The first 6 months are often the most overwhelming. Not only are you a first time mother and you have a baby to take care of, you are also still juggling the rest of your responsibilities.

As I put this booklet together, I feel slightly overwhelmed myself by the amount of things a new mother (and father) has to deal with in the first months after birth. I had forgotten what those first weeks were like when I was alone at home with my newborn. Couldn’t even manage to make myself a sandwich and if I did, I sure didn’t have time to eat it.

This booklet is full of questions and answers that cover almost all of the daily encounters that you and your baby will experience in your first 6 months. It is based on my experience and that of other mothers and should help you feel like you’re not alone in this new and exciting but sometimes overwhelming world of motherhood.

Having said all this, I’ve found that one of the most important things you have is your “gut feeling”. We have a special intuition when it comes to our kids… so go with it – if you feel that something’s not right it probably isn’t and please, call your pediatrician if you aren’t sure.

As I re-read the content for the 100th time, I wish that I’d had a small booklet like this one. If I’d known all of this stuff I might have had time to make myself that sandwich after all…

I hope that this booklet gives you the information you need to make your life easier. Learn! Enjoy! Share!
