Becoming a mommy is not as easy as it may sound, but it is very rewarding to say the least. From the moment you first hold your baby in your arms it’s love at first sight. For most mothers, we played dress up with our dolls when we were younger or pretended to be the dolls mother, so in reality most of us have always dreamed of becoming a mother. Becoming a mother brings on many responsiblites not only for yourself, but for the well being of another human being.
The most important thing to remember is to take care of yourself first. You need to be healthy in order to properly care for your newborn baby. For some mothers they will have to return to work after the full six weeks of recovery. Shouldy you have the option staying at home with baby is best.
A newborn baby needs a lot of attention and no one can do that best other then mommy. Bring home baby might put an emotioal damper on your relationship with your spouse or significant other. With a newborn baby come many sleepless nights, and that can make for some grumpy people. Another thing to keep in mind is don’t get discouraged when it comes to holidays. Still plan your vacations as you normally would, but keep in mind that it will become a lot more difficult taking a vacaction and having a baby at the same time. You might want to consider waiting until baby is a bit older. Make preperations to be one step ahead of the game and prepare for delays, to ensure you enjoy your vacation.
