Save Yourself The Stress! The Things No Parent-To-Be Thinks About Until It’s Too Late

Monday, January 27, 2020

When you've fallen pregnant you know that there are things to prepare for and it's usually the big things like sorting their bedroom and preparing the birthing plan. But there are many things that we can almost forget to do. While our mind can be whizzing a mile a minute we've also got to remember that we can feel so dazed during the first trimester that there are so many things that we don't prepare for until it's too late! Here are a few things to think about that aren’t so obvious.

The Middle Name(s)
You might have argued until you're blue in the face about their first name. But it's the middle names that you might not have given as much thought to. While it's cliched that a middle name is not necessarily something that we think about (or even like) if you are looking for a name that sounds right, you've got to think about the middle names too. Because we are focused so much on the first name, the middle name may become an afterthought. But if you want a really strong name you have got to focus on all of the names.

The Food You're Going To Eat After The Baby Is Born
There comes a time where you go through a nesting period where you clean the entire property from top to bottom. And while you can't wait to meet this little person what happens, a couple of weeks in, is that you soon realize the magnitude of the task. Even going to the bathroom becomes a challenge! And if you want to put the baby down while you make some food for yourself, that ain't gonna happen! The best advice we can give you is to batch cook things. Think of meals that you can cook and portion up. Put them all in the freezer and when the baby comes along you don't have to think about it. Put the meal in the microwave and you can eat with one hand!

Install The Car Seat
Car seats may look like they slot in easily but they are more complex than level 100 on Tetris! While there's a lot of places that offer car seat installation checks and people may even think that you're being silly for installing the car seat months before the baby comes along, it's better to be safe than sorry! When a little baby is screaming you're going to need to put the car seat in 2.5 seconds flat! Install the car seat and make sure that you know exactly what to do, especially when you haven't slept the night before!

These are just three of many things that you need to think about before the baby comes along. When the baby arrives your life gets turned upside down, you don't know what is going on, and on top of everything, there won't be much of an opportunity to sleep. If you can start to make things easier before the baby comes along, do it!
