If you’re a first time mom, you have to admit that you were scared shitless the first night home with your baby. Hell, maybe even the first week or month!
It’s only been 3 months since Mackenzie was born but it feels like a lifetime ago already!
That first night home with her was so nerve-wracking! I remember thinking about how many times I would have to get up during the night to feed her, to change her. Would I get any sleep? Would anyone sleep? Ever again?
I can also recall being so nervous about over feeding her. The nurse told us to give her 20 ML every 2-3 hours. That’s less than ounce. I cried on my couch because at her 4 day old check up, she weighed only 6 lbs. She was 6 lbs 10 oz at birth and 6 lbs 6 oz when we left the hospital 2 days later.
Oh and no one told me that babies do this freaky eye roll thing where they look like they’re possessed or having a seizure. It freaked me out every time Mackenzie did it! Luckily it stopped after a few weeks!
The soft spot- you know on the top of their head?? It pulsates. What. The. Hell.
Babies are small, fragile little creatures and I was so scared to dress her. I thought I was gonna break her arms and legs. She literally wore only onesies for the first few weeks lol.
Somehow we made it to almost week 15 and I feel like an old pro now! I hope our next baby is as good as Mackenzie is.
What were you scared/nervous about when you brought your baby home?
Thanks for reading!
See you soon,
