As a new, first time mama there were five tips that I wish that I had known before. This can be such an exciting yet uncertain time and I am excited to share them with you here today! If you are pregnant with your first baby, these are a few things that I can pass on to you now as a mama of three! The love and joy that you are about to experience is unexplainable… you will for the first time experience an amount of love for another person that is so absolutely incredible, congrats!
All of the unsolicited advice doesn’t stop once the baby is born. Just be confident that you are the mama and that you know best! Shrug it off and take everything with a grain of salt.
There are things on your list that you might not actually need (despite what everyone says). Splurge more on a few fun outfits and a few great blankets!
It’s perfectly normal and perfectly fine if you are a bit uneasy sharing your baby at first! This is all so new and you have to figure out what you feel comfortable with along the way. Don’t let anyone rush you!
It’s going to be okay. All those new mama worries and thoughts will slow and you will settle into this new, beautiful role!
I knew that my life would forever change… I just didn’t realize the magnitude of that beforehand. Your life will forever change. The way you love, the way you feel, the way you live. You are in for a beautiful ride!
