Before, we were responsible for ourselves. Now, we're responsible for a helpless new creature. Before, we worried about making a living, buying a house, and saving for retirement. Now, we also worry about launching a whole new person. We wonder what on earth we've done. We wonder when we'll get our life back. We wonder what will become of the relationship with our partner which we've built for so long and with so much commitment. We can't wait for them to become toddlers because at least then they'll be a little bit mobile.
These concerns are natural. For most of us, the biggest change we'll make in our lives is the change to being a parent. We need help putting it all in perspective. We need someone to tell us what's normal. We need practical help with the new challenges we're facing -- sleeping, eating, and keeping our sanity.
