Ten things about babies you find out the hard way
Learning all about Babies!
They can go from happy and smiley to a screaming meltdown in less than a second.
Once you feel confident they can sit by themselves, they will challenge this confidence in you by suddenly falling either forward, backward or sideways with a bump. See above.
Despite their size, their cry is one of the loudest noises. Ever (and did you know they won’t actually produce any tears in the first few months of their life?)
Though tiny, their grip is very strong. Like a clamp. Or a vice. Either can hurt. A lot.
They are unable to resist poking their little dribble covered fingers up your nose. Cue pain. Again.
Babies, especially tiny ones, are very likely to pee all over you the second the nappy is off.
And never forget to ensure a boy’s bits are pointing down unless you want a leaky nappy and wet clothes.
There is a need for a muslin cloth to always be attached to your shoulder. Taking it away causes all sorts of issues that you actually need one for.
