It might feel like an endless spiral of nappy changes, burping and sleepless nights but the newborn phase is going to be over well before you can say, I’ve got this.
Your baby is developing at a million miles an hour and is taking in a mountain of new experiences for themselves. Some, like smiling, will be shared lovingly with you. Others you won’t even realise are occurring.
There is comfort in knowing that this crazy phase will soon pass, but there are also so many reasons you’ll never want to forget it.
- Tiny fingers and toes
- That smell…gah!
- That downy back of the neck hair softness
- Windy smiles
- Ridiculously tiny outfits
- Yawns and stretches
- Chest nuzzles
- Milk gulps
- First smiles
- Tiny bottoms – enough said
- Watching them sleep
So amidst the chaos, be sure to stop, reflect and enjoy all the tiny marvellous moments that make up your little ones first months on earth because in no time at all you’ll be chasing a toddler.
