  • My advice would be to love them as much as possible. They are only little once and you don't get a chance to redo that snuggle time. Also, read read read!!!! Read to your little ones. It will help them educationally in their future!!!

  • It's never as bad as it seems to be....it could always be worse no matter what the situation is. Also, pick and choose your battles. Best wishes.

  • Get your baby on a bed time routine nightly as soon as you can, usually around 3 months, it will make your life and their life easier as infants, toddlers and young school age children.

  • Know your limits. If you can't do something, don't. Never put your child at risk because "everyone" says you have to do whatever it is they think you should do.
