Things no one tells #Momstobe

Its been 9 months of wait to see your baby cuddle in your arm, nurture the kiddo with your pure milk, play with baby’s tinkling eyes or just smile watch the baby grow up…you have waited for it, right from the day you got to know you were pregnant. However in this process, there are lot of things no parents, no inlaws, no experts, no doctors tell you.

Here is a list for all the #momstobe to refer to just to prepare and plan your baby birth in advanced
  1. Crying is the only emotion and communication form babies know. Turn a deaf hear to peers complaining your baby cries a lot or less. It varies from babies to babies
  2. Babies tend to loose 1kg weight after birth. Its normal as long as baby is consuming your or formula milk well
  3. You will take 10-15mins to go to bathroom specially when you have stitches because of the vaginal  delivery.
  4. Breastfeeding is a tough process..if you believe the baby will latch on you and get unlimited supply of milk, you are highly wrong. There could be delays or clogging at times which will keep your baby hungry and crying.
  5. You will take an hour or more to get your baby ready to visit a doctor which may be 2 blocks away from the house. Wonder why ?? When you are above to leave the house your baby will pee or poo or understanding the clothing requirements takes time – will they feel too hot or cold or sweater is needed or not etc etc …the list is endless
  6. You will find it difficult to understand why your baby is crying and may keep checking diaper or re-feed him/her
  7. You will not like your body..no its not because of the stretchmarks alone but also of the baby bump which will take time to shrink in.
  8. Your babies features/habits would be contemplated by the whole of universe ..trying to judge the baby’s gone on mom or dad. Well that’s not a problem but you may get too overwhelmed and would not want to hear the judgement based on your genes.
  9. Changes in babies skin, colour etc is to happen. Some babies have fragile skin or pigmented skin at birth which would fade away with time. Don’t let people remark affect you.
  10. Growth pattern of your baby is going to be different from other babies..so don’t compare as it may scare you or freak you out. Each baby has different speed of achieving the milestone.
Lastly, remember Motherhood is a special gift to mankind. Don’t get hard on yourself because people around say something which they feel is right. There will be good days and bad days; there will be right days and wrong days; there will be high days and lows days…but it is on you how you make this memorable experience of lifetime.
