Mom’s Delivery Bag Checklist

***Recuerda abajo está en Español***

When should you get your bag ready for delivery day?

I strongly recommend having your bag ready to go by week 34. Actually both bags, yours and your baby’s. Check out here the Baby’s Delivery Bag Checklist. It’s a bit early but it’s better to have everything ready by yourself than go into early labor “by surprise” and have another person preparing and bringing your stuff later. In my case, my water broke by week 36, but I know someone that had her baby by week 35. It was completely fine, just earlier than expected. Just in case…pack early. I just gather some pictures (see below) so you have a better idea, but following I explain everything with details.

Well, let’s take notes about what knowledgeable mommies and nurses say about this topic, so you have a better idea about what to do to cozy up your little one, make him feel better, and quickly stop the crying.

15 Things you need to know when visiting a newborn

The arrival of a baby is the most expected and wonderful moment for parents, family, and close friends. Everyone wants to meet the baby as soon as possible, but there are a few things you need to keep in mind when visiting a newborn.

First, you need to remember that they are not vaccinated and they are like sponges. That’s the reason why some parents prefer to wait a couple of weeks (sometimes two months) before introducing their little one to others. Do not take it personal, be patient and wait until they are ready to meet you. Continue reading “15 Things you need to know when visiting a newborn”

Pilates – Ariana Dupar Interview

*** Recuerda abajo está en Español ***

This week I want to talk about Pilates.

Pilates is a method that helps you improve your body health through strength, elasticity, and pose. It also has an extensive variety of mental health benefits, using breath to manage your stress and increase your ability to relax.

Pilates can be performed by either men or women of all ages; but something that catch my attention about this method was all the benefits women experience when practicing Pilates while pregnant and after giving birth. For me, the best way to learn about this topic was meeting Ariana Dupar at her Doral Pilates Studio. She is a physical educator, ex-gymnast, and Pilates Master Teacher since 2005. I didn’t think twice when I got the opportunity to meet Ariana. It was a great experience. I learned a lot with her and I also practiced some exercises that left me wanting to come back.
