​When my sweet Evaleigh was born I (like most new moms) was scared to death. Am I doing this right? Is this normal? What if she is sick? Ect.  The one thing I wish I would have know is so simple. Just breathe , relax, and trust your instincts .  I tried to breastfeed her , the doctor told me DO NOT give her formula or she will  not nurse. I kept trying and trying for days . Evaleigh would just scream  and scream, still was told not to give her formula that it would all work itself out . I couldn't take it so I have her formula, I could hear it hit her stomach. She was so so hungry .  Your mommy instincts know what your baby needs .  Just  trust them  and try not to worry about every single thing  you will get the hang of it !
