Hello Cafe Mom community. I'm 38 years old and I'm going to be a first time mom. I'm excited, nervous, scared and happy all at the same time.

Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Sleep when the baby sleeps.  No seriously.  Every single time.

HI! Congratulations on your new bundle! The best advice I got before I had my son was to learn all you can, then adapt that to what works for you. Every baby/mom/family is different!

Trust yourself, you are your child's expert, if they are acting strange you are the person who will know it better than anyone else.  Don't be afraid to change your mind about things.  If you started off pro-something and realize that there was a valid reason for the opposing view, don't feel married to your original point of view...unless you are in a debate group then stand your ground to the death!!
