  • if you mean is it normal. yup. just breath and know that you will be ok, you will figure things out, trust your instincts. you aren't gonna hurt your baby (i was always scared i'd over feed, bathe wrong and who knows what else under the sun). but really, you are now responsible for a little person who can't do anything for themselves, so yes its expected

  • Everyone is. It's normal. You'll adjust...and if you feel like you're going crazy with all of the new mommy stuff, set the baby in a bouncy seat/crib and take 5 min.'s to yourself. The biggest thing to be nervous about is taking on all of the responsibilities. It can be overwhelming. Get your friends and family to help with babysitting as much as possible. Good luck!
