Ten Top Baby Advice Tips
“Following the birth of a new baby, parents are often faced with the task of putting into practice all the useful advice and tips they have either read or have been given by friends and family. ”
What is the best ‘baby advice’ and what is most helpful? Who better to ask than parents themselves? Ten parents shared their top tips with us. These tips describe some of the interesting ways in which they began to work together even during pregnancy, to bring something different to their experience of having a baby:
Five top baby advice tips from fathers:
1. Work on your upper body strength as babies grow really quickly.
2. Develop a birth plan with your partner to make sure both of you understand what is expected to happen and when.
3. Develop a post-birth plan with your partner. If your baby is due to be born in a hospital find out from the hospital if you need to bring the baby home in a car seat, (we were surprised by this one) if not what are the hospital requirements?
4. Always change the baby from the side to avoid being peed on.
5. Have something to do when your wife is resting or in hospital after the birth, have a list of people to call to give the good news.
Five top baby advice tips from mothers:
1. Whilst pregnant, talk to other mums and expectant mums.
2. If possible give yourselves at least two weeks after the birth to spend alone together with your new baby.
3. Give up on everything in the first 6 weeks of the baby’s life and cuddle a lot.
4. See beyond the birth, what support networks do you have, are you a member of an NCT class. Especially important if you have no immediate family around you can trust.
5. Enjoy it! Don’t be afraid to ask for help. You can only do what you can do (That might be three).
Finally, my own last bit of baby advice. Remember, you are the expert on your body, your baby and your relationship. Observe your babies; be alert to their ‘baby clues’ as they try to tell you what they need. Babies try to let us know if they are tired, need a cuddle or are hungry. If any thing doesn’t feel right to you, go to the doctor or speak to your health visitor. It is much better to share your feelings than worry alone. Take time to adjust. A baby alters everything. Give yourself time to get to know your baby and understand the changes they bring to your relationship.
Having a baby may be the hardest thing you will ever have to do but is also the most rewarding, so hang on in there and be patient with yourself and each other.
So there you have the top ten baby advice tips from real parents, all fairly practical and reasonable, as you might expect from parents.
