Congratulations, you’re going to be a mom!
Even though this is an exciting time for you, it can also be the most stressful as well. Between sleep deprivation, body changes & aches, hormones out of whack & mommy guilt creeping in, there’s a lot of things that’ll happen when you enter into motherhood.

We’ve compiled a list for first-time moms of funny & informational tips & advice to help you during the hard times. No matter what, belle, YOU GOT THIS!
Your mom’s advice sometimes is the best advice to take:
Some advice I’m clinging to today came from my mom years ago.— Kelly Wickham Hurst (@mochamomma) September 8, 2020
“Everything is going to be okay. We just don’t know what ‘okay’ looks like right now.”
Save your money, honey!:
First time mom advice : it doesn’t matter how many thousands of dollars you spend on toys and jumpers and playhouses, your baby will only want to play w your sunglasses, the vacuum, or your shoes, so save your money because they don’t want it 😂— Mean Green 🤍 (@kayla_green) March 14, 2018

Some first time mom advice: get all the used stuff (clothes, car seats, shoes, etc) while you can because babies are expensive!— Cool Cat🐱 (@fitgirlmamabear) August 9, 2019
Remember to take any advice with a grain of salt:
I love getting advice about being a first time mom and advice on baby things but please do not feel insulted because I don’t follow that advice or do it your way. This is my child and I’m going to learn as I go. But I will take the advice into account, but again do not get upset— Hannah Cole (@_hannahcole1) June 30, 2018
BEST advice for boy moms:

Breastfeeding is difficult for moms & babies:
Don't give up, you wont get baby to latch on perfectly in a day, just keep trying— A Red Flag (@Nomkhitha_) October 1, 2017
Don’t feel guilty about being a working mom:
My advice to first time pregnant moms would be to try to start a side gig that you can do from home. Leaving your baby to go back to work at 12 weeks is probably going to be harder than you imagine on both of you.— Julie Borowski (@JulieBorowski) August 29, 2020
Enjoy every moment:
Congratulations. ❤️ Enjoy the first time with your sweet girl. Look at her a thousand times a day, smell her and cuddle her. Don’t hurry. This time never comes back. An advice from a mom of two. 🤩— annibruenkler (@annibruenkler) September 11, 2020
