Care for your newborn

If you have had no prior experience with babies, care for a newborn can seem like a mysterious, impossible task. Some doctors theorize that there should be a fourth trimester, as a newborn is really not prepared for the outside world. Your little baby is in essence, still a fetus. The responsibility of caring for this helpless little thing can be overwhelming. Ask any new parent about giving their baby its first bath and they'll probably detail their anxiety more than the actual event. Luckily, the compilation of information below gives you plenty of practical advice on how to care for your little bundle. After refining your skills during these first few tumultuous months, you'll soon be a newborn expert and you'll look back on your first diaper change or bath and laugh (hopefully)
