Kids don't come with instruction manuals...

But if they did....

What would it include?

Lets get creative ladies!

*Warning:Just because you became pregnant.. carried your child for 9 months.. gave birth.. and gave your baby your last name.. People (esp other women) are going to claim they know best, and they are your childs mother.. This is particularly true of MIL's and Grandmas..*

Stand your ground Ladies!

Time to yourself!! Everyone needs it. If you don't have time, make it. Otherwise you'll end up burning yourself out.

Don't bother with 4oz bottles. When the baby outgrows them in two months, and you find your broke from all the other expenses? You learn how to make formula so fast that you could make it an olympic sporting event! Victoria takes 6-8 oz, so I have to make a bottle, and as soon as she's done guzzling I need to put her down, run to the kitchen and make another four ozs before she realizes the bottles gone. NOT EASY!

Don't be too proud to accept hand outs... Whatever form it comes in.. TAKE IT!
Whether it be, watching your baby so you can sleep, watching your baby so you can clean/cook/do laundry/shop..
Hand me down clothes.. you name it.. take it! (You'll thank me for it)

I agree with all 3! Very very true...especially about the bottles. That was a mistake I made lol

Heres one...Dont go crazy on buying your baby a bunch of really expensive clothes because before you know it they are just too big to get in them anymore! And believe it or not, but bibs DONT ALWAYS WORK LOL...so as many of them as you may have...it doesnt mean they're gonna really protect your babys clothes lol...

sooo yeah...I dont see the point in buying such expensive clothes for them..You may as well save your money for learning toys that will last longer.
