DUNSTAN BABY LANGUAGE

Your Pregnancy Checklist

It’s only when you get home that you realise you forgot the most important thing on your pregnancy shopping list. 

As we prepare for the arrival of our little one, so much of our effort goes into things. Cute things, useful things, safe things, practical things, things that look great that we’ll use once. All manner of things. And, look I don’t won’t to be a killjoy. Getting the right ‘things’ for your baby is both important and fun

As we prepare for the arrival of our little one, so much of our effort goes into things. Cute things, useful things, safe things, practical things, things that look great that we’ll use once. All manner of things. And, look I don’t won’t to be a killjoy. Getting the right ‘things’ for your baby is both important and fun.

It’s too easy to get so caught up in the accumulation of stuff, that you neglect the most important item on your list. You.

You might be doing some reading up about giving birth. Good for you. That’s definitely something you need to do. 

But don’t let your preparations for end at the cutting of the umbilical cord. Any head start you get on those first few weeks of parenthood is incredibly valuable. Books. Websites. Instagram! All of them are valuable. Motherhood is hard. Particularly in the first few weeks. 

It’s also why we encourage parents to learn the Dunstan Baby Language twice. Once in the final trimester of pregnancy, and again when the rubber hits the road.

It means you can grasp the fundamentals when you are well rested, and not overwhelmed by your little one 24/7. Then, once baby arrives and motherhood moves from theory to practice, it’s simply a matter of revising and applying what you have learned to the real situation in front of you. It’s a head start and it helps.

Of course, if you’re reading this and you need help with a baby that’s already here, enlist your husband, or any other carer available to learn the baby language with you. Many students say it’s easier learning the language with someone else. Plus it always helps having another set of ears listening out for your baby’s needs. 

So get your pregnancy shopping list in order of priority. And put yourself at the very top. Good luck, momma!
