When a couple embraces parenthood, their lives change completely. From backpacking and exploring the world together to planning a trip for months keeping in mind the comfort of their little one, from buying alcohol, chips and junk to purchasing baby stuff like diapers, baby shampoo, oil and formula milk, from the play station at your home getting replaced with ‘Alexa, play the nursery rhymes’ to spending the weekend sleeping being changed to adjusting your sleep cycle according to the baby, though couples take time to adjust into their new routine post embracing parenthood, they enjoy every bit of it.

On Mother’s Day 2020, which marked to be the first one for Geeta Phogat, she had spoken about her experience of dealing with weight gain post-pregnancy and how seeing her child not being able to breastfeed was painful for her. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, speaking about her concerns as a first-time mother, Geeta had remarked, “Pregnancy ke baad I have gained 25 kg weight. Main ek athlete hun aur mai fit body mein confident mehsoos karti hun. Is body main aisa nahi hai ki mujhe achha nahi lag raha, lekin main chahti hun ki main apni fitness barkarar rakhoon... So recently, when Arjun turned four and a half month, I resumed my workout. Usi time maine dekha ki Arjun ache se feed nahi le paa raha tha. Toh humare physiotherapist ne salah di ki abhi heavy exercises mat karo jab tak bachha breastfeed le raha hai. That’s why I had to pause my exercise regimen because right now my kid is very small and uski health meri health se zyaada important hai!”
Scheduling her routine according to her baby boy and how lockdown came as a challenge for them, Geeta Phogat had stated, “Ab jake online delivery start hua toh fir se diapers aur baby oils vagera mangva rahe hai. Maine khareed ke toh rakhe the lockdown ke pehle magar kam pad gaye.” Revealing how her husband, Pawan Saroha has been a doting father to their child, Geeta had continued, “Pawan har tareeke se help karte hai. Main apne aap ko lucky manti hun ki mujhe aise husband mile... Hum dono ko hi baby ki needs ke according manage karna padta hai. Arjun ke aane ke baad, maine apni maa ko phone kiya aur bola ki iske janam ke baad mujhe pata chala hai ki maa kitni mushkilo se bachho ko bada karti hai... Magar main ye enjoy kar rahi hun. Jab baby ko muskurate hue dekhti hun toh apaar santushti aur sukoon milta hai.” (Also Read: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's Unseen Childhood Pictures Prove Daughter Aaradhya Bachchan Is Her 'Mini-Me')
