Must read for all first time parents

Trust yourself:

You know more than you think you do:

You want to be the best parent you can be but it`s not clear what`s best. Everywhere you turn there are experts telling you what to do. The problem is, they often don’t agree with each other. The world is different from how it was 20 years ago, and the old answers might not work anymore. We were brought up on traditional Indian diet whereas now you cannot get away from cosmopolitan culture and multiple cuisines available. Now more and more nuclear families are coming up, so grandparental guidance is not there.

Don`t take too seriously all that the neighbors or well wishers say. Don`t be overawed by what experts say. Don`t be afraid to trust your own common sense. Bringing up your child won`t be a complicated job if you take it easy and trust your instincts. (Remember baby is a part of you only). The natural loving care that parents give their children is a hundred times more important than their knowing how to make a diaper fit tightly or just when to introduce solid foods. Every time you pick your baby up- even if you do it little awkwardly at first- and change baby`s cloths, bathe ,feed ,smile , baby is getting the feeling that he/she belongs to you and that you belong to them.

The more people have studied different methods of bringing up children, the more they have come to the conclusion that what good mothers and fathers instinctively fee like doing for their babies is usually the best.

So better to relax and make a few mistakes than to try too hard to be perfect.

Enjoy your parenthood. This time is not going to come back. Upbringing of a child is most pleasurable job and spending quality time with your child is important.
