I hold you close you are mine I helped to create you. I carried you in my womb for 9 months and then got to see you come into the world. You took your first breath and gave a loud cry, my heart was thumping did I just do that, is this really real. You were placed in my arms and the love and adrenaline were pumping through my veins. I knew I will Cuddle you and hold you close all my days, even when you are an adult I will try my hardest. Those newborn moments are the best, the most special I plan to make the most of you so small, so helpless.
I recently got sent the most lovely Cushion from fairy non bio. Fairy non bio have a new campaign and its all about removing all the pressure from having a newborn baby and helping mums to really enjoy those first few precious weeks. The cushion was so lovely I cried it was more beautiful than I imagined I felt very blessed. They emailed me and asked me to write a sentence about cuddling my baby I came up with "Having a cuddle with you made me realise what true love is" It is so so true.
I write this as I try to keep my baby a baby as long as I can. The time of a newborn goes by far to fast and your sum what too tired sometimes to really enjoy it. Its only when you look back and realise how much they have changed. We long for the next stage, we see our friends with older babies doing funny things and we want that for our babies only when they do these things we miss the old.
Cuddling a baby is the best thing, my husband often says when don't you put little bear down in his mose's basket as he is asleep, but I don't. I want to savior every cuddle, kiss that downy little head. let him fall asleep on me and really enjoy it. Its so special it has taken three babies to realise this, and miss all those extra long cuddles I missed with the first two. Here is some advice for some new parents that has come from a survey of mums whose babies were over 9 months, so if your pregnant or just given birth take a look:
1. Mummy knows best even when she thinks she doesn't
2. Try not to be super mum
3. You can’t spoil your baby with cuddles
4. Sleep when the baby does
5. Housework can wait
6. Take a ‘baby moon’
7. Don’t compare yourself to other mothers – every baby is different
8. Trust your instincts
9. Treasure every moment
10. If you thought you were in love before you had a baby – wait till you meet your baby!
So remember cherish the time with a newborn, embrace that milky smell. Hold tight that small little baby and really enjoy it for all it is. This poem below is lovely save the picture if you must. It is lovely and so so true.
