Meet up with other moms to share ideas

If you have never had a child before, you might feel a bit unsure about what you exactly need for your baby. It’s normal as you might not have been surrounded by children in your life. Therefore, the best way to get clued up on everything you need to know about your newborn is to talk to other moms. You might want to speak with your own mom for advice on your baby. Additionally, you can also meet new people by meeting up with other moms to share ideas. You can easily find baby groups you can attend where you can speak with other mommies. Also, meeting moms to be will allow you to all share ideas on what you should buy for your baby. They might grow into strong friendships, and your kids might be friends as they grow up.

Research online first before making any purchase

When you first enter the child section in Wal-mart, you might feel overwhelmed at everything they sell. After all, it’s hard to know what items you need for your baby. Therefore, before making any purchase, you need to research online first, so that you know it’s the right item for your baby. You don’t want to buy a pushchair and then wish you chose a more practical one for your newborn. When looking online, you can often find which items are trending for babies. For example, you may read about Britax travel system, the hottest travel system this year. Therefore, by researching online, you will have a good idea of what would be ideal for your baby.

Don’t be afraid to ask the midwife questions

A lot of us have burning questions about our newborn and are unsure of who to turn to for help. After all, you can’t rely on sites online to give you information for your baby. Therefore, when your midwife comes to visit, you need to make sure you are asking her for help. She will be more than happy to advise you if you have questions. After all, she is there to ensure your pregnancy goes well, and the baby has a healthy upbringing.

Prepare for the birth of your newborn

Of course, every birth is different, and it’s hard to plan what will happen on the day. But you need to prepare a few things before the day arrives. For starters, you need to pack your hospital bag, so you are ready to go. You should also choose who you will want to attend the birth. Some women like their moms in the room, as well as their partner. Getting all these small details ready will ensure it goes as smoothly as possible. You can read about my birth story in this previous blog.

Remember to ensure you get stocked up on diapers and wipes before your newborn arrives.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
