What are the top 3 pieces of advice you would give to a new mom (or mom-to-be)?

Jen Levinson

1. Take a lot of photos - with your newborn, no matter what you look like! I was so embarassed by my weight, after my 1st child, I didnt want to be in any photos. Now, I regret it. 2. Take the help that is offered to you. People that offer help, mean it. Utilizing your family and friends, so that you do not become overwhelmed. 3. Don't sweat the small stuff. Time goes by so fast...enjoy every moment!

What's the best parenting advice your mom gave you?

Jen Levinson

Every child is different and should be treated as such. Never compare your children to what other's kids and babies are doing at a certain age. And certainly don't compare your second child to your first. Or third to the second. All develop at their own pace and that is what makes them special.
