Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Though it may feel like you are loosing brain cells, hormonoes and all the other preoccupying worries are the main culprit on brain function loss. So no you don't actually lose brain cells, unless your banging your head against the walls at night because of insomnia.
