Your Get Ready Guide, Mama
Take it all in, mama. Blink and your baby will be a teenager, yelling at you while they dye their hair black and blast music that can only be described as a banshee getting into a fight with a megaphone. This is the time to learn about your baby and watch them grow. This is the time to see a beautiful human being develop right before your very eyes. They say the children are our future, but in reality, it’s their mothers. We’re the ones who shape our children’s minds. We’re the ones who care for them and love them unconditionally even though they’ve just thrown their spoon on the floor for the umpteenth time or pulled the dog’s tail even though you explicitly told them to stop it.
We’ve been there and we’re here to share. Whether you realize it or not, you are a superhero. You may be tired. You may be covered in baby puke. But mama, you’re a pro. We’re just here to steer you in the right direction from the moment you bring baby home from the hospital until they leave the nest. Motherhood is tough, but you, mama, are tougher.
Month-To-Month Baby Guides
This section is all about life with baby – or babies, we see you mothers of twins! You’ll find guides to let you know what to expect after you bring your bundle of joy home. We’ll answer questions you didn’t even know you had like, how much should a two-month old eat? We’ll cover mastitis, milestones and meconium. We’ll touch on sleep schedules and scheduling me time. If it happens to mom and baby, we’ve written a guide for it.
