The countdown to when the new baby arrives has begun! Whether you’ve had a baby before, or this is your first bundle of joy, it’s an exciting time for you and your family. While doctor’s appointments and planning for the long-term are being dealt with, there are other aspects to consider. Decorating the nursery can be one of the most important parts of preparing for the new arrival. This is a space that you and your baby are going to be spending a lot of time in, so it’s essential to make it as comfortable as possible for both you and baby.
From bump to baby, new parents are constantly trying to prepare themselves for what is to come, but sometimes necessities can get overshadowed by the ‘nice-to-haves.’ When registering for a baby shower, parents should always consider choosing practical gifts, such as diapers and wipes.
This year alone, there are 4.2 million expectant fathers – and they’re much more involved in pregnancy and childbirth than ever before. In fact, many fathers-to-be are so intertwined with their developing baby that they experience symptoms such as weight gain, nausea, insomnia and even labor pains, called Couvade Syndrome.
