For new mommies & daddies:

The first few weeks are extremely challenging. Do not feel guilty or like a bad parent if you cry and get frustrated. This is a healthy release.
(Friends and family of new parents: Don't ask if they are getting any sleep. Of course they aren't and you are just rubbing it in.)

It takes about 8 weeks before you get your "sea legs". This is also when your baby will be more active and fun to watch.

At ten weeks you will feel competent to handle daily tasks. Take advantage of this new found confidence to get out in the world.
