What It Takes to Have a Happy Baby and Happy You


Tammy Gold childcare expert

A new baby is one of the greatest joys for new parents. The first smile, the first sound, the first steps are memorable experiences sure to be captured by all moms and dads. Unfortunately though, there are some things that can make these special times with new baby stressful.

Does your baby cry a lot? Is he or she on a regular sleeping schedule? Is feeding an issue? According to an online survey by Harris Interactive, nearly 75% of American moms plan to return to work post-baby and 42% of moms returning to the workforce attributed their stress to feeding their babies, whether it’s breastfeeding or formula.

On Thursday, December 11, parenting expert, coach and mom of three, Tammy Gold, will offer tips and suggestions to help ease the transition of becoming a new mom and shed light on ways to reduce that unwanted stress! Tammy’s new book, Secrets of the Nanny Whisperer: A Practical Guide to Finding and Achieving the Gold Standard of Care for your Child, guides parents through the process of hiring your own Mary Poppins!

  • Cracking the crying code- when your baby cries, it can make you frustrated, lose sleep and feel like crying yourself
  • Write things down- especially keep track of feedings, how much and how often as well as signs of feeding distress, i.e. not taking to breastfeeding or a specific formula
  • Comparison shopping- learn the benefits and cost-savings of store brand vs. name brand formulas and FDA’s strict regulations concerning formula
  • Take time for yourself- do whatever it takes to fill you up emotionally and physically to be a better parent
  • Don’t compare- listen to others but always follow your gut when it comes to your children
