When you are experiencing motherhood, it is impossible not to think about different details, worry about each care and try to plan each step until the baby arrives and thus leave everything ready to receive it. But what about when the baby’s first days at home will be born? How will the family adapt? How to deal with the new routine and how to experience this moment with maximum tranquility?
Even though everything has been carefully planned, we only know what will happen and what it will be like when the time comes. After all, we don’t know whether the baby will be restless or restless. If you already have other children, how the brothers will react to the new family member and how you will face the new routine that with a newborn baby at home, you end up doubling your work. All of this in addition to physical tiredness. But let’s start at the beginning! When arriving from the maternity ward, the first thing that happens is visits, which are not always desired and expected . Since some moms feel too exhausted and debilitated to receive friends and family, even in the early days. But some of them are inevitable, as is the case with the family, especially when they are very close.
Everyone is looking forward to meeting the new family member and welcoming the little one. At that time, we must not forget to leave the bathroom available for these visits so that they can be hand sanitized before picking up the baby. If any of them forget this procedure, it is worth alerting them after all, it is the baby’s health that is at stake. In the case of cold visits or any type of viral disease, contact with the baby is not recommended, preferably only visit when fully recovered. The newborn baby still has very low immunity and contact with sick people, even if it is a simple flu for us, can be very risky for them.
Spending this part of visits, it’s time to face the new daily routine, after all, you have a newborn baby who needs care 24 hours a day . Between feedings, diaper changes, bathing and hygiene care, he has to deal with the rest of the house and other obligations. Unless you have someone to help you in the baby’s first days at home, which is a great relief. But if not, you will have to manage your time very well to be able to reconcile all your obligations and care, especially if you have other children.
Usually siblings end up being jealous with the arrival of the new member and with the excess of care and attention, not only from the parents but also from the whole family and friends. And this is a difficult task to be able to circumvent and minimize jealousy, since the newborn really requires a lot of care and comprehensive care. The best tactic to decrease the chances of jealousy among older siblings is to make them participate in every detail and every care of the baby’s routine. Letting them help makes them feel useful and responsible for the care of this new life, as well as feeling extremely important for that.
Mama X Woman – After Childbirth
The more help Mom has, be it from dad, grandmothers, older children she will always be welcome. In the first days of the baby, it is not only difficult to adapt to the new routine, such as the woman’s recovery. After spending nine months generating, gaining weight, supporting a heavier weight than normal, besides swelling, nausea and all the changes in the body that a pregnancy brings to the woman, also needs care.
When they forget about themselves and focus only on the care of the baby, with the passing of the days they end up feeling ugly, sloppy and find themselves walking around the house in their pajamas , disheveled and often without even brushing their teeth. All of this goes hand in hand with physical tiredness and the pressure of daily obligations. Before, I wouldn’t even go to the bakery without combing my hair, now I receive visitors the way I woke up.
We women have to learn to reconcile our time not only with the care of the home and children, but with our appearance as well. Learn to divide your time and guarantee at least a few minutes of your day to get dressed, take care and feel alive . Be sure, the woman and mother who feels good about her self-esteem today has a better relationship and coexistence with her family and makes everything flow better, after all you are happy with yourself. Ask daddy for help when you get home from work, and take the opportunity to get your nails done, fix your hair or maybe take a walk to lose even more the pounds gained during pregnancy? Being a mother is a wonderful act and being a good mother and woman with life is even better !!
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
