What are some ways to prepare your relationship for a baby?

Cupid’s Advice:

Congratulations on your pregnancy! Now, you have nine months to prepare yourself and your significant other for what’s to come next. Cupid is here to help:

1. Friends and family: Ask some of the people who you’re close to for helpful advice. What would they recommend to buy for a newborn? What kind of parenting classes should you and your partner look into? You want to experience being a first-time parent all on your own, but there’s nothing wrong with getting a little help along the way – especially if the people you ask have been through what you’re preparing for now.

2. Organize your finances: You and your significant other need to agree on a set budget. You won’t be able to spend money the way you used to with a new baby on the way. Forget about buying yourself a pair of new shoes whenever the urge comes around. Now, you’ll need to save up for more important products – diapers, baby wipes, bottles, etc.

3. Discuss work: As a couple, you and your honey will need to figure out who is going to stay with the baby and who will stay at home for awhile. If you plan on breastfeeding, the decision has already been made for you. Either way, the both of you will need to think of a schedule that works and/or decide if arranging professional childcare would be the best option.
