How about dealing with your extended family for the rookie mom?
Or tips on how to look good for and to focus on her family those imperfectly perfect mamas?
The stay at home mom may easily get carried away with focusing on her family and may lose her sense of fashion. The working mom has to be able to balance her career and manage the home front. Being a mom never truly stops. It's a life long journey. Becoming a mom typically comes with a lot of lifestyle changes. How do you as a guest blogger think moms should handle this? What lifestyle can moms adopt?
AmyandRose is one of the parenting blogs that accept guest post on these topics. Before pitching your ideas do remember that they should focus on the family audience.
During pregnancy, a lot of changes happen in a woman's body, and especially for new moms, there are a lot of questions to be asked. During the first 12 weeks or three months often referred to as the 1st trimester, a woman is likely to suffer from morning sickness, recurrent trips to pee, headaches, cramps, fatigue, spotting, loss of appetite, frequently sleeping among other things. Your guest post is intended to help allay the fears of these women. As a parent blogger, you may include money saving tips for new moms.
For some women, they get hospitalized during the first months of pregnancy and will be unable to keep food down. You can offer useful tips on the nutritional requirements of the new mom during these tumultuous months. This is also the period where miscarriages are more likely to happen, and moms need every advice at this time on the right things to do. Moms to be will also need advice on safe pregnancy exercises.
During the 2nd trimester, which is from week thirteen to the twenty-seventh week, a lot of these symptoms will have reduced or stopped entirely. Now the moms to be will begin to feel a renewed surge of energy and an increase in appetite. The stomach is a bit more conspicuous, and they may start to crave junk and unhealthy food. At this time, stretch marks will begin to appear on the breast and stomach of the woman, and she begins to put on weight. This can be quite disconcerting for the mom to be. This is the time to prepare for the arrival of a newborn.
During the 2nd trimester, a scan can tell the sex of the baby, and the woman can felt the movement and kicks of the fetus. The fetus also develops a sleep pattern that may not be in sync with the mother. From your experience, you can guide expectant mothers on how best to prepare for a newborn from getting a baby crib and clothes to planning for a maternity leave at work.
On nights when the woman cannot sleep owing to the activity of the fetus, you can give suggestions on things to do during these long nights. The expectant mother can read books on motherhood and stories to the fetus whose sense of hearing is developed. This is also the time to ditch pre-pregnancy clothes and moms to be will find your opinions invaluable. You can, through your articles, give tips to pick loose yet stylish dresses, so the woman doesn't lose herself or sense of style. This is also the time to wear comfortable shoes, and your guidance will be most valuable. On the plus side, the fetus can survive with the right medical care if it is born prematurely from the 24th week. This bit of information a mom to be will find reassuring.
At 28 weeks and above, the pregnancy advances to its 3rd trimester. Expectedly the stomach becomes much more protruded, and your expected day of delivery is getting closer by the day. Kicks and movements are more intense now, and your guest post will help soothe the aching bodies of moms to be. They’ll need true stories about giving birth and child development.
Expectant moms need experienced guest authors in this subject to remind them of the items required when expecting a baby. Regular visits to the doctor are a must now as the coming of the baby draws closer.
Other women are typically worried when they are pregnant, particularly with first pregnancies. Pregnancy comes with a lot of challenges for the expecting mother. She asks questions such as,
- How do I prepare for the pregnancy?
- Will I have a miscarriage?
- Can I carry my baby to term?
- Will my baby have a congenital disability?
- Will a particular kind of food be bad for my unborn child?
- What if I don't lactate enough?
- How will my baby be nourished?
- What if I go into labor too early?
- What should I experience during pregnancy?
- How do I handle the changes to my body, physically and emotionally?
- Am I going to be a good mom?
- What items should I include in my baby registry?
- What am I supposed to watch out for in my first, second, and third trimester?
- What should I expect from gender predictors?
- What kind of exercises are good for me while pregnant?
These are some of the questions moms-to-be find themselves asking.
Some women also struggle with issues of infertility. They are afraid of never being able to get pregnant, maybe because they are single, advanced in age, or have some other medical difficulties. Do you have any tips to offer such as an ovulation calculator?
- What kind of diet should pregnant women be on?
- What type of food and drinks are to be avoided?
As the day draws closer to the date of delivery, it may be beneficial to have a due date calculator handy. Have you got any super helpful tips to share?
A healthy lifestyle is essential for everyone, and even more critical is a prenatal exercise for a pregnant woman. A healthy pregnancy will often than not, result in the birth of a healthy baby.
Caring for a newborn
The news of the arrival of a baby is usually greeted with much joy and excitement. Nurturing and mothering newborns may be quite overwhelming so much that it sometimes leads to postpartum depression. The baby will require different things for each stage of its development. Parents and moms particularly may have inquiries about its development, growth, health, breastfeeding, formula feeding, and be willing to seek the help of a toddler sleep consultant. This will often result in having to make a couple of trips down to the pediatrician's office. Moms may have some questions about the color of their baby's poop. How can you calm these moms down?
Babies usually have different needs. There's no single universal way to take care of babies. Babies will cry to express feelings of hunger, hurt, stomach aches, and pains.
- How will moms be able to distinguish each cry and know what the baby needs?
- What baby products are tested and trusted?
- How effective are baby monitors when you're not around your child?
- "My baby is so tiny and fragile; will I not drop it? How do I know if I've fed my baby enough?"
These are a few of the questions moms need answers to.
- How about sleep patterns?
- Babies may sometimes have trouble sleeping and may have irregular sleep patterns that will be a source of torment for parents.
- What are the triggers for these erratic sleep patterns?
- Do parents need to consult sleep consultants?
- Will these sleep patterns self-resolve?
- How can parents make their babies more comfortable?
- Often, when babies do not meet certain developmental milestones, parents become concerned. How do you think parents should handle this?
- At what stage would they need to see their doctor?
- Do you think they may be unnecessarily worried?
What are your thoughts about new moms?
Some moms are pretty judgy. They complain and criticize the decisions of more modern moms.
- What can these new moms do?
- How can these imperfectly perfect mamas handle this?
- Many moms experience postpartum depression. Have you ever gone through this?
- Do you have any observations or tips to share?
We'd love to hear from you. You could write about personal or other peoples' experiences.
- What are your thoughts on breastfeeding?
- If needed, what is the correct way to breast pump?
- Do you think milk expressed through a breast pump will not be as fresh as the mom's milk?
Another question posed by moms is, 'how soon after the birth of a child should I begin to consider having another'? With the birth of another child, other issues may be berthed. Sibling rivalry is one of such. How do you think parents can address it? What are the signs to watch out for? How can parents fruitfully resolve conflicts?
Raising kids can be pretty hectic. We want to hear from you. You could write about experiences with parenting you know or have heard about. We are trying to dispel the lies about parenting. A rookie mom may be quite anxious and worried about not doing the right things or not doing enough. Being a mom, especially a first-time mom, can be quite terrifying. Caring for a baby may bring waves of emotions and feelings that could easily be overwhelming.
Potty training can also be a source of headaches. At what age should moms begin to potty train? How do moms know if their toddlers are ready to be potty trained?
Healthy moms are happy moms. Organizing as a mom may be quite stressful. It's quite easy to get lost in the whirlwind of activities in the home. Energy levels seem to be quickly depleted. Sleep becomes a luxury, and eating intentional meals may be a far off dream.
The stay at home mom may easily get carried away with focusing on her family and may lose her sense of fashion. How do you think stay at home moms can work around this?
You can post ideas on how she can start making money and especially about making money online. You can suggest sites that pay for parenting stories through affiliate marketing so they can make some extra income. There are guest blogging sites that will be willing to pay you to write parenting advice, baby care tips, organizing tips, suggestions for baby names and baby products, and family-friendly trending topics. You may write about how guest blog posting about personal story or sharing your expertise on parenting tips or about family and parenting can change a mom's life by opening paths to new income streams.
The working mom has to be able to balance her career and manage the home front. Some moms can work from home, having the freedom to focus on her family, and also do her job. The average mom wonders how she would maintain and healthy work/life balance. Stay at home moms, and working moms often have different challenges. Your blog posts can cover topics relating to associates program and blogging tips for the mom who is looking for a guest posting opportunity on mommy blogs.
Being a mom never truly stops. It's a life long journey. Becoming a mom typically comes with a lot of lifestyle changes. How do you think moms should handle this? Yummy mummies have it quite easier, snapping back to how their bodies were before pregnancy.
Unfortunately, this is instead the exception and not the norm for the majority of women. Moms are generally worried about their postpartum bodies. Scared that their bodies may never go back to how it was pre-pregnancy. What lifestyle can moms adopt? How can moms get through this?
Being a single mom can be downright depressing. Not with having to worry about the societal stigma. Single moms often face the fear that they'll never be enough for their child/children.
- They find themselves asking questions like, will I earn enough to be able to support us?
- Can I handle this responsibility?
- How do I approach the issue of shared custody in a case of divorce or separation?
- How do I thrive and survive with my child in a world without my partner?
Adoptive families go through some socially awkward periods, particularly when a child has just been adopted. It is notably more challenging when an older child has been adopted. This child may have likely undergone some form of emotional trauma or have been abused physically. These children sometimes have striking facial features that are very different from the adoptive parents. How do you best suggest adoptive parents handle these situations? Adopted babies will most likely be formula-fed. Foster parents may feel like they would not be able to quickly bond with the babies. Some may even think that breastfed babies are generally smarter than formula-fed ones. How can you correct this notion?
Parents play an essential part in children's education. From the time children are little, parents consciously and unconsciously impart some form of knowledge on them. Children, even of the same parents, may often require different teaching skills.
- How do parents' versatility and perception result in an enhancement of children's abilities?
- Is there a perfect time for children's learning capability to be optimal?
- What determines the decision to homeschool a child?
- Where do the skills taught in school, and what's learned at home, converge?
- Accidents are pretty common in the house. How do you think parents can prevent them?
Family time should be a fun time—a time when every member of the family chirps in and shares values. Weekends and holidays can be typically spent bonding. It is quite vital to prioritize activities. Chores, often infringe on quality family time. Balancing work and family life can sometimes seem like a herculean task.
- How do parents maximize family life?
- How can members of the family spend their time being productive?
- Do you think love can ever be too much?
There are often a couple of trending topics on parenting. Freelance writers are welcome to share their takes. Information is available from different sources. Writers should take advantage of this. You can also take ideas from other popular parenting websites such as Metro parenting, Fine parenting, Chicago parent, raising Arizona kids, and Minnesota parent.
As time passes, parenting becomes somewhat more comfortable. Children attain some level of self-sufficiency. With babies growing toddlers into adolescents, then teens, and eventually to adults, it is a commonplace for there to be a level of independence.
The new worry for parents becomes how to handle teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. At some point, parents may begin to feel like their children are growing apart from them. This may be a source of heartaches, worry, and in other cases, pride on the part of the parents. It may be difficult to retain some semblance of friendship with children, now teens or adults.
