I've just had baby no 4 and believe it or not there are still so many things that I feel unsure about. I mean should I let my 2 week old fall asleep on the breast? I know the downfalls but I can't help myself. Why am I rocking the baby to sleep, when I know that I'll then have the painful process of teaching her to sleep independent.

When will I have all the answers? I must adn=mit I feel a lot more relaxed in other areas i.e her crying isn't the end of the world. But I was just hoping to have all the answers by now!!!!!

never grin the next one will always throw something new in and for everything you think you already know baby brain strikes smile You just don't have that shellshock feeling when you first bring your newborn home like you do with the first.

I know your all right but I think that because I have had other new borns I feel like I should have all the answers and I don't. Today I was in tears because I'm suppose to be organising a birthday party for my eldest son for next week but feel completely ill equipped. I've cancelled now because....what was I thinking trying to get everyone to the hall on time and run a party with a newborn in toe. Too much pressure and not enough time or patience or energy.

I'll get it right one of theses days I just don't know when.

I know where you are coming from, I really do smile A big party is hard work with a 2 week old, hormones are still settling, emotions all over the place, however many dcs you have! It's early days still, cut yourself some slack. Oh and go for a McDonalds party if poss, zero organising other than turning up and providing cake grin Or get him to pick a couple of close friends to come for a special birthday tea.
