What are These Lessons For? Bun in the Oven Lessons are made especially for couples expecting their first child! They could easily be adapted by those who are already have children for another pregnancy! How Often do we do a Lesson? There are 40 lessons, one for each week of pregnancy. Ideally you would do one lesson a week. Obviously you cannot find out you are pregnant for a couple weeks, so if you find this a little later double up on lessons until you catch up!
What are the Lessons About? There is a lot to do to prepare for a baby to come! Sometimes things get overlooked, these lessons bring up different topics you can talk about to help you both get ready to be parents! They are about everything from talking about Finances, Diapers, Traditions you want to have, and everything in between!
Perfect for FHE! It is suggested that we have Family Home Evening once a week to help strengthen our families! It is also a great time to talk and learn more about the gospel. While you are waiting for your bundle of joy to come these lessons are perfect to use as FHE lessons for the two of you! These weekly lessons do not always talk about gospel topics, but they can really help you grow together and get ready to raise your family! It is also great to get in the habit of having FHE every week so once your little one comes home you are already doing it!
What is Included in Each Lesson?
Main Topic Each week there will be one main topic, this is what the rest of the lesson will be based on.
Advice Advice found from different resources - which you can choose to agree or not agree with! For example one week the main topic will be on diapers. There will be advice from both cloth diaper and disposable diapers.
Discussion Points After you read the advice there will be a couple discussion points you and your spouse can talk about. Sometimes in marriages one of the biggest struggles is communication. By talking about all these things and being on the same page before the baby comes you can reduce some conflict and make the transition of bringing a child into your family a little easier.
Activity Each week you will have a little activity to do with each other. They are small things you can do that help keep the spark there between the two of you! Working on your relationship with each other helps you to be better parents.
Goal There will be one goal each week for you to do during that week. Some weeks the goal will go along with the main topic, and other weeks it might just be kind of a random thing for you to do, to help get ready for the baby to come! Doing something small every week will help reduce the stress towards the end to get everything done!
