Your baby's first year...

Baby chat

Your pregnancy is over and after those long 9 months, you finally meet your newborn baby, now begins the real fun! The first week or two may feel a little crazy and it’ll take some getting used to. There’s no instruction manual for your baby, but there’s nothing to be worried about, instead take each week as it comes and enjoy the learning and bonding experience you’ll go through together. If you’re feeling a little unsure, why not take a look at what you can expect from the first few weeks with your baby.

Just as your baby developed quickly in the womb, the first year of your baby’s development will involve a lot of changes and growth. It’s a very exciting time for new mums and dads, with plenty of milestones for you to enjoy. It can be easy to get anxious if you feel like your baby development isn’t what you’d expect but every baby will develop at a slightly different pace.

Whilst it’s good to keep an eye on your baby’s development, don’t worry too much if it doesn’t stick to a rigid time-frame, instead enjoy this first year you have with your baby and partner and enjoy watching your little one develop from baby to toddler.
