How To Survive Your Newborn’s First Few Months


Newborns! Adorable squished up little things that don’t come with an instruction manual! Being a first-time parent is no easy job. The first few months are the hardest ones because the baby cries all the time, and the parents are getting used to the new addition to the family.

There are so many things to learn in a short period of time, and we are going to make the learning curve easier. Let’s get started with some of these tips!


This is vital for the growth of your baby. You can do this naturally or pumping out the milk with a device so it can be stored.

“If you’d like to feed your baby with breast milk even when you’re not around, having a quality milk pumper is a must,” is what states. This is so true, especially if you’re a working mom.

Breastfeeding is very painful in the first weeks, but you have to think about the benefits for your baby and get through it. It does get better after the fourth week, so hang in there!

Breastfeeding is necessary, even though it can be painful at first

Say Goodbye to Sleeping

Just because your baby had a good night of sleep doesn’t mean that they’re going to be good sleepers, don’t let this fool you! Usually, babies wake up in the middle of the night crying, so you have to be prepared.

Discuss with your partner about following a schedule, this will make things a lot easier for both of you. This way, you can take turns, and at least one of you will be well-rested the next day.

Don’t Brag about your Child on Facebook

Don’t be that annoying parent that posts the whole day about their baby! We understand that you’re excited, but it can upset other people, and there’s a good reason for this.

Maybe some other mom sees this post, and they could feel bad about herself or what’s going on with her life. So keep those humblebrags to yourself.

Stay away from social media and posting baby pics

Stop Worrying about the Baby Acne

Do babies get acne? Well, yes they do! But don’t worry, it does go away quickly. If your baby gets this, don’t panic, it is a natural part of their bodies and most likely caused by the hormones left over from pregnancy. We recommend patting it with a warm cloth – don’t get any treatment, it isn’t necessary.

Newborn’s Photoshoot

It’s recommended that you schedule the photoshoot for the first two weeks. This is the right time for making those cute positions, and your money won’t be wasted.

Don’t make the mistake of doing the photoshoot a few weeks after, it can get messy really fast! The baby will be uncomfortable and more likely to cry during the shoot, so start preparing for the photos as soon as possible.

Final Thoughts

Having a baby is a blessing, and you should be thankful every day for that. But, it can get a little frustrating at times. Don’t panic over every single thing, and stop trusting what everyone says on the internet! Some people overreact for little things, so always trust your doctor and your instincts.
