5 Motherhood Milestones

During a baby’s first year there are major and minor milestones around every corner for baby. From baby’s first smile to baby’s first steps, every day it seems like baby is doing something new – and miraculous. But while baby is learning about the world around her, mom is also learning about baby. It’s not just about the milestones for baby, it is also about the motherhood milestones.

Motherhood Milestones

Moms are prepared to fall in love with their babies and oohhh and ahhh over all of baby’s milestones. But it is the motherhood milestones that remind us, motherhood is not for wimps! Stay strong mom, you can get through them all!

First blood – Curse those teenie tiny nails. I will never forget the first time I nicked my babe’s finger while trimming her fingernails. The little sucker bleed like crazy, and the sight of my baby’s blood trickling out of her body was enough to scar me for life. But a few weeks later, I was back at it — trimming fingers. (Which reminds me, I need to check my daughter’s nails.)

First big boo-boo – OMG, my daughter fell off the bed! No, really – the bed! On. To. The. Floor. I was sure my sweet baby needed a CAT scan. But the nice nurse calmly asked about vital stats and eventually advised that I just keep an eye my baby who was by then happily playing with her toys. The fall barely phased her, I was the one who needed

First frantic call to the pediatrician – Honestly, I can’t remember what prompted my first panicked call to the after-hours number for baby number two (see first big boo-boo for number one’s call). But I remember where I was (outside watching my oldest play with baby in my lap), how upset I was and how awesome the doc on call was. Baby? She was fine.

First “WHAT did you just eat?” – In my case, the answer was (wait for it) dog poop. Yes, really. We have two adorable Yorkies, and one day my newly crawling baby discovered a pile of dried-up poop. By the time I reached her, I had to fish four nasty nuggets out of her mouth. I brushed her gums, but to this day the memory still makes my tummy churn. Ewwww!

First cold – There is nothing worse than watching your child suffer. And when kids get sick, the night is always the worst. Regardless of how many sleepless nights you had when your baby was an infant, the first time you are up all night with a sick baby coughing, sneezing and sniffling it is the most exhausting night ever.

You can’t make their sickies (or boo-boos) go away, but you can help ease their symptoms. That’s why I like Little Remedies products.

Little Remedies believes that “less is more” and the products are made with the fewest and most natural ingredients possible without sacrificing the product’s effectiveness. Little Remedies products do not contain any artificial flavors, artificial colors or alcohol.

Little Remedies Honey Cough Syrup

Little Remedies Honey Cough Syrup is a simple, natural relief syrup for little coughs and throats. It soothes coughs day or night for kids 1 year and up. It contains only three ingredients and still no artificial colors or flavors, no saccharin or alcohol or high fructose corn syrup.

My baby is still too young for “big girl medicine,” but she can safely take Little Remedies Honey Cough Syrup, and that’s relief for both of us.

Moms, wear your motherhood milestones like badges — proud of what you survived. Because just like with babies, more motherhood milestones are around every corner. Someday we will all have to survive, “You want to wear what?” And we will miss the early years’ milestones. I know I will.

Tell me about your motherhood milestones!
