Savvy - "Knowledge; the ability to make good judgments."
Everyday, you make informed choices. You gather the knowledge you need to become savvy about your options and make the best choice based on the information you have gathered. From which color tile to put in your kitchen to whats the best soap to use on your baby's skin to where to go for dinner for date night; all these decisions require you to make the best judgement call you can. Some decisions you spend a few minutes deciding while others take some time as you weigh the risks and benefits, your preferences, and whats safe.
Your child's birth should be no exception. You have decisions to make. What will your baby's name be? What color will you paint Baby's room? Will you co-sleep? Breast or formula? Disposable diapers or cloth?
Some people start thinking about these decisions before they are pregnant. Some begin the moment they find out while other's are in their 39th week of pregnancy and still haven't packed their bag for the hospital. No matter which category you fall into, you will give birth to a beautiful baby at some point and before Baby can even enjoy the awesome paint job you did, you will deliver your child into this world.
