What is the advice you give to new parents?

I tell them to play music as baby sleeps. We did this with our kids. They are now 6 and 8. I can put that music on anytime anyday and they get suddenly sleepy. I have never had to fight them to bed either.

  • trust your instincts! the baby will let you know what they want and when but if youre still confused....listen to your gut!

  • i say to spend as much time together as you can. leave the baby with a sitter - you NEED that time together. my hubby and i went out for the first time alone 2 months after my son was born, and it seemed like two months too long!

  • My best advice is to pay attention to your baby's cues b/c they know exactly what they need and when they need it. We have a very well adjusted toddler b/c we have payed attention to her cues. Although she leads a very structured life it is the structure that she has led us to.
