“Motherhood is the most exhausting, emotional, rewarding and a life enhancing journey a women can take“. By Charlotte Pearson
However this exhausting journey can be made smoother and beautiful if the choices we make for our baby are right. Well it ain’t as easy as it sounds. With all sorts of suggestions knocking your door after you deliver your baby, it can be overwhelming for the new mom to make choices that suits the baby best.

That moment is still fresh in my mind when my heart skipped a beat, I jumped with joy and wanted to shout out loud and tell the world and most importantly my partner in crime. I looked twice, thrice just to ensure I wasn’t dreaming and rushed out, calling my husband to believe what I saw was right.
Yeah this was the day when those pink lines brought me immense joy and happiness and I started counting days. The feeling can’t be expressed in words. It’s the most wonderful memory of my life and even beautiful is the journey that began and went on for the next 9 months when my bundle of joy arrived.
Becoming a #FirstTimeMom can be an emotionally intense experience. No matter how much you prepare for motherhood, it comes with its own set of surprises and horrors.
I still remember from the day we broke the news to close family members and friends, there were innumerable advices that came our way and left us confused.
We already had a huge list ready and we shopped for almost everything that we dreamed of. Having a first child is overwhelming and just like any other first time parent we too got caught up in the world of advertising and bought everything possibly we could, to prepare for our first baby. But the doubt of ‘am I doing it right ?’ kept popping in my mind from time to time.
Motherhood comes with its own set of challenges. While I was still trying to get through one at a time, a few weeks down the line and I had to get my little bundle of joy treated for his rashes. Those few days were highly stressing to see my lil child go through pain.
I realised in the midst of doing everything right, I went wrong with the choice of wipes I used then. As a new mum, I was clueless that something as tiny a wipe can have a big impact on my baby’s sensitive skin.
So sometime back when I heard of first-time water wipes by mothersparsh, I just wished if they were born a few years back my first time experience with first-time water wipes would have made my motherhood journey more wonderful.
Newborns are needed to be wiped almost every hour. In order to keep their skin clean and germfree, we often rely on wet wipes as it’s comparative hassle free. Wipes with any kind of chemicals can disrupt the sensitive skin of a baby and cause skin irritation leading to rashes, dryness, redness and more.
Thanks to Mothersparsh for innovating India’s first water wipes that are made of 100% plant fabric and contains 98% water. These wipes are free of alcohol, paraben or polyester that are the main culprits of skin irritation. Clinically proven, these 100% biodegradable wipes feels soft like cotton on your baby’s skin keeping them smooth and silky.
Now you can never go wrong with the choice of bottom wipes for your Lil babies and give them the experience they desire at this tender age.

I am glad to have introduced to a brand that offers purity and safety for me and my family. Here’s a list of products that I have used from Azafran and felt totally satisfied with the product quality. Do read my review as below –

The body wash and shampoo is formulated keeping in mind the gentleness of a baby’s skin. It cleanses the skin and hair gently leaving them hydrated after every wash. The goodness of coconut, mineral-rich water and glycerin in its organic form ensures the babies skin is soft and supple after bathing. Most importantly the product is paraben and sulfate free making it safe for everyday use.
Azafran’s Eco-friendly and non-toxic crayons are made of organic waxes of palm and soya. These square shaped crayons are formulated to improve motor skills in children and it’s absolute fun for the child to stack these into building blocks. The crayons are non-sticky, non-greasy and are waterproof. My little one had fun coloring with these crayons that made with soy butter and food grade colors.
Tropical Breeze Liquid Laundry Detergent
6-in-1 eco-friendly liquid detergent is a great choice if you are looking at removing tough stains and unpleasant odour from dirty clothes. Made with ingredients derived from plants, it’s gentle on all kinds of fabric, cloth diapers and even on hands if you choose to hand wash instead in the washing machine.

Well, Not many get to watch their favourite movie way before its release. But this mom son duo got lucky to have invited by JAMM’s Network for the pre-screening of an eye-popping animation series ‘Hotel Transylvania 3- A Monster Vacation’ this Sunday afternoon, Soon to be released in Cinemas by Sony Pictures.
Have you ever fallen in love with Monsters?
Yeah, you heard it right, ‘MONSTERS.’ I fell in love with them when I first saw Hotel Transylvania part 1. Monsters never sounded so cute, witty yet sensible in spite of their weird looks.
If you have seen the last two parts of this rib-tickling monster series, you wouldn’t want to miss out on the threequel. Even if you haven’t, you would surely want to catch up on them too. The feel-good comedy takes you on an adventurous ride and leaves you surprised with fantastic visuals, animation, and special effects.
Although the sequel was about Dracula’s grandson Dennis being trained to fit into their vampire tradition. This one is about the Dracula and his fun date..!! A beautiful surprise planned by the daughter Mavis, turns out to be the most thrilling and romantic experiences for Dracula, and he gets zinged.. ( To know more on Zinged you’ve got to watch the film) I wouldn’t reveal much, but the whole experience of a luxurious cruise party is so damn real that you wanna get up and dance right in the middle of the hall.
This wonderfully animated flick will crack you up with their creepy, comic characters, whacky moves, and funny dialogues. The romance is kept pretty clean and limited to flirting and dancing. Ideal for a family watch, the film has more than a couple of beautiful messages for kids as well as adults. Embracing diversity in spite of their differences, forget and forgive leaves a positive impact on the audience. Daughters love, and concern for their dads is well known to the world. Mavis is no different, so what if she is a monster daughter.
The last 30 min of the movie peps up the mood and urges you to get on your feet and dance to the famous tune of Macarena and other catchy tracks. On a separate note, I want to get hold of that DJ for my night outs.
So book your tickets now and enjoy the upcoming film that will hit the cinemas on July 20th. I am sure you don’t want to miss the fun and excitement it has in store for you and your kids.
‘Mommy day out with my movie buff at the pre screening of Hotel Transylvania 3’
Motherhood can be tricky and exhausting especially for new moms who are yet to learn the tricks of the trade. Yes, raising a baby constantly puts you in a place where you are questioning yourself if you are doing it right.
Lack of information on the right product for babies can worsen your experience of raising a new born. One such instance I can talk of from my motherhood experience is when I saw my baby suffer of the diaper rash. I still remember the first time when I spotted a red swollen rash on my baby’s bum. And it gets even worse when you treat it with a wrong product. I remember using a baby talc all over his bottoms and thighs thinking it will keep the area dry and the rash with disappear.
To my surprise, the rash spread all over the diaper area and became worse by the day. And as a mother it’s the most heart-breaking thing to see your little baby cry of pain. I couldn’t but blame myself for not being able to treat it well before time.
I am sure many of us mums out there struggle to find the best baby diaper rash cream for their babies that can protect their babies skin from rashes and also heals the faster.Before we get to the solution of a problem, let’s understand the root cause.
What is diaper rash?
A skin irritation caused at the bottoms usually anywhere in the diaper area, that might appear as a small rash or red patch on the skin at the beginning but worsens and takes form of blisters if not treated well in time. You can look out for these rashes on the buttocks, under thighs and around the torso.
What causes diaper rash?
There could be several reasons other than the fact that baby’s skin is super sensitive and is prone to any kind of skin infections. The fact that it’s referred to as diaper rash itself states its main cause. Newborn babies live in diapers be it disposable or cloth diapers. Inspite of all the care taken by diaper companies, the baby’s skin is never 100 percent dry. The moisture and wetness of urine and potty are good enough reasons for a baby’s irritated skin.
Chemicals used in the diapers could also be a major cause of skin infection causing rashes. Some disposable diapers use dyes and perfumes other than chemicals which is again harmful to baby skin.
Cloth diaper is a better option to avoid such chemical reactions with the baby skin, however sometimes negligence on the cleaning part of cloth diapers can cause skin reaction too. Also an extra care is required to be taken while using the detergent as it can harm the baby’s skin as much.
How to treat diaper rash?
The first thing after identifying the diaper rash is to treat it correctly. People often make a mistake of buying creams over the counters and applying. This may worsen the condition and a simple rash might turn into a painful infection that would require even more care and time to heal.
There are several products doing the rounds in the market. With the availability of so many different creams it’s tough to pick the right one for your baby.
Newly Launched Caladryl Diaper Cream
Here’s introducing you to CALADRYL diaper cream by Piramal health care. Caladryl has already made its mark for treating skin allergies in children and babies. Caladryl is the market leader in the anti-allergy and anti-itch topical application segment. It is India’s most trusted and prescribed lotion for any kind of skin allergies and works wonders not just for kids but adults too.
The newly launched Caladryl diaper cream for diaper rashes comes with the same expertise as the mother brand. Caladryl Diaper Cream is here to bust the myth that “diaper rash creams need to get absorbed by the skin”. As per the experts “Unlike a moisturising cream which gets absorbed, a diaper rash cream needs to form a protective layer on the skin to work effectively”.
This uniquely formulated cream has the properties of an anti-allergy and provides fast relief and rapid healing to babies from diaper rashes.
Why Caladryl diaper cream ?
1) Unlike conventional diaper creams, Caladryl diaper cream acts 2 times faster to protect and soothe baby’s skin from diaper rash.
2) It is dermatologically tested for sensitive skin and is gentle on baby’s skin.
3) It contains zinc oxide, an ingredient which is approved by the US FDA as a skin protectant and is an ideal component for diaper cream.
4) Ingredients like olive oil and glycerin are mild on baby’s skin and helps sooth the skin faster while keeping it soft and supple.
5) Unlike a moisturising cream, Caladryl diaper cream is specifically formulated to be a thicker cream that forms a protective layer on the skin and blocks out the wetness from urine that helps heal the rash faster.
I completely rely on Caladryl for any sort of skin allergies be it for my child or myself. The years of experience with the mother brand has my trust and I would not think even twice before I recommend this outstanding formula to my well wishers for baby skin. The fact that it comes from a reputed brand that’s been tried and tested for ages gives this product a big thumbs up.
