I'm a fairly new parent and sometimes I have so many questions. I have two sisters that have children so I normally ask them, my mother or the doctor. Did you have questions or worry when you first became a parent or am I just paranoid?

I think it is normal for parent especially a new one like you or me. I have two little kids, even they are already three years old and one and a half yeas old now, I still ask a lot of question to my friends, or my mother about anything related to children.

You aren't paranoid. I always have a lot of questions, too. Even now that my son is almost 2, and can talk, I still ask someone else if he seems to be doing something different. I will say that the worrying did go down once he started talking well, though. When he could answer questions about where he hurt, it gave me some relief.

You are perfectly normal. I know a mother who has had her kid in to the doctor more than 20 times already and he's only 8 months old. I wasn't too bad because I had done babysitting and daycare for a few years before i had my daughter. But its a little different when its your own child. I still called my mother for some stuff.
