There so many new things to learn when you become a mother it can be overwhelming. I think the first six weeks are. a big learning curve as you try to figure everything out and settle into some sort of routine. So much energy and focus is placed on pregnancy and birth but really they are the run up to what comes next which is motherhood. Elijah was 3 days old when it was time for his first bath under the instruction of the midwife at Fairfield hospital, we thought that the little man was going to love floating in some warm soapy water…well did we get that wrong.
