I just read this interesting article on CNN about 5 mistakes that parents make with their newborns.
Link to the article.
Some of it sounds like common sense but other things were a surprise. I think the average person would be elated if their newborn slept thru the night and perish the thought of having to wake them up every 2 hours (hello sleep deprivation!).
But if they need to eat every 2 hours during the day, it stands to reason that they would need to do the same at night.
Gosh, I have so much to learn....
