Every mum suffers the same problems in the beginning with their newborn baby and that is - you can''t put them down without lots of tears.

They just want to be close to you, so why not buy yourself a sling cheap off of ebay and wear your baby close for those first few months.

It will increase the bond you already have, making bubs feel safe and warm and you can get on with looking after the other children or anything else you need to do.
