Give a good piece of advice to first time parents.
Joy- Relax and try to go with the flow. Babies know when you are stressed. If you need a shower or a few minutes to yourself just ask. There is ALWAYS someone who would love to hold a new baby. (Just ask Tonya!)
Nik- Wow, there are so many pieces of advice that I could give. I was very fortunate to still live at home with my mother when I had my oldest. Though there were times that I really got frustrated with her ‘advice and help’ I realize now that it actually was a good thing.
My piece of advice would be to not sweat the little stuff. I know that as a first time parent you want everything to be perfect for your new bundle of joy. It won’t happen. Even as the child grows older, don’t sweat the little stuff.
Tonya- If it’s a girl wipe front to back. If it’s a boy, be prepared to be peed on, more than once.
