Motherhood: What I Wish I Knew In The Early Days…. #ComfortsForBaby

by Carrie with Children with comments closed

Motherhood. That’s a role that was totally new to me when Maggie was born back in 2008. It was an amazing feeling to know that I was now a mother, but in reality – it was also a little scary too! I was in charge of a newborn – forever!

BlogFrog Comforts for Baby I was so caught up in doing things “the right way” that sometimes I just made things harder on myself. Looking back, here are some things I wish I had known – At times it was overwhelming, but here are things I learned all on my own.

  • Invest in a good rocking chair! I can’t tell you how many nights I slept in that rocking chair. Besides naps, I got in the routine of also feeding my girls in the rocking chair too. That’s a lot of rocking – it’s important to have somewhere nice and cozy to sit.
  • No two babies are the same! There is no mold when it comes to babies – each has their own personality (yes, even as a newborn) and they know what works and doesn’t work. Just because something works for one child, doesn’t mean it will work for another. My two girls were night and day when it came to their tendencies.
  • Baby Gear – Use what works for you! Diapers, baby formula, bottles, sippy cups – there are so many accessories that come along with having a baby. I learned quickly that moms are passionate about the brands they use and what the recommend. Don’t be afraid to take suggestions, but also don’t be afraid to try something new. Also, buy a baby thermometer ahead of time. I’ll never forget my poor hubby making a middle of the night trip to the store to get one for Maggie.

The most important thing about being a mom in the early days – don’t be afraid to ask for help! There are so many friends and family members that want to help… if you need something – ask them!

As an experienced and savvy mom, I’ve learned to juggle multiple things at once, and do it well!
