The Bump : You’re mama to sons J.R. and Wells and now daughter Vivienne! How do your boys like having a baby sister?
Rosie : They love it. They are so sweet, gentle, and kind with her.
The Bump: What tips would you give new moms who are struggling to find enough time to get everything done?
Rosie : Try to think less about doing it all in a day and instead think about achieving it in a week.
The Bump : Let’s talk clothes! What are three items that all new moms should have in their closets?
Rosie : Great pair of wedges, RPM Pret Pants, highlighter colored pashmina!
The Bump : What is the #1 piece of advice you would give moms-to-be about dressing stylishly during their pregnancy?
Rosie : Stay true to your original sense of style. If you didn’t wear it before, don’t wear it now.
The Bump : What are your top 5 new mom must-haves?
Rosie : Philips AVENT Natural Bottle, steam sterilizers, swaddle clothes, RPM London Shopper, soothing playlist of classical music.

Rosie : Have some empathy for yourself.
The Bump : What’s been your craziest new-parent moment? How did you deal?
Rosie : My son just broke his arm. He’s only 18 mos old. I remembered that bones heal and it could have been worse. Keep perspective.
