In this pandemic, where the children are missing out on the essence of what it is to go out and play with others, keeping them engaged in various activities is imperative. Also keeping them aloof from the addiction of digital gadgets is very crucial. Celebrity mommies are making sure that their children get the best of their childhood even amidst this pandemic. It takes a lot of creativity and time to build a unique connection with the toddlers and to inculcate new learning experiences into them at the same time.

And I can see Ekbir taking so well to all the songs, bhajans, music and everything I listened to as I can see him relate to it. From his playtime to his lullabys, this music works wonders for him. I would always hear everyone tell me when I was pregnant that Ekbir could feel and hear what I could but I actually see it now and it just feels so beautiful, like we have had a connect even before he had one with anyone else in this world, one of mother and child!"
