Advice I've heard from other mama's:
  • trust your instincts
  • trust your kid
  • always burp them no matter what, even when they fall back asleep
  • don't be afraid to ask people to wash their hands before holding your baby, especially kids
  • don't be afraid to ask questions, there are no stupid questions
  • that skin-to-skin contact after baby's born really does make a difference
  • it helps to have something to focus on during contractions
  • walk walk walk
What's something you wish you'd known before having your baby?

  1. margarita... something i learned during nursing school... daddies that spend 20 minutes alone with their baby within the first 24 hours after birth end up spending something like 30% more time with their child during it's life. does that make sense? so even though you're doing your skin-to-skin, don't forget EJ!!
