I’m a late in life mom – who experienced a miracle birth at age 50. However, even though I was older when my son was born, I was still nervous to become a first-time parent.
I personally know how easy it is to feel like you don’t know anything about guiding the life of another human.
I also know: Babies aren’t as fragile as you might think. And you’re going to be just fine.
Continue reading this article and I will give you some stress free baby tips for first-time parents, so you can make your parenting life as easy as possible.
While you might not need all of the baby accessories you see advertised, there are some that will make your life a lot easier.
You might also want to explore equipment to save your back and muscles from fatigue like a Baby Bath Kneeler.
If you aren’t sure if you need a certain piece of equipment, find a friend who has the same thing or something similar. Ask them if it’s really all it’s cracked up to be.

If you are still afraid of handling baby, there are some basic rules you can follow that will help you to become much more confident.
One of the unpleasant things that comes with babies: unpleasant smells. From vomit to poop accidents, there are plenty of weird and not so great smells to go around.
When you want to get the diaper smell out of the house, one of the most important things to do is to immediately put diapers outside of the house. Even if you’re using a diaper Genie or a similar system, putting them outside ASAP is important.
Make sure your baby’s diaper fits. If your baby’s diaper doesn’t fit, you’re going to smell pee and poop and you’re likely to have some leaks.
Some people choose to put bigger diapers on their baby because they can go longer in between diaper changes but that’s not going to help with the smell.
Now that you have these baby care 101 tips, you can feel confident that although you’re a first-time parent …you’re on your way to becoming a pro!
