New Mom- WAKE UP CALL
Sooo this post isn’t really for gaining advice but actually confirming that I’m not alone.
Did anyone else know, prior to having a baby, how many things we’d actually go through?!
I mean, people told me “you’ll never sleep again” (true) and they told me their labor and delivery stories but DAMN!
“she may have trouble with certain formulas” (I thought all babies ate the same)
“There will be sleep regressions” (that’s a thing??)
“She may cry for 2 hours straight” (for what though?)
“You may not produce enough milk to breastfeed” (GREATTT)
“Overtired, overstimulated” (okay, and how do I balance that??)
“Wake windows” (What the hell does that even mean?)
“Sleep sacks” (I put my baby in a sack?! 😂)
“They May have acid reflux” (babies can have that?)
“She’ll be happy one day and unable to soothe the next” (HELPPP)
“Colic” (don’t know what that is and apparently neither does anyone else)
“No naps one day and sleeping all day the next” (oh okay, girl)
“Probiotics, gripe water” (those are things?!)
I LOVE my babe so much, but again, DAMN! These poor little babes go through more than I ever thought 😅
