THERAPY for PPD
It’s just a stage, there’s is an end in sight.
I am Thankful everyday to my dear husband who not only has taken over with caring for our 2 year old he has taken over with household chores. ❤ it is still a rough time my baby wakes between 2 and 5 every night so far it is only been a week though. I also luckily have very little depression between my hubby, best friend, 11 year old daughter and parents. Also faith in God helps.
Do not make yourself breast feed if it's just not working for you. My supply never got to where it needed to be, so I was nursing and pumping 24/7. It got to the point where I would only have maybe 15 minutes between feedings followed by pumping before I had to start the process over again. By month 4, my body was barely producing an ounce after pumping for 20 minutes. I had no choice but to go to formula, and fought it tooth and nail. But once I saw my baby with a full belly, I realized a fed baby is the best baby. "Breast is best" is not the case with a large amount of moms, and do not feel guilty for stopping breast feeding if your body is telling you to stop. It became so much easier to manage being a new mom without that extra level of stress. It's also nice to be able to hand baby off to someone else to feed while you go take a bubble bath 🛀
Hey I have had morning sickness, acid reflux everyday, heart burn keeping me up every two hours the whole pregnancy and gestational diabetes, mental health worsening, and I still have 1 month until I have bub and fingers crossed that the rest should be abit better
I have balanced out most of my medication needs for nausea and health but having to check blood sugar and not eat what I want has been the hardest part on me as I always found happiness in food but maybe this has taught me a valuable lesson to find happiness and fun in other things in life but I truthfully notice how much of a homemade chef I truly am and what I want to offer my child as good eating habits and finding passion and fun in other things in life.
