10 Quick First Time Mom Tips

Excited? Nervous? Expecting! Sometimes all of the emotions can get the hold of us.. what to feel what to do and just hoping not to miss out on anything! Well, here is a quick tip list to guide you and to assure you are doing the basics right. And remember, as long you are loving towards you and the new baby growing inside of you are already doing over 50% of everything you need to do. 

1. DRINK MORE WATER


The general number of glasses of water per day is 10. You should at least try to meet the regular standard.
Get into a habit of keeping a water bottle by yourself at all times


2. EAT YOUR VEGGIES

Some good super veggies for pregnancy are broccoli, leafy greens, asparagus, and avocados.


3. GO BANANAS


Don’t forget your fruits as well! The best fruits for pregnancy are bananas, oranges, raisins, cherries, and cranberries.


4. FIND A GOOD DOCTOR


It is important that you trust your doctor, he or she needs to be someone you can talk to without restrictions. This is something you cannot be too picky about.


5. START SHOPPING!

You want to be prepared for your next trimester with your maternity clothes, don’t wait until you get uncomfortable!


6. GET A JOURNAL


Journal everything- from the changes you experience in your body to how you are feeling. It might come in handy during the pregnancy or at least it could make for nice memory later on.


7. TAKE PICTURES


Same as writing down your memories in a journal, keep track of your belly growth with weekly or monthly pictures.


8. TALK TO YOU BABY


Unborn babies can hear sounds just like born babies can. Hearing your voice will help him recognize you easier when he gets out. A great tip is to decide which lullaby will you sing your baby to sleep with and already start practicing it now.


9. SAVE MONEY


Baby showers are actually a great solution to save money on all the baby clothes and diapers you will have stocked up!


10. ENJOY


These 9 months go by way faster than you think. Make sure you enjoy it every minute and wake up with gratitude of what’s to come.

Washing tips

How to care for your child's clothes

Cotton rompers are soft, made with breathable fabric that's ideal for your baby's delicate skin. It’s also incredibly easy to care for and stays soft wash after wash—two qualities every parent loves in a fabric.

Here are a few tips to keep your Grabsi items looking fresh and new:

1. Wash before first use

 

 Set machine to a normal cycle. Select cold for colors and warm/hot for whites. Before placing items of like colors in the machine, zip all zippers and snap all snaps to prevent the fastenings from snagging. Also, for the same reason, avoid washing your items with anything that has Velcro on it. Once the cycle is finished, remove items promptly from the washing machine. Tumble dry on low.

2. Do not iron or dry clean


3. Enjoy the time with your child

 

How to get rid of the stains

It has happened before that a baby has left a stain of his or her new clothes. That’s just what they do. We love them, but they are clumsy indeed. So, here are some tips on how to get rid of those nasty stains on your items:

Pre-treating stubborn stains

To spot clean a stain, mix chlorine-free bleach with water to create a pasty substance and gently rub into the stain with a toothbrush or stain brush. To soak a stain, fill a sink or basin with hot water and chlorine-free bleach. Soak items for at least one hour. Rinse dirty water and repeat if necessary.

Hand-washing

Fill a basin with warm water and add .5 fl. oz. of your laundry detergent. Mix the water and detergent, using your hands to gently agitate your item. Soak for one hour. Do not worry if color appears in your water, this is normal. Run cool water through item until rinse water is no longer soapy. Squeeze or push out the water. Hang to dry, lay flat, or tumble dry on low. Do not dry any items that still have stains.
