The moment you announce your pregnancy, you start receiving unsolicited advice. What to do? What not to do? This goes on and on even after the baby is born. The life as a new mom may seem intimidating and overwhelming especially with all the pieces of advice. But being a new mother does not mean that you cannot nail it like a pro.
It will be difficult obviously but with proper tips to guide you, you will find your way. After all, you are joining the ride of your life, coming across a lot of firsts in the baby’s first year.
As simple as the word seems it is not just about the baby and breast milk. But it is not. In the process, you might feel a lot uncomfortable and your breasts may feel sore. Plus, it is an emotionally exerting and a physically exhausting job. However, it is also when you bond with your little one. So, always remember to take due rest and maintain a proper nutrition.
Many parents will warn you that after having a baby you won’t get much sleep. And it is true. But that does not mean that you do not get to rest. Nap when your baby does as when he/she is awake you will be on your toes taking care of him/ her.
BOND WITH DAD
Most of the dads complain of the lack of bonding with the baby in his/ her initial years. As a new mom, always give the baby and the daddy some alone time. This will not only help them bond but the baby will learn to be someone else than you.
In addition, it will also allow you to rest.
TRY AND TRY
It will definitely take your time to understand what your baby responds well too. So, don’t be afraid to try different techniques.
When it comes to a newborn, you may never know what you need. Hence, always be prepared with things that your baby may need. From clothes to diapers, towels etc. carry everything with you.
ASK FOR HELP
Taking care of a newborn is not an easy task. And you don’t have to go through it alone. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. It will take time but you will get through it.
