There appears to be some common wisdom shared amongst new parents that is inevitably repeated each time a parent comes in contact with a newer parent.  As Winston has just hit 4 weeks old, we haven’t yet had the opportunity to stroke our imaginary beards and advise the next “generation”.  Instead, given the advice is almost always the same I’ve decided to just summarise it here knowing that everyone that I meet from now on will likely be an avid reader of this blog:

  1. They grow up so fast – take lots of photos.
  2. Try to sleep when they sleep.
  3. Support their head.
  4. Establish a routine.
  5. Be calm.


To everyone who has shared this advice with me, sorry, I got distracted when you mentioned photos.

Week 1

Week 2

Week 3

Week 4

I did consider for a moment whether it was somehow a breach of Winston’s privacy to be posting photos of him on the internet – but I’ve since realised that most people can’t tell the difference between other people’s babies anyway.
