I was terrified when DS was born. I really had only the barest of experience with babies and had only changed about 3 diapers in my life, none of the dirty. I didn't know what I was doing and felt so clueless. By the time he was a week old I recognized his cues, knew when he was hungry (even though people would argue with me all of the time), tired, uncomfortable, etc. There were still times I would scratch my head, but ultimately I believe no one knows their child like his/her Mommy. We are usually the ones that they spend the most time with and are therefore most intune. Within a couple of days I knew I didn't like the way MIL changed his diaper even though I had only done a handfull in comparison to her thousands. When I changed him, it didn't leak, when she did it, it did. She also caused his umbilical cord to become irritated with over cleaning because she wouldn't just listen to me......Anyway, I'm just ranting now...
