Parenthood is such a rewarding journey and the moment you hold your little one is always filled with lots of love, joy and hope. Of course, you will feel all this because you’re holding a tiny baby who isn’t just the future of your family, but the whole world too.
The phase leading up to the D-day, to-be parents endure mixed feelings of hopeful expectation and nervousness in wanting to make sure everything is all right. Especially during this uncertain time, here’s how you welcome your little one into a space filled with immense positivity, hope and comfort.
Baby-Proof: While at time most of your baby supplies might not be available, go the DIY route. Prop up some extra pillows around your baby’s crib, block sharp edges with cloth sheets or layers of bubble wrap
Stay in Touch: Keeping in touch with loved ones regularly and making more time for family moments with your newborn are a few ways new parents can stay calm and positive during this unprecedented time
Stay Updated: Stay connected, updated and engaged with guidelines laid out by health care bodies and your community so that you are always prepared when your little one arrives and can take the right precautions
Practice Good Hygiene: Sanitizing your home regularly, practicing good hand hygiene, cleaning high-touch surfaces in your home and regularly cleaning your baby’s toys with warm water are a few ways to reduce worry and infection too
You Matter Too: Take some quiet time during the day while your baby is asleep to unwind, practice a hobby, or just connect with your partner
