Ella’s Kitchen Carrot Multigrain Rice review

May 10, 2017
Ella's Kitchen Carrot Multigrain rice review

I will be reviewing a few baby food brands and this will be the first in the series. Please don’t get me wrong- I still believe in home cooked food being the best as you know what exactly goes into your baby’s meal and in what hygienic conditions. However, with us being away on a vacation in Dubai and mostly being outdoors; it isn’t feasible to carry containers of cooked food everywhere with me. Also, I wanted to try these products myself to ensure their quality before offering it up on the website.

While looking for a stroller for Baby G, we wanted something that was extremely attractive, light weight and very practical. So we set down to thoroughly researching almost every stroller ( trust me- no joke!!) and zeroed in on the Mutsy. I must say, I’m happy that we made the best decision ever.

Lactation Tea Recipe

I made this tea and had it warm during my 40 days postpartum- I think it helped me build supply and lose some weight too. Of course, a good, nutrient- rich diet along with it will do wonders too. Please remember this is not the time to diet and lose weight- focus on building a healthy bond with your baby. Continue Reading…

DIY Toy Disinfectant

May 11, 2016
DIY toy disinfectant

Baby G loves to put everything in her mouth- toys, tv remote’s, diapers, her fist and even her foot! and every time she does this, it makes me paranoid. I washed all her toys, sometimes even steamed them to sterilise them before every use until it exhausted me and I resorted to only washing them or soaking in boiling water. This too is a little time consuming so I found a quick and completely non-toxic way to clean and disinfect my baby’s playthings. Continue Reading…

Breastfeeding

Is your milk supply really low?

May 2, 2016

My breastfeeding journey has had it’s fair share of ups and downs. I remember being utterly exhausted from continuous hour long feeds every single day and up until her 7th month- Baby G sucked all through the night despite being on solids. If I dared to pull away for a little relaxation, she would wake up and cry. She also preferred to sleep in my lap with nipple in mouth and the minute I put her down- she’d cry as if in intense pain.  During my pregnancy , I thought breastfeeding was as simple as attaching a baby to nipple where he’d meet with an endless supply of my bosom nectar. Boy! Was I wrong!. Breastfeeding is HARDWORK ( sorry mommy’s to be- not putting you off) but it’s also worth it. It connects you with your baby in an unexplainable way and when you cradle your baby and feed it- you feel intense love and immensely rewarded for nourishing your baby. Continue Reading…
