This is what I do, pull the yarn to tighten up after I've made the first stitch. It pulls up the extra yarn from the last stitch in the row below too. Then knit the next couple sts a little tighter. I never had good results from slipping the first stitch, mine looks looser and messier than just knitting the first one.
