Four Baby VS First Baby
The same beach, the same mum, six years on!
What have I learnt?
-People love to tell you their opinion and make it sound like fact. This starts in pregnancy!
-Not all mums with babies the same age are ‘your people ‘ and that’s ok.
-There’s loads of things you really don’t need to buy for baby e.g. top and tail bowl, baby shoes
-Breastfeeding isn’t one bit what I thought it would be. It’s hard, yes but so rewarding!
-Other mums are not judging. We are all far too bothered with what’s going on in our own lives.
-Not all babies sleep through from 6 weeks! (First baby was a total fluke sadly!!!!)
-Everyone has tough days and it’s ok not to love every minute of being a parent.
-Slings make life easier and are not as complex as they look.
-I CAN wait. First baby- I can’t wait for you to eat, crawl, walk.
Fourth baby- stay tiny, take your time, let me breath in your tininess.
-First baby or fourth baby, we are all learning as we go!
-Motherhood changes you. Not in a scary, loosing yourself kinda way. But In a beautiful evolution of an enhanced you.
-The principles of hypnobirthing apply beyond the birth. Such as making informed decisions, calmness helps things flow, looking after yourself, feeling supported etc
-And they were right… Babies really do grow too quickly!!!!
