Louis Vuitton, the master luggage craftsman, has unfortunately not devised a system where a baby could just be packed up and taken for a journey! If this were the case, it would be all too simple.
However, travelling with a baby , though daunting, is not impossible , especially since most babies have already had their first outing to the post-natal clinic or the paediatrician‘s by the age of 1 week!!! Continue reading
Well, it’s been 16 weeks now since Keshav came into our lives and a fortnight since I last blogged about my Granny days.This is mainly because we’ve been dealing with the circadian rhythms of Keshav which has totally messed with ours.

That is the question that has plagued all mothers and pediatricians alike. When I was a mother it was the rage to put the baby on solid food as soon as possible. As long as we breast fed the baby for 12 weeks it was fine. We were not only encouraged to give formula feeds from day 1 but were also encouraged to give water, gripe water and vitamin drops.
Thirty years on and I find all that’s changed. Mothers today are encouraged to breast feed exclusively for 6 months. This is supposed to give the child a life long immunity against obesity and asthma and other allergy induced conditions. So Neesha has decided to exclusively feed little Keshav.
