Since our baby was premature, she was in NICU for 5 days due to sugar fluctuations; Breastmilk production, extraction to be given in NICU; had to keep her in certain temperature for first few weeks; only sponge bath for almost 1.5 months ( where people asked to give oil bath n doctors asked not to.. we went with doctor's advice) ; finding dress that fit her; Asking visitors to use hand sanitizer before touching baby; handling Anxiety when visitors with cough / cold/ fever came; Not to get offended when people commented that she is tiny; Increasing her weight by hourly feed and formula combination - an hour or two sleep per day for almost two months which resulted in back pain later - that almost made me bedridden for a day;

Now she is almost nearing baseline weight at 8 months. She has this special smile only for me; she is real fighter - has overcome so many obstacles; Makes my days special; except that she is not chubby , she is now active and reaching milestones as expected.

Hey new mom's. hope you all are doing well and let's all hang in there. the better days will come .
post portam depression is a real thing and is very common is something I came to realise once I delivered by baby girl .
I was so paranoid all the time . felt like I am the worst mother which in turn effected my health and also effected me taking care of my baby.
where i could enjoy the amazing moments with her I just was getting worried and irritated.
But seek help .. it makes you stronger not week. when I started asking for help and received it i felt my burdan reduced drastically, took care of my health and started enjoying the moments.
it still gets tough sometimes , but have started dividing some work to my mom and husband.

It brings a lot of stress during this time, plus sleep deprivation. it's important to have support during this time. Househelp is mandatory required. Being a working women, I often feel guilty that I'm not able to give my full time for my baby. I am working from home, but working effectively with less sleep is really difficult. It took months to find a baby sitter which made it even more stressful

It feels really inspiring to read about challenges other moms have faced during the post partum period. I am the mother of a 3-months-old baby boy. My delivery experience was horrible as after almost 24 hours of contractions trying for normal delivery, I went for caeserian. After delivery, I traveled home for just a couple of months but came back last month as I was missing my hubby and he was missing both of us. Since then it has been extremely challenging, with me trying to manage my baby's every need and also my own health as I am still suffering from back pain n headaches.
Reading these posts have given me hope. That there are more like me n these days shall pass. Please like if you loved what I shared. Keep more coming!
later days these are all sweet memories to keep life long
