the new mommy guide

Throughout your pregnancy you’ve been focusing on the delivery. But as soon as the baby is born, you realise that it is just the beginning. You know it’s going to be hard work, but getting your head around the reality of being responsible for a tiny human being 24 hours a day is no mean feat. Inspite of the challenges associated with mommyhood, it is one of the most rewarding journeys you’ll find yourself on.

1 As a general rule, newborns need a diaper change every now and then, throughout the day and night. However, don’t wait for the diaper to be “full” or “heavy”.

Enough is always said about the mother and baby bond. Enough is always said about a mother’s nurturing and instinctive response to the child’s needs. Enough is always said about how mothers always tend to put their children first. What is not talked about enough is how critical the role of a father is, in this journey.
