  • You have to let them grow, show them the way but don't do it for them....

    I always say don't sweat the small stuff.

    If they clean their room, and it is picked up then don't sweat the dresser being a little messy as long as the clean clothes are in the laundry. Why argue if you don't have too!!!

  • i liked...put your baby to the breast every time he is awake.
    i liked go ahead and take off your shirt and bra to breastfeed, then your clothes won't get in the way.
    i liked ( even though i didn't follow it until child # 5) when people ask what they can do to help, tell them!

  • other than the normal stuff that they always tell you. The best tip I got was if it is only a pee diaper stick the new one under the old one before opening the wet one. Then pull the old one open and off as quick as you can with on hand while closing the fresh one with your other hand. It isn't as easy to explain on her as it would to say or show. But if you figure it out you will never get peed on.
