Have you ever wondered which diaper is best? How to care for an umbilical cord? Why you want to breastfeed or bottle feed your baby? Who has the best stroller or carseat for your precious bundle? How do I get my 5 month old to sleep for more than 4 hours at a time? Do I always need to use diaper cream? How can we bond as couple now that we have this baby?
These questions and more will be tackled in a series of upcoming blog posts (With the hope of becoming classes in the future for the postpartum stages of parenthood.)
Parenting is hard and each parent is unique! Your baby is unique too! I remember being a new parent and reading every book, website article, blog and magazine I could get my hands on! How many of you are the same way?
Then this sweet little baby was placed in my arms and POW…I immediately knew nothing!
My birth was harder than expected. My baby struggled to nurse right away. I was deliriously sleepy, and my partner was too! We tried everything, twice! Do you know what I mean?
Dear sweet new parents or parents again,
Your baby is special and you might be finding that you need support! Well, I don’t claim to know everything, however I want nothing more than your success as a parent!
Stay tuned as I unpack some of the great mysteries. Be prepared to laugh with me and maybe cry as I share the reality of becoming a parent. My hope is to put tools in your arsenal as you jump of the cliff into the greatest calling there is…PARENTHOOD.
Feel free to message me with questions. I will respond with links of ways you can educate yourself! And feel free to share yours! Parenting well is a two way street and it takes a village!
Until next time!
