Kicking cold, the Tigress way

I am down with cold for the last two days and am running high fever. That doesn’t mean I am moaning or nagging mommy and daddy to care for me. I am a grown up girl and have amazing patience and perseverance in handling problems. Dad says he is proud of me and mom says I am very brave and strong.

Now you know that mom and dad don’t medicate me often and let the illness stay and let my body fight on its own. As my fever didn’t come down in two days dad decided to give me some 1 ml of Calpol to bring the temperature down and some T-minic to stop the nose irritation. With some nice oil massage and hot water bath my fever was brought under control. I was too weak to play or go running around which I love to do.

Nanamma called and prayed for me and applied oil and I am fine by God’s grace.

When dad used to come down with fever nanamma used to give him mutton stock or hot chicken soup and dad tried that on me when I was about eight months old and it worked! Since then you know what my favourite medicine is!

Some hot mutton stock mom prepared along with some hugging and keeping me warm brought me right back up. I am back to playing with ally toys which I missed in the last two days and as dad types this for me I am playing and singing rhymes with mom.

Thank you all for your love, affection and prayers. Peace and the Lord’s blessing be with you and your family.

I smile when I am weak

So I managed to keep dad at home today with my tantrums and fever. Mom and dad are on their toes waiting to see how I respond without medicine. High temperature and my dull demeanor convinced mom who in turn convinced dad to give me a couple of drops of calpol.

I was playing you know, when I got up and my smiles melted their fears down but the temperature was still high. Dad called doctor Bharath and he felt the same as dad and told to wait it out. I am going back to sleep now. I am told my grandpa and granny are worried about me. Granny is praying for my recovery. Won’t you too?

Gnite. Time for me to rest and fight with dad. *Weak smile*

Traditional Knowledge, Natural Growth and what not!



Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of treatment, works on the perception that materials that can be extracted from vegetables, plants and roots having some medicinal value. This perception and the details of the treatment process have been well documented in ancient texts.

You will find that nature has all the necessary solutions, medicines and vitamins on its own. It is just the effort needed to use them and you will be fine. Dependency on natural solutions is on the rise, especially with the demand for herbal/alternative medicine. 

Now even before I was born, my parents were on the lookout for organic things they can use for me. Nothing chemical, artificial for me! One of the products they trust and use for massaging is Dabur Lal Tail

It is very helpful if you massage your kid as it would help in relaxation and encourages a healthy lifestyle and bonding for the baby as well as the parents. It can assist children and infants in achieving age-appropriate gross motor skills.

Massaging neonates and infants has been an important component of infant rearing in many traditions and has been practiced globally over the years. The practice of neonatal massage has gained recent favor in many neonatal care units in developed countries. Recent evidence from human and animal studies suggests that topical application of certain oils may improve skin barrier function, resulting in a number of potential benefits to neonatal health. 

Dabur Lal Tail developed by Dabur India Limited contains all natural ingredients like Till Tail, Ratanjyot, Shankha Pushpi, Camphor and Urad. As per the literature, Till Tail or Sesame Oil improves growth and post-massage sleep, Ratanjyot protects against skin infection, Shankha Pushpi cures general weakness, Camphor improves blood circulation and Urad nourishes muscles & bones. 

Dabur is currently the 4th largest company in the Indian consumer goods market. In several categories, our brands like Chyawanprash, Real Juices, Dabur Amla Hair Oil, Hajmola, Dabur Honey, Hommade Pastes are market leaders. Best of all Dabu’s Lal tail is clinically tested. I am glad that the product is available in the market and is very trusted.

Vaccine time

My vaccination schedule. Dad doesn’t believe in them but had to do for me.

How can two drops of watery medicine keep you safe from many diseases?  I don’t know but had to go through so much as mom doesn’t want to take risk.
So many injections and so much pain. I am brave you know.

Did you get vaccinated? Do you know anyone who didn’t?

Injection!

We went to doctor today. Dr. Bharath was good. I grew taller from the last visit.

Two injections. Apparently painless but by evening I got slight fever. I was brave and didn’t cry at all. I just smiled 🙂 Dad took a leave today. When dad takes leave, mom is super happy.

Mom, dad and ammamma stayed with me all day. I couldn’t sleep on the bed. Dad or mom were holding me all through the day.

Ammamma came up with the idea of holding a wet cloth to my injection. It helped alleviate my pain and slept off blissfully. Thank you ammamma. Love you!

Colic!

I have colic anta.. mom said. I have some uneasy feverish pain and am feeling low. Dad kissed me and prayed. I was crying all through but with a little love and care and few drops of medicine I felt better. Dad hugged me and kissed me and prayed. I slept off in his arms with my head resting on his shoulder. It was superb.

Love you daddy. Bye bye Colic!
