There are few things that can match the life changing experience that is childbirth. The whirlwind of feelings that the expecting parents experience include emotions of all kinds. They experience joy, fear, happiness and many more emotions but, above all else, they experience love. This is not just any kind of love. A love of a parent for his or her child is something that is unsurpassed by anything else in the world and is the source from which all other emotions come from.
However, it is quite common for new parents to experience fear and doubt. Questions like “Are we ready for this?” or “Are we going to manage everything?” come to mind and some even go as far as to question whether they have “what it takes to be a parent”. You do, you have what it takes, trust me, babies do amazing things for your productivity.
This video can help you put some things into perspective. The thing that makes it different from tons of other baby related advice you can find online is the fact that it comes from real parents. These people give you insights into things they picked up by being parents and not from books, online blogs or articles which can very much confuse you and get you riled up over nothing.
The same goes for the advice you are going to get from people around you. Some will be impressed with what you are doing while others will be shocked with “what you are doing to your child”, so keep in mind that no two families are the same in this world and no two couples in the world do things the same way. Some parents will use software to follow their kids’ activity through their phones, others will not be aware where their kids are 10 hours at a time and the fact is, both of these could be terrible decisions and perfect decisions. Finding what works for you is crucial and this is just one of the great pieces of advice given here.
The thing you should always remember, through all the spilled food, worrying, bumps and who knows what else, is that it is absolutely worth it! Be grateful for the blessing that you got and always cherish the memories.
