10 things to do with your baby before its too late ~β±πŸ€”πŸ”Ÿ

  1. Give them lots of kisses and cuddles, trust me you’ll be glad you did. 
  2. Take lots of photos especially of the early days, it’ll be nice to look over them and see just how much they’ve changed over the months/years.
  3. Create a memory box of there first outfit, name tags, umbilical cord clip (you’ll appreciate it later on)
  4. SWADDLE THEM! believe me when I say that because Logan slept so much better and longer whilst being swaddled. 😴
  5. Sing / talk to your baby because there brains are like sponges and there always taking stuff in, i was teaching logan animal sounds when he was 5 days old πŸ¦πŸ™ˆπŸΆπŸ€πŸ±
  6. Have a routine, babies love routines because it helps them settle and more importantly helps them sleep better, I’ll make a separate post about routines and what I do with logan.
  7. Make baby hand and foot prints with paint and put them on a canvas or on your bathroom wall, wherever you want really 
  8. Put them in there own cot as soon as possible, logan was out of the moses basket at 9 weeks old, now he loves his cot!
  9. Have lazy days, because when they start running around you’ll probably have no time to sit down 
  10. And last but not least just take each day as it comes and know that the tough days don’t last forever and you’ll be glad you kept hold of there teeny tiny baby hands that little bit longer at bedtime.


Hope you all enjoyed this post.

My experience – being a new mummy πŸ‘ͺπŸ‘ΆπŸ’™

If you had told me that I would be a mum at 23 I would not  have believed you, because I wasn’t very maternal and didn’t think about having babies and all that responsibility. I would have told you that I am waiting until I get married and have a good job! 

But since I met my fiance who I’ve been with for over 4 years now, the way I viewed the world and everything around me changed, i matured not only mentally but emotionally, i realised that he’s the man I want to spend the rest of my life with and who I want to have children with.

—————————-

Getting pregnant and carrying logan for 9 months definitely was the most daunting/scariest and exciting time of my life no doubt but let me tell you the last few days of my pregnancy dragged..I thought I was going to to go into labour on my due date and everything be very organised and perfect…oh no this little monkey decided he’d hold on for 5 more days,but the wait was definitely worth it, I mean he’s perfect! 


The moment Logan was placed on my chest I was in awe, exhausted, relieved it was as if all my worries all my anxiety had been lifted because when I saw his little squished face everything was perfect and nothing else mattered but him!

—————————-

Sleep when baby sleeps! 

Yeah that’s all very well but when all you seem to want to do is stare at them….constantly wandering just how you managed to squeeze that baby out of your lady garden.😹 

I’ll be honest I hardly slept at the hospital just because of all the adrenaline and all theses different thoughts racing through your mind, like how am I going to cope, what if I can’t stop him crying, omg we got to Home tomorrow, what do I do. Yeah the first few days will be caos and you probably won’t get much sleep either unless your blessed with an angel child who sleeps through from day 1 (do they actually exist?).

But don’t worry it will get easier and you’ll be wandering where those days /weeks went since bringing them home.

When logan first smiled, that was one of my happiest moments because well it just was just how can you not look at that face and not smile back πŸ‘ΆπŸ˜Š. This boy seriously makes my days just that much brighter and everyday I’m blessed with sleepy cuddles (cherish those by the way) 

Logan’s now 5 months old and I just cannot believe how fast these months have gone, he’s got 2 bottom teeth, he can sit up for quite a long time, he can roll front to back and back to front, he’s also pretty strong on his feet.

All I’m saying is don’t take the early days for granted, you’ll be wishing you had your newborn back when they start walking and drawing paw patrol dogs all over your new walls in crayon. πŸ™€

That’s all for now, keep a look out for my next post on this blog.
