Little Arham and I resumed office this Thursday. It’s a place that he’s spent most of his time at while he was in my tummy.. no wonder he was so calm in the midst of discussions, story narrations, meetings. Little entrepreneur in the making 😋 completely at home in office! Oh btw, mommies, don’t rush to get back to work after the baby, I’m taking it real slow, with just a few hours at the moment at the time of mine and Arham’s convenience. Besides I have created my office extremely comfortable for us. Incidentally, I also feel the most at home in office! #workmode ______________________ #likemotherlikeson #motherson #son #baby #babyboy #boy #office #work #workoholic
On breastfeeding she said,”. Breastfeeding is a beautiful thing between a mother and a child and it’s a bond that is impossible to break. Those 20 minutes with the baby is bliss. So I like that our time to be secluded and with no one around. Yes, there are times when we have to step out of the house with the baby. Public breastfeeding should be allowed. If you are allowed to smoke, drink, abuse in public, why not breastfeeding? It’s the most beautiful and natural thing to do. All of us have done it at some point of time. Why shy away from it? A lot of importance is given to breastfeeding. A lot of new mothers ask me what to do if they aren’t able to breastfeed their babies exclusively. I first feel that one needn’t stress about it. The first six months one should exclusively breastfeed the baby as it’s important. But if you aren’t able to due to whatever reason, then top milk is fine at times.
On taking out some me-time, she expressed her views: she feels that after the baby is born people are so excited to spend time with the baby that they forget about their mother. Mothers also tend to forget themselves. The baby will be healthy only when his mother is happy. Yes, they can sense their mother’s mood so give yourself some time and break.
About the fitness of new mothers, she said ,” A lot of women don’t talk about fitness nowadays as they are talking about weight loss. That’s my problem. I don’t think just losing weight will help. If you are fit, weight loss will follow. The transformation that your body goes through after delivery, is very crucial to look after the body. Also she tells that breastfeeding milk is formed in fat cells and you can lose up to 500 calories by just sitting and breastfeeding. So she advises all the mothers to breastfeed and maintain a balanced diet.
On spending time with your husband she advises mothers to set up a routine and spend at least one hour daily with their partners. It can be after the office or before bed as well but it is important to maintain that connection.
In the end, she advises all mothers to be the way they are and do what they want to do. Just do what is right for your baby and move ahead.
