I went to a beautiful baby shower this weekend. I hadn't been around so many first time moms to be in a long time. Probably since I was pregnant with my first child. I remember after that first baby was born I felt like I had joined a new club. The Motherhood Club. And there was so much that I had not expected!
It got me thinking, "What advice would I want to share with these new moms?"
My quick response would be, "Relax and enjoy babyhood. Go slow and stay home as much as possible the first year."
And then I'd highly recommend these two books for the first year:
The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night by Elizabeth Pantley
And Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron
Welcome to the Club!
Insights into nurturing the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual wellbeing of our children.
