Snap­shots from your mommy diary

Dear Team, I want to con­grat­u­late you for the hard work you put in to ev­ery is­sue of M&B. A huge round of ap­plause for do­ing such a fan­tas­tic job and mak­ing these tough nine months a cake­walk for ev­ery mum-to-be. With­out your sup­port and en­cour­age­ment it would have been more dif­fi­cult for ex­pec­tant and new moms as well. Fi­nally, with your con­stant sup­port and in­for­ma­tive ar­ti­cles, I am well in to my eighth month of preg­nancy, and I can’t wait to hold my lit­tle bun­dle of joy in my arms next month. DEBALEENA MUKHERJEE, UT­TAR PRADESH Dear Debaleena, Thank you for your kind words. Con­grat­u­la­tions on your preg­nancy and we wish you an easy and safe de­liv­ery. Kindly send in your baby’s pic­ture for our ‘An­gel Spot­ting’ sec­tion. Good luck. - Charlene

Dear Charlene, We are par­ents to Aryan, five and Hrid­haan, three. They are amaz­ing boys but like any other tod­dler their age, they are full of zeal and run around ev­ery­where. At times, it gets dif­fi­cult to man­age them in pub­lic spa­ces, es­pe­cially restau­rants, and of­ten, there aren’t too many child-friendly places to take them to. The ar­ti­cle on ‘Child-friendly restau­rants to feast at’ was an amaz­ing read and re­ally help­ful. We will surely ex­plore these places. Thank you. AADHYA AND VARUN DHINGRA, MUM­BAI Dear Aadhya and Varun, It is im­por­tant for kids to be en­gaged at restau­rants while you en­joy your meal in peace, and do lit­tle to dis­rupt the peace around, mak­ing sure other pa­trons en­joy their meals, too. Thank you for writ­ing in. - Charlene

To Team M&B, My best friend is six months preg­nant and ev­ery­one is su­per ex­cited to wel­come the baby into this world. Next month is her baby shower and all of us friends want to throw her a great party. We have been brain­storm­ing for quite a while now and haven’t been able to come up with a con­crete idea. The ar­ti­cle on ‘Baby shower ideas’ was a won­der­ful read. It show­cased all the trending themes with the bud­get and other im­por­tant de­tails. There is some clar­ity now. Thank you so much. SHALINI GAU­TAM, DELHI Dear Shalini, We hope that you throw a su­per baby shower for your friend. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all of you. Have a joy­ous cel­e­bra­tion. Thank you. - Charlene

Dear Charlene, I am a mother to a three­year-old boy and we are ex­pect­ing our sec­ond baby soon. We broke the news to our son re­cently and he seemed a lit­tle con­fused. We don’t want him to be un­wel­com­ing to his lit­tle brother or sis­ter. For­tu­nately your ar­ti­cle on the sub­ject came at the per­fect time. For that, I would like to thank you. We are try­ing to in­volve him in all the doc­tor vis­its and are en­cour­ag­ing him to talk to the baby while in the womb. These are few ways we as par­ents are try­ing to in­clude him in our jour­ney and try­ing to build the bond at an early stage. AMISHA PA­TEL, PUNE Dear Amisha, It can be quite tricky for a three year old to un­der­stand that his brother or sis­ter is on the way. But I think you guys are do­ing a won­der­ful job by in­volv­ing him in the jour­ney. All the best and have a safe preg­nancy. Thank you. - Charlene
