There is some debate among mothers about what is the best advice for easily raising their babies. Is it following the guidelines of a specific guru? Finding out what works by trial and error? Listening to friends and family? Following the latest hot advice?
Here’s what I consider the best approach for moms all over the world… learning from others.
I’m sure you are well aware that there are some universal keys to baby development. That is, babies all over the world develop according to the same principles. Fortunately, almost all of these development principles and how to handle them have at some point in time been recorded, reported or experienced.
The only thing that you need to do… is find this information… and then use it.
What follows is my suggested list of 3 free baby information resources which you can start using today for the best advice to easily raise your baby.
Frequently Asked Questions
Raising your baby easily and effortlessly begins with knowing the answers to the “common” questions. That is, there are a few problems almost all parents experience and want to know the answers to. The first approach is knowing the answers to these “common” difficulties. And then to avoid these pitfalls.
A quick and easy way of learning from others is to study the frequently asked questions asked by other parents.
** BabyZone is one such online site with content and resources covering the most important questions you may have. It’s an excellent destination for answers, timely suggestions, advice, lessons and tutorials on pregnancy, childbirth and parenting. access this great resource at http://www.babyzone.com
The second resource is to take part in some kind of open discussion. Rather than struggling to find out what works and what not, learn from others. Somewhere someone has already experienced and solved the same problem as you. And is willing to share the experience. Forums allow you to ask questions, express your opinion, and learn from others.
** About.com has a number of forums broken down by due date months, breastfeeding, caesareans, baby naming, pregnancy loss and more. You can enter as a guest and browse the previous posts, but you must register before posting or answering a message that’s already there. Registering is quick, simple, and free at http://pregnancy.about.com
“Looking Over The Shoulder”
One thing many parents find difficult is knowing how to do the things they read or hear. Despite getting all the information, some of us simply learn better and faster by seeing rather than by reading. That’s where local guidance centres are invaluable. It’s a great resource for sharing information and experiences many parents often overlook. But obviously, it’s not meant to substitute consultations with medical practitioners.
** The Expectant Mother’s Guide provides pregnancy, childbirth, and baby-related information for parents in specific metropolitan areas. Much of the available articles and resources are specific to a particular city or region. Consult http://www.expectantmothersguide.com for a list of countries and cities covered and served.
In order to consistently make the best decisions raising your baby, several things need to be considered. You want the information most suited to your situation. And you want to get it quickly and easily. These 3 free resources will surely help any parent to achieve that goal almost every time.
