When my daughter develops a high fever at 2 a.m., I call my mom. If I need a good laugh about postpartum appearances, I consult my former college roommates turned mothers. When I am curious as to whether my son is reaching all his developmental milestones, I ask his doctor. The list goes on and on, but like many other mamas, I have amazing resources — people, books, and the Internet — to help me figure out the best way to raise my children. And, of course there's always my husband, my motherly instincts, and common sense. Who is the first person you turn to for parenting advice?
