Having a new baby is not only a joyous time, but also a stressful time. Being responsible for a life that is completely dependent on you for survival can have you questioning every move and decision you make. Of course you want your child to grow up into a loving, happy, and successful adult, but how? The answer…listen to your inner voice and trust your parenting instincts.
Even early on you will know what is appropriate for your child. Trust your gut that if it doesn’t feel right, then it probably isn’t. Remember, you are your child’s primary caregiver and know your baby better than anyone else in the world. While well-meaning friends, family, and even healthcare professionals may have a thorough knowledge about babies in general, they don’t know your baby with her unique behaviors and temperament. While they may be giving great advice or recommendations, it may not be necessarily right for your family dynamic.
