"Ma! There's Nothing to Do in Here" by Barbara Park Heading to a baby shower anytime soon? We chatted about fabulous baby shower ideas last week, and dished on how to make your own diaper cake. Now we’re out to make life easier for one lucky shower attendee! We’ve got a gift pack of three books for new moms: Amanda Barden’s “Baby Names Made Easy;” Katina Jones’ “Bottles, Budgets and Birthplans: What You Really Need to Know to Get Ready for Baby;” and Barbara Park’s “Ma! There’s Nothing to Do in Here!” picture book. Park – yep, the same one who wrote the outrageously popular Junie B books, penned this one as a baby shower gift for her daughter-in-law.

Want to win the entire trio? Click “comments” and share your best piece of new mom advice! We’ll pick a winner Sunday night. (This contest is now closed. For the current contest, click here.)

    Take a nap in the middle of the day when your baby naps. Not only will you be refreshed, but you will have more energy to take care of your new baby and finish all those household tasks that need to be done.

    I have a mild case of post-partum depression after the birth of my second son. My advice if a new mother feels unusually down, seek the help of family, friends and professionals. Thanks, Cindi

    The best advice I have for a new mom is to take all the help that is offered. This is no time to try to do it all. Just focus on your new family and let ALL the other stuff be taken care of by those who are willing and able to help.

    This is such wonderful advice, you guys! Keep ‘em coming!

    The best advice I can give is to relax and not sweat the small stuff. No one will care if you stay in your jammies until 2:00 pm. No one is perfect, just do the best you can and try to enjoy the process. Don’t compare your experience to everyone else’s and try to get as much sleep and rest as you can. Be kind to yourself, a happy mom is the best mom!

    My advice is to take it all ONE DAY at a time!! Each day is so different and if you have expectations about ANYTHING you will get disappointed.
