Links for New Moms
It seems like a lot of people have been getting knocked-up lately. A couple friends of mine are expecting babies over the next few weeks and one of them is a first-time mom. I recently sent her an email with a list of links that I found myself turning to time and time again. Of course, nothing beats following your own gut instincts on many matters (or a call to your ped), but when you want some quick answers here are some links that get the job done:
http://parenting.ivillage.com/ (the message boards are great)
http://www.kellymom.com (awesome breastfeeding resource)
http://www.hipgirlclips.com/forums/ (if you're having a girl you may enjoy making her hairclips yourself)
http://www.oompa.com/ (when Toys R Us just ain't cutting it: "NO BATTERIES. NO BLINKING LIGHTS. NO CARTOON-THEMED TOYS. PERIOD")
And in case you're considering using cloth ;)
Ok...Did I leave any out? Tell me which sites or blogs about parenting you have found helpful. I don't have anything to give away, but I will be very appreciative!
