The annual event provided a common platform for all the family members, who enjoyed an array of events like nappy-changing contest and lullaby singing.  As the event coincided with the Mother’s Day celebrations, it got more colourful.

The fathers of newborn babies tried their hands at nappy- changing contest. The event saw a lot of enthusiastic participants and was conducted in several rounds. The contestants were judged for their quickness, gentleness and patience in handling the babies. Not just parents, even grandparents took part in many innovative events.

In the lullaby singing competition, more than 25 contestants crooned melodious songs for their little ones. Finally, Ravi Arora, father of Angel, who sang a lullaby drafted by the grandfather of Angel, won the prize outclassing all female contestants.

Diya Abhilash won the second prize for her melodious Malayalam lullaby. Mothers and their toddlers scorched the ramp in the ‘Prince and Princess of Cloudnine’ event. It was Samarth N, a cute nine-month-old baby boy, who was adjudged the ‘Prince of Cloudnine’.

“The concept of organising events for children and parents is new to India. Through such events we want to sustain our relationship with our clients for long. And on ‘Mother’s Day’, this is an apt way to show our appreciation for all the sacrifices a mother does everyday,” said Dr R Kishore, Managing Director, Cloudnine.

“After childbirth, we mothers are restricted to our homes for several months. Today, I enjoyed all the events with my family. I was so happy to see my husband win the prize in lullaby competition. I didn’t expect that such a big crowd will turn out for this event. And this is the first time I have came across such an event, where even newborn babies could win the prize,” says Shruthi Arora, a mother.

A fashion show by expectant mothers was the cynosure of all eyes. They set the ramp on fire by featuring collections from ethnic, formal and casual wear designed by former ‘Miss India’ Shruta Kirthi.
