  • If she's cold, her skin will be cold, if she's sick, her nose will probably run and maybe a cough. If she's healthy, she eats, gains weight, and learns. The doctor will let you know if she's not healthy in any area.

  • Oh, just make sure to go to all her wellness checkups when she's suppose to have them.

  • You will be with your baby day & night. In time (not long!) you'll know what he/she normally feels like, looks like, breathes like, poops like... You will be able to tell when something is wrong.
    If you need help to handle illness you can speak to a pediatrician, nurse, or midwife about what you can do to get prepared for motherhood.

    There are books and classes to help. But I believe in instinct. After all, books & classes, doctors & nurses are "modern." Instinct, nurturing, Motherhood are as old as old gets.

    Stay strong and nurture your baby, you will be okay. So will he/she. :-)

  • I know this is going to sound like no help, but honestly, you will just know. Let me ask you this - when your SO comes in the room, even before he says anything, can you tell that he's in a bad mood, or if he's really happy? Do you know when your friends are feeling down but are trying to hide it?

    You probably know these things because you know them, so you pick up on the signs that things aren't right with them. It will be the same with your baby. You're going to get to know your baby, and you're going to be able to pick up on the signs. Is their nose running a lot? Are they coughing? Are they more fussy than usual? Do they have a fever (lol - and a thermometer will tell you this - you don't even have to guess) All of these things will help you. Plus, as the pp said, go to the appts, and talk to your baby's Dr, and you'll learn.
