You got a new baby? They are fun, right? Eat, sleep and poop- repeat. Just know, you are totally going to lose sleep listening to that little babe breathing. And that’s okay.
It’s okay to feel whatever you are feeling. Nervous? Anxious? Feel like you don’t love the new thing sucking the life out of you? That is fine. It is all fine. Your emotions are your emotions and not everyone reacts to the birth of a baby the same way- even if you had totally different emotions when you had your first. Don’t let anyone tell you how you are supposed to feel- you have emotions and hormones
After the disaster that was breastfeeding, I was hell-bent and determined to make all of E’s own food. And so far I would say about 99% of what she has consumed the last 5ish months has been something that I created. It has been hard work, and we still have some spare Gerbers in the pantry, but I find making her food a little adventure. It is has been fun watching her try new foods and see what she likes and doesn’t like.
Life After E- Where practical and fun meets motherhood. Here you will find my reflections, not advice. Recipes that are both handmade and quick. Crafts that are great for little ones and those that love them.
