I'm 22 and due with my 2nd baby and day now. I had my first when I was 16. I've left it a long time before having my next one, but its good as my eldest has just started year 1. He is almost 6 and while he is at school everyday, will be my 'baby' time. This way he wont feel left out or neglected.
I know I definatly wouldn't have survived without the help of my mum. I dropped out of high school to have him and things were a real mess. I still lived at home and lost touch with alot of my friends.
Thankfully my relationship with the father didn't last long. I am now with another man and happily settled down.
The best advise I can give you is to read lots of books. You will get advise from people as you go -some not so good advise, but remember, this is your baby and you will be the one who knows whats best. I'm being bias here, but I encourage you to breast-feed. IT really is the best thing for your baby..
