In light of my recent pregnancy announcement, P&G has been kind enough to offer up a baby & new Mom essentials prize pack for me to giveaway to one of my lucky readers!
Speaking from my experience of being a Mom and also now an expectant Mom, I think it is crucial to not only celebrate the little miracle that you are bringing or have already brought into the world, but it isalso important to remember to put yourself first.
Finding the “me” in motherhood is something that is often brushed off or put on the back burner. There is nothing wrong with that. As new Mom’s we tend to get overwhelmed in the joys of enjoying being with our new bundle, but also establishing a routine.
When my son was an infant, my husband made sure I set time aside for myself. A couple of times a week he would walk through the door, pass me off a glass of wine and insist that I go enjoy some quiet time in the tub while he attend to the kids and clean-up the dinner mess. It may have been the littlest gesture, but it surely went a long way. It helped me realize that I didn’t have to travel away from the home to put the “me” in motherhood. It also showed me that accepting help was okay. Accepting help was something I had struggled with accepting with my firstborn.
P&G recognizes the importance of celebrating baby, but also putting Mom first. They have put together an awesome Baby & New Mom Essentials Bundle. The approximate retail value of this prize is $190.*
