..expect chaos and no sleep :)
But I mean that in the best way possible!
Everything changes.. if it's your first babe.. your world is about to get rocked.. and all for the better! Everything else comes second fiddle to making sure your babe is eating, sleeping, pooping & peeing like they should.. it sounds so easy.. but it's a game changer!
You can expect broken sleep, sometimes confusion on what the baby needs, learning their cries and cues, messing diapers, spit up, and emotions that run high! Try to be open and honest with your partner or family on what YOU, as a Mama, need help with.. don't try to do it all yourself. You might expect some pain from healing, soreness and just overall exhaustion.. it's all normal. You can expect a new routine, or trying to make one.. but everything now revolves around a baby - not yourself all the time :)
He was a much different baby from my first though, so a lot of it was new.
