Sadie’s Good Advice:
Instead of getting angry, take a picture.
You find what you look for. If you’re looking for the negative, you’ll find it. But if you look for the good, you’ll find it.
The advice people give you is based solely off of their own experiences. So take it with a grain of salt.
Karli’s Good Advice:
“YOU are the best parent for your child.” Remember that your baby is just trying to communicate with you when they are crying….remembering they aren’t crying just to make you frustrated always helped me calm down a little.
BAD ADVICE GIVEN TO COMMUTERS LIKE YOU
In terms of child loss or infertility: “just try again”
“You don’t need to wipe your kids if they just pee. That’s a waste”
Only give straight purées until 18 months, I had a coworker do that per her moms advice and her daughter ended up with some pretty big sensory, oral-motor and speech delays
Enjoy every moment.
Sleep when the baby sleeps
Don’t wake a sleeping baby
Don’t snuggle your baby too much or they won’t learn how to be independent.
