the first days at home with a newborn baby are completely overwhelming – especially for first time parents. you feel an overwhelming amount of love for your little one, and it gives you an overwhelming sense of joy just looking at your little miracle. at the same time, you also feel an overwhelming amount of insecurity: am i doing this right? why won’t he settle? shouldn’t i just know my baby’s needs and why she’s crying? will i ever get a decent amount of sleep again? (the answer to that last question is: sure, but not in the next few years… ;))
it’s important to remember: things will get easier! baby will cry less! you will sleep more!
and one thing will remain: the overwhelming amount of love you have for your little one –
even when one day they are not so little anymore at all.
