Difficulties Faced by a New Mom

There are many questions usually running in the mind of a new mom. The most common worries are:

  1. Why is the infant crying?
  2. Why he/she is not sleeping?
  3. Why do not I understand what the baby wants to say?
  4. What to eat and what not to eat?

These are all common problems, and you do not need to worry about this. First of all, thank God for his gift, and nurture your child with love and positive thoughts.

Let Us Understand Few Facts and Worries:

A Few Essential Things About Weaning Period:

Weaning period is when the mother decreases breastfeeding and increases other food. In the weaning period, do not stop all feeding at a time. Skip breastfeeding gradually. For example, if you are feeding the baby four times a day, then reduce it to three times for a few days, and then reduce again to two times a day, then once a day and then stop. This way, you have the following health benefits.

  1. No milk congestion.
  2. No trouble for the kid to stop feeding.
  3. The kid will easily forget breastfeeding.
  4. The kid will not get irritated.
  5. No breast heaviness.

Be positive in the weaning period. Do not think when he will stop and do not make limitations to stop breastfeeding. Up to 1 and a half years, you can feed the baby. After this age, breastfeeding is not helpful for the baby to fill up the tummy. They need food for their hunger.

To conclude, spend time as much as you can with the baby. Choose motherhood over your career. It will create the best memories in your kid's mind. Your career will not be ruined if you are with your kid at home for a few of his initial years. Only in the initial years, the kid needs their mom. Once they grow up, they will do their work on their own. Give priority to your kid in compared to other household work. Few compromises of mom will help to keep the baby and mommy healthy. So enjoy the healthy motherhood with some lifestyle changes.
