Part 1. Psychal preparation to become a daddy or mommy
The psychal preparation is the most important part for a new parent.
Before we do the mental preparation, we need know the causes why there will be the mental problems. The main reasons are generally: economic pressure, lack of perspective, excessively worrying. Once we overcome these objections, we can finish this vital role change.
As a young parent, a very vital factor we may consider is money. Yes, to raise a child requires significant costs, especially nowadays. From food, education, and clothes, we aspire for our children to live better lives than we did.
But we suggest you look at things the other way round. You didn't live like rich modern kids when younger, but you are still healthy, live relatively well, and your childhood was still happy.
Even a poor family can raise a healthy, optimistic child. To raise a baby successfully requires two essentials: company and love.
Lack of perspective
This is the common reason for most young people. Many of us still think like a child, being spoiled with materialism, we want to live our stylish life, and do not want to be changed by external factors. In short, we focus on ourselves.
But once we have a baby, we have to change, it's paradoxical with our former philosophy. To break this matter, we need to consider very seriously "am I ready for becoming a daddy / mommy?" beforehand. And once we make the decision to have a baby, we need to seriously (and honestly) consider our readiness to become a parent – to become more responsible, to regard our baby as a priceless treasure and a new family member.
Even the baby doesn't birth yet, people are already thinking about the future - safety issues (food and milk), health issue (illness), or even crime-related problems (kidnap). Also, the kid's growth may be the other topic people may worry about.
Come on, stop suffering from imaginary fears, the world is rarely that dangerous. Stay positive, teach your kid in small steps, live the best you can, and let nature take its course.
Part 2. Essentials for any baby
Material preparation is also essential. If you don't prepare the stuff a baby may use, you must be in a muddle and very tired when the baby comes. To prepare in advance is particularly important.
This is the baby essentials list:
Baby swaddling cloth
This is an essential stuff a baby needs when he / she is born. At that moment, a cloth is not suitable for the little cutie, to wrap he / her with a soft and skin-friendly swaddling cloth to keep he / her warm. If in the cold environment, to wrap one more infant blanket would be better.
An infant baby cannot control their toilet needs, and adults may not notice those signal the baby transmits. For insurance purpose, to wear the baby a diaper is a good way. The parents can make the diaper by some soft cloth or buy the ready-made diapers from a store.
Sure the breast milk is the best, however, to backup a feeding-bottle is also needed. When the mommy is not by the baby's side, daddy can use the feeding bottle to feed the baby milk. Also, it's good for delivering the water.
The baby will reflexively bite or suck, this is natural. A silicone pacifier is perfect to control crying and diverting their attention. It's also indispensable for dads who are taking care of their baby alone.
When to feed a baby, the baby may spits the food which may dirt the his cloth or splash the food everywhere. Wearing him / her a baby bib, it can keep the baby (and you) clean and also prevent additional washing or housework tasks.
Baby bath towel
The babies must use their own personal bath towel and the parents should not to share theirs because of the health care factor. The towel material is better to be soft and skin-friendly.
Baby carriage (stroller/pram)
The essential equipment for going out. When you go out with your baby, to hold him / her in the arms is sweet, but you cannot act freely and once the time is long you must be tired. To prepare a baby carriage is necessary for dealing with these situations or a baby waist stool if you think a stroller/pram is too big and heavy.
Always have a thermometer at home, not only for baby, but for all the family members. For medical emergencies like a cold or fever, you can check the baby's temperature accurately and safely.
Do you get all the tips here? To be a parent is not easy, but I am sure you can make it because of love. It's the nature of human beings. Don't worry too much, once you are a daddy or mommy, the practice will make you perfect. Believe in yourself, and don't forget you also have parents and friends who can help.
