Being a parent changes our lives, especially if we are just starting to grow a little family. For first-time parents, it can be overwhelming as it is exciting.
To keep us in place, here are a few simple tips — yet very important reminders — which might just help us on those days when we least expect it.
💡1st: For starters, you are in it together Moms and Dads 💚
💡 2nd: Decoding each of your little one's cries will be beneficial to both you and your baby.
💚 Research says, a baby has different cries for each of their need. You can look it up on reliable parenting websites or you can check What to Expect: The First Year (a month-to-month guide for parents with babies/infants) as they have a list describing each newborn cry.
💚 Parental instincts are even more trustworthy so don’t second guess yourselves in your very own domain.
💚 A newborn’s needs are also very basic, so you only have to make sure you are keeping your bundle of joy secure and happy.
💡3rd: There can be myths in baby-caring; always check with your pediatrician first.
💚 For legitimate references, the What to Expect book (they also have an app) can sweep off your feet with their easy-to-understand guides, witty explanations, and heartfelt advice.
💡 4th: Avoid getting under the weather; eat and drink lots of Vitamin C because you are gonna need it for those round-the-clock sleep deprivation phases.
💡5th: Every new parent naturally hits a few slip-ups especially when you are practically run-down. So cut yourself some slack, and just enjoy your precious tiny blessing.
💡6th: Pray -- now this one never gets old.
The sun always shines every morning and being with your little one, even if you’re only getting forty winks, makes each waking moment very special.
