This new life has arrived and it suddenly occurs you that you will need to take real care. Baby is home with you and you are in charge.
Having your first baby is one of the most awe-inspiring and exciting events you will ever experience. It is also one of the scariest. It all felt so exciting when you were pregnant, but suddenly after the labour it becomes all too real. Baby care is a twenty-four hours seven days a week job, and you are in charge.
Knowing what to do as a new parent is the hardest. The most important thing is you feel that you want to do the best. First begin by reading and listening to information. Ask other mothers to answer your worries and concerns and research all the information you need.
Once you have information, look at how you were brought up. Ask your mother to tell you what you were like as a baby, but listen to how she parented rather than what she did. This will give you an idea of what your own parenting style will be.
After you have done that work out what your philosophy fits best for you. Do you need the regulation of routine or do you think you want the baby to set the pace?
Write down how you see how things will work, and how you think you will manage any little hiccup like a baby who struggles to feed, or doesn’t sleep. The key is not to make this your plan no matter what, but to give yourself an idea of how you want things to work.
After the baby has arrived of course all the nest intentions may go out the window. But that is the secret of real care. Baby steps along the path to parenthood.
