Becoming a parent is a bit like being handed a reference book full of questions without any answers. And yes, it may be the Age Of The Internet, which means we all have access to millions upon billions of pages of information — but do you have time to sort through all of that when your baby is crying and you have no idea what’s wrong? More importantly, most new parents don’t have the time to sort through all the online search results to figure out which sources are trustworthy and which aren’t worth your valuable time. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by questions, well, you’re not alone! That’s a pretty constant state for parents with new babies. A good starting point for better advice is parents who have been just where you are. At High Street Formulas, we want to help you find the best products, tips, and answers to help you raise your baby well. Start with these stellar bloggers for advice and information:
