Infant - baby care

Infant - baby care


Once you have your baby, you may feel confident, happy, unsure, depressed or overwhelmed - all in the same day.

This is a time of learning for both you and your baby. Try to be patient. You and your baby are starting to know each other. When you learn your baby's sleeping, eating and crying patterns, your confidence will soar.

Make good use of all the support you'll feel around you. Call on your family, friends, health care provider and other parents for advice and reassurance.
