Advice for New Parents…in One Sentence

I while back I wrote a post called ‘Advice For New Parents’. I felt helpful passing on these brain turds concocted by obsessive goggling, trial and error, and hand-me downs from other moms. Now I can sum up all my advice in one sentence.

As a new mom and felt fairly validated by my happy, mellow, easy to sleep-train, chubby little man.

When baby boy was 16 months I had my daughter…. She cried, for pretty much the first 20 weeks of her life. 

Being her Mom has been one of the top three most humbling and difficult  experiences in my life to date.  Don’t get me wrong, she’s as sweet and beautiful as freakin amber sunshine rays on velvety flower petals. But there’s been lots of tears and confusion on both our parts. Fortunately this is all changing for the better….

As parents we tend to give more advice than we take.  

So breaking it down and rebuilding it all over again. Here is the advice I would give a new parent….

Never judge another parent, including and especially yourself.
