In addition to a Mom whom you trust, your pediatrician is a good person to ask for advice. When I was a first time Mom, I called my pediatrician’s office three times a week for some sort of help, and they never once acted like I was a pain in the neck, even though I’m quite certain that I must have been. They can help you with all sorts of questions, and they can help reassure you that everything is ok, which, sometimes is all you need.
Another good source of advice is baby care books and websites. Many of the most common questions are answered in these formats, and they are available whenever you need them.
Finally, trust your instincts. Even if you’re a first time Mom, you probably know what‘s best for your baby, because you know your baby best. A little advice never hurt anybody, but a little faith in yourself works wonders, too.
