Thinking of new things to blog about… 💭 Dads give me some feedback on what your jitters were/are on becoming a new parent? Or parenting after baby #1.  Moms what are your thoughts on what dads were concerned about? Leave your thoughts below!

Here are some things I have gathered thus far:

  1. Money

Bugs and Easter Peeps~

Late night, eating |blue peeps|🐥 and reading about bugs!☺️💤

Lately SuperJack has been staying up later. I don’t really force him to go to bed at night. One because I know he takes long naps at daycare and two because he really doesn’t give me a hard time in the mornings when it comes to getting up. Well, if he doesn’t like what he’s wearing then he will! :/ But here are a few things I do to get him relaxed.

  • Bath (in baby lavender)
  • Lavender baby lotion/ massage
  • I’m bad sometimes I will even spray the bed and room with lavender linen spray!
  • Eat if he’s still hungry or a lite snack (not these sugary peeps we were eating last night lol)
  • Brush teeth
  • Either I READ to him or he reads to me (which he loves)
  • Potty
  • PRAY
  • and a little Basketball on TV will knock him right out!….along with lots of HUGS and KISSES. From my room or the living room we will put him in bed with relaxing music playing.

See its real simple! No need for me to fuss and fight with him as long as he’s relaxed then he’s resting. Plus it gives us time to bond with him instead of coming home doing our routines and then sending him off to bed. When you stick to a schedule like that you don’t always have time for loving parts. Again this isn’t your traditional “get in the bed” routine but its what works for us! Oh! One confession if he does get up in the middle of the night we do turn on a 15 minute learning show like “Super Why” or “Peppa Pig”. Why not something he’s not interested in?? Because SuperJack will just get up change it to what he likes anyway lol.

Epidural? Lets Pass Time!

Remember #UNO?? I love to use these cards as a distraction when my clients are trying to pass time. Usually labor progresses then STOPS! Don’t you hate that? Or maybe you get the epidural and now we just “wait”! But no worries your doula will find creative things for you to do so that you stay motivated! Plus #daddieslike to bet me in card games😂 #doula#hireOne #births #labor #delivery#epidural

Ask your Doula about Acupressure!

#BumpBabyBliss #Acupressure is one of my many techniques to help relax mommy. This is a good relaxing technique for those that get the epidural. Good way to relax your upper body and mind. I can even teach dads how to do it as well! #Doula #getOne #birth#labor #healthymommy #healthybaby#parenting
