Overview: Weeks 11 – 16
Here you are, a mother for three months already. Where did the last few weeks go? You’ll start to feel more accustomed to your new role with every month that passes, and the day-to-day activities that seem daunting today will be routine next week. That’s not to say you won’t be overwhelmed or confused from time to time, with brand new concerns popping up amidst the excitement.
That’s where we come in.
Continue to follow Babble’s month-by-month Baby’s First Year guide to break down everything you might be concerned about – from your baby’s new sleep schedule to introducing the bottle. There will always be varying degrees of “normal,” and perhaps some of your concerns are covered in previous or future guides (like returning to work, teething or cradle cap), but we’ll try to provide as much insight as possible into the third month with your little one. Also check in with our reader tips to find solutions for other pressing problems.
As you’re reading through these pages, remember that all of the experts, studies and guidelines aren’t nearly as important as your own motherly instincts. So read for understanding and reassurance, but also remember to listen to your own intuition. After all, moms are usually right.
