Babymoons are all the rage right now! What is a babymoon, you ask? A babymoon is a vacation taken by a couple that is expecting a baby in order to allow the couple to enjoy a final trip together before the many sleepless nights that usually accompany a newborn baby.

Parents-to-be or couples that are trying to get pregnant are now flocking to resorts, beaches and getaway spots for a “one last trip” before their family of two becomes three!

Here are some excellent reasons for you to consider a babymoon!

----- A babymoon offers the mom and dad-to-be some rest, relaxation and pampering. This is an excellent time before the baby comes to enjoy sleeping in, pampering yourself with spa treatments, lounging by the pool, or reading a book on the beach. Pretty soon, your vacations will be action packed with feeding and caring for a baby, and eventually, chasing a toddler around. So enjoy the calm and serenity while you can!

----- A babymoon is an excellent way to enjoy one-on-one time with your significant other before your family expands. Use your babymoon as a time to talk to your spouse about apprehensions, excitement and anxieties you both have about becoming parents. Talking to one another will only help you feel closer. But don’t make it all about baby! Be sure your time is also spent on laughing and enjoying each other’s company! Make periods of time where there is no “baby talk” allowed.

----- A babymoon is also your chance to take a break from all the planning that comes when you are expecting a baby! Stop all the talk about registering, picking out nursery furniture, deciding on names, and cleaning out your house to make room for one more…and just enjoy yourselves. No planning allowed on your babymoon!

----- Many travel companies now specialize in babymoon packages, so do your research and you may be able to find an incredible deal! Going someplace you have never been or back to an old favorite getaway spot can rejuvenate you during the last few months of your pregnancy…so start looking for babymoon deals now!

From all of us at Pure and Honest Kids, Happy Babymoon!
