  • Call the Department of child services and report her!!! Then you get some essentials diapers, wipes, clothes, formula, bottles, binkies, blanket, care seat...See if any of your friends have baby stuff you can borrow. So when DCFS shows up at your house to do the report it shows that you took the inititive to take care of your child. Its rough taking care of a newborn be prepared to not sleep at ALL!! and baby poop is not cute at all. GL!!

  • Wait what?
    Explain more, this is your baby? and you don't know what to do?
    I'm not being rude, I just don't understand what's going on.

  • Yes on buying essentials as stated above, and callind cps. New borns eat (drink) every 3-4 hours. Get formula and mix as it says on the box anywhere between 3 to 5 oz each feeding! (most babies stop when they are full)! Once you've gotten these necessities in, set up an appointment with a pediatrician to get more info on baby care. Is your Mom nearby? she may want to help? Good Luck and congratulations!
