I just had my first baby two weeks ago and I've barely gotten the basics down ( bottle feeding, diapers.) it seems like the last two weeks all I've had time for is the above mentioned activities plus a tiny bit I sleep and house upkeep in between. I'm a stay at home mom. I'm also feeling guilty that I'm not giving her enough stimulation. I hold her only when she's cranky or feeding and maybe I don't talk to her enough. I want to so more skin to skin contact but it's so blasted cold now and she hates being changed in and out of her clothes. Should I be playing with her for the hour or half hour she is awake and content and not fussing? Or is it too early to matter? I wish someone would just give me a list of things to do everyday. Im not even sure how to play with a baby this small.
