Hello Mommas, I need your advice! I am a first time mom to a beautiful and healthy 11 week old baby boy. Ever since we brought him home from the hospital i have been so anxious. When i first came home, i truly had the baby blues. - still believe i do to some extent but believe it's mostly anxiety. I will not be going back to work, and will be staying home with the baby. I think my anxiety stems from "i didn't think it would be this hard." I'm always so concerned that i'm not doing everything right. I'm worried about a schedule, and when he is supposed to sleep. I'm worried about when he goes any where if he will be thrown off his schedule - will he not be happy? I'm even more worried about taking him in public alone, i'm so just so afraid that i won't be able to console him the right way if i am in that location. i'm anxious about him getting over stimulated, because he does a lot and becomes almost helpless to calm down. This makes it so i am just worried if we are around any friends and family, that they MIGHT overstimulate him.Momma's, please help me out here. I just want to be the best version of myself that i can be, for my child and husband. Any tips and tricks?
