Give it all here!


My number one piece of advice is to go with the flow. You don't have to conform to anyone's parenting style, just go with it.

Your purse will become your diaper bag, or vice versa. Give up carrying both. For your own sanity.

Just breathe and don't over think things! If it works for your family do it.

Take a bath with your baby. No sexual connotations here, but I learned that the warm bath and skin to skin contact did a lot to calm my babies. I bathed my little ones with me for at least their first 2 months. Nothing better in this world than soaking in a warm steamy bath with your baby on your chest.

If you feel yourself getting worked up, walk away. We tend to snap at our children or partners when we become parents after holding things in for a while.
Also, routines matter. Start them early.
