cAtarina Gouveia took stock of her daughter’s first month, baby Esperança, and took the opportunity to share the principles she decided to follow with her Instagram followers.
“Throughout my pregnancy, I planned, studied and learned a lot, but as much as I studied, I built myself as a mother during these weeks, with choices that make me think I’m a better mother.Sometimes I felt like I was drowning, but I always resorted to positive cues and practices to get my breath back!‘, referring in a post on Instagram.
But he describes what he did:
“- Breastfeeding and on demand. I realize my good fortune. For me, it was a natural process and without any difficulties, I arrived with a perfect grip. I decided not to introduce a lollipop And I think this choice has also contributed to this positive development, because it can lead to nozzle confusion, among other conditions I wanted to take into account.
– Free application. Every baby is unique, so I wanted to give my baby the right and freedom to choose when and how often to breastfeed, at her own pace. There are no schedules, no rules.
– Slings and fresh air. I have been using it since the early days of Esperanza’s life. It is pure connection. It is the possibility of extending the feeling of safety, reception and comfort of life inside the womb to the newborn. The independence it offers us is unique!
– You have time for me. Newborns sleep a lot! In his naps, I dedicate myself to what is important to me: minimally organizing the house, training, and preparing nutritious meals.
– At the end of the day, before night sleep, we reduce stimuli as much as possible.Dim lights, low noise, skin-to-skin bathing, in the bath or shower. These baths calm and relax you. She and I! ”
From the point of view of the actress, who is married to Pedro Melo Guerra, the secret was simplicity. “When I got pregnant, I felt engulfed in a frenzy of anxiety and consumption: the baby’s room, the changing table, the nursing chair… Esperança doesn’t have room, I change her diaper wherever I can, her energy is basic and I breastfeed her anywhere. Our essentials: attendance, stone, touch, and reception. We don’t need anything else!Guaranteed.
He adds, “This is my best advice so that we can welcome our children, with all the love and sympathy they deserve. And have the right person by our side. My Super Pedro. A very essential conditioner for this happy development.” .
