    An Ode to My Breast Pump..

    And just like that, my pumping journey has come to a close. I sold off my breast pump last week, and I think that made it real. It is funny, but I felt emotional giving it away. The only thing I asked was that she use it well, and stay committed in her journey to breastfeed. Pumping! Sigh. Yay I don’t have to do it anymore, but yeah, closing a chapter is always bittersweet. This is my tribute! (Am I loony or what?). An Ode to My Breast Pump All those long nights I stayed awake, Your buzzing my only company when everyone slept. Giving me reason and strength To…

    An Ode To Mommy Support Groups..

    There I was, terrified. A first time mom, confused and worried. Tons of questions and doubts, And no where to go. And then I found the perfect place, To ask my queries and clear my fears, Where I received not just answers But immense respect and encouragement too.. So many different names and cultures.. But together for a common purpose.. Mommies from all over, here, there and everywhere.. Giving a helping hand, an ear, and a shoulder to lean on.. There was no topic too taboo, For there was no shame or judgment.. From breastfeeding, to poops and sleeping, All questions received solutions.. I hadn’t ever met you before, But…

    The Mental Miracle called Motherhood!

    Last night was a good night; in fact it was a great night! And by great, I mean we only had to wake up about 4 times for feeds, and that was that. No crying, no fussiness, and back to sleep. And yes, that is what I call a good night these days. Because it is all part of being a mother, the lack of sleep, the odd hours, and all of the madness that goes along with it. Motherhood is not all roses and unicorns, and as much as the mainstream media tries to push that image, we need to understand that its just a façade. The truth is…

    Nursery vs Nanny

    Nursery vs Nanny. A question that many new parents have to think about. With my return to work coming up quick, I have to look into care for my lil one; I had to look at the options I had and pick what I believe suits us best. I knew I was not going to have family around, so then I have two options – nanny or nursery. After much consideration, I knew nursery was the better option, and my reasoning and thought process is as follows: TRAINING: I find it extremely difficult to hand over the care and wellbeing of my child to a single person who is possibly…

    To Work or Not to Work?

    “Oh my God! Your baby is so young – just two months old. How can you leave such a wee one and go back to work?” Haven’t we all – working mamas – heard this. How many of us have had to deal with this question from relatives, friends, or even the house-help? All of us wonder – to work or not to work? Going back to work was not even a topic of discussion in my house. We knew that I would definitely go back to work at the end of my maternity, and you know what? I was actually looking forward to it. The money was a factor,…
