Healthy Tips and Advice for New Moms Story

Becoming a mom is one of the most amazing and equally challenging things I’ve ever experienced. Here are 10 pieces of advice for new moms – based on what helped me when I first became a mom myself!

Mothering, historically, has been something that’s been passed down through generations, and new mothers were supported by large communities of women: their own mother, aunts, grandmothers.  Today, most moms don’t have that village to rely on.

Best Pieces of Advice for New Moms

– Be Kind to Yourself -Don’t try to do a ton of stuff every day. -Drink enough water / fluids. This is critical to keeping your energy up, and for any breastfeeding mom it’s super important for your milk supply! -Try to take a bath or a shower every day

-Eat Properly : This might sound like a no-brainer, but it is a huge challenge getting meals together while taking care of a little one by yourself. Make sure you don’t skip breakfast and take advantage of the naps during the day to prep your other meals.

Make time for Exercise such as Walking or Yoga

-If people are offering to do things for you: your laundry, making your meals, etc. Say yes! Take as much support as you can and ask for help when you need it. -Let go of ALL the expectations and just go with whatever was happening in front of me that day.
