Over the years, words like babymoon and push present have become insanely popular. And if you are curious about what they mean, Tay Online by Mamas Uncut is here to help.
What Is a Babymoon?
In fact, babymoons have become so popular that it is now a recognized word in Merriam-Webster. According to the dictionary, a babymoon is “a trip or vacation taken by a couple shortly before the birth of a child.”
Which is true, a lot of parents who are getting ready to welcome a little one into the world have become accustom to taking a trip before their boy or girl arrives. The point of the babymoon isn’t the extravagancy of the vacation, it can be as small as a romantic stay in a hotel room down the street.
A babymoon is meant for the parents to take a moment, just the two of them, and connect before the little one arrives. However, a babymoon also carries a second definition.
A babymoon is also “a period of time for parents to spend alone with their new child soon after the child's birth.” Should both parents be lucky enough to receive paternity or maternity leave, then this version of a babymoon is the perfect way for everyone to bond with their newborn.
According to Tummycradle.com, a few great ways celebrate a babymoon vacation are relaxing on a beach, a couples message, a road trip, sleeping in, or a fancy dinner. Babymoonguide.com suggest a stay in a cozy cabin, a cruise, or a game night!
And if you prefer to babymoon with your baby after their arrival, some simple ways to bond with your baby is by singing to them, snuggling them, skin-to-skin time, ad rocking them to sleep.
Any way you choose to celebrate a babymoon, the objective is clear, use the time with your loved one or with your baby to just be. Use the babymoon to get to know each other again, use it to reconnect, use it to remind yourself that while raising a child is far from easy, there is a reason you choose to do it together because you can, because you love each other, because it is one of the best things you will ever do.
Congratulations to all the new parents out there!
