I just want to give a virtual hi five to all the new Mums and Dad’s out there.
Some days I meet Mums and Dads who are confused by the information they’ve had, or they’re having difficulties in the early stages with feeding, sleeping, and so on. Sometimes I find Mums can feel anxious, sleep deprived or low. This is completely okay and you know what – you’re all doing just fine. It gets better and easier with time. If you need help, ask the people you trust to help you. If hey can’t help, maybe they can help to help you. Talk to someone you can trust and be honest, it’s the very first step and it really can help.
Give yourself a break. You needn’t strive for perfection because that’s just not reality, and you’re human. Take each day as it comes and be present with it because this is all new and it does get easier – oh and just know that you’re not the only ones going through this! Isn’t that a relief?
Most of all, I hope you enjoy the journey when you can, it’s pretty awesome, and extremely eventful too 🙂
