Does it get easier?

I’m feeling so exhausted with my newborn going on 3 weeks, I hardly ever sleep, and I don’t have any energy to cook healthy and unable to workout. Does this get easier? Will I have time to focus on getting myself healthier? Will I ever sleep again? :/

You got this! I was a basket case for the first four months and things slowly but surely got better. My daughter is almost 9 months now and we've got a good routine going that leaves more room for fun. For me at least, it took for her to get more of a personality and to feed less often before I felt like it was fun. Feeding all the time in the beginning made me feel like I had no room to breathe! Keep up the great work!

It gets easier! I’m still waking up every couple hours to feed or so. My almost 6 month old baby doesn’t sleep through the night and I work full time. He’s in daycare and gets sick easily so that doesn’t help him sleep through the night either. I was dying the first few weeks and thought I was going to faint every day for the first month I went back to work but it’s better now. As long as I’m on a schedule. Hang in there!

I was in the same boat my son is 5 months it gets easier once they start sleep all night then you’ll get a good night sleep but always remember when the baby is asleep mama gets to sleep too that’s what I did when my son was in the newborn stage I slept when he slept

Absolutely. It seems hard and stressful at first. Don’t give up. It’ll all be sooo worth it and you will miss when they are little once they grow up more!!

That's what everyone tells me. My baby girl just turned a month yesterday. I understand what you are going through. For me it gets better when I see her smiling or making cute faces. (Or letting me sleep for a hour)
