Publisher's Summary

Why trusting your natural parenting instinct could harm your baby.

From the beginning of human existence and hundreds of years forward, people have been able to successfully care for their babies without the help of countless parenting books or quick searches on Google. What has changed since then that has made us chronic worriers, unable to trust our innate abilities?

Society.

We feel the pressure of our fast-paced world closing in on us, wanting to deliver the high expectations we set for ourselves as a result. This causes us stress, fear, and worry, so much to the point where it clouds our own judgment. Although there’s nothing that can be done about how quickly modern life evolves, you can ease your troubles and worries by doing what’s best for you in times of expecting a little one.

Fill your head with the essential knowledge to simplify the process and take the guesswork out of parenthood. In Smooth Transition to Parenthood for First-Time Mothers and Fathers, you will discover:

  • The changes you can expect both mentally and physically before and after the baby is born, yet how you can adjust to them accordingly without compromising your relationship 
  • The key aspect to keep in mind before returning to work, especially if time management is a major concern of yours 
  • Steps to utilize the best postnatal exercises to keep your body fit, in shape, and back to how it used to be before pregnancy 
  • The number one mistake mothers make when it comes to nutrition that only ends up delaying the recovery process and what you should be focusing on, instead
  • Ways to lose the baby weight naturally yet effectively and make sure it stays off in the long run 
  • The top factors to consider before deciding whether or not (or when) to have a second child, allowing you to avoid running into hardships further down the line 
  • Steps to rebuild intimacy with your partner once the baby is born and see past any barriers that may be causing tension in the relationship
  • And much more...

You’re not alone. Nearly all first-time parents have endless worries and questions before, during, and after birth. The difference, however, between stressful parenthood and one where you can actually take a moment to recollect your thoughts, is the quality of information and advice you receive.

Although you may feel overwhelmed or as if you won’t be a good parent, it’s important to relax and view everything as a learning process.

Parenting isn’t about being perfect, but rather it’s about exploring a new world and getting comfortable with the incredible changes that coincide with it, both inside and out. Nothing compares to the feeling you get when you hold your son or daughter for the first time and look into their eyes. In that moment, all you want to do is give them the world.

Stop wasting your energy on worries and start fueling your baby with the love and nurturing they need to grow into happy, healthy, confident children.

NICE BOOK :)

My wife and I would listen to this together every day. It is a nice way to keep up with what is going on day-by-day. If you are looking for something with a lot of medical detail, this is not the book for you.

Not really informative

Most of the book is informations you most probably already know. Very few new things for you as a first time to be parent. There are a lot of more important and practical things to know about.
Put your time for another book!
