posts for new moms
I have a couple of friends who just became first time moms. It's caused me think back on those first few days/weeks/months and how absolutely confusing it was at times. Between postpartum depression, breastfeeding, and sleep-deprivation, I was one big ball of emotions.
So I wanted to compile a list of some of my old posts that I think could be helpful in navigating through some those first moments of motherhood. This post could be mainly for me to look back on when I decide to have #2, but hopefully it can be useful to some of you right now.
10 things to know about breastfeeding
pump, pump, pump it up
let's talk about milk, baby
cry it out
how to survive the first month
i've got the (baby) blues
the blues, part 2
schedule transitions for sleeping through the night
the magic ingredient
Just know, if you feel like you're losing your mind those first few weeks (heck, months!), you're in good company.
Well, I'm taking a little blogging break for the holiday, but I'll be back on Monday. Happy Thanksgiving!
