When a baby is born in India usually elders of the family such as aunties, Dadi’s, grandparent and whole family come together to take care of a baby and come up with advice and tips for baby care.

But now as urbanization developed somewhere our family circle is fragmented. Due to nuclear families, long distance family relations and demanding career we are not staying in the joint family where the whole family comes together to care for the baby, due to which couples with first time parenting face many issues related to parenting.

To resolve their issues they go online. But due to the lack of content in the Indian context, they rely and depend on international context content.

In the space of baby care, the internet is awash with searches (2 million+ every month). More than 20 million caregivers on YouTube look for videos on caring for babies but this content is the lack of  Indian content and credibility, 41% of mothers are searching on youtube for queries related to baby care.

To address this concern of first time parenting couples, Johnson & Johnson come up with Indian context content which reminded them of home and help them to take care of their newborn baby in the best way. They create a space which will help new parents to know and identify what is ‘Best for (their) Baby’.

  • Result throw up on these two search engines are very appropriate each time when a particular question asked by a user.

For e.g: On Google Search, if the user typed in ‘bathing a baby’, they redirect lead to a content website (corporate website or Baby Center).

On the other hand, if the user typed in ‘how to bathe a baby’, they redirect to a demo video of how to bathe a baby.

  • Similarly, on YouTube, 3 types of techniques were used:
  • In-Search, where people got video results when searched on YouTube;
  • Sequential bucketing, when person search for some particular video another related video will also show up in suggestions  such as  if a person searched for how to put a diaper, he was also suggested a video on how to take care of diaper rashes; and finally,
  • Annotations, where from one video, the user was led to another lateral video to maintain the engagement.
