What's the best helpful tip you've received from another mom?

One I use a lot is to use frozen caprisuns as ice packs.

My favorite tips were about feeding the baby...

That if the baby doesn´t burp after some time of trying, it's ok to let him be! I was going crazy with the burping, patting his back for 15 minutes sometimes, waking him up most of the times and making everybody miserable.

My mom gave me the tips on breastfeeding while lying down, and that of course led to co-sleeping, wich in my case was the BEST desition I ever made... I could sleep again!!!

That's a good point about burping, I was the same way until I figured that out!
