Keep Calm And Mom On ✌️—11 Months + 1 Week
Nobody puts baby in a corner. Real talk: Sometime mama just needs a break. So if you ever feel your nerves fraying, there's absolutely nothing wrong with putting baby down in a safe place, like her crib, and taking some deep breaths in another room. (Or jump on Snapchat ? and post some sad puppy-dog-faced pics, we're not judging.) You'll come back calm and refreshed, and baby will look cuter than ever. Promise.
P.S. If you're feeling busy or stressed but have 10 minutes to spare, try Headspace. We adore the meditation app's head-clearing abilities, especially for the crazy days of new motherhood. ? Baby this week: Baby loves imitating and will begin engaging in symbolic play soon! Try this: Jumpstart baby's imagination by playing make-believe. Pretend to chat on the telephone (TV remotes and bananas make fab phones, too!). Feed pretend veggies to your tot's teddy bear. He'll find it fun and hilarious.
