Crèches and Day Care Centers

Crèche or creche or  day care center is a place where working parents keep their child when they are at work. Working parents faces many obstacles in raising their child. After the termination of maternity leave, the working mothers have to get back to their work. Indian parents generally keep their child at home with their grandparents or babysitter. But due to splits in joint families, leaving the child only with the babysitter alone at home may not be safer. There are many cases of kidnapping of the child by babysitters in India. Many women leave their jobs only because of taking care of their child. So crèche or a day care center is the only source where working parents can keep their child during their office time. The crèche culture in India is very new.  With the increasing numbers of working parents day by day,  crèches are getting very popular.

Breastfeeding : Why so important?

Every new mother discovers her motherhood through breastfeeding her baby.  Breastfeeding is one of the most amazing act of motherhood. When my daughter was born, I was a new mother. At first I found it very difficult to breastfeed her. She was not sucking the milk properly. But after proper guidance from the doctor, I leaned the proper holding position of a baby while breastfeeding. So when I became mother for the second time,  I do not find any difficulties in breastfeeding my son.

It is recommended by the doctors that breastfeeding should ideally start in the first hour after a baby born. Mother's milk is considered to be the best food for an infant. It consists all the required nutrients that a baby's body needs for the first 6 month's of age.
