I was able to chat with some amazing mom bloggers and was hosted by Dr. Jen Trachtenberg, who happens to be a mom herself. We discussed everything from resting during pregnancy to the sleepless nights that come with a newborn. We also discussed some of the best advice that we received as new moms. I wanted to share some of the highlights and best advice from our chat.
- One of my favorite pieces of advice to give mommies is listen to all the advice but only do what you feel is best for your families. (MommyBKnowsBest)
- The best advice I got was to take a little time for ME every day. It's easy to get lost in the minutia of caring for someone else (and everyone else!). (RookieMomHeath)
- from Dr. Jen- One thing that's really important to do after you give birth is to find that right pediatrician for you and your family. To start with, ask for recommendations from friends/family and meet with a few in your area to see who you hit it off with - because it's hopefully going to be a long-lasting relationship! Remember, you're looking not just for an expert to take care of your child when they're sick, but also a parenting partner.
