Bookmark and Share

I did read this somewhere on the news sites, that Americans now have access to high speed broadband internet delivered by HughesNet. The things people do on the internet, mails, chats, networking, business networking, it’s so important for everyone these days. Mothers surf the net every now and then to gather information or learn about milestones, their babies would be going through weekly and monthly. Fathers do it for their business purpose whether at home or work. The youngsters do it for research or gaming. The world today cannot be imagined without internet technology!

For the best deal, hughes satellite internet tops the list for now. They're offering a small monthly fee of $9.99 and reasonable for high speed internet which can’t be compared to the other providers. Satellite technology in comparison to dial-up is powerful and doesn't allow any kind of disturbance like phone cuts, signal loss making communication, surfing, shopping and conducting business much easier on the web

If you wish not to use the standard installation yourself though you will be provided with all equipment needed to mount and install your HughesNet system, professional and certified installers are also available to ensure successful installation.

Reasons why your baby might bite while breast feeding

Bookmark and Share


Most new mothers don't understand why their infants suddenly start the biting habit while breast feeding, but not only at breast feeding, sometimes infants try to put everything they get hold off into their mouths. I myself didn't know why when i was a first time mom but was experienced enough to know all about it for the second kid of mine.

This comes with the possibility of teething which is the most common reason and those once contended babies no more remain the same, turning cranky and restless sometimes, 24 into 7. They do it to get the soothing sensation on their gum's and not out of vengeance, so don't worry it would stop soon. You got to find solutions to help him ease the irritation and pain. Moreover, your constant comfort would provide him more relief.

Very rarely this turns out a habit they get out of anxiety so never use it to give into his demands or let others do it to them.

Please come back soon for my teething and biting solutions :-)

Halloween safety tips, and activities for kids

Bookmark and Share


Halloween being just around the corner, it is an anticipated holiday awaited by everyone, yearly. It’s meant to enjoy with lots of spooky surprises and frightful fun! The excitement could often transpose a little carelessness to parents, furthermore, children are prone to accidents and injures especially after dark on this holiday. Here are some precautions and safety tips parents should practice to avoid tragedies to your celebrations and make this traditional holiday a memorable one. Happy and spooky Halloween folks.. just consider exercising, and advising your kids on these tips and all will go smoothly :-)

Costume
The costume the child is wearing should be brightly colored and fitting comfortably, not to long or they might trip over. A best preference would be of flame retardant material. They costume knives and swords should be flexible (not rigid or sharp). A good idea would be to carry a flashlight when trick or treating for security. Carry a watch to check on return time, and a mobile to contact in case a problem arises. Kids should try on their costumes beforehand and practice walking around the house. While wearing a mask, ensure the child's vision is not hidden.

Trick-or-Treating safety
Parents or someone older and responsible should always accompany younger children, or walk around in groups. Houses should be well lit so that kids know they are welcome for candy, and kids should enter only houses. Avoid shortcuts and stay by the sides of well lit streets. Kids should be reminded to look left, right, and again left before trying o cross the street. Carry a watch, and a mobile to contact in case a hindrance arises. Make sure your kids memorize your home number and address or slip in a paper with the details into they pockets.

Candy
Candy collected should be inspected by parents before consumed by the kids. They should throw away unwrapped candy, as who knows it could be tampered with. Let your kids help themselves to a fulfilling snack before they take off to the streets as this will prevent them from snacking outside. Goodies, fruits etc should be thoroughly checked and looking exceptional to the eyes before consuming!

General safety hazard tips.
Remove any obstacles out of the yard, doorways and landings, including flower pots, hoses, pets (should be kept indoor) etc.. Use battery powered lights and candles which are preferable to real flame. If candles are used, make sure the cloth decorations are at a distance from the flames. The pumpkins and other lit decors should be kept at a distance from where trick-or-treaters will tread. Kids should be allowed to use sharp knives to carve pumpkins. Though there are safer kids with tiny saw available, they could cause cuts, so the best is to let them clean and draw the face while parents themselves can cut it. Grown ups shouldn't consume alcohol at parties and drive, or a designated driver is advisable, just in case alcohol is served.

Moms, pamper your little one to a luxury bath robe

Bookmark and Share


Kids often don't like bathing and oh yes, well actually they do love bathing soap getting into their eyes is what they don't delight in. But you can always have fun baths and allow your family a happy bath time together. They so much deserve a towel wrap, don't they? Why not use a luxury a bath wrap once they are out of the shower or bath tub, wiped and ready to snuggle in. Its so much fun and practical too! This helps to keep them warm and they will also regard a bath as an enjoyable activity.

Moms would love wetting themselves while playing blowing bubbles in the bath tub, so take this opportunity to treat your-self to a terry bath robe. It is of gold standard, thick and warm and 100% cotton of course! I believe this would also prove as an excellent gift for your teenage daughter or from a daughter to her mother! They'll adore the unusual gift for sure.

As a playful mother, you could also try the waffle bath robe which is lighter in weight. Lighter enough, for you to carry your darling kids out of the bathroom in case they plan on another bath.

Let your toddlers and older kids help with minor household chores

Bookmark and Share


Do you or don't you mind your children helping in the tiny chores at home? i guess most moms with kids aged 3 and above would love help from their kids so as to lessen workload or while engaged with other major chores, yet wont allow their kids to touch a thing for fear of mishaps. All you have to do is interact with them yourself close by or from a distance while they are busy doing the chores to ensure safety(emphasizing on toddlers)

Depending on age, stability, understanding and responsibility your kids would love to interact with you, and the work should sometimes come as an excuse, if always not a necessity. Toddlers who watch their parents peeling, cutting, washing etc etc.. would be eager to splash water around but thinking they're helping you! My daughter once helped me wash clothes and soon there were bubbles and soapy water everywhere, yet she was so happy that she helped her mom. Now kids of this age love being copy-cats of their mothers, so let them do it, provided they don't get in touch with chemicals or other dangerous articles.

Kids older, of course would love doing the vacuuming, washing the dishes or severing the table and a great way of showing them you value their contribution, is to let them do it and also reward them with love and extra play time. Even if they didn't ask to do it, you can always ask for their help. They are not perfect like parents but one can always re-do or add a finishing touch to the tidiness. As a parent you are teaching them several valuable lessons in life which would eventually be of great use to them in their future life and it definitely helps to enhance/boost their self-esteem.

Some moms loved being helped but only to get a nagging refusal from their kids. You cant force kids but can surely get them to enjoy their task!? Please come back to read, ways getting your kids to do household chores, in a few posts from now :-)

Follow these tips and keep your children safe from Diwali mishaps

Bookmark and Share


Diwali, the festival of lights is one day ahead of us and the whole of India will be celebrating by bursting crackers, and feasting, apart from the other traditional activities. Bursting crackers will be always be the most awaited part of Diwali for kids and even grown ups, which can be a little dangerous too.. if you look up the news or read the newspapers the day following Diwali festival, there are always mishaps that have happened due to not being careful on Diwali. So as parents, we have the responsibly to ensure our kids are playing safe no matter how well they can care for themselves. Fire should never be trusted, so please follow these simple tips and have a blast.. coz.. precaution is better than cure :-)

Wishing every parent a wonderful and joyous Diwali with their families and kids...

1. First and foremost, burn crackers and light fireworks in an open space, and a great distance away from any building wall. Make sure there are no combustible and inflammatory articles lying around.

2. Keep a bucket of water or a thick blanket and a first aid kit in hand. It might not seem essential at that point of time, in excitement, but its better than being sorry.

3. Strictly avoid wearing and allowing yours kids to wear nylon or synthetic clothes. Its ok to wear traditional clothes like ghagra choli, saris etc during the puja activities.. but while burning crackers, make sure they change into cotton clothes.

4. Keep your lapped kids in arms and a distance from the crackers. Avoid them from exposure to too much loud noises as they are likely to not enjoy the noises as it is, even their ears are too delicate to withstand the noise pollution. While burning sparklers with them, hold it yourself first, and then let them just hold your hand or the tip/bottom of the sparklers.

5. Supervise your kids while bursting crackers and playing with fireworks, and never leave them alone unless you have other important work to do. In this case, leave them under supervision of a much older responsible child.

6. Jewelery should be strictly avoided apart from synthetic clothes, as we all know metal is good conductor of heat and could cause some unnecessary mishap.

Enjoy the lightened spirit of Diwali with your kids but do keep in mind these useful tips.. Happy Diwali one and all :-)

Gift ideas for new moms and newborn babies

Bookmark and Share


I remember, when i was a new mom having just given birth to my first born i was quite shocked and excited both at the same time. I couldn't resist gazing into my sons face even while he slept waiting for him to cry so that i could take him in my arms and cuddle him to sleep again. My family and visitors were sensitive to my emotions, they understood what a new mom goes through post delivery, and they often made me feel special by bringing me fresh beautiful flowers. This really helped to divert and relax my stressed out mind and worked out body.

Am sure most of you might have been confused when gifting someone, especially when a new mother is concerned, but most of you need to gift a new mom and newborn sometime in your life, don't you? The things which new mothers would appreciate from her dear ones are the most essential babies and kid’s items. They wouldn't trade anything for their little sweetheart's first gifts, ask me! So, if you are seriously gifting a new mother, select something material for the newborn baby rather then gifting money in an envelope as it doesn't look decent and no matter what the amount, and no matter how many others have already gifted toys to the baby, the mother would still appreciate toys as a wonderful gift for her newborn doll.

I regret not having a pushchair for my son because it would have been so convenient for both of us, so i recommend buying a top model which will last until the baby's is of, at least 3 to 4 years old. Any, one person can buy this special item, for it's the only single item needed for the baby and the close members of the mother's family should plan and work this out.

One more activity instead of a gift would really be so appreciated by the mother, and it would be a great idea to capture wonderful moments of bonding between the mother and her newborn. digital cameras are so cheap and yet you can get quality pictures out of them. These pictures can be stored in secure photo storage on the web and is also the easiest way to exhibit the pictures to your family and relatives through a link! Technology is amazing.. thanks to innovations in digital camera technology

The survival of a new born which falls through a train toilet onto the tracks

Bookmark and Share

Do miracles really happen or is it just co-incidence? I feel Unknown to us, miracles always happen in our daily lives. But sometimes, the lucky are blessed to experience it and somewhere deep in their hearts they feel of great importance that something so rare has happened to them, making it the talk of the town, and conferred a lifetime memory too. Read this true incident that occurred recently in India and let me know your views..

I had been watching this headlines about the birth of a baby on train which people deem as a miracle. This family, a housewife pregnant with her second child, her spouse and their first born were traveling by train when the women suddenly walked of to the lavatory. She probably wanted to relieve herself or rather the sharp pains in her abdomen when suddenly the baby delivered and slipped of into the lavatory bowl and through the flap onto the tracks under the speeding train. The mother jumped off the train to save the baby and injured herself by a fall, she pulled herself up and managed to move towards where the baby had tumbled. Her spouse and others who saw her jump pulled the emergency chain and got off in search of the newly birthed mother when they saw her sitting beside the tracks with the baby in her arms! Admitted to hospital both mother and child were safe and recovering..

I sometimes wonder why people see things without reason.. but scientifically miracles are proven too so i better not let my brains fuse and ask what you think about the incident? :-)

What is blog advertising and why is it important for websites

Bookmark and Share

The internet is growing with millions and millions of websites making their way into the search engines so easily, and it isn't so tough to understand how.. Along with being a parent, i am also a blogger who earns easily through my own blog so i can tell the importance of blog advertising. This pregnancy and parenting blog of mine has touched the rank i was wishing for, and here is how it is all done..

People are unhesitatingly investing their hard earned money to build and promote their business sites because they are totally confident on the present world of growing internet technology when blog advertising has beaten out all other ways of advertising.

Let me explain what is blog advertising before i proceed to why is is important to advertise on blogs. Blog advertising is generally a way of hiring bloggers to write genuine and honest opinions and in return they are paid for their work. It is important to advertise on blogs because Bloggers are linked to a network of another blogs, communities, forums and search engines which will very obviously and definitely be very beneficial to the website owners because then they sites will attract plenty of readers who will visit their site through a link provided to the blogger to incorporate in his post or review. The more the owner had advertised his website on blogs, the more chances he will be indexed in the google search engines faster and higher depending on the quality of blogs he has advertised on. It would also be sensible to submit your site to the Yahoo directory to ensure that people searching for relevant keywords on the yahoo search engine will land on your site.

Working women should take it easy, arrange to take work home or work lesser hours. Stay at home moms and others are always luckier to find time for rest, but not always, so try to cut out or lessen your social commitments and get some help for some of the house work and to look after the kids while you find time for a sound sleep.

Including some regular light exercises into your daily routine during pregnancy can decrease some common discomforts such as backaches and fatigue. A brisk walk, breathing deeply or stretching your legs gently could be a good initiative.

Its advisable not to pressurize your pregnancy for unnecessary commitments or in stressful situations, but remain happy by occupying yourself in less strenuous activity.
