Okay, so you have waited and prepared for you beautiful baby’s arrival. All the books and advice from friends will go out the window as soon as the baby cries. What do you do is what is going through your head. Don’t doubt yourself because you will get through this like everyone else. After a while, you will figure out your baby’s cries and what they need. Well, I have some parenting wisdom to share with you plus a cool product that will help ease the feeding stress.
#1: Don’t Panic
Easier to say than to do let me tell you BUT remember if you are stressed out your baby will feel that and become stressed too. Worrying about all the little things won’t do you or the baby any good. Keep it Calm! No need to panic when it comes to feeding because The BlueSmart mia, will help new parents track and analyze your baby’s feeding intake and consumption patterns.
How it works is the BlueSmart mia connects to Wi-Fi and allows multiple users to input feeding data on their smartphone via an easy-to-use app. There is also a journal feature on the app that enables parents and caregivers to chronicle baby’s feeding patterns and other milestones to share with family members and pediatricians. So if you are at work or away from the baby, you can check your app and see if the caregiver is feeding the baby the right amount and see the feeding progress. You can even share with Grandparents!
#2: It’s OKAY if baby cries
Now I’m not saying allow the baby to cry for hours, no! But if they are fed, the diaper is changed, and they are still crying, it is ok. Take a deep breath and know babies are meant to cry. You will learn their different cries and sometimes they just need to cry it out.
#3: Take Naps!
It’s perfectly fine to sleep when the baby sleeps. It might be the only time you can rest. So take advantage of that time. Don’t worry about the dishes or the phone calls you need to make. Lack of sleep is one the major issues with new parents. I didn’t listen to this advice with my first baby, and I was tired all the time. But that second child I slept when she did, and it did us both a lot of good!
#4: Play Music
Sounds weird I know, but don’t have the TV going all the time. Put on some soft calming music on while feeding and playing with the baby. I noticed such a difference when I did this with my kids. Plus they both love music so much now. Creating a calm atmosphere helps with tensions.
#5: Accept Help!
Someone needs to tell you…YOU ARE NOT SUPER MOM. You can’t do it all; this is a learning process. Yes, the house is a mess, and things are stacking up that need to be dealt with so when someone says can I help you…say YES. Let them know what you need; they wouldn’t ask if they didn’t mean it so let them do the dishes, hold the baby while you take a shower or make some phone calls. Don’t try to do this all on your own; help is needed.
Embracing the CHAOS is what you need to do during the first couple months and don’t have high expectations because plans go out the window with newborns and that is OK!!! I’m excited we have the opportunity to introduce more about the new product the BlueSmart mia to our readers.
