“My biggest tip? Take time for your partner and he needs to do the same for you. Post baby, it’s massive changes and this is one space that needs loving.”

Sameera Reddy

“I started off being a pretty strict mom but I find myself easing off, because now I'm not trying to figure Renee out; she tells me. She had a very strict itinerary because it was the only way to get her to understand discipline.”

Sushmita Sen

"Our job is not to give our children perfect childhoods. It is to fill their heads with ideas, to honour their strengths and make them aware, but never underline their weaknesses"

Twinkle Khanna

Sonam Kapoor

“There is one thing that I am really strict about and that is (making sure that they are) brushing teeth twice a day. No matter how tired they are or how late they arrive after attending birthday parties, I make sure that they brush their teeth.”

Madhuri Dixit Nene

Kareena Kapoor Khan

"If you’re happy, your baby is going to be happy. When you're feeding your child, if you’re calm and happy, that goes to your child... be calm, yes, but definitely have fun!"

Mira Rajput Kapoor
