I had so many questions when I became a mom for the first time.  I wasn’t sure if I would be able to “read” my child’s cry or know what to do when he was screaming. I wasn’t sure if I should be trying to put my son on a schedule right away or should I wait until he was a few months old.  Later down the road, I wasn’t sure when the right time was to introduce solid foods into my son’s diet.  Do I add rice cereal into the bottle, or is that a bad idea?  I had so many questions. While my pediatrician was able to answer many of questions, I often used online resources to help educate myself on being a parent. Now that I am pregnant again, I am not ashamed to say that I have forgotten what it was like to have a newborn.  I mean, I was half asleep the first time around and it will be three years since I held a newborn when this baby meets his or her family.  What is a parent to do?

Nowadays there are plenty of places to turn to online if we have a question about taking care of your baby.  It is a lot quicker to put your question in a search engine than it is to pull off your parenting books from the shelf and read to find out the page that answers your question.  One great online resource for parents is the Baby Steps resource from Walmart.  This site helps moms find solution to common questions that new moms have about taking care of their babies.  The site also recommends products that you may need. The site is easy to navigate (a great thing since moms are usually exhausted and tired when navigating the web for advice).  With a few clicks of the mouse, you can have diapers and wipes delivered to your door.  Be sure to check it out for your parenting needs.

    What a great resource. If I still had little ones, I’d bookmark it for sure.

    I wish that they had sites like this when I had my daughter! I looked it over and it has awesome videos for parents – and for aunts like me, who babysit!

    Yes, having a baby comes with a plethora of doubts. I thank God there’s places to turn to, even if it’s just to validate what we already know and feel is right.

    I think you really just have to trust yourself. I was worried about stuff like you were when I was pregnant the first time and you just sort of figure things out, it truly is amazing how you learn to read your baby’s cues and go with your instincts.
