Getting a shot

One of the bravest things I have done till date is getting shots. With little noise, struggling and tears I can handle shots easily. Well that’s what I thought. Not this time though. Dad and mom were vary as I had grown up and can now recognize the street to the hospital and especially Dr. Bharath. I had slight cold as dad had given me ice cream (Yes, I like loads of it) the previous day and was uneasy. So when dad and mom took me to hospital, I wore my white and black dress and was bright.

Once we reached the hospital, I recognized and started getting restless and uneasy. Once in the docs cabin I started weeping. Now dad was holding me and had to request me to stay put.  While Dr. Bharath managed to give the shot, I was so sad and weeping.  But to their surprise, I calmed down after the shot. I remembered that the shot was simply a small prick and I didn’t bother and went back to pulling his stethoscope 🙂 I had slight temperature all day but didn’t bother mu at all and slept and played like there was no pain at all. Mom kissed me so many times and said I am a brave girl. 😀

Do your kids cry after getting a shot? How do you manage them? Dad rubs the injection spot so the medicine gets thoroughly spread and I don’t end up with pain. If it still hardens, then comes the ice pack. Tell me your story and how you help your kids fight pain after a shot.

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.

Growing up – healthy options

Growing up is tough. Trust me!

First of all we have to learn a lot of things. We are almost a clean slate when we come, don’t we? Now there are too many things happening all around and we have to just jump in and learn a lot in a short while before we can run this race and be a part of this amazing world. When you sit back and look at it, it is like boarding a running train. That too a super fast train and all you get is just a short while to look at it. God this is a tough job.

Okay while we are learning and training ourselves to take on this world, we are bothered by diseases and germs and what not. Now I am in good hands as mom and dad believe in alternative medicine and also that I should earn immunity(not the one like a pin on masterchef) but real immunity to strengthen myself and be ready to kick all diseases on my own with very little medication. I am not forced to take any medicines except for few drops of colpol and colic that too when I was too sick and weak when I was a little kid. Yep! I am all grown up now and am all of nine months 🙂 No I am sorry, you will have to wait for my recent pics for a little more longer.

I am also a member of this wonderful community in India called the Indiblogger where we have a special posting for Dabur Chyawanprakash. Dabur is one of the few brands that are consistent;ly used in our home: Dabur laltail and dabur dantmanjan are almost used dialy 🙂 Coming back to this topic… Considered safe for consumption from over three years of age, this semi-solid health tonic promises three times more immunity and fights weakness, cough, cold and disease causing germs by building up your immunity. Now you know that I can’t read all the information on their website. So I tried to summarize all the important points here:

  1. Dabur is the first branded Chyawanprash in the country
  2. It is the highest selling Chyawanprash with more than 60% market share
  3. It is scientifically proven to provide 3 times more immunity that helps fight virus, flu and infections
  4. Dabur Chyawanprash has been consistently voted as the power brand of the country and is a trusted remedy for cough and cold for a majority of Indian household.
  5. It has been endorsed by celebrities like Sreeram lagoo, Amitabh Bachchan, Vivek oberoi, Virender Sehwag and now MS Dhoni
  6. Has a sugar free variant for calorie conscious people
  7. It is also available in 2 new exciting flavours Orange and Mango
  8. It contains natural Ayurvedic ingredients, which are being consumed safely for ages.
Why don’t you read more about the product here: http://www.daburchyawanprash.com and decide about the product?
I have a question for you at this point. Do you trust alternative medicine and believe in building up your immunity or would you rather fight the disease once it hits you? I think you should build your immunity so as to avoid falling sick. What do you say?

T-minic

I never took any medicine in last five months except once six drops of calpol for fever. Colicaid was the only medicine I took for the first three months when suffered a lot with colic. My Doctor uncle Dr.Bharath hardly recommends any medicine. He says I need to build immunity on my own and not depend on medicine for it. Dad and Mom too agree with his statement.

I was suffering from cold and runny nose for more than 10 days. Even after trying many sessions of steam I still had to fight with it hard. Mom couldn’t resist calling doctor and asking for medicine.

T-minic was finally prescribed by Doctor uncle. T-minic oral drops were so tasty with orange flavor. I wanted it in a glass but mom gave me just 8 drops with a dropper. I snatched the dropper from mom and had it till the last drop :). Just 8 drops two times and I am now back to normal 🙂

What do you use for your baby for runny nose? Aunty and Uncle, Mom is saying not to use any medicine without doctor’s advise.
