JJ everyone keeps telling me that the first 6 weeks are the most difficult. We just have to keep in mind that it does get better. And if we need help to ask for it. I've also felt the same as you. Plus whilst your in hospital they should be showing you how to do the basic things, like how to bath baby, swaddling, nappy changes, feeding.
I just realised that I've been given the book 'What to expect in the first year', has anyone used this book?
