There’s a lot of information out there on raising kids, but you just need the crib notes. So here you go: 32 parenting experts share their top tips for getting the most out of family life.
“When pregnant, focus on your baby, not your birthing plan. Are you raising a labor story, or are you raising a child? A safe delivery is all that matters.” —Jani Long, editor of the blog Tales of a Labor Nurse
“Don’t lock yourself into a babyish color palette, especially with your wall color. Choose a neutral, which doesn’t have to mean white or beige; it could be gray or navy. Then liven up the room with colorful bedding, curtains, and accessories. If you have your heart set on colorful walls, paint just one accent wall. It’s much easier to change and can have a big impact.” —Maxwell Ryan, CEO and founder of Apartment Therapy, a design website
