When our first baby showed up, we were not ready. The room wasn't ready, we didn't have the right supplies, we hadn't picked a name and we were not mentally prepared. The main goal of this website is to help you pick a baby name, but it seems like some general advice/ideas would be helpful, too.
Here are some future topics. I will activate these links as the pages get written.
Do you have any other suggestions? Please comment below.
Also, you may have found out that everybody has advice for you - whether they tell you or not. The most important thing is for you to trust your instincts (assuming you are a good person). But, the second most important thing is to keep an open mind and be receptive to others (your partner, your kid, your peers, and some experts). Billions of people have done this before you, so be prepared to do some learning - it can be a wild ride.
