The biggest USP of Kareena Kapoor Khan’s book ‘Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Pregnancy Bible: The Ultimate Manual for Moms-To-Be’, co-written by Aditi Shah Bhimjyani, is that the actress has not shied away from sharing the truth. She has also mentioned breastfeeding and other such aspects in a matter-of-fact manner.
Similarly, she had no qualms in confessing that when she was expecting Taimur, she went overboard with the shopping. She said that “I bought thirty onesies, three toothbrushes, five towels and extras of everything. For one little baby! On top of that, I got so many baby items as gifts.”
Kareena then confessed that she now realized it was not needed and that she ended up passing things on to my friends.
When she went shopping during Jehangir aka Jeh’s pregnancy, she admitted that she was sensible. She said, “I bought five or six onesies, four to five vests, two swaddles, two towels, one blanket and one basic oral and nail care kit.” She also surprisingly revealed that she is using most of Taimur’s garments for Jeh. She reasoned, “There’s nothing wrong with hand-me-downs! Growing up, I was given my sister’s (Karisma Kapoor) hand-me-downs all the time.”
Besides, Jeh currently even uses Taimur’s old cot, baby blankets, bottle warmer and sterilizer. If you are wondering why all these items were kept all these years, Kareena has a justification for it. She admits, “I never discarded any of Taimur’s baby stuff. I knew I wanted a second child. And I was very sure I would use Taimur’s things for my second child, whether it was a boy or a girl.” Kareena then went on to say that every book she read out to Taimur were kept in cartons and she pulled them out and organized his nursery.
In another part of the book, Kareena Kapoor Khan also shared her joy of going for ultrasound sessions and ‘seeing’ the baby on the screen. She wrote, “Saif and I were always excited about going together for my scams. Before you wonder, I can tell you we were never bothered about finding the sex of either of our babies.”
