Everyone knows the saying about parenthood “The days are long but the years are fast.” It’s one of those clichés that stick because it’s so true. This fall my oldest will go to college, but sometimes I still think of myself as a “new mom.” Obviously, I’m not a new mom, but I remember those days so clearly.
One of the things that stay on my mind the most about the early days is that there were so many decisions to make and so many opinions about which decision was right. The best advice I can give any new parent about any issue from sleep, to potty training to feeding is that you need to follow your own personal style. For example, if you know that you’re not comfortable forcing someone to do something, you may need to take a more relaxed approach to potty training.
It’s strange, but one of the most controversial aspects of motherhood is feeding! Formula or breast, if breast for how long, if formula, which brand … the disagreements and arguments go round and round, and there’s really no reason. Every mother, every parent really, should be comfortable feeding their child in the way they feel best. And, every mother who chooses formula should know that there’s an available formula that’s affordable and fits all their baby’s nutritional needs.
Parent’s Choice™ formula – exclusively available at Walmart – is an excellent formula choice for new moms and their babies. Not only is it affordable (recently named 2018’s best baby formula by Baby Bargains), but because it’s at Walmart it’s convenient for you to pick up when you grab your other baby supplies.
