There’s no feeling that could compare to holding your little one for the first time after they’re born. It’s the beginning of a beautiful bond. Mothers are always encouraged to do skin to skin which has extraordinary benefits to both mum and baby. It’s creates a bond and makes the baby feel safe, amongst many other things. But what about the fathers? Shouldn’t the bond between them and their little one be as equally important?

There are two times of people in this world; people who have breakfast like there’s no tomorrow and people who have breakfast with lunch in mind. Me? I’m in between
We planned to go to Sikka Cafe for breakfast with my bestie Fattouma who is here from Sweden for just 7 days. Sikka Cafe is located in City Walk Jumeirah. As it says on their instagram page it’s “a locally curated concept, where delicious Emirati food meets Indian and Iranian influences”

It’s that time of the year when everyone makes new year’s resolutions that they’ll probably abandon by first week of January? Or second week? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been guilty of that myself!
The best has to be my mum’s though! She decided last year that 2016 she would be a vegetarian…. well she was one for 4 days then Hardees double cheese burger happened! (Sorry maa, I love you)

I think I had the worse experience with Epidural, both times with Adam & Hana. When doing my birth plan with my Doctor the first time we decided to get epidural. I heard horror stories about it and I was so worried. So the time came and I got admitted, an hour or so before I gave birth I was injected with it and my god it was painful! Right before I gave birth my aunt came to check how I was and suddenly her face changed and she started screaming at the nurses & midwives, my back was bleeding and had what looked like black blood coming out as well. So the anesthesiologist came and did it again. You can imagine the pain of having to stay still while having bad contractions! It was painful!

When is it the perfect time to pack your hospital bag and little one? What do you really need for the both of you? What does baba need to pack?
I feel like I am pro now and know what I should pack and what I can leave behind. First pregnancy you always tend to pack everything, I basically moved my whole house to the hospital! Second pregnancy is so much different.
