Overview: Weeks 3 & 4
You’re about to celebrate the first month of your baby’s life and – surprise, surprise! – you’re still not an expert. You have continuing questions and worries and doubts, and while we can’t promise that will end any time soon (if ever), Babble continues your newborn care guide to see you through the rough patches and offer advice. We’re focusing on new and highly prevalent concerns – like colic, supplementing and post-partum depression – but check in previous guides for more first-month advice. And feel free to add to our Reader Tips as you discover your own coping strategies.
But as always, don’t forget the most important resource of all – your instincts. No one knows your baby – and your body – like you. So read as much as you can but also stop and listen to the things your body and your hunches are telling you. You’re the mom, after all.
