Before I had my first baby, I thought I was really ready for the whole motherhood gig. I’d done so much research on how to get pregnant, knew everything that should happen during each week of pregnancy, and felt like I had pretty good expectations for how childbirth was supposed to go. But let’s be honest here. No first time mom knows how childbirth should go, and no childbirth is the same, so even my third childbirth was a little bit of a surprise.
The bottom line was I had done a lot of homework. I was ready to have a baby and felt confident about becoming a mom. In all reality, carrying the baby and becoming a mom was really the easy part. It was the part after the baby got here that left my mind spinning with questions.
When will I hear him laugh for the first time?
When should he start crawling?
And the question always looming over me was “How much do I feed him?”
There were just so many questions and not enough hours in the day! And to make matters worse, I was overwhelmed with all of the information out there when I just needed an answer to a simple question. Where was the “Baby’s First Year” timeline from Similac when I needed it most? New mothers with the same questions I had now have a valuable resource available at their fingertips.
