New Baby Links

I had an "Ah-Ha Moment" this morning: I remember very little of the first day after Little K was born. Not to say I don't have any memories of that time. It's just awash with family visitors and the time I woke up to her crying in the middle of the night and not being able to find my glasses in a dark, unfamiliar room.

Anyway, I thought it would be smart to read up on those first 24 hours. I know my experience will, hopefully, be different than these mothers since I'll be home instead of at a hospital. But still, it seems like a good idea to be prepared.

Below are links to the articles I've read. If you have any recommendations, I would love to hear them!
