Having a Baby: 12 Things You Must Know

By M. W. Byrne

Here’s a few things you should know before having a baby.

Make Yourself Happy

Happy children most commonly come from happy environments.

1

Kiss Your Sleep Goodbye

They don’t care about your work schedule, your sleep schedule, or your anything schedule. Your life is now attending to their needs.

2

Ignore Your Responsibilities

The only way to get any rest is to sleep when the baby sleeps. Don’t try to clean, or do laundry, or take dance lessons, or cook.

3

Take Advice With a Grain of Salt

People will tell you things, and you can try them or not, but usually you’re going to need to experiment like mad, make it up as you go, and hope for the best.

4

Babies Bounce Back

Babies only look fragile. The fact is that you’re more prone to injury than they are.

5

Hold Onto Your Memories
