The first night,,,,

Noone warned us about the ” first ” night… Wow,, She wouldn’t stop crying and crying.. We cuddled, we fed, we changed her nappy.. Nothing seemed to work! Until of course her nan gave her cuddles and seemed to have the magic touch! Don’t push your loved ones away to do this on your own. I realized i wasn’t doing anything wrong as such, but the stress from me and my partner obviously rubbed off on her. Nannys really are quite special! Remember to take a deep breath, try to relax and you may just find it works magic!

  • I agree they feel our stress


  • Nanna’s just seem to have the magic touch…


  • It’s so easy to say don’t stress, and so hard to put into practice….


  • As a mum and now a nan, it is so much different I too was stressed but now I am a nan I am more relaxed and confident with my grand babies …. Unfortunately I live a distance from my daughter but I did go and stay with her for a week or so right after the birth. I am glad she allowed me to share this moment and I know she is glad I was there. So it is not just a one way street all are appreciative of the help and contact.
