Am I a Good Mama?
Updated: Jul 21, 2019
If you weren’t an absolutely amazing mama, you honestly wouldn’t be reading this book. The fact that you are reading this shows right there how much you care about the little human you have just created.
Give yourself some credit!
After you have your little human honestly might be harder than labor. Your body isn’t even your body anymore. Your brain is a floating marshmallow. Your emotions are a complete roller coaster.
Some days I felt like I couldn’t do it and I just wasn’t good enough. I cried because i couldn’t produce enough milk, or get her to stop crying, or have enough energy to be productive. All I wanted to do was Netflix and chill… but just chill and sleep all day, for weeks! I didn’t want to clean the house, do laundry, make dinner, shower, or even some days hold and feed my baby… how could that be?! She was beautiful and perfect! How could I already want a break?
Well sweetie, guess what, you’re not alone if you’re feeling that way and you’re not a bad mama for thinking the same things.
Wanting some alone time is totally normal and it doesn’t mean you don’t love your baby.
Throughout this whole process, the best advice I can give, that’s easier said than done is don’t forget the incredible and amazing thing you’ve just done. You my dear, are amazing!!
