John Stamos shares parenting advice from Bob Saget.

When a baby is born, most people expect that parents will immediately connect with the new infant, but that's not always the case. Of course, there are parents that feel an instant love and deep connection with their brand new baby and that's normal.

John Stamos recalled a conversation with his late friend Bob Saget about this very thing. Stamos became a dad at the age of 54 and confided in his friend about not feeling connected to his son, and Saget gave him a small gem of wisdom to hold onto.

In the caption of a sweet video of Stamos pretending to sneeze into tissues while holding his son, he wrote, "For the first few months I didn’t feel as connected with my son as I thought I would. Bob Saget said just wait until the first time he laughs at you." Stamos continued, "If this doesn’t cheer you up on a Wednesday, nothing will."

'New Mom Comics' lets other new parents know that they are not alone.

Alison H. Wong is a new mom.

Diapers, baby videos, and unyielding cuteness has become her life. But she isn't only a mom; she's also a freelance design consultant with a knack for comic art. So what did the new mom do when her parenting got ... erm ... difficult?

Wong merged two loves of her life together to create "New Mom Comics."

"I created 'New Mom Comics' to let other new parents know that they are not alone," Wong wrote in an email. "When I met other new moms, I realized that we had the same issues and drew these comics because I wish I had something like this to get me through the first year."
