THE BEGINNER'S CORNER!
Or how to reassure yourself, by telling yourself that there is worse than yourself ...
As a future mom, I recently tried to imagine all the situations with my child. From the simplest to the most complicated.
It's like that, I'm HYPER organized and I don't like the unexpected… (Hating the unexpected when you're about to give life is enough paradoxical, I know!)
SHOPPING, A COTTON SITUATION
After having read almost all the articles of future parents, looked on the internet for tips and listened to everyone around me (because yes, everyone is going about their comments. From my mother to the neighbor at the end street who had a child forty years ago) , I think I'm ready for most situations. But is not a wonder woman who wants… With: - 1 baby (or twins) - the diaper bag - the handbag - two, three packs of Volvic under the cart and the shopping bags letting the groceries overflow. week, including a dripping tube of tomato sauce with holes, and the latest lipstick you ever thought about buying yourself.
Ready for any situation ... except, maybe for shopping!
Even with a stroller, it becomes complicated because it is not possible to store all your groceries ...
At arm's length, you carry the bags, push the cart and baby screams. Not a glamorous situation! You keep what little self-esteem you have by (trying) to stand up straight and hide your shortness of breath!
Tempting ... but not physio ;-)
To avoid this and pass this step as calmly as possible, I then wondered about the means to make the task more pleasant.
Why not have thought earlier ?
My goal? Have your hands free while pushing my cart or carrying my shopping bags.
Idea n ° 1 : Put Baby on the small seat of the cart. Method quickly forgotten ... Impossible with an infant !!
Idea n ° 2 : The baby carrier. Initially skeptical, many of my friends have told me about babywearing . One of the articles that really made me take the plunge, mentions the interests of carrying a child, HERE .
Have your hands free for shopping? When I take the plane to avoid putting the stroller in the hold? For walks? .. The idea of carrying baby directly against me makes it easier for me to project myself. Why not?
Well .. obviously, this is not a miracle cure that will do the shopping for me .. But the relationship with the child will be different. Less stressed, I could make her feel that everything is under control while allowing her to stay warm, unfazed.
This also applies to you, gentlemen!
