1. Baby clothes are expensive and take up a lot of space, so plan accordingly
2. It's okay if your baby cries - they're just trying to communicate with you
3. You may not be able to sleep through the night for months after their birth because of colic or other reasons
4. There are more important things than being perfect all the time
5. It doesn't matter if you don't know what you're doing, because nobody does when they first start out!
