Tips on baby friendly holidays please

I am sure you all know by now that I love travelling and going to new places. The last time, we had a holiday was our babymoon to New Zealand.

So it has been more than a year since my feet touched a new place so it is definitely itching. But the big problem now is I have no clue about holidaying with a baby.

We definitely want to go spread our wings with Chhori but we are so new to this that we are a bit scared. I don’t know what kind of holiday I need to research. There are so many questions in my mind. Beach, mountains or something else? Is she too young? Should we wait? Will she be bored or annoyed if we fly? What do you do when you travel with a year-old baby?

While I was pregnant, I was thinking that we will do what suits us and the baby will adapt but looking at Chhori now I don’t want her to be uncomfortable in any way thus all these questions in my mind. She is the most important person in my life right now and I will never forgive myself if I put her through a difficult situation.

Anyone who has travelled with a small baby, please do share your tips. We definitely need a holiday but we are so clueless.

Hope to book something soon and slowly adapt to our new life as parents and travellers  🙂

Take care everyone,

How much time do you spend with your kids?

My question is to every working parent: how much time do you spend with your kids?

After coming back to work for just a week, I have begun to realise that I will be spending a lot less time with my beautiful Chhori. It makes me really sad and I can completely understand why many mums choose to stay home or work part time after a baby.

I know I am very lucky to have been able to spend a year with her at home and I did enjoy every moment of it. But now that am back at work, I only see her for around 30 minutes in the morning while I am getting ready for work and around 2 hours once I get back home before she goes to bed.

So every workday, I have around 2.5 hours with her which will include me cooking meals, cleaning afterwards and doing household chores as well. So weekends are going to be very precious now.

I guess she has started to understand that I will be leaving her at home so in the mornings once she is awake all she wants is for me to hold her. So I brush my teeth, comb my hair and get dressed holding her. I want to feed her breakfast before I leave but it is not possible every day. If I leave late then I will get home late as well. I hate making these choices and I really think parents should not have to make choices like this in life.

I have a very supportive husband and he helps around a lot but I still feel really wretched that I have to compromise so much in life. I guess I will get used to the idea after a while but for now it hurts so much to be away from my little girl.

I don’t know how to improve and utilise my time better when I am with her so any suggestion is very welcome. How do you manage your time so you can spend more quality time with your little one? Are there any tips or tricks that I can use to make both of us happy? Every suggestion and advice will be much appreciated.

Take care everyone,
