14 Tips for New Moms

Since ancient times, fathers have taken part in discipline, but mothers have handled the daily tasks, hugs, and kisses. As society becomes more aware of child psychology, both mothers and fathers are encouraged to bond with their children equally, and to take care of the baby equally. Here we list 14 tips for new mom’s.

  1. You need to devote all of your attention to your baby when you are with him or her. When reading your paper or doing your exercises, do not handle the baby, feed it or change its diaper. Babies can sense when their caregivers are uninterested in them.
  2. Take the time to get to know your baby – let them smell you, hear your voice, laugh and feel your touch. Bathe and massage your baby to let her recognize and like your touch.
  3. From the moment your baby is born, read to him or her aloud. In time, your baby will look up to you for comfort because he or she will be comforted by your voice.
  4. When you are changing the baby’s diaper, place a rug on the floor. By doing this, you won’t have to worry about the baby falling off a table.
  5. Learn about all the illnesses, symptoms, and so on that affect babies. Find out when you need to get in touch with a pediatrician and what home remedies you can try first.
  6. Make sure your entire baby’s laundry is stored in a well-ventilated container. Keep clothes in a sealed hamper as they are susceptible to mildew.
  7. Buy a baby backpack that’s comfortable for both you and your little one. Having a backpack allows you to carry your baby hands-free and without any hassle.
  8. Do not wear fancy clothing. Instead, wear simple cotton clothes that are free of studs and decorations.
  9. When taking the baby outside, be sure to take an extra set of clothing for him or her. Why? Because you never know when you’ll need to change his clothing.
  10. Make sure your home is childproof before your child learns to crawl. If there are low-height electric outlets around you, close them and remove sharp and breakable objects from your home.
  11. Make sure all poisons are removed from the house, whether they are medicinal or otherwise. Store expensive fluids in a locked cabinet so babies can’t access them.
  12. The area under the sink should be kept clean; only pots and pans should be kept there.
  13. If there are any baby hazards in your home, such as nails, holes in the carpet, etc., crawl around the house on all fours.
  14. It’s important to listen to well-meaning advice, but you have to make your own decisions when it comes to your baby. It is always a good idea to consult a pediatrician for professional advice.
