Babies and Five Senses

Babies and  five senses

Have you ever thought what life would be if we missed one of the Five senses that we have? Well, I have often wondered and shuddered with the fear of missing on to so much beauty that the world brings along.

This post brings into light how little babies and toddlers perceive things through the 5 senses. I had written on 5 senses last year for a photo challenge and it has been long that I wanted to share it here on the blog.

Our Olfactory glands get activated soon after the birth and breast-crawl is a proof to it.
I have always wondered how, even when in deep sleep, Little A always managed to turn the right way to find the boob.

It was a miraculous sight, when A was put on my chest some less than half an hour after being born and in no time he was doing what he had to, suckle like a pro with just 9 months of existence in the womb and few minutes outside. I was all tears, looking at him and that feeling is inexplicable!

Review: Mamaearth Nourishing Hair Oil for Babies

Hair oiling/ head massage has always been difficult with this little ball of energy. He sits still for regular massage, but not for champi. We recently started using nourishing hair oil by Mamaearth and guess what? It is the lovely packaging that keeps him engaged.. mama sings “baba white sheep” spins a few stories around it and baby learns a few new things everytime while getting his champi (head massage) done with this awesome smelling hairoil. Jojoba oil in this hair oil helps in keeping the scalp healthy and avocado oil stimulates the hair growth. The oil with its unique concoction also treats cradle cap.

More about the oil-
Like all other Mamaearth products, this hair oil too is a MadeSafe certified product. MadeSafe certification is given to household products that are safe to use and do not pose any potential threat to health and environment.  The oil contains no mineral oils or artificial fragrances, key ingredients of the oil being – jojoba oil, coconut oil, Avocado oil, lavender oil and vitamin E.

My experience-  I loved the oil, very light on hair though you can’t say that it is nonstick, but it is pretty light for a hairoil. Leaves the hair soft and shining after wash. It has lovely mild lavender fragrance.

Pricing and packaging- It comes in a sleek bottle with spray nozzle and has double lids (one for the nozzle and one for the bottle)

100 ml bottle is priced at INR 299/-
