I discovered WeMoms!
In my search for parenting advice, I found WeMoms! I am always looking for resources to share with my readers to help them navigate motherhood. From baby names to baby showers, I found that WeMoms was a great place for moms to get advice from other moms.
The thing that struck me the most about WeMoms is the great sense of community. Moms know they are not alone. There are so many groups for moms with common concerns and problems. When asking questions, you not only get answers from experienced moms, but you get support from moms in the same situation as you. Just knowing you aren’t the only one dealing with the issue, puts your mind at ease.
I got answers from WeMoms!
My niece has a new baby and she is dealing with baby colic. She has been asking for some advice to deal with her baby crying non-stop. All this crying and spitting up the baby is doing makes her feel like she is doing something wrong. Or she feels like something is very wrong with her baby. She tried breastfeeding, but her milk never came in. After she switched to formula, the colic started.
I searched WeMoms to get some advice from other moms. One of the best answers was to trust your intuition. Always see your pediatrician if you think your baby’s health and well-being are in question.
I shared with her some advice to deal with baby colic I found on WeMoms:
- To alleviate colic, create a soothing and serene atmosphere to help your baby calm down.
- Belly massage in a clockwise direction promotes the evacuation of gases and the activation of digestion.
- A hot water bottle on the baby’s belly reduces the pain of colic and gives him a feeling of well-being.
I wish I had WeMoms when my son was born!
After the birth of my son, I was never the same. Yes, I loved the joys of being a mom to an amazing miracle. But, I just couldn’t get control of my emotions. I thought I was just being silly and I would feel better eventually. I wished I had a resource like WeMoms to help. I could have asked other moms – it is so much easier to ask these kinds of questions in a virtual setting as opposed to in-person.
After about 8 months, I discovered I was feeling so emotional because I had postpartum depression. Sure, I had great family relationships, but nothing seemed to help. I worried about everything- especially baby safety and childcare arrangements for baby. I cried about the baby room, the amount of baby food he ate and whether or not I was doing things correctly.
Pregnancy and the birth of your baby are magical and very emotional events. It is important to know that there can also be more difficult times. Managing your emotions and finding a fulfilling rhythm of life after the birth of your baby can take some time.
The postpartum period, also called the postpartum period, extends from the day of delivery to the return of diapers (first period after pregnancy). Isolation, fatigue and feelings of guilt are all warning signs of postpartum depression. Learn to detect them as soon as possible to get help. Count on other family members and friends who will take over to relieve you of certain tasks or give you time to rest.
Not only is WeMoms informational but it’s also fun! The app is not all about baby food and sibling relationships, it’s also a place to unwind! Here is just one example of a fun post about what other moms are watching on TV.
WeMoms is a great place to find genuine love and support between the mom’s or new moms to be. I find it’s very helpful and insightful to share and learn what other women are going thru during their pregnancy and motherhood. It feels good to have other moms that can relate.
Moms help each other on WeMoms, don’t stay alone with your doubts!
