To The Mama With A Newborn In Church

You’re nervous, I know. Your baby is still unpredictable. Sometimes she sleeps for 2 hours, but sometimes it’s only 15 minutes and she wakes up screaming. He went 3 hours without eating the other day, but other times, he’s hungry every 30 minutes. “I don’t want to feed him all during church,” you’ve said. You’re scared to feed with all those people around (“what if she pulls the blanket off?”), but you don’t want to be exiled to the nursery, either. And on that note, there are so many people around. What if he gets sick? His immune system is still so new. Or what if her diaper leaks and I don’t realize it before it’s too late? Do I need to take a change of clothes? What if he cries? What if she screams? Should I just leave him in the nursery? Will people judge me if I bring her into the sanctuary? How do I take care of a newborn in church? Maybe we should just stay home.

When it comes to our babies, we want nothing but the best, right? We want the safest car seats, the smartest doctors, the highest-rated schools. Yet when it comes to baby products such as lotions, shampoos, and wipes, we tend to buy what’s most popular or the ones we’ve heard the most about. Yet these products are the ones that are coming in direct contact with your sweet little one’s skin, so shouldn’t you want the best of them, as well? You should, and I’m a firm believer that natural baby products are the best.

Two pink lines appear on the test, then BOOM! Suddenly, you are faced with so many choices. Pink or blue? Separate crib or co-sleeping?
