As soon as I fell pregnant, I began probing every parent I knew for answers to my burning questions about what was coming.
There were the classics like, “what if I lose myself to motherhood?” and “what the heck is a milestone?” and then some wild ones like, “what if my kid and I have nothing to talk about?"
As my baby grew, so did that daunting stack of questions. And all I seemed to be getting from parents were little remarks to the tune of "you just wait" or "say goodbye to sleep!"
And while it’s true, nothing can fully prepare you for parenthood, there are still so many things I wish I had known before waddling into that delivery room…
1. You will worry about your baby, constantly. But here’s what can help.
The worry, oh my word, the worry!
It is intense, yes, but it gets better with time I can promise you that. During those newborn months you are adapting to so many changes, so many new responsibilities and demands – it’s a hurricane of emotion and sleep deprivation, but it doesn’t last.
So, try to breathe.
Do it now: big breath in, aaaand all the way out. Beautiful.
Okay, now we can talk about something that can offer your weary self some extra peace of mind. Owlet have three popular baby monitoring products for parents, two of which happen to come in a handy duo set. They're a global leader in infant data and monitoring, and it blows me away just how innovative their products are.
