The first week of your baby’s life can be a time of great joy, but also a great deal of uncertainty. This is normal: you’ve never parented this little one before, and he’s bound to have growth problems. Keep in mind that just as you get to know your child, your child is also making a huge transition.
They have never lived outside the womb before, and this adaptation is of great importance to them. “Children this age are transitioning to the rhythms of their new environment while eating, sleeping and being held,” explains Natasha Burgert, MD, pediatrician and Philips Avent spokesperson.
Usually in the first week of your baby’s life there are many questions. You’ll have questions about everything from how many hours your baby should sleep to the right color for your baby’s poop.
