Getting designated with new position of ‘mother’ is a whole world of responsibilities that every mother smilingly fulfills till the last breath. It remains a learning period all throughout, with many ups and downs, tears and contentment, failures and victory.
Many of us wish to lend a helping hand to lessen the load of mothers and offer support whatever we could, but most of the times, fail to understand the way to do it.
Establishing Assistance for Mothers
Ways to Support New Mothers
The presence of someone trustworthy with caring attitude and listening ears make a big difference in the comfort zone of new mom. She would be more than happy, when one could communicate about her daily experiences of handling the newborn and offer the break time to replenish her strength with much needed rest and sleep.
Become or Arrange a Helping Hand for Household Chores
New mom should be kept as far as possible free from daily cleaning, washing and cooking chores at least for the first three months of the baby’s birth. This assistance would keep her mind free from routine tasks of the house and enable her to fully focus in caring the little one and do it more affectionately. This attention is well needed by the baby and a happy, smiling mother is the added advantage.
Capturing Little Moments
Every parent wants to capture each new moment, activity of the growing baby but this becomes very difficult for the mother as she cannot dilute her attention from the baby for long. Just being around one could offer hands to capture such memorable moments that could be cherished all throughout the life.
Have Fun Time Together
Both parents should have some enjoyable moments together with the baby and this could be easily achieved by taking break from the hectic schedule, reaching home early and actively participating in the baby talks. Mother and father bonding play a vital role in emotional well being of a child as well as in mother’s fast recovery after the delivery.
For Working Mothers
Complete Household Support
Make use of help from maids to take care of entire household chores so that the time mother is back home, she could completely relish it with her baby and mother-baby bonding is uninterrupted.
It becomes the essential requirement for the mother, who needs to be supportive financially but at the same time has lack of lady support within in the family. Carefully perform all background searches about the crèches or babysitting places before handling your baby to the chosen one. Even when under babysitting, keep an eye on baby’s monthly performance and growth.
For helping mothers of teenagers, one could let them have quality time with their children that could be for studies, communication, reassurance and knowing more about the company of friends that they keep. One listening ear that judges without getting judgmental helps to raise a confident child. For this mother/father whosoever is friendlier to the child should be given the space for healthy teenage talks so that children could speak out all their fears and excitement of the growing age.
These small supportive ways surely brings a great respite to every mother who wish to raise a happy, positive and successful child.
