That is all a natural part of being a Mom :)
We all make mistakes with the first baby and hopefully learn through that experience. The life style changes were the biggest surprise to me. But I agree with the previous post, that when that newborn is placed in your arms, all your natural Mommy instincts kick into gear!
Before my first baby I read every baby-care book on the market! Talk about confusing! Most of their advice and suggestions didn't apply to my little one - so we learned what to do and how to communicate together.
My advice? Just take time to bond and your baby will let you know what he/she needs/wants/likes and dislikes
