What I'm about to say, I'm sure you've heard before... But it's repeated often because it's true. No one knows what they're doing. Parenting is a constant challenge. It's like playing a game with no instruction and you get surprise rewards every now and then and new things to level up on. It's a lot of work but it's also really amazing. The first year is (in my mind) the hardest. Keep in mind that most everything is a phase and you'll get through it. Be honest about your feelings and your struggles. PPA/D are very real and it's important to get outside help for that. For most everything else, lean on other parents. You're not alone.
