  • Sleep when you can, and cherish your baby. She will start to need something soon, feed and change her, and youwil know the rest by instinct.

  • JUST RELAX, AND MAKE SURE YOUR BABY IS BEING FED EVERY FEW HOURS, BUPRED, ETC ETC.... YOU'LL BE FINE. TRY TO SLEEP WHEN SHE SLEEPS, AND IF YOU FEEL THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE BABY CALL YOUR PEDIATRICIAN. YOUR NOT SUPPOSED TO DO ANYTHING HONEY.... AND CONGRADULATIONS...

  • Keep her belly dry and clean. Don't let it get wet. Sponge bath her...I was scared to this with my son so my mother in law helped me,he was and still is my first. white noise works wonders if nothing else works. Use a fan or shhhh sound. My son loved when I shhh in his ears. If you need any more advice just message me. I wasnt able to breastfeed so if you are doing that or wanting to I am no help but there are a TON of places your can go for free to help out. good luck and enjoy all the sleep you can!!!
