Main reasons why you would want to reconsider having a baby in your twenties
1. Lack of sleep
Being sleep deprived is actually no joke. After I first gave birth to my daughter, I figured out I was going to be forced to say goodbye to sleep. Especially for the first three months. I got sleep approximately every other two hours due to the fact that she’s breastfed. That made things highly uncomfortable for me personally.
This certainly will drive you up a wall. Typically you simply will not know the reason for the crying. If you’re aggravated easily then a baby is not for you. Especially not at the moment since you’re currently not tolerable to things of that kind as of yet.
3. Constant demand for attention
Babies are a whole lot of work. They require loads of attention, mostly in the beginning. If you’re not willing to give just about all your undivided attention to your little one then that’s a sign that you’re not ready.
Babies are extremely touchy-feely. They pull on, yank, and grab on any and everything as they desire. If you’re not totally prepared to put away all of your valuables then please do not prepare to have unprotected sex and have a baby.
Babies are very gentle & fragile. They can get sick easily as a result of their immature immune system. The only thing attempting to protect your baby are antibodies a.k.a immunoglobulins. These are created by plasma cells and memory B cells. They help guard the body from infections by pinpointing and neutralizing the virus or bacteria by physically attaching to it. At birth a good number of the antibodies in the baby come from the mother in the form of IgG – the only form that crosses the placenta from mother to child.
The older the baby becomes the more mature his/her immune system will get. So this could mean that you may be spending a lot of your time at the hospital or the local doctor’s office. If you’re not prepared for hospital visits or long hours at the doctor’s office then please wait on having a baby.
