When you have a new baby, try not to expect too much of yourself or of your baby.

It can be really easy to think that your baby should be capable of sleeping for longer, of self-settling, going longer between feeds – so it makes a difference to know more about how babies work so you know what it is normal about baby behaviour.

It can also be easy to feel that you should know what to do with your baby, that you can do everything without help and manage the nights as well as the days. Be supported and looked after.
