* the is NO child manual...EVERY child is different, go by your instincts!

* Use nappy cream/barrier cream everytime on your babys bottom....its makes those first poo's /mecconium changes a LOT easier!

*"sleep when the baby sleeps" is easier said than done. It's ok to doodle on the internet or fold laundry while your baby sleeps.

Don't ever feel like you are doing something wrong with your baby. Having the first one is trial and error. Parenting a child will never be perfected.

Always be honest with your child. Lying to them or trying to protect them from all the big bad stuff of the world is only going to be a disservice to them.

Most of the hardest parts of a newborn are only temporary. Labor pains, exhaustion, pain while nursing, dirty diapers every half hour... You can do it.
Thank you tasha_mae for my awesome siggy!

Go with your instincts in any situation.

Let yourself off the hook for doing the things you always said you would never do. There's the "book" way of doing things, and then there's reality.

Going back to work and pumping enough to feed your child is harder than it seems. If you have to supplement with formula your child will still be okay.

It will be sad to watch your tiny baby get bigger, but there's so many more new things to look forward to at each stage. Enjoy them.
