HI there... so I'm a first time Mom, and my son is 5 weeks old. I'm starting to really get anxious over what I think is nothing and everything.
If he's asleep, I'm wondering if he's sleeping too long. If he's awake but not crying, I'm wondering why he's so calm and happy and not really doing anything. If he's crying, I'm trying to figure out why and get it to stop. If he's feeding, I"m worried he's not getting enough, or getting too much milk.
His schedule recently changed so that now he's feeding every 3 hours instead of every 2. And I'm freaking out that he's not getting enough milk, even though I am feeding on demand until he stops eating.
I'm worried he's not getting enough face time, enough singing time, that he's not moving enough.
ARGH! There's no way to know that I'm doing it all correctly, except he's gaining weight and not screaming all the time and making eye contact and smiles at people. Otherwise, what can I do to CALM DOWN? Please, any tips?
