Thank you to Little Remedies for sponsoring this post as part of my partnership with them. As always, all thoughts and ideas are my own.
Baby Milestones. As a first time parent, I was all about them. I consulted resources to see if my son was meeting certain skills within the specified months of age. I have to admit, I probably stressed myself out more than I needed to. And that is part of being a first-time parent – it just comes with the territory.
And then you have more kids – in my case, twins. I barely cracked a book and googled only a few things, versus the thousands of searches I did as a new mom. The second time around, I trusted my “mom-stinct” more and just did what I thought was right, consulting my pediatrician only when I needed to. We visited the doctor a lot less, instead of for every sniffle or cough. While other aspects of parenting had grown harder (like managing three under 3!), I was much more relaxed as a parent – less worried.
That’s how parenting goes. It’s never the same as your first child – and baby milestones take on new meaning and parenthood evolves. You change and trust yourself more.
One thing that has remained consistent is my trust of the Little Remedies brand – for everything from gas, to stuffy noses and cough relief. It’s natural and mydoctor has always recommended the brand. Now that it’s cold season, I trust Little Remedies 100% Natural Honey Cough Syrup to help soothe those little coughs and sore throats. Made with only 3 ingredients, these products contain no artificial colors or flavors, no saccharin or alcohol, no high fructose corn syrup.
