    About Baby Dove
    When it comes to being a mother, there is no right or wrong way - only your way! This is why we partnered with Baby Dove to bring your baby superior skincare aligned to your instincts as a mother.
    The thought process and inspiration behind the naming of our Baby.

    We weren’t the kind of parents who had a list of names drawn up. Nor did we identify with people who had decided what to name their kids when the former were kids themselves. We also did not want to be clueless and have no name for our child the day she decided to arrive. All name suggestions from friends and family were welcomed, but my husband and I were looking for something particular.


    So we got thinking and pondering and used the 9 months of our pregnancy to decide what was it we wanted our baby’s name to be. I am a reader and through my pregnancy. I consumed books as I was aware that my reading time post delivery would diminish for awhile. While perusing through a novel I chanced upon a word that seemed to embody what I would want from my child's name. We wanted something meaningful, simple, beautiful, motivational, real but also a bit dreamy.


    “Ilham” fit this package so aptly. It has a straightforward meaning packed with promise, it means inspiration. We fell in love with this name and we decided that whether we had a baby girl or baby boy, the name would be Ilham.

    It is a fairly unique name and people really make an effort to understand and pronounce her name (we get frequent requests to spell her name, repeat it or explain it), and we really appreciate this. Along with her formal name, numerous pet names have also been attached to her such as Illy, Ilmus, Dollu, Elmo, Iggy and more. Every person close to her has their own pet name that they have ascribed to her and she knows and loves all of them!


    It was such a treat to see her name, as “Baby Ilham”, written on the personalised Baby Dove Bottle! What an absolutely wonderful surprise from World of Moms and Baby Dove! We shall always treasure all the wonderful goodies that you sent to us (and hope for more such super surprises!)


    If you too want a personalised Baby Dove baby lotion bottle with your baby’s name on it, take part in the activity! https://goo.gl/tUsJwB
