unnamed

Hey girls, Thanks for all the love. We are all doing well. I’m healing up slowly but surely. I’ve got quite the apropos guest post for you all today. Hope you enjoy. XO, Dani

As a new mother, your life changes forever. From the moment you hold your baby, you know that your life has become something greater than itself. Your life is now about caring for the needs of another human being. Adjusting to the full-time care of another person can be joyful, but it can also be tiring and burdensome at times. Here are some tips that can help you adjust to motherhood with ease.

1. Use your support system.

When you first begin taking care of a child, you can feel isolated at times. You may feel as though you are alone in the process of raising a child. This is completely normal, and you should realize this. Some new moms let this feeling of isolation lead to other feelings, such as a feeling of guilt. Instead of allowing your feelings to overwhelm you, take some time to talk about them with your support system. Your family and friends are here to support you in your time of need. While they may not always be available to baby-sit, they are available to lend a listening ear.

2. Try to stick to a routine.

Sticking to a routine can help you find normalcy in the process of raising a child. When you feel like your world is growing more chaotic by the day, you can find a sense of peace in having an established routine. Even if this routine simply features grabbing a cup of Starbucks coffee, showering every evening or doing your makeup, these are just a few ways you can maintain a sense of normalcy in the early stages of motherhood.

3. Take care of yourself.

It is vital that you take care of yourself and prevent illness. You now have a child who depends on you for care, love and attention. If you are sick or not feeling your best, then you won’t be able to give your child the care that he or she needs. Even taking care of your skin is essential when you are a new mother. Using a natural treatment oil for Eczema can help you prevent dryness, itchiness and redness within your skin. You can make using a natural H-Eczema formula a part of your daily morning routine to ensure that you feel your best every day.

4. Embrace the chaos of caring for a child.

Raising a newborn baby can be chaos at times. There will be days when you feel like you do not have enough sleep and like you have been pushed to the limit. While your life is changed forever with a child, you should also realize that there will be peaceful times ahead. Your life will not always be chaotic, and it is just part of the universal experience that all new moms have.

5. Pack an “emergency bag” of care items in your car.

Having an “emergency bag” with diapers, crackers, a first aid kit, extra clothing and other essentials can help you feel less nervous when you travel in a car with your newborn. An emergency bag will make you feel prepared to handle any circumstance that comes your way.

These tips can help you to easily adjust to becoming a new mother. You can feel at peace in knowing that you have a support system and ways to now manage the process of raising a child.

#1 is the reason I haven't adopted kids yet. I don't have the support system here that I would have if I lived in Los Angeles. A great support system is crucial.

Taking care of yourself is so important now that a new one is in the picture! I remember when my son was born and I said, I need to do this to be better for us. It has helped so much. Also, embracing the chaos is so true. Personally, I have a hard time dealing with the noise and chaos, I remind myself that it's not always going to be like that.

I definitely had to learn to embrace the chaos. Before kids, I was of those people enjoyed having my quiet, organization and space. But I've learned through motherhood that those moments don't last always. It's a part of the journey.
