The arrival of a newborn baby is joyful, but it can also be an exhausting, stressful, exhilarating haze, which leaves you in a blurry whirlwind of nappies, feeding and sleepless nights.
Sometimes it may feel like it will never end. Each day runs into the next and you may feel like you haven’t still haven’t achieved the simplest of non-baby related tasks. Your mind feels foggy, you’re receiving conflicting advice from well meaning friends and family about sleep routines, co-sleeping, breastfeeding vs bottle feeding, to swaddle or not to swaddle..….
I believe all Mothers have a maternal instinct, trust in your instinct, trust in yourself. Listen to advice and then do what you believe is right for you and your family. After all, Mama knows best.
Sometimes it really helps just to talk it all through. If you or someone you know needs some parenting support take a look at www.mamaknowsbest.org.uk and get in touch.
