From the moment you find out you are pregnant, so many thoughts run through your mind making you feel overwhelmed, excited, confused, and happy to embark on your new journey. You will be in charge of taking care of a little baby and since you have zero experience, you may feel a bit stressed out.
While motherhood doesn’t come with a booklet and mainly comes through gaining experience from being a mother, it is also important to read about all stages of motherhood. Each phase of motherhood differs from the other; dealing with a newborn is different than dealing with an infant, toddler, or preschooler.
To help you out, we made you a list of the top parenting books to help guide you through the newborn phase of your baby’s life.
