Preparing for your ba's arrival
Having a baby is surely one of the most thrilling - and scariest - things that happens in the life of a young couple. You know it's going to totally change your life; you just don't realise quite how much until your baby arrives! Here are some things you can do now to prepare for the big day.
Get plenty of rest You are unlikely to get much sleep the first few days / weeks / months of your baby's life, and will soon become accustomed to snatching a few minutes whenever you can. So until then, make the most of the peace and quiet to get as much rest as you can.
Enjoy your partner's company Likewise, once your baby arrives, she's going to demand most if not all of your energy, and for a while everything else will become secondary. So invest in your relationship with your partner now: go out for a meal or catch a movie, go for a walk together, make love, spend time with your friends.
Candidate names You'll likely be doing this already, but prepare a list of candidate names. Even if you're convinced it's going to be a boy, think about some girl's names just in case, and vice versa. You also need to think about the thorny issue of whether you're going to saddle her with Great Aunt Gertrude's middle name or not, and whatever you decide,alsmede een naar je zelf te beschermen, make sure you manage the grandparents' expectations in this regard.
Equipment Babies need a lot of stuff, it's a fact. But as a first-time parent you're unlikely to know what's important and what you can do without. My advice is to stock up on the obvious things like nappies, baby wipes (surely one of the best materials ever invented!),maid services, a few changes of baby clothes, feeding bottles, and some infant formula if you're not planning to breast feed. Apart from that,change a lot for us in our lives too., get a crib, car seat and baby bath, then see what you need once baby arrives. It's quite likely you'll be blessed / saddled with some hand-me-down stuff from friends and relatives, which could save you quite a bit of money.
Attend an ante-natal class You'd be well advised to attend an ante-natal class to learn a bit about how to care for an infant. This should cover practical issues like how to bath your baby and change nappies, and also discuss the merits of bottle versus breast feeding, various sleep positions,con el altar dentro de la cultura y la atm贸sfera, etc. Apart from the educational aspect, these groups also often become informal support networks that continue to meet up once the babies have been born, and eventually evolve into playgroups for the youngsters as they grow up.
Read and discuss Books, television and the internet also offer a wealth of information about all aspects of infant and childcare which can help you to know what to expect and how to deal with various situations that may arise. You don't have to become Doctor Spock or anything, but would be well advised to learn as much as you can before the big day, rather than fumble along cluelessly when you're sleep deprived after your baby is born.
