hi Swati Sharma ! I can understand ur apprehensions. just like u all mothers of new borns including me have faced this dilemma whether we will be able to take care of our baby well. my girls are 8 ans 5 years old respectively and I still feel, each day is a learning experience. dear literature says a lot and so does research but trust me it's completely different from the practical one. it's this everyday experience which will make u a better parent. we all do mistakes, u too will learn a lot from yr mistakes , and take it in yr stride. God has given us this motherly instinct which will not let go anything wrong with our children. rest assured, u will do a great job and u r an awesome mother and will continue to be so.. tkcare. happy parenting!

hi swati there is no doubt in it. you are the best care taker for your kid. even I passed through same phase as I was also loving away from family due to my husband's job. just make a plan and follow it. try finishing all work like cooking when baby is asleep so when baby gets up your full concentration will be on her.

Hi Swati, If you are afraid of handling your newborn and don't have an idea to take care of your child you can enroll yourself in the childcare program. I also took the newborn care guidelines from an online platform Abudo they have excellent parenting guides. Have a look on this program https://abudo.com/our-courses/child-care/
