You probably already know the typical postpartum essentials for new moms – maxi-pads, nursing bras, numbing spray, Tylenol, etc. These are all very important items for postpartum moms, but that’s not what this list is for.
There’s no doubt that this is the weirdest time in recent history to be pregnant. Typically, a baby shower would be high on the priority list for any pregnant mama, but in the age of social distancing, baby shower plans are all but non-existent.
But they don’t have to be – there are tons of creative ways to host a successful socially distanced baby shower, and give moms-to-be all the love and celebration they deserve.
These are definitely weird times we’re living in, but it’s not all bad. Because of social distancing, we’ve had to get creative in how we can celebrate our loved ones. As a result, one of my favorite things to come out of these past few weeks is the drive-by baby shower.
It’s very, very easy to lose hope when you’re battling infertility. Sometimes, you just need to take a break from reading statistics and TTC forums, and read some feel-good infertility quotes instead.
Is there any greater triumph as a parent, than discovering an activity that facilitates independent play for your toddlers? I think not.
I mean, it’s bad enough that I have to come up with meal ideas to feed these kids for every single meal of every single day, but I have to entertain them too?!
Apparently, yes, according to the toddler and the preschooler. And as much as I would love to just succumb to screen time all day every day, my mom-guilt just won’t allow me to.
