Things I would Whisper to Every New Mom: You’re the best mama for your baby. “Comparison is the thief of joy.” (Theodore Roosevelt). Make diverse friends who all refuse to participate in mompetition (Mom-competition). Don’t forget your husband in the Chaos and he will always be your best friend. It gets easier. Nothing is sweeter than snuggles from your babies. And a hundred other things that I write in my Dear New Mom Series.
