Just enjoy the baby and don’t worry about the dishes. Babies grow up way too fast. Love em and hold em while you can.

The best advice I received was to go with my instincts vs. information in a book. I learned to use both my instincts and the knowledge of books together rather than focusing on one over the other. Thanks!

My best advice was that you can NOT spoil a newborn. Hold her as often as you want and keep her close ;)

BTW – i LOVE my playtex dropins. Having this prize would really boost our bottle supply now that my baby girl is getting ready for bigger bottles. Those 4 ounce ones just aren’t enough and I haven’t bought the bigger bottles :)

Best advice I got was not to whisper and tip toe around sleeping baby but use normal voices. That way the baby will be used to those sounds and could sleep through it.

Michael May 20, 2011 at 7:51 am
Emilie May 20, 2011 at 9:45 am

Sounds so basic but sleep when the baby sleeps. That gets a lot harder when you have more than one kid though! :)

Thanks for the chance Christine. My sister is pregnant and it is an unexpected surprise. She could really use this!

The best advice I’ve received is to not take other’s comments and ideas on how to raise a baby too seriously. Advice is good but you’ll know what your little one needs.

Katie May 20, 2011 at 3:18 pm

Best advice = “don’t sweat the little stuff.” We started out by freaking out at every rash, diaper leak, and cry, but soon learned that they’re all a part of being/having a baby and that there’s nothing you can do to prevent them, so just clean up, ointment up, and soothe baby and carry on like it never happened.

amy h May 20, 2011 at 4:45 pm

Best advice…don’t be embarrassed or too proud to accept the help that is offered by family and friends.

She’s not here yet, but the best advice I’ve been given so far is to embrace and enjoy every day, because baby will change so much every single day. :)

I’m currently 8 months pregnant with our first, so I don’t have any advice yet, but I will say that I think that being calm and confident is key. Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

Haha…that little boys like to give you surprise showers, so always keep a washcloth on hand to cover him up if he needs to be diaper free for more than a millisecond! :0

The best advise I was given was to put the baby in the crib and walk away when you get frusterated from the intense amount of crying. Crying will not hurt the baby for just a couple minutes and will give you a minute of peace.

Debbie Kennedy May 21, 2011 at 10:10 pm

The best advice I got was to make the bed with 2 sheet sets, with a mattress protector in the middle, so if baby got sick and the sheet got wet, you just have to rip off the first layer, and don’t have to worry about remaking the bed!

R Hicks May 21, 2011 at 10:35 pm
