Well,week three just started and I have already learnt a superb lesson today. This has come over relaizations along the past week but I thought it best to list these out for new moms or my preggy buddies here.
1. Don't panic about buying bay stuff earlier during pregnancy. For one, most Indian regional cultures don't allow and it's useless arguing with logic with family. For the second reason, I feel once you've delivered and you are settled Up in the following week, the best hub is online. I have got EVERYTHING online. Amazon global and Indian stores and as over the moon.
2. Just keep basic nappies, baby cloths and bedding plus few Kaam Chalao cotton jhabalas ready. If you are using old clothes for first ten days or whatever, don't argue again. Be smart. wash them all and keep them ready. On the way back from Hospi ask hubby to get new stuff nd take the money from your mom dad or whoever else!!; That way you have your new few and old few. Both egos settled.
3. Get a good post partum care and paedritician certified guidebook. Babychakra is our Bible but just in case the Wi-Fi is down and you have a memory lapse,; a good old book will be your saviour.; I am reading 0-2, BABY AND YOU. And completely floored. Not coz it has it unique info but coz it is uniquely chaptered.
4. Give your baby time.; Tahts it. be prepped for fights with hubby, late nights,; frustration; and the wish to not stay up but ultimately look at your baby crying back and you will realize that the baby didn't ask for creation. You created the miracle. That will pull you up and back. #babychakramoms #babychakrafamily #kolkatamoms #beingamom #mommylife #newborn
