What do you do now? How will ever learn all you need to know? Below are some tips about getting to know your newborn right from the beginning. I hope you enjoy them!

The only thing a newborn cares about is food. How do you know if this little eating, sleeping, pooping machine is getting enough food? Don’t worry. He will let you know! Does he wet his diaper at least every two hours? Then he is good to go. And just as he has settled into a routine, don’t be alarmed when he seem fussy all the time and hungry to boot. This is normal. At ages 2, 6, and 12 weeks, all babies go through growing spurts. It’s natural, so simply adjust the amount of milk.
