days passed and i started becoming a die hard tea lover
And finally the stage has came when i can't spend a day without tea. Not because i love tea, but because of the memories we have created with our morning tea.
Whenever in the morning tea tray, my cup is missing, it is a symbol to my husbandman that i am upset about something. And the best thing i like about him is that till the time i don't bring my cup of tea, he himself also doesn't drinks his own cup of tea even.
I love the bonding TEA has created between us both. 😊

Formula feeding doesn't makes you less of a mom!

Being a breastfeeding mom, it has been always been an emotional challenge for me to accept the fact that I'll have to transition my little one completely from breastfeed to solids and than to formula feed!
Breastfeeding has been more an emotional journey and the foremost way to bond with my son!
I never thought i will have to transition so early!
As my little one turned one, i started losing weight. I don't exactly know the reason but it was partially because i didn't had family help at my hand and had to handle everything single handedly: My husband's needs, house needs, my baby's needs and than breastfeeding and i merely got time to take care of my own meals!( well you can say i was being careless on my own health and i had to pay for it later)

It became almost physically impossible for me to fulfil all these needs and than there came a stage when i almost collapsed !
So finally was suggested by everybody that since daily chores and daily needs can't be neglected so i must stop breastfeeding! #Don'tjudge
It broke my heart to even think of it but finally i had to do it! Because if something happens to me i had no one to take care of my boy!
But then came ny family to my rescue and they helped me alot in weaning my son completely off breastfeed!
I can understand the heartbreak a mom feels when she has to formula feed their baby!
Alot of people were there with me to distract my son whenever he cried for me!
But it took him almost 1 week to forget his dream feed!( night feeding sessions)
He would cry in his sleep in hunger and would refuse to even taste formula feed!
I had sleepless nights in this #momguilt!
But slowly and gradually my son forgot about breastfeeding and all thanx ro support of my family!

Well i must say all my fears were baseless!
I always feared my little one would no more be bonded to me but frankly telling he has became more attached and we share a stronger bond now!
Not breastfeeding your baby doesn't makes you lesser of a mom!

So whatever the situations, stay strong moms!
Because you'll never do anything wrong for your babies!

Cloth diapers《---》Happy Bums








Everyone of us wants the best for our baby!
But when it comes to diapering, there has always been a dillema in my mind about disposables or cloth diapers as to what's better for my child (Like every mom i also want to give him the best of everything)
But every good brand for cloth diapering offering cloth diapers at such a high cost, it had became most difficult task for me to convinve everyone in house for CD specially when i can't explain the main difference b/w disposables and CD (Cost issue)

And then i came across a brand @fig-o-honey
The most cost effective brand for CD with a wide range of cute and cuddly prints whoch we can choose acc to our child's interests.
Frankly at first i was hesitant about putting my child into CD for his nap tym as he is a light sleeper. But thanx to @fig-o-honey my all the doubts were cleared in single use only!!

Following are few comparisons b/w disposables and cloth diapers:

1. A disposable roughly costs Rs.10 each and a baby uses 4 diapers approx every day and that makes 14600/- approx every years
Whereas a single Fig-o-honey pocket diaper costs approx 500/- (including insert) and that can be used from newborn to toddler size

2. CD are environment friendly unlike disposables

3. Unlike disposables CD would never cause any rashes or fungal infections on your baby's delicate skin

4. It's harder to potty train a child in disposables as he/she doesn't feels the wetness and can't communicate about that and they think it okay to pee without informing.

5. No chemicals are used inside or outside the layers of CD unlike disposables.


P.s. Every mom is perfect in herself and every parenting style perfect in its own!!
This blog is entirely my point of view and my shadow of mommying!
No offends please 😊

How moms evolve!!

Its xactly 19 days to the my lil ones first bday.

So y not spend these days with a #throwback to the memories of this best year of my life
15. 08. 2016. (The day u came into our lives) just 10 days before your due date (well his due date was janamashtmi last yr. 25.8.2016)
Well i was lucky one to have a normal delivery!(well having a c section also doesnt makes u less of a mother mommies!!)

I cant forget my first days with u as I wasnt guided properly about Breasfeeding (BF)and postpartum difficulties by anyone n as a result for thw first day i kept on thinking my baby is BF whereas he wasnt getting adequate milk cz of no vuidance n no massages and absolutely no supervision!!

Wen after 1 day he didnt peed thats wen my family was alarmed n took him to dr. And she informed that baby didnt had milk πŸ˜₯
At that moment i thought i ve failed as a mom!!
Initially he preffered top feed n absolutely refused BF which led to my postpartum depression!!
At the same tym i was staying at my in laws place (away frm my hubby too😣)

In short! I handled everything on my own n evolved out stronger for my lil one

Thats how moms are supposed to be!
More love n power to you new  mums and all the mommies!!

Power of mom

.
They say it takes a village to raise a child. But somehow everyone's not so  to havr a village n have to raise the child all on their own. 
Fighting with the postnatal depression, breastfeeding pains, sleepless nights n fatigue n almoat dropping to a point where i thought i lost it all.. my courage, my confidence, my carrier n almost everything.. suddenly one fine day brought the brightest ray of hope. The day wen i understood my baby's not my weakness but my strength. Wen i looked back n realised what n how i ve managed everything so well being alone amid the needless suggestions n taunts of hopelessly sitting ppl around me i realised that i lost nothing but gained more power
Physically n mentally i ve became more strong.. thats the day i decided to pay my baby fr everything he did to make me strong. He made me Mom. N nthing in this universe beats that.. 
Dedicated to him.. i m just going to start on my own business very soon
Info in my next blog 😊
Catch u up soon with my new setup

Happy mommying moms
More power to u !!
