Our babies’ development is of paramount importance. We make it a point to find ways in aiding them with their progress. Reading aloud bedtime stories to our babies is just one of those ways.
Baby bath time is our most favorite time of day. It is one of the many bonding moments I share with my little ones. Just to warn you though, not all babies love bath time. Your baby might squirm and scream at first, but soon he will love it too with the right products and technique.
I wish I had the survival guide to manage the brutal first weeks with a newborn when I had my first child. Yes, I spent most of my waking hours researching about fetal development, pregnancy, labor and delivery, and I even signed up to practically every pregnancy website I stumbled upon. However, nothing is as helpful when you talk to people that have done motherhood firsthand. Motherhood is hard and it is even harder when you’re doing it for the first time.
You do all you can to perfect everything for your children’s sake. In spite your best efforts, you still fail. That is because no one is ever perfect. Not you. Not me. Not anyone. As moms, we love our children more than anything (even more than we love ourselves). We will do everything to keep them healthy and happy. However, we are only human (Though we think that we are superwomen at times!) and we make mistakes. Those mistakes don’t make us less of the striving parents that we are.
We always hear from our doctors that a fever is not a bad thing. It is just one sign that tells us the body is “waging a war against infection”. That doesn’t make it any better at all. As mothers, that statement always fails to give us comfort. Thus, I put together an article that tells us everything we need to know about it.
On my dad’s side of the family, we have a tradition. Growing up, I told myself that I would diligently follow that tradition to make the elders in my family happy. As soon as I knew I was pregnant, I immediately tracked the last letter used for naming the family’s newborn babies.
