  1. Heidi Daily says:

    My best advice is to always be consistent

  2. My tip is to accept help from others with chores, cooking etc. Enjoy your newborn!

  3. Karen Joyce says:

    Schedule bath time directly following any meal time!

  4. Virus and colds strike at worst times.

  5. On those nights when your little one just cannot seem to fall asleep, buckle your baby up in his or her comfy Britax car seat and go for a ride around the neighborhood and after a little while your baby will be sound a sleep.

  6. Leslie Guenther says:

    Expect poop everywhere and just be ready.

  7. Have fun being a parent! Also, I found zippered sleepers to be useful. Who wants to deal with a crying baby at 3am and deal with snaps or buttons?

  8. Breanne says:

    I’m going to be a first time parent so no tips.

  9. Rachel Marshall says:

    Even if you’re new to parenting, trust your instincts! You know your body, and you know your baby!

  10. christal c says:

    Just when you think you have it licked look out something new happens

  11. JoAnn F. says:

    your children are individuals, you cant have the same expectations.

  12. Jackie F says:

    Don’t turn down whoever wants to help! Family & friends were so helpful in those first few weeks of sleep deprivation – we wouldn’t have made it without them!

  13. Jessica says:

    My advice is that it gets easier. The first few days with a newborn is exhausting from lack of sleep but they will soon learn to sleep the entire night.

  14. Make sure you have lots of receiving blankets. Babies go through tons!

  15. christine jessamine says:

    mine is that every baby is different, you cant expect the next baby to be the same as your first. expect change

  16. Bethany M says:

    That bathroom fan can be really soothing to that baby that just won’t sleep.

  17. Do NOT listen to the so called experts- YOU will be the expert on your pregnancy and your child, others can offer advice, but you will know best. Trust yourself and your own instincts.

  18. Follow your gut instinct. If you think something is wrong with your child don’t give up until you find an answer.

  19. I would add to chill out as much as possible and don’t read any parenting books!

  20. Listen to your kids.

  21. Meghan Finley says:

    You can never have as many wipes as you need when you really need them. It’s inevitable.

  22. Betty C says:

    Remember every baby is different. Four of my children loved stretching the boundaries and exploring every inch of the house but one was content to stay inside the play pen all day long and was uncomfortable without his boundaries. Also, remember to keep an eye on them all the time. I had one in a stroller and turned my back to talk with a neighbor and my 8 month old climbed on top of the stroller canopy!!

  23. Expect to change your mind…a lot!

  24. Erica C. says:

    I’m a subscriber :)
    My tip is to try to enjoy what you can, even the hard moments before they fly by!

  25. Shana K says:

    My advice is to always try to stay one step ahead of toddlers. As frustrating as they can be distraction works wonders with them!

  26. My advice is not to leave the kid in the car on the driveway even for a minute to go get something, or to at least use the emergency brake! My hubby had the unfortunate experience of coming out of the house and seeing the car rolling toward the street with our toddler inside…. (all was fine, he got to the car in time, but SHEESH!!)

  27. Chelsea O. says:

    Go with the flow! Whether it’s never getting any chores done or a toddler willing to eat only cheese, just go with it and enjoy the ride.

  28. My advice is to enjoy being sick before you become a parent..because once you’re a parent getting sick sucks more than you can possibly imagine. Ever.

  29. Laurie Emerson says:

    One tip is to take mini naps where your newborn takes theirs. You may not be able to keep up with housework and laundry but those tiny naps helps you to keep up your strength.

  30. – trust your gut.

  31. rss subscriber- and make sure to always bring extra sets of clothing everywhere you go, including for yourself!!

  32. Misty Smith says:

    Dont stress out over the small stuff and always have extra wipes in the car. Also make sure you have an extra change of clothes for the baby.

  33. I can say that there is nothing that can prepare you for the sleeplessness the first few months. Sleep when the baby sleeps, eat when you can, get help and enlist anyone you can to help you. It is so important to have time for yourself.

  34. My advice is to talk to your doctor if your belly button hurts because it could be an umbilical hernia.

  35. lisa bolduc says:

    tips = sleep when baby is sleeping……

  36. David Gossett says:

    Take it day by day, because time goes by too fast. We have four daughters, and if I could give any advice, ir would be that if it is really not life or death, it will pass! Don’t sweat the small stuff! :) Thanks for the chance, my little Gwen would love this seat!

  37. Wendy O. says:

    One piece of advice I’d give is to trust your instincts. Everyone (and I mean EVERYONE!) will tell you how to “correctly” do everything. But this is your child, and you need to do what is right for your child. Just because it worked for them doesn’t mean it will work for you. Smile, thank them for the advice, and then do what you want to do.

  38. Jessica Beard says:

    Always have plenty of diapers and wipes when you are out just in case. Also, take a nap when your child naps!

  39. erin e. says:

    We have not had our child yet, but I could contribute some funny pregnancy stories for sure@

  40. shannon says:

    Ask for and accept help!

  41. I have three kids – 8.5 months, 11 years and 13 years old…when they are babies, sleep is overrated. You don’t really know if you’re awake or asleep those first couple of months. I just recently stopped leaving the house with baby barf on my shoulder. Enjoy it all, because it will go by so fast.

    Every baby is different, nurture their curiousity and entusiasm.

  43. Anne Lehnick says:

    I knew that boy babies had some distance with their peeing when you took off a diaper, but I didn’t know that girls could too!

  44. Kristin Sawatzke says:

    Sleep when you can and always let others help when its needed!

  45. Christina Parker says:

    Never wake a sleeping baby and hold them as much as you want to they can’t be spoiled! Also don’t turn the lights on at night during diaper changes.

  46. Natalie S says:

    Always carry a change of clothing for baby!

  47. Melissa O. says:

    With all my new mom friends I always tell them not to rush their little ones to reach their milestones. They always want their babies to do all these things and they don’t listen to my advice until years later when they tell me I was right. The baby years go quick and you should enjoy and cherish them.

  48. Eileen says:

    My tip is to not be afraid to delegate or accept help from others. We had 6 and it could get pretty crazy. Never really asked for help much but going on a few vacations. Make SURE you do take time away from the kids too, couples need that!

  49. Melissa says:

    Forget the dishes and laundry, they’ll always be there…trust me. Make time to play, always take the time to play. Because someday they will be grown up and gone….but the dishes will still be there.

  50. Nikole H. says:

    Ask questions, read, talk… but in the end, you gotta do what works for you!

  51. David Holder says:

    Sleep when you can!

  52. expect the unexpected

  53. Sandy VanHoey says:

    You can expect many sleepless nights and seems like sickness and fever starts then

  54. Brandy says:

    Always pack a change of clothes bc you never know… blowouts happen in the funnest of places

  55. More info should be included on green options like cloth diapers and wipes

  56. LaTanya says:

    Accept help. Do not try to do everything yourself or you could end up burning out.

  57. Christina Brundick says:

    the Mr Clean erasers were the best invention ever! Such a help versus repainting. Google reader subscriber

  58. when bathing a baby boy, place a wash rag over his pp to avoid any potential accidents, learned that one the hard way

  59. don’t expect to be able to breastfeed just because you want to…i was 100% dedicated but after 3 months my body just stopped producing milk and it was hard not to feel like a failure because i had planned on breastfeeding for the first year but she’s almost 8 months old now and healthy as can be! :)

  60. advice- buy TONS of those foldable cloth diapers from Walmart to use as burp cloths!

  61. Do not sweat the small stuff…and time is fleeting always have a camera at the ready for the big moments ..:)

  62. Baby wipes can get crayon stains off furniture and walls

  63. Alex Liz Robinson says:

    I subscribe by email and I can’t give advice because I haven’t had our first baby yet, but i guess a good one would be is be patient.

  64. I will say that you don’t have to take any unsolicited advice that many people will give you. As a mom you’ll know what’s best for your baby.

  65. Valerie Taylor Mabrey says:

    a child will always be right after the bath and the clean diaper goes on

  66. Alison S. says:

    I learned not to stress!

  67. ColleenMarie82 says:

    Breastfeeding is hard but totally worth it in the end!

  68. if you have a baby boy- point the pp down to prevent leaks
    tcogbill at live dot com

  69. Try to nap while the baby naps

  70. Bridget Heiple Reich says:

    I have an 8 month old and a 5 year old old. I say, sleep when the baby sleeps. Also, don’t even try to clean up the toys and baby things in the house, they will just come right back out again. I try not to get stressed about constantly having a messy house!

  71. brooke t says:

    forget the sleep when the baby is sleeping crap – you won’t listen to it and people will nag you about it. Just remeber it gets easier after the 1st month!!

  72. Samantha C. says:

    Best tip is to sleep when baby is sleeping!

  73. Cynthia C says:

    Expect to be amazed by your kids. They are awesome!

  74. Gripe water don’t ever leave home without it.

  75. Adrienne gordon says:

    how kids can tell the best lies with a straight face when they are little

  76. Tamara Szogedi says:

    My tip: always carry snacks. A toy can be made from anything, but food and drinks, if you run out of those: bad news!

  77. Laura Jacobson says:

    Clip coupons and stock up on diapers and baby supplies when on sale!

  78. Amanda Hoffman says:

    aquaphor works good for drool rashes

  79. Colleen Maurina says:

    My tip is to invest in a quality baby carrier because it not only keeps your baby close and happy but leaves your hands free to get things done!

  80. brandi a says:

    Always take an extra outfit (or two) with you… diaper leaks can happen when you dont expect them too…Also burps, spit up, cup/bottle spills….. all can ruin the most adorable outfits…. 😉

  81. Alondra Ramirez says:

    Potty training can be difficult but when they are ready it should take less than a week, and makes it worth while and makes you so happy when it does

  82. Always have the diaper bag fully stocked and ready to go.

  83. my tip is to follow your momma instinct its usually right

  84. DAMIAN JARREAU says:

    be patient during the terrible 2’s or they will drive you crazy

  85. Kristi F says:

    Stay flexible!

  86. amanda roach says:

    always keep a spare outfit and diapers and wipes with you

  87. Juli Guthrie says:

    My tip. Use as much organic as you can. The junk they put in non organic food is not good for our kids. My son is ADHD and I wish I’d known 8 years ago that the pesticides, food color, etc is so harmful. That and remember to breathe.

  88. One tip from my experience as a parent that I could contribute to the “What to Expect” movie script, would be to never hold a sleeping baby. Always put them to bed in their own beds at the same time every night.

  89. Always take extra diapers even if you’re going to the nearby shop to purchase a single item with a new born

  90. Sonya Morris says:

    Expect to enjoy the taste of coffee if you hated it before!

  91. When in doubt use aquaphor. It work great on everything from dry little cheeks to diaper rashes.

  92. D Schmidt says:

    Organize everything the night before so you can leave the house within 30 minutes as opposed to two hours!

  93. My tip: Some days you just have to keep reminding yourself “This, too, shall pass., – like when your child is in the “Terrible Twos”!

  94. Janet W. says:

    One tip is to have lots of diapers on hand. Newborns go through a TON!

  95. Jennie says:

    I’m only pregnant with my first, so I don’t have a lot of advice yet, but one tip I do know is that morning sickness is not limited to the morning, nor does it always magically disappear by the second trimester!
