When raising your kids it is not that easy as you think; you must have thought to bring up your kid in one manner but it may not happen for some reasons. The whole process of bringing up kids is full of surprises and you would expect something but it may turn out to be different.
No matter how much you prepare yourself or read parenting guide, nothing can get you completely prepared for becoming a mom or dad. It’s full of surprises; try not to stress, instead get some time to relax.
First Few Months are Real Torture
There is no proper agenda or time table when a small baby sleeps or feels hungry! If one routine continues for one week, there could be a drastic change in next week. Baby’s sleep can be erratic and their cries can be disturbing. Moreover, the first few months are really tough for a mother; if it is the first time, then she may find breastfeeding very hard and painful. If you have peace of mind in the first few months, then you can survive anything in this world!
It is a nice feeling to become a parent, but, first few months could be really tough, if you have no one to support. You can’t sleep well as the baby can keep you awake throughout the night. Infants do not always sleep. During the first few days, they might sleep for 18-20 hours and then next week, they may sleep for just 10-15 hours and then for less than ten hours. Not all babies sleep at night times and some sleep throughout the day and play in the night, without knowing that you’re disturbed by their new behavior!
You Will Lose Sleep
Toddler and infant stages have sleep issues; you might have to get up once in every 2-3 hours to check your kid, whether it’s sleeping peacefully or whether it needs food. There could be major changes in timetable between you and your kid’s sleeping time. Once it becomes 2 or 3 years, you should think about schooling and other things. You will have difficult time in managing a proper sleep time. Do not begin a nighttime or sleep habit or else, it would continue until your kid reaches college!
