From the moment you learn you are pregnant, it’s time to develop confidence in yourself to know that you are an expert when it comes to caring for your little one. You are the best person for this job, and your maternal intuition will guide you to do what’s right for years to come.
It’s easy to get caught up in self-doubt as a new mom when you have “so-and-so” telling you to do this or that, and you hear different opinions on how to parent. It’s not surprising that there are so many different opinions to take in. The special bond between a mom and child helps develop a unique parenting style for each child. These parenting styles even differ among siblings, so adopting someone else's parenting tips entirely will not help you to be an expert on raising your child. It will make you an expert in raising their child.
While you may consider some parenting tips from family and friends, the best thing to do is become best friends with that voice in your head, your mother’s intuition. That little voice is the key to becoming the expert you were created to be for your child. You will find that your intuition is always the best advice you could ever listen to.
All any mother wants for her child(ren) is the best, and understanding that the best for them is you will only help you succeed in parenting. Read more on how to be an expert here.
