  1. Remember to take it easy and relax. Enjoy every moment of being pregnant and never be aafraidto ask for help!

  2. Would love to win this!!!

  3. My top mommy tip is go with the flow. Each kid is different, so you have to do things differently with each kid.

  4. My big mommy tip is to get a good baby carrier! Wearing a baby is a great way to not just bond with the baby, but to calm a fussy baby while getting work done or getting from fresh air!

  5. My best mommy tip (being a mom of 5) is to embrace each child’s differences and encourage them.

  6. My best mommy tip is to keep extra supplies and changes of clothes for baby at places you visit often, like relatives.

  7. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and be specific. Leave a list of things to do on the fridge: wash dishes, walk the dog, bring over a healthy/freezable dinner…Most people want to help they just don’t know what to do.

  8. I say my best mommy tip is to ask or help when you need it!!

  9. My top mommy tip is to relax. Your baby can feel your stress.

  10. If someone offers to help or make a meal for you take them up on it. If you are getting stressed or overwhelmed put the baby in the crib while you take 5 minute break.

  11. Remember to take time to yourself, before and after baby! When it comes to labour and delivery, try and go in with a clear mind set. If you go in thinking “this is going to be the worst experience/pain ever”, it will be with out a doubt. Know you will rock the heck out of labour and own it!

  12. Snacks, snacks, snacks! Best pregnancy, mommy, and travel tip! 🙂

  13. i learned to be confidence,patience for every trimester,love yourself ,and your baby and talk to the baby and keep healthy

  14. housework will wait – spend time with your kids!

  15. Just trust your gut!

  16. Seep when they sleep!

  17. There is no such thing as a perfect parents so dont set unrealistic expectations and goals for yourself. Every parent makes mistakes so learn from them and move on. And it’s ok to sometimes want alone time, it doesnt make you bad a mom.

  18. SLEEP whenever possible – I never feel rested enough now with a 3 month old!

  19. Listen to your child. Even the smallest things are important. Their cues before they can talk and their words when they can talk.

  20. Sometimes you have to take a step back and laugh it off when things get too stressed/crazy. Also, stop and listen to your child.

  21. My best tip for pregnancy is to not let yourself wallow in the sorrows of pregnancy! Keep living (healthily), you can still do most of your regular things (activities, chores, hobbies, volunteer work etc!) during your pregnancy (as long as your doctor hasn’t told you otherwise, of course). I felt so much better with my 3rd pregnancy when I kept busy and didn’t allow pregnancy hormones to run my interactions with people.

  22. My favorite bit of advice during my pregnancy has been to “just do the next thing”! It’s easy for us new Moms to get overwhelmed and anxious about all the things we need to get done and this new experience, but if you just keep doing the next thing, you’ll feel accomplished and the stress of having your first child, doesn’t seem as daunting!

  23. Try to enjoy the little moments. Everything goes so quickly that if you don’t “unplug” and soak it in, you’ll miss out!

  24. Pregnancy & Mommy Tip: Stay well hydrated, eat healthy, and get as much rest as you can. Taking care of yourself will make you a better mom.

  25. Babywearing is a lifesaver!!!! Breastfeed for as long as you can and don’t give up!!!

  26. Get out of the house at least once a day. Seriously.

  27. A great tip I’ve learned about breast feeding is if you feel like your supply is dipping just eat a bowl or two of oatmeal everyday! Really helps!

  28. Be patient!!! baby knows when you are stressed so just breath. Take lots of pictures and videos (they grow up so fast)

  29. my best tip would be to nap when baby does and do not worry about what your house looks like at the time, take the help when offered and don’t stress

  30. It’s ok to let them cry in the crib if you have to use the bathroom!

  31. Enjoy sleeping before baby!

  32. My best mommy tip is to trust your instincts and to realize that every pregnancy and post partum recovery is so very different and that you can’t compare yourself to others.

  33. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Getting some sleep is more important for you and your baby. And never compare your baby to someone else’s . They all reach milestones differently.

  34. The best parenting tip that I ever received was: NEVER WAKE A SLEEPING BABY.

  35. Get lots of rest while you can!

  36. Woul love to win this!!

  37. Accept lots of help, Relax. You will do a great job.

  38. This is an awesome give away!

  39. Always make sure your children are comfortable to come to you with their problems, They must know that you are available and will give you a fair hearing without damaging criticism. If two or more children, family councils are a great way for everyone involved to air their feeling if a serious problem arises.. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to say how one feels and to feel safe to do so. It is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child.(I read a wonderful parenting book by Dr. Haim Ginott=This was many years ago but his advise is timeless.)

  40. My best pregnancy tip is to listen to your body and take it easy. This is the time to nurture yourself and your inner child. 🙂

  41. Don’t have children myself yet but I know my road trip tip will come in useful when I do – always bring a cooler with juice and healthy snacks! You’ll save a lot on food expenses.

  42. be extra prepared. plan for the worst situations.

  43. Enjoy the time they grow up fast!!

  44. Best mommy tip: spend time with your babies–they grow up so fast. Dishes can wait–story-time shouldn’t. Enjoy the sunny days, as well as the rainy ones.
    And most of all–listen to your gut. No one knows your kiddos like you do. :o)

  45. Nothing will ever go the way you expect it to go.

  46. Everything else can wait, soak up the snuggles! 🙂

  47. Always plan to leave the house at least 10 minutes earlier than you normally would when you’ve got a little one in tow.

  48. Take one day at a time and enjoy every second, they grow so fast!

  49. My best Mommy advise, is to cherish every moment as they grow up way to fast!

  50. Travel tip that applies to life in general never leave the house without water or snacks!

  51. Enjoy every moment because before you know it they will be all grown up!!

  52. best mommy, tip: take a pic every day so you can look back at how tiny they were

  53. Take it one step at a time. No one knows everything about parenting when they first start.

  54. My best pregnancy tip is to CHERISH the movements inside. It’s seriously the ONLY reason I miss being pregnant and would want to do it again, but then I come to my senses lol. Just remember that feeling. Maybe record it if you can ! 🙂

  55. Best Mommy advice is always pack a second change of clothes and have extra wipes and diapers in the car!

  56. Be patient with all the challenges! With hardship surely there will come ease. And try to create a routine or schedule in terms of feeding and sleeping for your baby, even if it’s a rough one, early on. It will help you stay more organized and plan your days better and will be good for your baby too.

  57. Enjoy your children as much as you can! They grow up much too quick! And the old saying “spend twice as much time and half as much money on them”

  58. Seriously play with your kid. Plan it into your day to take even just the smallest bit of time to engage in some sort of fun activity with them and give them your full, undivided attention (no phones allowed!). I find it makes it so much easier to have “Me Time” when I tell him “Mommy’s busy right now but we will have our fun time at 7.” He seems more okay that Mommy has other things to take care of when he knows without a doubt I will be there to play with him and do nothing else during our regular play time. Plus, I am super fun if I do say so myself!

  59. keep baby wash cloths in your pockets and purse, super great for quick spit ups of whatever else comes oozing out.

  60. Cherish every moment

  61. Sleep when they sleep. Harder said than done though

  62. My best travel tip is to give the address of your hotel to your children so that if they get separated they have the information to get back to somewhere safe

  63. My daddy tip is help mommy out as often as you can. She worked hard delivering that little one!

  64. Do not worry if your household gets a little messy when first home with your newborn. Baby and you come first-relax and enjoy.

  65. Would LOVE to win!!!

  66. Travel tip: gate check stroller 🙂

  67. For the love of all that is holy, don’t let the nasties get you down. People WILL tell you you’re screwing up, you’re doing this wrong, or you should do that, or whatever. Ignore them. Listen to your instincts, your partner, and your doctor.

  68. My tip is to always carry extra wipes and diapers!

  69. Consider a midwife, doula and homebirth. Placenta encapsulation and delayed cord clamping.

  70. I started singing the alphabet and different nursery songs to my baby while i was pregnant, it is so important to talk to your baby early, I have early talkers, wait is that good? haha and don’t forget take lots of pictures, babies grow way too fast

  71. Pack a lot of healthy snack options!

  72. It doesn’t matter, if your house is a mess and the dishes aren’t clean, just saviour the time you have together.

  73. My best tip is to invest in a good baby carrier, especially if you’ve already got an older child. So much easier and more convenient!

  74. Don’t freak out about asking for help!

  75. They grow up so fast, take time to enjoy each stage, each day! Take lots of pictures and make memories! Get down with them and look at the flowers along the way, see things through their eyes!

  76. My best pregnancy tip is to drink a lot of water to stay hydrated, especially in the summer.

  77. New Mom’s should always take the opportunity to nap when baby is sleeping!

  78. Remember to relax and enjoy the small moments, those are the ones that stick with us.

  79. My best tip would be to listen to your inner voice. You’re the best mother for your child!

  80. My best tip is to go with your mommy instinct.

  81. My best travel tip is to leave an itinerary of where you’re going (if you know it) with a close friend or relative, along with photocopies of your passport and major credit cards and any important documents you take with you. Make sure you have their number memorized! Include travel agency and hotel numbers if possible. This really put my family’s mind at ease when we happened to be in Indonesia when the earthquake of 2004 hit, as they knew who to contact and where in the country we were at that time.

  82. Nap when they nap getting caught back up on sleep after delivery is so important!

  83. rest while you are able to and ask for help

  84. Mix cocoa butter and jojoba oil so you don’t get stretch marks

  85. email scans of your important documents to yourself, that way if you lose them they are easier to get again.

  86. My best tip is embrace the quiet moments as well as the loud ones. And nap when your baby naps, the housework can wait 😉

  87. Babies are incredibly adaptable. Don’t worry over every little thing. Your baby will develop at his/her own pace and try not to compare with other families or it will drive you crazy.

  88. Have fun and get lots of rest

  89. Take as much time to sleep when you can!!

  90. do all your research and make your own decisions.

  91. Try not to stress, and get every minute of sleep that you can.

  92. sleep when your kids do, and always remember to breath when things get a little crazy

  93. Travel tip – always carry a little cash along with your debit/credit cards.

  94. travel tip – The second you think of packing something, PACK IT. If you wait, you will forget. And then you’ll end up using a plastic bag as a shower cap.

  95. Rest up as much as you can!!

  96. My mommy tip is to consult a doctor with any health related questions. Using the internet is an easy way to find lots of information, but it’s not always accurate information. It is also often too much information, which can be overwhelming and lead to more stress. Don’t try to self-diagnose – leave it to the professionals!

  97. Take lots of pictures!

  98. Do lots of walking, it’ll keep you in shape!

  99. Although it is hard try to relax and just enjoy your new baby. Don’t fret over every little thing.

  100. Remember, all babies cry. The more stressed you get when they cry, the more they will cry, and it becomes a bad cycle. Take a deep breath and talk to them in a happy voice, and you will both be calmer and happier.

  101. Keep diapers and wipes in a large plastic bag so you can easily transfer it from diaper bag to purse to backpack, etc.

  102. So much great stuff in this giveaway!

  107. Breastfeed! Once baby comes and you get over the horrible two week hump of tiredness and sore breasts. It will be gold! You and baby will be pros and breastfeed ing will become a joy!! Hang in there

  192. I am pregnant with my 4th child. My best tip is to read parenting books before you give birth. if someone suggests a great book about getting your baby to sleep (The Sleep Lady Solution) or a great thing to read about discipline, read it now!!

We have soooo many items with the price tag still on them that we may never be able to use! Don’t over buy, and don’t buy too far in advance 🙂

  233. Always have at least 3 to 5 diapers and wipes plus at least 2 extra outfits with you when you leave the house! There were a few times I was sorry I didn’t! 2 extra outfits minimum! Trust me, we’ve gone through 3 outfits during an explosion before, ha ha!

  234. Sleep any chance you get!!

  235. When people offer to give you a break take them up on it!! Also, don’t forget to eat well, taking care of yourself means you can take better care of your babe!

  236. Just go with the flow!

  243. Let’s try this again…best mommy tip I have received so far is to not read too many baby books. Every baby is different and you are the best judge of what works for your baby not what “experts” say is right. It seems like all of the baby books out there have different opinions about what is right.

  244. love love love this giveaway! would send me over the moon to win for baby no. 2 coming soon in august!

  245. New mommy tip: don’t forget to celebrate the little wins, along with the big ones! I.e. There are some days that taking a shower for mom seems as big an accomplishment as baby rolling over for the first time.

  246. Follow your instincts new moms! Love your babies and never give up an opportunity for snuggles 🙂

  247. Relax. We all turned out okay and out moms didn’t know half of the nonsense we read about.

  248. My best pregnancy tip is to pick a care provider that you feel has your sole interest and ultimately shares your goal of how you want your delivery to go. I made the scary switch at 20 weeks from my OBGYN to a group of Midwives. I am now 33 weeks and already feel so comfortable and confident in my providers and am at peace with having them by my side through it all. Having the support from professionals as well as family members is key to a stress free pregnancy. I cannot wait to meet my little girl Lily Rain in 7 weeks, and I would love love to win! 🙂

  249. Being a bit of a control freak, this was hard to learn but my pregnancy tip is to learn to go with the flow – which will probably become my best mommy tip!

  256. Don’t feel guilty about taking time to yourself – It will make you a better mother and partner.

  257. Take lots of naps!

  258. Sleep and rest as much as possible before baby gets here! Once baby is here, don’t be shy or embarrassed to accept help! I still remember how much it meant to me when friends and family offered to cook meals, clean my house, fold laundry etc!

  259. My best tip is to be sure to take “me time” because if mom is happy, everyone will be happier!

  260. Best pregnancy tip for me was joining an online birth club. You’re all in the same place at the same time and it’s a great place for anonymous support and a great way to get answers to questions you may be afraid to ask 🙂

  261. Drink plenty of water and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you are pregnant. Growing a human is hard work.

  262. Try to relax and enjoy every moment of your pregnancy. It’s a once in a lifetime feeling. You are growing a child! Get plenty of sleep and lots of lotion. I used palmers stretch mark lotion and belly butter. No stretch marks!

  263. You don’t need everything on the registry! Trial and error with the products. You’ll find out what works for you and your little one. Take advice and opinions with a grain of salt. It’s your life after all!

  264. Trust your instincts and don’t pay much attention to what others say. If your baby is healthy, happy (most if the time) and loved you are doing a fantastic job! Don’t be too hard on your self, no parent gets it perfectly right, you are not supposed to, we are humans and we make mistakes but as long as we do it with love and a little effort that is what counts.

  265. Prepare you car like you would prepare you home. While traveling have everything you may need for the children easily accessible.

  278. I recommend prenatal massages! 🙂

  279. Take one day at a time.

  280. Don’t get offended when people are trying to give you advice. Don’t argue either, then it will last longer..

  281. I have 3 daughters and my best pregnancy tip is to always know where the restrooms are located everywhere you go as soon as you get there!

  282. clean the plastic baby food containers that have the lid and use them to hold small treats like raisins or animal crackers with you in the diaper bag

  283. Everything is now going to take twice as long as it did before, always set aside extra time.

  284. Every moment whether challenging, happy or mundane will soon pass – try to enjoy them all

  285. Travel with caution and water!

  286. Mommy tip: Do what works for you and your family! If you try to follow everyone else’s rules and ideas you’ll go nuts!

  287. Getting ready for baby and travel make up a travel bag for baby and you will find it easy to pick up and go, and enjoy sharing the road or park or just about anywhere with your child along!

  288. honestly the best mommy tip is the one any new mother is going to hear bunches of times and that’s to sleep while baby sleeps. i was always exhausted because i never followed that rule.

  289. Always carry baby wipes!
