I've successfully gotten one kid through diapers and another through the first year of diapers without getting pissed on. It was a miracle

Breastfeeding is great, but there's nothing wrong with formula if mom can't produce enough of the goods. We supplemented a lot then moved on to just formula and homeboy exploded in growth. Don't let mom feel milk-shamed.

You can't spoil an infant. You give that boy everything he wants right now. Worry about spoiling later.

Play/sing music non-stop, and don't go too far out of your way to create perfect silence so he can nap. He should be able to sleep in noise just as well. This will save you trouble later.

Welcome visitors. It'll give you a chance to do things around the house (laundry, cooking, dishes) while the visitors fawn over the baby.

Bumbo seat is amazing once he can hold his head up. A sound machine (we use ocean waves) for night time every night pays off in the long run.

Sleep when he sleeps.

Volumes more but this is the stuff that springs to mind... Congratulations. It's a blast, even when its not.

If Adrian Peterson ever offers you parenting advice, best to ignore it.

Everything here was spot on for us. Of course, every baby is different.
We’re going on a year at the end of the month. Our little one always seemed to have fear of missing out. Sleeping was tough the first few months but then it was on cruise control for a couple months.
Behaviors tend to pass relatively quick.

Help momma out as much as possible. Seriously. I felt like I couldn’t do enough.

Congrats

It's only been what 5 days or so and he's growing so damn fast. Becoming more alert, checking things out, smiles when the pups come near. This is awesome.

It's not the money so much as the freedom that just evaporates. They certainly can be expensive but it's just paper, right?

We actually saved money for a while after having the first kid. We stopped going out and spending money at bars and nice-ish dinners. Then the daycare starts, and that's like a 2nd mortgage.
