Your baby

One thing I’ve learnt since becoming a mama is that babies, especially newborns, are unpredictable. When they are young they develop so quickly and change on a daily basis. What might have been the norm one day, won’t be the next. And just as you think you’ve sussed things out, your little one will turn everything on its head and you’ll start all over again. It’s okay, it’s completely normal. Anything goes with a new born baby. If you are looking for some information that you can’t find below please let me know.
