Few things I learned about diapering babies

My son is 2 now but he is not yet potty trained. He even gives false alarms for peeing so in his crèche he remains in diapers. It's been one and half years since I am buying/ordering diapers. And I am in love with the person who came with the idea of diapers. These little, nearly cloth type pieces have made parents' life so easy and I now hardly find anyone who doesn't use diapers for her babies. With each diaper I changed ever in my life, I learned a lesson. It's no less than mastering any skill which gets perfection after each attempt. These are few funny, ridiculous, possibly useful, and hilarious things I learned about diapering my son:
1. If you want to dress your baby in his nicest and most expensive outfit, never forget to make them wear diapers. The probability of blow-out is more in the case of new outfit.
2. Be careful if you baby is relating to cartoon characters printed over diapers. If you change the brand you may have to face a denial of wearing them from your baby
3. Don't make your baby wear his/her diaper until the last moment if you are going for a party. Babies can sense than mumma is now doing makeup and the same moment they make you change them.
4. If your toddler is standing very still and is quiet, he/she is probably pooping.
5. If your toddler is hiding in a corner, he/she is probably pooping with thinking something.
6. If your baby has a weird smile or making a strange face, they are for sure pooping.
7. If you are at your relative's place and you found people sniffing the air subtly, you should probably check your baby’s diaper.
8. Always ask before you put a poo-diaper in the garbage at someone else’s house.
9. Never go for a car ride or road trip without an extra pair of clothes for yourself. For baby you anyway carry them but you can't enjoy the trip in wet/soiled cloths.
10. When you start per-ordering diapers, you should know that your mind has accepted that they are simply a boon and you can’t miss ordering them.
11. Most of the times babies poo in fresh diapers.
12. When you are changing your newborn, you feel poo in a diaper is better. But when you start changing your toddler, you feel poo in any diaper is yuck, no matter how expensive the diaper is.
13. Be cautious when changing your baby boy. It goes far.
14. Someday you may face a diaper situation when you feel gross and you wouldn't even know where to begin cleaning. But take a deep breath and concentrate on the smallest area. You will eventually get it all clean.
15. If your toddler has understood potty-training quickly, it’s not because you are awesome at it, you are really lucky.
I am still waiting for the time when I would stop ordering extra stock of diapers. But I think I'll miss them. Diapers are really best friends for mothers. Are not they?

पत्नियों के लिए भी एक व्रत का प्रस्ताव..

अरे याद है ना.. हर साल की तरह वो प्यार का त्यौहार फिर से आ गया.. अच्छा तो आप कंफ्यूज हो गई कि ये वैलेंटाइन डे तो कब का जा चुका अब किस प्यार के त्यौहार कि बात करने लगी मैं.. बताती हूँ बताती हूँ.. अपनी हिन्दू सभ्यता में भी एक प्यार का त्यौहार होता है "करवा चौथ.."अहा, क्या उत्सव है प्रेम का. पहले प्रेम मिश्रित सेवा फिर सेवा के बदले प्रेम मिश्रित उपहार. वाह..

बाजार पट गए है डिज़ाइनर चमकदार छलनी से लेकर गोटे लगी थालियों से और होने भी चाहिए. आखिर इस कदर महान संस्कृति जिसमें पति को देवता मान कर, उनके लिए दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर पत्नियां व्रत करती हैं, उनकी उम्र बढ़ाने जैसा ईश्वरीय कार्य करती हैं, उस दैवीय व्रत का इतना उत्सव तो होना ही चाहिए. और याद रहे चरणस्पर्श करना एकदम जरूरी है व्रत के नियमो के हिसाब से नहीं तो पति की उम्र से छेड़ छाड़ हो सकती है. समझ नहीं आता इतना ज्ञान आया कहा से हमारे पूर्वजो में जिससे ये पता चला कि अगर पत्नी दिन भर भूखे प्यासे रहकर चाँद की पूजा करे तो पति की उम्र साल दर साल बढ़ती जाती है? वैसे धन्य है भारतीय महिलाये. पति चाहे शराबी, जुवारी कबाबी कैसा भी हो, पतियों…

#MoreIndianThanYouThink Being an Indian Mother is Success for me

This world is a beautiful place. It’s really amazing how different countries with their unique cultures exist in harmony here. I know, there are some exceptions; however, I think that is almost negligible when I see the culmination of values and beliefs in our universe. Everyone is exclusive and different, yet all of us make this planet livable. As a mature person who got the chance to understand the ethos of a few other continents, I can proudly say that our country holds a different space in this world, a culture that is known for its strong family system and core values. Feeling proud about our mother land is no unique. But being an Indian, I have gained so much at my professional front.


Yes, I am a working mother of a 3-year-old boy. I have close to 9 years of experience in software industry and I am looking forward to work for more and more years. Being a mother and being a professional person bring two different kinds of challenges in life. And when you work for a demanding clien…

#MothersDay - A blog by Divya, ANAYA's Mother

A mother becomes a mother the day she gets to know about the little embryo inside her womb.
It all started one fine day when I did my pregnancy test and it resulted positive. Life changed from the very moment. I was excited but a bit nervous too. I and my husband were working in two different cities that time. So the excited supermom in me felt extra responsible to take care of the baby. I started spending my days managing home, office, long travel, shopping, exercise, reading and any and every thing which could be added to the list. My baby kept me motivated and never let me feel alone. At times when I felt low she kicked me as if she was saying ‘Don’t worry mom. You rock! :) However, by end of sixth month I felt exhausted and I decided to move to my mother’s place for delivery and give some time to my husband to settle down with his work life.



After seven hectic years of work life I was enjoying a peaceful time. Days were spent in all sorts of preparations to welcome the child. But…
