If you are starting your journey into parenthood, there will be ample free advice given to you because people love sharing their stories of past experiences in child rearing.Well, just to help you settle your anxiety down a little bit, here is what every parent should know (but nobody tells you).
Nothing has changed – parenting is still just as hard now as it was when you were a child. Since there are no hard and fast rules on how to take care of your child, you should make sure that you follow the hard and fast rules of being a parent, but this means taking care of yourself by making sure you get enough rest and have healthy eating habits.By knowing what is considered to be normal, you will not have unrealistic expectations for your child. Not only will you get help and support from the staff, but you may also find some great friends while attending the classes.
But to help you through this, remember that it’s only temporary and the months where you’re awakened several times every night are but a brief instant in what will be decades of pleasure you get from you child. You will ask yourself if you can give that baby everything he/she needs. Just know that the answer is yes.Of course you can give that child everything he/she needs because all the baby needs is your love and caring and the fact that you’re worrying about whether you’re good enough is proof that you have enough love and caring for the child.While it’s never enjoyable to mop-up throw-up off the floor in the middle of the night, it won’t have you gagging every other second.So don’t be too afraid of handling your baby and don’t freak out about every little cough or sneeze. You will no longer be able to go anywhere without it taking you twenty minutes to get ready.
It has been proven through testing and observation of top-notch scientists that SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) can be avoided by making your child sleep on their back, but you’ve also heard from other important people in your life, such as your mother or best friend, that having the baby sleep on its side or stomach is best for the child.Only you know what’s for your baby, you are the one who cares for him/her all day long, who knows his/her likes and dislikes.If it is your first child then expect a lot more because the advertising sharks will be after you, you will just become their prey.Only you can create a unique parenting plan for your child so make whatever changes you need to all the advice you here, and do what is best for your child.
