This month's submission comes from Juliana (@jlo923) via Instagram. Her newborn baby Asher is less than a month old and what better way for her Hubby to celebrate Father's Day than to welcome home this bundle of joy! Juliana was kind enough to share some photos of Asher and also share a few thoughts on what her experience has been like being a new parent so far!
Can you give us a brief intro about your family and where you are from?
@jlo923: I am originally from Toronto, Canada, and now live in Hong Kong with my husband and our newborn Asher!
TWB: What The Wee Bean items did you buy/get gifted and how do you like our products?
@jlo923: We have three swaddles (Dimsum, Boba, Gem Biscuit) and two bibs (Egg Tart, Milk Tea). I love how soft and light the material is and the HK iconic food is definitely super cute!!
TWB: What items do you recommend for first-time moms?
I’d highly recommend the swaddles for first-time moms. It’s so multifunctional - great to wrap babies in, use as a blanket, or line any surface such as loungers, sofas, car seats, etc.
TWB: What's your favorite activity to do with your baby?
@jlo923: My baby is only 2-weeks old so too young to do much right now but family nap times together are great!
TWB: Best baby-friendly places to go to in your city?
@jlo923: I'll have to get back to you on that as I'm still in confinement!
TWB: What's one tip you have for all the new mommies/daddies out there?
jlo923:Surround yourself with a good support network of fellow moms... they can be a good source for information but also emotional and psychological support. It’s so stressful and hard being a new mom but it’s important to know that we’re not alone. Other moms are always willing to share tricks to help make the journey a little easier :)
Thanks again to Juliana and her family for being a part of our community and for sharing her thoughts so soon after giving birth!
