You have a little new person in your life and your life is all topsy turvy. Between changing diapers, feeding your baby, and catching a few winks when you do find a moment of peace you want to just be. However, if you feel like it, do pick up a book and read it to your little one. It gets easier with time. Once the baby is three months old, she usually has a routine. Reading to her will be much easier then. And once it starts it is the most fulfilling bonding experience ever.
