Day 1

Welcome Home, Little One

It’s the long-awaited first day of your baby's life. Whether you spend it in the hospital or in the company of family and friends at home, there are a few things you'll want to make sure not to miss. Your newborn may look tiny and wrinkly after nine months in the womb, but rest assured he’ll grow and change quickly. His limbs may seem bent or his head a bit pointy right now, but expect his arms and legs to straighten and the skull bones to shift into place over the next few weeks. Newborn babies often spend most of their first 24 hours sleeping, although they may scream loudly when they're not asleep. It’s natural to want to spend every minute cuddling and feeding your precious little one—after all, you'll never get to witness his first day again, so savor every second.
