So you've had a baby, now what?!
Suddenly from being relaxed, resting and being consciously aware of every position of yours, you are now in a race against time with a screaming newborn and people around you constantly telling about how he/she should be "well-fed" all the time!
(P.S- From one new mom to another- here's a secret. If there is someone who tells you that a baby takes the feed just x times in a day or you can feed just y times in a day- that's the biggest myth!)
But jokes apart- this is one of the most beautiful and yet exhausting journey for a newborn. Be rest assured that just like you, the baby feels new, restless and can sense your uneasiness too! So learn to relax, understand how to nurse your child well.
