Heather Flett and Whitney Moss know just how tedious the first three months of motherhood can be, and took to the web to share ideas for new moms. Rookie Moms offers first time mothers a variety of outings, projects and to-do lists that not only help pass the time, but encourage newbies to venture beyond the front door. From learning how to shower when home alone to taking your wee one for his first swim, their suggestions are written in a way that makes any mom feel like an adventurer, rather than a nervous nilly. And for moms of older tots, the Rookie Moms continue the exploration with activities and crafts that will keep toddlers and preschoolers busy for hours!
Newborns are small, precious bundles of joy, but they're also pretty boring. They don't talk, they don't react to your attempts at humor and they spend most of their days (but not, unfortunately, their nights) sleeping. Before giving birth, few experienced moms tell you just how uneventful the first few months of a lil one's life can be – particularly for women who have left the hustle and bustle of life in the workplace for maternity leave.
