Before I delivered my first baby, many parents would tell me “Newborns are easy, they sleep forever, don’t need toys and if you breastfeed, you won’t even need to wash bottles”. Coupled with a childbirth class, a newborn care class and a breastfeeding class… I felt confident! What I came to learn is that much of my baby’s sleep depended on being held, and that breastfeeding isn’t always straightforward. It’s especially hard to apply what has been learned when you’re sleep deprived and baby won’t stop crying, it’s easy to start to feel like a failure. So, let’s get real. Newborns are hard, especially if it’s your first. Your routines get shaken up in unexpected ways and like many new parents I wasn’t as prepared as I thought I was. Well-meaning friends and family came to “help” (with good intentions), but would instead stay too long and overstimulate my new baby. I’ve been there, those experiences are still fresh as a daisy in my mind.
