Five things Beyoncé and Other Expecting Mothers-To-Be Should Know

Dear Beyoncé,

As a recent new mother there are some things I believe that each new mother should share with the next slew of baby boomer contributors. Sure the obvious suggestions of eating healthy, getting rest and keeping an active lifestyle are all great pieces of advice, but when the pregnancy glow has faded and the maternity clothes find their way to the back of the closet there is a time that every new mom ask the infamous question “Why didn’t someone warn me?”

Although we all know our share of expecting mothers, there was no bigger surprise to the hip-hop community than the revelation of your pregnancy Mrs. Carter. I presume it is only fair to presume that you are the head baby bump in charge these days seeing as you exposed your pregnancy on a nationally syndicated television program, the MTV Music Awards, in front of over a million viewers.

We, your fans and all of America, have watched you grow into a budding business woman and a remarkable performer. I mean honestly girl, the things you do in heels I can’t do barefoot, but parenthood will be a challenge that even you may struggle with at times. We all know that Solange and Momma Knowles will have your back but for the little things that they may miss you can find in this list of five things you, and all other expecting mothers, should know about before becoming a new mommy.

First things first:

    Thank goodness I’m not trying to be a Mom! ^_^   I make sure I drink my ginkgo biloba gingseng mix every month, in addition to using aloe vera, neem oil, mahogany bark, cat’s claw, St. John’s Wort (red flowers), etc. & taking a test to make sure there aren’t any surprises. Praise to everyone who goes for motherhood!

    Breastfeed for as long as you can. I know you're busy, but pumped milk is good too. Don't beat yourself up about it if it doesn't work, but give it a try. It's the best food you can give an infant – ever.

    I don't really agree with the advice about not letting baby sleep in bed with you. We co-slept with our twins for the first few months (it helped tremendously with those midnight breastfeeding sessions), then began putting them in a co-sleeper bassinet that attached to our bed, now they're in their own crib in another room. I see no need to force an infant to sleep on it's own fresh out of the womb.
