Dear Char­lene, I had two mis­car­riages and have never been able to get over the loss, es­pe­cially the sec­ond one. The last few years have been ex­tremely try­ing and no amount of ad­vice or sug­ges­tions re­ally helped me cope. I once read a rain­bow baby story on­line, and it kind of man­aged to put me in the pos­i­tive frame of mind. Can you please share a few rain­bow baby sto­ries? HARLEEN KAUR, LUD­HI­ANA Dear Harleen, We are sorry for your loss. We un­der­stand that there is no greater loss than the loss of a child there are some steps that can be taken to en­sure a pos­i­tive turn around. Do go through the ex­pert tips to cope with a mis­car­riage in our June is­sue. We will also bring you some rain­bow baby sto­ries soon. Keep read­ing this space. - Char­lene Dear Team, Go­ing back to school af­ter a long hol­i­day is never easy for a child. Of course, the chance to meet school friends and share sto­ries about sum­mer va­ca­tions act as the ul­ti­mate cat­a­lyst to get them look for­ward to school, but kids are al­ways more ex­cited about us­ing their new lunch boxes and their new school bags. My boy couldn’t have been hap­pier to re­turn to school with his new Avengers School Kit. Thanks for putting to­gether the back-to-school check­list. SANDHYA GUPTA, KOTA Dear Sandhya, We are glad that we could bring that smile to your son’s face. - Char­lene Dear Team, I have never been able to get enough sleep af­ter the birth of my baby girl. She re­fuses to sleep un­til I carry and walk around with her. To add to that, she wakes up at ir­reg­u­lar tim­ings and does not even sleep for two hours at a stretch. I al­ways have to be at her beck and call. This has been ex­tremely ex­haust­ing for me. I am on the 28-day plan you shared to get my baby’s sleep rou­tine on track and would like to thank you for the same JY­OTI AGAR­WAL, BEN­GALURU Dear Jy­oti, We can guar­an­tee that with the sim­ple four-week plan your early morn­ing wake-ups will be a thing of the past. Just be pa­tient and con­sis­tent. - Char­lene Dear Ed­i­tor, I just found out about my preg­nancy last month and I could not be more ex­cited about baby names, ma­ter­nity wardrobe, ma­ter­nity pho­to­shoot, my In­sta­gram feed and more. The lat­est preg­nancy trends in your last is­sue, look more ex­hil­a­rat­ing than ever. ANYA RAMPAL, DELHI Dear Anya, Mil­len­nial moms-to-be don’t hide the bump, they liven it up. So go ahead and try out ev­ery preg­nancy trend you can. - Char­lene Dear Ed­i­tor, My pe­ri­ods have been ir­reg­u­lar for the past few months and I hap­pily chose to ig­nore it. Lit­tle did I know that ir­reg­u­lar men­strual cy­cle could be the sign of some­thing more sin­is­ter un­til I came across the ar­ti­cle in your mag­a­zine. I con­sulted my doc­tor only to find out that I am suf­fer­ing from PCOS. You have been a life-saver. PRATIMA KUNDU, DURGAPUR Dear Pratima, It can be hard to know whether your pe­ri­ods are just weird one month or if you’re ex­pe­ri­enc­ing some­thing that should be flagged for your doc­tor. But even with the slight­est ab­nor­mal­ity, al­ways make it a point to con­sult an ex­pert. - Char­lene
