MotherCare feeding bottles: A boon for working mothers

Hello beautiful ladies,

The weekend is here, tomorrow is my anniversary (sixth to be precise) and the second one with the baby around. Now at 17 months, he is learning things everyday and enjoying life to the hilt. Seeing him explore the world around him has encouraged me to do the same.

Everyone of you must remember the one habit (for me it was an annoying habit, not any more), which each mom possesses: feeding the child (sometimes forcefully). Actually, once you are a mom you don't realize that it is not force feeding, it is just that a mom cannot live with the thought that her child is hungry. You just constantly seem to worry about, comes naturally once you are a mom, I guess.

So, the first concern I had when I was about to resume my job, was the same "How will my child have milk once I am gone?" Of course, feeding bottles have been used since ages but then again how about sterilization? Maximum infections babies get is due to usage of an unsterilized teat. Moreover, I didn't want to burden my mom-in-law with the bottle sterilization. Already, keeping an infant alone for the whole day is a daunting task. Second concern was that my Pedeatrician was against the bottle, so was my mom, and few other elders, who thought that the baby will leave taking mother's milk once it is fed using a bottle. Both of these concerns were solved in one go at Mothercare.

BreastFeeding: To do or Not to do

Hello everyone!! This is my first blog post. And what better way to begin than sharing my opinion about breast feeding: the most discussed and debated topic in our journey as mothers.
Here's to the most debatable topic always for the mommy's to be or the one's who have been through this dilemma. With so many opinions and suggestions floating around it is a difficult choice for the mothers to choose one option over the other. Having breast fed successfully for a year, I am no expert at this but would like to share my opinion with all  of you.
As I write, I take a walk down the memory lane with all the fears, doubts, and stories about being able to do it properly taking form in my mind. Since the time I was pregnant, there were suggestions from every person I met regading brest feeding. Be it my mom or my mom-in-law, relatives, neighbours, friends etc. everyone was ready with their piece of advice. Some people shared their stories of how it is unhealthy in the long run for the mother as the baby takes away all the nutrition, some said that the baby develops a habit and leads to embarrassing scenes in public, some said it is beneficial for the baby but the baby do not detach themselves easily.
