Surviving Your Baby’s Day Care Moments

Babies are cute, and very adorable. But taking care of them and providing for their maintenance is a very tedious job. Especially when it’s their first months in the daycare where you have to go through all the hassle of checking up on them and picking them up and dropping them off.

However, we have some secrets on how to survive your baby’s first few months in the daycare and we would like to share them with you.

Always calculate your time

Be sure to calculate your time of going to work and add 30 minutes to the calculated time. This is the allowance allotted for other unexpected things like diaper time and it will also give you more time to play with your baby.

Prepare everything the night before

Prepare everything the night before and make sure that you don’t forget anything to avoid any additional hassle in the morning.

Get to know your baby’s teachers

Seriously, you have to know your baby’s teachers. Know their backgrounds and how they handle the other babies in the daycare to be sure that your baby is well taken care of when you are not around.

Establish a routine but be flexible in case it gets blown apart

It’s always nice to have a routine, things that you get used to doing on a regular basis for you to be able to work in a more systematic way and for you to avoid memory lapses. But be prepared for any changes due to unexpected circumstances.

Take advantage of your alone time

Always make sure that you are still able to take care of yourself despite the fact that you are preoccupied by other stuff like your career and your baby. Make time to unwind and beautify yourself.

Smile

A smile is the universal language of the heart. And it is also a type of therapy that no one can get enough of. Smiling also fends off all the stress that you were feeling so you should smile even at times when you don’t feel like it to brighten your day because it gives out good vibes.

A lot of people are still finding it hard to juggle motherhood and being a career person. However with determination, love for your job, and love for your baby, there is nothing that you cannot do.

Remember that babies need consistent care and maintenance. They also need positivity so it is necessary that you know how to manage your stress by managing your time well. So that your baby won’t get affected by the stress that you might give off because of the tiring task that you do every day.

Preparation and proper planning are the keys that will help you be able to manage your time and your stress. It’s nothing much and you might be thinking that I’m all talk but believe me, with the proper mindset, you will be able to go through each obstacle of motherhood with ease.
