New Mothers Who Are Exhausted, Know That You Are Doing Great!
Hello to the mommy who was very excited before the baby’s arrival, but now finds it’s exhausting and sometimes doesn’t know what to do. I want to say hello to the mommy who has no time to have a peaceful meal and is sleep-deprived. I also want to say hello to the mother who gets random comments on how to raise kids and what to do and what not to do, and feels depressed at times.
Even I am going through the same phase but one thing that keeps me going forward and motivated is knowing that there will be no better mom than me for my baby. I am messy, I am exhausted, and I need a break at times. Sometimes, I feel like I can’t do it all alone but I am very fortunate to have a supportive husband who does help in looking after the baby, but I also feel that is how it should be. Parenting is a two-way concept. This also helps in building a bond between your husband and the baby. As a mom of a 5-month-old baby boy, the thing that has personally helped me have a stress-free life is spending at least half an hour to one hour just for myself. Me time definitely helps you can do what you love.
Sometimes days go as per your plan but on other days everything goes haywire. I was struggling during the initial months since I am a new mommy and didn’t know what was to be done. My baby was cluster feeding and I had to sit all day feeding him which was definitely overwhelming, but I always reminded myself that I can do this and this too shall pass. I know all mommies out there face different challenges, but I don’t want you all to give up. There can be no better mom for your little one than you. Consistency is the key and knows the fact that your kids are not going to stay the same but they will grow up very fast, so always live in the moment and cherish your kids!
Take care and be safe!
