The day of the birth of our baby is very special, and many parents keep some memorabilia from that day.
The birth of a baby is one of the most important moments in a parent’s life. Of that birth, as well as the moment of delivery in particular, they will keep a great amount of memories that will never be erased from their minds. For example, they will remember how the baby began to cry for the first time, all the hours that the delivery lasted , or each one of the minutiae that, at that crucial moment, seemed the biggest problem in the world.
Yes, it is true that it is not necessary to save any physical detail so that those memories remain forever in the memory of both the father and the mother (especially the latter); But despite that, we all like to have something that brings back memories of the birth of our baby. If your due date is approaching and you have not yet decided what you want to keep as a souvenir, or what you want your baby to see tomorrow of the day of his birth, here are a few ideas for you make the choice more enjoyable.
THE FORCEPS THAT HOLD THE UMBILICAL CORD, ONE OF THE FAVORITE MEMORIES
One of the favorite memories of all parents, and which, according to them, transports them directly to the day of delivery, are the clamps that hold the baby’s umbilical cord when it is just a newborn . Whoever has not been a father may see this object as something unsightly, not very pleasant, and perhaps he will not understand how it is that there are those who carry it as if it were a key ring. But surely parents will wear it with all the pride in the world, because it is one more memory of the birth of their baby.
There are two options for keeping these clamps: there are those who choose to leave the piece of cord that later also falls off hooked, and those who prefer to clean it . In either case, it is true that it is one of the most commemorative memories of that moment. If you choose to also keep the piece of umbilical cord, you will have to find out what preservation methods may be the best, so that you do not end up also throwing away the tweezers, disgusted.
YOUR FIRST CLOTHES OR PACIFIER
If you are not very fond of the umbilical cord clamp, perhaps because I seem somewhat ugly, you can also choose to previously select the first clothes that you will put on your baby . You can choose a pajama or a special, personalized suit, and thus, once the baby has stopped using it, you can keep it as a souvenir. The fundamental difference between the clothespin and the baby’s first clothes is that the first will be something much more significant, but the second will be much more personal, because it will be something that you have previously prepared. Not only will it be your baby’s first clothes, but it will also be the first thing you decided to wear.
In addition to storing clothes, you can also store the pacifier that your baby uses for the first time, if he ever uses it. This is a memory that is also usually very well received by fathers and mothers, and that some end up also using as a keychain, just like they do with tweezers. It is much more aesthetic … Depending on the treatment that the baby has given the pacifier , of course.
THE COVER OF THE NEWSPAPER OF THAT DAY, A GOOD OPTION
Something that is usually done less, especially in recent times, is to save the cover of the newspaper on the day of delivery . It is a good memory, since the baby will be able to see, when he is older, what exactly happened in the world on the day he was born . It would be even more interesting to take several different newspapers, and even the odd magazine, to fill a small book with everything that was fashionable or with everything that happened during that day. That will be a good memory of the birth of a son or daughter, something that even they will appreciate when they grow up.
There are many more alternatives, as many memories as people . For example, there are those who choose to keep the blanket that sheltered the baby for the first time, or who prefer to simply take a picture, print it, and let that be the only memory. We have given you here a few alternatives so that now you can choose the one you like the most. And to enjoy the day of delivery the best you can!
