Advice for Parenting Future Kings for the Duchess of Cambridge, from Viva Editions's Blythe Lipman

Share Article

Blythe Lipman, author of Help! My Baby Came Without Instructions and Help! My Toddler Came Without Instructions, has advice for everyone from new parents Kate Middleton and Prince William, to ordinary non-royals.

Bringing home baby can be one of the most exhilarating and nerve-wracking days in a new parent's life, especially if those parents happen to be British royalty. As an infant care specialist with over twenty-five years of experience, Blythe Lipman has some tips for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and for any new parents who just discovered their bundle of joy doesn't come with instructions.

  • While the baby sleeps, take a 20-minute power nap. Everything will still be there after, and they will seem more manageable after resting.
  • Plan at least two hours a week of time just for you.
  • Keep the camera out, ready, loaded with film, and batteries charged.
  • Don’t forget to eat. Keep up the energy to take care of the baby and stay healthy.

Blythe Lipman says to sum up, "Don’t forget to take care of yourself. Be proud of who you are as a wife, mother, and as a woman; or as a husband, father, and as a man. Make your heart smile by enjoying each and every minute you spend with your baby. Life is wonderful! Your baby is your most precious possession. There is nothing more exciting on earth than having the opportunity to watch her grow, explore, and learn—the opportunity to expose her to all the good things life has to offer, the opportunity to teach her all you know. Most of all, relax, have fun, and enjoy this miracle you have created."
