Time must slow down for new parents to make, baby, mom, and dad happy. For example, parents can’t rush a newborn to sleep. The diaper must be done right, or it could lead to more cleanup work. Babies want things immediately, but they too must learn to be patient with you.
There are times when babies can drain your energy away, and you will need time to recharge. If no one can help you at the time and you’ve done all you can to calm a crying baby (who is healthy and safe) then take a breather. You must be your judge to decide when is a good time to return for full attention.
If you are complacent, careless, or distracted, you are liable to make harmful mistakes. Check and recheck your work, such as the temperature of the formula and bath. Drive defensively when a baby is on board.
If you make mistakes, learn from them. The child needs you so don’t give up. Many organizations can help if spouse, relatives, or friends are not accessible. In time, you will have enough experience to be more self-sufficient.
Enjoy Your Baby
It may seem impossible at the time, but babies grow up fast. Talk and play with your baby. Take your baby to places show your child off to the world (a park may do). They will be teenagers before you know it.
