As a new parent, you navigate this gauntlet of stuff with the baby. What should you do? What should you not do? You tend to seek perfectionism in your parenting journey, but parenting is a learning process no matter how many kids you have.
In this episode, Jeanette Cole joins us to explore parenting tips for new parents. Jeanette is a certified Doula, breastfeeding counselor, and Yoga Instructor. She is also the host of “Mama Says,” a podcast for new parents, seasoned parents, and moms in general, focusing on linking the past with the present. In this session, Jeanette shares her experience as a doula, why you need one, a new mom’s experience, top challenges new parents face, and maintaining healthy development in your child. Besides, she dives deep into the importance of good nutrition practices and not being too hard on yourself.
● Always take care of yourself. So you can take care of the baby. If you can’t take care of yourself, you’ll have a tough time with the baby. You can’t pour from an empty cup.
● As a parent, you are always learning. There is no right way to do anything. Although people will give you advice, you are the only one who understands your child the best.
● Don’t take it personally when a kid refuses your food despite how well you’ve made it. It could be a texture thing, or they might like that type of food, but only in a certain way.
