How to making mommying fun and easy!

How to making mommying fun and easy!

Being a mom is not easy, those sleep deprived eyes and rest less body need not only rest but some happy moments too. What if I tell you that there are a lot of things which can make your life easier, well a lot easier I must say.

So today let me tell you few of my life changing things, I am sure you would love them too like I did.

  1. A stash of Advanced Cloth Diapers

Who like Laundry, well a lot of laundry I must say, coz if you use normal cloth langots, then you would have to change, all the clothes and the beddings as well every time the baby pee or pooh. And using disposable diapers is not something which is recommendable for all day use, because of chances of rashes and your baby’s bum exposed to hundreds of possible chemicals in the diaper gels. Also you are adding more to plastic waste which would not decompose even in 500 years.

So what to do? Try Cloth Diapers instead.

Using a cloth diaper is easy and simple, you just need to maintain a decent stash and a regular wash routine. They are as soft as cloth nappies just an upgraded version and easy to use just like a disposable diaper. It not only saves time changing clothes and sheets every time the baby pees or poops and the best part is that they not only good for the environment but also wallet as “One size” will fit a new-born till the baby is a toddler and potty trained

I personally use Superbottoms they have these super adorable prints available in New borns, Cover Diapers and All in One (AIO) range which is suited for babies from new born to upto 17 kgs. There are snap buttons to adjust size and provide a snug fit. the cloth diapers usually last for 3-4 Hours depending on baby’s wetting capacity. Also they are the only Indian Cloth Diapers that are tested and safe in accordance with #CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act), USA.

Over all their range I prefer Superbottoms plus AIO (heavy absorbency) , it is ideally suited for night-time diapering or for heavy wetting babies It has this trimmest crotch, making it look slimmer and comfortable for baby.

About Superbottoms Plus AIO

It contains one Superbottoms plus diaper with attached soaker having suede dry feel fabric which would touch the baby’s bottom, and 1 additional bamboo cotton soaker – attachable with a snap. This gives baby a stay-dry feel all through the night. There is also a pocket at the back wherein you may add an additional soacker if required.

What’s more? Have you checked their amazing quirkiest prints, I am sure you will be drooled to buy all and look out how cute they look on those cute little bum.

  1. A Comfy baby Carrier

IMG_20180318_105040_827

A good stroller is something which comes to everybody’s mind for easy travelling with a baby. But trust me, one thing that many new parents find precious when their newborns arrive is a baby carrier. As it can be used from Day 1 and the baby is close enough to kiss and hug to provide maximum love and warmth that it needed.

Much like swaddling, a good baby carrier keeps the baby tucked in as if in the womb. Furthermore, it keeps the baby close to heart which can be so comforting for her. Not only are they will help bonding in the early weeks and months, but they also gives freedom to get on with the many tasks involved in being a new parent.

There are several brands available with different variety of carriers available from Ring slings, wraps, Meh dai to full buckles which are well may be suited to from new-borns to toddler hood with minor additions of infant inserts.

I personally have loved SOUL SLINGS full buckle since the moment I tried it for the first time. Do you know you can even try the carriers before you buy!!

Yes, You read it right, SOUL has this Travelling Carrier Program (TCP) wherein they send you a carrier of your choice and you may try and test it for a couple of days before you make your choice to purchase.

Recently I tried SOUL SLING AnoonA from their latest gradient collection. The Material is 100% cotton with beautiful gradients in plain weave. Isn’t the colour gorgeous ??

About Soul Slings’s AnoonA

˜Anoona” (meaning one without flaws in Kannada) is an absolute stunner from the house of soul Slings as it suits perfectly from birth to toddlerhood with adjustable settings.

This all-cotton carrier offers 5 carry options newborn, front, front facing out, hip and back carries. Its fully adjustable panel cinches at the shoulder, mid-panel and waistband to ensure perfect support to the child at all times. The foldable neck support at the top of the panel is ideal for newborns. Offering the option of crossed (˜X”) or straight (˜H”) shoulder straps, Anoona fits adults from petite to plus-sizes. Buckled shoulder straps also allow users to use this carrier for a hip carry. Little details like a small pocket on the waistband for your essentials and a removable hood ensure that both you and your baby can step out in comfort! Isn’t it an investment for long term.

If you are looking to buy the carrier do visit their page www.soulslings.com as “Soul turns four” this month and they are running exciting offers on existing and new launches this entire Month of April.

  1. A Nursing gear or Accessories

One thing which all new mom finds difficult while travelling with baby is nursing. Though there are a lot of place like malls and airports where one can find a dedicated nursing room, but the ease a nursing garment would provide is unmatchable.

A hungry baby is most difficult to soothe and waiting to find a nursing place could be even more difficult is such situation. A nursing cover or a pretty nursing top/dress would be something a new-mom would love to get. In those first few months with a newborn, moms can be in that zone between “can’t look at my maternity clothes” and “can’t fit into much else.” A top can make nursing easy and makes her feel beautiful too.

Also if the New mom is a working mom and plan to resume work, what better than gift her something which could help ease her life and balance both her worlds. Fortunately the amendments in the new Maternity Bill allows a women 26 weeks of maternity leaves so that she can nurse the baby for initial 6 months which is highly recommended by all doctors to be completely breast feed. But like other moms I decided to continue feeding my baby for atleast a year. So one thing I swear by was a Brest Pump, it is available in both manual and electronic . But I prefer the Manual one. I bought it within a week of my baby was born as it helped me to keep a check on my milk supply as I was little cautious if my new born is having enough. Also during certain very tiring days I use to pump and refrigerate and my husband would wake up at night to feed the baby so that I could catch up on my sleep.

    Cloth diapering has certainly made my life colourful and beautiful. We are still using our stash from the baby days and he is almost 2.5 now. that just goes to show how much cloth diapers save for you and the environment.

    I love carrying my baby I have recently been introduced to baby wearing and it is magical holding my baby and I came across cloth diapering quite late in mommyhood but I guess I have kind of understood how it is done and I really like the fact that my baby has been getting less rashes after I started using cloth diapers
