I didn't have a confinement lady. Taking care of a baby is not as hard or daunting as it seems. Your baby is even more afraid than you are. It helps to have a good support system but if you will be entirely alone, do make sure you have the tools to make it easier. For example, instead of using a traditional bath tub, use one with a bath sling so you have both hands free instead of having to support a wriggly and slippery baby with one arm. Also, as much as possible, try to breast feed. There are many benefits but other than that, it is just so convenient because you won't need to prepare formula or ensure that the milk temperature is just right. There are also no bottles to wash.
