Share Your Parenting Wisdom

What's your number one tip for new parents?

Trust your instincts. You can't learn how to parent from a book or a manual, it's so very important to trust your instincts and be calm and your baby will be calm as well.

What has been the most surprising thing you've learned as a parent?

That by trusting your instincts you can be an amazing parent

Tell us about your funniest parenting story (we all have them!)

Isabelle loves to eat! Weighing in at 25 lbs at just 9 months, she is constantly hungry. We have been trying to teach her sign language right around the same time she has been learning to clap and we so hoped that she would learn how to sign "more" but instead she mastered clapping. So every time she wants more food she claps! We feel like we are being summoned for more food every time she claps!
