How to Take Care of a Newborn?

Newborns typically sleep 14-16 hours a day so the most important thing is to make sure you rest while they do! Keep them warm, dry, and well fed (normally 1-2 ounces when just coming home from the hospital) and it is a pretty good idea to swaddle the baby for at least the first month. NEVER let the baby sleep in bed with you no matter how tired you are! A bassinet next to the bed is the best thing!
