“OMG, that’s the cutest baby I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait til I have a baby.”
“Look at all these baby clothes, my baby would be so cute.”
“Can I just keep him forever?”
” I haven’t slept in days, my baby won’t sleep.”
“I can’t get him to stop crying. I’ve fed, burped, changed, and given him food.”
Yeah, this after birth people. Not trying to scare you, well maybe just a little.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to tell you not to have a baby. Babies are literally a gift from god. They can change you life more than you think. I might have a couple of tips for the new moms and the future moms to come.
Do not have a baby unless you are prepared to give up that wonderful thing, we call sleep. When I was in college, I never thought I got enough time to rest or even sleep. But guess what I was wrong, I have never wanted that sleep back before than after having a baby.
Make sure if the baby is sleeping, you are sleeping. If you love your sleep be prepared to give it up for at least the next 18 years or just pray you get blessed with a child that loves sleep just as much as you.
During my pregnancy, I took upon myself to not watch birth videos or even here other people tell me how bad birth was. All women have a different pain tolerance and can handle more than the others. But we were made to push out these beautiful babies and bring them into this crazy world. I did not have an epidural at all and birth wasn’t that painful. If you choose to get one, GET ONE. If you choose not to, DON’T.
Don’t let birth stop you from having your own precious baby girl or boy.

Babies are EXPENSIVE. I would definitely start putting money away here and there. Babies need wipes, pacifiers, teething toys, bottles, clothes, snacks, and so much more. I wish I would have saved more money before he was born. But just make sure you put away anything even if it’s just a couple of quarters, you’ll appreciate it later.
P.S. Get a BOPPY, they are worth the money.

Get a Diaper Genie. At first, I thought why would I need a diaper genie. That’s probably the craziest thing I’ve ever said. Diaper genies are essential to life. It will save you when his/her diaper has had an explosion at 2 am in the morning. Plus, that dreadful walk down the the stairs and into the cold just to throw it away. It much easier to just step on the pedal and drop it in.
