Over recent months it has become immensely apparent with the conversations I have had with some of my parenting friends that we are not alone in our confusion with the advice we are given.
From midwife to baby clinics we are fed mixed information and don’t even get me started on the internet.
One thing is for sure that as parents we all tend to second guess ourselves and even do that from one pregnancy to another.
All three of my pregnancies and subsequent babies have left me second guessing myself to a certain degree.
However having 3 babies over the last 16 years has allowed me to look back on my first experience and realise that doing what is right for you and your baby is the way any parent should go.
Pregnancies and babies don’t come with handbooks as they really are all very different and that should go for advice in my book.
Yes, by all means ask friends, and relatives and the health visitor or Midwife but unless you are after medical advice (which you should always follow) being a parent is all about finding what works for you.
My best friend Stacey and I often chat about if we knew then what we know now we would have done a whole heap of things differently ….
For me I am going to stick with what works well for us and that is using Huggies Newborn Wipes, which are Huggies very newest addition to the range to make sure Jacobs delicate skin is protected with these Parent friendly clinically tested natural wipes.
I am also going to stick to building in bonding into our normal everyday routine too. If nothing else in my parenting journey multi tasking and spending quality time with Jacob at every change time is going to be my long-term goal.
Oh and if you are looking for my parenting words of wisdom …
