Cupid’s Advice:

Preparing for a child is stressful. Not only is it stressful, but it obviously needs a lot organizing and preparing. When preparing for a baby girl versus a baby boy, you may have to prepare differently. Most importantly, you need to be ready for pink! Pink everything ladies and gentleman! Cupid has some more advice:

1. Pink: Parents-to-be, if you are welcoming a baby girl, be prepared for a mess full of pink. Even if you do not supply the pink, your baby shower sure will. Your baby girl will soon be decked out in all pink attire, so be prepared. Also, the color of the room will need to be gender-specific. When preparing for a baby girl, that color is hands down pink. Parents, go buy some paint and start with those walls!

2. Safety: Preparing for a child is frightening, the amount of work you need to put into your house safety is substantial. It may seem obscure at first, however when your baby girl arrives, you will soon know why locks are necessary. Talk to other parents on how they safety proofed their house, or look in parenting magazines! Once your house is safe, your baby girl is prepared to come inside the home.

3. Childbirth: Childbirth is one of the main things to prepare for when welcoming a baby girl. Birthing classes are ideal for new mothers-to-be. It will teach you breathing methods, different ways to position yourself and control contractions. Learning how to undergo childbirth will prepare you to welcome a new baby girl.
