Traveling with milk allergy – food tips & ideas

Here are 3 photos of my son Tasmai (babyT) on our annual ritual of a family holiday in Goa, India. He’s aged 9.5 months, 19 months and 34 months here. We (as do many people) have to do at least one trip to Goa each year and we are glad that babyT has joined in our fun too. When I look at this collage of pics from the 3 holidays however, I realize  how it is becoming increasingly complex to manage his food allergies (milk) and take care of his meals. Traveling with milk allergy is not easy but we did it and very well too.

Traveling with milk allergies can be a daunting task. This year our holiday showed us that it will be difficult for our child to travel and eat comfortably like normal people do, but it is still not impossible to find the right alternatives and have a good time. This prompted me to write this blog post so as to help others find support and help.

Gulabjaam – a mouthwatering movie not to miss

My love for food is well known in social circles. And to top that I married into a community who also love their food. In our house, the most common discussion is “Aaj jevaila kai karaicha?” Marathi for “What should we cook today?” We think of food in our waking moments and in slumber mode too. And the icing on the cake or the Kesar on our gulab jamun is that we don’t just love to eat, we love to cook it. So when people called us, all out of the blue, and said “You guys must watch this Marathi film called Gulabjaam” we knew we shouldn’t miss it for the world. Continue reading

Rashes while cloth diapering? Here’s how to deal with it

You’ve chosen to cloth diaper and then you find your baby has developed a rash. You feel like someone just played a nasty trick on you. Did you just get conned by the Earth warriors campaigning for ‘no disposable diapers’? I assure you, you didn’t! Truth is that all babies get rashes at some point in their babyhood. Rashes can be due to teething, sensitivities or even food intolerances. So before you gather all your cloth diapers and set the pyre alight, let’s look at some common reasons why rashes can happen even to cloth diapered babies and let’s tackle them too. Continue reading

Stop before you self-diagnose baby’s feeding issues

When I wrote my post about milk allergies in infants I got many questions from worried mothers. They shared symptoms they saw in their baby and asked me if it was a sign of feeding issues in babies such as a milk or lactose intolerance. Although I have gone through similar experiences with my baby, I am no medical expert in this field. So, one advise I gave all these concerned mothers was that they consult their paediatrician, an allergist or an infant nutritional expert to check for feeding issues in babies. Today, I want to talk about some of the common feeding issues in babies and what they imply.

I know it can be terrifying to think that your baby has a feeding issue. But always remember that only a doctor is qualified to advise you about the right course of action. Whether you should move to formula or switch to a lactose-free formula is something that your doctor will tell you to do. Self-diagnosis by reading up online is a complete no. Continue reading

Babyproofing your new house before you move

Children under the age of four are the most at risk of a home accident and this risk increases when they are in an unfamiliar environment. Your curious little toddler will want to explore their new home, but won’t be aware of the hidden dangers.In order to protect them from accidents, you should ensure the new house is babyproofed before the baby ever sets foot inside. Don’t leave it until after you move. While babyproofing the entire house might seem like a daunting task, here are the main safety precautions you should have in place to keep your baby safe and happy. Continue reading

Healthy teeth for a healthy child – Interview with a Pediatric Dentist

While most new parents obsess over weight, height and other developmental milestones for their babies, there is one big area which they ignore. And that is dental care for kids! I did too! And unfortunately, we paid the price for it. You see babyT developed infant caries in his milk teeth. The only good part was that we saw an expert at the right time and found a solution before the condition got much worse.

That is why I make sure I tell all my readers about the importance of dental care for kids and why it is important to see an expert on children’s teeth at the right time. With this aim in mind I approached a friend – Dr Punitha S. Kamath who is a pediatric dentist, to tell me more about dental care for kids and tooth health for babies and children. Read on to know what she has to say, I am sure it will be an eye-opener for parents of children of all ages.
