I'm 19 I have a baby girl and before that I'd never even held a baby let alone look after one!! But as soon as she came along and the visiting time was over in hospital (and i had her to myself) it was so exciting, everything came naturally, i loved showing her to everyone, walking round with her in my arms, feeding her, winding her, changing her bum. I felt like a proper little mummy! she gradually starts learning new things and every day is different. Its the best and most worthwhile job a woman can do. Keep in touch, u can ask me anything. and i mean ANYTHING i wont laugh honest xx

i had my first just before i turned 21! personally i dont think it matters on ur age, everyone with struggle to get used to a new baby as they have never had a baby 24/7 before! u learn from ur mistakes. take advice if u think it will work for u but im sure a lot of things will come naturally to u!

hiya my name is amanda, i was 20 when i had my daughter, i also had the support of my family. i was soo scared, as i never really new wat to do if a baby came along. but as soon as i had her everything came naturally, having my daughter is 1 of the proudest moments of my life. she is my whole world. i love being a mummy, and now im pregnant with my 2nd and i cudnt be happier. your family will be ther 4 u no matter what, but as soon as your baby arrives, ur mothering insticts just kick in
