My Baby – Week 1
Congratulations! You did it! Those long months of pregnancy are behind you and you’ve welcomed your little one into the world. Even with the most routine labor and delivery, you may still be feeling exhausted, sore, exhilarated, and overwhelmed. In a moment, everything has changed and this new person, who can barely seem to stay awake, has become the most fascinating thing you could imagine. Enjoy these first days of inspecting her tiny fingers and toes, watching for those twitching sleep smiles, and cuddling your little bundle of joy.
You may be surprised to find that your new baby is just as exhausted as you are. In fact, newborns only spend 10 percent of their time awake.
This week everything in your life has changed and there is really only one thing you need to focus on: getting all the rest and sleep that you can.
