After my second daughter's birth

After my second daughter’s birth

Being a mom to soon-to-be 4 kids has been amazing, stressful, and yet so rewarding! My oldest turns twelve in less than two months and it truly has been fun watching her grow. And with another little one on the way my “new mom” fears are already starting to show! You would think being a mom to three this would be an easy transition and apiece of cake right?

Nope!!! I still have all the same fears and questions as first time moms. Sure, I already know I’ll be up all night with feedings and diaper changes but here is still so many questions even experienced moms have!  my girls

Every time I left the hospital I had so many questions! Yes, even those on normal infant stools! I still remember in exclusive breastfed baby’s stool and I almost freaked out. With my first baby I used formula in the hospital so her stool was completely different!

Check out this nifty chart for new moms and dads to use! (click to enlarge it)

    I think the stool color guide is really helpful! I’m currently pregnant with baby #3 and I totally agree.. I have the same fears that I had before having my first. All babies are different, my first 2 were complete opposites anyway 🙂

  2. Julia V says:

    I just had my first baby 2 months ago. Before she was born, people told me to get my hospital bag ready early – around 30 weeks – just in case! Honestly, I meant to get it ready… but I didn’t think my baby was going to be early, so I never got to it! My daughter ended up being born 5 weeks early… and I ended up having to wear the hospital gowns for most of my stay 🙁

  11. JenniferDogRescuer says:

    I thought the stool color chart was really helpful….I never saw that before with my previous two!

  12. Sleep, eat and relax whenever you can. Even a few moments of quiet, a 15 minute nap or a piece of fruit can be hard to get with a new baby

  13. Cynthia R says:

    I give this advice to all new moms, u are going to drive yourself crazy continuing with your perfectionist ways, your lists, your endless chores, take naps, hold baby, take pictures and relax a little bit, the house can be a little dusty and cluttered for a while

  14. Leela says:

    Sleeping when baby sleeps if possible.

    I know it’s cliched and said a lot but sleep when the baby sleeps. Really!

  24. Linda Madden says:

    I used Vaseline on my babies genitals instead of diaper creams like Desitin because they are so thick and goopy that they are so hard to wash away.The Vaseline worked great.

  25. Donna K says:

    to get a baby swing

  26. James Robert says:

    I think good advice is if offered, accept help and get much needed rest when you can

  27. Michael T says:

    First time soon to be dad. So far I head using vaseline on the first few days while the intestines are working there way for the first times will help keep the tar like substances off of baby

  28. Liberty T. says:

    I am expecting my first and the best advice I have received so far is to make sure that you still take time for you like going to the gym or taking a nap when you can.

  29. nannypanpan says:

    to use saline nose drops, they helped my babies with colds so much

  30. Kortnie says:

    Do what you want and think is right, not what everyone else tells you to do

  31. Lizzie S says:

    to give breastfeeding 6 full weeks. It was so hard for me in the early days and weeks and LOTS of tears from me and my baby girl, but then one day it just got a little easier and continued to do so.

  32. Holli G. says:

    Best advice was to accept that I was doing a good job even on the bad days!

  33. McKim says:

    I’m a grandma, but my best advice is to trust your instincts. You know your baby better than anyone.

  34. Kim says:

    to listen to your gut!! best advice

  35. Ashley Elaine says:

    I am expecting my first in March & have received lots of advice, my expectations are to learn as I go because I know not everyone has that same experiences but most important not to stress over the little things & enjoy every second because time flies.

  36. Rachel Travis says:

    Do what is right for you– consult only a few select people and your doctor!

  37. Natalie S says:

  41. Ashley H says:

    Let the nurses take the baby to the nursery so you can get some sleep.

  42. Sonya Morris says:

    Trust your instincts.

  43. Shannon says:

    Don’t compare your baby to other babies

  44. Heather Dawn says:

    Trim your baby’s nails while they are sleeping.

  45. Theresa M says:

    My children are all grown up and now we are getting our first grandchild in June. The thing I would suggest would be to wear a hat on your baby when in the sun or out in the wind.

  46. Carly D. says:

    I think the best advice I have received is to follow my heart and trust my own instincts and not necessarily listen to everyone who thinks they know what is best. I know that sounds harsh but I really hate when people tell me what I should be doing when I am capable of making the best decisions for my family.

  47. Dawn Monroe says:

    I think the websites and charts would be helpful. My advice would be that every baby is different.

  48. Rebecca Orr says:

    The best advice I received was regarding help from friends and family. Take it when offered. Don’t think you can do it all…especially if it is your second or third. Yes, you may be more experienced. But more babies, means more work, less sleep, less time in general. I always take offers for meals, shower time while grandma sits with the baby, etc.

  49. Linda Kish says:

    Sleep when the baby sleeps.

  50. Sarah Hayes says:

    this too shall pass was good advice but I didnt realize how true it was until my LO was older

  51. Kim James says:

    Write milestones on your calendar and then you can transfer them to the baby book when you have time. That way you do not have to worry about forgetting them.

  52. julie says:

    best advice when the babies get older-always manke them sit when they eat! keeps the food from getting spread all over the house

  53. kelly says:

    I found it hard to sleep when she slept – at least when I was home alone with her- but I did take that time and relax with tv or a book or something. I used it for ‘me’ time because that is so important as a new mom.

  54. Katherine says:

    When baby naps you nap and please call someone if you are too tired for help

  55. Rosanne says:

    My aunt told me to give the baby it’s bath at night so he would sleep better.

  56. Ellie Wright says:

    To stop as often as possible and just enjoy your baby. Time flies so fast and they won’t be babies for long.

  57. Paula C. says:

    Sleep or nap when the baby does, the housework will keep or ask someone to help.

  58. AndreaH says:

    A piece of advice that I have found completely useful is to be sure to take some time for yourself. You can’t take care of others if you aren’t taking the time to rest or relax.

  59. Dominique says:

    Take any help that is offered, so you can get some rest for yourself!

  60. Cindy Castro says:

    The stool chart has some good info. I’m forwarding your blog to my son & daughter-in-law; they just had their first baby.

  61. Katie Klein says:

    It was a lightbulb moment for me when I realized the line on the pampers diapers was an indicator as to whether the diaper was wet or not!

  62. Nancy Sloan says:

    Try to nap while the babys sleeping

  63. Tanya White says:

    get sleep when the baby is sleeping

  64. Emilie Proctor says:

    THe very best advice: Sleep when the baby sleeps! If you have other kids, accept help!

  65. Michele P says:

    Of course I learned to sleep when the baby sleeps, also I learned that don’t be afraid to ask questions or ask for help.

  66. nickie says:

    Sleep as much as possible and don’t be afraid to ask for help.

  67. kayla sutton says:

    don’t ever be afraid to ask for help!

  68. Whitney L says:

    Let your husband deal with people and having them leave when you need rest.

  69. Jeanna says:

    Don’t worry about how the house looks or all the “things” that need to get done. Take time to care for your new baby & yourself!

  70. Leanne Godfrey says:

    The best advice I have heard was to be sure to carve out some time for yourself.

  71. Christie says:

    Make sure to nap when they nap, it can really help.

  72. Lori Walker says:

    I had no idea that it would be so time consuming to breast feed…

  73. Tara says:

    Ask for help!

  74. Rachel says:

    Go with you gut…a doctor gave me that advice and told me even doctors (just like everyone else) has their own opinions. So really, I just needed to go with my gut and do what was best for me and my child because I was the mommy.

  75. Christian Alejandro says:

    Find a way to sneak in some alone time to refuel mentally!

  76. tina reynolds says:

    Take a nap when baby does

  77. EMMA L HORTON says:

    GET YOUR SLEEP…..EASIER SAID THEN DONE

  78. Brittney House says:

    My friend once told me to use the babies nap time as your own nap time too.

  79. Karen Drake says:

    My daughter is expecting her first baby, one piece of advice I have is to sleep when the baby is sleeping so you get plenty of rest.

  80. Penny Bennett says:

    Best advice was listen to my gut, my baby and my Ped! Not to google and look up a million things 🙂

  81. Theresa says:

    Take lots of photos! You’ll love seeing how much they grew in such a short period of time!

  82. Vikki Billings says:

    My mom told me sleep when the baby sleeps and don’t try to be real quiet when they are sleeping. I could vaccume in my son’s room and he would not wake up.

  83. Stephanie Larison says:

    Skip all the expensive diaper creams, vaseline works like a charm!

  84. Donna Kellogg says:

    My advice is when the baby is sleeping let it sleep in his/hers bed so it will not get spoiled

  85. stephanie baker says:

    Sleep when baby sleeps was the worst advice I ever got. Especially in the beginning, most of the time it was 20 minute naps which was not helpful. She has acid reflux,though, so maybe others do better with that. What has helped me the most is baby wearing & not worrying about having a messy house.

  86. Kaitlin says:

    I would say make sure you start your baby on a routine and sleep when the baby sleeps.

  87. Mary Diehl says:

    My biggest piece of advice was to me was sleep when the baby sleeps. I give this advice to everyone and also if you need help ask, people are willing to help otherwise it can be overwhelming.

  88. tori norris says:

    Don’t skip out on buying a humidifier just because it’s summer.
    My summer baby is the easiest one to get sick and slowest to get better so far and that Vicks humi is my favooorite.

  89. MARIA simon says:

    Sleeping when baby sleeps if possible

  90. Julie says:

    In order to avoid diaper rash, change the baby’s diaper as soon as it is soiled. And use Desitin! Makes such a big difference! Julie smartsavvymama@gmail.com
