  • Babies cry, relax, don't live and die by milestones written in baby books or set by other competitive crazy moms. Do what feels right, you know your child better than anyone else.

  • That you will make a mistake..sometimes a few of them but that your child will forgive you. Like cutting a nail too short, not recognizing it was an ear infection, diaper was too tight. They will love you in-spite of all that.

  • Follow your instincts and don't listen so much to what other people say. Only listen to those who have your best interest at heart.
