A rough couple of weeks! Not only are you new at being a parent, but your baby is new at being out of the womb. EVERYONE has to adjust! Coffee really helped for my husband and I! We never thought the exhaustion would end

You can expect broken sleep, sometimes confusion on what the baby needs, learning their cries and cues, messing diapers, spit up, and emotions that run high! Try to be open and honest with your partner or family on what YOU, as a Mama, need help with.. don't try to do it all yourself. You might expect some pain from healing, soreness and just overall exhaustion.. it's all normal.

Being a parent is a responsibility unlike any you've had to do before. Don't panic when everything becomes scary and new. That little tiny thing depends on you 110% and will for some time... and you CAN do it

When I brought home my second child, it was easier for me to sort of get him on a routine because I have already been through this part once already. I am not nearly as tired as I was when I brought home my first child. Yes I am up on and off at night to feed him but he goes right back to bed for me after he is done nursing. I have found that a routine is key, and makes things so much easier on you and baby will learn to know what to expect.

We all do. Correct them and forgive yourself IMMEDIATELY! Motherhood is a journey...we're all learning along the way.
