  2. Less is more when it comes to gadgets for newborns. As they get older, then you will figure out what you need for them but when they are coming home, you only need a few things to get by so don't stress about getting all the right things!

  3. My biggest tip for a new mom is just to relax. It seems impossible at first, but everything will fall into place! In a few months they will be a pro at it! And for moms with toddlers (I am at this stage with my little one now), I would say don't be afraid to put the housework and responsibilities aside and just enjoy your toddler. This is the most fun age! Sit and build blocks, read books, and make messes with sensory play. Enjoy each other! :)

  4. My tip for a new mom is to ask for, and take help, when offered. No harder (or more rewarding) job in the world. Nobody knows everything, it all comes in time.

  5. I don't have a baby of my own but I have lots of nieces, nephews and little cousins and one thing I can say for new moms is, take all the rest you can get. If you're offered help, take it because your nights are going to be filled with lots of breast or bottle feeding. You're going to have lots of late nights so take all the help you can get during the day.

  6. I'm a first time mom myself so I do not have personal advice, but I loved to read the advise above!

    ReplyDelete
  7. For first time mothers I would say, try to enjoy them when they are small because hey don't stay that way long. It will get tough but as my grandmother would say (and I would say this during tough times) " This too shall pass"'

  8. less is more, be PATIENT, do not let them talk back to any adult at any time, do not let them give attitude or smart mouth to anyone it creates bad habit, do not laugh at bad behavior if they think its funny they will continue the bad behavior, always show them love, always hug kiss and tell you love them multiple times a day, keep them safe but don't be creepy about it, punish bad behavior

  9. A new mom shouldn't be afraid to ask for help when she needs it. Also, it is YOUR baby so do what YOU feel is right for the baby. If someone gives you advice on something that's great, but it doesn't always mean they're right. Trust you motherly intuition.

  13. Awwww... I wish I could enter. This looks fabulous and I know of a soon-to-be-mama who would go crazy over this.

    Great prize for whoever wins!

    Wishing you a lovely day.
    xoxo

  14. Don't go crazy with clothing buying your kids will out grow them before they can wear all of them once, new moms should buy about 8-10 outfits for each stage anything more and it would be a waste.

    ReplyDelete
  15. My best tip is to relax and enjoy your kids - they grow up so fast.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm a first time mom myself (due in July) and looking for all the tips I can get!

  17. Don't try to raise the perfect kid.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Advice I wish people would have given me when i was a FTM: Do NOT go all out with pink or blue stuff. You never know what gender your next one will be! I went all out with pink when I had my daughter, and guess what? Now I'm pregnant with a boy, and have nothing. lol oops. =\

    ReplyDelete
  19. Try to slow down. It's busy and it goes by fast even though it doesn't feel like it. Don't be forever looking to the next milestone and miss what's happening right now.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm about to be a new mom, so I come to this blog for advice from others for now!

  24. Most important is when it gets hard dealing with problems arise (like discipline, or potty training), hang in there, it gets better!

    ReplyDelete
  25. My advice is have patience and lots of it. and enjoy every moment of them being young

    ReplyDelete
  26. My tip is to enjoy and savor every single moment. Every Mom will tell you it flies by, but it's hard to grasp how true it is until you experience it

  28. Trust your intuition. Ask for help when you need it. Enjoy being a mommy to your very first newborn-there is nothing like your first baby. If you decide to have more you will be so busy with two, its just a different animal.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Have patience with them, cherish every moment they grow up so so fast!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think the best advice is to keep a schedule. It sets a patterned is easy for everyone.

  33. I had twins and both are little Momma's themselves now and my biggest advice to them was RELAX,take things with ease and trust with all that your heart can muster and you will know what your infant needs.Also, is enjoy each second,each moment,because before you know it,they will be all grown as you are and lastly,get outdoors and enjoy the outdoors!!!

  34. It's been 28 years ago since I had a child so things have changed. Now I am having all sorts of young relatives having babies and would love to win something for one of them. I would tell new mothers to share their stories and get tips from other mothers on ideas that have been tried and worked.

    ReplyDelete
  35. my tip for new parents is to do what you feel is right. try to take everyones advice with a grain of salt. go with your instincts, even if that means going against the grain.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would say for new parents, sleep when baby sleeps. Toddlers, take time and play with them and dont think the house needs to be clean.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Enjoy everyday they will only be little once. I try to laugh off most of the things my toddler says and does unless he is hurting himself.

    ReplyDelete
  38. my tip for first time mom's is relax and trust yourself. You don't need to listen to all the advice given this is your baby and you will know whats best for you and your child

    ReplyDelete
  39. My tip for a first time mom is relax! Newborns are a lot of work. Housework can wait. You and the baby need to come first.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I know one tip I appreciated was when people offered to help in some way. You don't know it but whatever they do will help more than you realize. Unless it's a very important event or milestone, that you don't want to miss,let them help :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Patiance. Learn to relax every moment you have to yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  42. React when your baby first started getting upset. Once they start crying it's much harder to calm them down.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Stay calm. Everything will be okay. Nobody's perfect and you're doing great.

    ReplyDelete
  44. My number one tip for toddlers is: think like a toddler! If it's breakable, they will break it! If the toilet seat is up, they will attempt to flush your expensive jewerly. If it's in reach, they WILL find a way to ruin it ;)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm a mom of 3 and I'm still learning! lol Love reading through all of these great tips :) The one I can give would have to be to not push your children into something if they're not ready for it! As moms we get excited about our children hitting their milestones but remember they are only babies once.. cherish this time and love them unconditionally <3

    ReplyDelete
  47. You must have patience and lots of it!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Be very patient, time passes quickly and the phase they are in passes.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Use gripe water! I never knew about Gripe water to treat babies with gas pains or teething but I sware it is like magic and much more gentle then the other products. I use Mothers Bliss.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Always remember to breathe. That one helped me a great deal and still does.
