In the Baby Zone with Holly Madison
Motherhood sure looks good on Holly Madison.
Nearly five years after splitting from former boyfriend Hugh Hefner and leaving the Playboy mansion, the actress, entrepreneur and entertainer became a first-time mom to daughter Rainbow Aurora, born in March.
But, like any new parent, Holly is the first to admit that she’s still figuring out this whole parenting thing. She readily shares parenting questions, answers, insights (and ridiculously cute baby pictures, of course!) on Twitter.
In the meantime, just like her former The Girls Next Door co-star, Kendra Wilkinson, Holly’s busy experiencing the highs and lows of parenthood. Check out her best (and worst!) moments.
What’s your golden rule of parenting?
I don’t really have one yet. It’s all so new, I’m still playing it by ear. I guess my strongest theme is to take everything moment by moment and enjoy my precious time with my baby. Everyone says they grow up so fast!
Describe the best moment of parenting so far?
Getting to see the smile on my baby girl’s face is definitely my best parenting moment.
And the worst?
My worst parenting moment was not being able to sleep the first night I brought her back from the hospital. She was crying all night and I was so tired my eyes were rolling back into my head. I was scared I was just going to pass out.
Best advice you ever got?
I’m not really sure I have received much advice that applies. Every baby is so different; there are no cure-alls in parenting. Every baby reacts differently to things.
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
A good swaddle cloth. They are so multi-purpose; you can use them as swaddles, blankets, nursing covers, shade from the sun, spit-up mops, to create a barrier between your baby and a public changing table —so many things!
Finish this sentence: You know you’re in the Baby Zone when…
… you can’t sleep but you still have the drive to keep going no matter how tired you are.
