New Baby Memories: Moms Talk
What was it like after your child was born?
Congratulations to our Moms Council member Stephane Predovich, who gave birth to her fourth child, Colette, last week.
Hearing about a friend having a new baby may bring back memories for you.
Today, let's talk about those first days after you had your children. What do you remember about meeting the newest member of your family?
Share your memories of joy, exhaustion, bewilderment, fear or just plain fun. Feel free to confess how many pictures you shared on Facebook. Did friends and family bring you good food? And what was the best present?
What would you advise doing for a new mom?
Share your new-baby pictures here, too!
