And then when I conceived the second time, just within a year of having my first, he was more than happy. Happy and sure, it’s going to be a boy this time. Boy, because we already have a girl. Boy, because a family Pandit had predicted he will have two children, and the second one would be a boy. Boy, because that is what everyone wanted – his parents, my parents, him, and, possibly, me” – Sneha’s account of having a second girl
Started to judge me? How can a mother, more so a woman think like this? That makes me a terrible person, and I know that. I know I should not be feeling this. I am an educated woman, one who quit her career for taking care of the baby, my twinkle. Her gleaming eyes and charming smiles were big enough reasons for me not to go to work and stay at home, feeding and changing diapers. I happily chose that. And my husband supported throughout, even if that meant extra hours at work to compensate for the lost income. Never did he once complain. He understood I was doing this for our daughter, and he was pretty helpful. Seems perfect, right? And then when I conceived the second....

6 months of paid maternity leave! Sounds yay, eh? Actually, it doesn’t. And I have good reasons to say so. Some of us women might have been elated at the announcement, but not me. Yes, I am not very happy with the new 6 months paid maternity leave law that has come to force a few weeks ago. Sounds totally gross? Well, I do have good reasons. I started off my corporate journey shortly after completing my education, slowly building my skills up and taking on the levels one by one. Every time I appeared for interviews, I was asked when I was getting married. Why, companies are not sure if a woman will continue working after getting married and no one wished to waste their resources on training someone who’d eventually quit the job to balance her personal life. After I was married, I was marred with yet another personal question -‘When do I plan to start a family?” It seemed everyone- from my current boss to the hopeful future one, from the HR department to my competitive co-workers- were more interested than me – as to when I am having a baby.

Everyone told you that having a baby is a life changing event. And you thought no different too. So you prepared your mind in advance for the hectic days, sleepless nights, unforgiving colic tantrums and general craziness well before the baby came out. However, did someone tell you that your equation with your husband would likely change after a baby? Before you brush that question off with a “no, won’t happen to us ever”, please remember this – after childbirth, your body goes through a hormonal roller-coaster that will change the way you think, prioritize and act.

A bouncer is a small baby seat suitable for infants from birth until they are about a year old. The seats cannot move freely (unlike a baby swing) or considerably (unlike a baby jumper). However, the seat is slightly flexible, so a slight bouncing motion is possible, either when an adult pushes it or when the child kicks it
Types Of Bouncers
There are mainly two kinds of bouncers:

It is also easy to carry when you are travelling and easier to clean. The disadvantage is that without any entertainment features, your child can get bored very easily
Bouncers with entertainment features: These are similar to basic bouncers, but with an extra bar onto which many entertainment features are fixed for keeping the baby occupied. These features include colorful toys, lights, music, vibrations and so on. Some of the bouncers will let you insert an iPad or a phone so that baby can see videos.....
