In celebrity baby news, Rachel Platten is a first-time mother. What are some ways to prepare your relationship for a first child?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Becoming new parents is an exciting and trying time. Here are a few things you can do to prepare your relationship for your first bundle of joy:

1. Talk about parenting philosophies: If your Mom raised you and your brothers by herself, but your spouse had a full family with both parents growing up, you both will look at parenting a bit differently. Having a conversation now about how you think you should raise your baby together will help negate any arguments down the road.

2. Accept the reality: You’re going to be parents. Accept this now, and realize there will be sleepless nights. Grandparents will try to intervene to help. Should you consider breast or bottle feeding? Are you going to co-sleep with the baby in your bedroom? You may even bicker about those things. Being prepared now for the lows as a new parent will make the highs even better.

3. Don’t push romance aside: All the both of you are going to be able to talk about is the baby — how excited you are, your hopes and dreams, and your fears. A newborn in the home can make it easy to put aside your relationship, but don’t let it happen. Spending as much time as you can together now, and later between feedings and nap time, will help ensure your relationship stays strong.
