This is the recent article that I wrote for a famous parenting website. With the views and likes, I felt that yes, now with experience, I have gained a niche for parenting and motherhood. I started this blog with the sole idea of giving and sharing few decor and interiors tips, which till then was my forte and liking.
Gradually, as I moved ahead, I started with lifestyle, effective reading, parenting and travel, as other categories in this blog. I realized that I was going ahead in life and with this blog, I am feeling an eternal happiness in sharing my life stories and of course, people admiring those, was an added advantage and boost up. I always felt a certain responsibility through my writing where I always tried to voice my choices and opinions in such a manner that it can be of some help to all or some section of the society.
To write about parenting was a tough choice for me, as there were many aspects and facets that I experienced but was shy or hesitant to share with the world. I was in my own cocoon where things were very rosy and fulfilling from the outside, but it was all about adjustments and commitments along with rejoice, fun and happiness. There are always certain things that one experience during the process and can’t tell that to another person.
3 years before, when I had my daughter, there was no body I can share or look up to, for advice as sadly or luckily, I was the only one in that phase. The things written in the books and websites are also by the experiences, writers had. No body could actually judge the situation I was in. I was actually missing the personal touch in the advices. I have only heard of postpartum till then, never thought that I will experience that as well.
Feeding also became an issue in my early days, when I was still in my cocoon and not ready to accept the changes in my life and people were expecting me to be a pro since day one. The things that were slowly taking away the joy of motherhood was breastfeeding for sure. All of a sudden everything was out in the open, when they started commenting on my lactating ability in their normal day to day conversation. That was a poor phase of my life but yes, I passed that. Today, seeing my daughter, no one can comment on that, neither do I prefer talking about it even now.
I follow and advice a simple funda to all, ‘to each to it own’. Have your own say and pave your own path. Today there are so many online portals where you can go for advice and seek their help in matters that bother you. Yes, motherhood is a divine thing and you are a brave woman to go through that. You should be extremely happy and thankful to god about the experience and also be grounded of the fact.
