I don't think my mother has ever given me advice.

1 mom liked this

"You might not feel like you're over-the-moon in love with your baby at first. Don't feel bad.. it will come to you soon enough and it doesn't make you a bad mom"

So true. I didnt feel that immediate bond with my first baby, I felt like I was on autopilot for the first week or two and then it hit me like a ton of bricks. I love him so much!!

That's a great one. We really focus on making memories. Whether it's a fun time a meal that turned disaster. It's logged into our memories with laughs.

Nothing my mom told me. Just the example she set in loving my dad no matter what. being 100% committed to him and their marriage even when she could have walked away. And just the way she lived her life.

She and I have a lot of differing opinions but I think the best piece of advice she gave me was swaddling. It has soothed almost every baby I have ran across.
