Jacket Similar // Top // Skirt // Bag // Sunglasses

Now that Baby Aadhav is almost 6 weeks old, he’s growing so fast. He smiles all the time and started interacting a lot more. It’s the best feeling ever to see your baby smile and laugh, On the flip side, Baby A has also started a gassy phase which is not fun for both of us. We aren’t really on a schedule yet so every day is different. A lot of blogger friends have recommended Babywise – an eat, play, sleep philosophy for babies. My pediatrician was not a big fan so I decided to wait till Aadhav is a little older to be on a schedule. I would love to hear from you on how you created structure with your little one.  For now, I’m accepting that change is the new normal and remembering to embrace it. So many of you asked about my favorite products or tips for new moms. I’m excited to share my Top 10-Must Haves for a New Mom on the blog today. I would love to hear your top must-haves in the comments section below!

Celebrating One Month with Baby Aadhav!

Top similar // Earrings BaubleBar //

On Saturday, we celebrated Baby Aadhav’s One Month Birthday. I can’t believe it’s been a month since I held my beautiful baby for the first time. The days really do go by so fast with a little one. These last four weeks have been the most beautiful, amazing, intense time of my life. Thankfully Aadhav makes it easy for us. As we get the hang of parenting, I’ll be sharing all the ups, downs, burps, and laughter with you. As a new mom, I’m learning so much, making mistakes, and trying to be the best mom I can be. Some days are better than others, but each day fills me with joy when I see Aadhav smile, grow, and experience the world for the first time. Everyday is different and everyday I feel more confident as a mom. I’ve also learned how important it is to have a support system. Having my Mom here in Singapore is truly a blessing. I could not do it without her. While my focus and energy is with Aadhav, my mom makes sure I am eating (all my favorite foods), resting (when I can), and helping with all the chores (there’s A LOT of laundry for such a tiny baby!). Each month, I plan to share an update on Mommyhood – stay tuned!

Personalized Baby Gifts with Soufeel

Name Necklace c/o Soufeel

Anything personalized with Aadhav’s name melts my new mamma heart. I have always loved personalized gifts, but there’s something about seeing your child’s name that truly makes your heart sing. When Soufeel connected with me to collaborate, I was excited to try their selection of personalized jewelry ranging from necklaces to bracelet charms. There are so many designs to choose from and best of all the jewelry is so affordable! My experience from order to delivery was so smooth and  I’m in love with how the jewelry turned out. Wearing my necklaces, bangle, and ring, I feel so close to Aadhav. In the last two weeks, I’ve only left the house a few times without the baby to run quick errands, When I do, I always sneak a peek at Aadhav’s name jewelry and send him a warm hug and prayer – letting him know his mama is coming home soon! Just for you, I am excited to share a 10% discount code ‘Kamana10’ for all Soufeel jewelry till October 1st. I hope you enjoy the personalized details as much as I do!

Introducing Baby Aadhav!

Robe c/o  Pajama Sutra // Swaddle 

Blessed to introduce Aadhav Bhaskaran! Born August 23rd weighing 6lbs, 14oz, 20in. Baby Aadhav and Mom are doing wonderful. Becoming a mother is truly the most beautiful experience and I’m excited to share this journey with you! It’s been such a blessing to have Aadhav in our lives and each day we settle more into our role as parents. Honestly it is (very) tiring but seeing our Baby Boy’s beautiful face, you forget about the tiredness, aches, and pains and do your best to give love and care to your little one. Each day is different, each day you learn more, and each day your heart fills with memories and laughter. This week we celebrated Aadhav’s First Week Birthday. I thought it was fitting to share his birth story since so many of you asked about the delivery. I’m writing this post on very little sleep so if some sentences don’t make sense, please forgive me!

What’s in My Hospital Bag?!

Getting ready for the home stretch! My due date is September 1st but I have a feeling Baby B will be making his debut early – let’s see! I can’t believe what a difference 2-weeks makes when you are pregnant. At 34 weeks – I will still pretty active, able to get around, and busy with baby prep. Since then, my energy level has dropped considerably. My hands and feet are still constantly swollen and my back is strained with the baby’s growing weight. Over the weekend, I could hardly leave the house, but finally did to go to the Temple (to receive blessings for our Baby B) and get my eyebrows done. My husband said he’s never seen me so determined than that Saturday evening when I just had to get my brows fixed up! Honestly, the last few days have been pretty overwhelming. When I feel the kicks and flutters of my little one – those feelings fade away. I am focusing on the blessings and excitement of meeting Baby B soon. It’s tough but so worth it.  If you follow me on Instastories, you know we finished the nursery just in time! I can’t wait to do a reveal soon. In the meantime, I’m exited to share what’s in my hospital bag. Please let me know if I am missing anything!
