Last week, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi gave birth to Lorenzo Dominic LaValle (her first little meatball with Jionni LaValle), and although she claims she’s “slowly getting her swag back,” the 24-year-old Jersey Shore reality star was quick to admit to her fans that things aren’t immediately peachy after having a baby:

Post birth isn’t so comfy and glamorous. But my son is FABULOUS.

MTV created a sort of tongue-in-cheek advice post for Baby LaVelle (“Honor the Holy Trinity of ‘Gym, Tan, Laundry'”), but what about some postpartum advice for the new mother who’s undoubtedly learning the hard lesson that having a baby isn’t all about photo ops and Twitter updates (though, thanks to the latter, we do now know she can fit in her heels again)?

How about you, readers? Any moms out there with words of wisdom to offer Snooki?
