Do I Really Need This? – Every Mom Ever.

Ahh, the age-old question.  Whenever you’re scrolling through your newsfeed, you’re constantly seeing the latest “this” or the newest “that” and you often find yourself wondering if it’s something you really need, something you really want or something that’s trending, so you “MUST HAVE IT”. Referring to baby items, of course, however, this can pretty much be the question floating around our minds about any product we see online (or in the store).

I often find that moms get scolded heavily for not using a specific type of brand for, lets say for arguments sake, bottles. Like seriously? Do we really live in a world where we need to prove our worth by the brands we buy and use for our babies. No.

Look, to be honest, and the bottom line here, is that every single baby is different. What works for your baby, may not necessarily work for mine. So it’s normal to question these things.  The only real way of knowing, is purchasing the said product and trying it out. Mammahood is all about navigation and finding that sweet spot for you and your baby.

Motherhood, especially the first few months, is supposed to be a time for bonding and enjoying the time together before you have to go back to work. It’s taking in every single moment and remembering the little looks and learning the different cries.  It’s time spent talking to your baby so he/she learns your voice and starts acknowledging the different sounds. It’s a wonderful experience, and as much as I said I’d never have another one, makes me want to do it all over again!  That’s how special this time is.

So to be honest, the only things you really need are love, support and whatever you think is best for your baby.

Ignore the haters mammas, there’s too much love to give. Peace!
