Expecting your first child is a fun and exciting time but can leave us soon to be moms with a lot of questions of the unknown! I am thankful we don't have to learn it on our own! We took it to our moms and ask what their top 3 tips would be to any first time mom.
1.) NO ONE HAS ALL THE RIGHT ANSWERS
"That no matter what advice you take or path you go down in parenting, there will always be "what-ifs" & parent guilt about something. So always make decisions that you feel 100% backed & confident in so when you look back, you know you made the best decision you could given the information you had at the time. This stuff is hard and no one has all of the right answers 100% of the time." -Shelby H.
2.) Don't think you have to do it all
"I struggle with this. I try to be super mom and do everything for everybody, but you have to take care of yourself, too."- Britney S.
Bonus tip: "Keep a small bag in your trunk with diapers and wipes"
3. And last but not least...when you are a mom expecting to be a mom to two for the first time :)
"I was always told that having a second baby would be a completely different experience from the first. Well, boy did I underestimate that statement.. My girls are night and day! It took me a while to embrace Addie’s wildness and stop comparing her to the calm nature of her sister! Once I learned how to nurture her personality I started to see things in a totally different light!"- Meredith Y.
