Have you ever met a kid who doesn’t move or flap his/her arms like a chicken when listening to a song or two? They can’t help it; they are just naturally fascinated by a melody. They immerse themselves into a song they like and keep going back to it over n over again. Now if we talk about studies, there aren’t any on whether kids of young age benefit anything from listening to music but then who needs studies and researches when what you see proofs it works. You get a happier, chirpier musical child!!
Most new parents are fully equipped with everything they could get their hands on for their baby. Bottle warmer to a car seat to tiny little onesies. So when you give them something they have in abundance know that your present is stacked neatly in a pile that will probably be given away. Here are few things that guarantees a long thank you note.
Most dads-to- be are pretty naive about what happens post pregnancy. They are not prepared to deal with the pressure of taking care of a tiny creature and also understanding what their wife needs. In this never ending task of becoming an awesome dad and also an understanding husband, most give up. They decide to take a step back and in the process makes it worse for the new mom. Now many people say you need to tell the man directly what you want him to do and we agree. So below are some of the things women in Pakistan want their husbands to do.
If you are a new mom and all that is happening in your life right now seems too overwhelming and confusing than here are some tips to help you get by:
Tell people who tell you to stop crying to STFU.
Know that this is not going to end anytime soon. It WILL get better. Thora sa. When, you ask? Well it all depends on the little human you’ve created. There is nothing you can do to expedite the process.
Ask your mom to come help you out or GO HOME (some Saaso mas are great, but they can never substitute for your mom. You will feed the need to scream, you will want to shout and we all know we can only do that with our dear old ammis/amma/mama.
Reach out to other new moms; you need the support of those who are going through the same shit. No one understands better than the first mommy clan.
Do not ask, TELL your ‘Majazi Khuda’ what he needs to do. If his services were required to create your lo, he better be available to stay up the night too.
