“It’s a good thing you are so cute!”
This is a phrase many parents often think of during the challenging toddler years as they find themselves cleaning up messes, potty training, listening to shouts of “no!” with every suggestion, and watching their child throw yet another tantrum.
At first, we can’t wait for kids to speak, encouraging their first words. We delight in every word – right up until they learn the word “no”, and it seems to be all they will say.
Kids hear the word “no” often in their lives, and they learn it is a word that carries a lot of power. It has the potential to rock their world!
You just brought your little bundle of joy home and would like to show them off to friends and family, but not everyone lives close enough to visit. The perfect solution is having newborn photos taken so you can share them on social media and even send some to your loved ones, but how do you capture those precious day-to-day moments at home? Don’t worry, there are many tips and tricks for taking your own newborn photos (that are simple enough to pull off even in your sleep-deprived state).
Congratulations on your new baby! As a new parent, we always want to make sure our baby is the safest. We want to ensure we are doing everything right. It is often overwhelming to know how to keep our baby warm, but not too warm – and how to know what’s the safest way to do this, especially when we hear about all the rules and recommendations around sleep, swaddles, blankets, car seats, snowsuits, temperatures, and safety!
