Hi, how is monsoon treating you ? For me monsoon brings in hearty warm soups, finger chips and a warm cup of black coffee. This time Anshika is fed a lot many variety of soups since she has cold and cough. She started rejecting almost everything fed and is in the mood for only soupy-liquid consistency. No worries . Let her eat what she wants to have; I decided. So...

Anshika is having a blast here in Kerala with her grand parents . No restrictions , lots of pampering and plenty of attention. As its raining heavily day and night, she has contracted cold, cough and congestion. So thought of making ginger coffee or chukku kaappi for her. Though adults can have this herbal concoction with a little bit of coffee powder , my version...

I am in Kerala right now along with my daughter. My cousins , relatives and neighbours come to see us . The first question they ask me is “Why is your daughter so plain?”. I wondered “Is there a plain baby and complexed baby ?”. “No”. They continue “ Put kajal in baby’s eyes. She should be like Meenakshi ; you know eyes having the shape of a fish,...

As Anshika reached her 10th month , we were like “ Phew just 2 more months for her to turn one. Time just flew ! ”. I guess you are in the same stage too.

If your baby is still not accepting solid...

Post baby, when I resumed office I had little time to take care of myself or to care about what I was wearing to office. There were days where in I have gone to office without even pressing/ ironing my dress :P. But I know there are many moms who would like to get into that mould all over again of dressing to office confidently though they have areas of baby fat...

Editor’s Note : Yamuna is one of my readers who believes in everything home-made for her bundle of love. Even she and her hubby refrains from having packaged and processed foods. While chatting with her in FB , I was amazed to see the efforts she put into giving the right , pure and home made food for her baby. I so so demanded the recipe of this one, as I wanted...

As I told in this post of monsoon care for babies , viral infections and other illnesses related to it rise up during monsoon. Stomach flu also known as gastroenteritis is the prime among them. It is also known as D and V as its associated with diarrhoea and vomiting. Stomach flu is caused by rotavirus and persists for days . It can be cured with proper medication,...
