Congratulations, you’re a newborn parent! Welcome to the most exciting, tiring, emotional, scariest, happiest and confusing time of your life. Becoming a parent for the first, the second or even the fifth time, can be a handful, no matter how much experience you may have. Don’t we all wish sometimes parenting would have come with a manual or some sort of guide to help us through, well, basically a life time? While it doesn’t come with any sort of written instruction, one thing you can’t say is that you lack information in this era. The problem, however, is not with the lack of information and tips around the web or in print, on the contrary, it’s the abundance of information that can be very very overwhelming.
There are endless questions and worries that come along this new parenting experience, especially in the first year of your newborn’s life. In fact, those questions begin way before you give birth to your precious child: How do I want my baby to be delivered? How often does she need to eat? When will he start eating solids? What do you do with a runny nose? These are all good questions that you might not even find the right answer to because you’ll get lost in that sea of information. That’s why we’ve selected the best websites that give you the most useful parenting tips and advices, and will make look at parenting from a whole different perspective.
