Organization is very essential factor to save our sanity these days.  We collect lot of things and keep them lying around us without serving their purpose sometimes.

Earlier this year, I read a book called Spark Joy by Marie Kondo.  I felt like though I knew how to tidy things up, I was missing the whole point. Tidying up things should be one time, once done, there is no need for tidying up it again but just occasional check in.

I’m so thankful for her teaching. I felt like her teaching is actually an Art of living.

Here are the things I learned from her book Spark Joy:

  1. Sort things by category.

We often make mistake by sorting things by location. Huge NO! Always sort things by category; not by location.

According to her, purge and organize in this order:

  • Clothing
  • Books
  • Papers
  • Komono (miscellaneous items) and Sentimental mementos
  1. Make this a onetime event

Tackle each category entirely. “If you tidy just a little every day, you’ll be tidying forever.” Instead follow the systems that work for long run.

  1. Keep only items that “Spark Joy”

Go through and hold every item that you own, giving away anything that doesn’t make you feel happy. Cherish the items that remain.

  1. Apply gratitude

Thank giveaway items for their service and purpose before you let them go.

  1. Use what you already own

Don’t start by rushing to buy special organizers you hope will do the work for you. You can reuse shoeboxes as drawer dividers or for other organization purpose.

Also invest in things which could Spark Joy to you. I love plants and flowers, so I brought lot of indoor plants and flowers because they do Spark Joy to me!! 

Ask yourself if it sparks joy when you do your organization next time!

PS: With your NursElet, you can reuse your prior clothes which spark joy to you during breastfeeding!

It was so much fun to do a little video for our local library about “Tell Us Your Library Story”. As you might know that I have learned sewing from our local library few years back and that sewing skill helped me to create NursElet and hence this whole small business world! I’m so very grateful for the Alameda County Library.

When Alicia from Fremont Main Library approached me to share that how library has helped in our NursElet story; I couldn’t resist myself to bring awareness of library programs. You can learn anything from sewing to marbling art, air plant to robotics, bike repair to canvas art! There’s something new to learn for all ages from newborn to seniors. 

Alicia was a great host. I enjoyed working with Josh and Noelle. You guys made me feel so comfortable.

Stay tuned for the video. Meanwhile if you’re from bay area, you sure want to check out Alameda county library for all possible resources. You never know whom you might be inspiring next! 

Xo, Rupal

A nipple shield is a flexible silicone nipple that is worn over the mom’s nipple during a feeding. If nipples get sore, use nipple shields (breast shields) to protect them during breastfeeding.

Basically, Nipple shield fits over the nipple, and the baby then sucks through it. Generally nipple shields are made from silicon type soft material however there are some sterling silver, and metal nipple shields are available in the market.

Small, weak or sick babies often have difficulty latching on to the breast. A nipple shield makes latching easier and prevents the baby becoming discouraged. You may want to try other options before using nipple shields whether you really need to use it. It is better alternative to have a baby on the breast with a shield than not on the breast at all.

You may want to consultant lactation consultant as nipple shields should in general be considered a short-term solution and should be used under them.

What is Umbilical Cord?

In placental mammals, the umbilical cord is a conduit between the developing embryo or fetus and the placenta. During prenatal development, the umbilical cord is physiologically and genetically part of the fetus and normally contains two arteries and one vein, buried within Wharton's jelly. The umbilical vein supplies the fetus with oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood from the placenta. Conversely, the fetal heart pumps low oxygen containing blood, nutrient-depleted blood through the umbilical arteries back to the placenta.

Cleaning Umbilical Cord:

  • Umbilical cord stump dries and drops off within a week of birth. Clean this area daily to avoid infection.
  • Gently wipe the skin creases around the stump with baby wipe.
  • Continue cleaning in the same way after stump has separated so the area heals quickly.

Big news out of California!  

Gov. Gavin Newsom has unveiled a proposal to end sales taxes for diapers and period supplies.  

Plus, he has proposed a $1,000 tax credit for families with children under 6. 

“From diapers to childcare, raising kids is expensive wherever you live,” Newsom said in a statement. “But when you factor in the cost of living here in California, it is close to impossible.” 

Female lawmakers have tried to end sales taxes on diapers and tampons for years, arguing they should not be taxed because they are medically necessary.
