Do not compare yourself with other moms

We often see young mothers strolling with strollers. Women share useful information and advice with each other. Of course, there is nothing wrong with this and getting advice from the person who has already come across the problem you are interested in is very useful. However, do not do everything possible to match up with someone. All people are different and everyone has their own approach to education.

Trust your instincts

Surely you have already learned a lot of useful tips from books on child care, where, for example, it is recommended not to take the child in his arms, if he cried so as not to spoil him. However, if you feel that your soul is out of place, when the child cries, then give up all these recommendations and follow your instincts.

Do not buy too many things

Undoubtedly, it's very pleasant to be engaged in shopping, especially when you choose tiny sliders, ryoshonki and hats. However, mothers with experience say that a huge amount of things for a newborn will only settle in closets, because a child grows quickly, and many things do not even have time to try on it. Therefore, be prudent, do not buy children's things with suitcases.

Keep calm

Calm mother - calm baby. Less nervous, because the child is fine and upset with you. Take care of your child's nerves and your own.

Do not forget about your husband

If before the spouse got all your attention and love, then with the birth of the child, many women sharply change the landmark and switch to the child. Try not to infringe your husband, because this can negatively affect your relationship. Also young moms advise not to forget about yourself. Give time to your appearance, because you are not only a caring mother, but also a beautiful young woman.

Enjoy the time

Enjoy the minutes spent with the children, after all the time will come when they will grow up, and you again want to feel those moments of happiness when the children were very crumbs.

Do not try to be a supermam

Do not ask yourself too much, because you are not iron. Raising children is a long and thorny road and if you do not have time, the child will not love you because of this less.

Patience and again patience

Sometimes it is difficult to be patient, especially if you are a young mother. Take care of your nerves and become less nervous, because there are no desperate situations, and experience comes with time.


The best thing parents can do to educate their child is to read. Do not just buy children's books with beautiful pictures, but show him an interesting world of fairy tales, slowly instilling a love for literature.
