Having a new baby is amazing, quite possibly the most amazing thing that you'll ever do, but it's exhausting, exhausting beyond belief.
It might not always be the fairytale that its portrayed to be and there might be (probably will be) times when you'll struggle. Its okay, you're not alone.
Theres no such thing as the perfect parent, we're all winging it, doing the best we can.
Be kind to yourself, take help when its offered and don't feel bad when rings don't go as planned.
Trust your instincts, you'll know more than you give yourself credit for, but accept that there will be times when your baby cries and you have absolutely no idea why.
Take photos, lots of them and print them for prosperity. Get in them, your future self will thank you and your child wont care that your hair isn't washed or that you're a few pounds heavier than you'd rather be.
Take care of yourself. Eat when you can, sleep when you can and enjoy it when you can. And don't forget to breathe.
