Boys!

For the past week, my boys have been having lots of fun together. First Subhash took over Rohan's bathing duties the entire week while I finished my morning walk which in turn saved me loads of time. From the oil massage to the bathing to the towel drying to putting on his clothes, both dad and son chat and sing and coo and make merry!

Then weekend I took the liberty of going to my regular salon. Since I am pumping now, its a little easy to leave the baby and get out for sometime. Subhash and he had the morning to themselves and apparently the guy was too good and slept most of the time. If only he would do that more often during my working hours! ;)


Well, anyways, its good to be the only "girl" in the house for now. You can keep your place of exclusivity of "ghar ki lakshmi" :D :D I always wanted to have a girl since I thought boys were not that much fun to bring up, but I confess now, I'm rather enjoying my only-girl-in-the-house status ;)

Oh God, really! Don't tell me you want another boy. I have two and man they can be so loud and physical. I would have loved to have a girl to balance out the aggression:). Wait till your boy is a little older before jumping to conclusions :). Must say all men these days are so hands on with their kids, my hubby is too. We really are lucky!

@Rachna - Hmm.. I should respect your experience and hold off then :) I also heard from someone that after a boy when they had a girl, the boy was all zoned out with the pinks and the Barbies :)) I guess girls adapt better than boys ;)

BTW, I removed the part about wanting another boy since I didn't want to attract potential women's lib activists:))

We are planning to move back to India, and since I could pump during my stay in US at work, I just wanted to check with you on that...(A little background - I have a 5 month old son n planning to breastfeed him till 1 year. We are going to move to Bangalore and I shall search for a job after reaching there) Any info. is appreciated..thanks !!

Yes they do, most of the hi-tech industry campuses do have these facilities.

Hi Divya,
I am planning to buy a breast pump for frequent pumping, which model do u suggest...where can i get them in India(hyd) and how much do they cost...any info pls...

DivSu said...

Sneha - I am not too sure about the latest models - I've been out of the business for a long long time now. When I had my younger one recently, I continued to use my Pump in Style which I bought when I had the first one. I do know that Medela has a more latest model now but it is very pricey. About 36 to 43K I imagine for the higher end models. Still I would say if you can afford it, go for it, since it is something that saves you a lot of effort, especially if you are going to pump regularly. Not sure about other brands since I've not used them. I know it is not much help, but this is all I know!

Sneha Latha - that is sorry to know - I never faced any issues as such. I do have a separate blog on motherhood but that is more my observations on kids milestones, it doesn't have any information that will be useful ;)
