Bethenny Frankel: “I Don’t Listen” to Parenting Advice

 Alex Oliveira/

New mom Bethenny Frankel doesn't need any tips to help raise 3-month-old daughter Bryn.

"The truth is I didn't listen to that much advice while I was pregnant or after because everyone has an opinion and you want to experience it on your own," says the Bethenny Getting Married star, 39, who wed Jason Hoppy last March.

But Frankel has a few words of wisdom to dispense.

"Sleep while the baby's sleeping! Sleep is way more important than exercise, that’s all you need to be worried about right now," she tells

The Bravo reality star relies on her "Brest Friend" to help Bryn to breast feed.

"It's beyond. My neck hurts because I forgot it and I haven’t used it in the past couple of days, but basically it’s like a tube around you or a shelf  that the baby sits in when they're breast feeding and even if you’re not breast feeding it’s a good shelf to burp the baby. It literally has a place to put the remote on it, the breast pump… it's awesome!" she says.

Bryn, who was born five weeks early and only weighed in at 4 lbs., 11 oz, is growing quickly.

Frankel tells Us, "She was a preemie so she was so small at first but she’s getting to be a bigger girl now."
