General Tips For New Mom

  • Do Less

Most of the new moms in today’s culture usually think that they are supposed to get too busy with their children and do so much for them. What your baby needs more than anything is a self-aware and present mother who is grounded and gentle with herself.

  • Sometimes It Really Is Just A Phase

This could be for real, so just say it to yourself over and over again. They will go to the college with a soother. They would stop waking up three times a night. They will ultimately eat with a fork. So you can for now take it for what it is and stop trying and rushing the little one through any age or stage; you will one day look back and wish you had not done so.

  • Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff

If the child falls over for the very first time it is probably that you need not visit the emergency room. Sometimes it could be mild or not-so-serious stuff with your child, so breathe and calm down.

  • Try Disconnecting Nursing From Sleeping

A lot of pediatricians say that, if you stop nursing it may help you immensely in putting a baby to sleep without milk. You may add different stuff to your sleep routine like a bath, cuddle, jammies, book, brush, sleep sack, song, bed.

  • Find Perspective

Most of the concerns that parents seem to have with their kiddos ( in their infancy or adolescence) are unfortunately a projection of their own insecurities. If you can be aware of your own fears and how often you unintentionally impose them on your children it leads us to separate yourself from them. Rather try to really see and appreciate who they are, and also enjoy the process much more. You need to trust that your little child is unfolding just as he/she should, and it’s different from the timeline you have scripted for them.

  • Don’t Be Afraid To Ignore Advice

Everyone is likely to give you tons of advice when you are about to have a newborn or deliver a baby. It is extremely valuable to lend your ears to the perspectives and experiences of others, this may help you make your own opinions. But you must make sure that what is appropriate or works for some families may not work the best for yours. Let your own motherly instinct help you and listen to it instead.

  • Get Back Into Exercise At Your Own Pace

When you are cleared to exercise, it does not mean you are supposed to jump right back and at the same pace you were pre-delivery. To start with, keep the fitness goals manageable, small, and realistic for you. Also remember that every single bit counts, whether that is going for a stroll with your family or trying out a quick nap time workout.

  • Sleep

Sleep like you are not at all going to sleep for the next few years. You may allow people to help you. If your partner or family offers to watch your baby or bring food so you may nap it is most likely that they have been in your shoes. Do not try to be a Superwoman. You already are, as you have created and birthed a baby.
