Sometimes..

Sometimes,you are so messed up. Your life,your thoughts,and your mind,that you do nothing. Instead you spend your time in clicking numerous pictures to show others that “Hell yeah! I am so good and happy”
When you are NOT.
You just stop doing everything or anything which was somewhat related to your progress before.
Sometimes you find yourself more troubled than ever.
That you write such posts.
Sometimes you become so tired of yourself that the only solution which you find good and sane is to be a coward and to die.
Sometimes,no matter how hard you try ,to hide your emotional self.
It shows up. In the form of angry tears or depression.
You know,it is just hard to express.
Sometimes when you cannot say it to anyone,then you just pen it down for people to read and understand. 
Which ends up getting more complicated than ever and you get success in hurting yourself once again. Because they don’t understand,they never can. 
Keep it to yourself and die slowly. 
So slowly that they wouldn’t end up hurting you.
So slowly that those who loved you ever wouldn’t end up blaming themselves.

STAND AGAINST HARSHNESS

We cannot resist the urge to touch a baby’s skin. We cannot decline this sudden wish to kiss the soft cheeks of the new-born. But this softness which we like,seems fading as time starts to run slowly. The softness of their skin is what makes a baby’s skin  different from ours.
For the safety and maintenance of their skin,parents try everything. From bathe the tiny tod in luke-warm water to changing the diapers every once in a while. But somewhere between this care,they forget some precautions,which should be kept in mind.
So in this blog post,I am going to suggest you parents out there some tips,which I think will help you out in taking more precautions and steps towards your baby’s soft skin.

Firstly,I will be writing a paragraph which will include normal safety steps which should be taken.
Remember, a newborn’s skin is soft and sensitive.
So try to keep baby’s skin hydrated by bathing in warm water for only three to five minutes. Avoid letting your baby sit or play or soak for long in soapy water. Apply a baby lotion or moisturizer immediately after bath while skin is still wet, and then pat dry instead of rubbing.
I had read about how babies are born covered in vernix, a white cheesy-looking substance that looks kind of icky, but is pretty important.

Vernix protects a fetus’s skin from amniotic fluid so it doesn’t get all wrinkly.
Unfortunately, the effects of vernix don’t last—once your baby’s been out in the real world for a while, his skin will never be as soft as it is in those first few months.
So here are some important ways,which I know will help you out in some or other way in protecting your baby’s softness:

1.GO FRAGRANCE FREE

As tempting as it is to use fragranced soaps,try to avoid using them during tub-time. A Non-soap cleanser with a neutral pH will keep your tot’s skin silky and soft without the risk of any irritation.

2.MOISTURIZE MORE AND MORE

Actually,this is the most important step. To lock in ambient moisture and humidity from their bath,you need to lube up those little legs and hands as soon as possible. Waiting too long can let dry skin set in.
Remember: Creams are much more hydrating than lotions,so let the lotions sit until spring.

3.DO DIAPER DUTY

A baby’s bottom is sensible and susceptible to rashes,so to avoid irritation,chage the diaper more often. (It is difficult,I know)
If you detect any signs of a rash or just want to keep them at bay,apply liberal amounts of healing cream or baby powder. For extra protection from allergic reactions or rashes,use only quality diapers. One such example is of Pampers.
Pampers brings you the softest ever Pampers Premium Care Pants. Its cotton-like softness is #SoftestForBabySkin and allows it to breathe, thus keeping baby’s skin soft and healthy, and your baby happy.

4. BUNDLE LIGHTLY

Avoid the urge to overdress your little-one during bone-chilling months- this just makes babies hot,sweaty and cranky;not to mention more likely to get a heat rash. As a rule they only need one more layer than we do. And the soft breathable cotton is the most comfortable and best for the baby’s skin.

5.PROTECT THEIR CHEEKS

It is the most exposed part to the mother nature’s harsh winter elements. Before you leave the house,butter them up and reapply as needed. Keep a baby-cream or lotion or petroleum jelly in your purse’s pocket. So that when needed,you can easily apply it on your baby’s skin.

So,if you want softness to remain protected and safe from these outer and inner harsh elements,then we need to follow all the above given 5 tips.
In the end,the baby’s skin can be kept safe,can be protected,only if we take a stand against the harshness.

Softies or Babies

               “Soft kitty,Warm Kitty..
                Little ball of fur…
            Happy kitty,sleepy kitty
               Purrr Purrr Purrrrr…”

Sure enough “Warm Kitty” is a children’s song, popularized by the characters Sheldon and Penny in the American sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’ where it is rendered as “Soft Kitty”.

Well,the reason I included this in my blog-post is not because I love kitties or this post is about kitties,instead don’t you feel these lines relate so adorably with a new-born kid?
Don’t they look like a soft ball ( of not fur but soft skin). They are warm and soft and everything, a small kitty look like.

But indeed with time,it is not necessary that a baby’s skin remains like the same before. The softness starts fading and before it fade completely,it is needed for us to take some important steps to keep that softness safe.

A variety of skin conditions can occur in babies and some skin care products may help, while others may make things worse.
So here is some knowledge and information which I have had in mind regarding this and I thought of sharing it:

Common Skin Conditions in Babies

Since babies have skin that is so sensitive, they often develop different skin conditions. You may not know what these conditions are or how to treat them. Here is a look at some of the common skin conditions in babies and some tips on how to deal with these conditions.

Baby Acne – One common skin condition babies often develop is baby acne. This usually looks like little pink spots on their skin, usually on their face. Because of the hormones from their mother, often the acne occurs but will probably go away without any special care.

Chafing – Sometimes chafing can occur when there is friction between skin and clothing or where skin rubs together. Avoid tight clothing to prevent this problem and put on cornstarch baby powder to help keep chafing from occurring.

Heat Rash – You may notice some small pink spots all over the body of your baby. A lot of humidity and heat can cause this. Keep your baby in loose clothing and avoid keeping them in areas that are too warm to help with this problem.

Eczema – Symptoms of eczema include skin that is scaly, irritated, and red. You need to keep skin clean and dry, and you’ll probably want to discuss this with your pediatrician. Babies with eczema usually need to use products that are designed for sensitive skin.

Cradle Cap – This skin problem includes patches that are very crusty on your baby’s scalp. Glands that are overactive can cause this. To treat the problem, apply a bit of baby oil to soften it. Then shampoo the hair and use a comb or baby brush to gently remove the cradle cap.

1. Common Skin Care Products for Babies – What You Should Know

There are a variety of skin care products out there for babies. Before you use them, you may want to learn a bit more about them. Here is a closer look at the common products you’ll find for babies.

Baby Bubble Bath – Bubble baths for babies may not be the best choice. They often have detergents in them that eliminate bacteria that is beneficial to the body. They can also cause urinary and vaginitis infections in babies. If you want to scent the baby bath, a bit of essential oil, like lavender oil, is a better choice.

Baby Soaps – Usually water will be enough when bathing your baby. If you think a bit of soap is needed, make sure the soap is mild. Look for soaps with natural ingredients like coconut, olive oil, or some palm oil. Use a lotion or oil to help replenish the moisture in your baby’s skin.

Baby Shampoos – If your baby only has thin hair, you may not need a shampoo. If you do decide to shampoo your baby’s hair, look for a shampoo that is very mild. Avoid any shampoos that have triethanolamine or diethanolamine in them. Other ingredients to watch out for include parabens, artificial color, and artificial fragrances.

Baby Powder – Of course, baby powder is a popular product, but some powders may not be the best for your babies skin. Beware of powders that have talc in them. Usually a powder that has a cornstarch base is the best option. The only places to use this powder include the genital areas, in creases around the neck, or under your babies arms.

Baby Oils and Lotions – Oils and lotions can help replenish moisture in your baby’s skin and can help relieve problems with irritation. However, you need to make sure you don’t use an oil that aggravates any skin problems. Look for oils and lotions made with herbal ingredients and avoid those that have mineral oil in them.

Other Important Baby Skin Care Tips

Now that you know a bit about baby skin care issues and common baby skin care products, there are a few other tips you may need to remember. Keep these tip sin mind as you care for your baby’s skin.

2- You Don’t Have to Bathe Your Baby Daily
One important baby skin care tip to remember is that you don’t have to bathe your baby daily. Newborns especially have delicate skin and a full bath each day may be too drying. A little sponge bath can do the trick in between baths.

3- Clean and Dry All Baby Skin Folds

You really need to ensure that you clean and dry all baby skin folds. Those folds, such as behind the ears and in the creases of the neck can dry out or they can retain moisture and cause skin problems.

4-Watch Out for Diaper Rash

Whenever you change your baby’s diaper, make sure you keep an eye out for diaper rash. If you notice a rash at all, make sure you carefully clean the bottom and then use baby powder to try to eliminate the problem.
It is also important to know about the quality diapers,which you should use for your baby. For example- Pampers.
Pampers brings you the softest ever Pampers Premium Care Pants. Its cotton-like softness is #SoftestForBabySkin and allows it to breathe, thus keeping baby’s skin soft and healthy, and your baby happy.

5- Be Careful When Choosing Clothing and Bedding

It’s also important for you to be careful when you choose clothing and bedding for your baby. Some materials may be harsh on your baby’s sensitive skin. Look for soft materials, such as cotton, that will be easy on their skin. Also be careful when washing your baby’s clothes and bedding. Never use harsh detergents, which could irritate their skin.

Keeping your baby’s skin soft and beautiful is important, but it is not always as easy as you think. Make sure you keep these tips in mind and use them to keep your baby’s skin healthy and safe.

Random

Does it happen with everyone or is it just me? Don’t you feel too sometimes,to get everyone’s attention for once. For once you want them to see through your eyes; you want them to listen to you instead of maintaining their own distance from you.
You want them to not judge you on the basis of what they hear,instead try to know you at least for once,for real.
But whatever you feel, in the end judgements will be made and decisions will be taken. Either way,you would end up staying where you were from the start.
Just forgotten,and ignored.
