Getting into the new mom phase is overwhelming but it involves innumerable adjustments from new schedules, new demands, alterations in body and emotions and dealing with a whole person altogether! Here are a few tips to make the transition in a new mom a little less strenuous:
Try till you succeed:
Your baby is new to your techniques so the toddler will take time to respond to your styles. Keep trying till the infant adapts to your way of feeding, bathing and putting them to sleep. In this process you will eventually learn to figure out their likes and dislikes.
Address infant’s needs:
Though toddlers cannot talk, their gestures will indicate what they prefer. Do not force your schedules on them. For example let your infant eat on demand rather than time.
You do not want to limit your infant to house and hospital but ensure to not take them out especially during the flu season for optimal infant care.
Believe your instincts:
If somebody has advised you to put your baby to sleep on their stomach, doesn’t mean you have to follow it. If you find a better way, believe your guts in consideration with the baby and trust yourself as you are the mother!
Sleep when the baby sleeps:
Hectic schedule might leave you with inadequate sleep that will keep you cranky throughout the day. You might even end up feeling frustrated with the baby or your husband. Make sure to catch naps when the baby sleeps as time will replenish you.
For new born baby care always be equipped with extra pair of clothes, diapers and food because you never know what the baby can call for.
Keep calm and aloof yourself:
Remember that sometimes situations might get out of control but it is a phase and it will pass. To keep yourself gathered and focused it is crucial to spend some alone time.
