Thank you, for making me the Mom I am!

This mother’s day I wanted to let my dear daughter know how thankful I am for her existence and the very essence of motherhood that I have been enjoying since her birth. I hope one day when she reads this letter she remembers that her mom loves her to the moon and beyond!

 

Baby Shower

Dear Kenisha,

I prayed for you every day for nine months, and I haven’t stopped since. I still remember bawling like a baby the first time I held you. You truly were a miracle child. It was hard to celebrate our pregnancy because we were somewhere scared that we may never see you. However, your birth restored my faith in the superpower I believed in. You made me a Mom and I will forever be grateful to you for that.

8 June 2015. Welcome baby!


From the day you were born to your first steps, each milestone has been the highlight of our lives. It’s truly an adventure I will cherish throughout my life, I smile every-time I look at photos of you which we clicked with our Canon Camera, its your dads favourite.


I will let you in on a little secret dear Kenisha, life is all about living to the fullest and creating memories. And, I want to not only create but also preserve my memories with you. Because unless these little beautiful memories are preserved today, they can’t be cherished tomorrow.

 

You will see that I have captured everything from your childhood. From the sleepless nights, to the endless diaper changes, from the often painful breastfeeding, to even cleaning up the daily mess, because these memories are priceless dear Kenisha, and you’ve made it all worth it!

All of us


I have been #Preservingmemories of your firsts and each milestone you achieve every now and then so that when you grow up we can cherish these moments together. In just 25 days you will turn 4 and am still pinching myself in disbelief. I wish I could stop time. But you know whenever I start to reminisce about your birth, I thank your Dad’s Canon Camera and Printer because of which today I can wrap myself with the nostalgia because I captured and preserved every second of those  precious memories!


From a little tiny baby you have grown beautifully into a loving, compassionate and an empathetic child. You make me so proud in so many ways! My heart swells with pride when I see you being a little independent human, filled with kindness.
I just want to tell you that you deserve the best! Don’t ever settles for the second best. And no matter what or when, your mumma is always there, to listen to you, to guide you when you need me. I love you my sweetheart, now and forever. And, I promise to keep #PreservingMemories with you.


Thank you for making me the Mom I am!

Summer skincare essentials for kids

Summers are great time to plan vacations and outings, but it is also a prime time for skin problems. Just like us, our babies may experience a lot more sweating and damage from harsh sunlight. Itchiness, dryness, sun burns, rashes, prickly heat can be troublesome during summer time. This is makes it important to follow a suitable skincare routine for babies and important to choose suitable products as well.

Our Skincare regimen this summer for my daughter:

I am sharing my favourite skincare and bath products to keep the summer rash and itching free for my little girl. This blog has been written after trying and testing these products and we highly recommend them too!

We are using the complete range from Himalaya BabyCare. It’s one of my favourite brands that I have been using since my daughter was born. Especially their wipes and diaper rash cream worked best on her sensitive skin. Their products are infused with the power of herbs and free from harmful ingredients such as SLS/SLES/ALES, phthalate, paraben, alcohol, artificial color/dye, mineral oil, and animal-derived ingredients lanolin, tallow etc.

 

Bath time favourite

For Bath time Kenisha loves a liquid wash in a loofah like me. The Himalaya Refreshing Baby Wash is perfect as it’s mild and soothing.

The wash is infused with the goodness of Watermelon that helps cool and refresh her skin, it also smells very nice,  and Neem’s anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties help protect baby’s skin.

Price: Rs. 85 for 100 ml and Rs. 150 for 200 ml

 

 

 

For those who prefer a soap bar for children, you can try the Himalaya Refreshing Baby Soap. Again, infused with the goodness of Watermelon, Vetiver, and Neem, makes this an excellent choice for summers: Vetiver helps manage itching and rashes, Watermelon helps cool baby’s skin, and Neem helps protect skin.

Price: Rs. 44 for 75 g, Rs. 55 for 100 g and Rs 64 for 125 g

 

Post Bath skincare routine

The only baby powder I have ever used for Kenisha has been from Himalaya. I tried their Himalaya Baby Prickly Heat Powder and it’s a great product to add to your summer skincare essential list of products.

Unlike similarly sold products, it is infused with the goodness Vetrier and Neem, which helps cool, relieve itching, and soothes baby’s skin It’s light and smells good too!

Price: Rs. 45 for 50 g, Rs. 75 for 100 g, and Rs. 130 for 200 g

 

 

Irrespective of the season it’s important to keep the skin hydrated even for kids. However, the choice of moisturiser and lotion for Summer must be thoughtful. The Himalaya Soothing Calamine Baby Lotion is light and absorbs easily into the skin and does not leave the skin feeling oily.

 

It has a herbal formulation and helps protect the baby’s skin from itching and rashes caused by prickly heat. Infused with the goodness of Aloe Vera, that helps accelerate the healing of baby’s skin, and Calamine helps heal wounds and soothes skin rashes.

Price: Rs. 90 for 50 ml, Rs. 165 for 100 ml, and Rs. 280 for 200 ml

 

Also Himalaya BabyCare products are clinically tested and proven to be completely safe and gentle on baby’s skin, yet I always recommend a patch test to everyone.

Have you have tried a Himalaya Babycare product? Which one has been your go to Himalaya BabyCare product? I have few more favourites from Himalaya Mom range  like their Smooth Body Butters and the Intimate care range
