A Dad’s Guide To Parenting Your Newborn

Thursday, March 19th, 2020

Parenting a newborn can be one of the biggest challenges for first-time dads. Newborns have many needs and wants that are unique to that specific stage in their lives. As such, parents should be well aware of some tips and tricks that can help them succeed in their parenting journey. Let’s face it: moms have that indescribable maternal instinct that helps them look after their children. Dads, on the other hand, are likely to need a bit more prep to make their parenting journey as smooth as possible.

Fortunately, many helpful resources like Myparentingjournal exist to help us with our parenting concerns. For some parents, looking after a newborn is a delicate task that feels overwhelming and confusing. These resources make the challenges of raising a kid a bit more manageable. Check out the website if you want to learn helpful tips, tricks, and advice. If you’re a new dad, here are four tips you can start with.

Check In On Your Baby’s Sleeping Patterns:

Making sure that your baby regularly sleeps through the night is important. After all, a well-rested newborn is a happy newborn. Look for a crib that has newborn-friendly features and is comfortable and accessible.

If you can oversee how how your baby sleeps even if it’s just for the first several nights, that would be optimal. This will let you identify potential issues like breathing problems early on. Parenting a newborn takes a lot of work and in safeguarding the quality of their sleep, you’re likely going to end up being sleep-deprived yourself. But the end result, of course, will always be worth it.

Help Them Eat Right:

Proper nutrition is a must for babies. Supervising a newborn’s diet and nutrition will involve strict feeding schedules. That said, try to stay as consistent as possible. Being on the dot is indeed challenging, but parenting a newborn can be fun as feeding time can lead to great bonding experiences.

Beware Of Cranky Babies:

Babies can get really cranky at certain times of the day — there’s simply no avoiding it. While cries for food or comfort are normal, crankiness can sometimes be a symptom of something more serious.

If you think your newborn is crying at an alarming frequency, talk to your doctor about it. Colic is fairly common in newborn babies and though it may be frustrating, it can be managed in a number of ways. For one, you can try to use a soothing balm to help calm your baby. Again, if you’ve tried a bunch of things and they just fail to work, connecting with youtr pediatrician for advice is recommended.

Anticipate The Costs

Caring for a newborn can be expensive. Babies need constant care and supervision, plus the cost of milk, vitamins, diapers, and other baby stuff like cribs, tubs, and bottles can easily pile up. If you are working parents and decide to hire a night nurse or a nanny, that could add to the costs, too.

With that being said, anticipating the costs that come with raising a newborn will be extremely helpful. While insurance may take care of hospital and medical expenses, expenditures for clothing, toys, and other implements are usually out-of-pocket.

As with anything else in life, preparation is key. Do everything you can do to make sure that you’re ready financially, physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Parenting a newborn is no joke, and there’s really no shame in asking for help. For now, start reading trustworthy parenting resources to equip yourself with helpful knowledge and expert insight. Discuss arrangements and divide shifts and responsibilities with your partner. Also, don’t forget to relax and breathe. You got this!

How Household Utensils Can Help Find Love in the Future

Tuesday, August 13th, 2019

Do home appliances know all the details about you? Perhaps it is so if we are talking about smart devices. Kettles connected with refrigerators and wrist watches are already transforming our homes and will soon be able to transform our personal lives. But how?

According to the new report of the famous business school, the way we get involved in international dating and meet potential soulmates will change over the next twenty years. All this is thanks to smart home appliances. Referring to this report, information obtained from devices, such as smart wardrobes, showers, refrigerators, and watches, can be used to match us with our potential soulmates. The data from these devices will tell us a lot more about ourselves than we ever knew before. Instead of relying on self-esteem, smart devices will be able to objectively record data about our personality, preferences, and behavior. For example, a smart shower can say a lot about our hygiene, which strongly corresponds to the level of our consciousness and organization. The understanding of “acceptable” and “good” hygiene is different for each person, which can lead to romantic inconsistencies. By the way, a smart wardrobe can reveal a lot about our style. According to experts, the style of clothing is a very accurate and detailed reflection of a person’s personality.

At the same time, smart utensils such as refrigerators, microwaves, electric kettles, and other kitchen devices will be able to provide information about our diet, nutrition, and even spontaneity when choosing or cooking food. All these factors can be compared with information about other people in order to find the most appropriate person. Smart showers can become the norm by 2022, smart wardrobes – by 2023, and by 2028, our whole house will be “smart”, including toasters. Similarly, in the near future, smart clothes and smart lenses will help control our most complex behaviors and habits. Other home appliances, such as smart TVs, can use data from TV and film preferences, which will then be a key indicator in relationship compatibility.

One of the most popular dating sites has invested more than 18 years in determining what factors can help build healthy and successful relationships. Very soon, any additional opportunities provided by smart technologies can help bridge the gap in understanding between people. According to its experts, almost 7 billion devices are now connected worldwide.

Moreover, in the future, two smartphones, matching the social parameters of people, will send each other photographs of the owners, smart glasses will find suitable people by DNA, a special program will show future parents what appearance their children may have, and many more things will be available. In addition, there will be no dating as such because smartphones will give out all the information about a person.

By 2029, ladies will be able to determine the probability of a breakup with a very high percentage of accuracy from the very first meeting. It means that men who are not going to have serious relationships and create a family must be ready for this and invent tricks in advance. Also, scientific computer compatibility programs will be invented. Programmers will provide the classification of factors that can ruin our future marriage. It will include income, interests, religion, worldview, physical attractiveness, and so on. Analyzing these factors, people in love will be able to minimize the risks of a breakup. So, as you can see, smart devices and gadgets can help us make a relationship better.

Trends in Male Wedding Fashion

Monday, May 27th, 2019

Marc Jacobs’ wedding this year to long-time boyfriend Char Defrancesco arguably marked a watershed in male wedding fashion history. If in the past, it was all about ‘saying yes to the dress’, these days, the groom’s outfit is just as an important – which makes sense considering that fashion is either Instagrammable or it isn’t really fashion. For this stunning celebrity-studded wedding, Char opted for an emerald green velvet tuxedo with accompanying bowtie, while the top-selling designer wore a more ‘serious’ dark green suit with a pale grey Windsor knot tie, cream patent leather shoes, and one feature that lent his outfit just a touch of magic: a single lily pinned to his lapel. The way the two outfits combined was testimony to the modern penchant for looks that complement, rather than match each other. What other trends are big for grooms this year?

It Starts with the Ring

As mentioned above, men’s wedding fashion is growing in importance, and this means paying more attention than to just the suit. The ring – a symbol that both bride and groom will cling to for a lifetime - is now expected to be an expression of a groom’s creativity, lifestyle, and taste. Instead of the stock simply yellow gold band, unique men’s wedding bands are gaining ground. New materials like wood, titanium, and palladium are making their presence felt. Some men (see Ryan Reynolds) are opting for wide, fashionable wedding bands that ooze sartorial flair. Others are opting to stack rings, or choosing rings made in mixed metals (think yellow, rose, and white gold or platinum).

Going against the Grain

It’s your wedding so why not dress in materials that are stylish and comfortable? When French designer Etienne Deroeux (who has shone in New York, Milan, London and Paris) got married recently, he remained true to his passion for active, urban looks by totally foregoing a tie and opting instead for an Indian collared top, worn beneath a simple dark blue one-button jacket and slim fitting trousers, coupled with camper-style outdoor shoes. The simplicity of his outfit went beautifully with his bride (Rae Boxer’s) spaghetti strap dress, which was in white silk and devoid of all traditional embellishments such as beading, lace, and embroidery.

Express Yourself

At socialite Amanda Jones’ recent wedding to Kevin Vaughan, the groom showed fashionistas how ‘new traditional’ is done. He wore a black tuxedo with slim fit, ankle-length trousers and gorgeous black suede slip-on shoes. His jacket had just one, low button and satin labels, which complement his two-toned shoes (in black and grey) to sweet perfection. His outfit went perfectly with his wife’s ultra glam yet classical gown, while paying perfect heed to current trends in terms of cut and jacket choice.

Stars in Your Eyes, Stripes on Your Suit

When fashion designer Victor Glemaud married his diplomat fianceé, both wore striped suits – but in totally different styles. Victor opted for a cobalt one-button suit with wide blue stripes, paired with a baby pink top and a tie in the same color. His fiancée went for a more serious pin-striped suit in navy blue with a raspberry-hued tie that complemented Glemaud’s pink looks to perfection.

It is a unique time in men’s wedding fashion; one in which a groom can really show off his passion for style and fashion. From unique wedding rings to casual tops, velvet jackets, and brightly colored outfits, there are many ways to take a leap away from the expected. Before making your decision, check out the choices made by your favorite celebrities and find the inspiration you may be looking for.

Great Fashion and Style Ideas for Men – Menswear Tips

Monday, July 9th, 2018

Every year comes with new fashion trends in the market. Men’s fashion is always changing but you don’t necessarily need to stay on top of the latest trends to be fashionable. There are many styles out there, some never get old, other newly created just don’t make the cut, and another bunch of really old fashion styles get recycled. If you want to see the best menswear, check it out here. Here are some tips:

The first and most important tip is having self-confidence

A big part of style actually depends on you having a confident attitude. Self-confidence not only helps you make a good impression while engaging with society but it also shows what you stand for. This means that when you have a sync between your confidence and your clothes, nothing can stop you. You can start building off your confidence by making more eye contact and mastering the art of posing.

You need to improve your footwear

Time for wearing running shoes all the time is over. You need to expand your horizon. The reason for this is simple: as of today (after many centuries), people still judge a man by his shoes. Society still measures the man’s worth and social status by the shoes he wears. That is why spending good money on a pair of high-quality classic shoes is an excellent investment. For instance, you can buy some leather boho bags. Find the right pair for you and start looking as sharp as you can.

Always wear slim fit clothes

Nailing the fit is a must when building up your fashion sense. It might be okay to wear comfy clothes at home, but outside, slim fit clothes define you. In the hierarchy of fashion tips, having a wardrobe of perfect fit clothes is nearly at the top even surpassing things like fabric material.

Have a perfect-fitted suit

A suit is the ultimate fashion item. To be fashionable, you will need to wear at some point a suit. So, if you need to buy one, make sure you get a classic suit. This means that you have to take into account things like notch lapels, consistent stitching, fitting standards, fabric material, etc. If you get a sweet deal for a suit off-the-rack, chances are that it won’t fit you perfectly, so take the time to have it adjusted. Finally, bear in mind that the suit you buy has to match the shoe color that you have at home, so no bright color suits.

No more T-shirts or Hoodies

Lastly, do not wear any T-shirts or Hoodies to go outside with friends or to dates, it is not fashionable any more. You may keep a safe amount at home for indoor activities or to go to the gym. But you must prioritize having casual button-downs or the longtime favorite long-sleeved sweaters. If you still want to wear some shirts, it’s the time to switch to Polo shirts.

Think about these tip and how they can help you improve your fashion style and wardrobe. Be brave and try new things, don’t follow fashion trends, just stick to your own and you will do just fine.

Bearded Times: How Facial Hair Is Back On The Agenda

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Throughout time, facial hair has been a point of major contention for men and women alike. What is the purpose? Will I look better with or without it? Will I be more attractive to the opposite sex if I grow a beard? Whatever your personal opinion, there has never been a time, certainly in the modern era, when facial hair has been so popular, with only 43% of Americans shaving daily.

Despite this surprising statistic, it is also important to remember that under your stylized facial fuzz, there is another very important asset – your skin. With facial hair back for good, how can you look after your skin, whilst also maintaining a trendy beard too?

Looking After Skin and Beard

If we are being honest, the rise of the beard has been around for quite some time. All of the major skincare companies and chains have some form of beard styling, grooming or waxing product to assist those looking to maintain a beautiful beard. Maintaining one’s beard is almost as important as having cool fashion accessories, such as a leather wallet or a trendy hat. However, time has shown us that lathering one’s facial hair in wax or hair products, can have a detrimental knock-on effect on your skin underneath. Some products can cause irritation to the skin, causing it to be dry and become itchy. This is not a good look for anybody.

Luckily, the market is changing and adapting to products that can do a great job for your beard, as well as your all important skin underneath. Companies are fast cottoning on to the fact, that products need to be more diverse in order to provide adequate skin and hair care at the same time.

What To Look Out For

Pineapple juice is being widely used in new beard creams as it can be extremely beneficial. There are lots of enzymes in their that can remove oil and everyday dirt, as well as cleanse that all important skin. In addition, look out for products that contain jojoba oil and cupuacu butter. These products help to soften that often wiry hair in a beard, giving it a fresh style and making it easier to manage. Almond oil is also being used in beard and face products as it is soft on skin, while providing softness and sheen for your beard.

If you are part of the new wave of beard owners, or are thinking of joining the club, make sure you choose your products wisely and take care of your face and beard thoroughly.
