Advice for New Moms
Essential Advice for New Moms from Those Who Have Been There
Congratulations on the new addition to your family! Having a baby is always a life-changing event. However, having your first baby is a special event. No matter how much support and good-natured advice you get, there's always some confusion for new mothers. Here are some pieces of advice to help new moms navigate this stage of their lives.
Take care of yourself first. This sounds counterintuitive. However, your baby needs you to be physically, mentally, and emotionally strong. Make your own health a high priority to ensure you have the energy to properly care for the baby.
Ask for help. You shouldn't have to do it all alone. Ask your spouse, friends, and family members to help with baby duties when you need a rest.
Appreciate where you are now. With babies, things change quickly. Through the challenges, keep in mind how short this season truly is and that one day you may miss the things that are currently causing you grief.
