What The First Months Of Your Baby's Life Look Like

There is no doubt that with the arrival of a new baby things will change most especially in the life-style of the new parents. Every new baby brings joy and happiness to the home. However, a lot of new parents are highly uninformed and maybe, to some, unprepared about what to expect from the new baby. Please know this; in this article we will always refer to the baby as a she. There is no hidden meaning to this. It is just our choice of word.

The truth is; whether we admit to it or not a new baby demands a lot of hardwork. With the arrival of a new baby comes the increase in house chores which can really drive the parents crazy- most especially the mother, but you can still employ the services of a nanny or a helping hand. Above all, the greatest job of the new parents is to cuddle and always keep your eyes on your baby. Babies are wonderfully engineered to give out information whenever they are uncomfortable to their parents. That is why as a parent you should always be close enough to your baby so that you can interpret the baby's language or body signs.

Do you know that your baby can hear right from birth. Also, studies have proven that new babies can see right from birth, but they can not focus until they are two (2) weeks old. However, When they get to four (4) weeks old they can effectively focus on bright lights and large objects. As a new or experienced parent you will observe that in the first month of your baby's life her eyes do cross frequently just relax it is no cause for alarm.

  3. The first few months are so difficult but so rewarding and amazing at the same time. There is nothing like it.
    As an interesting side note, my last baby would turn to look at the tv in my hospital room and track what was on it. I was shocked. He did it repeatedly. He has been different and amazing in many ways so it doesn't surprise me as much now. He also did not have the gel put in his eyes at birth. And I think that allowed him to focus better because his eyes were not goopy.
