As an experienced Mum of four I often have a nose in this forum and sometimes answer the queries / questions based on my own experience. But.... I have been really struck by just how anxious some new mums seem to be. It looks as if some mums are so concerned about doing or not doing the right thing about every single aspect of looking after their babies, that it is sucking out all the joy from the process. I don't remember being like this and had a 'just get on with it' attitude, trusting my instincts and taking cues from my babies' moods. I guess things like forums weren't around to turn to anyway then (youngest is 12). I urge any anxious mum to relax and trust yourself to do a good job as this time goes by in a flash and you don't want to miss any of the lovely and funny moments by worrying too much about feeds, naps, computer games, potty training etc. etc.
