Baby Dust and Sticky Dust

In India, we always start something with the blessings of God to ensure things go smoothly.

This, being a maternity and baby blog, I thought only befitting to start with this topic! 🙂

We always come across the terms “baby dust” and “sticky dust” on TTC(trying to conceive) and maternity forums.

Baby Dust is a term meaning good luck with conceiving a baby and a hope that it will happen soon.

Sticky Dust is a term meaning good luck with a current pregnancy, in hopes that it ends with a healthy baby. This is commonly used when a mother has had a previous miscarriage.

Sticky Baby Dust is a term meaning good luck with conceiving a baby and a hope that it will “stick” – as in, the pregnancy will last and won’t end with bad news or a miscarriage. This term is more commonly used in groups where mothers are trying to conceive a ‘rainbow baby’ – a term given to babies who are born after a previous miscarriage, the rainbow after the storm.

 

So wishing all the couples trying and those who’ve already conceived, lots of Baby Dust, Sticky Dust and Sticky Baby Dust!

 

Loves!
