In your first month as parents, a lot of things happen. Physical recovery from giving birth, baby’s adjustment to living life on the outside, feeding-sleeping-comfort needs that not only have to be figured out but they keep changing too!
From day one, your baby will have the need to eat. But what will that look like for you, and how do your baby’s needs change in the first week, two weeks, month?
Feeding the baby becomes one of the most central parts of new parenting, with lots of potential for added stress.
