The Best Tips And Advice For New Parent

Congratulations on becoming a parent! Whether you’re still expecting, new to the parenting world or just needing to brush up after a long gap between kiddos it’s a very exciting and overwhelming time.

Unsolicited advice can be frustrating. I get it. BUT. Some of the most amazing things I’ve learned as a parent came from the advice of experienced parents I’ve met along the way.

So in the spirit of unsolicited advice, we are sharing some of our own favorite advice as well as the advice of our amazing followers to hopefully help make your experience just a little bit easier.

Reach out for help. I know we ALL say it but that’s because we’ve learned over time that help is necessary in raising children. We have all been through the hardest of days, I promise that no one will think twice to help when you ask.

You will feel exclusive. You know that people have been having babies since the dawn of time and yet for some reason when you have your first child it feels like this is exclusive to you. It’s a magical feeling.

Make time for you. Whether it’s a shower, grocery shopping, girls night, date night or sitting in the pantry eating candy so you don’t have to share…make time for YOU.

Take it one day at a time. If you think too much about how long the hard parts will last or when you’ll EVER be able to sleep again you’ll go crazy. Take it little by little, I promise it’s easier.
