Top Failures, Six Weeks Into Being a New Parent
Disclaimer: no babies were harmed in the making of this list.
- •Baby's first trip on the Subway, carried the stroller up the stairs with the wrong end up, baby almost slid out of bottom of bassinet.
- •The first time I gave baby a bottle, used a too fast flowing nipple, and almost drowned baby.
- •Half asleep, rocking baby to sleep after a 4am feeding with my eyes closed, only to open my eyes and look down to find baby staring at me wide awake, with a massive smile reminiscent of a horror film clown; freaked out.
- •Misjudged the distance between baby and the tummy time mat while placing baby on the tummy time mat.
