Tips for New Parents

Becoming a parent is a wonderful-and often overwhelming!-experience. There’s so much to learn, and you’ll likely find yourself googling all kinds of things as you figure out how to take care of your little one. As you learn how to meet the needs of the newest member of your family, never hesitate to reach out to friends and family members to ask for help! The advice and experience of others who have taken care of babies before you can often be invaluable, especially for first-time parents.

I know how challenging it can be to enter the world of parenthood, which is why I’ve put together some resources and tips for first-time parents to help you out as you’re figuring out this crazy new world of being a mom or dad. I’ll continue to update this page as I add more helpful tips and tricks, so be sure to check back for more! And feel free to contact me if you’re interested in one of my newborn photo sessions. These precious moments with your newborn won’t last long, so be sure to capture those tiny fingers and toes before your little one grows!

Strategies for Sleep

One of the biggest battles for every new parent is getting their baby on a sleep schedule. While it will take time and patience (and lots of sleepless nights), there are some ways you can make sure your newborn learns how to sleep. Check out this helpful blog articles for some tips for new parents on how to encourage your little one to sleep, so you can get some much-needed rest as well!

Baby’s Developmental Milestones

Part of the joy of parenthood is watching your child grow and seeing how they change as they age. Believe it or not, babies change so fast, it can be hard to keep track! This simple list of developmental milestones can give you an idea of what skills your child should be learning throughout their first year. And as always, it’s important to talk to your child’s doctor to make sure their development is progressing well.

Understanding Your Baby’s Temperament

One of my favorite tips for new parents is the importance of understanding your baby’s unique temperament. Every baby is different in the way they express their needs and emotions and in how they react to the world around them. Some babies have a tendency to be louder and fussier, while others tend to be more easygoing. Understanding your new child’s temperament can help you better understand their needs and reactions, enabling you to meet your little one’s unique needs with ease!
