A Few Tips for New Parents

Here are a few things to remember if you are welcoming a new little one into your home:

1. Get help. Babies are dependent on adults for everything! It is impossible for one or two people to meet their 24/7 needs.

2. Eat and sleep. This is hard to do but getting enough food and rest is important. Babies benefit from moms and dads who are not too hungry or exhausted.

3. Trust yourself!! Even though people have lots of valuable opinions about newborns and you are probably second guessing yourself no one knows your baby better than you. Try out ideas that make sense to you and then see how things go.

4. Hang in there. Juggling all the aspects of a baby’s new life can be challenging. Remember that life will look completely different in a month or two.
