With 19 kids (and counting!), it’s safe to say Michelle Duggar knows a thing or two about motherhood.
While her methods may sometimes be controversial (the Duggars don’t even allow their kids to hug before marriage), when it comes to things like maintaining your sanity and sleep schedule while raising a small army, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone more knowledgeable than Michelle.
Fortunately, as you know if you watch 19 Kids and Counting online, Michelle is more than happy to share her pro tips with the world.
The Duggar matriarch took to her blog recently to dole out words of wisdom to some new moms who had sent her questions.
Considering we rarely hear Michelle talk about anything that’s not related to her church or her family, it’s refreshing to hear her stressing the importance of “me time” for new mothers:
“Take naps at the same time the baby does,” Michelle writes. “Even if it’s just for an hour. Afterwards, you’ll feel so much better and be ready to tackle the world.”
Michelle adds that parents should be sure to “have a date night every week:”
“[Dates] are key to building and strengthening the marriage relationship, because that gives your children stability in their lives. It reminds them that their parents love each other and their relationship is a top priority in the family.”
Of course, in Michelle’s book the best way a husband and wife can show that they love each other is popping out a litter of young ones. Last we heard, Michelle Duggar is still hoping for baby number 20!
