Parenting is a bliss, perhaps the most exciting experience. Nevertheless, it is fairly tough to build a bond that lasts lifetime. Baby care is challenging — encompassing breastfeeding, nursing and nurturing the newborn, sleep, diapering and monitoring the child’s growth and development, and keeping an overall track of his/her well being. It can be certainly a difficult thing to do, especially for busy parents where both work outside home, and childcare duties might need to be outsourced.
There is a glut of apps, baby gadgets, and smart devices for the young toddlers —tracking down their needs, moods, diaper changes and feeding. Smart bottle feeding. Tender tots under camera and sensors with logs of feeds, naps, and moods. Bluetooth, onesies, smart diapers, i-potties, and baby screens in lieu of cradles and constant attention.
These high tech baby gadgets can help parents look after their kids and make the nitty-gritties of parenting easy.
But are those data and records relevant? Is this safe technology for the little angels — all these need to be evaluated.
Hypoallergenic, pastel-green coloured sock to be worn on the baby’s left foot. It uses pulse oximetry, a technique to measure the oxygen and heart levels of the baby and transmits the readings to the connected phone. If it tracks high or low breathing and heart rate, it immediately sends an alert to the connected devices. Owlet fits for newborns to 18 months old.
Excellent baby tracker app that tracks the baby’s feeds, sleep, nappies, baths, inoculations, and pees. The app gives a analyzed data about the infant’s activity and helps you deal accordingly.
Ensures both the parents and baby sleep soundly. The dress is made up of soft cotton with respiration sensors at the top. These sensor monitor sleeping session of the baby and divides it into periods of active sleep, quiet sleep, wakefulness. It notifies you when the baby wakes up, temperature, postures and other activities of the little one. The information is processed and sent via bluetooth to the Lilypad, which further transmits the data to the connected phone/device.
Nappies that examine the child’s urine and detects urinary infections on the basis of bacteria and pH level of urine. These diapers have chemically treated tabs on them which reflect color changes if they are any infections. The parent can analyse this data and consult a doctor if needed.
This bottle regulates the feeding timing of the baby. It keeps in check how fast the baby is feeding, and what quantity, how to hold the bottle correctly, avoid air bubbles in the bottle.

These friends keep it real by acknowledging that they’ve had hundreds of issues and fights over the years. But they’ve ridden it all together and here they are, their friendship (and the fights) still intact and going strong.
I’d gone on a digital kaffeine detox and it’s been quite a while since I watched the Koffee with Karan 7 episodes.
But ever since I’d read the news that Gauri Khan may be one of the guests of the show, I knew I didn’t want to miss this episode. Even though there would be no Shah Rukh Khan, it didn’t matter.
In fact Gauri Khan, queen bee of all Bollywood wives, is enough on her own! And when there are buddies Maheep Kapoor and Bhavana Pandey, do we need anyone else?
At the age of 60, my mother started earning her own money. It instilled a sense of pride and confidence in her that I could never see earlier.
Most of us grow up idolizing our mothers. I wasn’t an exception, either. As far as I can remember, I have always been more attached to my mother than my father.
Ma, who never had anyone to support her after marriage, worked extremely hard to bring me up.
Despite coming from a remote village in Bangladesh, she was far-sighted enough to realize the importance of English and made sure that I got admitted in a reputed English-medium school.
