Before the new baby is born, you really do not have a clue that how challenging it can be. After four children she knew better as it is a full-time job looking after the baby.
Let’s have some of our great tips, tricks and advice that you can implement right now!
Prioritize the newborn
It is really incredible to see how babies grow. The newborn will be recognizable after six months, so enjoy every moment with her. It is a steep learning curve when having the first baby and you need to focus a lot on becoming the best parent for your child. By prioritizing the newborn, you will nurture a more content baby and you will feel great about it too!
Having an idea of how things are going to manage as the newborn has finally arrived, things might not work according to plan. All babies have a different approach and take things in a different way. You need to get yourself relaxed at a certain time as the routine of the newborn will change and keep on changing.
Learn about their needs
The first few months will be all about learning what the newborn needs and wants. If the baby is upset, you need to check whether it is tired or hungry, too cold or too hot, the dirty nap or simply afraid of the surrounding. This will make your baby so much more understandable when you learn certain behavioural patterns.
Try to relax, it’s much easier
Some people say that the first two months of the newborn will be the hardest. After three to four months things start to get a little comfort as you now understand and respond accordingly. After six months, things will be more comfortable as in the first few weeks, I was totally blind how to get my baby sleep, and that challenge could take hours trying to settle the baby. Once you learn how to do it, life will become much easier for you and the baby!
Reach out to other mums
Try to connect with other new mothers as they can provide a huge wealth of tips and practical information. Linking with new mums will also help you to prevent the feeling isolation if you are alone all the time with the baby.

Manage the baby’s sleep
The first few months are being hard as my baby nap was only 30 minutes, which was not long at all. But after my holiday I learned that she needs her tummy to be full before they go to sleep. Now things are working well as after a huge supply of milk, she sleeps for an hour and sometimes two hours even. But you need to manage the time as a little miscalculation and the nap time is over, then she will be overtired and will not sleep until you recharge their batteries.
