Things New Mom shouldn’t worry about

Saying No: Your friends and family will be eager to meet your baby but you need your time to rest and adapt. Its okay to say no to any visits.

Baby crying: As a newborn your baby will cry out loud and you never know the reason. You will get worried but its normal. Mostly they cry due to wet diaper, colic or just need you to lift them.

Sneezing: Babies sneeze often. You get scared thinking baby might have caught cold. Sneezing in babies is good in a way it helps in cleaning their nose.

Startle reflex: Your baby will be in deep sleep and suddenly you see your baby lift both their hands and cry out loud. This is scary and you will worry that your baby is unable to get enough sleep. Its normal for babies to have this Moro reflex for initial 1 or 2 months

Feeding: At hospital they ask you to feed your newborn every 1 or 2 hours for 30 minutes. Every baby is different and they feed different amounts. Sometimes you may feel your baby does not feed that much. Don’t worry about it if your baby is gaining weight.

Finding me time: You will be so tired feeding and caring your baby that you will find it difficult to look after yourself. In the initial months or weeks you will rarely sleep for 2 hours. Don’t worry, after few weeks you will be able to increase the gap between feedings at night as your baby will gain weight and you can set a routine. Still you will need to continue feeding baby every 2 hours during the day. Its always good to ask for help so that you can get some rest.

Milestones: Growth will differ for each baby. You cant expect the weight, height and activities of your baby to be same as how it is mentioned by someone else. You leave this to pediatrician to decide. Never compare your baby with other babies.
