Carrying a little one inside your belly can change your life in many ways! One of the big questions pregnant women ask is this: “What about traveling while I’m pregnant?”

While you’ll notice a change in your breasts, the urge to start nesting, and maybe even pregnancy brain, to everyone else, the clearest sign that you’re expecting a little one is your pregnant belly!

Since you’re tuned in to all things baby right now, you’ve no doubt noticed the size and shape of your pregnant friends’ bellies and wondered about your own.

Just like our bodies, pregnant tummies come in all shapes and sizes, but you probably still have questions.

Whether you just found out you’re pregnant or your due date is any day now, a pregnancy pillow is a great addition to your nighttime routine.

You can even use a pregnancy pillow after your little one arrives to support your body as it recovers and help with breastfeeding and other postpartum activities.

Which pregnancy pillow is right for you? We can help with that!

Baby showers are a time to celebrate the little one on the way and give special (and needed!) gifts to the mom-to-be. But whether you’re hosting a baby shower, attending, or are the expecting mom, you probably have baby shower etiquette questions.

No matter your role at the upcoming shower, the Newton Baby experts are here to answer your questions. We’ll cover basic etiquette rules for the host or hostess, the mom-to-be, and the guest.

During pregnancy, your body goes through tons of changes! There are the obvious physical changes, but you might also notice changes in your memory or thinking and start to observe what many women call “pregnancy brain.”

But what exactly is “pregnancy brain?” And is it fact or fiction? Is it a real part of pregnancy or just a good excuse for when you can’t find your phone?

We’re here to answer those questions! 

Once you get toward the end of your nine months of pregnancy, you might find yourself constantly in the mood to organize, clean, and arrange the nursery. This is what many people call nesting, and it’s quite common!

Some people think nesting is a built-in maternal instinct while others aren’t so sure. Either way, many pregnant moms turn into busy bees in the last trimester of pregnancy.

If this is you and you’re wondering what exactly nesting is and how to use that urge to your advantage, you’re in the right place.
With delivery day getting closer, you’re busy putting the final touches on the nursery and preparing to meet your little one! One of the things you’ll want to do toward the end of your third trimester is get your hospital bag ready to go. A hospital bag checklist can help!

Here at Newton Baby, we’ve created an extensive list to give you an idea of the things you’ll need. It includes the must-have as well as a few items that might not have occurred to you but will make your hospital stay more comfortable for everyone involved.
