Couples can prepare for good parenting by knowing what to expect, making plans for their babys care and upbringing, and having realistic expectations. Parenting is not an easy job, yet it is the most important job in the world. Expect it to be challenging, and more than that; expect it to be the most rewarding and enjoyable experience of your life!
You work all day and come home and you're exhausted, but your kids will be waiting breathlessly for you to walk through the door to play. Put on a big happy smile so that they know that you are super thrilled to see them. Nothing makes a kid light up like seeing a big grin on dad's face--if they see you are happy, they will be happy.
This is an adorable ceramic keepsake gift set for mom and dad to keep and remember all the important milestones as the infant grows. Includes a first tooth keepsake box, first haircut keepsake and an authenic piggy bank. This gift can keep all the precious memories of those magical early years.
Exercise is one of the best natural antidepressants on the market. Not only will exercise help you get your pre-baby body back, but it will boost your energy, release stress, and increase endorphins (the "feel good" hormones) in your brain. Take your baby for brisk walks. Join a health club that has a kid center. Do yoga with your baby.
Take baby along during a normal nap time. If you have one of the infant carrier car seats, this is a great option. It works best in the first 3 to 6 months when your baby is still napping frequently. Try it a couple of times and see how it works. You might even be able to take in a movie if you have a good little sleeper.
Don't feel bad if there are times that the new parents want to do things their way. Remember back when you had your first little one. Sometimes we have to learn through our little mistakes--which aren't really mistakes, but life lessons.
