Despite being the mom of a blossoming four year old I still remember those early days of motherhood – but are they something we ever forget? My parents still love to retell stories from my own first days. I remember the first time she kicked, the first contractions, the first time I laid my eyes on her gorgeous brown ones and then all of the hundred first and last that come after that.
I also remember the even more questions I had after that. Can she hear me in there? Are these contractions or Braxton Hicks? How will I know how much to feed my baby? When will I hear her first laugh? Will she know I’m her mommy or that he is her daddy? I was always consulting with doctors, friends, blogs, books and more. Sometimes I just wanted quick answers right now – not those that began with “All kids are different but mine….” Don’t get me wrong, those answers we’re helpful but didn’t always alleviate the First-Time-Mom anxiety. It can be overwhelming trying to find answers for the simplest questions.
A new tool for first (or third!) time moms is the “Baby’s first year” timeline by Similac. The timelines’ design answers your most basic questions in a fun, interactive manner. No more scrolling through paragraphs of text or round about answers!
Even better, when you check out the new timeline and put your new found mommy knowledge to the test you will get a Similac Coupon for $2 off your next Similac® purchase. It would be a great time to check out Similac’s new OptiGRO formula. The three Advance stages of Similac® with OptiGRO™ are designed to be closer than ever to breast milk, growing with your baby from birth to 24 months. You can find more information on Similac’s OptiGRO at Similacs Mom Knows Best.
