It’s 3 a.m. You’re up for the fourth time since you fell into bed at 8pm last night.
This beautiful, amazing creature is now nestled softly in your arms, content to feel the intensity of your love as you slowly rock, back and forth, back and forth. You never could have imagined how much you would love your baby. And watching your partner care for your child only brings more joy to your overflowing heart. But you’re exhausted.
Sleep never comes for more than two hours at a time…and that’s on a good day.
You can barely remember what food tastes like hot. You feel like you’ve scored a win for the day when you manage to sneak in a shower. Naptimes are the new “deadlines” you find yourself scheduling your days around. Babies are just supposed to eat, sleep and poop, right? So, why are you so, well, pooped?
