>I was talking to one of the new moms that just came back from maternity leave this week about baby stuff she informed me of a few things I didnt know… and thought I would share…
-if you put a lot of alcohol on the umbilical cord it dries it up and falls off quicker. supposedly the hospital sends you home with alcohol pads that dont have much and dont seem to do the job as well. You are to douse the alcohol on it every other diaper until it comes off
-you dont have to have a pediatrician before the baby comes just know what office you want to take care of the baby. They will ask you this information when you leave the hospital.
-the baby swing we got seems to be very popular and I was looking through the new moms pictures and she had the exact same swing. She said she loves it and it was the only way that their little girl slept.
-she also stated that breasftfeeding was so much harder than she had ever imagined and a pump helped a lot.
-she had a c-section and said it wasnt nearly as bad as she thought it was going to be but not being able to take a shower for 24 hrs was just pure torture.
thats about it or all that was important. If you are a mom and have some tips/tricks you wish you would have known I would love to hear them.
