This article is mainly for new parents, or parents with little ones running around, but daddies should read it too...and then you can help the mommies!!!
Ok, so you've had a baby, and most mothers out there have BABY BRAIN for at least the first two years of their childs life right? So what is baby brain?? You eat, sleep and breath your baby!! You have no idea about anything that's going on in the world, all your focus is on your child, and rightly so as any good mother will tell you! But it isn't selfish or wrong to want a little time for yourself to be you instead of Mommy!! And it doesn't make you a bad mother either!
Let Dad or Gran have some bonding time with the baby, even if it's just an hour!
Take a shower, sleep, watch the news, catch up with friends online! Which by the way is a life saver when you have little ones and can't get out much!
Just for a little while, do something that has nothing to do with your child! It may sound harsh but even after just one hour of doing this, you get your baby back and you're even more prepared for anything your child throws at you! It improves your parenting because you are less stressed and frustrated! And your baby senses when you're happy and relaxed, which in turn makes them happy and relaxed!!!
So Ditch the baby brain for at least an hour a day, you'll be a better parent for it I promise!
