Are You Ready For Your Baby’s Arrival?
No matter how much you prepare for the little one to arrive, it's only natural that you feel enough has not been done. Here are a few tips to help you
1. Keep The Hospital Kit Ready
Though you have been given your due date, it is almost never that the baby arrives on the exact same date. So it is better that you have your hospital kit ready well in advance. While you will be able to get most of your supplies from Morph Maternity, you can buy period panties for postpartum bleeding here.
2. Get Ready For Nursing
It's a well-established fact that nursing is good for both you and your baby, providing numerous benefits that extend beyond basic nutrition. The act of breastfeeding creates a special bond between mother and child, fostering emotional connection and a sense of security for the baby. Additionally, breast milk contains essential antibodies and nutrients that support your baby's immune system, helping to protect them against illnesses and allergies.

3. Make Your Home Baby Ready
It's better that you have your house cleaned up before the baby arrives, especially in the room where the baby is going to stay. Avoid too many visitors in the first few weeks after the baby is born as babies are more prone to infections when they are newborns.

4. Organize Help
As little as they are, babies are not easy to work with. There is constantly changing, feeding, burping and general caring to be done. A few days after the baby is born, you will be in postpartum recovery yourself. If your mother, mother-in-law, or any other family member offers help, take it.
5. Prepare Yourself Mentally
No matter how much you think you are ready for the little one, there are going to be surprised. Both pleasant and tiring ones. So if you want to have that candlelight dinner, the best time is now. If you want to catch up on lots of sleep, the time is now. And while you do that, just remember it's a matter of time before you and your baby will find your own little schedule that you will find comfort with.
And don’t forget to enjoy your time with your little one. They grow up sooner than you want them to.
