Parents are usually much excited to celebrate the first birthday of their new-borns.
This excitement most often makes them choose some extravagant things which are not required.
The most important point is that your baby will not remember it at all; instead, he will not remember anything unless he is four years old.
What Not To Do With a New-born Baby?
Parents tend to be over-anxious and concerned about everything related to their new-born. You can find them freaking out and being panicked by the slightest indication of a cough or sneezing.
They react in this way because they are not familiar with such conditions and tend to overreact.
New parents tend to be extra cautious about saving their new-born from anything that could be harmful to him. Usually, they overdo. It is essential to have some precautions, but every new thing is not going to harm their new one.
They spend much of the memorable moments of getting anxious and being extra cautious.
Being first-time parents, they can be excused for overreacting to situations; but they should remember these learned lessons for the future.
Till the time they get their second baby, they should have got learn which situation needs their due attention and which can easily be overlooked.
They should learn to enjoy the beautiful moments with their young babies instead of protecting them from each and everything new.
Young babies need to be carefully introduced to the world where they are going to reside from now on.
The responsibility of a new-born is not an easy task. Parents need to be quite careful and make sure that the little one is safe and sound.
Avoid using swabs to clean the baby’s ears as it could damage the eardrum of the child. You can use a washcloth to wipe the baby’s ear.
The skin of your baby is quite sensitive. Thus it is better to keep him in the shade.
Making Baby Stand
Don’t put the baby to stand too early as his legs and back aren’t much strong. Wait till the baby is 6 to 8 months old.
Prevent People from Kissing the New-born
Ask people not to kiss the new-born as any contact with the virus and bacteria can be quite dangerous.
Keep checking the baby’s diaper and change it if the aby urinates as to prevent the diaper rash and other diseases.
It does not make sense that parents do unnecessary expenses for an event which their baby will not remember at all.
You can plan the baby shower on a budget too.
Well, it is better for this money for the time when their baby would be able to enjoy and remember the event.
Parents who have spent lavishly on the early birthdays of their eldest baby should not be repeating this extravagance on the birthday parties of their second or third children.
They should save money for a special birthday event when their child turns sixteen or any special one when he is excited about the birthday party.
Indecisive New Parents
The sense of responsibility in parents, who have their first-born, makes them doubtful and lesser confident.
Their minds are full of doubts, even when they follow the decision making the procedure quite logical. Whatever they do, they feel that there is a great possibility of making the wrong choice.
Resultantly, they have to follow the advice of other experienced parents; or they have to follow their instincts for taking care of the new-born.
It takes time to gain confidence in making the right decisions.
The experience with the first-born will somehow be the same, but parents can learn all these lessons and add to their experience for taking care of their next baby.

Changing The Home Routine Altogether
Parents, at times, get much anxious in taking proper care of their new-born that they feel like changing everything for him. It seems a dramatic situation that parents change every pace of their activities altogether.
They change even the things that were considered perfectly normal before the birth of their first baby.
Moreover, they try to stop every activity and possible noise around to make their first-born have a sound nap.
They do not even mind getting rid of their favorite pets, as they fear that these pets may not hurt their new-born.
Parents should change a few things to accommodate their new ones, but they should not be changing each and everything important to them a little earlier.
They should think of sending away their pet only when he gets aggressive.
Furthermore, they should train their new-born to sleep even in some noisy place because managing a pin-drop silence is hard to maintain; otherwise, every time there would be some noise, he would get up and eventually will not be able to have a proper sleep.
Extravagant Baby Furniture
Parents are usually excited to arrange an adorable bedroom for their first-born.
They want to have the best quality or branded products like changing tables, cribs, and strollers as a gift for their fresh addition to the family.
They should do a favor to themselves by choosing the furniture that is not overpriced because soon they will have to discard it, no matter how expensive or good quality it had.
Abundance Of Toys For The Baby
Parents usually tend to spend lavishly for the best and the overpriced toys of their first-borns.
They love to keep collecting the new variety of toys until the time that no more space is left.
They hardly give it a second thought that it is worth it, or they are just spoiling their baby.
Parents should not believe it to be their duty to buy every new toy available in the market.
The first-time parents do some strange things in their excitement of having a new addition to the family soon. They should realize their mistakes and try to overcome them.
It is natural for the parents to be excited and overwhelmed with joy.
Still, they do not need to send invitations to the whole community.
Brands and their prices hold no value for their new-born; they should enjoy these memorable moments with their little ones instead of being obsessed with new or expensive products.
All in all, parents need to know what to do and what not to do with a baby.
