Your baby's been here just a week, but it may seem as though you've lived a lifetime in that week. Lack of sleep, breastfeeding challenges, and recovery from the birth may be slowing you down. But don't despair: it will get easier! Your newborn is settling into life, still eating and sleeping around the clock, it will take her some time to distinguish day from night. She's probably also spending a few hours each day quietly and alertly absorbing her new environment.
