I'm only 4 days post-partum, so I guess I just have the baby blues. But I feel like I cannot do anything right according to what you're "supposed" to do... She likes to sleep for long periods of time, and I like my sleep too, so I don't wake her up at night to feed her. I do during the day though. And then I feel like I'm not feeding her enough, but she's not giving me any signals. Grr. I have been trying to feed her every couple of hours today, but I just think I've ruined my milk supply already...I've got soo many anxieties about being a new mommy. It's killing me...
Any help out there?

#1 CALM DOWN!!!! You are doing great! When baby comes home in the beginning it is a sleep fest, one in which you will pray for later. Again calm down! Feed baby as you have today, wake baby and feed baby. Make sure you wait 4 hours, in between feedings, if you have to wake baby, if not follow baby's cues. You have not ruined your supply, please get that out of your head. If you follow baby's cue you two will be perfect!!! You two are going to be great! If you ever need any help or encouragement I would be more than happy. Hang in there and follow baby's cues. You are an amazing mother!
