As a breastfeeding Mom, I am sure you have experienced the intense hunger and thirst that comes along with breastfeeding. This is something I was not prepared for, and was not expecting to battle with.
So, if you have been here before, you are aware that I had really really struggled with post partum depression and anxiety (read here and here). I was actually starting to wonder if I would ever feel normal again. Will these hormones ever balance? Will this anxiety and fear ever subside? Can I tackle this? Will my energy come back?
It has been something I have prayed over every single day. Just really genuinely wanting to feel better, more like me. Having the energy and happiness before Lily came along. I just wanted to be the absolute best mother for her, and the best wife for my husband.
Since becoming a mother I have realized there is a lot of judgement around both the Stay At Home Mom and the Working Mom. A lot of opinions on why one option is wrong and the other is the better choice.
Good morning Mommas! I am going to start a new series of “Q&A Sessions”. I have been getting so many emails with lots of really great questions, and this will give me opportunity to respond to them. One question I have been getting a lot is how did we get through the newborn stage, and what were our favorite products and/or tricks?
At six months of mother hood, I personally, with the hand of God of course and my husband, have sustained my child for a total of 462 days. That’s 285 days of growing this baby in the womb, and 177 days of breastfeeding. I am not asking for a pat on the back… there are billions of mothers who have done this before me, but what I am saying is that it has changed me. It has taught me things. Motherhood has turned my world upside down.
