COLTON (8 MONTHS)
1. Tell us about the first time you really felt like a “mom/dad”
The first time I really felt like a mom, was about 4 months after my first baby was born. There is so much that is new when you first become a parent, and it doesn’t always just “click” like you think it would. By 4 months postpartum, we were both in tune with each other and motherhood finally became real for me.
2. Who is your mom role model?
My mom role model is my own mama. Now that I am a mother myself, I can see why she made all of the choices she did when I was younger. Besides that, she is a very generous person and I hope to be that way with my boys when they are older as well.
3. give us one word that describes your mom style?
I’d have to say “relaxed”! I love being comfortable.
4. Two tips for a new mom?
Tip 1: People will tell you all kinds of things, but in the end, you know what’s best for your own kids. Do whatever you believe to be the best for your children.
Tip 2: Make time for yourself. Even if it’s just a 5 minute shower during your babies nap, or painting your nails. Don’t forget to take care of yourself!
5. Favorite Finn + Emma product and why?
Our favorite Finn + Emma item is the Teething Ears! We love the gorgeous wood and the fabric. My little guy gnaws on it more than any of his other toys. It’s really helping break his new teeth through!
