Being a first time mother comes with a lot of challenges on how well to and not to care for your little one. If go running Everytime he/she whimpers or U let her quiet down on her own, if U co-sleep or put him down in his cot.
Remember do what ever you think feels right to you and suits your baby’s needs rather than trying to do what everybody tells you to.
1. You’re the expert
Taking advice doesn’t hurt , but also don’t be afraid to ignore that advice, and go with your instincts. Do what you feel comfortable with.”
2. Comparison is not your friend
Do not always want to try the same things your friends applied while taking care of heir babies
or compare your child to others. Remember: every child is different.”
3. Help is not a four letter word (although it actually is)
If the offers are not coming in from people , then don’t be scared to ask for help.”
4. “This too shall pass”
“Almost everything is a phase, and things change all the time. Not sleeping more than four hours, hating the bath, throwing food all over the house? This will pass.”
5. Sometimes, babies just … cry
Baby often times cry just because they want to do so and not for any other feared reasons baby, Comfort them, rock them, sing calmly – but don’t feel you have to stop it. Sometimes we feel like we have to fix everything, and it’s an awful amount of pressure.”
6. NOTHING is more important than sleep
“Sleep when the baby sleeps if you can, rather than trying to get things done – the housework can wait!”
7. Parents are allowed to get it wrong
“Don’t panic if you make a mistake. Many of us have made them too, and our children survived!”
8. You’re already doing an ace job
“Believe in yourself and your parenting skills. Confidence comes with time – but love and care will take you a long way.”
