How To Be A Confident First Time Mom

My name is Bethany Layton and before my first child was born, I quit my job so I could be a full time mom. I was an only child and I had never been around children much in my lifetime, so I was nervous about being a mommy. Before my son was born, I read many books and did an enormous amount of research on child care. When my son was a few months old, I had the confidence to start taking care of other children too.
