Every new mom has had that moment during the course of their pregnancy when they suddenly realize that they are in over their head. Sure everything starts off rainbows and sunshine, and then all of the sudden, “What have I gotten myself into?!”
For me, that moment was registering for my baby. I arrived at the first aisle — bottles, nipples and pacifiers — and quite literally had a panic attack. Complete with a flood of hormone-related tears. All because I couldn’t figure out which nipple my baby would need — pregnancy leap here — so I was sure she would starve.
If there is one thing a first-time mom to be needs, it is information – and lots of it. From classes and apps to real-mom advice, Central Florida moms to be can find the answers to all of their pregnancy-related questions at the Dr. P. Phillips Baby Place at Winter Park through a variety of online and offline resources.
