A few days ago I was worried about Govind's stranger anxiety. But he surprised me with his response to a very different environment that he has been raised untill now. This sunday we had taken Govind to his father's village for the first time after his birth, on the occasion of his annaprashan. It was a journey of 4 hours. He co-operated well during the travel. He was welcomed like the prince of the village over there. Initially he cried out of exhaustion and overcrowding. But 30 minutes later as soon as I gave him his toys; he was surprisingly at ease. He started greeting everybody with open arms, smile, laughter and excitment. He stole everybody's heart with his activity. It felt as if he had known them all since ages. I felt so relaxed and proud for him. Everybody appreciated my efforts of raising him so well and also acknowledged my difficulties of handling a preemie all alone. I almost felt like a warrior queen who had won a battle ferociously. In such a short stay also Govind became so immersed in his playful mood that he started giving me tough time while feeding. We returned on monday. Yet the mood continued untill today afternoon. He was refusing to swallow anything except water and milk. I thought may be he has got some pain in throat, as he was shouting at the top of his voice with excitement. So I started giving him lukewarm water. But nothing changed. Then gripe water, himalaya Bonnisan and doctor prescribed digestive enzyme drop neopeptine came to my rescue. I hope that the playful mood is over with him finally.

What an experience of over-stimulated hyperactive baby management I got! My goodness. This is what makes mptherhood a roller coaster of happy moments, surprise, challenges and emotions; all flipping on to one another so instantly, time just flies away before we realise. And its gone before we can catch enough of it.

Here is a pic of Govind with his cousin Nancy!

Nancy is Govind's bade papa's younger daughter.

I don't have any pics of his annaprashan ceremony as there was no photographer. These were taken by other people and sent via whats app. #nightclubonbbc #nightclub #nightclubbing #govindlovesbbc

Kabhi kabhi baby hamko is tarike se co operate karte hain ki hame yakin nahi hota

I was fully prepared for his stranger anxiety and crankiness with the baby carrier at hand. But I didn't even take it out of the suitcase. Naiyya Saggi after feeding and little bit of walking around and cuddling he got engaged with his toys on the bed. He played with his toys for some time and qfter the diaper change; completely relaxed.

Thanks for sharing,, very good post,,Amrita Mallik

Bijal Joshi thank u dear!

Wow! Cute bacha 🥰❤️

This is sooo helpful and relevant

Congratulations AMRITA MALLIK ! I hope you enjoyed the ceremony.
I'm struggling a bit with stranger anxiety and separation anxiety but he seems to be trying to become social on his own now. I don't push him. I guess they grow out of it on their own.
There were times I thought he needed me but completely ignored me and there are times we just sit together and do nothing because he doesn't want to leave me.
All moments to be cherished though😘

Love to Govind. You are right. Mommyhood is a rollercoaster

I am also traveling to my MILs place soon for my LOs Naming ceremony....and so tensed how she will react to new place new people. Fingers crossed, hope her health stays good...carring all her necessities. Govind is lucky to have you n u r true warrior mom !

This is very relaxing..
