It’s a special time for every mum, whether you choose to breast-feed or bottle-feed. Your cosy snuggles strengthen the bond between you as you get to know each other better.
Very young babies only have tiny tummies, so they'll need to feed every couple of hours. You might be bigger, but all this feeding will tire your body out too! I
f they take a nap try to grab a snooze between feeds yourself, so you can enjoy the time you have together – they grow up fast!
Sometimes it's hard to know whether your little growing boy or girl is getting enough milk. But if you can see that they're swallowing and you're changing several wet nappies a day, then you're on the right track. If you're still worried or have any other problems, don't hesitate to ask your health visitor about them. Your health visitor will also monitor their weight which should help to reassure you.
