When we are expecting or have a new baby, we welcome a new member to the family. This is something that we rejoice in, capture and share with everyone we know. Many of us see those expecting announcements on our social media and share our own joys as well, and when those little ones make their way into the world, we all see those moments, share them, and congratulate the families! Well, with a new baby, there are so many congratulations we get, and right now, The First Years is hosting an amazing contest where to enter, you share your, (WTF!) Welcome To The Family moment!

    We welcomed the new baby by having the family over for a little meet and greet. We also spend lots of alone, quality time getting to know our precious little one.

    We are a a really low key family, so we just brought the baby home. Of course, we also had preemies that needed quiet once they were out of NICU.

    when we had our daughter we kept it as quiet as possible and requested no visitors for at least a week so we could adjust and so i could establish a feeding routine and get much needed rest. will be doing the same thing with baby number 2 coming this june. it worked out well for our first and dont plan on having visitors or visit anyone plus baby will make an appearance by Fathers Day 🙂

    We had a peaceful home birth the second time around and because I was in my own element, I was okay with immediate visitors during and after birth without the stress of hospital staff coming and going. It worked out well and I enjoyed it. We had a few party platters and it basically was that, a quiet party.

    My daughter had her baby in January, and we welcomed her in the hospital after she was born. The grandparents (one is me) stopped in the room for a short time after she was born to allow quiet time for mommy, daddy and Juno.
