Remember when your baby was brand new? What was your most irrational fear?

I sure do =]

One of my biggest fears was hurting her fontanels! Now I don't even notice them, bwahaha.

So if you can remember back that far...what was your biggest, most irrational fear about your kids?

  • kabbot . . I used to worry about that too. And cait . . I used to worry about my daughter's head also. I would brush her hair ever so gently!! Oh, and I was afraid of smothering her with my boob while breastfeeding.

  • I always thought I would break his little arms and legs while changing him, like I was too rough or something of course I wasn't, but I was still so scared.

  • OMG...I had a horrible fear of leaving my daughter somewhere too...and the funny thing is that I worry just as much with my second one as I do my first. Just today as I was driving I hadn't heard my baby for a few mins and my heart stopped until I checked my rearview mirror and made sure she was there! lol
