The first weeks with a newborn baby
There’s something very exciting and special about being all alone for the very first time during the first few weeks with your newborn baby, but it can also be quite frightening. This is when you will begin to realise that you cannot go back to how it was before. You’re now totally responsible for a brand new human being, the responsibility may seem much too bear. You may have a secret wish to go back home to your mum and ask her to take over. Or you may be the sort of person who just knows that you’ll get through it all, and that everything will turn out fine in the end.
In these first weeks with a newborn baby, you’ll find there is a great deal to learn and all of it at the same time. Today it might seem quite impossible, but in a matter of just a few months you’ll look back and wonder how it could have all seemed so hard.
Such true words from the introduction of birth to five by the NHS, but no matter how hard it gets, keep going, it does and will get better. From the mum of a five year old now.
