Disclosure – this is a collaborative post.

Moving day is one of the most stressful things we can ever undergo. Add into the mix carrying a child, and it may seem like a major pressure on us. But, when you are faced with the task of moving, it’s important to know the best ways to make your move as easy, and, more importantly, as safe as possible. What do you need to know?

Get More Help

You may already know the value of a support network in an emotional sense, but if you are one of those people that’s too proud to ask for help or you think you can do everything, you’ve got to think about the baby. It’s the most important piece of advice you can ever receive, especially if you are trying to save money. You may even think that you can handle the move without a service provider. But, providers like Bekins Moving Solution can help. Ultimately, you have got to be safe and efficient. As well as this, you could book cleaners by the hour as well as organisers so you can declutter the place.

Speak To Your Doctor

You need to check that it’s okay for you to take part in moving, even if it’s a simple task like lifting a couple of small boxes. Because if you are closely monitored, it’s not a good idea for you to get involved at all! Again, you’ve got to think about the health of your baby. You may think that you feel okay, but things very easily go south quickly if you overdo it. There are guidelines on the amount of weight you should carry depending on how far along you are. Use this to see how much you should really lifting.

Give Yourself More Time To Pack

The more time you have, the more breaks you can give yourself. It’s important to take a rest roughly every 30 minutes. You need to make sure that the blood is flowing. Take the opportunity to put your feet up to benefit circulation. If you are standing up for too long, you may have issues with your extremities swelling up. When possible, sit down and pack.

Make A List

The dreaded baby brain could make life frustrating for any of us. It’s so easy to lose track of the things that need doing, so make sure that you write lists, and use a calendar, so you know no exactly what needs doing. There are plenty of apps out there that can help you with this. Unfortunately, that dreaded baby brain will strike whenever it feels like!

Get A Moving Day Kit

Think about snacks, water, as well as an overnight bag and phone charger. You also need something to sit on whenever you need a rest. And a little moving day kit wouldn’t be complete without toilet paper. You know how many times you need to go to the toilet during the course of the day!

Moving day is stressful, but you shouldn’t put any more pressure upon yourself. Your priority is the baby and yourself. Moving day will be finished sooner than you know it, and then you can properly relax.
