Welcome to parenthood! In these first days, your new baby won't do much except feed every two or three hours and sleep off and on around the clock. You may be feeling a little shell-shocked. That's not surprising, your body has been through a lot - and it's your cue to take these next few days as easy as you can. Your most important priority right now is to tend to your post-labour aches and pains, establish breastfeeding and spend time getting to know and love your baby. Concentrate on those basics and when your baby drifts off to sleep, try to take a rest yourself - the laundry can wait.
