TIPS TO KEEP OUR BABIES SOFT SKIN SAFE




Once a new born baby enters the family everyone at home is ecstatic and the whole house vibrates with enthusiasm and joy. Babies have that charm in them that can even make a sad person happy. Their cute face, smile and antics are enough to brighten our day and make us happy. But with joy comes responsibility. And as parents it is our responsibility to ensure that our babies are safe, protected, and healthy and get a good upbringing.

A baby’s skin is delicate and fragile and climatic changes, dust, Sun, etc may have a harmful effect on our baby's skin leading to infections. So it is necessary that we take adequate steps to ensure that our baby's skin is safe and protected.

I am sharing below 5 things that can be done to keep a baby’s soft skin safe.

1. One of the most essential thing that has to be done to keep our babies skin safe is to ensure that there are no sharp objects near them. Babies are intuitive by nature and they often grab objects that look new to them. Hence scissors, knifes, needles, pointed objects, etc and even toys which have pointed edges have to be hidden. We have to keep a close watch over them and ensure that they play only with toys that are soft and have rounded edges.



2. The baby products that we use also have to be mild and chemical free. I use Himalaya products as they are mild and gentle and keep the baby’s skin soft and safe.




3. A good oil massage before a warm water bath is also very important. Massage using baby massage oil revitalizes the baby's gentle skin and keeps it soft and supple. Further regular oil massage is known to give strength to the muscles and bones. And applying a baby lotion after bath is also very essential as it moisturizes the baby's skin and keeps it soft and fragrant.




4. Proper clothes according to the climate is also very important. During summers, sweat and dust might irritate the baby’s gentle skin and hence it is better to use soft cotton clothes that are roomy and allow air to freely pass through the skin. Thick and synthetic clothes do not allow air to circulate and might cause rashes on the baby's skin. And during winters it is necessary to keep the baby well covered with thick and woollen clothes. Not properly covering the baby might expose her to cold and infections.



5. Diaper rash is another problem that most mothers worry about. To overcome this it is necessary that the diaper is changed every 4 or 5 hours and at once after a poop. And it is essential to use a good branded diaper that keeps the baby’s bottom free from infections. I use Pampers as it allows air to circulate and is soft and and comfortable for my baby.

MY DREAM

“ The dream is not that you see in sleep, dream is which does not let you sleep ” – Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. How true and how deep is this quote from the great scientist and former president of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. We all dream while we are asleep but the real dream – the dream which you wish to fulfill – the dream in which you have set your hearts on – will not “let you sleep”. When I was a kid, whenever someone asked me as to what I wish to become, I would say “I wish to become a doctor”. As I grew up, my interests and goals started to differ, from doctor, it shifted to becoming an Engineer or a teacher.  After completing school, I was really confused as to what I really wished to become. My father and teachers at school suggested that I take up a degree course and go on to do masters. This would help me in taking up teaching as a profession. I was academically good but shy and timid. I would get goose bumbs even on standing in front of my own class

STORY FROM THE LITTLE ONE

Stories are an integral part of my life. I often tell my daughter stories during meal times to keep her glued to her seat. The idea of story telling came as she used to run here and there while eating making me run behind her every time to feed her a spoon of food. Thus feeding her had become a difficult task for me and finally I decided to put an end to it by engaging her with small stories. The idea clicked and she started asking me to tell her stories every time during her meals. Every day objects, things that she saw became subject of my story and in this way through stories, I started teaching her new things and passing information to her about birds, animals, vegetables, etc making meal times playful and interesting. This took away a huge burden from my shoulders as she would get engrossed with the stories and eat without much fuss. I also started buying educational toys and looking for new objects and things in my home to keep her occupied. The objects and cr

SHARE THE LOAD

The world in which we live today has evolved and several changes have taken place. Earlier men used to go to work and women would stay indoors and do household works. At that time to some extent the work was equally divided between men and women. But in these modern times, woman too have become independent and have joined the workforce. Many men too are happy with this change and have welcomed it with open arms. But one thing that has not changed is their thinking. While they are happy to see woman as an independent and earning member, they fail to understand that the responsibility and workload on woman has now doubled. They not only have to look after their office work but also household work. Isn't it then the responsibility of the men to take active part in doing household chores so that the work gets balanced between the two.   A recent survey conducted by third party for Ariel has found that most households feel that doing household chores especially laundry is a woman&#
