The moment a child is born, a mother is also born. My First time mom experience.
Becoming a mother is the most rewarding blessing in the world and it becomes more exciting and beautiful when it is for the first time. As people say ‘only a sufferer knows the feeling’ similarly, only a mother will know the depth of love, care, pain, fear, headache and joy of being a mother. From the time you get those dark pink lines on the pregnancy test you start imagining your life with the tiny blessing in your tummy. Talking to your unborn baby in the alone time, getting the first ultrasound, feeling that first kick in the tummy and all other to be mother things are so much exciting.
You feel a mixed spectrum of emotions. You are excited, happy, scared, crying all at the same time. You first care for the baby and then for yourself. Quitting your favorite sport or activity if it’s not safe for the child is just one of the sacrifices. In fact every part of your day is according to your new one. Remember the time when you started reading books about parenting or watching your tummy grow in the mirror almost everyday.
And finally when the child is born, you stand at the top of the world making resolutions to protect your child from every evil. Watching the cute little steps, listening to lots of baby gibberish, that adorable pout and gorgeous little smile fills your heart with joy. And the fun part about being a mother is that it turns you into a superwoman.
For the First time mom Parenting is a tiring, demanding and a challenging job. Sleepless nights and tiring days are also a part of motherhood. But they’re worth it.
My #FirstTimeMom experience
Today, I will share my own experience of being a mother for the first time. The day my daughter was born was the new beginning of my life. A new life was born out of me, the baby which was a part of my body for 9 months, was now a new human. When I held her for the first time, I felt a whole marathon of tingling vibes all over my body. The things I felt at that time cannot be explained in words. Tears rolled down my eyes looking at the tiny pink, round chubby cheeked, gurgling wonder. She was so calm, her skin so soft, smooth and as beautiful as an angel. I noticed every single movement she made from blinking eyes to throwing hands and legs as if she wanted to tell me how happy she was with me. I named her Angel as she was the one for me.
Motherhood gave me so many life lessons. Everyday I learnt so many new things about her. Every single chore was a memory in itself. Singing to her while changing diapers, telling her stories while giving a bath or making my own lullaby. All of them are precious memories. As I was a working mother it was a little bit difficult and tiring to cope up with the work and the responsibilities of the baby at the same time. I used to wake up a number of times at night to check on her if she’s sleeping soundly. And not to forget the 3AM automatic alarm, when she would wake up and start crying. Despite all the difficulties, being a mother is a blessing. The relief and happiness you receive while watching them play, laugh, fall and stand is worth everything in the world. But being First time mom is neither easy as you have been loaded with myths and advices and how mother differentiate between right and wrong for her kids.
How I analyse that the baby products should be natural :
On 7 th day after my daughter was born, we had naming ceremony at home. As usual I knew it that many people will come and touch the baby, so I was ready with hand sanitizer and wipes. Every time some one would come and touch he pinky cheeks, I wiped using wipes. After that some one came and gave her silver anklet and in minutes she developed rashes on her body. I thought this might be reason of infection. Since I was told to use wipes only, I never realized that it had alcohol. This touch of alcohol gave her burning sensation on rashes and she cried badly. Not only my daughter but I too cried badly with such mistakes I did. I immediately went to doctor and she explained me about how water based wipes are better than alcohol based. How child skin is so sensitive, she said you cant just use because it suited to other kids. My #firstwaterwipes experience was so good that I am still with same wipes.
Many times, doubts crossed my mind if I’m doing the right thing, the right way for my child. Choosing the best baby products is again a tough task. The most important of them were wipes that are used for almost every activity. My doctor suggested me to use mother sparsh. Mother sparsh wet wipes helped me a lot in cherishing my daughter’s delicate skin. I couldn’t blindly believe on every baby product so I did a lot of research. I read reviews online and asked some friends about it. I also tried some other reputed water wipes but they proved useless as they were very soapy and over perfumed. But mother sparsh water wipes was a great choice for my daughter.
How Mother sparsh is best for child’s skin.
Mother sparsh water wipes are perfect for every kind of infant skin- newborn, baby, toddler or a child as they are super comfy and are made up of 98% water. They are specially made for the sensitive and super soft skin of babies. These wipes are hypoallergic and doesn’t irritate the baby’s sensitive skin. They are designed to wipe away germs and dirt and moisturizes the skin without causing any infection, allergy or uneasiness. Unlike many other wipes mother sparsh contains ayurvedic segments and herbal active ingredients. They are clinically proven to be free of any kind of chemicals. Most of the wipes are made of polyster which irritates the skin but the fabric used in mother sparsh water wipes is purely plant based and gives a velvety touch and makes it biodegradable which is safe for the mother earth also.
They are enriched with water, aloe vera and Vitamin E. Most importantly they are free of parabens, alcohol and pH balanced. Also, the size of the fabric is comparatively bigger than other brands and the pack is resealable. I recommend every mother to use these wipes as these wipes are ultra soft on baby’s ultra sensitive skin. These wipes are super handy and can be used anywhere anytime to fresh and clean the child. Also, if you’re feeling a little lazy to remove your makeup or to wash your face. These wipes will come to your rescue.
You can now save your time from washroom visits every time your child does his or deed by using these wipes and spend a little for your rest or to play with the child. Also, if you want to share your own experience, do let us know in the comments section below.
