Top Tips for New Parents

Having a baby is one of the most exciting times of your life, but it’s okay to admit that it can also feel a little overwhelming. There is so much to learn about taking care of your newborn, and the amount of contradictory information out there is enough to confuse anyone.

It’s okay to ask for help. Taking care of your baby is a rewarding job, but it can be tiring, and even stressful. It isn’t down to you and you alone to shoulder all the questions new parenthood can throw at you.

Take time to take care of yourself and you’ll be better equipped to deal with the night and day job of looking after your little one. Here are some of our best tips to make sure you’re not running on empty.

Ask Your Health Visitor for Information on Local Parent Groups

If anyone’s going to know about useful groups and clubs that’ll help you get out of the house and into a room full of supportive people who know exactly what you’re going through, it’s your health visitor.

Of course, Facebook and google are also your friends here, but locally-run groups organised by volunteers might not have a social media presence.

Mums’ and parents’ groups are great for socialising, but they’re also invaluable for the level of community support they offer. Experienced parents mingle with first-timers, and often the organisers are experienced parents or even doctors, nurses, midwives or teachers themselves. They’re a perfect place to find out all the answers you need — and to find out that you’re not alone.

Taking Care of Your Health

It’s much harder to be resilient when you’re run down. It can be difficult to be healthy if your baby is struggling to sleep at night or if you’re finding becoming a parent difficult. It’s totally understandable, and nothing to be ashamed about.

First of all, if you’re feeling overwhelmed, speak to your doctor or health visitor. It’s a myth that you can be penalised or criticised for seeking support as a new mum or dad. Don’t suffer in silence.

We also suggest taking vitamin supplements, especially if you are breastfeeding, to replenish the nutrients your body has used taking care of your baby. Also, these new mum supplements are especially formulated to benefit your skin, hair and nails.

Talking to Your Friends and Loved Ones

It can be hard to talk about things that are bothering you, but your friends, family and loved ones will want to know how you really feel so they can do everything they can to help you.

Whether you need a bit more help with around the house stuff like the washing and cleaning, or you just need a couple of hours of normality with a cup of tea, some cake and a gossip, reaching out will do you the world of good.

And don’t worry about not having a clean house when anyone comes over. You just created a whole baby! That’s enough hard work for the time being!

Until next time...
