As I left the hospital with my 48h old daughter, almost 17 years ago, I looked down at her car seat, then looked around and thought "someone is going to stop me, they will realise I have no idea how to do this!"
But, guess what? No one stopped me and she turned out more than alright! And so will your baby...
However, I know this is daunting, I know the internet is a very scary place for new parents, you google "rash on my newborn" (the common neonatorum toxicum, little pimples appearing within a few days after birth, which is very normal!) and you think your baby has contracted some sort of horrible disease.
These pages are here to guide you through the next few weeks, months and early years in term of sleep, feeding and behaviour.
Mum to Sarah 16 and Noah, 9 (both turned out to be healthy, happy kids - so far!)
