When you have just given birth to your baby, there are a few things you must take care of. You might be making quite a few new mom mistakes without your knowledge that are actually irking your family and friends. Here are a few mistakes you must avoid –

  • Crying when your baby cries – Babies keep crying. It’s fine really. You don’t have to cry each time your baby cries. I know your emotions are heightened right now, you are going through great hormonal changes and it makes you want to cry hard when you see your baby crying; but no. That is not really a good idea.
  • Being over possessive – Moms are generally possessive and its fine. But don’t be over possessive that makes others go ugh! Being territorial and possessive will only make you more stressed and you won’t get proper amount of rests. Don’t hold onto an idea that only you can take care of your baby and no one else can. That isn’t true.
  • Assumptions – There are a lot of assumptions you do when you are a new mom. Like why isn’t she eating, maybe because she is sick; maybe I am doing it wrong; maybe I should have done it that way or maybe she won’t like it? I mean c’mon! You cannot simply assume everything. Stop stressing over things because not everything is going to happen according to the schedule and time table. So cut yourself some slacks and breathe in and relax.
