• 10 Week Old Baby Milestones 👶

    There's nothing quite as special as rocking your baby to sleep and singing a lullaby, but there's even more reason to incorporate music into your routine. Music is so wonderful for babies' brains and personal development.

    Here are some compelling reasons to keep the music playing all day long:

    • Improves memory: Music helps improve brain function by creating more connections within the brain.
    • Improves language development: When baby listens to music, they learn how to dissect the way language is put together.
    • Reduces stress and supports mental health: Studies show that music eases stress, even during medical procedures.
    • Improves mood: Music, particularly joyful music, has a positive effect on the heart, which helps boost your mood.
    • Improves sleep: Classical music helps improve the quality of sleep your baby gets, because it provides a routine, induces a mental state suitable for sleeping, and drowns out ambient noise.

    Ready to turn on the tunes? Check out the best classical music for babies.

  • You at 10 Weeks Postpartum 👩

    As you move into your new role as a mother, you and your partner may also be going through a shift, figuring out your new roles together as parents. (Not to mention you’re both sleep deprived!) For some, this transition may require a little bit of work, communication, and collaboration.

    Going from a couple to a family of three can be a tricky transition. Here, you might find some helpful tips on how to transform your relationship and effectively communicate with your partner. To help you along even further, here are some ways you can support each other and find more time throughout the day:

    • Divvy up the workload—make sure you are equals in the parenting department
    • Set expectations for daily routines (i.e. papa does bathtime, mama does bedtime story)
    • Create a flow chart for mama and papa (this will help you understand what needs to happen daily and who will be in charge of what)

    The first few months as parents can throw you for some unexpected relationship loops. As long as you stay connected to your partner and communicate your wants and needs, things should start to fall into place. Soon this whole parenting thing will become second nature. You’ve got this, mama (and papa!).
