Why I Decided To Take My Baby Outdoors Before He Turned One, Never Mind What Anyone Said

Every new mommy receives a fair dose of unsolicited advice from well-intentioned family members. Even from strangers. This starts while she is still in the process of learning and understanding the needs of her newborn baby. It can get really annoying at times, particularly when the rookie mom has to pretend to follow that advice in an attempt at keeping her loved ones unhurt. Moreover – and this is even worse – when people unknowingly induce anxiety in a mommy’s mind, she faces a huge dilemma of whether to follow societal traditions or her own instinct. When I travel down memory lane, I recall the time when I also went through this situation. My baby and I were sequestered inside our house for many weeks – and I was helpless about it.
