My sister just had her baby and it is crazy how much your forget about how hard those first few days, weeks and months are.
So much pressure to breastfeed, get your body back and not to cry because your hormones, the lack of sleep and the realisation that your life is not what is use to be is making you cray-cray. (I am just speaking from personal experience, I literally cried so much when Hendrix was a newborn). No one can fully prepare you for motherhood.
What I have learnt is that nothing lasts forever and that every day is different. Motherhood is THE BEST job in the world, but it is the most challenging. It teaches you patience, love, happiness, balance and strength.
Life goes so fast. (Like i can’t believe it’s Christmas WTF!) So mama’s enjoy every moment, cry if you need to, have a glass of wine when you can and enjoy your little bubs because you literally blink and they are not a newborn anymore.💙💙
