Some kids love to play with water and enjoy their bath time no matter what. Using a no-tears baby bath or shampoo is the most important aspect of encouraging your baby to keep this good practice. Lest the burning sensation caused due to an inappropriate soap or bathing wash will make the baby reluctant towards a relaxing bath.

As far as I am concerned, I had been using the Himalaya Nourishing Soap for a long time for my little one. But when I planned to travel to my mom’s place I wanted something that was easy to carry without any hassle Continue Reading

Come winters and I am always worried about dryness that may set into my little one’s skin. And come summers I have nightmares about the rashes that may develop on his skin due to heat and sweat. Kids’ skin is always in need of special nourishment across the year.

When I first saw the news about the assault on a 10 month old baby at a daycare in Navi Mumbai, my first reaction was that probably I was right in deciding to give-up my job to take care of my kids.

But that was a choice that I made; I am one individual, my priorities and prerogatives in life could be / are different from other individuals.
