First Words: The First Five Months Of A New Mom


First Words: The First Five Months Of a New Mom

As a mother, I’m often worried about the first few days of my baby’s life when she utters first words. I dread the toddler years and wonder if I’ll be able to handle it or if I should just let her go into the house-opossum birth instead. I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if there is something “wrong” with me.

So I want to share with you the things I’ve learned to enjoy during the first year of my baby’s life and the great things it brings. This baby is different from most of my friends’ babies. While I like all babies, her name can put me to sleep! I still find myself watching other babies play, but when my little one has a diaper change I literally forget about everything else and just can’t get enough of her cute baby bouncy bottoms.

The first thing I love about this baby is that I get to do all the cute little things that my friends get to do – tummy rub, breastfeed, sleep with them, sleep next to them, etc. Now I know what you’re thinking: you could ask mom to do all those things, but I’d probably get out more diapers!

As a new mom, you are so exhausted and busy – all you can think about is baby! Yes, this takes away time from me and makes me tired. But as I watch her little arms go to sleep in her sling, I suddenly feel lighter. I relax.

Breastfeeding is really easy for me. We have tried to bottle feeding and that didn’t work for me at all. So breastfeeding is really the only way for me to feed my baby.

I’d say I enjoy this more than I did breastfeed my daughter because she would tire me out. Now, when my baby gets hungry I just pick up a t-shirt and nap for a while. That just shows how much better she is when she’s breastfeeding.

Let’s take a moment to appreciate this time that we’re having with our little ones. So, let’s see what we’ve learned about these few precious months and how we spend them. Let’s also help the mom who just found out she’s expecting. We don’t have to be parents overnight – it can be a very rewarding and wonderful experience.

As a new mom, I can remember the early years of my twins when we used to push my little brother around the room. We loved that because it helped him become more aware of where he was and how to use his body. And we loved being able to come home from school and sit him down for his first sleepover.

As the kids grew older, we loved to sneak into the neighbor’s house to feed our baby’s friends. We’d hear noises and run out to see who had been feeding their friends. It was so much fun watching them all laugh as the neighborhood mom rushes back to start feeding the babies again.

As we got older, we shared a house with two brothers. Both of us had a car and decided that sharing with one brother would mean we could drive to the other’s house and bring him back to ours. This was a lot of fun for us. But it made the neighbors angry because they didn’t want two children running around in their neighborhood.

We were pretty much restricted to two rooms for the next several years until we’d started to baby rouse our son and he started to roll over in his crib. We both came home happy every day because we couldn’t help but notice how cute and cuddly he was.

As you can see, I think we are lucky to have a child in our lives! We learn so much about baby care and raising children that we wish we could share with our own children. As a mom, it makes me feel good to know that the people I’m surrounded by who love my babies to death don’t have to feel left out. If you’re afraid you’re going to be a new mom, then keep reading.
