Does my baby need all the toys in the world??

play-fun-blocks-block-591652.jpeg
It’s the month of November and we are going to complete 17 months soon in shaa Allah! Earlier Shopping was a difficult task as we will have to go to a shop research about the product and then analyse if we need them and then buy it but now the scenario is completely different. Sitting in front of a gadget shopping is just a click away ! With the social media mode ON we get lot of choices and we tend to forget if we have that particular product in our home and buy them again?? So this post is about people who z think our babies need to be given the best and buy stuffs without understanding if the child is interested in that particular product or not. In this era, parents feel that they shouldn’t compare and fall in the trap. If a particular mom sees a product even without analysing they get it for their kid.
I am just saying before buying stuffs for the kids please do think if it’s really needed? Not every single product in the market is necessary for our baby.
Before thinking about a product answer these simple questions
1. Is it just a toy? Does it have any value?
2. Is it age appropriate?
3.Is it for me or my child?
4. Is it relating to my child’s interest?
5. Do I have any stuff similar to this kind at home?
6. Will my child really understand the importance of money?
If the answer is satisfying then go for it else we will skip it.
For e.g. One of my friends got a magnatile for her kid from xyz vendor and she got the same product from the another vendor too. So here the product is replica. Is it really necessary for the kiddo?? I don’t think so it’s important. Let’s encourage mompreuners but within our limits too as we need loads of money for the future ventures.
With the Thanks giving offers going on I was tempted to get the indoor slide for my daughter. I even convinced my husband to make the payment as he strongly believes that I won’t spend money in useless stuff but before hitting the Pay NOW button I stopped and asked Is it a luxury one?? Yes it’s a Luxury stuff for sure. If we own the Slide at home then for sure going to park will be a question mark in the future! If we don’t go out how will she make friends? How will she  socialize? So made up our mind to not get it. If a ball pit, slide, swing, etc is accessible at home for them then when and how will they explore nature?
Being a mommy of a One year Old I really feel it’s not necessary to spend in toys. It’s with my experience. We got her rattles and rattles that’s it as that’s the main thing she would like in that age. Anything with music is what they like in that age. I invested in few books too as I  was brought up in that way.
Even too much of books is a kind of pressure i would say. Let kids be taken to the library and let them use the public library for usage of books.
Please don’t fall for the peer mommy pressure and get the stuff for your kid. Analyse and do a research if your kid will be happy with the particular product or learn with it.
A one year old will like to play with empty boxes, bottles, shoes, broom and dustpan than the costly stuffs you get for your kid. When they like to use them allow them so that they will be happy. If you feel it’s wrong use positive statements and chance the habit.
Experience and time is important for the kid than the money you spend on the product. More than indoors take them outdoors and let them enjoy the nature in their own way. Let them get dirty as it’s good. The West is researching and now says Attachment parenting is best, cosleeping is best, carrying the baby is best which our forefathers said years ago. So instead of following the Western culture let’s chin up with pride our own old traditional ways to  make the kids enjoy the nature and get them maximum joy with just minimal toys.
If you feel if I am right share the message happily!! Happy thanksgiving 🙂

REVIEW-TIAN DI- FRASSAI Perfumes

frassai-eau-de-parfum-roller-balls-fb-sq

 

Being a mommy of a 1 year old I forgot to think about “ME” like any other moms in the world. Each and everything I look for is “a baby stuff”. Looking at the banner FRASSAI I felt it must be something related to baby and then understood it’s not for BABYA but for BabyA’s mommy. The way they have explained their product, made me to contact them and try their sample. Frassai has collections for both men and women and the products are being launched in the month of November and I was sent a sample to review this particular scent TIAN DI. They do have 3 flavours and I chose TIAN DI.

I chose TIAN DI as I wanted something from the woody stuff. It has peach elixir, woods and rich green flowers in it and smells heavenly which babyA also likes it. She allows me to wear it as I am so specific that no scent should disturb my daughter.

In Bottle: A ritual for the senses, embodied in earthy incense, rich green flowers, peach elixir, and calming woods.

FRASSAI-TianDi-EDP

What do they claim:

They associate each and every product of their’s with a French fairy tale and this Tian Di is associated with a fairy tale back in 1920’s. It’s a blonde between China and France and it would give you a feel of Royal highness when Tian Di is been applied. With the richness of the green flowers and an elixir of the peach tree blended with the sandalwoods and ginger it would make you feel fresh by opening your mind, purify the body and awaken the Royal Spirit within you.

 

Packaging:

Each of the fragrances is captured in sleek Italian glass and crowned with a modern wooden cap.

It comes in two ways.

  1. Individual bottles 50ml which would cost around 130$.
  2. Rollerballs 10ml which would cost around 35$.

Availability: Beginning November 2017, the collection will be available at the new store Perfumariē in Soho, NY and online store AHAlife.com

My Experience:

I have been using this for almost 13 days now and I loved the smell and I was able to use it as my lovable daughter didn’t face any strong smell and she was able to accept the scent too. I loved the packaging it had a velvette pouch. The pouch is so beautiful and it adds more attraction to the luxury collection. I did have a fresh feel. It lasted for some 5 hours approximately.

 

Will I Purchase this and will I recommend this?

Yes, I would recommend this TIAN DI Royal Perfume who haven’t tried it yet. This is a wonderful product for men as well as women and it lasts for 5 hours approximately which is a positive note.

 

My Ratings: 4.0/5.

Some Crazy Reasons for the love of Babywearing

Baby Alizeh’s role in the Environment !!
Anyone who  knows me in person will know that I am an advocate of babywearing and cloth diapering. If you are babywearing we can do the household tasks and few tasks without worrying about it as your hands would be free. It’s also said by wearing your baby he/she is close to you so the bonding develops more and more. Here I am coming up with few crazy reasons of babywearing

1. I can eat biryani in a wedding feast
You know muslim Biryani’s are always tasty and that too wedding feast yummy. With a baby in a carrier  was and still I am able to relish each and everything with joy without the fear of disturbing her and I had developed the art of eating without spilling over  her.

2. So I can go shopping carefree
I am a person who hates shopping and now being a mom I have to shop where I am left with no choice. So when I go for shopping babyA will be on me and I would be able to analyse and check racks and racks and find the stuff on the list.

3. So I can speak with babyA
I love to speak a lot with babyA and we speak about birds, trees, prices of each and every stuff if we are in the shop, if we are out we speak about the cars, clouds, rain, and what not and no one can mistake me that I’m speaking alone

4. I can use escalator
I have a fear that I might  drop babyA down while using the escalator. If I babywear her I have a courage to use the escalator and enjoy the happy moments with her.
These were the few crazy reasons I have/had during babywearing. Please do share yours with me.
