Hilaria Baldwin reveals what age she finds the hardest, and it’s not terrible twos

The mom-of-four also shared advice for first-time moms

Correction: On December 27, 2020, Hilaria Baldwin addressed “chatter online” surrounding her culture and identity. Hilaria clarified that she was born in Boston, Massachusetts and not Mallorca, Spain like her CAA Speaker’s biography previously stated prior to being updated. HOLA! USA’s original story published on May 4, 2018 noted that Hilaria was born in Spain and was raising her kids to speak her native language, Spanish. While Hilaria speaks to her children in Spanish, her statement on Instagram regarding where she was born means her native language, or language of the country where she was born, is not Spanish.

If there is someone you can trust when it comes to mommy matters, it’s Hilaria Baldwin. As the mom of four little ones (Carmen, six, Rafael, four, Leonardo, three and one-year-old Romeo), the Spanish beauty has garnered years of hands-on experience within the kids' department. Not only that, but she also likes to keep it real on her social media and her podcast, Mom Brain, which she co-hosts with Daphne Oz. So when asked what age she finds to be the most challenging, Hilaria replied: “I think three is the hardest age.”

On Wednesday, we caught up with Alec Baldwin’s wife during an event to celebrate the launch of Tommee Tippee’s new glass bottles at New York City’s Magic Hour. “I think three is really a tricky age because they have a lot of words and they're bigger and you expect more from them,” she added. “Three is just an age where they're expressing themselves a lot and it's just tricky. They say three in age are the horrible threes and it's an amazing age, but you kind of have to have a lot of patience.”

During the event, Hilaria revealed Tommee Tippee was the first bottle she ever used with her daughter Carmen and has been using them ever since. “It was the most breast-like and for me I'm a big breast feeder,” she shared. “It was very easy to transition when I had to go back to work.”

As for her advice to all first-time moms, she said, “Don't stress too much. The really good advice that was given to me is that no baby ever died just from crying.”

The Living Clearly Method author continued by stating that when you’re a new mom you often tend to get overwhelmed by the baby’s crying. “And that overwhelmed thing can be suffocating,” she said. “I found that if I just take a deep breath and realize, ‘okay, the baby's crying now, but I'm going to figure out what's wrong.’ Usually it's one of a very few things, so just take a deep breath and don't get stressed out,” she said.
