What Was In My Baby's Hospital Bag


And what we actually used

This post is so late that it is sheer embarrassment to put it online. My little nugget is nearly five months old. But I decided to publish this post anyway. There are two reasons; One, as I took photos for the post already, right before leaving for hospital. Second, I read numerous blog posts and watched many videos about what to pack in hospital bag which were years old and found them helpful. So it means that no matter how old these posts are, they are always helpful for new parents as a reference guide.

First Three Months of Motherhood: The highs & the lows



So, it has been three months that my darling baby girl arrived. So much has changed, yet it feels like she was here with me all these past years. She was not stranger to me when I first held her in my arms. It was like I knew her face ever since; the feel of her skin was familiar, her new baby smell was not new to me.

The Art of Dodging Delivery Charges




I love the traditional way of shopping – making plan, taking time out, getting ready and then browsing stores to find the perfect item. And when I find something worth buying, then going to the till, exchanging few nice comments and little pleasant conversations with person over the till, sometimes receiving and giving compliments on purchases whilst standing in a queue, all these little chit chats and socialising adds up and create a wholesome experience. And the best part, no shipping charges. A fuel or resource used to get to the mall is also part of this experience. In the end a cup of coffee closes the day.

My Postnatal Skin Condition and Lancôme Advance Génifique Eye Cream to the Rescue



Throughout my first pregnancy, I enjoyed better skin days. My skin was behaving very well. I was very conservative when it came to skincare during pregnancy. I was drinking plenty of water and was using few basic skincare products. However, once I left hospital, my skin became horribly dry and patchy. Perhaps I consumed huge volume of gas and air which tends to suck all the moisture out of skin. Furthermore I had a terrible postnatal body rash which crept up to chin area.
