Banish Baby Boredom
For a lot of people, bearing a child completes the purpose of being a woman, as being a mother, although truly tiring a lot of times, can be the best part of one’s life, especially when shared with your partner whom you will be building your family with. For those who are completely new to motherhood, bearing and rearing their first child can be quite tiring as they adjust to the daily tasks and routines involved in the process, but for women who have been working for years before childbirth, it can be really boring during the stage of infancy when babies sleep all the time or when they breastfeed all day.
During the infancy period, where babies sleep at least 12 hours a day and spend their waking hours either playing, crying, or being fed, most new moms will find themselves either tired or bored but without much to do as they are tied to child care 24/7 especially when they do not have a nanny or caregiver to assist them with the tasks involve in the process. Most boredom occurs with breastfeeding mothers, especially when they are used to being productive instead of just sitting idly while days go by.
Since child care often involves staying at home, beating boredom will require some of your favorite things like books, DVDs, a laptop, hobby items especially if you are into crafts, and other personal items that can keep you preoccupied without having to move much from your position. Another good thing to do is to sleep with your baby when you can so you do not feel as tired once they are up at night again.
On days you feel you have the energy for it, taking your child for a walk with you outdoors for a few hours particularly after sunrise will be a good way to while away time and catch some fresh air and more energy from the warm sunlight. For this, however, you will require any of the best travel system strollers available, one that can preferably double as a stroller and car seat so you can conveniently travel with your baby anywhere you want without having to transfer them from one seat to another or carry an extra utility just to carry your baby around.
Being a first time mom involves mountains of responsibilities that can really be overwhelming and burdensome in the beginning, but at the end of each long day, every thing becomes worth it, especially once you start to see your child respond to you with affection that will easily melt your worries and exhaustion away.
