  • Madalas makakuha ng unsolicited advice ang mga nanay mula sa kung kani-kanino. Malimit, ang mga piraso ng advice na ito ay base pa sa mga luma o outdated na paniniwala na hindi na akma sa mga babies ngayon.

    Kaya naman mailap ang mga nanay sa mga taong mahilig magbigay ng unsolicited advice. Ngunit sa aming Facebook group na Smart Parenting Village, ibinahagi ng isang nanay ang mga unsolicited advice niya na talaga namang makabuluhan.

    Malaking tulong ang mga ito, first-time mom ka man o nagpa-planong maging magulang. Heto ang mga payo ni mommy Ena Marie Olivares-Dizon.

    Top 20 makabuluhang advice para sa mga pregnant first-time moms

    1. Buy a Haakaa if you want to breastfeed. Every drop counts!
    2. Invest in a good breast pump, a chest freezer, and plenty of breastmilk bags if you decide to breastfeed.
    3. Pregnancy pillow/nursing pillow is your best friend.
    4. Have a birth plan and discuss it well with your OB-GYN.
    5. Don't believe everything you see online. Ask your OB-GYN right away if you have concerns.
    6. Build your stash 30 days before going back to work.
    7. If you have a baby who wants to freely move around and doesn't want to be contained, don't buy expensive electric swing and playpen.
    8. Leave those Facebook groups with toxic and conceited mommy members.
    9. Read about Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
    10. Postpartum blues is normal.
    11. Postpartum depression is real. Reach out to young moms and share with them what you feel.
    12. Be physically, mentally, and emotionally ready for growth spurts.
    13. Don't compare your baby with other babies. Every child grows uniquely and develops differently.
    14. Watch out for "red flags" in baby's development. It's better to obey than delay.
    15. Some moms do it better, imitate them.
    16. Some moms humiliate, avoid them.
    17. For medical advice, ask your child's healthcare provider, not the comment section.
    18. Sleep while you still can.
    19. Don't overexpose your baby online. #PedoAlert
    20. Prioritize only things that matter.
