10 things you should know about baby that no one ever told you

10 Things you should know about babies without reading numbers of books.

So, you have conscientiously attended childbirth classes, read all the books about baby care and even practiced breastfeeding on a doll.

But, are these activities enough to prepare you for the first days of parenting when your baby is no longer quiet and undemanding “growth” in your belly?

The simplest answer is “no”. The reality is often much better or much worse than expected and in most cases, it is good and bad at the same time.

No one can be prepared for a lack of sleep and hormonal changes that we can expect in the first weeks. This is a unique and difficult combination.

You might think that other moms easily cope with it, but do not be fooled - they are all acting. Motherhood can be daunting, but that feeling is temporary.

It is amazing how quickly you can learn to trust your instincts. The following is a list of things that you cannot find in the guides and classes.

Even visiting a bathroom is difficult after childbirth

There is nothing shameful about asking someone to help you going to the bathroom in this period. You are still weak and facing hormonal changes, which often lead to passing out. So, use all the help you can get even in these intimate moments.

The moment you hold your baby for the first time might be a little bit chaotic

    We have all seen the scenes in the movies where the mother holds her baby smiling and a pleasant music starts in the background.

    But, the truth is that in most cases you will experience some pain, the doctors will still examine you and chances are that you won’t remember much about this moment. Don’t worry, you’ll spend a lot of time with your baby later.

    Breastfeeding is not an easy task

      While it is true that you can learn more about proper breastfeeding it is nearly impossible to avoid the pain during the first couple of days.

      It is not uncommon to witness bleeding in this area and feel strong pain. The good news is that you will get used to it fast.

      Crying is not something unusual

        As previously mentioned, you will witness rapid changes in the level of different hormones and as a result of this change you will experience sudden bursts of crying.

        This is especially true for the fourth day postpartum.

        Babies love to sleep, but not all the time

        Many new mothers are worried because their babies don't sleep regularly or sleep less than other babies.

        The fact is that different babies have different sleep patterns and your task is to provide them the best terms to have a sleep.

        It is not your fault if your baby can't fall asleep fast and wakes up often.

        Avoid wearing clothes (other than pajamas) in the first two weeks

        There is nothing wrong if you stay in your pajamas in this period even if some close friends visit your home.

        This outfit will make you feel more comfortable and you will clean them from all the stains much easier.

        Join a support group

        There are many different support groups like hospital new mom or neighborhood groups, which consist of new moms.

        It is much easier to talk to someone who is actually going through the same things as you. You will also learn some new tricks too.

        Be confident at what you do

        Remember that there are no strict rules when it comes to parenting and how to take care of a baby.

        Of course, you can listen to other people’s advice, but you should never let someone say that you don’t know what’s best for your baby.

        Take some rest

        Remember that you don’t have to be together with your baby 24/7. It is a good idea to ask your friends to take care of your baby for 15-30 minutes while you relax in the bathtub.

        Don’t forget to take photos

        Use your camera to take photos of yourself and your baby. You will be surprised how times flies when you have to take care of your baby.
