Baby’s Health
  If pregnancy wasn't enough to worry about, now you have a whole separate little person to look after.
Baby Needs
There are so many things you need before your baby is born, we thought we would list them for you. Take stock of the things you will need for baby, and remember that SmartMomma's store can help you with many of these needs!
Behavior
  As your baby changes and grows, you will notice many new behaviors. Your baby is developing a personality of her own. Along with this exciting time comes some uncertainty, as you adjust to your baby's behaviors.
Bonding
You've just found a new love in your life. Over the next few months, this love will grow and grow, as you witness his first smile, his first belly laugh, and his first steps. Cuddle your baby as often as you can. Before you know it, he will be a toddler on the go!
Infant Development
  See how your baby is developing month by month.
Nutrition
Keeping baby healthy goes hand in hand with your baby's nutrition. Whether you're breastfeeding, formula feeding, or moving on to table food, nutrition is key to giving your baby a head start in life.
Play
  Play time for baby is a time where she can learn such skills as lifting her head, processing verbal cues, and learning about the world around her. The more you interact and play with your baby, the faster her intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development. So play hard mom!
Safety
Gone are the days of reckless abandon before you had kids. Now you worry every time they fall down, cough, or even look at you funny. While it is important to promote safety with baby, remember that spills will happen. With proper planning, you can minimize many dangers in baby's world just by using good old fashion common sense.
