Hi there and congratulations...You are a very strong person if you are about to be mother at such a young age. Unfortunately, I am still waiting for the right time to come for me so I can't talk from experience. But we have had babies in the family; that, and from what I have heard, it is a very exhausting task taking care of a little one.

I think you should find someone who has had children and ask to help you in the beginning, until you learn everything...Maybe even babysit from time to time...


good luck!

First of all I am 19 and a single mum of three kids. My mum raised me and her other 5kids since I was 3. All 6 of her kids were under 7 when she became a single mum.
It can be hard at times and I would love to help you out just tell me what you need to know. My determination came from how well my mum brought all of us 6 up. I knew I had to be strong to be so independant. Good luck and I hope I can help. In my opinion it's easier to be a single mum from the start than from half way through and I knoq that from experience

Hey
You are a very strong girl. I'm also a single mother of a little girl, she is now 5 months old. I'm 31 and it is very hard and expensive. I was so nervous at first. I didn't no how to burp her i was so scared that I might hurt her. It just comes to you. I love it now at first when there up all night I was going crazy. I bet you will do great if you have any question do not be afraid to ask someone everybody goes through it. good luck.
