I will be one, but I'm not yet,

I'm somewhat like, but not a pet,

My needs are few, but frequent,

I'm still quite new, what an event!

What am I?

Hint (Sort of):

And what might my name be?

You're a

Baby

I will be one, but I'm not yet,

You'll be a person when you're born but you're not born yet

I'm somewhat like, but not a pet,

A baby needs to be cared for like a pet but isn't a pet

My needs are few, but frequent,

A baby needs to be fed and nappy changed but not much else

I'm still quite new, what an event!

Childbirth is a big, sometimes long event but with a celebration at the end
