I feel a little bad for supermodel Miranda Kerr and actor Orlando Bloom’s baby Flynn. Of course, wee Flynn will have a loving home of two parents who have stayed friends over their divorce, but those are two gorgeous parents. I mean, he’s a cute nugget of a human right now what with his chubby cheeks (probably Miranda’s) and teeny infant size (babies usually come packaged that way), but he has a lot to live up to as far as swoon factor. Smoldering glances like Legolas’ don’t just happen over night. He’ll have to start honing those now.

Thankfully, mama Miranda Kerr has his rearing down pat. Here are a few lessons gleaned from her interview with Lucky magazine:

On how babies like organization

“I’ve found that routine is very important for children; even though they’re quite malleable, they do feel safe in their schedule.”

On baby weight for the mom and the baby

“I didn’t put any pressure on myself. I was focused on having a healthy baby — and I had a 10-pound baby!”

On breastfeeding and it’s surprising dietary benefits

“I just loved breastfeeding. It was something that came very easily to me and it helped speed up my metabolism.”

On having a sense of humor like a baby

“Motherhood is the best. It’s rewarding to see a little being develop and to grow into an individual. Flynn makes me laugh so much. We have the same sense of humor, which no one else understands. I’ll look at something and laugh, and then he’ll laugh, and it’s so contagious.”

On moms having time to themselves

“Life can get so busy for everyone, regardless of what your profession is, but it’s taking the time to have moments of gratitude that makes it meaningful. And it does take discipline, a consciousness to do that. Being grateful and happy is a choice, I think.”
