Being a mum makes you a master multi-tasker, whether it came naturally or not – you were simply given no other choice. Adapting and rising to the challenges of daily life while adding the additional challenge, albeit a very welcome one, of a new-born baby can leave you feeling like you need to split yourself into a million pieces to get everything done.
If you’re working, or have a family or toddler to take care of as well as your new little one, you’ll know that it can feel like an insurmountable task sometimes to achieve everything, so it’s no surprise that you can quickly start to feel overwhelmed. That’s what we love about the Babocush – it’s not only a saviour for fussy babies, but it really helps mums’ feel better in the process, and your emotional wellbeing is just as important as your baby’s physical wellbeing. Here’s a few reasons why we think using the Babocush can look after mum’s wellbeing too.
Be confident you're doing the best for your baby
As a mum, you only want the best for your kids. From what they eat, to what you bathe them in to how often you hold them, you want to be 100% confident that you’re doing the right thing. The beauty of the Babocush is that it’s been developed by a mum with first-hand experience of what you’re going through and who only wanted the best for her kids too. The reviews from other mum’s after using the Babocush cushion should really set your mind at ease too about whether you’re making the right decision. Imagine the relief for both you and your baby when you finally find a safe, reliable and thoroughly tested solution to ease the screaming for a little while!
15 minutes to spend with your other kids
We all know how important it is to spend time with your children individually, but when you have a colic-stricken new born, it can feel like the only thing you have time to do is hold them and try to get some sleep. Enter guilt mode - but it doesn’t have to be this way. The Babocush can provide a few minutes of relief from your new born mummy-duties to keep up with your toddler-minding duties! Whether it’s a few minutes to sit and read a story or play together, knowing that your new baby is safe and soothed in their Babocush means you can devote some time and attention to your other family members again, without feeling guilty that you’ve left your baby upset or stricken.
Add a bit of normality to dinner time again
Do you remember what it felt like to sit down to dinner and use both hands to eat? Well, that feeling needn’t be a distant memory with the Babocush. Leaving your baby to prepare dinner or enjoy a meal with your partner where you don’t have to devote 100% of your attention to the baby can help to add a bit of normality to your day again and have some much-needed adult conversation.
Promoting Mental Wellbeing
One of the most significant ways the Babocush cushion contributes to a mother's well being is by promoting mental health. The early stages of motherhood can be overwhelming, and it's essential to have time to relax and unwind.
The Babocush cushion offers a safe space for your baby, giving you a few precious moments to rejuvenate. Even a short break to enjoy a cup of tea, meditate, or read a book can make a huge difference in managing stress and anxiety. Remember, self-care is not a luxury for new mothers - it's a necessity. Looking after your mental health allows you to be the best mom you can be for your baby.
Treat yourself to a bath
Wouldn’t it be bliss to sink into the tub filled with bubbles and chill out for half an hour? With your Babocush, that’s not a problem. You can keep your baby beside you the whole time, nice and content on their tummy while you give yourself a chance to breathe again. Your own emotional wellbeing is so important after having a baby, so don’t feel guilty about taking some time out to make yourself feel human again.
Enabling Physical Recovery
Childbirth, whether natural or via C-section, takes a toll on a woman's body. Adequate rest and recovery are crucial during the postpartum period. However, with a newborn demanding constant care, finding time to rest can be challenging.
The Babocush cushion, with its ability to soothe your baby, can provide you with the opportunity to rest and recover. It can provide temporary relief from having to carry or soothe your baby, giving your body the much-needed break to heal and recuperate.
Encouraging Bonding and Interaction
The Babocush cushion is not just about giving mothers a break. It's also about enhancing the bonding experience with your baby. When your baby is calm and content on the cushion, it provides a perfect opportunity for interaction.
You can use this time to engage with your baby, making eye contact, talking, singing, or reading to them. These interactions are not just enjoyable; they also play a crucial role in your baby's cognitive and emotional development.
Facilitating a Balanced Lifestyle
For many new mothers, the transition into parenthood can be a juggling act. There are countless tasks to manage, from feeding and changing the baby to household chores and possibly work commitments.
The Babocush cushion can be a lifesaver in these situations. By keeping your baby comfortable and content, it allows you to multitask effectively, managing your time better. Whether it's catching up on emails, preparing a meal, or doing laundry, the cushion can give you that extra bit of time you need.
Ensuring Moms Stay Connected
Finally, the cushion can help new mothers stay socially connected. Being a new mother can sometimes feel isolating, especially during those first few months. But social interaction is vital for a mother's wellbeing.
With your baby content on the cushion, you can use this time to catch up with friends, attend a virtual meeting, or even join a mom's group. Remember, staying connected with your support network is essential during this significant life transition.
The Babocush cushion offers more than just comfort for your baby. It also plays a crucial role in promoting a mother's wellbeing, enabling mental relaxation, physical recovery, and fostering social connections. By integrating the cushion into your daily routine, you can ensure a healthier, happier journey through the incredible, challenging, and rewarding adventure that is motherhood.
