Nobody is a "parenting expert." If they were, we would all know exactly what will work to get your kid potty trained, no baby would ever cry, and we'd all sleep through the night.
But when you're a new parent, it can help to get some feedback from someone who has gone through it - and who won't sugarcoat it. I'll offer my own insight as well as research your question - I'm a journalist by trade! - and get back to you as quick as I can. I may even transform it into a full-length blog post! Let me know whatever question is on your mind about being a new dad (or mom!), parenting, babies, pregnancy, childbirth, and more. Questions are confidential (The name is only to help me out).
