What are some lifestyle changes to make before having a baby?

Cupid’s Advice:

Having a baby is nothing to step into lightly, as there are some major life changes you need to make before welcoming your child to the family. Cupid has some tips:

1. Baby proof: The most obvious changes you need to make before having a baby involve your surroundings. It’s important to baby proof all of the outlets in your home and to create a living space especially for the young.

2. Be happy at home: Perhaps you’re used to hitting the town with your partner on a nightly basis. This will most likely have to change once you have a baby, so it’s best to learn how to be happy at home before you give birth.

3. Work as a team: If you’ve never had a pet or other kids, it’s possible you’ve never had to work closely with your partner toward a common goal. As a way to ease into motherhood/fatherhood, consider adopting a dog. Raising a pet is certainly not the same as a child, but it’ll point you in the right direction.
