Newborn babies seem mostly to sleep, eat, cry and poo. Your first days and weeks with your newborn can be full of joy. But as you and your baby get to know each other and bond in your early days together, your day will also involve cuddling and playtime. Your baby will give you the most important information—how he or she likes to be treated, talked to, held, and comforted. All babies are different – their eating and sleeping patterns often change, and it may take some time for them to settle into a routine.
