Ten years ago, when my husband and I brought my oldest son home from the hospital, I wished that he came with an owner’s manual (especially during one of those first nights when he did not want to sleep!). Neither of us had much experience with babies, especially a newborn.
So, in place of an owner’s manual, I quickly subscribed to several parenting magazines, including American Baby Magazine.
I pored through all the baby tips to find answers to my new-mom questions, and I even tore out the best articles and filed them away in my parenting folder (complete with page protectors – yes I was much more organized back then!). I wanted to be able to refer back for alternatives to DEET mosquito repellant when we were camping, natural methods to relieve constipation, natural ways to help a baby sleep who has a cold, and much more.
The best part about American Baby Magazine? You can get a year’s subscription for FREE! Plus, it often includes money-saving coupons among the ads.
So, if you’re a new mom, you can request a FREE subscription for yourself, or you can even give it as a gift for a new mom (they never have to know it was FREE).
