Things i wish i knew as a new mommy

These are things i think every new mom and dad should know... Some if these things are.. (with links to my reasoning)

  • Breastfeeding is the best thing you can do for your baby and yourself, and do it in public! dont let anyone tell you diffrent! 
  •  the fact that babies DON'T sleep through the night! 
  • You shouldn't carry your baby facing out 
  • Johnson & Johnson is HORRIBLE brand!! 
  • babies need their "virgin gut"
  • "Cry it out" is unhealthy for your child (and i have never done it thank god!)  
  • Co sleeping IS HEALTHY!  
  • everyone will give you their opinion! Take what you need and discard the rest, make your decisions!
  • cloth diapers are a great money saver and they are not pins and plastic covers! And you can support Work at home moms
  • SAY YES! instead of always saying no, try to say yes more, let your kid play in shaving cream! 
  • Find other moms, weather it be an online group, a playgroup or just someone you trust, find people with similar beleifs and stick with them!! 
  • Dont be afraid to ask for help, batman had robin! 
  • Dont beleive doctors all the time, they can be wrong too. 
  • dont give formula if you are tring to successfully breastfeed! EVER not even a little not even at the hospital! 
I think every mother needs to do a ton of research when they find out they are pregnant, they need to make decisions for themselves and read both sides of the opinion!! Parenting is NOT black and white and dont beleive everything you hear/read! 

DO what you think is right and HAVE FUN being a parent is amazingg!!!!
