Doing things is a lot harder than talking about doing things, and this applies hugely when it comes to parenting. When you're planning to have a kid it can feel romantic to map out the ideals and habits you want to instill in your children. However, chaos ensues when they actually arrive, and all of the highfalutin plans fall to the wayside full of sleepless nights.
With the wisdom of 20/20 hindsight, mom-of-three Casey Huff penned a letter to her pre-parenting self laying out the things she wished she knew.
The post, which quickly went viral, featured 27 pieces of advice Huff wish she'd absorbed before having kids.
1. You will in fact sleep again. Someday.
2. Breastmilk is really good for babies. So is formula. Do what you gotta do. They’re your boobs, it’s your baby.
