Nothing like being deep in the early postpartum period. When things are great but hard, when you’re still running on the adrenaline of having a new baby, still figuring things out but also still trying to recover from birth while also finding your new normal.
This period is hard, whether you’re doing it for the first time, or the 10th time, this is still the first time you’re doing it with THIS baby. Give yourself some grace, know that this too shall pass, and while the days may be long, this period is going to fly.
So, soak up that newborn smell, wipe off the spit, bask in those tiny sleep smiles, nap when you can, eat when you have a minute and don’t forget that you are the best mom in the world.
