What Every New Mama Needs

Whether you have a chronic illness or not, there is one thing a new mama seems to need…Reassurance that it will get better.

And it will.

It may not be at six weeks, or three months, or whatever magic age you hear touted. But it will get better.IMG_20170308_110851

One day they will sleep through the night, they’ll eat by themselves, they’ll play independently.

You’re in the trenches of motherhood, knee deep in milk and poop and tears, for such a short time. One day you’ll look up and realise it’s over. It’s better.

Your baby will learn to self settle when they’re ready. They’ll get the hang of feeding. They’ll cry less.

Enjoy those smiles that light up even the darkest of sleepless days. Enjoy the soft baby skin, the chubby cheeks, the sweet wrist rolls. I am!
