"Sleep now, while you still can"

Our third class was entitled "Post-natal and early parenting". It covered a lot of stuff from what happens as soon as you've given birth up until the first few months.

Some of the things included crying, sleeping, what a normal day will look like, crying, communicating with your baby, post-natal depression, crying, community help and resources, tools and techniques you can use, and finally the fact that your baby's main method of communication is, apparently, crying.

We think that we were slightly better prepared than some of the couples in our group, (and they were all further-along than us), so that made us feel pretty good. However, we'll see just how long that smugness lasts once the BB arrives, when it'll probably be baby crying, mummy crying, daddy crying...
