Once you have your new daughter or
son, you may feel confident, unsure, elated, depressed, excited,
sad and sometimes overwhelmed.
Try to be patient with yourself. You and your baby will be
getting to know each other. With each new day, you'll learn a
little more and will feel a bit more confident.
Make good use of all the support you'll feel around you. Call on
your friends, family, health care provider and other parents for
advice and reassurance.
Your baby will need regular immunizations (shots) to stay healthy and to prevent serious diseases and even death.
Please check with your health care provider for the recommended schedule.
