As a first time mom we can be surprised at how tired and overwhelmed we feel in the early days of caring for our baby.
One day blurs into the next. Each day feels like a repeat of the day before – feed, burp, diaper and try to get the baby to sleep.
Some women do not enjoy the newborn stage – and that is absolutely okay. Some women feel bored and under-stimulated being at home with their newborn – and that is okay.
If you were used to a fast paced and stimulating life before the baby, this can be a big change and adjustment. If this is not your favourite stage, know that it will get better.
A mantra that helped me get through some tough days and nights “this too shall pass”.
