This December, the warm winter sun shone brightly in the land of a million palm trees, Bahrain. Believing that every challenge is an opportunity, this great nation has achieved several strides this year, thus instilling hope in the heart of every expat. At the 8th Annual International Conference conducted by the Bahrain Chapter of ICAI (BCICAI) at Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel, several rounds of discussions happened on how “Challenges Creates Opportunities” and how we need to cash in on the same. UAE Exchange Bahrain sponsored and participated in this conference, on 2 and 3 December 2016.

At the Bahrain Chapter of ICAI

Standing high on the spirit of facing challenges, waving flags, carrying red and white balloons, proud Bahrainis sported T shirts, jackets, scarves, and caps that read “I Love Bahrain”! With such pride, Bahrainis commemorated and celebrated their freedom from the British, on Bahrain National Day (16 December 2016).

We too joined hands with the Kerala Muslim Cultural Centre (KMCC), to celebrate the Bahrain National Day on 23 December 2016 at Indian School, Isa Town. The gathering of over 1500 people enjoyed the cultural performances of the school children.

Sports and Bahrain are inseparable. Though football is most popular, other sports such as athletics, basketball, cricket, rugby, horse racing and motorsports have been ruling the roost too. Bahrain’s Maryam Yusuf Jamal, was the first female athlete from a Persian Gulf nation to win an Olympic medal in 2012. What else could stand as a better testimony?

One of the most thrilling football championships, Yuva Cup 2016 was conducted between 15 and 18 December 2016 at the Busaiteen Sports Club, Muharraq. We sponsored and participated in this really exciting tournament where the YUVA Team and KMCC team stood neck to neck, and finally the Yuva team won the match. The feeling was insane.

It was not just football that made us feverish this December, we caught the cricket fever too and participated in the TISCA Cricket tournament conducted at the Busaiteen Ground on 23 December 2016. Apart from this, we also went sponsored mainstream athletics such as 500 meters, 100 meters, shot put, long jump tournaments, held at the Pravasi sports meet in Ahli club.

Motherhood (and indeed fatherhood too) is a life-changing experience. The first few weeks of being a new parent can be an emotional and anxious time. Thankfully, there exists a host of baby-related technologies that can make life easier for worried new mummies. Here, in alphabetical order, is our list of the top technologies for parents of small babies.

Breastfeeding app: There are lots of apps available which allow you to keep track of nursing sessions, the side you nursed on last, and alternate breast and bottle feedings. A popular app you can try is “Baby Tracker: Nursing”.

A new mom Technologies that can make your life better
Online forums: Online communities have come into their own, lending much needed advice and support. “British Mums Dubai” is an example. The website is aimed primarily at expat mums and offers baby advice, weaning tips, competitions and access to a community of mums who’ve already been there and are ready with helpful advice. It’s linked to their Facebook group, which you can request to join.

Digital Ear Thermometer: You will use it many times every day, to check whether that crying is because your baby is ill or just fussing! You can also use it at night without waking the baby up if he or she feels hot. It’s not glamorous, but is an essential piece of technological kit.

Itzbeen Pocket Nanny: This hand-held device helps you record and monitor your baby’s naps, feedings and diaper changes- essential for those sleep-deprived weeks where you can’t remember the last time you changed your baby!

White Noise Machine: There are many of these available, and all emit white noise similar to that heard in the womb, to help shush your baby to sleep. A popular option is the Baby Shusher, which emits a constant rhythmic shushing sound designed to mesmerise your baby into a calm sleep.

WiFi baby monitor: The days of the static “radio” baby monitor are long gone. Baby monitors have revolutionised in the digital age, and now use WiFi, 4G and smartphones so you can easily keep an eye on your sleeping baby from anywhere. The best ones offer high-security, password-protected streaming to keep you and your baby secure.

There are many technological advances to help make your parenting experience better. But perhaps the most essential piece of technology is a data-enabled smartphone, whether to google a strange rash, look up baby products, or simply while away the midnight feeds with some gentle browsing.

Happy parenting!
