Mommy Monday: Deena Szklarz

CT Style

(WTNH) – Teresa’s best friend Deena Szklarz shares her story of her first Mommy months and gives Teresa some great mommy advice for Mommy Monday!

  1. Zipper pajamas are your best friend for quick changes in the middle of the night
  2. Rest when the baby rests, you don’t have to sleep, but just relax. No cleaning, no cooking, just recooperate!
  3. Embrace people wanting to help! Food, cleaning and baby help are essential and welcomed (including from your BFF)
  4. Nursing, if you decide to do it, it may not go as you planned, but by the end of the month, it will click
  5. Do what works for your family – lots of people will have lots of advice, but go with your gut. For us, the swing was our lifesaver, this time I hear lots of great things about the Ollie Swaddle – we’ll see.

And above all, lean on your partner and think of the first month (or two or three!) as pure survival mode!  You’re figuring it out and so is the baby!
